    Run the following diagnostic test & let me know if it works properly.



    1. Shut down the computer

    2. Unplug the power cord from the laptop.

    3. Remove the battery.

    4. If the battery has a charge indicator, push the button & note the level in your message.

    5. Hold the power button for 30 seconds.

    6. Re install the battery after the laptop has 45 seconds of time to sit untouched.

    7. Plug in the charger.

    8. Boot & check charging function
    NOTE: This test can fix the problem if you had bad data in static ram.

If it will not work on AC Adapter without battery in it, then you have a bad AC Adapter and the battery is fine. You don't have to get an expensive AC adapter from the original manufacturer. Just look on the bottom of the AC adapter and write down the Volts and Wattage. You can get another at a place like Lowe's or Home Depot. But you must make sure that the Voltage matches exactly, to much voltage and it will fry your computer, to little voltage and it will not run your computer.

My device will not come on


Things to check:

1. Make sure that your car receptacle has +12VDC. Try another device to confirm.
2. Make sure that the car charger is working properly. Most have a fuse in the tip. It could be blown. It may not be converting +12VDC to +5VDC which is required to power the GPS. Try another charger with the GPS.
3. Common problem with the 25xx series are loose/broken USB charger ports. This will prevent the unit from powering up with an external power source and will prevent the battery from being charged. Eventually the battery will lose its charge and since the USB charging port is loose, the battery will not charge and the unit will appear dead. More info here:

When I put the battery on the charger the light on the charger stays on for little awhile the it starts to blink, but when I try to use the battery it is not charged. So I am not sure if I need a new


Hi there! It sounds like you have our Linx stick vacuum or hand vacuum model. Plug only the charger into an outlet, the blue light on the charger should flash once. If the light on the charger flashes once then the charger is fine. Try resetting the battery by following these quick steps below.

1. Remove the battery from charger or cleaner
2. Unplug the charger
3. Insert the battery into the vacuum and turn the unit on for 30 seconds (even if it has no power)
4. Remove the battery
5. Plug the charger into an outlet, make sure the light on charger blinks blue once.
6. Insert battery into charger

The light should be a solid blue, indicating the battery reset worked. If so, allow the battery to charge for 3-4 hours, completely deplete battery on your next use and re-charge. If the light on the charger is still blinking, your battery will need to be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement battery if needed. Hope this helps!

Telecom r100 battery


It could be one of these three things.
1. Bad port. Often in laptops these ports become loose.
2. Bad battery.
3. Bad charger.

Borrowing either a universal power charger, or the charger from someone with a similar laptop, can eliminate some of the possibilities unless it is indeed your charging port.

If after plugging it in, the battery charges you know you had a bad charger. If the battery fails to charge, you know its time for a new battery. Again this only if the port itself is not bad.

Universal chargers can be expensive. You can find batteries and chargers on Ebay for a decent price.

My e900 wont turn on or charge


most likely your charger port is damaged, if you try another charger and get the same thing- then I am sorry but the phone is finished. warranty does not cover damaged ports, but if you have the insurance it is covered under damage, if its lless than a 30 day old problem. If you replace it with the same phone, discard any chargers you used on the old one.

Havoc heli will not charge


As far as the green light on the charger not coming on: after I tested the batteries in the remote, I found that it was due to 2 of the 6 batteries in the remote control being dead (0.1volts) The charger probably sucks the power out of the #1 and #6 battery.

Make sure all batteries in the Remote have the same charge.

Also, there seems to be a loose contact in the charger plug prongs. You will have to find a way to sit the helicopter so that it stays in contact with the prongs while charging. Mine has to be on it's side to keep the green charger light on.

Good luck!
