Does not Turn On

Hi, I'm not sure why it does not turn on...I definitely know that it's out of battery and I'm charging it now (using the USB type of charger) does not show any reaction! I'm not sure if it's the cable(charger) or the Ipod player itself that is malfunctioning..pls help.

Thanks in advance

I got this tablet for Christmas. Used it a few times. Now it won't charge and won't turn on. It kept blinking the IRULU screen today but now its not doing anything. What do I need to do?

This may be a permanent problem, though it may also just be a battery problem.

If possible try checking the cord on another device that you know works to make sure it is functioning properly. Then try plugging in the tablet to charge, USB to the wall if possible and let it charge for a day or so. Feel free to check it every couple of hours to see if it is turning on. This may just be a battery memory issue, or an extremely drained battery -- though there could be some type of damage.

If you can't get it to turn on after a couple of days of charging then you should probably look into some return or replacement options.

Hope that helped. Good luck.

Will not turn on?The power light will not even come on.


You can try this, change the battery & see if it will turn on & if it does then the problem is on the battery. Another thing is try charging the PSP into a computer using the USB cable, if it charges then the problem is the charger.
If the 2 solutions does not work you might want to replace the motherboard on your PSP cause definitely it is a power supply problem.
Hope that help!

NS-DCC5HB09 High Definition Flash Media Camcorder: mine wont turn on and i dont have a charger!!! Hel...

You should be able to recharge this unit by connecting to your PC and charging through your USB connection.

If your battery is faulty or unable to recharge, here's a replacement battery that's available:

Just about any AC to USB charger will work to recharge this unit, so if you have an iPod with the iPod wall charger, use the correct USB cable with the wall charger and you will be able to recharge the battery in the camcorder.

Hope this helps!

Does it use battery only or charger


It depends on the Model of the camera. Few camera's do have that function and few don't.

However, most models do not have this feature as this would require a built in charge circuit, which would complicate the design and definitely increase the size of the camera. Even large cameras don't (usually) have built in charging circuits.

The thing to remember is that in order to charge the battery you must have the same voltage as the original charger. USB ports only supply 5volts... typically at 500mah or less. If your camera does not allow for the battery to be charged in the camera then it won't matter because you will need an external charger.

Be careful about he type of external charger you buy because lithium batteries are dangerous if charged incorrectly.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do i charge the battery

You found my camera??? Just kidding. The batteries will likely charge through the USB, but how long depends on a lot of factors, such as USB type (1 or 2), camera type, battery type, and battery age. Overnight will definitely do it, but the only way to check the charge level is to put the batteries back in the camera and check the charge status on the screen display.

Other options:

Check with camera manufacturer on line - they may have a stand alone charger for the battery pack.

If individual batteries (e.g AA) will work in the camera, any generic battery charger will work.

You can also use non-chargeable (alkaline) batteries if the camera will acept individual batteries.

Enjoy the freebie!

I just received my Garmin for XMAS and it was working fine but now it just seemed to not charge. Then the little pic on the front shows the GPS connected to a computer desktop. HELP! Amber Fader

Does it turn on at all? Try to charge it on car adaper then, when it will turn on, try this.

The picture is displayed while it is charging through USB cable and you can't normally use GPS.
Turn the GPS on without the USB plugged in, then press the Battery symbol for about 10 seconds, until the test screen appears. Then plug in the USB.
Screen will tell you percentage of charge, and if it is charging.
***Make sure you press EXIT before unplugging the USB cable. Press EXIT, turn GPS off, then remove the cable is safest way

On the bottom you should see "USB type" if nothing is there, it may be the USB port on your computer. Try it again with a different port

Will not turn on

hi thanks for using fixya!

If you cannot really turn on the power of your Imate, even if you are charging it, make sure you are using appropriate charger! Once you have a chance to turn the power, try to make a hard reset. Or better if still not charging, try to recharge it using your USB cable and connect it to your pc or laptop.

And about the battery, usually it will not last for a year, atleast 6 months we need to change the battery especially PDAs, to have the efficient performance of it. Try to buy a new battery and test it. If still not work, perhaps you have a problem with the charger.

Good luck! if you need further assistance, let me know!

Please rate my solution positively! thanks!

Wont turn on

I don't know if this applies to the Sansa for sure or not but many MP3 devices and smartphones if completely dischard will not charge back up via usb to computer, you have to use a wall jack charger. This is true for the Motorola Q and other smart phones I know for a fact, also the Apple Ipod Gen 5 has had some issues with charging after complete discharge of the battery. Try a wall charger if possible. I don't know much about the sansas.

Phone wont turn on!

i have noticed that the mini plug for the charger and usb connection on RAZR V3 is sometimes sloppy. when the phone is charging it will definitely say battery charging on the external display and also flash the battery icon. i also noticed that the plug for the wall outlet is touchy.
make sure the plug is secure in the wall outlet
make sure the mini plug is secure in the phone
gently wiggle these connections if you have to till you get the battery charging message
if there are any connection problems there will be a unable to charge message instead.
