Battery and or charger

I did a short d. test and found an error measage 1000-0146. battery light blinks fast and will not run off battery.

help!

Hi - I'm having the same problem with charger / battery (not sure which one is the problem). Laptop will not run off battery, because battery won't charge (always shows 0%), but indicates that it is "charging". The laptop will shut down suddenly after varying amounts of time. Battery icon will flash a few second before laptop shuts down. Sometimes if I jiggle the AC adaptor connection to the laptop when the battery icon starts flashing I can get it to continue working.

Hi you have mentioned

"Sometimes if I jiggle the AC adapter connection to the laptop when the battery icon starts flashing I can get it to continue working."

Looks like you have a lose jack on your notebook or the adapter itself....try to shake the connections when fitted to the notebook and check weather its the adapter or the note book jack....

If you dont have experience opening your notebook and soldering or soldering your adaptor end i suggest you take it to repair center

keep me posted

Cheers!

Try removing the battery and see if the laptop works with the AC adaptor. If not either the AC adaptor is bad or the motherboard is defective.
If your battery LED flashes (yellow or Amber) or is solid Yellow or Amber color, this usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.
As for the error message “failed DST short test 1000-0146”, this is flagging an error on your hard disk drive. This could be caused by a bad hard drive or just needs to be reformatted.

Dewalt de0245


These de0245 chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise with battery packs which would be indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate.

If this occurs, re-insert battery pack. If problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the charger is OK. If the new battery charges correctly, then the original pack is defective and should be returned to a service centre for recycling.

If the new battery pack gives the same trouble indication as the original, have the charger tested at an Authorised Service Centre.

Red light flashing on charger


A red light indicates the charger is charging the battery, an amber light means it has switched from fast rate charging to trickle to keep the battery topped off, and green would mean the battery is completely charged. But don't be fooled waiting for green, many times the charger will only be on green for a moment before changing to amber and keeping the battery topped off.

Flashing can be a sign of a problem on some chargers.

A rapid flashing red can on some chargers indicate a bad or shorted battery, or a bad battery contact in the charger itself. If in question, try a different battery on the charger or compare with another charger to determine if the blinking is normal.

Best regards.

DW911 charge light flashes when no there is no battery in radio


Sometimes when a battery is too low it takes a while for it to initialize in a charger and begin to charge. Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and put it back on the charger. Leave it on the charger despite the blinking light. Leave it on the charger for several hours and see if the flash stops and it becomes a constant light indicating normal charging. If this does not work, you may have a short in the battery or in the charger itself. Try another known good battery in the charger and see if you have the same problem. If so the charger has an issue.
Best regards.

I have new batteries and charger but batteries will not charge


If your battery is totally flat some chargers see this as connecting to a short and will not charge. If the battery has a charge run it down some, my batteries often don't take much of a charge if any. Does the charger light up.Does the charger have any fuses on its out put wiring. Open the charger up, do you see fuses. When the charger is on do you see any blinking lights. If you get a blinking yellow light when hooked to a battery there is something wrong with the battery. Hope this helps

Hi, i have asus eee pc net book, what was the issue is...... when ever i try to charge my netbook when netbook is truned on, the adopter light is blinking. when the netbook is truned off its chargeing...


When the adopter light is blinking. when the net-book is turned off means that is charging, but if the light remains for a lobg period of time there is something wrong with the battery or the charger.

Here is small tool Imtec Battery Mark designed to test the battery laptop life. You can run laptop battery test in two modes (fast and normal) and Imtec Battery Mark will provide full assessment of your Laptop battery at the end of test.

The dead battery charger means the charger can not work : can not charge the laptop battery or can not run the laptop. When our laptop battery can not charge, we must check the battery and charger state. Now let me list the steps of test our battery and charger below.

Make sure the powerbook g4 battery charger cable is plugged in and the output is to power.

Look closely at the battery. Is there corrosion or leakage? If so, replace the inspiron 6400 battery immediately.

Test the charger. For DC chargers, a voltmeter set at 25 VDC and touch the contacts with the probes. The meter should read about more than 1 V Evaluation of the shipper. If the reading is zero, change battery catheters.

Testing a AC charger through the establishment of a voltmeter to 25 VAC. Tap the contact probes. The transformer in the charger is bad if you get no reading.

Check contacts. These are strips of metal or points in the appliance and charging cradle. With the batetry charger unplugged, clean with a cotton swab. Use a fine emery board to remove visible corrosion.

My charge light is blinking fast but not chargeing


First off, clean the battery and charger contacts on both the battery, charger and on the headset (you can use a qtip and alcohol). However, this sounds like the battery may not be holding the charge, or is partially shorted. Try replacing it and see if that fixes it.

Problem charging


If you are referring to a flashing yellow light on the charging base, this is an error code. Either the 1) battery is bad, 2) not making good contact in the charger, or 3) very very low on charge. The solution for this set of problems is as follows: 1) have the company you purchased them from replace them, 2) clean your contacts with a pencil eraser, 3) leave the battery on the charger with the yellow light flashing for an hour or two. If the battery is just very low on a charge, it will come back to life and the light will change to be constant. If the battery is bad or shorted out, the light will continue to flash and you will need to get with the vendor you purchased the batteries from.

Other things which come to mind are compatibility issues such as you are using a different battery chemistry than you had before. NiCd batteries can charge on either of the two chargers available for the P110 (slow rate or fast rate). However, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries require a fast rate charger.

If you are referring to a yellow blinking light on the radio while it is in the charger. You need to shut your radio off. Radios should always be turned off when charging. If the radio is left on you will never have a full charge. Also, if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is turned on, while on a charger, you can cause damage to the radio.

FYI: There is no light to show "out of range" on the radio, unless you are possibly using a trunking or repeater system. A blinking light on your radio indicates the radio is turned on and/or there is traffic on your frequency. Your charger base light can be red, yellow or green. This indicates the charge cycle status. Flashing most always means some type of error.

Best regards
