Batteries for rca cambio w101 v2


The tablet has a built-in rechargeable battery. The unit comes with an AC adapter (DC IN 5V) to recharge it via an electrical outlet in your home, or you my use a Micro-USB cable plugged into the port and plug the other end into the USB port on your PC/Mac.

If you're having issues with the battery, such that it may not have been used in a long and entered discharge mode. Connect the AC Adapter for several minutes to get it up to at least 5% before attempting to power on.

Even though the battery is a built-in rechargeable, it can be replaced if necessary, and fairly easily IF you take your time 10-15 minutes and have basic skills. A replacement battery for this unit sells for about $10 on ebay.

My Acer aspire one just stopped working for no reason. I plugged it in to charge it but none of the lights come on, and nothing happens when I hit the power button...


Assuming that the AC/DC Power Adapter is not faulty no LED lighting up at all and no image at all on the screen might mean a power management fault on the motherboard.
First try removing the battery underneath the netbook. Then connect the netbook to the power cable without the battery installed. If the netbook powers up without a battery installed then the battery is probably faulty most likely with completely depleted and unchargeable power cells. if so you will almost certainly need a new battery and some little known guidance on the correct management of a netbook or notebook battery (see below). Dead batteries tend to generate a more than normal amount of heat.
If the AC/DC adapter is not faulty and using the netbook without a battery does not help then check the DC power jack where the power cable connects to the netbook to see if the jack is loose or detached from its original solder point on the motherboard.
If the none of the above are the cause of the problem then the motherboard probably has a power track or capacitor fault which might be repairable (as would a loose DC jack) but these types of fault even if successfully repaired can easily come back and the cost of repair might be high compared to the value of the netbook and not worth it since a brand new state of the art netbook with a full warranty would not be very expensive.
Many users take an incorrect approach to netbook/notebook/laptop battery management. These batteries are rechargeable and are only supposed to be connected to the power cable when their cells are low or depleted. Once the cells are fully charged the power cable should either be disconnected and the computer used on battery power alone or the battery should be removed and kept for when battery powered use of the computer is next needed.
Once a fully charged battery is removed the computer can be used directly connected to the electricity without the battery installed.
A disconnected battery needs to be reinstalled and recharged from time to time if it is stored for long periods of time, because the charge in its power cells very slowly dissipates even if is disconnected from the computer.

Our dell inspirion 1525 keeps switching itself off when it is plugged into the mains electric. Also the battery does not hold it's charge. What could be the cause ? Thanks


Hi,
Without looking at it I'd guess at it being the DC power jack (where you plug in the power adaptor). These are prone to wear and tear and are easily damaged. When your laptop is plugged in and is turned on, please 'wiggle' the power jack and see if your machine powers down and/or the charging light comes on. If any of the above happens, then it's your DC jack. These can be replaced.

Laptop won't charge


You might need a new battery....you could try removing the battery, plug laptop into ac and restarting. Or you might need a new DC power jack. If you wiggle the cord where it plugs into the laptop, and it starts to charge normally, then the DC power jack needs replacing. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-sony-vaio-vgn-s360p-replace-broken-power-jack/

My laptop won't turn on even though it's plugged into the recharg


Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.

If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone.

Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.

Laptop will not charge but charger light is on


Sounds like a bad battery or the charger isn't putting out enough power even though the light is on.But most likely its the battery.

Stopped Turning on.


The extra 4 volts of electricity may have fried the electronic parts inside the external drive's case. In other words, your hard drive may be ok even though the little circuit board that matches the external hard drive to your pc's USB outlet is ruined.
A computer shop can remove the hard drive from the external case and test that drive to see if it's still working. That's the best case senario. My best guess is that you cooked the electronics in the external case AND the hard drive. So sorry.
