Open Question

Batteries I have an old Optimus mini portable tv cat. no 16-176 it says use 4 AA alkaline batteries. I want to know if I can use rechargeable batteries and whick one would be the best to use with it? I had lost my tv for about 2 years and just found it. I will be getting a lot of use from it now but the batteries die too fast and I can't afford to keep buying them. Thanks for the help, Pat

Change to Ni-Mah rechargeables at the highest capacity you can find. If still in trouble it will suggest the internal battery has died - and a replacement is a repair job which will be pricey if feasible So just live without that feature.

I had the some problem... found a fix on another thread here on fixya...
hold the power button and at the same time press the play button.

Mine turned on after about 3-4 seconds of holding them down together!

SOURCE: Batter Life

This isn't a solution but is a confirmation. Battery life in this camera is terrrible, especially with alkaline batteries. The rechargable NiMh batteries do better, but even there life is substandard. When setting up the camera on the munus, you have to choose a setting for either alkaline or NiMh batteries. This seems to have some effect.

I have found that with new alkalines, the camera will even shut down so fast that it leaves the lens extended. The only I could find to get the lens back in was to put in freshly recharged NiMh batteries, and then push the power button to close. Then the camera was back to its voracious "normal."

SOURCE: Help with getting Yamaha 1981 Special running after winter.

Drain the old gas out of the tank to start with. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Be sure the bolts are tight. INSTALL AN IN-LINE FUEL FILTER. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.


Please rate this solution. Thanks!

How long will the battery last? Can it be recharged in my car? How long does it take to recharge?


Haier HLT71 portable TV battery is good for about 2 hours.
You can recharge it from your car cigarette lighter jack.
Or from your household 120 VAC wall plug.
It comes with both adaptors you need.
It takes about 8 hours for a full charge.
You can charge the TV while watching it, or you can power it off.
Not sure if it charges faster or the same if you are watching.
If the battery does not give you 2 hours after the first charge, try charging and using it a few more times to bring the battery up to full capacity.
Replacement batteries are available on eBay. Good to have for backup in case of a storm.

It sounds like you need to reset this device to original specs. This can be done by leaving it unplugger for 4 - 5 hours. Then is this does not work you will have to contact the company and get aa schematic. At that point we can begin troubleshooting.

No power via batteries


The batteries are put in wrong, or there no good, or the dc jack in the back still has the plug in it for the ac adaptor. You see theres a small switch on the jack inside the unit that switches from the ac adaptor to the batteries, when the jack is iserted. Also if the plug is not pluged into the jack, then there could be a bad jack or a broken solder connection on the jack inside on the printed circiut board. good luck
