  2. Then confirm that the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct.

From hardware, this helps to identify whether you should replace the battery pack or not.

  1. Power off the system.
  2. Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between terminals one (+) and seven (-). There are seven terminals totally. See the illustration below.

3. If the voltage is still less than 7.5V after recharging, replace the battery.

If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack. After the battery pack returns to room temperature, reinstall it to the system.

If the charge indicator does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the AC/DC charger board.
