I had the same problem with my vizio tablet. The port came loose after the wife and kids kept playing with it. The tablet would not charge anymore. What I had to do was open the tablet and check if the little pins that connect the Micro USB port were still soldered on the circuit board. Mine were broken off so I had to replace the whole port. I couldnt even find the OEM replacement part so I had to buy a Mico USB (style B) port off ebay and made it work.

SOURCE: Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.

We contacted Motion about an issue with our docking station because our power & USB ports stopped working, or worked only intermittently. We were instructed to remove the front cover from the docking station to check the connection of the cables. We found that the cable had completely disconnected (it had evidently pulled loose from tilting the dock up and down). Once the cable was reattached, and the cover reassembled, viola! Success!

Will the tablet operate on the docking station (or power cord) without the battery in place?

If not, the power circuit on the tablet motherboard is broken.

SOURCE: Battery won't charge

Find a computer/electronics tech to solder the leads to the jack back on. I had to do that too. You just need to be careful if you, or they take it apart b/c the cable and leads are very delicate. I got it working and thought I missed something only to rip the video card out and need to buy a new motherboard on ebay, which is another idea for ya.

Why want my tablet charge Where do I return my tablet it will not charge anymore


Most common cause of this is faulty charger, the metal connector at end of wire won't connect properly to device charging port.
Test it by putting plug back in Tablet charger port and very very gently wiggle it around very slowly, see if the charging light comes on or flickers. They usually make a beeping noise when successfully charging or the screen lights up. If you get intermittent charging then it's the charger and time to get a new one. Very common, most are USB connectors or small pin types.
If it's still under warranty then send it back to the place you bought it before you try testing it.

I have the Trio 7" Dual core tablet. The battery is not charging completely, can this battery be replaced and if so where do I find the battery in the unit?


Battery replacement is possible. The battery is a flat component encased in a shiny silvery sheath behind the speaker area inside the back cover. It's mounted with double-sided (very) sticky-tape. A replacemnent battery should be sourced, having the same power specifications as well as physical dimensions. (see detailed close-up photo attached.) Replacement involves desoldering the 2 terminal wires (1 red and 1 black) which attach it to the main board, and replacing the battery with a new(er) unit.
The above having been said,I'd only replace the tablet battery if I was sure that it's the battery at fault. Here's what I'd suggest.
First, check that you're using a charger with the proper 5 Volt / 2Amp (2000milliamp) output. Also I'd suggest you use a charger designed to be plugged intothe G2 7" Dual-Core tablet's dedicated charging port. (See sample tablet charger in attached photo) The G2 tablets WILL typically accept charging output via the micro USB port, for example, from a typical cell phone charger. However typical phone chargers which will happily attach to the Trio or other similar tablets, via the micro-USB port do NOT often have the same output power specifications. This I think may cause difficulty with the tablet battery not reaching the fully-charged status. Also, the use of the USB port for charging may cause access problems if the battery power is low during some operations (eg data transfer in slave mode), as the charging port can not multitask as the USB port can. If power to the main boad is lost during such operations the tablet may become "bricked". Bottom line for me would be to use the dedicated appropriately rated charger whenever possible: it's the reccommended charging method.

Charging port loose.no longer charging on my tmax tablet


Try a different Micro-USB cable. It is usually caused by the cable's micro-USB end being loose and not the tablet's charging port. Most smartphones these days use Micro-USB so you can usually try using one of those if you have one.

Battery won't charge


Yes it will :)

If you are using a USB port on a PC or Laptop think of trying a different USB port - sometimes they put out low power;
If your laptop or PC is more than 3 years old it probably can not put out enough power on the USB to charge a tablet (any tablet).

Check to see if any of your existing wall adaptors for (say) your phones have the same micro USB connection - use it to charge your Kindle - it's totally fine.

Go to any shop in the high street and buy a Micro USB wall adaptor, they start at about 5gbp. You can get them on Amazon too.

Remember it takes about 6 hours to charge from the wall and 16 hours (yes, 16) to charge from a computer usb.

Good luck

We need a plug


The charging on the tablet depends on the model.
Most including the Kocaso 776 charge via the micro USB port, and this is a standard USB port.
So all you do is purchase a micro USB to standard USB cable and plug it into the standard USB port on the charger or a PC.
