My power lead, both 12v car adapter and 240v mains appear to have a loose connection with the PDA. Resulting in poor charging capability. On many occasions i get a flickering orange charge light and have now realised this does not constitute full charging. The unit is 2 years old and has never let me down (odd soft reset reqd.) Anyone had a similar problem or know where i can get it resolved
PS At present to get a full charge on 240v i have to hang the unit upside down over a PC monitor ? Obviously something is damaged somewhere !!!!
You will have to send it to a service support centre to get the connector repaired.You can buy it for approx £17 or send it to the centre for repair.it is a common fault with this machine.the connector is soldered on to the printed circuit so unless you are confident in repairing it i would pay the extra and give it to someone who knows what they are doing

The 12v & 240v switch is to change voltage supplied to the camper. You use the 12v if you are running things from the battery; you use the 240 when you're connected to what the US calls "shore power" or "land power"
Hello, if you connect the boombox direct to the your mains of 240v, the appliances will blow up , to avoid that you need a step down transformer to connect the boombox before it goes into the mains source. you do not need any adapter, only if you want to use battery that is when you to swicth to 12v
Sounds like either:-
1) a loose or poor connection on the main +12V supply feed, (check fusible link or in line 'Maxi' fuse connections to main fuse panel.
2) a loose or poor ground connection between the battery and chassis.
Check all ground bus's for corrosion or looseness.
no as long the player is not damage you can still match the voltage because the 12v is not going to turn on or work properly on the h320 because the voltage is not right. Unless if you have a closer voltage like 4.5v or 5.2 v it will be good it will work.
Example:When i bought my pda it did not come with adapter so they gave me an alternative adapter is supposed to 5v but they gave me 6v to try out first it work then second try i turn my pda using the ac it have problem with voltage because is too high than 5v. The next thing i did is buy another adapter good thing i found closer to 5v which is 5.2v which is it work.....now by pda work..properly and i can charge it properly too.. well it takes sometime to look around the shop until it can be found the right adapter....
Well i used the USB to AC adapter 5.2v...it work great... for mp3 player like h320,pda........
