Faulty Battery ¶ 

If your Ematic will not hold a charge or is dead, the battery might be drained. Charge your Ematic, by plugging it into your computer or AC adapter. Your Ematic should begin to charge its battery. The charging light should be on. If the Ematic will no longer charge, you will need to replace the battery. You can use the battery replacement guide: Ematic EGQ307 Battery Replacement.

Flattened Battery ¶ 

Your battery may have become "flattened" to where it can't accept charge from the wall charge. Try trickle charging your tablet from a low voltage connection. Trickle charging is where you charge the battery at much lower voltage than normal. Lithium based batteries are known to be highly sensitive to overcharging, which may prevent the battery from holding charge. A low voltage charge can be a PC USB port, or a low powered phone charger. Try to trickle charge for 8 to 10 hours.
