After plugging into power, wont turn on

Plugged power cord from a car charger into port and the Deck shutoff. Couldn't power it back on. Looked into other solutions to fix the problem after I got home to a solid power outlet (plugging it in for an hour then hold the power button, holding volume button and power button for X amount of seconds ect). Don't know what I should do as of now its an expensive paperweight.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

As in car charger you mean the one inside the car? It may have sent too much energy through or something like that.

Maybe that happened? I don't know the exact wattage what the port had but yes it was a standard car charger you would put into a cigarette lighter port.


After thinking about it, I don’t think the steam deck would have died bcuz the cigarette lighter port has little wattage
