Replace the Battery

  1. Remove five screws: two on the side, two on the bottom and one on the back behind the lanyard hook. When that screw is removed, remove the lanyard hook insert.
  2. Slide the metal backing down as shown in the photo. Then pull it straight up.
  3. Unhook the ribbon connection attached to the metal backing by lifting up on the brown flap where the ribbon is connected. The ribbon will then slide out.
  4. Pull the hard drive back as shown in the photo.
  5. Remove two screws near the bottom of the player. One is on the bottom and one is on the right side near the battery switch.
  6. The battery is now exposed. You can disconnect it by gently pulling on the red and black cables.

HOW DO I UNDER FREZZER MY KINDLE


Hold the power switch for 20 seconds. Slide the power switch and hold it in place for 20 to 30 seconds before releasing it.
  • You need to physically hold the power switch in its off position for this long. Doing so tells your device to "reboot," in essence, instead of merely shutting down.
  • The reboot screen should appear as soon as you release the power switch.

Give the Kindle time to reboot. The Kindle will reboot within a minute or two. Be patient and give your device ample time to finish its reset.
  • There is some possibility that the Kindle will freeze as it reboots. This may be the case if your Kindle stays frozen on the reboot screen for more than ten minutes.
Charge the Kindle. If the device freezes during the reboot or does not respond to the reset at all, plug the charger in and allow your Kindle to charge for 30 minutes or more.
  • Make sure that your Kindle has enough time to complete a full charge.

Hold the power switch down again. After you finish charging the Kindle, slide the power switch and hold it down for another 20 seconds.
  • The reboot screen should appear again. Give the device a minute or two to reboot before checking it again. This should complete the reset.

Tablet won't charge


With your tablet unplugged, press and hold the Power button for around 30 seconds. Then place your tablet on the charger (preferably the home charger) and wait a couple minutes. Then press and hold the power button for around 30 seconds again. If this does not help, then the battery may be bad. Storing a lithium-ion battery should done with no less than 40% battery life left, otherwise the battery voltage or power can go below the safety net (li-ion batteries are not fully dead when your device tells you they are. Once the battery reaches below the safe level, the battery is no longer good or safe to use anymore).

Shuffle not working


If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.


If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.


If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked.

When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.


If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.


If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.

Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.

hope this helps

When it is fully charge and i unplug it showing 80% but with in 30 minute it shows battery low.


All batteries have a certain lifetime to them. After so many charges the battery will eventually stop holding a charge. When this time comes, there is nothing to do except check the warranty on the battery and get it replaced or buy a new battery.
