Sounds like the problem could be the battery itself...since you already confirmed that it works with the power adapter....if your under warranty it would be a good time to call the warranty department

Why wont my nookhd wont charge


If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.



General charging recommendations.



If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.



Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.



If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.



One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.



You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.

My battery isnt charging even though it says it is.


Try a different cable and a different charger if you have them. Also try just connecting it to a PC's USB port. Of course, the PC has to be turned on. Even though it will say that it isn't charging, it will charge very slowly this way as long as you're not using the Galaxy Note the whole time. So try that over night.

If none of those work, then you may have a bad battery in your Galaxy Note. How old is it? If it is still under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired for free.

AC adapter/charger is attached, but the battery will not charge. it doesnt even show that the battery is there


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Sorry about this.
Have you tried charging your tab to full capacity first. You need to plug it into ac mains and leave for a few minutes to allow the battery get some charge on/in it.

Secondly, I am persuaded your tablet PC is windows OS (I stand to be corrected on this please).

Was the system board confirmed fully configured/operational with all drivers installed?

Aside of drained battery in need of charge or boost; suspected fault may have to do with getting your tab PC to initialize boot sequence.

Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.


In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.
