Linx 7 not charging when on

Postby ashdharas » April 29th, 2015, 10:21 pm

Bit of an odd one, my linx doesn't charge when it's on only when it's off, it used to charge without issue but suddenly it doesn't, I've tried multiple adapters thinking it maybe under powered but nothing any ideas?

I'm having the same problem. It used to charge whether it was on or off but today it will only charge when switched off.

I have the same issue as well, and it's making me wanna throw the tablet out my window. If I use the tablet, with the power connected, it still drains the battery, regardless of screen brightness. If the power is connected when I turn it on, it might charge if left alone without use, just being on.
This is all on Win 10, and I've tried several different chargers. From looking around online, it seems it's a common problem and the closest I've seen to a solution was a guy who uninstalled his battery drivers in device manager :< Is that safe to do? Are there any other solutions?

(And sorry for the necro :< )

You are correct, its a very old windows issue. I have removed battery driver and rebooted and it reinstalls.
Only problem is, this solution normally requires you to remove the battery after removing driver. In a tablets case, this cant happen.
