A-380 dies immediately?
« on: March 12, 2015, 02:35:40 am »
Hi all,

I was going through my closet and found my Dingoo A-380 I got a couple years ago. I was excited to use it, so I plugged it in to the USB port on my computer and... nothing. I shrugged it off thinking that it just couldn't charge from my USB port for some reason and plugged it in to the USB charger on my surge protector. It turned on and worked fine. Later I unplugged it to plug it into my computer and put some new files on it, but as soon as I unplugged it, the screen went black. Wouldn't turn on, nothing. Plugging it back into the charger turns it on immediately and it works fine. What's going on?

Sounds like the internal battery is completely dead.   ???

Alright, what kind of battery does it use? Is that something that I can replace?

You can replace it with a new battery.

You can buy a Dingoo replacement battery from DX: http://www.dx.com/nl/p/3-7v-2300mah-replacement-battery-pack-for-dingoo-a-320-30996#.VQGvH0nHK-M

I've got one of these in my Dingoo A-380 and they last longer than the one that came with the console.

Thanks Alien Grey! I actually took it apart and got the battery working, looks like it doesn't need replacing. Now I've broken it in an entirely new way! lol.

It's compatible with the Dingoo A-380. The 2300 mAh battery is a little bit thicker than the original battery so there's a small gap between the front and back but it doesn't bother me.
