My Nextbook NX007HD was working fine until battery went dead. Have been trying to charge it and blank white screen. Comes on with some lines. Comes on automatically. Like. This when charging and not easy...


You could try charging it using your computer's usb port as a charger. Plug it in and leave it charging overnight.
This is because the computer usb port limits current to 500mA, maybe you can do a slow charge and revive it.
Looks like witchcraft, but worked for me.

W385 not charging off computer


you have to give more detail to your question to get a better diagnosis.

(1) have you charged from this USB port before?
(2) Are you using a laptop?

There are 2 basic types of USB ports. powered and non-powered.

Sometimes you have to go into your computer settings and tell the computer this USB port you want powered.

The reason I asked if you are trying to charge using a laptop is because most laptop USB ports or non-powered because It will drain the battery down too fast.

if this is the case you can look into buying a powered USB hub which you can plug into your non-powered port you should be able to then charge this way.

good luck hope this helps.

I NEED TO CHARGE MY PHONE BY THE USB ON THE COMPUTER I DONT NO HOW


I am not sure what cables would have come included with your phone, however, if there is one with a USB end on it, then :

1. Plug one end of the cable into your phone (the end that plugs into your phone).
2. Plug the other end (the end with the USB) into an available USB port on your computer.

NOTE: A USB port and cable end, usually has a picture (icon - which looks like 3 lines joining into 1 line (like a branch of a tree)).

For PC computers some USB ports can be found at the front and/or back of the computer. These ports are what USB drives are plugged into and other USB devices (like Hard Disk Drives, Cameras, etc...).

For MAC computers, USB ports can be located on the Keyboard and the back of the computer.

Once the cable is connected. The phone will either charge automatically (like an iPhone does) or your phone will have a message on it, prompting you what to do.

If the above information is too general, supply the following information and I will try to assist you further:

1. Computer Make, Model and Operating System (i.e, Dell, Desktop, Windows Vista)?
2. Phone Make and Model?
3. What type of cables came standard with the phone?

Sometimes my Iphone will not charge when i connect it to the wall charger. I just bought my iphone a couple of months ago.


If your iPhone is not charging when you plug it into a wall charger or into you computer's usb port, this is a usb connectivity issue and the connection just needs to be reset. All that needs to be done is plug the iPhone's cable into the phone but don't plug into the computer yet. Hold the phone's select button (the round button with the square) down for about 30 seconds or until the apple appears on the screen. your phone will reload and reset the connection and the computer should recognize the device. Allow the phone to charge for at least 30 minutes before unplugging.

Cannot connect to computer


FIRST OF ALL, NEVER EVER PLUG IT INTO THE COMPUTER WHILE ITS ON. ALWAYS TURN THE PHONE OFF BEFORE HAND. AS FAR AS YOUR COMPUTER NOT RECOGNIZING THE USB CABLE, IT MAY ACTUALLY BE YOUR COMPUTER. AFTER ALL IF IT WAS THE CABLE, YOUR PHONE WOULDN'T CHARGE SINCE IT IS THE SAME CABLE FOR CHARGING AND USB CONNECTIONS. MY COMPUTER HAS HAD TROUBLE SEVERAL TIMES WHEN PLUGGING IN NEW OR DIFFERENT DEVICES INTO THE PORT. TO CHECK THE USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER.... GO TO CONTROL PANEL, THEN DEVICE MANAGER. DOUBLE CLICK UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. IF ANY OF THEM ARENT WORKING PROPERLY THERE WILL BE A YELLOW TRIANGLE WITH AN EXCLAMTION POINT BESIDE THE UNFUNCTIONING USB. IF IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING YOU WILL HAVE TO UPDATE THE DRIVER. IF YOUR PORTS, DRIVERS ETC DONT SHOW THE YELLOW TRIANGLE, THEY ARE WORKING. TRY PLUGGING THE PHONE INTO A DIFFERENT PORT UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL ACCEPT IT. I HAVE A LAPTOP AND MY PHONE ISNT RECOGNIZED IN THE SAME USB PORT (ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COMPUTER) THAT I USE FOR MY PRINTER. I USE A DIFFERENT PORT FOR MY CELL PHONE. IF YOUR COMPUTER IS OLDER , THE USB PORT MAY NOT BE HIGH SPEED. OLDER COMPUTERS HAVE USB PORTS WITH A SPEED OF 1x OR A MIX OF PORTS WITH 1x AND 2.O (2.0 IS HIGHSPEED 1x IS NOT). I HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

Motorola W370 will not charge


Motorola provides a USB driver for just charging the W370. I installed it using the installation instructions from the Motorola website, but it just wouldn't work. The USB driver would install but would not activate (error Type 10). The W370 said that it could not charge. I recommend not bothering with this device driver, at least not with Windows XP.

However, I did figure out how to get the W370 charging from a USB port by trial and error. It's a pretty simple process.

1. Before plugging in the USB cable, turn on the W370 and wait for it to fully boot.
2. Connect the phone to the USB port of the computer.
3. When the phone asks "Connect phone as storage Device?", press the phone's left soft key, choosing "YES".
4. The phone will say "Please Wait...... Connecting Phone as Storage Device"
5. Eventually, the phone will display a white screen with the message, "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done."
6. Flip the phone closed. The yellow battery indicator will be lit. The phone is charging.

You'll note that the computer will see the W370 as a storage device with around 512 Megabytes of free memory, with empty "picture" and "sound" directories. The W370 appears to be a generic mass storage device to the computer. No special device driver is needed to charge the W370!
