In my tablet Acer Iconia Tab 8 W1 I can't see the battery status. In the settings the Power option is gray, and I can't set it as "On".

    When plugged in, is power button steady blue?

    Thank you Jack. Unfortunately I can't see any power light. There's a little hole in the top of the computer. Is that the power light?

    Probably not if in the center of the pad bezel. Sounds more like the camera. If lit orange or blue or blinking, pinpoint LEDs should be quite visible. Perhaps if you take it into a closet or darkened room you'll see it.

    Thanks again. The camera is in front of me, but the hole is in the top with the microphone and load connector. I can't see any light even in the dark room.

    With the system and screen turned on, what happens when you pull the plug?

    You don't say which W1 model you have, so I'm going to guess one of the W1-810 models. There isn't a charge indicator light on the W1-810, so that won't help. Are you using the stock charger that came with the unit or a third party charger? Verify the charger puts out at least 2A of 5V on the microUSB port.

    Hi again

     My tablet is Acer Iconia Tab B W1-810, RMN-A 1412. I load the power with other compute’s USB. The battery status was OK before. Why it’s now disappeared?

    With the system and screen turned on, what happens when you disconnect the USB cable from other computer?
