Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

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

Sorry to hear of any trouble.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Name & Number of the device you are working with?

2) The AGE and CONDITION of the device? (especially the battery life when not connected to power)

3) What type of of computer (Windows, Mac) do you have the device connected to and does the computer "see" the device when connected?

Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you see ANY requests for "additional services" - such as a phone call - please understand that these are OPTIONAL and sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me), and I am NOT available by phone at the moment. Feel free to DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.

Thanks
