    My motorola xoom won't charge at all?

    The light doesn't come on, I try to reboot and it turns on then turns straight back off. The charger is new and I only got it today so it can't be that. HELP?

    Two things spring to mind:

    A dodgy cable, (annoyingly common), or;

    You Ned to leave it to charge a bit. It might be so flat that its not even got residual charge to power the light. This would also explain the powering off straight away.


    Not sure, but those are the two things that spring to mind.

    plug it in, wait 10 min, then power cycle the xoom (hold power and volume up), if it doesnt work, and/or xoom doesnt power up, then either cable is bad, or xoom power supply/board is bad, or your xoom is just bricked.

    i have power cycled my xoom after attaching power cord with 4% on battery ( power indicator shows red exclamation mark) and it works fine as it charges, if yours doesnt, then something is broken

    I have also run it till it shuts down, plugged it in, then immediately booted it back up and used it as it charged

    My light doesn't come on when charging unless the Xoom is completely "off" (i.e. NOT sleeping). When it's sleeping and I connect the charger, there is no light but it still charges.

    I've found the light to be rather temperamental, to be honest. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Been better the last few weeks though.

    Also could consider buying a dock. It will charge with the pins instead of the jack then.

    Just wanted to make sure I understand this correctly. Can I charge the Xoom with just the wall cord without the dock?

    US Xoom 1st Gen (I think)

    Yes. The stock charger is a wall plug charger

    IMHO the charger jack in the Xoom is a POS - very fragile. With my Xoom if I plug in the stock charger it won't charge but if I plug the charger into the dock and put the Xoom in the dock it changes.As it happens I have an extra dock -if anyone in the STL area wants it, pm me :-)
    What would Jack Florey do?
