    Power Cord to Power supply Issue

    My thanks to everyone that responded to my problem. I decided to solve the problem with a better designed charger with the same power cord that one finds with HP's laptops. Cost less money ($22.00) than otherwise jacking around with an exchange at a Best Buy 50 miles away.

Meaning I suspect I may have a new power supply that requires a different wall chord than...

    Power Cord to Power supply Issue

    No question that something is not correct. I was thinking the chord in question was intended for use with a different version of the charger. Unfortunately the nearest physical Microsoft Store is some 90 miles away. The unit was purchased at a Best Buy the nearest of which is some 50 miles...

    Power Cord to Power supply Issue

    Got a new SP3 128GB for Christmas and quickly discovered that the Power Supply wall outlet chord will not lock into the power supply well enough to support a connection. Had to rig a stout rubber band around the chord and then around the power supply to keep the two connected well enough to...

    Charge Indicator Light

    My just out of the box SP3 changes from a Bluish White while charging to a Pale Green when fully charged.
