Question about Computers & Internet
Hi Ive had the zeepad 7.0 android tablet for around a month and a half now, At first I had no issues with the tablet. Yesterday it started acting up and not wanting to charge at all, even on the charger. Ive tried a couple different chargers on it and none of them did any better. Even when the charger is plugged in it stays at 0%. Sometimes the battery says 2 or 3% then suddenly it will say 100% but only for a few seconds before it goes back to 2%. I was hoping maybe you had some advice for me if I need to send it back to amazon (I ordered it from amazon.com by the way) Would they send me a replacement or would I just be out of luck? Thanks in advance for any help. I just didn't know what else to do.

1. It can be a screw loose inside the unit shorting something out.
2. The AC Port is damaged and needs to be re soldered.
3. Bad motherboard.
I've seen this be a bad motherboard more than not, however it has been the other 2 options from time to time. Most likely need to take it apart and you can see if it's the first 2 and if not than your board is bad.

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

It is a sign that your battery is failing. Try to remove the battery then put it back. After that, try to check if you still experience the same thing. If so, then you need a new battery replacement.
Batteries usually start to degrade after a year or after 500 charges, whichever comes first.

Dear alfred I have found lots of problems like yours over the web.
Your problem is one of many that the best solution to them might be to buy a diffrent kind of laptop with a diffrent charger.
I have seen a lot problems where pepole had to buy a new charger (10$ at amazon) or a new battery (70$ or more) so you should consider replacing becuase it may be cheaper.
There are lots possibilities who might cause this problem,here are two:
1) Your laptop battery has stopped taking a charge, because of a chemical breakdown of the electrodes from the electrolyte. With any battery (to date) you can only reverse the chemical reaction, needed to generate current flow, a limited number of times before the internal components of the battery break down. So it may just be that your battery is no longer able to charge in the first place.
2) A common occurrence with barrel type connections is that they tend to become loose over time due to the cable being jostled around as it's resting in the connected state. If metal to metal contact is not occurring on either the outer barrel or inner pin of the connection, the electromagnetic polarity required to move the electrons (i.e. current flow) will be nonexistent, causing the device to not charge the battery or supply electricity to the internal circuitry. In this case you could find any electronics technician to simply replace the power connector for you, considering they have simple soldering knowledge and you can find a power connector to replace it with through your laptops motherboard manufacturer.
There are lots of possibilities for your problem,I also advise you to try another charger to check if the problem is at the laptop or the charger.
