Surface 3: Plugged in but not charging

I know you are so frustrated to arrive at this page. I know; trust me. I’ve been there.

I’m not a pro; I don’t have any scientific explanation for the causes of the famous “plugged in but not charging” issue.

I’ve tried everything out there only to prove most of them fake hopes.

 

My “not charging” scenario:

When my Surface was on, it won’t charge, no matter what I do. However, it could be charged when completely powered down; sometimes.

 

My solution:

Important: each of the following steps may or may not at all be a relevant factor to the solution, but these steps are what I’ve taken. Here is how I solved this issue trial-n-error fashion.

 

Perhaps you have already updated the battery driver for more than 6 times and is feeling stupefied and is asking God “why me”.  Well, I’m not going to tell you to update battery driver for the 7th time.

Here we go.

1. Having proven that the original charging cable came with the Surface box failed to charge, I turned to other USB cables to try my luck; Sony and other unknown manufacturers alike, they didn’t work. So I thought about the higher quality USB cable that I bought for my home stereo system.

2. I drained my Surface 3 by running video until it shut itself off. Then I charged it over night. When fully charged, I drained it again. I used my hi-fi grade USB cable to charge, with adapter connected directly to wall socket that also supplies power to my hi-fi system. I flipped the power plug polar once or twice.

3. After the 3rd full-draining, I left my Surface 3 at the corner for one full day (at least, I guess).

4. In desperation, I even said to it: “Maybe I should let you go and buy a new one that have all the new tricks.”

5. Full-charge. After which, it worked. It now charges when running. It now charges when the adaptor is connected to any other multi-socket and/or wall socket in my little joint.

 

However, it works only when using my hi-fi grade USB cable. The “plugged in but not charging” issue still re-appears whenever I use other regular USB cables; the ones that have black rubber coating. To make sure best connection, my hi-fi USB cable’s micro end is made significantly “tighter” than the regular micro USB cables that come from appliance/PC manufacturers. This observation presents an obvious conclusion: in addition and not limited to driver, firmware, and power module quality issue, we can not rule out the possibility that USB cable quality may be a suspect, or an accomplice at least, to the seemingly ever-transcendent “plugged in but not charging” issue.

 

Surface users sharing this same issue, please don’t feel lonely; this issue is not unique to Surface devices; it can be found on other brands; even premium models from highly respectable manufacturers.

 

I hope my redneck, hillbilly, duct tape style fix can get you out of the same ____ hole that bogged me down.

沖繩未爆彈2016/5/15

沖繩牧港區(Machinato)國道58今日(2016/5/15)上午發現一枚五英吋艦砲未爆彈,緊急排除爆裂物作業已結束。

按照往例,官方除了封鎖現場之外,也…也封鎖了…也很保守地希望別嚇到觀光財神爺。

根據劉選手的研判,這顆未爆彈的典故應該是:

時間:1945年沖繩戰期間4月下旬

地點:現今牧港中央醫院東側鄰國道58處。如果你從那霸自駕或環島沿國道58往北出發,出了那霸後你看到的第一個超大型柏青哥店,差不多就在這附近。

人:最可能相關的是美國陸軍第27師第165步兵團第1營A連或B連。

事由:除了登陸前的預炸之外,也極為可能是為了支援牧港區美軍稱為Item Pocket的戰鬥。要進入Item Pocket,就要先通過牧港29高地(日軍名)及前田高地西端之間的天然隘口。這個隘口附近的國道58路段就是這顆未爆彈處理時的交通封鎖區。

該次戰鬥是沖繩戰裡被歷史遺忘的一段血戰歷史,但因為當時嘉數高地跟接續的前田高地戰鬥的知名度太高,於是一段慘烈的歷史就被忽視了。劉選手的沖繩故事並不會包含Item Pocket,因為該區目前是美軍管制區的金賽基地,無法進入實地探勘。

戰時由各種火砲構成的鐵風暴殘留的未爆彈到現在還沒挖完。

臨時通知

很抱歉"勇氣-我的沖繩故事"沒能在2015年完成連載。

關於大名戰區,我愈發覺得不能只把焦點擺在大名戰區,因為日軍的防禦戰術是矩陣式的,interlocking;扯到A就不能不扯到B,扯到B就非得提到C。也就是說,平面文字章節的線性發展很難提供更全面的看法。但若ABC一起講,那就肯定會造成混亂。因此,劉選手決定大膽採用新的方式:時間軸一致、且互為因果的兩個章一起寫,以時間軸為同步的方式發表。這樣就能讓朋友們比較能從,嗯…軍團長的視野來看"戰線",而不是被限制在以師長的視野來看單一的師級目標。(讀者朋友們升官囉~)

連載了至這麼久,從熱心朋友讀者的回應可知,在關注這連載的朋友是很有概念的,所以應該把故事方向調整為細節披露之外也要多一點戰略記述與分析,方能滿足各界軍武高人。

近期內在章節方面會略有變更。

目前已新增附錄八:沖繩戰主要時序表,以歷史研究習慣的時間軸發展提供一個簡單的懶人包。

Word 2016插入的物件不理你

在Word 2016插入一個圖形,為了版面調整的需求而將物件設定在文字的下層。若要再調整這個圖形,用滑鼠怎麼點它都不理你,實在是煩惱。怎麼辦?

例:下圖黑字是正常打字輸入的文字,藍底白字的圖形被設定放在黑字的後面。從此這個正方形就跟你裝傻。

 

Word_obj

 

第一步:

滑鼠點選左上角「Home」,叫出Ribbon,如下圖:

Word_obj_1

 

第二步:

滑鼠點選右上方「Select」,跳出下拉清單後點選「Select Objects」,如下圖:

Word_obj_3

 

 

第三步:

裝傻的正方形就會理你了,如下圖:
