Battery is probably dead. If it's to far gone, the tablet will not charge or work.

Also, try taking the OEM charger/chord (not some ebay or cheapo gas station charger) and plug it in overnight. It may suprise you and start to charge.

SOURCE: battery fails to charge completely

It sounds to me as if your battery is faulty. No way should it take 17 hours to charge. The battery is abviously not absorbing the charge and this could be because one or more cells are defunct. You can just wait until it fails completely or look at getting a replacement before this happens.

SOURCE: My Gateway m275 tablet will not charge or power up even with it plugged in

At least a 50% chance the power pin inside the computer has been damaged. Taking apart a laptop and getting it back together correctly is a tough job . . . .The part (the power pin) is not that expensive ($ 5-10) but the labor is expensive. If you don;t feel up to the task, have it fixed by a professional and after it''s fixed get a CRD (Cable Retention Device) to keep from damaging the pin a second time.

SOURCE: Wont charge or keep a charge

First off, a google search will show you several companies out there that will replace the cells in your existing battery for around $70. Not bad. However, you mentioned that positioning of the plug can get it to work. The solder joints can become broken from the board, and the small plug in jack will get loose after a year or two of plugging in to it.
You can get a replacement plug at fry's electronics, or many online stores. If you need a service manual, or driver disk set, you can get them at mpcdrivers.com

My 7inch tagital tablet shut off and wont turn on I try charge but it still not coming up.its not even a month since I have it


what usually cause the problem of most tagital tablet not turning on
is when the battery is over charged.the maximum time to charge a battery is six hours when bought new.if you dont it will pose some difficulties later.
there are three options
1. get another battery
2. get a booster to boost the battery
3.you also use LED by pinning its cable to the battery,this will take some time.then wait until the light on the LED goes off.it normally takes 3 days before the LED light turns off.
if you have taken these steps the next thing to do is to put the battery back on your tablet and connect it to a power source i mean electric current and see if it will respond to charging.if it works, then you got your tablet back,but if not please get a new battery.thanks

Why did my RCA 10 inch tablet power down and now will not turn back on? It does not show any sign of charging - no battery symbol, no lights, nothing.


battery have residual power which last few minutes to allow safely switch off, as you used this power, it shut down. this residual reserve is usually between 3% to 5% of capacity.

and do not fiddle with it till you recharge it, reset will not work while there is no power, any other "trickery" will not work either.

now, plug battery to known good charger and charge it for 24hrs, do not switch it on during that time nor disconnect from the charger.

after this it should be starting and working normally, if it does not - it is still under warranty and you should return it to the place of purchase for repair or replacement, even if you do not have receipt. tablet have it's serial number and can be traced in the store to day, and even hour and minute when it was sold...

hope this short info will help you - do not forget to vote...

My sons versus tablet will not come on ... it looks like its charging as the screen is showing this, but he's unable to get anything else working


If the battery had completely died, it takes awhile for it to come back to life as it charges. If you are using the supplied power adapter, it may only be doing a trickle charge on the battery and so when you try to Energize the Tablet PC, IT BURNS MORE JUICE (ELECTRICITY) THAN WHAT'S BEING SUPPLIED AND THEREFORE WILL NOT COME ON. Be sure that both charger & micro USB connections are Secure and then walk away from it. Maybe get a cup of coffee or something while a charge builds up in the battery. And even then, if you use the Table PC, it may still burn more Energy than what it has received and shutoff, again.

Using my personal experience, I bought a $20 charger from a gas station in Dandridge, TN and that thing put a powerful charge on my cell phone and also my Table PC and they stayed charged for quite some time. Unfortunately, it got left behind - plugged into a hospital bed where it probably remains to this day! I'll have to build a new one or let go a $20 bill and buy another one. That charger that came with the Tablet PC is garbage and now you can see why! Be sure not to overcharge your battery as that can be detrimental to it longevity.

    My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp


    You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

    Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

    Gateway M1300 tablet pc will not charge in the


    Question 1: Will the tablet operate on the docking station (or power cord) without the battery in place?

    If not, the power circuit on the tablet motherboard is broken.

    Question 2: If you plug in the power cord into the tablet, is the connection "loose"?
    Check the other tablet to see if it is the same loosness at the tablet power connector.

    If it is loose, the power receptical in the tablet can be soldered back onto the motherboard.

    Recommend taking it into a shop to re-solder.
    If under warranty, get it repaired.
    If not under warranty, your choice if you want to use it they way it is.

    Hope this helps...
