Charging issues

Post by fluffyhead69 »

I have just bought a Arnova 10 g2 off a mate who has not used it in a couple of months as he lost the charger so has not been used in a while.
I read that nokia chargers work with it so i have had it plugged in for the last 2-3 hours and i get a green charging light but it flickers red every second or so. I cant boot it up. I have tried holding the power button for 20 seconds but i have no idea.

Any suggestions?

What you want to see is red, which means its charging and not ready for use. I think you can find an expanded manual on arnovatech.com.

I've started to use a non standard charger, and found sometimes it likes to flip to green while uncharged (=off). So i unplug and replug until it goes operational... that is red. It will eventually go green when charged, but i may unplug earlier because the last one percent takes an extra hour on mine.
