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.

SOURCE: Does Not Stay On

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

Why is Philips Boombox not working from mains without batteries?


When you plug a cord into a two pin connector that I assume is on the side of the box, it should disconnect the batteries inside. If taking the batteries out kills the power completely with the cord still attached, then the switch on the power socket in the unit is NOT connecting the built-in power supply.

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.

IT WILL NOT TRON ON


Just make sure the hold/lock is not engaged. If nothing works then try downloading the latest version of the Philips Device Manager.

You can also try removing the unit and trying to charge the battery connecting it to a suitable DC power supply for a couple of hours.

I would also suggest to hold the play/pause button, then hold the switch on button for a moment. Ideally it should boot into recovery mode. Now click the "Clean Up", and then "Reboot". If that fails, try to reload the firmware again.

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.

Jfdkla;


I have the same problem right from day dot.... have found that using a pin on the reset button gets it back on every time! But the problem keeps coming back. I believe its a software bug on these units.
Have you tried using another USB port? Did you reset the player? Just make sure the hold/lock is not engaged. If nothing works then try downloading the latest version of the Philips Device Manager.

You can also try removing the unit and trying to charge the battery connecting it to a suitable DC power supply for a couple of hours.


i believe if it doesnt work till then its better to return the unit and get a new one if ur unit is still under warranty....

Sony DCR-VX1000E batteries


Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

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.
