Batteries will not charge

I was told that filling the unit with rechargable batteries would be a good idea.

The batteries are not charging when the unit is not running.

Was i mislead?

May I ask which type of rechargeable batteries you are using.
NiCad or lithium Ion?

Also, any rechargeable battery will not charge unless the unit is powered up or "running".

  • My reply is Feb 23, 2009

    NiCads are OK but do deteriorate over time and also suffer from what is known as the "Memory effect".

    A better rechargeable battery would be the Lithium Ion type although these are a little more expensive (but in my opinion, worth the extra cost), also they do not suffer from the "Memory effect" but as with all rechargeables, they will not recharge unless the unit is connected to a power supply or separate "Stand alone" charger.

    Regards and thank you for rating my reply.

Rechargeable batteries, especially the Nickel-Cadmium type (NiCad) suffer from a phenomenon known as "memory". If they are routinely discharged only partially then put back on charge they will eventually "remember" this duty cycle and work only a few minutes before needing to be recharged. This can sometimes be reversed, but doing so is not always easy. The newer NiMh (Nickel Metal-Hydride) batteries have mostly overcome this problem, but shallow-cycling your rechargeable batteries is still not a good idea. It's also a possibility that your batteries are worn out and need to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries can only be recharged a certain number of times before they go bad. With top quality batteries and a proper charge/discharge cycle, you can occasionally get up to 1000 charge/discharge cycles out of them. With so much of this stuff coming from China these days it is becoming increasingly difficult to find really good rechargeable batteries.

If these are lead-acid batteries, then the symptom you describe indicates that replacement is likely needed.

Radio shack walkie talkie 21-1914 replaced batteries will not charge


Hi pearl,

A simple problem to solve at last!!!

Inside the battery compartment you should find a switch, which indicates Recharge/Normal, make sure you select recharge if your using these batteries, otherwise no charging occurs.

If this does not work, take out the recharchables and select normal on switch, place fully charged normal batteries into the compartment, making sure you put them in the right way around, close the flap and turn on the radio, if this works, then your battery switch is faulty, however, you can get lithium ion batteries, which will last longer than most other high duty batteries.

The cost of getting these radios is not worth the money, unless you are technically minded and buy the repacement switch and repair it yourself.

Otherwise try all of the above, and remember, when charging batteries that are rechargeable, never leave the radio on, as this can wear out your batteries quickly.

I hope this advice is helpful to you.

Best regards,
Peter

I just bought a Nikon coolpix 3000 yesterday and I pluged for charging 6:30Am this morning. However the charge light is still blinking now(4:00Pm)Is this something wrong??


Hi,

There is a possibility that the lithium batteries are dead and won't charge up. You can go out and purchase 4 AA rechargeable batteries and put them in the battery pack and see if they will charge up.

If you still get a problem with the camera not charging, take the camera back and have it replaced.

NOTE: rechargeable batteries lose their life after a short while so it is a good idea to carry spares around with you.


Regards.

How to charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!


the best way to charge the batteries is to take them out and place them in an external battery charger, this will also avoid any damage to the camera directly

then also check to see output MA of the USB adaptor which would generally be very less and takes very long to charge

for example if the batteries are 2200MAh and the output MA of the USB adaptor or for that matter of even an external adaptor is 200MA then it takes roughly 11 hours to completly charge the batteries

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

RCA headphones - nicad or alkaline batteries WHP141


BATTERY INSTALLATION AND INFORMATION
Your wireless headphone unit requires two rechargeable AAA batteries.
Rechargeable batteries are uncharged when you purchase them. Before
you can use the wireless headphones, the batteries must be charged for
16 hours. Follow these steps to install and charge the batteries.
Installing the Rechargeable Batteries
Take care to follow these steps to correctly install the batteries.
1. On the right headphone, locate the battery compartment (1).
Use the finger depression on the compartment to turn the battery
compartment cover counterclockwise to remove the cover.
2. Insert two AAA rechargeable batteries, carefully following the
markings inside to ensure the batteries are inserted properly, with
the + and - ends in the correct positions.
3. Replace the battery compartment cover.
Charging the Rechargeable Batteries
To recharge the headset unit, follow the directions below. Note: The
cradle/transmitter on the WHP141 is not a recharging cradle, although
you may place the headset in the cradle during recharging.
Follow these steps to recharge the NiMH rechargeable batteries.
1. Make sure the ON/OFF switch (2), located on the right headphone,
is in the OFF position.
2. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket (11), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter.
3. Plug the adapter into an electrical outlet.
4. Connect the charging cable (10), located on the back of the
cradle/transmitter to the recharging input (3), located on the right
headphone. The headphones can either be placed in the
cradle/transmitter or placed next to the unit. If the headphones are
connected correctly, the charging LED indicator light on the
cradle/transmitter (8) illuminate.

Microtalks won't charge


I have the Cobra Microtalk 4100 FRS radios with charging base. After changing the batteries with new nimh rechargables the charge light would not illuminate and the unit would not charge. I noticed the original batteries had a metal band around one end. This band makes a small connection inside the battery compartment on the first battery. Seems to be a cheap way to ensure you dont try to recharge the unit with non-rechargable batteries installed. I rapped a small piece of tinfoil around one end of the first battery in the new set then popped it back in and now they will charge correctly again. Dont try this with non-rechargable batteries! I would recomend buying original replacement batteries.

Printer will not charge camera batteries. camera screen said to go on line and look for m627-435


Did you go online and look up this troubleshooting tip from HP?  Did you make sure the batteries are rechargeable and in the correct orientation ( + and - )? Here is the results from looking up the error code M627-435 at the HP website:
Solution
  1. Ensure that the batteries are rechargeable. If the batteries are not rechargeable, replace them with rechargeable batteries.
  2. If the batteries are rechargeable, take them out and check for obvious physical damage. If the batteries are damaged, replace the batteries with rechargeable batteries in good physical condition.
  3. If the batteries are in good condition, charge the batteries using the external charger that shipped with the camera before using them in the camera for the first time.
  4. If you have tried each of the steps above and the status message still displays when you try to charge the batteries, replace the batteries.
Cause The Batteries cannot be charged status message is usually caused by one of the following:
  • When first connected to an optional HP AC power adapter or placed on an optional dock, the camera performs a test to determine if the batteries are rechargeable. If the test determines that the batteries are non-rechargeable, an status message displays in the LCD.
  • If the battery charge falls below 1.1 volts, the camera cannot detect that the batteries are rechargeable. The camera does not charge batteries below a 1.1-volt threshold to prevent charging non-rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries discharged below 1.1 volts can be charged in an external charger.
    Apparently, your batteries are either seriously discharged where you need to use an external AC charger to recharge the batteries or their damagaed and need replacing. Hope this helps.

Why won’t my camera recharge my batteries?


Not all cameras can charge batteries. CAUTION: Rechargeable batteries must never be used in the HP Photosmart 210 and 215 series digital cameras. The overload protection and control circuits are not designed to handle the kind of power intensity delivered by rechargeable batteries. If the camera is a model that does charge batteries, ensure the batteries are rechargeable: The only acceptable rechargeable batteries for HP Photosmart cameras are NiMH cells. Neither lithium nor alkaline cells are rechargeable, and they will not be charged in the camera. The camera must detect the type and condition of the batteries The camera will only charge batteries when it detects the batteries are rechargeable and in good condition. New rechargeable batteries, and/or batteries than have been unused for a long time will not be recognized as good batteries. If the camera fails to charge NiMH batteries, charge them in an external charger once, then use them in the camera. If this does not correct the problem, the cells are old and/or damaged and new cells must be purchased.
