Re: AC Adapter Connection Erratic Instead of Constant

2017-12-15, 21:37 PM

I did try jiggling it and didn’t solve the problem. I was able to get it to charge for about 5 second intervals - charge for 5 seconds, then goes off (as if I physically unplugged it)... repeats that cycle over and over again. I pressed the reset at the back of the computer and was able to get it to turn on despite battery being at 0%. Lifted the AC adapter where it connects to the computer— not sure if that helped but it started to charge a little so now I’m leaving it alone to hopefully come to a full charge.


will get a new AC adapter from Office Depot later today and see if that helps. I’ll post back with the results.
