Hi, I would suggest that the Battery is faulty.. a common occurrence I have found... Try a brand new or fresh charged know good battery.. I think ya may find thats the culprit.. Also check & clean the Batt Cons inside the unit.

My ibm wont turn on unless the charger is in it just wont turn on.


The battery must have gone bad! if its three or more years old you need to get a new battery for the computer. Periodic conditioning of the battery from first use may prolong the battery life. Battery life is reduced by plugging computer with battery all the time.
Conditioning. Periodic full charge and full discharge practice is good for battery. Batteries are better charged when they are at less than 10% power and its better to charge them to 100%. Do not leave on electric power once they are fully charged.
I hope this helps in future but current battery may need replacement!

Memory card question


Hi,

Did you put the memory card in while the device was off? If not, turn the unit off and back on again. It should be pretty straightforward, once you put the card in the player should recognize it.

My apple ipod wont play


It sounds like the battery is fried. That's the same thing that happened to mine. I had to take it to the Apple store, had them look at it, and they actually exchanged it for a refurbished iPod. There's not much you can do at home, unless you want to order a new battery from Apple. I would still recommend having them install it.

Memory card question


It should read the songs automatically. Once you have inserted the card with MP3 Format or WMA formatted songs it should read it.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on


I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck
