    having the same problem. Push the start button, and nothing happens. The green a/c power comes on when it's plugged in to the power cord. No noise, no beeps, nothing. I tried taking the battery out and disconnecting power cord...still nothing. Won't power up with the battery in OR out. For a while it would power up after a few tries when I took the battery out. Now there's nothing no matter what I do. I've heard it could be a voltage converter, or possible the a/c cord. However, if the cord is bad, why does the power light come on? Any other ideas? Are compaq just crappy systems? It seems alot of people have this very same issue with Presarios.

Try to remove battery and plug into wall charger and see if it works. If it works, your battery is defective and you have to replace it.
If it still does not work, it could be a problem with the power supply unit on you laptop. I recommend you consult a qualified technician in this regard.
Hope that helps!

Leave it plugged in for a while (like long enough for the battery to fully charge) and try again. Your battery could be shot causing this problem. After a full charge cycle and testing you'll know better what to do, so please post back your results.

Things that you can try:
1. disconnect the charger and the battery. 2. press and hold the power button for 15 secs. w/o the charger and the battery (the reason for that is to drain flea power). 3. connect the laptop straight from the charger w/o the battery and turn it on. It should turn on fine. If nothing happens, the motherboard is bad or the charger.

Nothing happens


The charger connection is sensitive on the Reflex Pro. It isn't uncommon to plug in the charger, see the light flashing, then when setting it down a slight movement of the cable stops the charging (light will stop flashing). Try connecting the charger again (if you haven't already) and let it charge for about an hour. While getting a good charge can be frustrating, it is worth it for the 4 minutes of fun to follow :-\

Motorola S9 headset won't charge batteries


This might work if you aren't using the ORIGINAL charger. I had this problem when my cat chewed through the original Motorola charger. I figured my Blackberry charger would work fine, but it didn't. I then discovered that my Blackberry charger was 700mAH and the broken charger was only 550mAH. When I found another charger with the proper power it charged. I also found that it worked when plugging it into my computer with a standard mini USB. I hope this helps.

Won't turn on


Did you try to disconnect the battery and connect you mac book to the charger? If it turns on with the power connected and without the battery, probably your battery is broken.

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.


Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards
Ken

Dead Creative Zen M


Usually this problem is due to the firmware. When the firmware is updated to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will be corrected. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

You will need a wall/AC charger for the operation. Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected to direct AC power via the wall charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer. Then begin the firmware download.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the wall charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.

If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
