Hello Dave & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The AGE of the device?

2) WHEN this issue first began?

3) WHEN was the device last used successfully?

4) What is the condition of the internal battery (how long will the device operate once fully charged then NOT connected to power)?

Thanks
