RE: when i plug charger in laptop battery light shows,but i cant turn the power on.elonex onet

rather sounds like a failed motherboard though that would be impossible to confirm without physically checking the machine
This can't be very old - is it still under warranty? If so speak to Elonex
If its not under warranty its difficult to advise - I for one don't know how easy it will be to get into one of these small machines. If the motherboard has blown I suspect spares may be an issue as well. Machines like this are perceived very much as disposable / non-repairable
Your best answer may well be to speak to Elonex

If anyone is wondering
here is the Elonex page for this model

here is a fairly descriptive review

Hi,there is a Laptop repair company in Cambridge that will arrange to pick up the laptop wherevfer youre in the UK, and will get it diagnosed and will quote you. It is a repairable job and will cost around £70 plus VAT if it is the Board

By the way they are called Cambridge Laptop Repairs. You can google them

Luis
I see you are based in Cambridge and specialise in laptops

That post looks worryingly like a plug for yourself
And you do realise this is not a "laptop" but a small ultracheap device with a 7" screen. The cost new would only have been around £130. I really don't think a repair is necessarily the correct way to go

Good evening all

I just came across the page whilst researching some SEO. I, in fact own Cambridge Laptop Repair. The above poster (Luis P) is not affiliated with CLR. Although I am fairly sure he is one of our customers.

I just wanted to clarify that it was not self promotion on our part, but a recommendation from a local customer.
