Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) When was the device last used SUCCESSFULLY?

2) Was it connected to a power source that last time, and if so, what power source?

3) What power source was it connected to for the 4 hour charge time, and when was that done?

Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.

I see it has been a few days and I haven't seen a response on this page, so I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue OR if the issue was resolved?

I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.

Thanks, ***** *****
