A problem I have is that I don't know what or how to check for this particular problem. I'm looking in the Owners Manual and also the Service Manual, and the only thing I can find that MIGHT be what I'm after is the Diagnostics Tool. The documentation for the Diagnostics Tool only says that there are tests and subtests but doesn't say anything about what it tests, or how to interpret the tests. So I could run it in the hope that it is set up to identify the battery charging problem, but I'm in the dark because the documentation doesn't give me any details about the test itself.
In the rest of the documentation, for example the Troubleshooting section on Power problems, it only gives very general directions like try pressing the test button on the battery, check the AC adapter, etc.
For a symptom such as this (a brand new battery will not charge), I guess the possible reasons are most likely:
1. AC adapter
Are there other possible causes?
Even if there are, at least I'd like to check for these 2. But I have no idea how to.
I don't want to go run this Diagnostics Tool if it's not going to be able to positively identify problems that exist in those 2 areas.
