Hurricane Florence Alert:
A rather large hurricane is set to hit the East Coast of the United States at the end of this week. Because of its size and threat to life & property there have already been significant evacuations in the areas expected to be hit worst. Hopefully things do not turn out as bad, but we will probably see shipping delays to and from that area (our North America distribution center is in Memphis, TN, close to the area).
If you are in the US region and you order something during this period, please see check for possible alerts.

Power Surge on the USB Port CTH-470 [RESOLVED]

Postby SkyeArte » Sun 24. Dec 2017, 19:53

I'm having trouble connecting my device to my laptop running windows 10. The tablet has been used for two years and has previously connected just fine to this and other computers. Whenever I try to plug in the USB, even just the chord itself, it comes up with an error message and won't connect.
The errors only happened after about a month without use. I've even been able to use it for a short amount of time recently (5 minutes today) before getting the message again. There are some minute physical issues, but from being able to connect for a short while, I don't think that's the issue.

I've restarted the laptop, reset the ports, and uninstalled/reinstalled the usb drivers and it still either comes up with the error message or doesn't do anything. I can't find any forums about this issue that are answered.

The message could be result of a bad cable with a shortcut. I would try to use another cable. And check if there might be something burnt.
