Question about Aiptek ISDV2.4 Flash Media Camcorder

2 Answers

Battery power only allows 5 minutes of filming time

I used the included batteries, and then replaced within 5 minutes. Those batteries only lasted about 2 minutes. This camcorder boasts longer video taping time on the package, 50 minutes. But, I can only get up to 8 minutes on a given set of batteries before the camera shuts off. It's frustrating and annoying, and it could get extremely expensive. I'm ready to take it back if I can't find an answer. This is an Aiptek ISDV2.4 camcorder.

Some camcorders have a manual eject button that will open the compartment and allow you to remove the film/tape. Since you again declined to specify the model of your camcorder, I can't tell you whether this solution applies to you.
If you need further information, please feel free to reply to this post, but be sure to include the model of your camcorder.

I purchased a Navman MY50T Christmas before last and do not use it on a regular basis. Yesterday when I went to use it after fully charging it, it ran out of battery power within 5 minutes and did so...

yes you need to replace the batt the reason for burn out so fast can be a number of things from moister getting into it during storage to simply bad line assembley

Drill only attempting to drill, its only working for very short periods

If the unit is battery powered, the battery may be on it's last legs. Replacement of the battery pack is the usual fix, but there is a battery repair service available that can replace the individual cells for roughly the same price as a new replacement. Go to: I have had very good luck with a Skill battery pack rebuild with lithium cells instead of the original NiCads. Seems like a much longer run-time per charge and it holds right up to the end for power. Hope this helps!

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

How do u turn the polaroid 600 0n or off?

on all the time- battery is in the film pack, and when you press the shutter it gets all the power from the film pack battery. If the camera doesn't work, it's possible that the battery is dead, even if you have film left. You'll need to try and get the film pack replaced, if the expiration date has not passed.If it has passed your just out of luck.  Since Polaroid made their last run of film forever this last summer,  this camera is probably going to be obsolete soon, so get your film  while you can.

My Powercom UPS battery backup is lasting for 5 minutes than it is shutting down.Can you provide me the solution. Model No. is 2200APRM1320W It is very urgent, please.

The UPS can temporarily provide power to IT hardware in the event of a disruption to the Mains power supply. The UPS should stay powered up for long enough to enable the hardware it is protecting to be powered down in a controlled manner, before shutting off itself. The 5 minute period seems reasonable for such a task (although significantly less than the rated time), and if at any point within that period the Mains power supply comes back online, the hardware could continue to work.

I note that this particular model is supposed to provide battery power for 85 - 95 minutes. The amount of time it can supply regulated voltage for will depend upon the load placed upon it. The greater the load (in terms of current drawing devices), the shorter the amount of time that the UPS will be able to provide power.

There may be a Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years for this model, although labour charges will probably be made.

1st Generation Ipod Model a1040 The battery last only a few minutes after charging and the ipod crashes when you try to play a song. Once turned back on the battery shows as severly depleated within...

Batteries can only take a finite number of charges and they degrade over time.  A 1st gen IPOD is at least 5-6 years old.  The battery is probably bad.  You can buy a replacement battery from Sonnet Technologies (  It comes with installation instructions and is really easy to replace.
