    Hello. I have the original Surface Pro, bought when it first came out, now out of warranty. When I plug in the charger the light goes on, then off on the charger. Thinking that the charger was no good (my third) I bought a new one, with the same results. Battery is now dead. I would think that plugging it in would at least have it running off ac, unless the battery is is no good and then I'm out a Surface. I do have all my work backed up, but really like this tablet and hope there is a solution here. Thoughts? TIA

    I'm surprised it won't bypass the battery and run on the mains... can anyone else confirm this? If it really is dead, you could be brave and attempt a manual replacement :confused:

    I take it you're in the US? In the UK there's a company called Repairs UK that charge a maximum of £250 for a Surface repair... maybe see if there's something near to you that's similar?
