    I've been having issues with my SP and the charger. It doesn't seem to be recognizing that the charger is connected.

    I had this happen once before, I swapped chargers with a friend who also has a SP and my SP recognised his charger, strangely his SP recognised MY charger. Given that we are outside of the US and a trip down to the Microsoft store isn't an option, we swapped chargers and he has reported no problems.

    Today I started to have the same issue again. Both times seem to have happened after the battery was run down to zero so I'm not sure if that's a factor. I've left it to charge to see if it does actually charge the battery despite it not seeing the charger.

    Like I said, I'm outside of the US or Europe and a quick trip down to the MS store for a warranty return isn't easily available. Has any one else had this problem?

    If you plug in the charger with the cable facing down try it facing up. Worth a shot.

    tried that, clearly it's charging very slowly (about 3 days to reach full charge) looking for ideas...

    Changed the charger back to my original charger and it's charging happily again!

    I'm stumped.

    My original charger has now come back home...….
