A70h won't come on, and seems to refuse to charge.

Post by Arishon »

Ok so this morning I took it off charge and the battery went from 100% to 36%... so I rebooted it. no change. I then left it on charge for 8 hours while I went to work. the battery said 0% and charging when I left. when I got home it still said 0%, and then the screen went black, and I cannot get the bugger to come back on... holding the power button does nothing. a single press makes the led blink rapidly, but nothing else... anyone got any thoughts?

from my own experience, rapid blinking does indicate a fully discharged battery - if it's still under warranty, then rma is your best option. Personally, I would keep it plugged in to the charger for a couple of days and it may come back to life - failing that or rma, you are looking at opening the device up and testing the battery with a multimeter and trying to source a new one if required
