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.

Please remember to rate this solution.

I would like to get help with this IPAD that the battery will not charge I just got this IPAD today from the seller.

First you have to verify if the charger is working. You can't charge an iPad on an iPhone charger, not a lot of people know that. Do you see the charge symbol? The charger may be weak, check it by trying to charge the iPad on another charger perhaps belonging to a friend. If that checks out, the battery has failed. Apple charges about $130 plus tax, places in the mall charge $90. If it is a used one, they fail after about 3 or 4 years. If it is new, contact the seller. Their reviews are good

Why did it shut off and doesn't restart?

Is it recharging properly, might not be charged and is auto shutting down to save data.
Check your charger is working and the connection to the tab is good.
Bad fitting USB can cause failed charge.

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:
You might try searching there as well for an answer to see if there's anything I missed.

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
