Good battery installed, but no power

I just got this unit. It works fine on AC adapter, and with accessory AA battery pack, but I have no power at all with correctly installed good Sony NH-14WM battery!? I tried cleaning using contact cleaner on a cotton swab but still nothing. Any help? Thanks.

    Have exact same problem. Sony VGN-CR309E works fine without battery installed but if I put any battery in, I get no power to the notebook. I even replaced the battery with a new one and get the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi- I think you might have a defective battery, or a problem with the battery compartment inside the case if you don't show a charge when the set is plugged into the AC adapter. I do repairs on minidisc recorders so if you would like further information, email me at: masondixon@netzero.com.

I need instructions for my timex clock


Hello
Here are the instructions for your clock-radio.

Installation

1* Remove unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing

materials in case unit needs to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the

materials, please dispose of them properly.

2* Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight,

and away from sources of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, or magnetic fields.

3* After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the

AC cord into an outlet.

"Sure Alarm" Battery Backup Installation

It is strongly recommended that 2 "AA" batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below,

in order to activate this product's "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup feature. (The model should

come with two batteries already installed.) In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected

or a power failure or other interruption occurs, the "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup will maintain

clock and alarm settings for the life of the battery, ensuring that the alarm (buzzer only) will

sound at the set time. During any interruptions the time and alarm settings will be saved

and automatically restored when AC power is again active.

1* Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery

compartment door.

2. Install 2 "AA" batteries (alkaline is recommended for

longer life), while making sure that the + and - ends

match up with those inside the battery compartment.

3* Slide the battery compartment door back on, making

sure the door locks into place, and gently return the
unit to its upright position.

I am having toshiba laptop . i can't charge the laptop while working . please help as soon as possible.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

I get no power when using fresh AA batteries or charged (Ni-MH batteries). Camera works fine when using AC power adapter.


Hi,

Please make sure that you're using the LR6 AA sized batteries and also the terminals of the batteries are correctly inserted. Also make sure that the terminals of the battery compartment is clean without any obstacles or dirt. Also, try power reset and check if it helps.
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
If the issue persists, try the factory resetting. SETUP MENU-->RESET ALL--> OK
This should resolve the issue.
Thanks for using FixYa.

It works good on battery but when AC adaptor is plug in the laptop cuts out and restart by itself.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.

If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

My toshiba satellite L300 has no power


Please follow these steps VERY CAREFULLY:

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

Power supply for Olympus fe-130


(In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be used. Choose the power source best suited to the situation.
AA alkaline batteries/ Oxyride batteries
The number of pictures that you can take may vary considerably depending on the
battery manufacturer and shooting conditions.
AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable batteries)
Olympus NiMH batteries are rechargeable and economical. For details, refer to the instruction manual for your charger.
(Lithium battery packs (CR-V3) and AA manganese (zinc-carbon) batteries
cannot be used.
(Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used.
(Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below causing
batteries to become exhausted quickly.
• The zoom is used repeatedly.
• The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus.
• The monitor is left on for an extended period of time.
• The camera is connected to a computer or printer.
(The battery life varies greatly depending on the type of battery, manufacturer,
shooting conditions, etc. Because of this, there may be cases where the camera
turns itself off without displaying the battery level warning, or displays the battery
level warning sooner than usual.

The camera also has an optional accessory of an AC adapter that can be used as an alternative power source. It is model number E-7AU.
An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming tasks such as image downloads to
a computer or when running a slideshow for a long period of time.
To use the AC adapter with this camera, the optional multi-adapter (CB-MA1) is
necessary. Do not use any other AC adapter with this camera.
Note
• Do not remove or load the battery or connect or disconnect the AC adapter or
multi-adapter while the camera is on or the camera is connected to the other
equipment. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.
• The AC adapter can be used within the range of AC 100 V to AC 240 V (50/60
Hz). When using the shape of abroad, you may need a plug adapter to convert
the plug to match the AC wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop
or travel agent.
• Do not use travel voltage converters as they could damage the AC adapter.

Cant charge battery pack for wii fit balance board


You may want to send an email to customer.services@gem.co.uk. In the meantime, try keeping it plugged into the USB port for at least an hour, or perhaps overnight. See if the light stops flashing and stays on. Then try plugging it back into the Wii Fit unit.

My personal suggestion is to return the charger and battery and buy a 15-minute charger and four more NiMH AA batteries than you need for all of your accessories. Not only are AA batteries compatible with all your accessories, but you won't be out a gizmo while it's needing to be charged.

Good luck!

Sort of a solution. You can buy a 4 cell AA battery pack and coax connector from Radio Shack, fill it with rechargeables. Plug it into the port for the AC power. Good for about one hour.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery
