charger doesn't change from orange to green
hi, I've got my sons g4 a1134 plugged in to charge,yet now I've had the charger plugged in for the last 24 hours and the charging indicator won't change from amber to green. i try turning on the computer, yet nothing works.no sound,picture or a simple beep. what could it be?
i havent touched it at all. I've had it packed away for a little, and pulled it out the other day and put the charge on it for about 10 minutes then tried to turn it on but still nothing. i left the charger overnight and noticed the chargers light didn't change from orange to green.just stayed orange and still is orange if i turn the charger on. nothing was spilt on it, or done any type of work on it.
Pull your battery, and if the AC light stays orange with no battery attached, you've got a bad DC-in (the socket inside the computer).
Sometimes a DC-in will discharge and reset itself if you let the computer sit without AC or battery power overnight. So if the light is still amber with no battery attached, disconnect AC and battery, let it sit overnight, and then plug in the AC tomorrow and see if anything is different. But if not, you either have a bad DC-in or a bad board. Obviously, swapping the DC-in is the first step when trying to determine which of the two it is.
There is also a slight chance your AC adapter is bad, but 98% of the situations like I described it's going to be the DC-in.
