Default Mini 1010 dead. Charger or Battery? - 12-22-2010, 01:50 AM

When we plug it in the white light doesn't even come on.

Both the charger and battery are pretty old and beat up. Is there any way to tell which could be bad? Will the mini run plugged in without a battery?

Thanks for the help!

yes, you can run the unit without the battery in, if it doesnt work, it could be the charger itself....of course not with it on, turn it off, remove the battery and plug it back in..should be easy to figure out which it is...unless of course its both....but by removing the battery that should help a little....
