First get rubbing alcohol (higher % the better) and brush both ports on the phone and the charger. Blow dry it for a minute or so and plug in.

If still no-go, then try it with another charger....if the same result, the phone has a bad charging port and need to be replaced.

The newer phones are coming out with very sensitive ports, so you have to be finesse with them.

Asus x553m wont power up. Not turning on or charging


OK, first make sure that the power supply/charger is in working condition, tested in another Asus computer. IF it works, then your MB (Mother board) is fried.
Sometimes the BIOS get stuck, but that can be fix by taking out the battery and press and hold the power button for a minute. This will clear or reset the BIOS. But if it doesn't show any sign of charging, it's either the battery, charger or MB.

I put my U5i to charge and when I woke up in the morning it was shut down and I can't turn it on...In two words the phone died.


Did you drop the phone in water recently? Did you get it wet in the rain? Apart from the likely possibility that the phone is actually damaged/battery damaged, this happens if the power button gets damaged. When you put the phone to charge, in the middle of the night the power button "acted" as if it was pressed and held and the phone turned off. Now when you press the power button, nothing happens because the power button is damaged.

Take it to a repair shop and check the power button for damage. It is replaceable and should not cost a lot.

Does your phone have a removable battery? If yes then you might be in luck. If not, then just take the phone to repair shop and get the power button checked and repaired.

If battery is removable I know that it is possible to turn on the phone this way:
1) Plug in the charger to the phone
2) Remove the battery and insert it immediately. Do this multiple times and the phone should turn on without having to press the power button.
Hope that works.

Make sure your plugged in and the battery is charged up. Usually the laptop won't stay on for ten days because the battery needs recharging. Press the power button for about 5 seconds then try pressing the power button again to restart what happens?

I have a feeling that when you ran the battery down it is now struggling to get and hold a charge.
If you have a friend with a similar battery perhaps try that, or go to a mobile store and ask them to try a new battery for you.

My ipod nano wont do anything


  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.


Hope this helps

HELP!!!!! My zune's buttons are not working!!!!!


Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

Make sure the OS is compatible

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.



Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
