You can charge it via a USB lead also from the computer

My tablet was in use, needed charging, it shut off. Now it won't charge or come on


It sounds like there's a problem with the charger. The wire on the charger is rather delicate. So is the port on your tablet where the wire plugs in. There may be a break inside the wire. If you dropped your tablet while the wire was plugged in and it hit the floor on the charger plug, the charger plug could have damaged the charging port in the tablet or the wire itself could be damaged.
Find someone else who has the same tablet and ask to switch chargers to see if either of them still work on the other tablet. If your friend's charger starts charging your tablet without a problem, then the problem is a a broken wire in your charger. If neither charger will charge your tablet but both chargers charge your friends tablet without a problem, then the problem is with the charging port on your tablet.

I have the Trio 7" Dual core tablet. The battery is not charging completely, can this battery be replaced and if so where do I find the battery in the unit?


Battery replacement is possible. The battery is a flat component encased in a shiny silvery sheath behind the speaker area inside the back cover. It's mounted with double-sided (very) sticky-tape. A replacemnent battery should be sourced, having the same power specifications as well as physical dimensions. (see detailed close-up photo attached.) Replacement involves desoldering the 2 terminal wires (1 red and 1 black) which attach it to the main board, and replacing the battery with a new(er) unit.
The above having been said,I'd only replace the tablet battery if I was sure that it's the battery at fault. Here's what I'd suggest.
First, check that you're using a charger with the proper 5 Volt / 2Amp (2000milliamp) output. Also I'd suggest you use a charger designed to be plugged intothe G2 7" Dual-Core tablet's dedicated charging port. (See sample tablet charger in attached photo) The G2 tablets WILL typically accept charging output via the micro USB port, for example, from a typical cell phone charger. However typical phone chargers which will happily attach to the Trio or other similar tablets, via the micro-USB port do NOT often have the same output power specifications. This I think may cause difficulty with the tablet battery not reaching the fully-charged status. Also, the use of the USB port for charging may cause access problems if the battery power is low during some operations (eg data transfer in slave mode), as the charging port can not multitask as the USB port can. If power to the main boad is lost during such operations the tablet may become "bricked". Bottom line for me would be to use the dedicated appropriately rated charger whenever possible: it's the reccommended charging method.

Setting on charger for a Polaroid tablet, 6V, 12V, Help


Not sure of the model number of your polaroid tablet you have. Generally the adapter should be an AC adapter for 220V or 110V depending on country. It is unlikely you will have to select 6v or 12v. If you are unsure charge the tablet through the USB cable connected to a computer. It might take a bit longer to charge and make sure the computer is connected to mains charger to avoid drain on computer (laptop, etc) battery.

If you have a 7" tablet then I am assuming it is a PMID705. See manual on this link.
http://www.southerntelecom.com/upload/polaroid/pmid705/PMID705_User_Manual_20121210.pdf

The manual says it is a 5v DC output connector for the adapter. Not sure why you are asking the question. If in doubt send email to polaroid support on the address at end of the attached manual.

Why will my Kindle Fire not charge


This could be any number of issues; are you charging this on a car charger or wall charger? Have you checked to make sure your charge port isn't damaged? Does it connect correctly via USB to a computer? Have you tried the charger on different outlets? Has the Kindle Fire been dropped or damaged in anyway?

I have a polariod ptab8000 and it won't mount my new 8gb micro external card, whatdo i need to do


Check the microsd card in another machine first - it may be the card that is snafu.

Or if you have another card try that and if it doesnt work either you know the sdcard slot is damaged - the pins are easily broken or the small spring inside sometimes pings loose.
