Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on

Hi I was given this off a friend straight out of the box. Plugged it into the charger for the initial battery charge. 2 mins later the screen says "Battery Full!" I cant turn it on with being connected to mains power, it also wont charge with the USB. If the music is not playing 2 mins later it says that the battery is full. Any ideas? Thanks Wick

I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck

I have a Icraig wireless touch screen tablet model number cmp773-GD , and it won't turn on or charge. Why?

If u just got it return it. your battery is died need new one.tip to make battery last longer. when u get a new battery by itself or it is part of something like a cell phone. do not charge most have half power right out of the box. use battery until it is 100% died.then charge it until full don't over charge. it is a trick to make your battery last long when it has a full charge. never leave battery charging overnight if done to much it makes the battery weak and wont hold charge for long. never leave charging cord plugged in when its not in use. when it is power from the socket is still flowing in the charger which is slowly frying it. that why most people go though up to 4 chargers for each device. i hope this helps have a sweet one!!

How do i know when the phone has finished its initial charge

if its straight out the box, you should charge the new handset at least for a 12 hr period, (overnight) & your handset will do one of two things, stay turned on & display full battery strength,or remain off but display battery full on the screen,the longer you keep on charge (max 24hr) the longer the life of your battery.

My Nextbook wont turn on

Although it is not recommended for normal operation, try turning it on with the charger plugged in. If this works, check the battery status indicator. If it shows a full charge, try disconnecting the charger. If the Nextbook quits working, the battery is bad.
If it does not turn on, try holding the power button for five seconds, then while holding the power button on, plug in the charger and continue holding for five seconds. If nothing happens, release and press the power button again with the charger still plugged in. (This may reset the internal power management chip.) Also, try the recessed reset switch (see your owner's manual).
If none of this works, verify that the charger unit is good. The simplest and safest method is to measure the output voltage on the output plug with a digital multi-meter while the charger is plugged into an AC outlet. It should be within 5% of the nominal output voltage on the charger label.
The most common power problems are battery failure, broken charger wire (usually next to the plug or the power conversion box), or broken charger jack in the unit.

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...

Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!

Samsung sgh-a707 won't stay on. Shuts off when batt seems full.

try to go to a local store or through your service provider to run a test on the battery that you are using. It might be defective, tyr using a different battery for the phone. If using a different battery would not resolve this issue, it means that the phone needs service.

Battery wont charge

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Hi Kane

When a battery gets really low, it may not take a charge straight away, leave it connected for several hours, it may come back. If not, a new battery is in order, and a charger I guess also:)
