COBY PMP3520 - first charge, but still red light

I just plugged my new COBY PMP3520 into the wall socket to charge it for the first time. Yes, the battery is installed. The instructions say it should show a flashing green light when charging, but mine is a solid red. Does that mean it's already charged (seems odd), or is there a problem?

    Thanks! I went back to the manual again after seeing your comment, hoping to find something, and now I feel a bit foolish. It never tells you to turn on the player once it's plugged in. We learned thru experience that our cell phones charge much faster when turned off, so I assumed the player would be the same. The red light I was looking at is the one on the side of the case. They are referring to the on-screen display, which of course doesn't show until the machine is powered up. I seem to be charging just fine. Sorry to have bothered everyone, but I do appreciate you taking time to respond!

I own one myself I like it. WHen you have it plugged into a wall outlet a blue light will come on letting you know that the unit is fully charged. It will chargeup faster on AC power than through being hookedup ti a PC USB port.

Tip

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last


Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

Toughbook CF-74 Doesn't Charge or Power On. Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz.


Try powering the unit from the wall socket without the battery. This will eliminate the battery as the faulty componet.

Yes I would say this is a fault with the receiving power connector on the notebook. It will need to be repaired.

Take care!

I'm having a hard time getting my Flip HD to charge. It is brand new and this is the first time I've had to charge it. Sometimes the red light is on and steady and other times the red light is flashing. ...


I had this charging problem with 2 new Flip Ultra HD cameras...red light flashing..nothing on the screen after plugging in the USB port.

I removed the battery..plugged camera into USB port..pc recognized the camera... installed flipshare software..updated software...plugged battery back in..all good.

Why on earth the book doesn't mention these steps is beyond me.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Can I use a wall charger on a COBY 705 4G?


Yes, However it will show up as a USB cable but hold the power switch and will begin to charge. You also can use the player while it charges that way!
