Needs a new circuit board. Replace the board, or sell it online somewhere "as-is".

My AceAcer aspire 7720z only charges when turned off but when turn off without the battery thus using only the adapter, it shows the orange light and goes on within 10 - 15 sec. Can someone help me plsssdd


Has it always only charged with the battery when it is closed, because that is very unusual. Most likely your li-on battery is dead or only holding a minimum charge. Most older laptops will not run without the battery or if the battery is dead. if the battery is not good it will not power up. You need a new battery, or get that one rebuilt at batteries plus or sonewhere.

Can you use 18v lithium battery in old 18v drill


Yes you can. On tools, 18 volts is 18 volts. Tools don't 'know' how the power is being created, either by Ni-Cad or Li-Ion means. Chargers are totally different. Most Li-Ion chargers can charge older Ni-Cad and some Ni-MH batteries but older Ni-Cad chargers will charge Li-Ion battery untill they overheat and sometimes start on fire because older chargers can't detect when the Li-Ion batteries are full.

Are all the Lithium batteries working like this. Mine work for a short time then stop dead. Wait a while then they will work again. Really a pain when you are working trying to do somthing and have to run...


I use the Ryobi Li-Ion tools the L-I batteries will cut off when they get to a low charge level this is to protect the batteries Li-Ion batteries life span is shortened when fullt discharged so when the tool suddenly stops put the battery on charge,also if the battery has a charge indicator light for a more accurite idea of the charge (green is charged,red discharged) hold the test button on then run the tool the light may go from green to red if it does that shows the the charge is about depleted if the light stays green you have a little run time left.

I recently puchased an EGET MO-H04CD portable oxygen concentrator and I am having problems charging the Lithium batteries that were supplied with the unit. There are no instructions on how long you have to...


Red light normally means that the battery needs charging. The green flashing light can mean the battery is charging or has charged, and the same with the solid green light. Green in this case is good.

Charge the unit overnight and see what the indicator state is. It should not take more than 8 hours of charging for a Li-ion battery. Once you know what the full state light looks at, then you can tell what the charging indicator looks like.

In all cases, ensure you are using the proper charger with the unit.

I have a 18v battery charger for my great neck drill but the red light insant lighting up when I go to charge my my battery, but the green one is lit up.


Try jump starting the battery. Li Ion batteries often have smart chargers if the battery gets to low the charger doesnt recognise it. If yo have a spare battery fully charge it ant then conect + to + and - to - with wire ( may take two people) kep them connected for 2 mins or so then try in the charger.

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700


There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, I replaced the li-ion battery with a NiMh AAA battery pack, soldered in the board that was on the old battery and used it for a week before the battery pack needed...


Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down.
WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire!
Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

Camera (DMC-FZ10) got wet in a rain storm. Now


I suspect that water has damaged the electronics board in the camera. Unfortunately this is not a waterproof camera. Water will corrode the electronic components and eventually ruin the whole camera,
My suggestion is to claim it on insurance as they wilol repair or replace it on Home insurance. No one puts a camera in water intentionally unless its an underwater camea, so its considered an accident
