1st, my plug/charger was not working so I got a new one. In the days of waiting for the plug, I guess the battery drained completely. I turned it off last when there were about 8% left.
Now, plugging the new cord, it is not charging. I see the white light on the tip of the charger that connects to the mini so to me the new plug is working. But I can't turn on my mini because, I think, the battery is not charging. I've left it charging for hours and I do not feel the heat.
1. Even if the battery does not work, or if I remove the battery, why does the mini not turn on using the plug? Does it need to have battery to turn on even though the plug is plugged to the electricity?
2. Any suggestions please?!?! I got this in Nov 2009 so I don't think it should act this way already. I have taken good care of it: not throwing it anywhere, waiting for the battery to go to 10% and when the red light blinks then charge it, wiping dust, etc.
3. Is the only solution to buy a new battery? It seems in the past as long as it is on, it charges. But when it's off it doesn't sometimes. And now, it is not charging at all and I can't turn it on.
Thanks for any tips/help!
