First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Dropped my new zte n9130 boost mobile phone when it was just about dead . Went to charge it and no light no charge and not turning on?? Is this product a good one?


You may have knocked loose the little "plug" that your charger fits into to charge it. It is soldered onto the board inside and, and if it is no longer attached it won't charge anymore.

See if the plug jiggles a bit if you play with it when a cord is plugged in. If it moves that is a problem and means that you need a repair. Even if it doesn't move, it may just be packed in there tight but is still broken.

Emerson emp287c-4 wont charge with usb


Having same issue, battery will not charge. Can't even use it unless its plugged into my computer the whole time. Followed the charging instructions, "turn power switch on and then use the usb cord provided to plug the device into the computer." I do so and it reads that it is charging, however the bar never goes to the green charge symbol. It said to not let it charge past 8 hours so I always unplug it before that. Even tried the recommended 3-5 hours and still I turn it on and it says right away battery low.

My Alesis Transactive Mobile PA is not working. The charging light illuminates only when initially plugged in, then turns off. I'm thinking the battery may be dead even though I've only used t


Mine works when plugged in, but dead when not plugged. Found fuse, subtly hidden in lower part of AC power receptacle; pried out with small screw driver. Looked good & passed ohmmeter check. I loved the beast when it functioned. It spent a year in the garage; it didn't work when I brought it in. Charge light on for 8 seconds after plugging in, then off.

Will not take a charge


I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.
