    i bought flytouch 3 for a great price and everything was ok , i updated the firmware to 'tim6a' and was very impressed until the charger started to act gay so i bought another charger which was supposed to be same voltage "5v" , anyway when i plugged it in the tablet i heard a noise and smell but the tablet was still working fine but won't charge - so i took it to some electricity guy and when he checked the DC was working fine and he managed to fix the stock charger but it won't charge anymore so i assume the charging circuit or whatever on the motherboard burnt please anyone who can help fixing this don't hesitate to reply its urgent... thank you :)

    If you have had the mains power supply checked and it is working correctly but the tablet now wont accept a charge then the circuitry inside the tablet has been damaged. There are posts with pictures showing a blown capacitor on the pcb following a reverse connected psu, and that may be what has happened in your case, but the only way to be sure is to open the tablet up and have a look for the damage.

    You also need to ensure which voltage flytouch you have ..look on the ORIGINAL charger, see if it is 5 volts or 9 volts output. The centre pin should be positive and the outer sleeve negative.


    The 476J marking makes it a 47uF 6.3volt surface mount tantilum capacitor

    Glad you got it working again. If you get stuck you will find replacement chargers on ebay or ************. MAKE SURE you specify the 5 volt version :D:D

    a 5300mAh battery should give you around 3 to 4 hours use.. possibly a little more depending on wifi,gps and battery quality.....
