Question about Medion Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Medion notebook under warranty less than a year old it was plugged in and charging yesterday when there was sparks coming from the charger slot, and a few sparks were released. This had given me a bit of an electric shock. Then screen had gone black and the power had cut out. the main laptop itself works, but when you plug in a charger it cuts out. also, when you plug in the charger and then turn it on sparks have been released from the mains power plug, and the laptop doesn't accept the charger. in addition, if you take out the end of the charger, even after being plugged in for a matter of seconds, it is extremely and uncharacteristically hot. This had also happened to my brother's laptop less than 6 months ago. is it a design fault, can it be fixed, and can i get a refund/new computer?!

Sounds like the charge socket is not properly seated on the motherboard. I would call customer service on where you bought the laptop and tell them the situation. But by all mean DO NO continue to use it. You may do damage that they say "Is your fault"

Trust me I have had clients that have "Been there .. done that"

Good luck

If your battery is six years old, it has done very well and you have looked after it. I would think that a new charger will fix your problem.

Battery charger indicating that batteries are fully charged, but battery meter on the scooter shows no power at all. also the lights, indicaters etc arent working, im presuming that is resulting from the...

With a Pride Scooter the charger will turn green if its fully charged and if there is a bad connection in the wiring with the batteries. If you plug in the charger and the light comes on green right away then there is a problem with the wiring or connections. Take a voltmeter and read the voltage at each battery. Fully charged they should be 13-15 volts each. If they are less than 12 volts then they are not charged and the charger is not working correctly. If the batteries are really low like less than 8 volts each then the scooter might not come on at all. If you find that the batteries have at least 12 volts or more then there is a wiring problem from the rear of the scooter to the front tiller. Pride has a habit of developing problems in the harness running from the rear to the tiller. My suggestion is to contact your provider (where you got the scooter) and have them troubleshoot the scooter. If the scooter is less than a year old then it should be under warranty and your provider will have to fix it under warranty. Sorry I don't have a quick fix for you but scooters are notoriously bad to troubleshoot and repair, especially long distance. Hope this helps you

Phone does not except charger

I work at an AT&T store--if you were to bring this into the store we would check to see if it would accept a charge from another charger we have in the store. If it does accept the charge we would see how long you have had the phone. If you've had the phone for less than one year the charger is under manufacturer warranty and an AT&T Corporate store would replace the charger for free. If you are out of warranty you would have to purchase a new charger.

If the phone does accept the charge from our charger--it would be deemed a "phone problem" same thing--if your phone is less than one year old, and there is no physical damage we would replace it via warranty which is (1-800-801-1101) If it is not under warranty we would then check if you had insurance (if you do have insurance it's a 50$ deductible to appear on your next month bill.) if you don't have insurance we would check to see if you're eligible for upgrade. (You can dial *NEW# from your cell phone for a free text to see upgrade date.) If you're eligible for upgrade you can get a new phone discounted to you if you agree to sign a new two year contract. If you're not down to sign--then you're stuck using an old AT&T phone you may have, or buying one at the no commitment price.

My battery is not charging

Does your charger's lights come on and does the second light turn green after an overnite charge? If not then you will need to contact your provider and tell them about the problem it should be under warranty if your chair is less than a year old. Hope this helps you
