sounds like the device itself is having an issue. possibly the charging port is damaged or dirty

try cleaning the contacts on the device itself. a cotton swab with a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol should do the trick (if its just dirty not damaged)

you may need a better device maybe. after all the 7290 is too out of date maybe,and the hardware should not be in good conditions by now
