There is no setting to change, Thinkpad batteries work and charge automatically.

If the battery does not work, either the battery is faulty, or there is a fault in the battery charger contacts , inside the battery slot.

the most likely is a defective battery.

Go back to the shop and ask to test the battery on a different thinkpad, if battery works, then there is a bad contact in laptop battery slot. If it doesn't, then the seller must replace the battery.

SOURCE: batterie

There is nothing to change , should start charging automaticlly.....I would recommend installing the new battery , plugging in the laptop and keeping it off....see if that gets it charged up. It could be that it is just fully drained.

Also , did you have problems with charging with your last battery? It could be possible that your charger is shot , thats why none of the batterie's charged.

My controller won't turn on. There's something that sounds like it's rattling in it, but it's brand new, out of the package literally 5 minutes ago.


If you hear rattling, something has probably come off on the inside. Must be battery connections since everything worked except powering on. If you bought it from ebay, contact the seller right away and have it replaced. If you bought it locally you can easily get a replacement.

Dont open it or you risk not getting a replacement.

Where that battery came from? Check one more time that this battery has the same type that previous one; reinsert battery; disconnect charger from the phone and try again. If none happens try to reinsert old one - and that one works bring battery back to seller and ask for replacement.

If polarity is OK in battery section, then I think you have faulty mouse. Unless user manual states otherwise, I would return to seller for replacement.

I bought a refurbished lg chocolate2. when i try to charge it, it says "use genuine batter, power off"


Sounds like the OEM battery has an internal sensor to check for damage. And the phone has software to check. If the battery lacks the sensor or actually has damage or changes been done, the phone lets you know.

Using a non-OEM battery shouldn't be a problem if you don't care about the protective circuitry the OEM battery comes with. If the non-OEM battery is advertised an an exact replacement for your original, then you have an issue with the seller - he cheated you, not the phone supplier.

Canon XSi not powering up


if it has a view finder make sure in the settings that the image is set to show up on the LCD screen also make sure the batteries have a FULL charge which means at least 8 hours of uninterrupted charging before use.

My guess is that with most nice digi cams it is set to not show the image in the LCD viewfinder but rather the actual real time with your eye view finder. look around the menu if you can and see what you can change as far as view finding and if i didn't help please specify the problem a little more and i will be glad to do whatever i can to help.

I have a Olympus C8080 digital camera that won't start up? It has a brand new battery, which I purchased because the old battery was over 4 years old, and because it took a charge in about 5 minutes, but...


Are you using a genuine Olympus BLM-1 or a cheap "compatible" battery. It's possible that the original fault was caused by a worn out battery, but if you've bought a cheap compatible from places like eBay or Amazon then they're often very poor quality and frequently not of the stated charge capacity. Sometimes they're not even lithium batteries so your charger and camera won't work properly with them They're often so cheap that there is no effective quality control so your new battery may well be a faulty one. There is no way that the new battery would have been fully charged after just eight minutes: although they're usually supplied with a partial charge it's nowhere near a full charge.

Another possibility is that your Olympus BCM-2 charger is faulty.

Worst of all, you may simply have been sold a pup. If the eBay seller described the camera as being in good working order then I suggest you ask for a refund and return the camera. Although private sales are "as seen" they also have to meet the sellers description. If the seller won't play ball then you may be able to claim PayPal buyer protection if you used it to pay the seller.

Your camera is a five year old model now and way outside the warranty, in the UK perfectly good used examples sell for around £125 and this is likely to be less than the likely cost of any repairs if you send it to Olympus. You'll need to carefully weigh up what you've paid so far, what you're likely to have to additionally buy just to diagnose the fault correctly and what you can get if you just cut your losses and sell the camera as is.
