Question about GE 26928GE1 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Battery holds a charge for a short time only

Replaced battery about 2 weeks ago. Charge does not seem to hold for long. Measured base output voltage to phone at approx 10.4 vDC. Is this correct or in range? Measured battery voltage after attempted recharge is approx 2.3 vDC. Would this be symptomatic of inadequate charge time - 12 hours?

My makita battery is not taking a charge is it the base or the battery


The most easiest way to be sure is using multimeter. 25290419-3h5pkc2unruv115jj1tsixdi-2-0.jpg
Set your multimeter to highest dc volt. All chargers have output voltage information written on it (Must be written as "output" value or "sec"). Measure charger's output pins (which connects to battery) and be sure measured value matches with output voltage value written on charger label. If it doesn't match each other, buy a new charger and proceed with below part.

Discharge your battery. Once you discharge battery; be sure that there is no charge at all. Charge battery for 15 min. Measure battery power with multimeter again. If there is no charge at your battery, it is dead and you need another battery.

Invacare battery charger 24 volts no output if not connected to battery?


If the battery has stood for two years with out a charge it will no longer be able to hold a charge renew it . most modern chargers need to detect battery voltage before they will charge .

Will not hold charge and voltage gage is not working


Is the alternator putting out a charging current when running? Measured at alternator then at battery. If no at alternator, replace alternator if high mileage, if low mileage replace regulator. The part the harness plugs into.

If yes at alternator and no at battery, check for continuity across ammeter and check the voltmeter for a short. The ammeter should read essentially zero ohms and the voltmeter should read about 15,000 to 40,000 ohms when measured with an analog ohm meter.

If those check okay, check for a wiring fault or a blown fuse on the power distribution block or a broken fusible link. Fusible links can be checked by gentle tension on them, those that have failed will pull apart.

Mower runs great, problem is battery goes dead, its a new battery, i recharged it, measured the voltage at 13.41, started it, it measured 14.47 volts then drops a few decimals every minute like 14.42 after...


Try disconnecting the battery and note if the voltage drops.
If it does, the battery is not holding a charge.
If it keeps its voltage, the problem lies in a minor short in the mower.
You have to determine which item has the problem first.

Honda 2004 Sabre will not charge the battery


Hi, Rhall20448 before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Battery Test:
The battery needs to be a fully charged and load tested to ensure proper readings, connections need to be clean and tight. If you are not working with a fully charged and functional battery, all other voltage tests will be incorrect. Standing battery Voltage should be 12.5-13.2 DCV.
2. Charging System Voltage Test:
Start motorcycle, measure DC volts across the battery terminals you should have a reading of approximately 13.2-15 DC Volts.
3. Connections and wires:
Inspect the regulator stator plug, and check the battery terminals for connection corrosion. If everything seems to be in order, move on to number 4 below to determine if there's a failed component.
4. Stator Checks/Rotor Check: Each of the following tests isolates the Stator & Rotor. If AC output and resistance test fail and stator test passes then the rotor is at fault (Pull Primary covers and inspect rotor for damage).
5. AC Output Check:
Unplug the regulator plug from the stator start motorcycle and change Voltmeter to AC volts. Probe both stator wires with your meter lead. The motorcycle should be putting out approximately 18-20 ACV per 1,000 rpm. Reading will vary depending on system, check service manual specification
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
32 amp system produces about 16-20 VAC per 1,000 rpm
45 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
Stator Resistance Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale. Probe each stator wires with meter leads and check resistance on the meter.
Resistance should be in the range of 0.1-0.5 Ohms. Reading will vary depending on the system, check the service manual for specifications.
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 0.2 to 0.4 ohms
32 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
45 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
5. Stator Ground Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale.
Probe each stator wire with your positive lead on the multimeter and the negative to ground.
There should be no continuity to ground on either wire.
If there is continuity your stator is shorted to ground and must be replaced.
6. Regulator Test:
Each of the following tests isolates the regulator only, so if any of these tests fail, the regulator is at fault.
Identifying Wires:
Battery Charge Lead- Wire going from regulator to battery positive.
AC output leads- Wires coming from the Stator to the regulator.
Ground- Wire from Regulator to ground or regulator may be grounded via the physical bolting to chassis.
Regulator Ground Test: Ensure the regulator body is grounded or grounding wire is fastened tightly to a good ground (you should verify this by checking continuity from regulator body to chassis ground).
Fwd/Reverse Bias Test/Diode Test:
This check is testing the Diode function to ensure it is regulating the AC current for the stator into DC Current.
Switch multimeter to Diode Scale.
Place your Multimeter positive lead on each AC output wire.
Place your multimeter negative lead on the battery Charge wire.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the AC output wires and the Positive lead on the Battery Charge Wire. The reading should be Infinite. With your meter on the same setting, place your multimeter positive lead on the regulator ground wire or to the regulator directly, and then place your meter negative lead on the AC output leads.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the regulator ground and the Positive lead on the AC output wires. The reading should be Infinite.
Note: Below is a table to show the readings:
Positive Lead Negative Lead Reading
AC output 1 Battery charge lead Voltage
AC output 2 Battery Charge Lead Voltage
Battery charge lead AC output 1 ?
Battery charge lead AC output 2 ?
Ground AC output 1 Voltage
Ground AC output 2 Voltage
AC output 1 Ground ?
AC output 2 Ground ?

I replaced the battery 3 weeks ago and everything has been fine. My wife drove around everywhere on Friday. She did not drive the van yesterday. It is now Sunday night. My wife went out ot start her van...


Your alternator is going bad. It should only put out 13-14 volts and therefore is overcharging your battery. This causes your battery to get a dead cell. If you replace the alternator and battery, make sure you check the cables for any shorts.
