    Thanks to Solasknows,

    I followed your advice and its fine!!! Cant believe something so simple sorted it after all the cost and time wasted.
    Now I have another problem: Reception is not very good unless Im next to a door or window,and moving around is not adviasble either. How does an internal antenna work and is it worthwhile dong this to the phone?

Most likely your battery is broken. If you know how to use a multimeter you can measure the battery, if it has more than 3.7 V and you still have no runtime you have a broken logic board, if the battery never reaches 3.7V regardless of how long you charge, your battery is bad. If it's your logic board and you're comfortable w/ disassembling stuff or have a tech savy friend you can use a blackberry repair guide that will show you how to disassemble it step by step, or you can go to the repair service.

My tablet wont turn on unless connected to a power supply and when its connected the screen stays black

I'd check the tablets internal battery and also the cord and plug from the charger. Though the cord powers it enough to run the connection may be too insufficient to -keep- the battery charging. I would also turn the device completely off while troubleshooting.

It wont turn on unless its plugged up to the charger. i even charged it for 2days

It sounds like your rechargeable battery is dead, I would take the camera with the charger to a camera store have them quickly check the battery with a meter before you commit to buy a new one, this way there is no guess work and you are not wasting money.

Yamaha rx-v461 not working

you have a faulty circuit somewhere, whether its in speaker wiring, or power source, i dont know, but your reciever has an automatic circuit breaker in it for protection, and a faulty circuit will trip it, i would assume it is a power source problem since it wont turn back on, check wiring, plugs and look around, and smell for burnt, or hot components.

the lightning bolt indicates that the battery is being charged. I will stay on as long as it is being charged either in the cradle, or using an external charger. If it stays on after it is removed from any external power source, there is a problem with the unit and it needs serviced.
