    Thanks Greg but this battery is in a clip and looks like it can be popped out. I just don't want to put too much pressure on it . How do I release the clip to remove battery? It is about the size of a nickel. ghc

    Gregg, the good news is that you were right and it did pop out! The bad news is that my idea of it being related to the battery was wrong. I still get the "In power save mode, touch any key or mouse to continue" message. But when I do, nothing happens...it is like my computer is in a coma. ghc

  • georgenac Nov 29, 2008

    Gregg, Therein lies the problem...I can't get to anything to do anything. I have a black screen with the power save message on it. That's why I said it is in a coma. ghc

    Just bought it yesterday from local hospital. They clean them up and sell them to the public each year when they get new computers. I have 7 days to return for money back. I have not been able to get it out of the power save mode. When I touch the buttons on the screen, ie, brightness, that message comes up and then goes off. Nothing happens when I touch the keys or the mouse. I have a disc drive and a dvd. Haven't had it up and running to see what I have. Specs say:Pent 4, 40 gig hd etc.I really do appreciate the help. ghc

    G,

    Thanks so much for your interest in helping. I think I am giving up for the evening. I just hope my deal isn't a dud. I think I will call the hospital on Monday and talk with the man who cleared it for sale. His name came with the computer.

    You are so kind to have helped and I do mean that sincerely. Blessings to you and those you love. If it's okay, I'll let you know how we make it better. ghc

    Well if you don't mind shutting it off the next best option is go to display properties and go to screen saver and click on power and shut off your power saving mode or hibernation. I know shutting it off is a lot of time spent but it beats the coma thing. Hope that works for you

    Tell me more about your computer. Do you mean the message stays on there even after restart?
    Have you got a A:/ drive on it?

    well if you have a floppy disk drive i thought we might try to get in the doss way if we can. If you can get a win98 startup disk you at least got some options and you would even be able to download windows all over again. maybe that would straighten it up.

I have the Remington Cordless Power Mower Model MPS6017A. The battery, after three summers, no longer powers the mower, so I am looking to buy a replacement battery, SB60A, and I am having no luck finding...


The Remington battery has 5 Alkaline battery cells. The model batteries are Yuasa NP5-12T, NP 5-12T .250 terminal or Equivalent. It is a very Easy R & R job. Takes about 10 minutes. You should be able to pick up the batteries for around $10 - $15 each.

I have a kettler condor and have the same battery question as cjb4368. Thanks!


I posted this for a few people, if this is about replacing the battery:
If you look behind the unit, (directly behind the digital readout) you'll see a small rectangular inset, if you look up in that (I used my cell phone light), you'll see a tab that you can pry with a screwdriver gently to release the computer section. Just keep one hand on top, when you pry it you'll feel the unit pop up, then you can lift it out. It takes 2 AA batteries, thankfully not some bizarre disk batteries :)
Btw when you look at the readout, you'll notice it's set in a silver square- that square is the computer module that pops out.
Hope this helps!

Sounds like you think that you bent it, Probaly you will need some one else to look at it and come up with a better idea. It may need to be rebent or maybe you have it in the wrong way. I suggest you get someone else to look at it

Change batteries message pops up with new batteries


Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).
