Question about Sony CLIE PEG-S360 Handheld

1 Answer

Possible dead battery, but I'd like to be sure

My Clie won't turn on, even when I plug it into the wall. Before I order a new battery for it, I'd like to be sure that the battery really is the problem. It seems a bit scary that it won't turn on even when it is plugged in, and I wonder if maybe that's an indication that it is more than a battery problem. Does anyone know if this sounds symptomatic of a dead battery or of something else?

    That didn't seem to help, but I sure appreciate the suggestion! Any other thoughts?

    I have the same problem. Mine is an older clie and the green light on the bottom won't come on like it normally does when you try to turn it on.

    I have exactly the same probelm.

    My Clie won't turn on, even when I plug it into the wall.

    Is there a primary battery in here in addition to the rechargeable battery that is supposed to maintain functionality when the rechargeable voltage drops below some threshold?

    Almost the same problem here. When I first got it, it would only turn on for a few seconds before automatically turning off. I figured the battery wasn't charged, so I charged it for a day or so. Then it seemed to work ok, so I put it away until Christmas (it was a Christmas present for myself, and I wanted to wait until Christmas before I actually used it. This was in early December).

    Then when I took it out on Christmas, it simply wouldn't work at all, just like everyone else is describing here. Absolutely nothing no matter what I do.

This may sound silly, but make sure you didn't accidently spin the little wheel on the side thus, turning the screen down so low that it can no longer be seen.

I've had several co-workers do this and coming running to me to say they broke it... silly, but common.

Asus wont turn on

For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

Display will not come on plugged in or not

The UPS needs to have a good DC Buss for it to work. Before you buy the new battery disconnect the battery & unplug it from the wall. Push the on button to reset the logic. You may see the display flash breifly. Install the new battery. Then plug in the UPS and turn it on and enjoy

My laptop shut off and will not come back on, any ideas? its a new battery, just 2 weeks old.

remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter only directly to a working wall outlet. If it still does not turn on, you likely have a failed system board. take it to a local repair place or call Dell for service.

Problem with Sony Clie - NX70V/E - battery

i just replaced the battery on my NX60. It was a very easy task. Look on the net for batteries. I found a battery for $18 plus S/H. It came with the special plastic screw driver and instructions. I just threw everything away or I would give you the company name. I found several. The instructions are easy. Simply remove the screw ofr the barrtey compartment and all the scrws holding on the back. Remove the back, carefully remove the battery, carefully replace the battery making sure you place the wires in the correct position. Replace the back and screw the thing together. You can also order a battery from Batteries Plus. The original battery in my machine was 1000 ma the newer batteries are 1200 ma. Good luck.

Sony Clie sj33 battery

If you haven't already done so. Try resetting PDA in back, if that doesn't work go back to battery and verify connections are correct and check connection wires (they may be frayed or damaged). I'm not sure that will solve the problem, but it worths a shot.
