I got this as a gift today. I've read the manual. The battery came with a 2 bar charge and has 1 bar left. The LED green and amber/orange lights do not come on when it's plugged into the wall. I've changed to different outlets, but it's the same result.
When I remove the battery, it won't work at all with only the power supply.
There's no power going from the plug in to the unit.
When I turn it "off", the green LED briefly flickers - but nothing stays on.

Your question was posted under the Nuvi 680 GPS, so I am assuming this is the model that you have.
On the main screen, you will see a green battery status indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The battery is divided into 4 parts. Each part represents 1/4 power. So if you have one green bar, that indicates that the battery has 1/4 of power left. If there are 3 bars, that indicates that there is 3/4 power left.
When the unit is charging, you will see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the green battery status icon.
When the lightning bolt is not there, this means the unit is running off of the battery.
When leaving the unit to charge, press and hold the power button until you see that the screen says Charging Battery. A few seconds later, the screen will go blank to save energy.
Pressing the screen again later will either say Charging Battery or Battery Charge Complete.
1.Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength. 2.If the battery level is low, charge the battery. 3.If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover. 4.Remove the battery. 5.Wait 10 seconds. 6.Press and hold the W key. 7.While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery. •The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears •Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds. Step Thanks
If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
honestly you've done everything correctly that i could think of. one last thing you could try to root out a problem with the os. is boot the computer from hirens boot disk and load the portable Windows. see if the battery is detected in hirens. then youll know if its a Windows problem or not.
personally i feel the board is the issue but it doesn't hurt to check the complete os.
You either have one of the following: 1. Bad Battery 2. Wrong adapter - yours no comprende w/ unit. 3. Cracked Jack - means you've got to get a tech to take the unit apart and replace it. $150-200 4. Goto your device manager, double click bat., then right mouse click on acpi driver and update it. Hopefully that works. or 5. Dell needs to shoot out a bios flash fix.
Chances are your phone got too hot during the night and overcharged the Lithium Ion battery. If those batteries are exposed to too much heat then they won't have the battery life they used to have. You need to purchase a replacement battery or contact your wireless carrier to see about getting another one.
If you start a bike often for just a minute or two over and over again you probably fowled your spark plugs. Replace them and try starting again. If you are worried about the battery, purchase a quick disconnect trickle charger that monitors the battery and only charges when it is needed. A quick disconnect plug is left on the battery which hides on the bike making for quick take offs and plug ins.
New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using
your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some
batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You
can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by
connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the
provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable
provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging
is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the
battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging
icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the
battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full
battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not
remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the
AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging
when it overheats.
When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately
save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power
adapter to charge the battery. • Turn oﬀ your device. Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. JimmyC
