My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp

You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

Kindle fire has red battery showing. I have charged it but it wont work

It may be the power cord but it is possible that your Kindle Fire's battery has died. If you noticed the battery life diminishing before it started flashing a red battery symbol this may be the case. Here is a site that has replacement batteries for the Kindle Fire:

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds

Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button


6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

HP 2710P will not power on!

Try power draining your computer first. remove battery and ac adapter, then press and hold power button for 15-20 sec. Expect no response since there is no power source. After that, try if pc will now turn on. If it still wont, possibly it will be needing a motherboard replacement.

Toshiba without battery

1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.

Battery problems Tc 1100

When the Batt is inserted and you are on AC power do you have a lit charge light? It's the one in the center of the three at the lower right when you are in landscape mode.
If your batt is at "end of mission" (**** up) then it's ability to hold and take a charge may be very limited. Calibrating the batt might help. You will need the toaster style charger.
If this is the issue, then the charge light may only stay on for a few seconds at a time when you first attach AC power, so be watching.
I could recommend a new batt (e-bay) if thats your only trouble. Nothing lasts forever. I'm in Missouri and will calibrate your batt if you want to mark it and ship it. Let me know.
