Hi njspencer3

Sounds like your power supply is faulty. Do you have access to another power supply(same type) to try in your computer. Sometimes, the computer may be the problem also,but you will have to work out which one is causing the problem. If the machine is a couple of years old, BEFORE YOU SPEND MONEY it may also need a new battery AND a power supply. Take it to a place that sells replacement power supplies and try a new one it it. :)

My charger won't charge. Computer detects plugged in but no charge

This is usually caused by an old or defective battery or possibly the power supply is a few volts too low to activate the charge indicator. It might be charging but not letting you know.
Try to run it off battery for a while (look at the battery life) and then plug it back to for a while then unplug it again to see if the battery life if higher than before.
To check the power supply you will need a volt meter that can read at least 20 vdc (most power supplies are 19 vdc). Put one lead of the meter on the inside of the plug that goes into the computer and the other pin on the outer silver part while the power supply is plugged into the wall outlet. You should read close to what the Output Voltage on the power supply says which should be on the sticker on the back or side of the black box part of the power supply.

Sansa fuze 2gb wont turn on or charge

Mine did the exact same thing, (Even the going to bed thing) I'm glad you posted your question. Incidentally enough after trying to turn-off and on for ten minutes, I pressed all the buttons a whole bunch to show it my frustration.....then it worked. (?) I don't know why, but I think that the computer going into hibernation or shutting off affected it.

I dont know how to use my coby mp550 mp3 player

Read. The. Manual. I'm sorry if this sounds rude, but it really should go without saying. If you've lost the manual, Look for it at the Manufacturer's Website.
But essentially (and generically): To turn on: Press (and maybe hold down) Power Button (sometimes play button) until turns on. Ditto to turn off. To Charge: Plug it into the Computer (Make sure the computer is on). To sync Music. Plug it into the side of the computer, open WMP. Look for device in Library. Drag songs/playlist across.
And in future. Read. The. Manual. Thank You.

Running prob

The only issues I have had with my '02 Fse400 running wise have been with the charging circuit and only because of loose/broken wires. They run terribly if they don't have proper (14.4v) voltage. At the end of the day they are just another motorcycle if your dealer can't fix it find a better mechanic.,,,

Forgot my password for my motorola l7 cell phone

You need to register at MotoDev and download the USB hanset drivers. Then you need to download P2k Advanced editor. Theres a Password tab in that program to read the currect Security code and Unlock code.

The Unlock code, is not the code to unlock the mobile from a certain provider. Just incase anyone reading this thought that whould be the case.

Try this and let me know.
