    there is no corrosion or bent pins...
    The strange thing is that the battery works when I remove the laptop from docking station but I need to charge it with another laptop

    Hi All,

    Been looking through the forum and this thread but couldn't find a real answer.

    I just received my refurb 8560w 2 days ago, and it won't power on today.

    Only the power led (lightning bolt) is flashing white/red when the AC adapter is connected.
    I don't have a battery that I can place as I still have to order that.

    But it won't do anything except have that light blinking.

    I already removed the cell battery as I thought it might be a BIOS problem and then tried powering it on with AC adapter, to no effect.

    I Also measured through the power adapter (120W) and measured 19.5V on the inner sleeve, and 16.1V on the center pin, which I don't know if that might be the problem.

    I already contacted the seller, and HP support as it still is under warranty, but as I live in the Netherlands, and is bought in the US I don't like to have it shipped back-forth again (still have to receive an answer from both).

    If anyone can enlighten me, much appreciated.

    No worldwide warranty, HP.nl doesn't service it since it's not originally from EU area?

    I registered the 8560w at the dutch HP site, but was transfered to the US support site where I could place the service request as wel as select the Netherlands as country of product location. I received a confirmation from the Dutch support, so it's linked somehow, so I hope Dutch support will reply to me.
    Still have 60 days warranty from the seller, but as said, would hate to have it shipped back/forth.

    But getting back on the issue, anyone know the white/red lightning bolt blink indication?

    Well, I'm happy at the moment, and very pleased with HP service.
    They called me just yet, informing me that they will pick up the unit tomorrow with their courier and repair will take 5-12 workdays.

    All under warranty.

    I see some of 8570w on eBay within range of prices like $850-$950.
    Here is one of examples: HP EliteBook 8570W 15 6" 750 GB Intel Core i7 3rd Gen 2 7 GHz 16GB | eBay
    Based on the warranty end date, that machine should have been manufactured back to Oct-2013.
    Is there anything wrong with those machines?
    It seems people bought them for about $2.5K, why they are selling them just for $850-950?

    Thanks.

    Ok, so it appears I have a broken AC Adapter and is exchanged by HP.
    The workstation is back on its way to me.
    Now I want to buy a battery, but I see different voltages that are offered on ebay supposed to be compatible with it, 10.8 and 14.4 V.
    So are both voltages compatible?
