Try re-inserting power cable as for charging satisfy the charging light is on. (If it Has One) While charging, turn on see if it works? If pos do your biz close trying not tomove unit, could be a faulty connection, not locating properly in socket?

    Would the other laptop be same, nah! don't suppose so (If yes,swap batteries)

    Failing that it would appear the laptop only runs when battery is in place and battery is charging or charged?

    Leads me to suspect battery faulty or passed sell by date? If new even new ar known to be faulty.

    Personnally I keep a spare. Sorry can't be of any more assistance, unless you have a meter and are a little DIYer to checkout the power in the battery.?

My new next book which is a computer/tablet is not turning on. It was charging when I had to do something. 10 minutes later, I come back and it's not turning on. Now when it is charging there is a light...

You should always charge to full charge before using your device. It's also preferable to use original charger and cables but if the charge indicator light doesn't come to green after 8h of charge, you should first try to use a different cable and plug it to a computer in charging mode. You'll see if your cable is the problem. If it's not you might have to send it for repair.

Hope this helps

Presario CQ62 notebook pc charge problem! when I plugged charger its light always turn to flash and it says not recharging. But when I off my pc the orange light always show. Plz help

How old is the battery? In what year was it manufactured?
Batteries _DO_ wear out, i.e., fail to recharge.
You can either buy a new battery (eBay is a good place to look),
or find a company that disassembles the battery, and replaces the cells that take/hold a charge,
i.e., like replacing the batteries inside a flashlight, instead of totally discarding the flashlight.

Orange light when I charge my MotoRokr E8!

Kevin you must try charging it with the wall-charger, if that doesn't works, try entering BL mode by pressing # and *, and then pull the trigger to turn it on.

It will tell you that battery is low, you can connect then the charger, pull the trigger again, it should start normally.

H700 wont do anything

I think the charger is the problem. I ordered one of these and then it wasn't charging the day I got's supposed to go from red, to orange to green as it charges, but the red LED just goes off after a while, before the headset is fully charged. I solved this by charging it through a USB-to-miniUSB cable on my laptop USB port. This worked beautifully....unfortunately I think the H700 chargers are faulty.

Brand new psp battery will not charge

Did you charge it first? You need a good initial charge. Depending on the charger, it could be about 6 hours.

Also, remove the battery and check the metal contacts on the top and make sure that they are not covered by anything. Some come with a film to protect them.

Nintendo ds

There are a couple of fuses inside the ds and one of them is right up next to where the charger plugs in try to replace it. It is a little flat black piece with solder on each end and it should have a number on it you with need to replace it with the same number fuse.
