Why wont my eeepc charge ???


There could be three very good reasons I can think of immediately.

1) Check your power adapter to be sure it is working properly. You may want to find someone with a voltage meter to do this.

2) Check the power adapter plug on the laptop. These plugs are bad about becoming loose over time. When we use our laptops we tend to move them around especially if we are holding them in our laps. This causes the adapter plug to be pulled back and forth which can actually break it from the motherboard inside the laptop. No connection...no charge.

3) Be sure your battery is still good. Batteries can go bad like anything else and many times are the reason the PC won't charge.

My sansa mp3 has frozen nothing moves,it is on , how can i dislock it


Hi,the Sansa is a portable media player made by SanDisk. As with all portable media players, there may come a time when your Sansa freezes up for one reason or another. This can be incredibly frustrating. Fortunately, there are a handful of different methods you can use to unfreeze the player.

Instructions

Wait for the battery in the Sansa to die completely. Once the battery is dead, you can plug the Sansa into your computer and download a firmware update for your particular model (see Resources below). You can also remove the battery from the Sansa if you want to speed up the process.


Plug the Sansa back into your computer. If the computer recognizes the device, the player should begin charging right away. This will unfreeze your Sansa.


Hold the power button down for roughly 10-20 seconds. The Sansa should turn off. Wait a few seconds and then turn the player back on.


Hold down the center button and the menu button at the same time. Do this for up to 30 seconds while watching the display screen.


Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya.

When i plug in the charger the led light stays on green but on the joystick the lights are moving back and forth as if it is charging but wheelchair does not move


Joy When you plug in the charger the lights on the joystick will scroll because of something called charger inhibit which disables the joystick when charging It is a safety feature. Now when you disconnect the charger turn off the chair and then turn it back on you should then get all the battery lights indicating the charge level If fully charged all the lights will be lit. If after you unplug the charger and you still get the scrolling lights then you have a problem with the charger inhibit function in the joystick and it will have to be replaced. Hope this helps you

Charging


USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Try a USB plug o the back of the computer. These plugs have more power available.
Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. Check you screensaver and power settings.
USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware.
AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port. These accessories are available on our online store.
Next try and reset the player. Resetting the player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
Once it is back working, go to the SanDisk support site and get the updater program and update your firmware.

Sansa express won't turn on


Normal 0 Press and hold the Volume Up (+) and Select buttons at the same time for about 20 seconds
Make sure that the player is charged up.

Try to power reset the device by pressing and holding the center and volume up button at the same time, while connecting it to the PC.

If power reset fails, charge the device for at least two and a half hours. The computer should not be in sleep or hibernation state while charging.

You may need to update firmware.

Audiophase KZ111 MP3 players won't charge


One thing that I have found that works is that you slide the switch to the "ON" position, but don't press play to turn it on all the way. Do this BEFORE plugging it into your computer. I have had the mp3 player fro a year or two and I have charged it about 15-20 times.
