SOURCE: Sony Vega KDF-E5OA10,picture will not come on, tv goes off.

There is a real good chance that the lamp fan is not turning. If you look with a flashlight in the vent on the left side looking at the rear of the set and have someone turn on the unit, see if it spins. if it doesnt, the protect circuit in the tv will not let the set turn on. Replacing the fan will cure the proplem if it is not turning.
Hope this helps,

How long should i charge the headset and how to turn it on


The headset contains a lithium ion rechargeable battery, which should be charged before using the headset for the first time.

System requirements for battery charge using USB

Personal Computer with pre-installed with any of the following operating systems and USB port:
Operating Systems (when using Windows)
Windows® 7
Home Basic / Home Premium / Professional / Ultimate
Windows Vista® (Service Pack 2 or later)
Home Basic / Home Premium / Business / Ultimate
Windows® XP (Service Pack 3 or later)
Home Edition / Professional / Media Center Edition 2004 / Media Center Edition 2005
(when using Macintosh)
Mac OS X (version.10.3 or later)

Charging the headset

  1. Open the cover of the micro-USB port.
Insert the tip of your fingernail in the groove, and open the cover.
  1. Connect the supplied micro-USB cable to the headset, and then connect the other end to a computer.
Make sure that you connect the plug of the micro-USB cable in the direction as shown in the illustration below.
Charging starts when the headset and the computer are connected.
Make sure that the indicator (red) lights up. Charging is completed in about 6 hours* and the indicator (red) goes off automatically.
*Time required to charge the empty battery to its full capacity
Notes
  • If the headset is not used for a long time, the indicator (red) may not light up when you connect the micro-USB cable to charge the headset. In this case, do not disconnect the micro-USB cable from the headset and wait until the indicator (red) lights up.
  • When you close the cover of the micro-USB port after charging the battery, push the catch at the edge (the round part) of the cover into the port compartment.
  1. Catch
Tips
  • If the micro-USB cable is connected to a computer while the headset is turned on, the headset will be turned off automatically.
  • To charge the headset from an AC outlet, use USB Charging AC Power Adaptor* (sold separately). For details, refer to the manuals supplied with the USB Charging AC Power Adaptor.
  • The headset cannot be turned on while charging the battery.
*Refer to the Reference Guide on the recommended adapter.
Caution
If the headset detects a problem while charging, the indicator (red) may turn off, although charging is not complete.
Check for the following causes:
  • Ambient temperature exceeds the range of 5 °C - 35 °C (41 °F - 95 °F).
  • There is a problem with the battery.
    In this case, charge again within the above-mentioned temperature range. If the problem persists, consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes
  • If the headset is not used for a long time, the battery may be quickly depleted, however, after a few recharges, the battery life will improve.
  • Even if you do not intend to use the headset for a long time, charge the battery to its full capacity once every 6 months to maintain its performance.
  • If the headset is not used for a long time, it may take longer to charge the battery.
  • If the life of the built-in rechargeable battery drops to half the normal length, the battery should be replaced. Consult your nearest Sony dealer for replacement of the rechargeable battery.
  • Avoid exposure to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust or mechanical shock. Never leave the headset in a car parked in the sun.
  • If the computer enters into hibernation mode while connected to the headset, charging will not be completed properly. Check the setting of the computer before charging. The indicator (red) will go off automatically even if the computer enters into hibernation mode. Charge the headset again in this case.
  • Use the supplied micro-USB cable only, and connect directly to a computer. Charging will not be completed properly by an indirect connection, such as via a USB hub.

It sounds like your headset has a problem. You need to return it to your retailer for replacement or call the customer service department at Plantronics at 800-544-4660 x5538. Make sure that when you get your replacement headset, that you try to let it charge for a good 3-4 hours prior to using it and that you charge it every night, that way the battery within the headset will last longer.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

I need a new battery (BP-HP550-1 1/2.4V 550mAh) for my sony headset. Regular batteries will work (non-rechargeables and rechargeables) but I found that the cradle will not recharge the rechargables only...


Even though you can use regular AAA batteries (that you would have to replace often), there is a huge convenience factor with using the charging cradle that comes with the Sony headset. A solution I found was that I ordered some 550 mAh AAA batteries through Ebay (they came from England and cost me $8 total for four batteries). To make them work in the Sony headset you MUST use the bottom part of the plastic battery holder piece (all you need to do is peel off the BP-HP550-11 label and the bottom half of the plastic battery holder piece slips off of the Sony batteries). Then just slip in the new AAA batteries into the plastic battery holder bottom and then insert into the headset. The reason why you must use the bottom of the battery holder plastic piece is because the plastic piece pushes on a little switch. This switch activates the charging mechanism to enable the cradle charger to charge the batteries.

NOTE: I am not an electronics expert so I do not know if there would be any problem using other rechargeable AAA batteries (with higher mAh ratings). So I decided to be safe than sorry and ordered the 550 mAh batteries through Ebay.

Praktica slimpix battery doesn't charge,usb connections ok,green light comes on on camera,but goes out as soon as i disconnected usb lead.


That is correct. The camera does not recharge the batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries then you also need a compatible battery charger for the batteries you are using.
