Amilo Pi 1536 Charger/Battery Heat problem :(

Postby david99126 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 7:59 am

Hi guys, new to the forum.

My girlfriend owns a Amilo Pi 1536, she's had for about 2years and never had any major issues with it.

But in the recent month or so, theres been quite serious problem. The charger connector (the metal/plastic bit that connects charger and laptop) gets very very hot, touch it and you get slight burnt! The charger tip has had to be changed, the plastic had melted and smelt burnt after awhile. So, the tip's been changed and the the overheating tip is still an issue.

The laptop it self seems to be working well and quite hot, but with the norm (I think). Its just the charger connector tip that's the problem.

Any help guys!! Please!!
Could it be the charger not working correctly? The laptops PSU not up to scratch? Bios problem? ... I don't want the laptop to stop working altogether!!

PS. the laptop was bought in Spain, and we're in the UK (if that's a possible problem). Battery life isn't great. Already cleaned the laptop with compressed air and have the fans with good access to air (the laptop is on "stilts").

If your power pack doesn't become unusually hot most likely the power board (power supply unit on the main board) is defective. There's not much that you can do about it. Maybe it can be replaced seperately but it might also be that the whole main board has to be replaced.
However, do not run this notebook in its current condition! It's dangerous.

Since you are right at the frontier of your 2 years warranty you should contact the official support:,37,-Contact-address-of-FSC.html

I don't know if it's a problem that you bought the notebook in spain.
