Question about Computers & Internet
Trying to charge mp3 player and get power surge on hub port. I can reset it by clicking on the icon but as soon as I plug it back in, I get same warning. Any suggestions?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Sounds like a hardware problem, most likely a partial short or conductive dirt or corrosion of the USB connector of the MP3 player. Since there are only 4 terminals, 1 side is for the ground, the opposite for +5VDC and the two at the middle are for data, it would be possible to check for continuity using a DVM or VOM and determine if the +5 terminal is shorted to the GND. Alternately, you can try to clean and scrape the pins.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
