    I have an Aiptek Pocket Cam and cannot get it to power on. I have put in two new sets of batteries so I know that is not the problem. The green light does come on when I have it connected to the computer and it will show no music files at that time. Any suggestions.

    Have used the Cam till all the power exhausted, then I tried to charge it using the adapter. But the Camcoder is not charging.

  • Anonymous Aug 19, 2008

    haven't used the cam in years. plugged it so it can get it to charge but the charge indicator light won't turn on and the cam won't turn on either so I thought the battery could juz be dead. So, I bought a new battery pack and the round battery. Still won't turn on after I connect the charger. Charge indicator light still won't turn on. I don't know what else could be the problem.

    Haven't used the camera for about a year. Finally found a charger for the battery, verified batteries have voltage but camera still won't turn on.

    my VLz3U camera will not charge either. bought a new battery, had the adapter checked. the charge light will not come on, nor will it power on with the adapter plugged in, It does flash for a split second (internal light) but goes off right away.

    Used my TRV250 4 days ago, packed it with luggage and flew back home, tried to turn it on and nothing responds. Even when I hook it up to the charger or use the back-up battery: nothing.  ?

Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.

I checked the ac adapter you know the square thingy that connects to the other ac cable, well came to find out that the other cable wasn't all the way plugged in the square thing, so next time someone has a problem with the power make sure everything is plugged in right. thanx

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

DELL E1705 model. When connecting AC adapter, even before pressing power button, led in power adapter goes off immediately. Why ? The power adapter is OK. When connected with Battery, no switch-on.


Since the system is not working ion both battery and the adaptor it could be a faulty motherboard.. Call dell @18006249896 if you are in warranty.. Contact local tech if thr\e system is out of warranty....

My laptop HP Pavillion ZV6000, battery started decreasing and wouldn't charge when the ac adapter was connected. I purchased another ac adapter thinking that was my problem. It didn't work. Now I have...


As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.

If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.

You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following

1. Right Click the Desktop
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Screen Saver tab
4. Click the Power button
5. Click the Power Meter tab

This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.

I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.

Hope this helps
