Dell Latitude Z a/c charger shuts off when battery is in

Latitude Z 600

minor liquid spill while computer was off and not plugged in- mainly hit the a/c jack - female input of laptop

problem then was laptop now ONLY works on a) battery alone without a/c charger or b) a/c alone without battery

otherwise with battery in and a/c plugged in the a/c charger shuts off

tried starting up on a/c and then plugging in battery BUT NO GOOD - a/c charger cut power - same with the opposite running on battery and then plugging in a/c adaptor - adapter shuts off

NO PROBLEM REVEALED ON DIAGNOSTICS - NO OTHER PROBLEM WITH COMPUTER

I just replaced the laptop power-in jack - this did not fix problem

Can't flash the BIOS which requires both a/c plugged in and battery

HELP -

RE: Dell Latitude Z a/c charger shuts off when battery is in

While it's possible the battery was damaged, it's far more likely the problem is a blown charge circuit on the system board.

Next logical step - replace the mainboard.
