Battery not recharging

Is there any where I can obtain a new battery for this model. I live in the Uk and i think this model has not been released over here. Can the battery be replaced or is it an integral part of the machine. Number on the battery is IA1W922E2 Thanks

My battery will not recharge anymore. It's 8 years old but hasn't been used in 7. Is there anyway to revive the battery or can you get a replacement?

Hi, once a battery in such a device has run down it is usually necessary to replace it unfortunately. The various types of rechargeable batteries have different charging characteristics, the old ni-cads are better in some ways than li-ion units but they all have a fairly finite life span. They can be obtained and replaced if you can access the unit(s) .....Ebay might be able to help with replacements. Also...Radioshack in the US and Maplin in the UK may be able to assist

How cfan I obtain user guide for Grundig SCD88 player

These models are out of production and also redundant. It is possible that the battery also had gone weak if the set does not power on, otherwise all what is needed is to get in touch with the nearest Grundig support center.

My sansa wouldn't recharge - thought the battery was dead - replaced it - it worked for a couple of hours, then was dead again and wouldn't take a charge. Think it's fixable?

slide the switch in the on position and hold for 20 seconds , release and then flick the switch to on position and it should start.
This will happen anytime the battery runs down.

Model#1825 it wont charge or turn on

Hello :

It seems that the battery is dead [ can't be recharged anymore ] . You need new battery . If you replaced the battery with new one and the device still can't be recharged , then I recommend you to take your player to the service .
You may also check the power transformer or power cord .

good luck .
