Dell Latitude D600 Power Button Not Working
I suspect a VCC to Ground short, but still have more testing to do on dead boards. Some if it does turn on then odds are that the solder joints on the bios chip (which is below the f7/f8 keys) are bad. I pushed down on the plastic just below the start button and sure enough, started right up. Has anyone this problem or know what may be wrong. Source
The laptop was free from work so I'm not losing too much. None worked but possibly for you (it worked for me) came up with one more solution. The next step is to take it apart and find the connection issue. Light #3: Flashes only when RAM Modules are not plugged in. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/52838-2-latitude-d600-turn
Still nothing. It works for now.. :) Thanks! Give it a shot. Bilbo May 2009 Add one more D600 fixed -It would not boot, but worked fine by pushing on the docking connector.
I'd like to try supergluing the chip that Aussie said to solder, but which one is it? The piece with the power button, volume buttons etc. Then I hit the power button and away it went. I dont know why it did not worked just pressing the back part of the green board but finally it worked when I pulled the front part of it and pressed
This way frustrated unsuspecting people go buy a new laptop. Holy cow. Oliver June 2009 I found this thread to be very useful and one of my D600's now is fixed using the ram module swap. over here First time?
Being a member gives you detailed monitoring of your requests. When this is done you can se the circuitboard with the power switch. I found that using these tools, it was probably easier that I thought it would be, but you do have to be very careful and precise. When I read about the trick with the memory, I tried putting pressure on the memory sticks and my computer turned on.
my daughter has had the same problem and I was racking my brain trying to come up with answers. http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-2030252/replace-power-button-switch-dell-latitude-d600-laptop.html It eventually died completely so I started stripping it down, and every now and then I would try and fire it up as I removed more and more bits. Guillermo Saldana February 2010 I have had a similar problem with my D600 for a couple of years now. joro1963 January 2010 Hold down F9 & F10 while pressing power button works.
- Brawny Guy November 2009 hey guys...
- I pressed around the power on button and it booted ( thanks to this thread).
- mend, fix, or repair just about anything.
If I tried to turn it with the battery full charge it does not turn on2. Before i did this, it stopped going on at all. And they had to be pushed in to extreme. http://elliottwaveresearch.com/dell-latitude/dell-latitude-d600-usb-not-working.html Proffitt Forum moderator / November 25, 2008 10:40 AM PST In reply to: Dell Latitude D600 wont start!!
cookie November 2010 I respect the greatest inspiring genius with the name “OBSERVATANT ONE” for his investigation on EOL (End of Live) power-on count and “NOMAD” Got it right too. So if your d600 (perhaps other models as well) isn't coming on, power it down/unplug, freeze it for 20 minutes or so and try again and you'll have better results. HAHA!
Hope this helps.
Sean, another Dell victim December 2008 I had the same, the green LED "A" light flashed several times then it would shut down. I had to start it by this method until I downloaded the 2006 version of the Truemobile WLAN install driver R143355, and the R114079 Intel Chipset Install. I got so frustrated (and i have a new computer on the way anyway and just need this one working to transfer data) so i punched it right on the RAM http://elliottwaveresearch.com/dell-latitude/dell-latitude-d600-microphone-not-working.html This EOL code is encoded in the BIOS.
For those who don't want to scroll all the way down (because so many people like myself have thanked Joe Kirshner) The solution is to press the bottom of the laptop Add to Want to watch this again later?

A contact fault for sure. Corona July 2013 The socket that the button board plugs into is the problem. The pressing on the F9 and F10 keys are only moving the connections under the Key pad. Stripped mine down about 3 times now..hope this will be the last...I should be so lucky..
Reseating the RAM may work. My dad just happens to be a VERY good lawyer! (obviously I'm not gonna buy a new one after my awesome speech, and none of these things worked, but I don't It's free and easy. I have a 6 year old Dell Precison M60 and the F9 & F10 press WORKED!!!
If the cap lock light is blinking and then turns off, count the number of times it blinks. A guy gave me this laptop because he didnt want to deal with sending it to get fixed. loose power switch---white loose power socket--lots of pins here! I have a Dell 600 and it has this issue.
what i do is grip the side where the ports are located and then turn it on. this port seems (based on my expierence and others here) needs pressure applied to make it work. All three lights to the left of the main ON/OFF button come on for a second or two then go out. snorlax July 2009 thanks to everyone that made suggestions - the tissues didn't work but took the RAM out of slot A and haven't had a problem since....
