K-Jam died overnight - one minute working, next not.
My I-Mate K-Jam has stopped working, whether with a battery or when plugged into an AC outlet with the charger. One minute it was working fine, the next not at all. I have tried both the soft and hard reset instructions and this didn't help. It is only 6 months old. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Re: K-Jam died overnight - one minute working, next not.
This is most probably a internal power converter failure or a processor failure. Both of them will require a repair in a service center. It could be a simpler thing than that, but once again you will need a profesional diagnostic to be made. I'm sorry but these aren't the DIY type of problems. If the device is in guarantee send it back to have it checked by them. There are chances that this would be an expensive repair, so if you still have it in guarantee don't hesitate to do the repairs at an authorised service.
Also sorry for my bad english, I'm not from an english speaking country.

Step by step troubleshooting.
Verify power outlet is good
Verify power adapter is good
verify connection to computer is good
fully charge battery
Check power source, plug known good light into AC receptical.
If AC cord has connector to power block verify it is properly seated.
plug adapter into AC outlet
Verify Power is present at power connector with another similar computer or voltmeter. (12V to 20V)
When plugged into computer, charge (not power) indicator MUST light either red, amber, or green. If not, connector on computer may be broken.
leave overnight or until charge light is green
turn on normally.
most likely causes:
- loose connector
- broken wire from power adapter
- broken power plug on computer.
- anything else is probably beyond ur capabilities to fix.
Please switch off the laptop and remove the battery. wait for 10 minutes and clean the battery and keep it in laptop. Connect the laptop to AC power.
Try to check whether the battery is detected in the BIOS setup.
If the BIOS is not detected then please exchange with the new battery from vender.
Most power issues with the Wii can be fixed by resetting the AC adapter. You can easily reset the AC adapter by following these steps:
Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports.
While you're waiting, check the AC Adapter for the following: Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter.
Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then it appears resetting the AC Adapter worked.
If resetting the AC Adapter did not fix your power issues: Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Check any accessories that connect to the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports or the USB ports of the Wii -- whether licensed or not -- for physical damage. Make sure the Wii has good ventilation. Avoid operating the Wii while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space. If you have the Wii placed in a vertical position, make sure the vent on the bottom is lined up properly with the hole in the plastic stand and no foreign material is obstructing that hole. Check the vents on the back and side of the Wii for dust build up. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Wii (the port is labeled 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet (not a power strip or surge protector). Once plugged in, check the power light on the Power button to see if the system is receiving power. If the power is still continually shutting off regularly, contact Wii support.
Try a different power outlet
check whether battery is completely drained out
check for a battery meter behind the battery which can indicate whether the battery is completely drained off or not
check whether the system ppowers up with the AC adaptor connected
check whether there is any lights lit on the system indicating some activity is happening
Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.
Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.
Hi, First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself. Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.
If the blinking light on a Dell is yellow or amber or orange (somewhere in that color range) and continues to blink the entire time it is plugged into AC power (wall outlet) and when you unplug it from the wall the laptop immediately dies .... then you battery is dead and needs replaced.
If the blinking light stops after a while (perhaps a minute?) and then turns green while plugged into AC power, then it is successfully charging - or so it thinks.
When you unplug it from the wall, does it stay up and running? If it runs, it's OK - just ignore the light and plan on getting a new battery one day, start browsing now. :) If it dies immediately upon unplugging, then your battery is dead and needs replaced.
