T42 2373-CS8 Dead - won't power on at all

#1 Post by rzl » Sun Jan 08, 2012 11:12 am

Hello,
as of topic, my T42 won't turn on at all.

It has been lying around for a while in my repository downstairs (kinda humid environment).

But when i took it back, it didn't turn on at all.

I just see the battery led blinking for half a second when i plug the battery back or when i plug the power cable, nothing else.

If i plug the unloaded battery, it loads. Nothing else happens.

Any hints ?

When my t42 arrived this week it was doing the same thing.
Then I unplugged wc and removed the battery and hold the on/off key for ten seconds.

While holding the key plug the wc adapter.
then try to turn it on.

If you had scrolled down just a tad on the first page you would have found these two threads, which might help you :wink:

I don't know what "wc" is either, but I think you can be fairly confident that it's AC power (i.e. plugged into the wall).

WC stands for Water Closet, another word for toilet, loo, bathroom etc.
It's doubtful that sp9239 meant that!
But if he IS serious, I think he may be talking about a Dell, HP or similar... :mrgreen:
