If you haven't used the device for a year, it is not surprising that it may not charge. The rechargeable Lithium ion battery may no longer accept a charge, especially if it was stored in a zero-charge condition. It' probably time to replace it. In the future, try to charge anything you don't plan to use for a while to 50-70% of full charge before storing it. I have destroyed a number of cordless phone batteries by letting them sit for a few weeks after a complete discharge, but luckily they are easy to replace.

I have the Arrow CT50 stapler, it won't drive the staple, light works makes a sound like it wants to drive staple but don't. I have adjusted the power to all the way + and the battery shows 4 green lights....

It sounds like the battery is failing low battery voltage equals loss of power. The batteries used in this type of tool are the cheapest ones out there to keep the cost of the tool low, and have a very short lifespan, it is not the number of times used but how old they are that is the main factor

It is unlikely that the capacitor will have any charge on it so you should shake it gently to charge it up. You certainly can't do any harm by charging it, even if the capacitor did have any charge.

After having my Canon PowerShot A1100 IS for a year, the batteries would die after only a few pictures. I was using regular AA batteries in it and not NIMH batteries.

Crazy thing about "regular" AA's I ran into the same thing and just shook ,my head but the regular batteries just don't last in the cameras at all switch to a set of rechargeable and you'll get a lot more pictures per charge. On my little camera I went from getting about 30 pictures to a set of AA's to over 300 with the rechargeable type. I don't know what country you are in but Sony has a set that when you buy them they are already charged AND once used and charged again will hold up to 80% of their power for a year just sitting, basically unheard of for a rechargeable battery

My spouse had to get out 1996 ford explorer boosted while i was at work,so that evening i tested the battery it had a charge of 12.4 and is about 5 years old so i bought a new battery ,i put the new...

A new battery should have approx 12.62 fully charged
It could be slightly more
If you ever see 13 volts, on an old battery, it is gone

You need a min of 12.5, to do any testing of your vehicle, or you charge it
It should hold 12.5 or more for 3 or 4 weeks,then charge, if you let the truck sit

It has been sitting for a year and I plugged it in for 3 hours now and went to use it and it doesn't turn on but the light on the battery is still green. what's wrong?

Your batteries are shot. If they haven't been charged for a year you won't charge them now or ever. Replace the batteries, charge before use and regularly as you use the chair. The new batteries need to be broke in and must receive use to get them to 100% Use your chair daily and charge daily for at least 20 days. Hope this helps

Does my 2001 cabrilo have to have a good batery to drive? i jump it off because the battery is dead. been sitting for over a year. start to drive and when i slow down the car cuts off

No, but it needs either a good battery or a good alternator. It sounds like your alternator is barely working and not able to produce voltage at idle. Perhaps the battery would be OK with a new alternator in the car.

'92 probe won't hold charge

cold does strange things.. check battery health with load test... check cables especially grounds... test for parasitic leak of electrical by inserting a test light between battery ground post and cable .. only faint light for radio and comuter should exist ..a bright light means a draw and should be discovered by removing fuses one at a time til located ...good luck
