    I think you are probably right about the short circuit. The million dollar question is how do I get it repaired in the UK; any advice?

Doesn't this player use a normal AA battery? If not, and it has a rechargeable battery built in then there are 2 possibilities. One, the cheap battery you got from China is no good. I always wonder how they can sell batteries for under $10 and ship all the way from China for free. I suspect it's because they are pretty crappy batteries. two, your player has a short in it somewhere that is draining the battery. i have an iPod that does that. I fully charge it and turn it off. Next morning it's dead again and i've replaced the battery numerous times.

LG B2050. cannot charge battery - there is a red light top left of phone - no information in manual. Any ideas please. Do not want to buy new battery if it is the phone that is at fault


considering that the phone was released in 2005 and is discontinued it is very likely the battery is in need of replacement. ebay would likely be your most inexpensive place to get a replacement. i generally buy any replacement batteries from hong kong... takes awhile to get them. but the cost is low. one thing tho. will the phone power up with the charger plugged in ? if it will not even do that it's time to get a new phone.

My camera will not charge. I put it on the charger and it works but after I leave it on for a few hours to charge, it doesn't even turn on. The blue light doesn't even blink like it used to. Would I need a...


In my honest opinion I'd say a resounding YES. It sure sounds like you need a new battery. How long have you had it and how many times have you charged it? Forget the 1000 charges they say the batteries are good for. That's all theory. If you think you need a new one then I'd say it's time to get a new two. Yes, never buy just one, always carry a spare with you just in case. If you don't need it, use it in the camera next time and rotate the batteries and they will last much longer. With prices so cheap especially on Ebay the price of two is usually cheaper than one with freight. I'd be inclined to get the package deal. Most Hong Kong dealers (where I buy ALL my batteries) do a package of 2 batteries and a charger at terrific prices and no they aren't rubbish otherwise I wouldn't have been buying them for well over 8 years.
Happy shooting

How do i charge my olympus u790sw? keeps saying battery empty and will not charge


Depending on how old the battery is and what sort of life it's led it could well be due for a replacement. They are extremely cheap especially from Ebay and the newer batteries last much longer per shoot. I assume you have checked the output of the charger and that the lead from the charger to the camera are in good order. A friendly repair shop should take only a few minutes if you can't do it. It is possible for almost brand new batteries to die in action. So don't be surprised if you do need a new one. By the way, when buying from Ebay most of the Hong Kong dealers sell the batteries in pairs. This is the best way to buy them as everyone should carry a spare with them.
Don't be concerned about buying from Hong Kong I've bought literally thousands of items and found I've had more hassles with local sellers than those from Hong Kong. And the batteries are about a quarter what you pay for them at home. Plus they are not rejects or duds. Those days are just about over.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???


Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

Acer notebook: But its not charging, 0% and a big X on the


You may have a bad cell in your battery pack (hopefuly its not the powersupply). First remove the battery from the underside of the laptop and replace it. Try charging again.

Check the output of the powersupply with a multi meter and ensure it is providing the proper voltage.

If the PS is good then go on ebay and order a new battery from Hong Kong for cheap (thats what I did :)

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Hi M8

Seems you have burned out your charging circuit.This is common on these units & you need to do one of two things,Either send it back to Archos & they will fix FOC if under warranty or buy a external charger which are a bit difficult to get hold of @ the minute.Can get them from Hong Kong - ebay.
