My Z took to NOT charging. Sometimes the charge light would be on and sometimes not, either way battery would not charge in C760. Same battery would charge in 5500 after cutting nose off to do a charge test. After MUCH looking I found that power connection on C760 was very slightly loose on the inside back. Tacking case apart I found that the inside lead on the back of the connector was not solidered in very well and the solider had come loose from the wire. This could only be seen on the underside of the board (held in place by four black flat head screws on my unit) as that is the side which is solidered. Used SMALL iron and a VERY TINY amount of additional solider and my C760 now works JUST LIKE NEW. This post is just a hint of direction for others who can pinpoint that they have the same problem however BE VERY CAREFUL if you attempt the same fix as these boards are VERY easily damaged with either too much HEAT or SOLIDER, use care and proceed AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I had exactly the same problem, and fixed it in exactly the same way. The problem has come back though, so I'm contemplating doing another soldering fix. Seems like this could be a common issue.
