Dell XPS 17 L702X New Dell Battery Installed - Battery light flashing

Jump to solution

I just purchased a new battery from Dell and installed it. The battery light is flashing orange (4 times) and then white. Battery meter says "Battery Charging Disabled". How can I get my new battery to charge and work properly?

I have a few more suggestions:

Method 1

Please turn off battery charging in the battery meter and then power off system. Disconnect AC adapter, wait a few minutes, connect adapter and then power on system. Turn on battery charging again, power off system and then power on, hopefully battery charging is enable now.

Method 2:

1. Power off system, remove AC adapter & Battery, and then press and hold down the 'Power On' button for 15 seconds to release Status Flea Power, wait a few minutes, install battery and adapter into system.

2. Power on system, quickly start tapping F2 key continuously. In  BIOS setup, Reset the BIOS to Default Values.

Same does happen on my 17R 5720 sometimes,

Simple fix is just remove the battery and re-insert in and plug the DC plug back in and it should be fixed.
