This is #3 replacement and I have had it almost 3 weeks and last night it started acting up. It was flashing the light red indicating low battery charge. I did put it on the charge but it would not boot up.
I left it overnight and now its dead.
Nothing brings it up.
Anyone have battery issues? Could it be the charging cord?
Make sure you are using the provided Dell charger and USB cable. The unit uses a higher wattage charger then the standard USB. A good example is, if I keep my DS7 on and have it charge with a regular USB connected to my computer, the DS7 power consumption is higher then the charge rate, and the unit will still die over time. If you are not able to charge, it could be a bad cable or AC charger. try to charge it one time with the unit off. The next thing you need to make sure is that the AC unit is not killing your DS7s due to wrong voltage or amps from a broken charging unit. Download a power app to see the consumption vs charge rate.
It will NOT turn on. Its Dead. I have had it on charge overnight. The lights were flickering on/off last night but since I put it on the charger oernight ....nothing.
I would have to get another charger from the store to see if the one I have is defective
I cant get the unit to turn on to DL anything LOL
I will get my meter and measure voltage and see if there is anything
have you tried a soft reset with the button near the sd card? Just to make sure its not a software issue rather then a battery issue. Good luck. BTW, make sure you get a DS7 charger, the regular DS has a lower watt charger.
Well its a dead tablet. We took it back to the store and they used their charger and tried it. DEAD as a doornail.
Unfortunatly, they have no replacements and they spent 20 minutes calling around for one.
New shipment comes in sometime during the week.
I dont have much of a choice but have to try another, Since its been over 30 days and I am tied into a 2 year contract now.
Sorry to hear that. Did they take back the chargers too? Id hate to use the same old chargers if they are killing your tablets. Also Id be leary of any USB port you may have used. My brother had a usb port that killed 3 Zunes.
Good luck! Are you still in your period to back out the 2yr contract?
I am having the same problem. Battery is not charging. It doesn't recognize the charger being plugged in and the battery is discharging (according to Settings -> About -> Status). Is there a way to remove the battery on a Dell Streak 7? It is one of the suggestions I have seen. Also, what is the procedure for a soft reset?
After numerous software, on/off issues, contacting Dell, my TWO Dell Streaks will only do the red blinking light.
It's not the charger. I have 3 of them, all from Dell. They are charged up, but now won't turn on.
I NOW KNOW WHY DELL HAS STOPPED SELLING THESE DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS!
I should have gone with my instinct and went with IPADS because I'm sure Apple has answers for their products.
For now....I have 2 brand new, DEAD DELL Streak 7's that my daughters can't use one of their MAJOR Christmas presents.
This is the second Dell Streak 7 replacement I have because of the battery will not charge. I am using the correct Dell charger and cable but it is not recognizing the charging being pluggged in. How do you remove the batter and check it. Or do you have any other suggestions .
