Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

Only turns on when plugged in, and won't charge battery

It will only turn on when i plug it in. And when it does turn on it brings up the sing that says "your batter is ALMOST empty" and shuts down after thirty seconds. It does this whether or not the battery is in, and it will not charge the battery either. Is there something i can do besides taking it in?

    but wait, even if it's plugged in wouldn't i be able to use it even if the battery is not in it, since it would be running off the charger?

Hi.

If the battery is already used up... becoming dead, it cannot be charged no matter what you do, the only remedy is to change it with a new battery and your problem is solve... it will be as good as a new one....

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

Battery is fully charged, but netbook won't turn on unless plugged in.


I would say that you definitely need to purchase a new netbook battery. If it's only turning on when plugged in, then the battery itself doesn't have any more charge cycles.

My camera won't turn on i charged it and now it won't turn on!


This truly depends on the make and model of your camera. If it uses a rechargeable pack, make sure to fully charge the battery and try it. If this still doesn't work, try plugging it in the computer via USB. If it turns on, then your battery pack may be causing the problem. I would suggest you to bring it to your nearest service center for them to check it out, especially if you still have warranty and so they can replace the battery pack. Some cameras have a reset button at the very bottom (or look into your camera's manual if there is such a thing for your camera) which could be an option as well.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Only turns on when plugged in, and won't charge battery


you could try changing the battery to see if it the battery is faulty if it does not seem to be the battery that is faulty then i suggest bringing it in as it may be something to do with the charging port on the treo
