Question about Samsung YP-T8 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Battery life cut down to 7 hours

Have had my YP-T8 for about 2 years and even though I charge it every night, the battery only lasts about 7 hours. Can you get a replacement internal battery or is there a special discharge sequence to "recharge" the battery or help the length of charge? Thanks in advance

The thing is, you recharge it too much. Because when you recharge it even though it still has battery power left, it tries to recharge it as much as if the battery was depleted. So, your battery overheats, therefore allowing you 7 hours instead of 20. And yes, it is possible to switch the battery.

    pc geek, you talked about why there's a problem, but said nothing about how to fix it! We are still wondering, how does one replace the worn out battery?

What is the battery life like on the Martian passport?


Depending on what you are using the watch for it will have different battery life. Using the talk feature you should get around 2 hours, on standby about 7 days, the analog watch has a seperate battery that should last 2 years and charging the watch takes 2 hours to get a full charge.

Tip

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

I have two interphone headsets that we have used for 4 years. We have begun to only have battery life for 2-3 hours. Is there a way to change batteries? Any help will be appreciated. They have...


With the BT Interphone that I have (~4yrs), one unit's battery would last <1hr. I carefully cut the rubber case along the bottom mold mark to remove the circuit board. The battery is a 3.7v 600 mah lipo. These are available from a variety of hobby shop sources, but are 650mah. $7-15 ea. Very careful cutting of the rubber case and minimal heat soldering is critical in installing a new cell. I'll use 3m weatherstrip adhesive to close it up.
Otherwise a complete new 3rd generation BT set-up is about $90 online. Mine still works good though.

I have a old pride victory 3 scooter working well what is the minimum charging time /how much for a replacement battery/s and how long do they last thanks


It is best to let it charge at least over night, longer if it hasn't been used for a while. It is also good to give them a long workout (Don't completely flatten them though) at least occaisionally. If they get regular and thorough use they will last longer, but extra weight like shopping, or lots of steepish paths will flatten them a lot faster. They are only supposed to last a couple of years, but will go longer if you look after them.

One of the most important things is to find a supplier/repairman you can trust. These are, after all your legs or mode of transport you are talking about.

Battery does not charge


Will the old battery (that you are replacing) charge up at all? If the old battery charges but the new battery will not, then it's likely a bad replacement battery.

To rule out the possibility of a corrupted battery meter inside of windows, you may wish to leave the laptop on battery power only, until it dies. A 5% charge will usually only grant you about 20 minutes of laptop life maximum. Since you left it charging all night, you should get a few hours of life before it dies. If you get a few hours of life, the battery meter software is corrupted.

Most likely though, the replacement battery is bad.

Battery life under 5 hours


have you let the battery go totally flat as this is recomended to do every couple of months because if you dont let the battery go totally flat this stops the battery from full recharging and will cause bad cells in the batt so i would let hte battery totally flat till it wont even light phone up then fully charge for 16 hours see if this improves the battery if not then the charger is probably over heating and cutting off so you could replace the charge hope this is some help to you
