Question about Gateway CX200S Tablet PC

1 Answer

Battery fails to charge completely

My battery will only charge to 44%. I have tried the smart battery auto-learning command, it didn't work. So, I tried to run the batter completely down and re-charge it. Neither solution worked. So I tried the smart battery auto-learning command again and it has been running for 17 hours and the battery is still at 44% charged and the process says it is only 14% complete. Is this amount of time normal? How long should this process take?

It sounds to me as if your battery is faulty. No way should it take 17 hours to charge. The battery is abviously not absorbing the charge and this could be because one or more cells are defunct. You can just wait until it fails completely or look at getting a replacement before this happens.

My Kindle Fire hdx 8.9 turn on. I pressed button for 40 seconds but it did not work.


Most Kindles only take a brief touch of the on/off button Have you tried charging it? Try plugging it in for a few minutes and then try to turn on. If it works while plugged in then leave it to fully charge. If it fails to hold the charge then take it with you to a place like Best Buy or Batteries Plus. That's the quickest way to get anew battery and be sure it's the right one. I'm sure either one of those could test the old battery before you buy a new one. You could also order one from Amazon.
I've had my Paperwhite for about 6 years, charged at least once a month and still haven't changed the battery.

Nextbook8 on charger 8 hours. An only 60% charged this time?


Good evening
This happened to my iPad. When I discovered that there were many programs open, I closed them and it charged.
hope this works for you as it did for me. Some one told me that it was a good idea to plug the tablet to a computer and charge it that way.

How can I get my Samsung Galaxy Tablet to turn on. The battery is fully charged.


There is usually a method such as holding the on button for a longer period of time. If it is easy to do the other thing that I've found with all sorts of "smart" devices which turn "not-so-smart" is to remove the battery for a minute or so, then put it back in. Many times the unit will turn on as soon as the battery is reinstalled and work correctly again after that. Last ditch effort, unless someone knows about the Galaxy, is a hard reset, there may be a reset button somewhere on the unit, I don't think the Galaxy has a reset button. If the unit still does not turn on it may need servicing.
1. Try the on button for 15 - 20 seconds if you know it is charged
2. Try charging for an hour or two then the 15-20 second hold on button, #1 above.
3. Removed battery (I'd measure the battery voltage while I have it out) wait ~1 - 2 minutes & reinstall the battery. If it doesn't turn on by itself try #1.
4. Nothing works start a service ticket with Samsung, URL:
http://support-us.samsung.com
You might try searching there as well for an answer to see if there's anything I missed.

Why does innotab charging light blink when charging and will not charge?


the charge imdicator is suppose to blink when you plug the toy to the wall adaptor. if it doesnt blink then there's something wrong with either the adaptor, the adaptor port on the toy or the rechargeable power packs. now i said that the light is suppose to blink. but the frequency of the blinks shouldnt be fast. if that's the case clean the compartments and re-insert the batteries. if you are still having problems try the ff T/S:

1)remove the power packs, plug the toy to adaptor and turn it on. if it turns on that means your adaptor is working.
2)remove the adaptor and try using just the power packs.
3)try using 4aa batteries.

if the toy turns on with only one of the power sources stated above you better call vtech hotline.

If i took a break from my ipad to answer the phone and talked for 5 to 10 minutes, how do i get it to shut down in about 1.5 minutes. it did this before, and now it does not shut down. why?


Set the auto lock for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that the iPad will not auto sleep and lock during certain application evolutions, like video, game application etc.

if it's just sitting at the spring board, it will auto lock at the specified time interval. 993eeec1-2ff2-4698-acad-f9b1e7b2d782.jpg imthemobile guru
