If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Do You save electricity if you. Say quick wash or Fuzzy..

you use same the amount of power for the wash selection because the motor uses the same amount of power
you may save power by selecting shorter wash times because the motor is not running for as long
for example
a 1kw motor uses 1kw of power per hour but if used for half an hour still uses the 1 kw of power but only for a 1/2 hour so the cost of the power used will be less

Why does my battery keep draining without me leaving something on?

Well, when the engine is not running, everything that uses power runs off the battery And when it is running, everything runs off the alternator output, and the battery is only being re-charged.
Yes, it does sound possessed. I can only think of two possibilities: A dead or weak cell in the battery may run it low quickly, and the low voltages may be causing strange issues with your accessories. So, have the battery tested for free at a parts store. The other possibility is that a playful spirit has invaded your BCM (body control module) and wreaking havoc. The BCM (if you have one) does control lighting and interior accessories, so you may want to have it checked by the dealer or a reputable, knowledgeable shop. I'm pretty sure the BCM communicates with the car's computer, so there may be associated trouble codes that would help you solve it and weed out the gremlins. Good luck.

Hi, when i turn on the unit the word "HOLD" comes on for a second then the unit turns off.. What is up???

First thing is to check the power supply... dead battery or power adapter will be enough to start unit but quickly give out and turn off. If unit uses Alkaline batteries, do NOT try to use rechargeables as they run lower voltage and fail quickly, especially as they age.

I placed new batteries into the camera, however after one or two uses when I turn the camera back on, the camera says the batteries are exhausted and powers off.

Digital cameras use batteries p very quickly. Some batteries last longer than others. I buy large multi packs at the big box store near me. When you say two uses, do you mean just two pictures or two uses taking several pictures? You can go to your cameras menu and navigate through it to adjust several of the settings which will save power. You should also be sure that your battery setting is correct while you are there.

Look through your manual to read about the menu settings and battery usage.

Thank you for using FixYa.

To be very sure of what the problem is, try to test the your laptop with a another friend's battery, or through a technician first. If it powers, then try and test the laptop again with another AC Adapter, from someone who uses the same type, or a technician.
Trying out these two things will give you a clearer and better idea of what might have gone wrong.
Hope it helps you out.

The battery is pathetic. Need to recharge twice a day. Any suggestions for a better or different battery? Moreover How do I use GPS on this set

If your battary runs out really fast it could be that your bluetooth is switched on. With bluetooth on this phone uses a lot of power and the battary is empty really quick. The HTC Touch p3450 has no built in GPS. You need to buy an external GPS device and connect to it. How to do this can be found in the manual of the GPS device.
