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

Turned off the tablet, unplugged the charger and kept the tablet off for about 30 minute to one hour, plugged in back the charger, then turn on the tablet. After that I you might see the tablet started charging. Good Luck.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...


It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new battery.as well.

Truck wont start red light keeps blinking fast keep hearing clicking under the hood and in the cab dont know what happened got in the truck to start it, and had driven down the road and it died. now the...


THAT SOUNDS LIKE LOW VOLTAGE. PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY WHILE TURNING THE KEY IN THE START POSITION. IF THE VOLTAGE DROPS BELOW 8 VOLTS, THAT IS TOO LOW. BATTERY NEEDS TO BE CHARGED OR REPLACED & TERMINALS CLEANED. IF IT STARTS CHECK THE CHARGING SYSTEM. MOTOR RUNNING, VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD READ 13.90 TO 14.90. IF IT IS TOO LOW GET THE ALTERNATOR TESTED.

Screen wont turn on


You are going to have to ty a hard reset. Don't worry about things being deleted from the phone, as your phone auto syncs with Gmail when you enter your account info again.

To hard reset...turn the phone on while holding home and back. Follow on screen prompt.

If that doesn't work try..

Hold home and power buttons
once phone is on, open keyboard and hold alt first + w

80GB video ipod is not turning on.instead the apple symbol blinks


Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge just enough so that it can sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

Battery problem,...


I had this problem with mine so lets start by saying there are solutions!!

Solution 1:

Logitech state the battery cannot be replaced. It CAN. You can purchase the exact battery from ebay. Its a simple case of taking the orange backing off, removing all the screws (not forgetting the one hidden under the bluetooth address sticker) and popping the keyboard apart. From there, flip out the battery, pop in the new one, put it all back togeather and voila.

Solution 2:

Now if you dont care about your warrenty or it has none (as does mine) there are two contacts on the back of the keyboard which connect to the charger stand. Having took the keyboard apart, solder a wire onto each contact and then solder onto the battery connection contacts taking care to match red to red and black to black. Every time the keyboard is docked it will charge until you remove it. One other thing to note is that the low battery will keep flashing at you now and again (according to logitech you have about 10 mins use left until battery gives up) I have been using it for over 5 hours like this and its still going strong.

Enjoy.
