Battery dies quickly/ device shuts off randomly

I will charge my battery for hours and it says battery full, however the battery dies within a half hour. Also, sometimes the device shuts off on its own and when i try to turn it back on it loads to the main screen and quickly says "bye" and shuts back off. The only way i get it to turn back on is by plugging it in.

7th generation iPod nano won't hold a decent charge.

Hi Sarah!

It is actually a common problem with devices that feature rechargeable batteries. The solution is to condition your battery. Once it is showing a 100% charge, disconnect and do not charge it again until the iPod completely shuts off and will not turn back on. Plug it back up to the charger and repeat. This will condition the battery to "know" when it is full and when it is not. Leaving it charging all day conditions the battery into "thinking" that it must stay charging or it is empty.

Hope it helps!

Keeps restarting itself

Sadly, some batteries will wear-out within a certain amount of months, and some may go even greater lengths until they will require replacement. This is one thing many people may not know when they are charging their device: Devices that use internal rechargeable batteries also use extra memory to know the charge limit point. So if you charge your the battery the device must know when to stop so the battery wont over heat and be damaged. This memory used to charge your battery can also be confused and malfunction, so that the device wont get proper power supply from the battery. This malfunction will usually occur when you plug in your device and use it at the same time or if you charge your device at random moments instead of letting it get to it's lowest power point then charging it again. I suggest that you let the device die fully, then let it rest for a few days, then while you charge it, have it off instead of on, that way the charge wont interfere with the screen info and let it charge as long as it is said to take on the manual that came with the device. If this fails, try 2 more times,if no luck after, have the company change your battery, dont try to change it yourself if it's bulit in, because some batteries require soldering a similar technique to welding something together, you can do this your self if trained, but you may also void a warranty if you have one with the device. If you'd like anymore info on your device leave a message for us at Game-Shabang official on Facebook, thank you

My Archos 605 will turn on for a second and then turns itself off

Sounds like the battery is fried or that the system has interpreted that the battery is fried.. Have you tried a 15 second reset. Stick a pin in the reset hole along the bottom for 15 secs (or longer) to allow full discharge and reset. Recharge immediately for about 4 hours with the system completely shut down (press on/off button 15 seconds until blank). If there is still a problem try for a long reset again. If it does boot check the battery condition and how long it takes to die. Once a battery decides its had enough they can go quite quickly and die completely. Do you run the Archos whist it is in the dock or while the charger is plugged in it, I have found that running current through the battery like this can shorten the battery life considerably. I tend to charge fully and then discharge fully, for some reason this keeps the battery fit and allows the system that monitors the battery to have an accurate appraisal of it's true condition.

I have a Sansa View 8gb and the battery would die like within like 3-5 hours but when I connect it to my computer and go to properties I found that it was charged 84% what should I do about it?

What you need to do is let your player die. Then after it is dead keep turning it off and turning it on till it stops responding. This will run the player out of all battery charge. Then you will keep turning it on so that you can deplete the battery charge that your player sets up as a backup power. Then you need to plug it into your computer and let it charge all night. This will reset the player battery memory so that you can have full charge again. If this does not work your battery might be going out and you should look into either replacing it or investing into another mp3 player.
