Question Battery/won't turn on problems (another one!) - 02-26-2010, 03:55 PM

My Mini10 is just over a year old (yeah, just out of warranty!) and has recently developed an annoying habit of not turning on.
It makes no difference if it's on AC or battery, and it's nothing to do with the level of charge when it was turned off. I press the on button and absolutely nothing happens, no light, nothing.

I can solve it by (high tech this...) taking the battery out and putting it back in! Then it turns on just fine!

I'm assuming this means I should get a new battery, right? But I don't understand why it's still a problem even when it's plugged in to the mains...

Suggestions? I use it a lot for work and am about to fly several thousand miles with it and I'll be in big trouble if it doesn't work when I get there!
