3 logical possibilities comes to mind: 1) Battery is faulty. 2) Charger is bad, not connected to an active wall outlet or not making good connection with the tablet. 3) There is a software issue, possibly with the application that shows the battery status.

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

Won't charge


The 4100 is a camera, not a battery charger. Connecting the camera to a computer's USB port is only going to drain the batteries faster, since the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

If you're using an EN-MH1 rechargeable battery pack, you must charge it using a separate MH-71 battery charger. If you're using rechargeable AA batteries, you must charge them using an appropriate battery charger.

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Battery won't stay charged


Bring the power cord/charger to a pc shop and have them test it. It might need to be replaced. Otherwise you need to replace the battery.

Battery won't charge


connect the charger to the socket, then connect the charger to your laptop. if it does not charge remove it for 5mins, connect the charger back. it will work now. sometimes when the battery is fully charged and you remove the charger and connect it back it may not charge until the battery is low;lets say 99%.

Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced. Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

The phone won't take a charge. The red light comes on indicating that it is charging but it doesn't. What's the deal?


Try this.. as it works for me on my GzOne Rock..

Connect to the charger just long enough for the screen to power on, then immediately disconnect the charger before it goes into charging mode. . -- It should power up and be ready for use.in a couple seconds.

I have found that only when the battery gets completely drained, that the Gzone Rock often will not power back up on it's own, even though the battery has been successfully recharged.
By connecting the to the charger it will initiate the boot-up of the phone - but you must remove it before it displays the charging screen again, otherwise it still won't come on and boot.

I don't know why, but this method works for my GzOne Rock every time.

I have a question concerning the tomtom 910. When plugged into the car, the tomtom goes off and on and the battery is constantly low. However,when I charge it at home, it stays on for about 4 hours. What...


Connect your TomTom to the car charger and turn it on. Tap the lower right hand cornor where the sat. signal graph is. On the screen that comes up check to see if it is chargeing while connected to the car charger. It should say charging in the upper right hand cornor where it shows the battery status. If it isn't charging then you have either a bad pin on your windsheild mount or your charger is not working. If the charger is not working it may be as simple as replacing the fuse in the charger.
