  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Wholemeal Flour
  • 1 Cup White Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence

PENDO 360 Flip Convertible Dead Won’t Boot – no charge light indicator

If your pendo won’t start up and when you plug it in to charge the charge light does not turn on try this:

  1. Plug the charger in and leave it for 2 hours (it seems the light will  not turn on if the battery has been fully depleted)
  2. Remove the charger
  3. Press and hold the power button for 2 seconds, then release it and wait 10 seconds.
    1. Repeat this step 2-3 Times, usually this will bring it back to life
  4. Plug the charger back in and charge to full battery (this will probably take a few hours)

PENDO 360 Flip Convertible Fix ‘Plugged In Not Charging Problem’ after Windows 10 Update

This is how I fixed the charging problem with my PENDO 360 Flip ( PENDO 11.6″ Convertible ).

After updating windows 10 the it will say ‘Plugged in, Not Charging’.

To fix the issue you need to re-install the drivers for the battery and charger by doing the following:

  1. If your Flip has run flat, plug it in for two hours before attempting to turn it on.
    1. Leave the charger plugged in.
    2. Hopefully this will let it start again.
  2. Press the [windows] key and [R] at the same time. A run box should appear.
  3. In the box next to the promt ‘Open’ enter ‘compmgmt.msc’.
  4. Then press ‘OK’.
  5. In the screen that appears select ‘Device Manager’ and then ‘Batteries’.
  6. You should see the following:pendo_fix_not_charging
  7. Click each item under ‘Batteries’ and then click the red ‘x’ to remove it.
  8. Then restart your Flip.
  9. The charger should then start working again.
