Well does it have an AC inlet to charge it? If so use it rathyer than DC car charger to revive a depleted battery. It will take an hour or so to get up enough power to turn it on and a few more hours to get a decent charge into it. Life of battery in unused state is around 3-4 days depending on condition of the battery. Total depletion will take some time to get the battery to recover siufficiuently to get basic operation to occur. Be patient and if this fails to fix it try replacing the battery altogether

Gateway zx4931 wont power on

1.) check the wall outlet and make sure there is power going to the receptacle. It is possible to have one of the two outlets on a single duplex receptacle go bad. If you don't have a volt meter to test the outlets, plug in a table lamp or some other electrical appliance into each one of the outlets to check for power. On rare occasions, I have been to homes and businesses where the outlet is controlled by a wall switch- if this is the case, make sure it is turned "on".
2.) If you are using a power strip or surge protector power strip, make sure it is tuned on and that it is getting power to it. You may have tripped the internal breaker in the strip if it is so equipped.
3.) The same way you checked the wall outlet in step #1, do the same with the power strip; it is possible that one of the receptacles to that strip has gone bad.
4.) Check the power cord that runs from the outlet into the back of the computers power supply; it may be loose or has become disconnected.
5.) The end of the power cord that connects to the computer has a power supply built into it. Some of these power supplies have a built in "on-off" rocker style switch; make sure it is turned to the "on" position.
6.) On the back of the same power supply there is also a slide type selector switch for either 120 volt ac power or 220 volt ac power; make sure the selector is on the 120 volt ac scale.
Beyond these basic troubleshooting procedures, going to the next level requires more technical skills which I will be more than happy to offer if you are up to the task and have the appropriate diagnostic tools.
Other problems like a bad (internal to the computer's) power supply could have gone bad; perhaps a defective power "on" switch; defective main board; or internal loose connections.
If you are not tech savvy and don't wish to get deeply involved in troubleshooting & repairing the problem, bring your Gateway to an authorized repair station- since their parts are proprietary.
You may even have to contact them first to get warranty repair services, unless of course the warranty has expired.

Charges at home on a usb port but not in the car

Hi Carl,

You should check your car's fuses to see if the one that supplies power to your USB charger is still good. If you're not sure how to do this, you could try plugging a different device into it and see if it works. If it doesn't - you'll need to inspect the fuse or wiring. (you could also try the charger in a different port or different car to see if the issue is tied to the charger).

If the other device does work, it is possible that the charger has a built in fuse. If the charger is the type that plugs into your cigar lighter, you may find the the tip holds the fuse. The tip may reveal the fuse if unscrewed from the body or may require a screw driver to open the body. Either way, you'll need to ascertain if there is a fuse in it and if so, check its condition.

Sometimes, the charger needs to be aligned a certain way in the cigar lighter / power port (or outlet) due to the way some automakers and device manufacturers design the connections. Repeatedly remove and replace the plug in the lighter / port. Each time, turn the the plug slightly so that it takes 6 to 8 insertions to rotate all the way around in the outlet. This should provide at least one position that allows the plug to make the required contact in the lighter / power port.

Lastly, make sure that there is no foreign object / debris in the outlet, that the the plug fits snugly in the outlet, the the plug's tip has a spring pushing it forward and that the plug is fully inserted into the outlet.

Hopefully, one of these suggestions will get it working. Good luck!

I have a power outlet How can i make it into a lighter?

Short answer - don't.

Longer answer - even if you can buy a lighter from an auto parts store and make it work in a power outlet, you'll melt your dash.

Power outlets are designed to deliver power, but not to take the heat of a lighter. Lighter outlets are wrapped in multiple layers of metal and thermal insulation so they can safely hold a hot lighter, and none of that is present on a power outlet.

Cigarette front lighter is not working in my 2001Saab

Check ALL the fuses. pull them out an dlook. Also repace the one that is power for the dash/rradio/etc... even if it looks good.
If that doe snot fix it then pull the lighter out and test the wire going to it for power. If it has power then you might have a bad plug/ground. Replace outlet if so.

This is simple the memory wire (yellow) is connect incorrectly. It needs 12 volt constant or continously. meaning 12 volts even when the car is off.
