Good morning and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your VAX Blade 4.

This indicates either the charger is faulty and/or battery will need replacement.

You may try this:

Please leave it unplugged for few minutes.

Then press and hold the ON button; whilst holding the ON button put the charger back on and let go the button after around 20 seconds.

See if it works, if the issue is still there, I am afraid the battery pack and/or charger will need replacement.

Usually the battery lasts for around 3-4 years.

Alternatively, you may call VAX at 0330(###) ###-####to order the part or to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

It was not a few minutes, it was nearly two hours. It was to be a transfered call which failed.
I phoned Vax myself, my battery was faulty and a new battery is in transit. In actual fact your Company did nothing for me.
RegardsGina Poole

The answer was provided to you and then a call was made as well, anyhow glad the battery is in transit.

You're welcome and Good Luck.

Have a wonderful day.
