Controller will not "communicate" with the battery

If I attach a fully charged re-chargeable 9V battery into its sockets the controller does not draw from it. I only have 3 stations connected. Could this be a factor? I have had the controller for 13 years and do not know if the battery back up aspect has ever functioned. It is possible that at the beginning the battery was installed before the unit was switched on. The booklet says "the battery must be installed after the power has been applied. The fuse is okay. I am not sure what the booklet means when it says "6-9 Stations".

SOURCE: No battery communications

Hi,

You will get that message when the communications cable is not hooked up. It looks like a phone line and daisy chains from one battery to another and ends at the Matrix Control unit. If you have those installed and it still says no communication the system need service.

If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage from each battery at the plug. It should be 48 volts or more, usually on a fresh battery pack it will read 54.0+ volts.

Hope this helps,
Dean

SOURCE: Pioneer DEH 225 car radio instructio booklet

Actually, there a re a bunch of hits when you Google it.

Here's the answer I found straight from Pioneer:

If your car CD player is a 2006 model or newer:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • Press and hold the MULTI-CONTROL button for 2 seconds
  • Rotate MULTI-CONTROL button until display reads CLOCK.
  • Push MULTI-CONTROL button up or down to adjust hour and minutes.
  • Press ESCAPE or SOURCE button to exit

If your car CD player is newer than 2000 but older than 2006:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button, until the display pops up, then release the button.
  • (If you do not have a function button, use the AUDIO button instead).
  • Press the FUNCTION button again until the clock shows on the display.
  • Press the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the hours.
  • Press the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the minutes.
  • Press the UP and DOWN to adjust the minutes.
    When you've completed all the steps, just press the SOURCE button to exit
    .

If your car CD player is 1999 or older:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number preset button to set the hour.
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number 2 preset button to set the minutes.
  • Pressing the respective buttons consecutively or continuously will advance the hour and minute.
For further assistance please consult your user manual.

Here are some other answers from around the web:

Hold down the source button till the unit switches off. Press thefunction button until it says clock. Use the tuner/volume controls tochange the time. Left/right switches between hour and minute. Up/downchanges the actual numbers.The website I'm including has all the old manuals on it if this doesnot work for you. Problem is, you may not know your model # so willhave to click through the links till you see a pic of one that lookslike yours. Hope this helps. I'm stoked that my clock is finally right!

turn the radio OFF with the car ON
then its easy to set the clock.
Most folks try to figure it out with the radio on
and it cant be done with the radio on,

Turn it off. Hold down "func" or "function" until something happens.
Then press the arrow keys still something else happens. When you're done, press "func" or "function" till nothing happens. Turn it on.

SOURCE: Analog / Digital stations

Hello mikekahan,

OK you are not going to like this but here we go any way. First of all I need to explain how your channels are created.

When the RF signals come into the headend of the Down converters they are separated into pre channelized designations DC (Down Converter) 4 Stream 1 (DC 4-1, DC 4-2...) now once this is done the down converter signal is fed into a channel processor which takes the incoming signal from the Down Converter remodulates it and puts it on an assigned channel 4-1 could become channel 4, 4-2 could become channel 5 and so on. Once this is done you end up with your regular channel line up for analog channels, now for digital its a little different you have IRDs (Integrated Receiver Decoders) which take the off air or satellite Digital RF signals and convert them into MPEG Streams which is the fed into what is called a SEM (Motorola Architecture) Stream Encryption Module which assigns numeric designations to the MPEG streams and then converts the MPEG streams back into RF. Now at this point we have analog and digital signals what then has to happen is the the analog signals must be turned into MPEG streams to go through the system so what happens is from the channel processor the analog signal is put into a SE (Stream encryptor) Like the SE1010. This takes the analog stream and turns it into am MPEG stream and feeds it into the SEM also and the SEM assigns a numeric designation just like the digital signal and this can sometime follow the same numeric designations as was obtained from the Down Converter, So what you end up with is analog and digital signals having the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2, ..... format. This is where other equipment comes into play These designations are then kept in a database and are matched to their proper channels by use of the DAC and RADD along with an IPG server. These allow the SEM to assign true channel designations to the converted channels, now the SEM DAC, and RADD talks to your STB, this is way the channels are correct because the SEM and the DAC/RADD are matching what is on the IPG (Interactive Program Guide). When you remove your cable box the tuner in your TV does not know how to deal with the DAC, RADD and IPG signals so it only displays the RF information which is the 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2 data.

I hope this helps,

SOURCE: A Nelson controller won't accept programming commands

Look for a 'master reset' in the manual. This should put everything back to 'default setting'. Then start over in your programming. Don't forget to save after you program your parameters.

Why does it seem as though my battery is completely dead but it isn't?


A bad cell could have too much internal resistance when the battery has to draw many amps to turn starter over. Put headlights on then hit the starter, if the headlights go off, the battery is bad or a connection at the battery cable or ground cable is dirty.
If you have a voltmeter, attach to battery and notice voltage of ~12v or greater, then hit starter, if battery is bad, the voltage will go from ~12v to under 9v and result is starter won't turn over the engine.

My 4s tga breeze keeps slowing down when I use it any ideas . Please help


hi, okay what happens to the battery indicator when this happens ?

Some points to note : the brake could be coming back on , check the brake by carefully touching it after use , take care because they can get very hot..if's it hot ,,, then it's not releasing fully or coming back on due to a brake issue, controller issue or simply a bad connection..

1. Battery & the charger.. Batteries may be fully charged however that does not mean they able to contain the load you place on them .

2. Brake...

3. a worn throttle pot... (WigWag, the go forward lever is attached to one )

At Worse a controller fault.

I offer a free controller test service..

Will not fly lift . Seem to run well but will not lift off the ground


The batteries on the Helicopter need to be fully charged to take off.

And important: to recharge the helicopter fully it needs really good base unit batteries.

I find all this a waste so - I used a wall power supply to supply suitable power to the charging bases of these helicopters give more consistant results than using batteries.. Just make sure you are using a 9V DC wall transformer (6 1.5v batteries = 9v) and that the polarity is correct.

Problem is not the batteries then. Replace the controller. The controller could be resisting some of the charging current to the battery.

But first try this:

Charger the scooter with it OFF

Directly connect the charger to the battery

If still the same problem then:

Directly connect the charger to the battery then,
connect the motor leads directly to the battery and see how long it runs. It with new the batteries it should run longer than a minute. If it does than something is definitively wrong with the controller.

The battery attachment for the 9V battery broke. One of the clips that attaches to the battery broke off when I was trying to take the battery out to replace it. Is there a way to add a new 9V battery...


if you are a bit handy, you can by replacement 9v packs/adapters that you can solder or wire nut on. Depending on what type of remote you have, it might be more economical to by a new one. the packs are ready available on eBay.

Playstation 3...Battery in controller is low, plug in controller


The dead give away for a dying controller is the red light on the numbers will flash.

When you plug your controller in and hit your PS button, at the top you'll see a controller symbol and a battery icon. If the battery bars are moving then it's charging. When it's fully charged it will display 3 bars solid even when plugged in.

I've been wrong before; but I'm 99% sure you cannot turn off the system and have the controller charge. As far as I know the system must be on while charging the controller. From my experience it takes about an hour or 2 to get it fully charged.

Good luck and if i've helped you please give me 4 thumbs up!

Respectfully,

Don

Ok, so heres the problem. My wireless Xbox 360 controller keeps shutting down every 5-20 seconds and bringing up the ''Please reconnct controller'' icon on the right. I've replaced my batteries. So is...


In case you face this problem even after replacing your batteries, you can try following two steps:

1) Check if the rear cover to battery storage that fit's to controller feels loose while attached to controller, while playing or not, becuase i encounter this problem sometimes on my controller which disconnects once in a while even with full battery charged, i remove it and re-attach again firmly it works, maybe you can try attaching a tape around it and check.

2) you may have take the controller apart and look for cold(bad) soldering on the battery leads, don't do this unless you are familar with handling hardware issues.

Check the batteries you use on some other controller in case they are re-chargeable ones in some other controller, maybe your battery charge cycle could have exhausted.

Let me know if this helps, please do take time to rate my solution

Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Always start with the simplest solution first so start by cleaning all the contacts, AC adapter laptop plug, laptop socket, laptop battery contacts and battery contacts. How have you confirmed power output from the AC adapter? have you used a voltmeter to ensure you are getting power at the laptop end? Have you used a voltmeter to test the battery? Assuming you have tried all this don't forget that almost any component can interrupt power on some laptops, however you're 2 main culprits with this kind of problem are usually power controller (voltage regulator) and in some cases, on a laptop of this vintage, the charge controller built in to the battery. Try it with a different battery if you have one.
