Philips power supply ps843 .this unit was working perfectly until I decided to connect it to a car battery that needed to be charged. Connecting the the two wires at the back of the set marked battery all seemed ok at first but when I checked about half hour later the front light in the switch which normally lights up was off. On pulling out the 3Amp fuse at the front panel showed it had "blown". I replaced it with the same rating but it also blew. Where do I begin to look for problem?

SOURCE: amp keeps blowing fuse

I have this same problem. You have blown the internal amp. I have had 2 of these do the same thing. There is nothing you can do but report it to infinity and try to get the unit replaced.

When you insert the card and get the CHA Flashing error, remove the card and format it. Reinsert it again.
Should work.

Renard, just offhand without see'ing the unit, I'd say that something got sparked wrong in the hookup process. The taletell "puff of smoke" tells me the protection circuit or protector diode got "smoked" in the process. It's more than a fuse now, the protection circuit is blowing the fuse, to stop further damage. I'd say that, at least the protector diode needs changed and to check out for any other damage. Probably need a good tech to visually "check" the unit thruout. Definately needs to have it put on the meters and guages to fix all the damage at one time, something that cannot be done by talking you thru it,,, Mechanic

Troubleshooting back-up malfunction after replacing battery. Checked main power supply breaker and battery power supply fuses for continuity. What should I try next?


Depending on the type of unit, you do not state any model. It may require 6-8 hours of being plugged in and turned off before the battery has enough charge that the ups will turn on.

"cold" start lurching and "indecision" in choosing between electric and gas engine. Mechanically felt like a slipping clutch. Problem subsided after about 10 minutes run time.


Partial cars are still in the infant stage and there will be problems at the point where the CPU has to decide wether to power up and charge the battery or run on a dwindling battery supply. The cars are designed to charge the battery off the brake application so on long down hill runs with the brakes applied the energy is converted to charge the battery and it will be at this point if the battery is nearly flat that the CPU is hesitant to start the engine or rely on the charge from the brakes. I would think that there will be a huge learning curve before you get the hang of it. However having said all that , I would think a trip to a service centre to check it out might be in order.

My son took game out of console without powering off now screen is frozen and I cannot even power off have tried other games screen stays the same


Hi.

You will need to remove the battery to get the DS Lite to turn off.

Get yourself a Philips screwdriver and a small flat headed screwdriver, then close the lid on the DS. Next turn the DS upside down with card slot facing towards you.
On the right hand side of the DS you will see a Philips screw head near the bottom, unscrew that screw and remove the battery cover. This will expose the battery itself. Use the flat headed screwdriver to gently pry the battery out from the right hand side.
Once the battery is out the DS will shut down. Reinsert the battey again and screw the cover back on.
Switch the DS on and it should work properly again. If it freezes again just repeat these steps.



Regards.

First time charging up of archos 5,it has now been charging for about 14-15 hours. but the green light did'nt blink yet. it says after fully charge, the green light blinking. what can be the promlem about...


@wilkerwkocer 

On an Archos, battery is fully charge when the CHG LED light is flashing, while that light is ON all the time, the unit is still charging.

Now, in order to charge your Archos you must leave it on Suspended mode, by holding the Power button for about 4-5 seconds until it says "Suspending", DO NOT leave it on completely "Shutdown" mode, or your battery will never charge, and you are also risking the life of your battery by doing so.

So in other words:

1) On a PC via USB it should take around 8 hours to charge, while connected to an Archos mini dock, battery dock, or DVR Station, it should take around 3 hours to fully charge.

2) Leave your unit completely "Shutdown" (hold the Power button and wait 10 secs. or so until it says "Shutting down" and let it go off.

3) Connect it to your power source, either USB on computer, or external charging device as mentioned above, it will come back on, the two LED lights CHG and Power will come on, leave it like that, and after a few minutes the unit will go into Standby/Suspended mode by itself, and there is when you are charging your battery the right way.

3) Wait 8 hours if connected to your PC, or 3 hours if connected to an external power supply (as described above). If still after being in suspended mode (not completely off) your CHG light isn't blinking after the 8 hours on PC, 3 hours on external power supply, then suspect your battery is defective.

In that case, if the unit is still under warranty contact Archos, if it is out of warranty. If it isn't under warranty, you can buy a replacement battery on eBay and either replace it yourself, or find someone with the technical skill to do it for you.

I hope this helped you.

Frozen but now warm


You haven't ruined the player.

Battery is too low for player to charge. There is a firmware fix for this at www.p4c.philips.com

Fix cannot be applied until player is working again.

If you know someone who has the same player, put their battery in your unit to power up and apply firmware update to fix problem. Then swap batteries back again

Another way to get the player working is to remove the side panel to disconnect battery. Plug in the mains charger and reconnect the battery. You may need to do this several times before the player springs into life.
If this doesn't work try disconnecting the charger and battery alternately and wait 5 secs between attempts.
