You may need to replace the battery. The battery is not holding charge so it is likely bad; but worse, it may be overloading the supply and keeping the unit from starting. Some supplies will not operate without a battery in place. If it worked previously, then you are fairly safe in the battery investment. If you don't know if it works, you will have to decide, as a starting with a fresh battery may still uncover other problems.

Hi, I've had my Acer aspire laptop for a few years now, but I haven't used it for over a year (Because I got a desktop). So when I've come to turn it on today, It won't work. The screen...


Start with pulling the battery and power, then hold the power button in for about 30-40 seconds. Then plug the power back in (still no battery). Try to power up the computer. If it boots, shut it down and put the battery in and try again. If it boots the issue was cleared. If it boots with the power cord but not with the battery added, you have a battery issue.

Hope this helps

Hello try pushing the power buttom again as most laptops go into a sleep mode when lefton and no one has touch them for a few minutes . If that doesn't work, maybe it's defective and such be brough back to the supplier for replacement or refund ( don't forget the receipt )

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

Have pluged in charger in laptop but it will not charge. have tried the charger on the other laptop and the charger is working


Hi, If Battery Light is blinking orange, then it could be that your battery is toast and that you need a new battery. That'll cost you about $50.00 for a new one.

I have a canon bjp 3000 and it is showing a 7 orange light flash and will not respond to and anything


Try the following steps to reset printer:
1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data

Should that fail, unplug the printer from AC power source (wall socket) and from PC. Wait about 5 minutes, replug and reconnect to PC and power on.

If even this does not work, there is a problem with the printer's logic board, and you will either need to get it serviced, or buy a new one (whichever works out cheaper for you...)

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

My battery has stopped charging, and the battery charge light flashes green, then yellow. Is it the battery or charger?


I'm assuming you mean the battery of a laptop. Laptop batteries have a shelf life, which is shortened if the laptop is constantly plugged in the wall. By the same token, if your laptop is constantly plugged in the wall, you don't really need a new battery. (They cost upwards of $80)

I have a laptop and there seems to be a light currently flashing orange along the front. Ive searched everywhere to find out whats happened but the laptop won't switch on at all. Its a toshiba Prestege...


The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.
