Just purchased a Kindle Fire HD7. Start up instructions say to charge battery by plugging device into power adapter via USB cord. Is there another way to charge device since I have no plug which fits the...


An adapter should have come with your Kindle Fire HD7 when you purchased it. The USB 2.0 cord is universal, so you could plug it into your computer and charge it that way also (while the computer is on).

I am assuming that you checked to make sure you had all the parts. Included in the Box Fire HD 7 tablet, USB 2.0 cable, 5W power adapter, and Quick Start Guide

If there are no power points in your vehicle, you might have to purchase a battery-operated powerpack and plug the GPS into that via a USB/AC adapter.

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

Flip video won't charge


If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.

Av 400 - will not turn on


Hi, my archos does the exact same thing, however, when I press on, it turns on, then I hear a "click" and it turns itself off. Only when I have the charger plug in does the archos logo continue to remain on the screen. Did you find out what our problem is?
