Presario 700uk battery issue

Got a 700uk traded to me by a friend for an old ps1.. anyways the battery doesn't hold a charge so was advised to get another.. the replacement doesn't hold one either despite the battery reading 100% in power management. So the thing will only run on ac power. Also the DVD-ROM/CD-RW plays dvd's and runs data CD's but not audio's. Any ideas??

It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totaly shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunatly that those batterys cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more. The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermaket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrison. You can build your own battery fot a a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the litium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks. Follow the below link for a step by step on how to build your own battery As far as the audio problem I would suggest re-istalling the drivers. Good Luck L8R

Battery doesn't hold charge for more than a week

All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)

How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.

Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".

I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

I have a 30gb ipod classic it would not turn on and it keep reading battery very low please wait to replaced the battery and it still saying the same thing my friend said that i need a new logic boad...

> is he right?

Maybe. If the cable that connects to the iPod that you use to recharge the battery is broken, then _NO_ battery (old or new) can get recharged. Borrow a cable from a friend, or connect your iPod to your friend's cable, to see if changing the cable allows the battery to charge.

If that does not help, then your friend could be correct.

Note that some "big-box" stores, such a BEST BUY, will take your iPod as a "trade-in" on a new iPod. Put the old battery back in before you do the trade-in, and sell the new battery on eBay or CraigsList.

Compaq presario battery charging

All you can do is to leave the battery out for a few days or longer. It will completely drain and then you can try charging it back up again. Im suspecting that the battery is starting to go bad anyway but at least this way you can verify this. If it still doesn't charge completely then the battery needs to be replaced.
