The blue light on the charger will not light up anymore and my guess is that it's broken, but it hasn't even been a year yet.

The most likely scenario is that you need a new battery. Before making that decision you should run some diagnostic tests. It's possible that the battery has completely discharged and is struggling to begin charging again. Try some of these approaches.

1. Download and install BatteryMon 2.1 from this site:

2. Run BatteryMon.

3. Look to see if BatteryMon can recognize your battery and if the battery is charging.

4. If the battery cannot be recognized you should try plugging and unplugging the battery to see if you can get BatteryMon to recognize the battery. If you have no success skip to step 6.

5. If the battery is recognized but won't charge, then you should shutdown Windows with the battery installed and try and charge the battery with the computer off but plugged in. If you still don't see a solid light indicating the battery is charging, take the battery out and plug it back in; several times if necessary.

6. If you still have no success try this similar method:
6a. With the computer powered off remove the battery.
6b. Power it on and leave it for a couple of minutes until it fully boots up.
6c. Carefully slide the battery back into the computer and leave it on for 10 minutes.
6d. If you're lucky the battery should now start to charge (if it does leave it charging for at least 3-4 hours straight and you should be back in business).
6e. Repeat this process several times.

7. One last method to try is the freeze method.

7a. Take the battery out and put it in a zip lock bag. Remove ALL of the air out and seal it.
7b. Place it in the freezer for 2-6 hours and take it out.
7c. Place the battery in the laptop and connect the charging cable while the laptop is OFF. Wipe all condensation off the battery as it forms with a paper towel.
If all goes well, you should be able to bring the battery back to life. This usually happens when you let the battery reach 0% and don't charge it for an extended period of time.

Hopefully one of these approaches will cause your battery to begin charging.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Battery dead on psp. Only have USB,ps3 how to charge

Hi there,

There should be a USB slot on your PSP, you need one side of that USB cable to be a mini input though. Plug the mini input into the PSP and the other side into your computer, then leave it to charge.
Hope that helps.

Dead Phone?

The D-wade sidekick 3 uses a charging port. You should see a little round plug in on one end of the phone. you will need to get a charger from eBay. They are about 3-5 dollars shipped.

The usb cable is only used for transferring data, no charge capability exists for it

Hi Shuvz_miah-

Plug in the AC adapter connector into the right side of the computer with the other end connected to a cable that will be plugged into the wall outlet. Leave the computer connected until the battery is fully charged and the battery light turns off.

Hope that helps,
