My Mach 1 electric scooter charged one day used one day now won't charge


I would take the batteries to a place that sells auto batteries and have them checked Sounds like they may be no good. Take to an independent store as there is no charge to check them Have them write down what they found and then go back where you bought it.

HP Mini 2140 "Plugged in, charging" but not charging


Hello jorel, most likely its a failure of the system board particularly the charging section, a broken pin or a loose terminal. work will be internal, suggest you do away with the battery. its better to operate it at home, or bring the charger with you. Maybe its time to get a new one.

How do you connect 200897 battery, it is no longer working


I just bought a battery (readily available) for $16 and here is how I replaced it, but first, make sure UPS is disconnected from 120 Volt service. (Old battery number SW1233 with F connectors.)

Turn the UPS over and look for 1 tiny screw (even with the "in" telephone wire socket). Remove the screw (turn CCW). Push the button marked push, then slip a steak knife or sharp putty knife into the joint in front of the screw hole. Twist the tool enough to start the battery cover moving backward (to your left).

The battery is upside down. Lift it high enough to grab wires and pull them off the postst.

Verify battery you bought fits the housing. With UPS upside down, place battery on right side with lugs toward the power cable. Push red wire onto red post. Hold the battery upside over UPS. Push black wire onto black post.

Visually ensure the wires both run in their channels (otherwise the battery will not seat and the cover won't slide on.) Push battery into slot until it bottoms.

When the battery is bottomed properly, hold the cover about 2/3's over the battery housing, push it down, then push it toward the screw hole (to your right). If this operation, or the cover jams near the screw hole, check the battery. It must be absolutely bottomed in the slot. The cover won't go on easily even when everything is perfectly aligned.

After the cover is closed and the screw replaced, plug the UPS into a wall socket. The on/off button has a mind of its own, so ignore it. The green light may light and there is one beep. The backup yellow light may blink. The green light may stay solidly on. Pull the cord plug out of the wall. Now the UPS green light may go out and you will hear a ratcheting sound (the UPS is making AC from the 12 Volt battery current). Because you have no device plugged into a "battery-backup" plug, the UPS will shut off automatically in a few minutes.

The last test is to reconnect the plug to the wall service, then plug a monitor, a music system, or something similar into a Battery B/U connector. The green light should light. When the UPS is again unplugged, the yellow light (Backup) flashes and there is a repeating beep. Plug UPS back in. Only the green light will be on. That's it, all done.

I use Newpoint UPS to back up my telephone/modem. During a brownout, SPS powers those units almost 2 hours.

Note: This UPS is not suitable for powering or charging Laptops because the power output is too dirty.

Battery keeps draining already put in a brand new alletantor and brattery still draining and battery lights comes on and truck won't start


You would have checked the charging system before replacing the alternator, so I will assume the charging system is good.
If the battery is being discharged overnight or over a few days, you would need to disconnect it and check every circuit on the truck to find the drain.

I have just bought the acer aspire 5750 and had it for 2 days. I have just realised that my battery is not charging it says '0% available (plugged in, not charging)'. I have taken out the battery and


Exit windows and shut it down.
Leave it plugged in and it will start charging.
There is no need to charge the battery when in use as it knows it is connected to the mains power and only charges when shut down.

I bought a Ryobl Power Drill 14.4volt last week at a D.I.Y. store and have found when charging the batteries the light on the charger is Yellow. In the instruction manual they only mention Red when...


yellow usually indicates a HOT battery and is waiting for a cool down before recharging or it can mean a defective battery/charger. If you just bought this unit I would take it back for warranty replacement.

My battery light turned on. I checked the altenator. It was fine so I bought a brand new battery, but the light turned back on the next day? What else can be causing the battery light to turn on?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I just bought a new laptop yesterday and when i plug in the chager it dont chager it said plugged in not charging so idk what to do thankxs


On the front of the laptop or near the screen you should see a light that shows one color for when it is running on battery and another when it is charged. Usually yellow when charging and green when charged.

As well when you boot into windows near the clock you will see either a battery when using the battery, a plug with a lightening bolt when charging and just the plug when you are 100% charged.

In your user manual you should find a few picture that show and explain where and what all the light or indicator mean. If you go under control panel ot right click the icon near the clock then you get into the power panel.

If you are new to laptops it is a good idea to have the manual open and go over everything to familiarize yourself with what and where. Then you will avoid what I did when I first bought a laptop and couldn't get the wireless to work. If only someone had read manual and saw where the switch was ;-] Enjoy your laptop once you get used to things they are hard to be without.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.
