Sounds like it may be frozen.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then try turning it on.

If that doesnt work, remove the 4 screws on the back and take out the battery. Leave it out for a minute or two, then put it back in place and try powering it on.

Best of Luck.

My computer says it is charging but as soon as i hit the power button it stops charging and does nothing even happens

Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

Lens is stuck about 97% open. The camera will not power on. The problem happened suddenly with no warning.

Is the battery charged?
If the battery is 100% ok, did you try to connect the camera to power outlet directly or to computer via USB cable and then try turn it on?
Hold the power button for 20-30 seconds. If nothing happens the logic board could be dead, you shoudl have check it by service.

HTC Hero(w/ google, not refurbished) is not charging. If I plug it in, it holds the battery level at whatever level that battery is, and every time i unplug it the battery just gets lower, and never...

If you are plugging it into the usb port of a computer then you may not be getting quite enough power, try plugging it into the wall via the wall charger and see what happens. If nothing happens I suggest taking it into the store you bout it from and letting them see the problem, a lot of them have policies for fixing this sort of situation.

Toshiba laptop power light is on but nothing is working

When you turn the computer ON, can you hear something running on the laptop? If yes, have you tried taking out the battery & just turn the computer ON with the ac charger plugged-in? If you tried to turn ON the computer with the fully charged battery with the above troubleshooting but still there's no display on the screen, then I think there's something wrong with your hardware (maybe the LCD or the motherboard). You could also try using an external monitor to test if it's your LCD that's defective, if not it's your systemboard. Try calling their tech support hotline.

Hope this helps.

Sony Ericsson K770i Phone won't turn on red light apears on the top left, any suggestions?

This has happened to me twice - the first instance occurred when I'd only had the phone a few days and the second occurred today after months of trouble-free use.

On both occasions the phone wouldn't charge via the mains charger - it wouldn't switch on even when plugged in and neither the battery or the charger were warm to the touch after hours of charging, indicating that nothing was happening.

The solution for me was to connect the phone to my PC via the USB cable - nothing happened at first, the PC didn't recognise the phone and it remained lifeless. However, I left it attached to my PC and after 10-15 minutes it suddenly whirred into life.

The battery was COMPLETELY flat despite my attempts at mains charging, so I let it charge via USB for a while then transferred it to the mains charger. This time the mains charger worked.

I've no idea why, but this has worked for me twice so give it a try.
