Question about Power Computers & Internet

Hi, My Jitterbug flip phone will not charge up.

I have a three month old Jitterbug flip phone.It worked great until last week when I noticed the blue charge light would not stop blinking.I checkee all the connections and everything was plugged in properly but my screen was black and it just seemed dead.I tried bypassing the base charger and plugged the power cord straight into the phone but still it will not hold a charge.I am 73 years old and I had really come to depend on my new little phone.Help ,please. Thanks, Bill Wiese

Do you know anyone with a similar Jitterbug?

It would help tremendously if you would try charging your battery in someone else's charger.
If the battery charges then your charger is the problem and not the battery. Useful to know.

I am assuming you have wiped all the contacts with alcohol or contact cleaner, to remove any thin film that might be interfering with electric conduction.

Quite often that persistently blinking charge light indicates a battery that has reached the end of its useful life.

If you buy a new battery be certain to charge it at least 14 hours before you ever put it into the phone.

I repair a lot of digital cameras, watches, cell phones, etc. And contacts that need cleaning or degreasing are quite common.]

SOURCE: roomba 4108 does not charge

Try resetting your Roomba by removing the battery, unplug the charging connector, hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the charging system, replace your battery, connect your charger and see what happens. By the way do you also have a homebase ? If so try that too

SOURCE: Motorola V3m: keyboard lights up:keys frozen,no power to screen.

If you did not replace the firmware,or try and hack the phone then it just died. Nothing last forever. This just means that the light did not die, but the hardware that holds the firmware could have went bad.
You could contact moto and see if they will fix it cheaper than you
can get one off e-bay. You only have 8mo left till your contract runs out. Do not use the upgrade through the carrier,or you are getting robbed. Either wait till it runs out and start a new one or go to, you can get the same exact contract through the same carrier but get a way lower price on the phone,unless the phone you want is free. You could have someone try and reflash
a new firmware on the phone, but I don't think that is the problem.
Hope moto does something for you.

SOURCE: Plantronics Bluetooth Headset P590

This is a "known issue" that I have raised to Plantronics. Whether they do anything about it, remains to be seen. The workaround I have discovered seems to work with both of my P590 headphones that stopped charging:

1. Plug in the USB charging cable to a laptop or computer that is powered on.
2. Connect the USB charging cable to the headphones
3. Connect the 3.5mm headphone cord cable to the headphone output on the laptop of computer (this is the long cable with the normal 3.5mm stereo plug at each end)
4. Plug the other end of the 3.5mm cable into the P590 input.

The headphones should start charging.

Scrolling is inconsistant on Jitterbug flip phone

Customer Service, 1800-733-6632, between the hours of 6am and 7pm Pacific Time.

I noticed one owner indicating a problem with the screen locking up during scrolling with the newer Jitterbug phones. I would take the issue up with customer service. I would have at hand the model number of the phone when I contacted them. As it is supposed to be easy to use and dependable and the customer service award winning, see what they can do for you or what guidance they offer. At the end of the day, your phone should be a convenience rather than a problem.

Hi , I bought a rosewill bk-500a ,now it will not keep a charge. It is only about two weeks old. Any ideas ?

Even though it's new the battery may be shot. I bought something and it said battery good for three years and it lasted for a week. Either take it back or replace the battery yourself if you want to try. But my advise is take it back if its new.
