Thanks,
I hv tried to charge it from the outlet via the same cord which is supplied with the player & even with the laptop, but the battery is getting hot as it during the charging but the player doesn't start.
Before the problem occured the battery had a quite good battery life. so I don't think that battery has got suddenly problem.

Do you charge it from an outlet of via usb cord? If from an outlet, the charger just might not work anymore, but the usb cord that you use to put media on the mp3 player will charge it also.

Why will my samsung yp-z3 not switch on?


Sometimes if the battery is discharged extremely it takes 10 to 30 minutes to charge up to a level at which the device can start up. In worst cases the battery can become dead in such a way that it can never be charged up any more. A general thumb rule I suggest you to follow, is: try not to keep li-ion batteries fully discharged for long time as this eventually kills them.

Computers provide low charging amperage, if you can connect your player to a wall socket usb adaptor if you have one. It may charge and turn on faster.

How To Extend Your Laptop's Battery Life


Hi... This is Vikas Sharma From M/s Computer Solutions, Patiala - Punjab, India

Im Going to give you one good advice that if you want to make your laptops battery life batter and want that your battery should run and give proper backup then use the battery as much as possible and when laptop shown the message that battry low or less than 5% then charge it back full. do it atleast once in a week.

Acctually the purpose is that when you charge and discharge the battery full all the cells used and charged and discharged. when you charge your battery when it is having i.e. 40% or 30% etc. charging to full and then you use the battery upto i.e. 40% and again you charge it then the remaining 40% cells are not charged and discharged then they become useless and again and again this process dead the cells that are not in charging and discharging position. This is the one big reason for battery problem.

so I suggest that charge and discharge the battery for better results.

Thanks Take Care

The battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, I have a Samsung R1 mp3 player. The battery had completely run out so I put it on charge and it starts up with the samsung screen then it goes onto the R1 on the screen but it freezes after that! I...


Some batteries never recover from an over discharge condition. When you connect it for charging it will show recharging indication but won't soak up any charge. Only way out is to replace the battery especially if its more than 2 year old when you over discharged it.Over discharging is when your battery voltage drops below 30% of its full voltage.

I bought Transcend MP860 last month. when i start charging thru PC it shows the message charging error insufficient voltage.When I finish charging it fully until it displays the message and start playing...


This is a common problem with these players (first link). My MP860 failed in this way (insufficient voltage etc message)
I made a rig with laboratory PSU (several amp output) connected to USB socket and I know that that the problem has nothing to do with voltage (voltage was stable 5V - tested also higher up to 5.5V)
For a while a trick with holding the volume up button worked for me. (see second link) But once I discharged the battery to a too low level and the trick did not work anymore.
My conclusion is that that message indicates Li-ion battery degradation and charger circuit/FW declines to charge it showing misleading message. (battery made by Foxlink)
I tore my the player open and rigged charge circuit and get it working again. Photo: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5063/5683361395_d59bef8142_b.jpg
Few suggestions: 1. Never allow the battery to be fully discharged. Charge at any opportunity you have. 2. Once you get the Insufficient input voltage message try trick with holding volume adjustment. 3. If 1., 2. failed rip it open and make charging circuit or replace battery. 4. Do not buy Transcend MP3 players. (?)

Battery will "fully" charge and then only run for 20 - 30 minutes of use then be discharged. Have fully discharged and re-charged to no avail. My other battery will run for 2-3 hours of use.


Hi Fred,

I have several 18v tool sets and for the most part I'm quite satisfied with their performance. I currently use Bosch and Ryobi.

When used with the drill, a battery can last me the whole day. On the other hand, the sawzall will eat them up pretty quick.

The thing I've found common to all brands is that it is absolutely crucial to make sure the batteries are fully charged before they get used for the first time. That first full charge seems to set the bar for subsequent charges for the rest of the batteries life.

I too, have tried the discharge/recharge thing. No help. I can only suggest a new battery and letting get all it can take from the charger the first time out of the box.

Since I've been doing that, I rarely even think to bring my charger to job sites, there's that much of a difference in performance.

Hope this helps you out.

Best regards,
Mike

My battery swell


Hi, Battery is calculated in Cycles and One Cycle is One charging & discharging. In ur case probly u might have used ur 300 Cycles. Most of the people do a mistake of keeping charging for whole of Night but when u talk about the cell phone if u keep in charging for the whole night unnessary Cycles are getting wasted. Mobile charge has a funda like it charges and over a time automatically it discharges as well. so don't keep it in Over night charging. U need to replace the battery. Else u will not get a perfect back up. Madhu AVN
