I have an old Latitude 100L that had a loose AC plug. I took it apart, re-attched the AC bit to the motherboard and put it back together. When I went to turn it on, I plugged in the power cord (since the batteries are dead from not having the ac plug work) and now I get a blinking power light and a blinking battery light.

Any ideas??

Have you tried powering it on without the battery in the laptop?

Are you sure you didn't "cross-solder" the back 3 pins on the jack?

Yea.. I tried with and without the battery in with the same results :-/ I'm 99% sure I didn't cross solder as I was really careful about it.

Have a question about the soldering.

When you turned the board over and resoldered the connections, were the outer two rear pins loose and look like they had a black residue around them from "arcing"?

Also, the center rear pin, was it loose at all?

Thanks,
