have you tried turning off tablet with charger plugged in and letting it charge up. You should see a battery symbol come onto the screen with a pulsing level indicating the battery is being charged. hold in power till unit turns off then plug in charger cable into tablet and switch on charger at power point . Do not try and push power switch to power up tablet see if screen indicates charging is occurring. I have experienced this exact problem on a samsung tablet !
Well when the light is green that usually means it is fully charged. If the light is amber then it is charging. If you are having problems with short charged up time duration try this: Plug charger cord into Kindle then plug charger to outlet. Then press on/off button. A screen will pop up asking if you want to cancel or power down the unit. Do not choose either option, keep the button pushed down until every thing turns off. There will be no power light at all. Wait 2-3 hours unplug everything then power up the Kindle. This action will match the battery indicator icon to a truer image of the battery. I do this several times a week, usually overnight. Sorry if I over answered your question.

The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or
purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most
manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by
displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If
your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is
probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the
light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of
Battery Error Coneventions
Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to
indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will
rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level
until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your
laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red
or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it
indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.
Please remove the charger and take the battery out of the phone for one minute. Whilst the battery and charger are out press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to drain any residual power from the phone.
Replace the battery and charger and after a minute power up again.
If the issue is resolved or if it persists please do let me know.
Typically that flashing light means low battery. Which makes sense, as you probably have an issue with the AC Adapter that you plug into the computer to charge it, or the DC Jack that this adapter plugs into on the laptop. Either of these things will cause your computer to not charge the battery, and if there isn't enough power it won't turn on.
Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.
If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.
Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.
okay people... this is a long one, but I just did it for two units that were having this problem and it worked both times.
The problem is the unit sat on the shelf and doesn't have enough power to operate its charging cycle.
Take an extension cord and plug in the outlet charger while you also plug it into your cigarette lighter... now attempt to charge it (you will hear the familiar alarm). Now, turn on the LED light... after a short time, turn off the light and the unit will begin to charge regularly. You can then use one of the chargers to finish the job.
By doing this you are providing plenty of power to the battery while the light drains it at a slower rate... kinda forcing the battery to condition/cycle; it's just allowing the battery to take the charge. Hope this helps.
I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!
