Probably you need a new power adaptor/charger

Hi Patti,

New compatible chargers can be found at very reasonable prices on ebay. Possibly also second hand original ones.

Here in the UK I just bought a new compatible one for under £6

Sort by p + p ascending.

Make sure the wattage is the same, or better still, greater.

Cooling is a problem with many devices (such as these), thus I add stick-on rubber feet underneath to raise, and make sure it is on hard surface.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
