Question about Sony Walkman MZ-R50 Personal MiniDisc Player

1 Answer

Battery drain The original ion lithium batteries died long ago and i've been using the external battery attachment with the screws on the rare occasions when I still use the MZ-R50, usually for recording purposes. Yesterday I dug it up to go record a live concert and new batteries were drained after 10 minutes recording. It kept giving a low bat message and turning off, each time turning on again(when I slide the rec button) showing the bat lines as 2/3rds, untill it started happening too frequently to try and record anything. I also tried with a friends NiMH bats, the AA type, same effect. What can I do about this? Is there anywhere I can get the original special shaped Lithiums that go inside the player? will it make any difference? Thanks

My pendo wont fully charge, and now it won't come on at all


Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

How do you take apart a ryobi lithium 18v one battery


This applies to Li-ion. NiCd is probably somewhat different.


Unscrew four security screws on the bottom of the battery. If you don't have the right bit you can grind down the center pins in the screw heads and use a T15 bit.


Unscrew the hex-head screw in the center of the protruding post at the top of the battery. It may be non-standard in size but a small metric hex key wrench works if you are gentle. The four corners of the battery cover should be loose now.


There are still two plastic clips holding the top cover to the main unit near the centers of the long dimensions. Gently push a knife blade into the crack between bottom and top to release the clip on each side.


As you lift the top cover off you should push down on the contacts near the top of the post so you don't pull on the attaching wires. Eventually the contacts should pop free and the top cover detaches.


Detach the wiring harness for the status LED from the circuit board. You can now remove the combined circuit board and battery pack from the lower case.


Six screws attach the circuit board to the battery assembly, along with several solder connections, but you probably don't need to go this far. You can now test and possibly replace individual cells.

The battery on my Remington MB70 trimmer is no longer hold a charge. Can the battery be changed to perhaps an Li-ion variety?


The charging system in your trimmer is not designed for lithium ion batteries. Installing a lithium ion battery could cause fire and/or personal injury. You should always use the same type battery that came in the shaver originally
