How To Fix a Beeping Laptop Charger

Laptop ac adapter is an essential accessory that comes together with your laptop. It is an AC adapter that comes with a AC cable and a DC cable that can be connected to the laptop for the purpose of charging rechargeable laptop batteries. While we may encounter some issues when we use the laptop charger. One of the commonly mentioned problem related to the laptop charger is its beeping and not charging the laptop battery. Well, there are quite a few things that might be responsible for the beeping noise of your laptop battery charger. Here in the following article that deals with the possible causes as well as solutions for a beeping laptop charger.
Possible causes for beeping noise on an ac adapter:
Many laptop users complain about their charger not working. They also say that rather than charging the laptop, it makes a loud and continuous beeping noise, which is quite disturbing. Well, there are a few reasons that might be responsible for that beeping noise. Here are the possible reasons of a beeping laptop charger:

  • Problems with Adapter
  • As we know, a laptop charger works on an AC adapter. If there is some problem with the AC adapter, your charger might start beeping. For instance, there might be a loose connection in any of the internal components of the AC adapter of your laptop. In such cases, the charger makes noise only when it is connected and on other occasions it doesn't make any noise.
  • Problems with Supply
  • If there is some problem with the AC supply where you generally place your laptop power adapter might also be the reason behind laptop battery charger beeping. The problem might lie at the internal circuit of the plug wiring itself. Hence, you need to try different plugs of the house to see if the problem is actually with the charger or the electric fitting of your dwelling.
  • Problems with Circuit
  • If there is any problem regarding the electricity circuit then it might affect working process of battery charger, which might lead to 'laptop battery beeping'. Most commonly, if the battery terminals get connected together to an extremely low resistance electricity conductor/wire, then it causes a high electricity current. As a result, the box deliver a lot of energy in a short time.
  • Problems with Charger Manufacturing
  • Another reason that might cause laptop battery beeping is if you have purchased a faulty laptop charger. Chances are that you might get a defective charger at the purchase of your laptop, which might not be deliberate. This might happen with any brand and any manufacturer. Hence, you need to make it a point to check the laptop battery and charger as soon as you purchase it, so that any defects can be identified within the warranty period.
    Solutions for Laptop Charger Beeping

    Now that you know the possible reasons for the laptop battery not charging and the charger beeping, you also need to be aware about the solutions for the same. First of all, understand the fact that there are not too many things that you can do, when you come up with this problem. The only option that you are left with is of buying a brand new charger of the same brand. If there is no problem with the electricity circuit or the power supply, the only thing that you can do is to throw away the existing charger for a brand new one. There is another thing that you can do, if your laptop charger starts beeping within the warranty period. In such cases, you can contact the dealer from where you bought the laptop. You can also directly contact the customer care cell manufacturer and demand for battery charger replacement! These are the two best solutions that you can opt for.

    1. many higher end laptops are 90 watt.but they pull less when they are not on the AC. that's why there is a big speed deference when it works on battery power Mr.SparepartsOnline

    3. This "how to fix" sucks.



      If your AC adapter beeps, 90% is that the outgoing cable from the AC adapter is damaged from the inside the cord and the wires are touching causing a short circuit, so DO NOT THROW a perfect working AC adapter just because this guy says it can not be fixed. Just take a screwdriver (if your AC adapter has screws. HP glues these things just so you can not open and fix the issue by yourself, so you can go and buy a new one. I used a knife and a hammer to open it :))) ), remove the screws, open the case, find the 2/3 wires that are going out from AC adapter to your laptop. The wires, almost surely are damaged right near the AC adapter. Just cut down the plastic/rubber that is used to protect the cable from flexing. Most probably inside that the wires are damaged. Remove the plastic shell from the wires, reconnect the wires by twisting them, isolate each wire with isolate band, put the case back and the screws, and your done. If done right it will work, and will save you a few bucks.

      Don't forget to UNPLUG the AC adapter first ;)

      Good luck!

      1. Worked like a charm. Thanks man. And please don't touch the internal components as the capacitors may still have charge and you will get a electric shock like how it happened for me. Anyhow this method works 100%. Thanks again.

    4. Florin is 100% right, I did this and it worked like a charm.

      all i can say is for me though, this was a pain, getting the thing open w/ knife and hammer method and getting the wires re-attached, compared to a brand new charger for 11 and change off of amazon. but im using it now until the charge comes in the mail!
