ASUS notebook with batteries 100% charged.
I was reinstalling printer drivers and then connected the printer USB cable to the notebook... it immediately turned off... with no light at all, no sound. I tried to turn it on even plugging the AC adaptor. Dead! Any suggestion?
Did you try disconnecting the printer again, and then try powering it on? Should that not work, try the following and see if it will turn on...
NOTE: Yes, I know some batteries are not so easy to get to, on some devices. However, it should be removable/replaceable. Unless it is under warranty, then you should contact the manufacturer first.
1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.
If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.
Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
