Damage due to reversed polarity

Good day!

The battery pack for my JVC handycam model is already obsolete (you can't find one in any shops) that's why I improvised a power supply for it.

I used a 7.2V battery pack (same specifications with the original one) but unfortunately I connected it to the handycam in reverse polarity.

The handycam won't turn on. I read several articles about damage due to reversed polarity, and they mentioned about a diode-fuse mechanism that prevents total damage to the equipment. Is there any way I can repair it?

L thought the diode was to prevent the damage, not to repair it

Battery charged wrong with neg on pos and pos on neg due to walmart putting red cover on neg side of battery. battery changed polarity... so when putting on cables must have damaged car. starter cranked...


Once a battery flips polarity, it's done. You need a new battery.

It's also likely that the starter was running backwards, which probably didn't cause any mechanical damage, but when you try to start it again, pay attention to any weird noises.

Hope that helps.

Reverse polarity


Hi Anonymous, drain battery completly buy hooking it up a headlight. It may take a few days but it is the only way, make sure battery has 0.0000 volts before hooking it back up to a trickle or 1 amp charge rate. Good luck

I accidently installed the battery reverse polarity,momentarily only. Now installed correctly and no power at all. Suspect fuse? I can't find the 30Amp fuse. I have located the spare one and the 10amp...


Look at the end of the red cable coming from the battery. There will be a metal strip bolted to a plastic block. That is the main fuse. If it's not there it will be in the plug that goes on the starter relay.
Sometime when reversing polarity on the bike you can damage the engine management system. Check everything carefully. Hope you didn't. good luck.

I installed replacement batteries with the polarity reversed. Since then unit does not display the Contact file, but all other functions (activities, data files, etc.) seem unimpaired. Any ideas? I...


Hi, well the reason this has happened is that these contacts are stored in battery backed up NVRAM, now this RAM is very sensitive to polarity reversal, and also due to the way it works, doesn't have polarity reversal protection, on that circuit. So when you reversed those batteries even though the reverse polarity protection saved the Unit as a whole, the NVRAM would have been destroyed or wiped at best. These is no real way of replacing this NVRAM, I guess you could send it back to the factory though and ask for a "Quote" with view to the repair.

I have a Sangean ATS 818cs portable radio but no 6v lead input


Yes you can use any 6 volt DC for your radio but the most IMPORTANT thing to remember is to connect the terminals in the correct direcction. First of all you can solder a red wire from the positve terminal of the battery and a black wire from the negative terminal of the battery. This must be connected to the source of your 6 volt battery.You can buy a good DC jack socket female to be fitted into the vacant spot of your radio and use a male jack to supply the DC. Only be carefully to see the polarity. To avoid any reversing of polarity use can even connect a diode in the forwarrd bias towards the positve terminal. This will prevent any wrong connection of polarity to damage your set. Helpful? Good day

Is the Advueu V800XPT-2s tablet pc obsolete? If


This is an obsolete tablet PC. It also goes under the model number EZ30 by Elitegroup. Two batteries were available, however neither is currently available. If you have the skills, you can rebuild your existing 3 cell pack with new LiIon cells. Use extreme care if you do, and make absolutely sure that you replace all the mechanical and electrical protection otherwise the pack may present a fire hazard. Also, there was an extended battery made for this model (11.1V 4400mAHr). The model number for the battery is 822V80010002. Good luck finding one though. I have seen a picture of only one, and the manufacturer of the battery is out of business. Also if you need support for this unit, it is still available from Elitegroup at http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=3&DetailID=386&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=93&LanID=0

Reversed polarity and now it keeps blowing fuses


For 25 cents, they could have installed a diode to prevent this problem, but now there isn't anything you can do, as the damage has been done by the reverse polarity.

I charged battery while in camera and left charging for a week and camera won't power up or turn on? it was with a universal charger and may have had higher voltage setting , could this have burned out...


Will your camera power on with a spare battery or through the electrical adapter ? If so then your camera is fine and the problem is your battery!

This is why manufacturers always recommend to use the supplied batteries and recommended chargers only and not some third party junk. This is why you have batteries exploding on people they don't read the warnings.

Yes it is possible to damage your battery - perhaps your battery cannot take a charge - it is NOT normal to charge a battery for a week !

your battery needs a nominal voltage to remain healthy if you allow it to drain below that voltage you have reverse polarity and your battery is good for the garbage bin.

use the recommended charger from now on and get new batteries.
