Chuwi Labook 14.1 Power Issue

I bought my Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 three days ago. On the first day, everything ran well, browsing and watching videos was great.
However on the second day, i was unable to turn on the lapbook. When the power cable was plugged in for charging. the red
charging indicator light did not light up. Despite holding down the power key, i was still unable to get it to power on. The next day,
I was able to power it on and when i plugged in the charging cable, the light showed purple instead of red (not blue, but purple).
After running for around 10 minutes, it switched off by itself and would not power on anymore. I had to wait for a very long time
(many hours) before it would power on again, only to face the same issue. Now it won't even power on. Plugging in the charging cable
does not charge the lapbook and the indicator light doesn't light up anymore. PLEASE HELP!!! I've tried to reach out to the seller but
he is very unresponsive, espacially when i brought up the problem of paying for shipping fees for a replacement.

I desperately need help as i absolutely love this lapbook. Can someone give me directions?

Do you know which version of the lapbook you have? Currently, there seems to be 3 variants, so the internals are a bit different for each variant.

From your description, it seems like a case of bad batteries or charging circuit. If that's the case, your only hope is to ask for a replacement. Which seller did you get from?

Right now the laptop cannot be turned on anymore at all. Even with the charger being plugged in, no indicator light shows.

Does anyone have any experience with Usually when the product is under warranty do they bear the shipping cost?

no they wont pay shipping, no they wont fix it basically your on your own. I eat my own hat if this statement is incorrect.

My suggestion is to try another charger.
