You need a new battery. Rechargable batteries eventually die and need to be replaced. The best way to make your battery last is to let it run all the way down each time before recharging.

As for the display, this sounds like a serious problem with the screen. How long the screen will last is impossible to guess - it might keep working the way it is for a few years, or it might die within months.

If your laptop is under warranty, send it to HP for repairs. If not, you should find out how much it will cost to repair before sending it in. If you want to buy a battery and take your chances on the screen lasting, I would suggest buying a used battery through eBay (or another source) rather than spending full price, just in case the laptop dies.

If you decide to keep the laptop and get a used battery, I suggest backing up important files regularly.

How do I charge the battery on a 1990 xlh sportster 1200


The voltmeter test provides general indicator of battery condition. Check the voltage of the battery to verify that it is in a 100 per cent fully charged condition. If the open circuit or disconnected voltage reading is below 12.6 V, charge the battery and then recheck the voltage after the battery has set for one to two hours. If the voltage reading is 12.8 V or above, perform the load test described below.



The load test measures battery performance under full current load and is the best indicator of battery condition. Load testing a battery tat is not FULLY CHARGED i.e. at 12.8 VDC can permanently damage it. Fully charge it first and then let it stand for at least an hour before the load test is done. You also need a load tester AND you should know how to perform a load test. Often the best way to load test a battery will be to take it to a battery shop and have it done there.



VOLTAGE and STATE OF CHARGE FOR AGM BATTERIES IS:

12.8 VDC is 100 per cent

12.6 VDC is 75 per cent

12.3 VDC is 50 per cent

12.0 VDC is 25 per cent

11.8 VDC is 0 per cent



COLD CRANKING AMPERAGE (CCA) for a DYNA battery is 270

Battery Charging Rates/Times (Approximate)



FOR A 19 AMP HOUR DYNA AGM BATTERY



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.8 VDC is 100 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge is N/A



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.6 VDC is 75 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 1.75 hours at 6 AMP is 50 minutes at 10 AMP is 30 minutes at 20 AMP is 15 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.3 VDC is 50 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 3.5 hours at 6 AMP is 1.75 hours at 10 AMP is 1 hour at 20 AMP is 30 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.0 VDC is 25 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 5 hours at 6 AMP is 2.5 hours at 10 AMP is 1.5 hours at 20 AMP is 45 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 11.8 VDC is 0 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 6 hours, 40 minutes at 6 AMP is 3 hours, 20 minutes at 10 AMP is 2 hours at 20 AMP is 1 hour



The figures listed above assume that the battery is charging at room temperature. If warmer than room temperature, use a slightly shorter charging time. If colder, use a slightly longer charging time.



The use of constant current chargers to charge maintenance free batteries is not recommended. Any overcharge will cause dry out and premature battery failure. If a constant current charger is the only type available, do not exceed the charge times listed above and do not continue charging the battery if it gets hot. When charging, never exceed 15 volts for more than 30 minutes.



If the battery gets hotter than 110 degrees F or 43 degrees C during charging, discontinue charger and allow the battery to cool. Overheating may result in plate distortion, internal shorting, dry out and/or other damage.

Spot on screen


Do you mean dead pixels or a dirt spot ??

A dirt spot, use hot water on a soft cloth to clean it.

Dead pixels, you can try this, keep moving between screen and sometimes this will unstick bad pixels.


Go here, then click F11, now RT click mouse button as fast as your finger can. do it like 20 times.

Now click F11 on the page that shows the words dead pixel test.
If they are still there you will need to check your warranty and see how many the company allows before they will fix.

The dead pixels on my beamer keep growing! Please help


how old is the car? Dead pixels is not something you fix, from the looks dead pixels is your issue, this is a result of prolong use and heat. you can replace the lcd with another that is compatible, thats another story.... but for now there is nothing you can do and it will continue to spread, to get the longest life out of your lcd try and see if there is an off button for the lcd itself, the more time it spends off, the longer it will last but there is no reverse button for this type damage- in case your wondering this may or may not have been prevented, try and keep lcd at a comfy temp, no prolonged direct sunlight etc and of course shut it off when not in use---- good luck... more questions? or I did not answer your question just let me know

Dead pixels


The lamp has nothing to do with dead pixels---no model is listed here but if a lamp you have a damaged optical light engine which causes the dead pixels in the picture.

Optical engines use a large number inside of micro-mirrors that open and close--if stuck in either position a pixel will not be working correctly.

I have an Darlac Electronic water timer DW253 but haver mislaid the instructions, where can I download a set?


I cannot find a manual for the Darlac DW253.
It appears the timer is set by moving each selector knob.
http://www.watermate.co.uk/secure/uploads/DW253%20(Small)%20new%20darlac%20pop.jpg

Knob on right is Run Time:
This is how many minutes timer will run each time.
Set run time from 1 minute to 120 minutes.
Knob on right also has ON-OFF override.

Knob on left is Frequency:
This is how frequently the timer will turn ON. Once per hour, once per each 2 hours ... once per 24 hours ... once per 72 hour ... once per week.

So set frequency to 48 and set run time to 20, then every 48 hours the water will turn on for 20 minutes.
To turn timer off, move right knob to OFF.
For continuous watering, turn same knob to ON.

This timer is battery-powered, probably 9 Volt, but maybe AA.
Battery carriage appears to be located on front below the function knobs.
Typically, water timer batteries last one season.

Timer can be connected to household spigot, or connected to any passive water supply for example rain barrel or tank.
Appears to have standard female hose thread on top, or possibly 1/2 pipe thread, and quick connection on bottom.

Plastic water timer exposed to freezing temperatures can crack. Drain water out of timer during cold weather.
Generally if water timer stops working: replace battery, clean battery terminals, and if functionality is not restored, then buy another timer.

Add a comment to fill out the missing details.

When scanning dots show up in a vertical pattern


Printer DPI and PPI Ratings, General Dots per inch stands for the maximum number of tiny spots of ink that the printer can place in a straight line where the spots are theoretically small enough (i.e. ignoring spreading or smearing effects of ink on paper) that if placed in every other such dot position leaving white space between them, the spots can be individually distinguished. Pixels per inch stands for the maximum number of unique positions in a straight line that the printer can place an ink spot under control from the outside world, namely from a computer connected to the printer. Lines per inch stands for how close thin parallel lines can be printed and still be distinguished in the finished printout. The spaces between the lines count as "lines". Pixels per inch and dots per inch originally referred to the same thing. The printer mechanism was under the direct control of the computer and was physically positioned and placed dots as directed by the computer. Back then, most printer mechanisms were limited to placing dots only in positions suggested by a grid of dots X per inch horizontally and Y per inch vertically, for example 100x100 dpi Nowadays, many printers put dots "wherever they want" as opposed to in positions suggestive of a horizontal/vertical grid. Still there is a minimum dot size and a minimum dot spacing. A picture file (image file) represents pixels in a uniform horizontal/vertical grid pattern. And the printer needs to make a finished picture of the size, say 5x7 inches, that the user chose regardless of the number of pixels in the picture file. To simplify the process of relating the pixel count in the picture file to the possibly non-uniformly spaced dots on the paper, the printer or its supporting software may generate a temporary intermediate picture file with a set number of pixels per inch. The printer may have, internally, several choices of ratio of pixels to dots and the published rating can be the largest ratio except that the published rating may not exceed the dpi rating. Therefore there might be three "per inch" values involved at a given time, the pixels of the original picture file, the pixels per inch that the printer works with, and the dots per inch of the printer mechanism. Pixels per inch is usually not mentioned with printers. All printers come with their own software (including parts called drivers) to install on your computer. Usually the software does not let you exercise control over individual dots using your picture file. Rather the printer takes your picture file or data file and uses its own built in logic to lay down the dots and create the printed output. We are led to believe that a printer's ppi is usually a fraction such as a half or a third of its dpi rating. When a temporary picture file is created, there are at least two levels of software in use. High level software (which may run in your computer) takes your picture file and creates the temporary file. Low level software runs in the printer, takes the temporary file and controls the dot size and dot placement on the paper. Sometimes a printer is advertised using a phrase such as "300 dpi 1200 dpi quality". This means that the printer has some way of making dark edges on a light background appear smoother than the first number would otherwise suggest. A printer with 300 dpi 1200 dpi quality definitely cannot resolve alternating dark and light pixels less than 1/300'th inch each. But curved and diagonal lines and color boundaries should not have jagged edges suggesting individual dots rigidly positioned on a grid with a 1/300'th inch pitch.

If the battery was run down enough 20 minutes of dring will not recharge it. It should go on a battery charger and then the battery condition checked. Just sitting and using the battery to play the radio is not a good idea. That is very hard on the battery and will shorten the life severly. If the battery was still the original I'd just replace the battery for a battery that old too much damage would have been done to even chance using it if would last it will not be long.

A line of Dead Pixels.


You are right it is a stuck or dead pixel, usually if it is a colred line but not grey it is a stuck pixel at the beginning of the line you can try a utility designed to flash bright colors repetedly over time to see if this will "unstick" it. Also you could have a dry joint on your TCP which would require opening it up to diagnose.
