My battery will not charge fully or sometimes will not charge at all. It always gives an indication that it is indeed charging when plugged in. My wife has an identical phone her phone will always charge my battery fully, if swapped into her phone.
Whenever you first purchase a device you must charge the phone fully otherwise if you charge it partially an then use it it will never charge good. You may need new battery see if youe warranty covers it \. If you are within 30 days of purchase you can exchange it at no cost!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

A fully charged that is only about 12V indicates a a problem with the battery - dead / shorted cells, etc. You can always remove the battery and have it tested at Autozone or similar auto parts stores if you're unsure. From the info you've provided - my guess is that the battery is "done"
From what you describe and assuming the new battery was "new", I'd say you have an internal short which is draining the battery over a short period of time. I'd also investigate the accuracy of the battery charge indicator.

I'm assuming you gave the battery a "commissioning charge" when you bought and used it? If not, this is something you should do with all new LI batteries. This bit is reproduced from a website that sells batteries for the Toshiba satellite series:
"2. The new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack needs to be circled
(fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its
3. Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery will undergo
self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it
should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry
and clean place.
4. It is normal if the new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery
gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special
attention if the battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate
there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device.
Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
5. To maintain the optimum performance of Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
6. New batteries are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your
electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15
minutes when Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack is being charged
for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let
it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging
procedure. Sometimes, the new Satellite a205-s4777 battery will
suddenly refuse to be charged. If this happens, a suggested solution is
trying to remove the battery from the device and insert it again. "
Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the
fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this
time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.
Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone: #1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY
night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active,
which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer
chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect
the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully
charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not
damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the
battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you
fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating
your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure
your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily
remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the
iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a
cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan.
The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you
can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly
rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure
your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger. The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A Thanks!
Sorry but it sounds like weak batteries. I would replace both batteries and after installation fully charge before use. Then ask Mom to use the chair more each day so you can charge them overnight each day for the next 20 days. It will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you can get her to use it more and charge it overnite and always put it up at full charge the batteries should last 2-3 years Hope this helps
Wez Thats a normal indication of a full charge. The battery level indicator will go down as you use the scooter. Always charge the scooter overnite if you use it a good bit during the day. With new batteries it will take 8-10 charging to break them in and operating at 100%. Always store fully charged and if not used alot charge once a week after you have charged the batteries 8-10 times
First, even a fully charged battery may not be working right - VERY common. Does the camera do this on two batteries, one old and one much newer? (I say this because lithium batteries are good for about 500 charges - if you are over this, the batteries will always read weak...) A service shop can test the camera and see if the battery is reading correctly. A service shop may allow you to try the SHOP's good battery in your camera and see if it reads right. If OK, you need a new battery.
The service shop can reload the operating data into your camera - I have fixed them this way myself. If not, the circuit board that handles charging and batteries may run you $275 plus labour. (The board is not repairable)
You are charging. The meter corresponds to the level of charge in the battery. Try setting to 10 A for 4 hours, battery should be half-way up. To determine if battery id dead.. leave battery off charger once it is fully charged...test with a voltmeter after 10 min.....battery should still be above 12v...after1 hour it should still be above 12v...if not battery is spent.
First remove the SD card in case it is defective itself causing the camera to act funny. Next, your symptoms are indicative of a bad, not fully charged, or intermittent battery contact with camera's contacts.
Clean batt contacts using a clean pencil erasure.
If this doesn't work, measure a fully charged battery's voltage on the battery pos(+) and neg(-) terminals. It should be 4VDC. If less than 3.8, I would be suspicious it is not taking a full charge.
New batteries on ebay are cheap, and would not be a loss since you can always use backup batteries if you get another TZ camera. Or, you could just sell your camera to a repairman in an ebay auction, keeping your batteries and accessories, and buying a used working one with accessories cheap.
