Won't Turn On Unless Plugged In

I just got this laptop yesterday and unless I plug it into the charger, it won't turn on. I charged it last night, hoping it can run w/o the charger, but the same thing happens. Does anybody know the solution?

What is the make/model of the laptop? It looks like the battery is not holding a charge. Have you tried to remove the battery and put the battery back in?

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger

Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

It is charging by USB port using ac adapter, can also charge by computer USB port during picture uploads and downloads. Do you need an instruction manual.

Battery is fully charged, but netbook won't turn on unless plugged in.

I would say that you definitely need to purchase a new netbook battery. If it's only turning on when plugged in, then the battery itself doesn't have any more charge cycles.
