What is the problem when the car is just sitting overnight and there's no power on anything the next day?


When you are sure you have a good battery and the voltage regulator works fine, I should think there is something eating power during the time you switched off. Years and years ago sometime a car radio was connected wrong and would not switch off when the contact was off. Now you should disconnect the battery when you switched of and use a huge ampere meter DC to see if and if so what current is "leaking" away If there is no current, then check the barrery and the voltage regulator.

First check the wiring to the battery, especially the ground wire to the starter. Because these are side mount batteries (normally), acid sometimes leaks onto the wires beneath the battery holder and can eat them away. Next, check the starter itself to see if you can (with the help of a buddy) hear or see the bendix engage. The starter is basically spring loaded so the gears come out and engage the engine when you turn the key and energize the starter. These are the two most common problems.

Hi, my bb9000 consumes battery very fast please advice what should i do in this regard?


Instructions
    • 1 Turn off your wireless and Bluetooth when they are not in use. If you leave your wireless settings on, your phone is constantly looking for a wireless connection, even if one isn't readily available. This eats up battery power. Touch "Manage Connections" from your home screen and select "Off" for wireless connection. Then turn your wireless on when you know a connection is available.
    • 2 Close applications when you're finished using them. Leaving applications running uses memory and battery power, especially if those applications send you frequent notifications, like Facebook. Once you're done using an application, use the Blackberry button and select "Close" at the bottom of the menu to close the app completely and avoid notifications until you open the app again.
    • 3 Use your applications wisely. If you're running short on battery life, it may not be a good time to run Google Maps or other applications that use a lot of battery power. In general, battery-consuming applications are those the need a constant internet or data connection and cause you to receive frequent notifications.
    • 4 Change your vibrate notifications so that they occur less frequently, and use audio notifications when you can. Vibration actually uses more battery life than a ring tone. While you may need to put your phone on vibrate when you need to use your phone discreetly, shortening the amount of vibration notifications you get can conserve battery life. Choose "Options" from your home screen, and then "Sounds and Ringtones." Choose "Ringtones" from the drop down menu and select the type of ringtone you want. To decrease the volume of your vibration -- and therefore the power you use -- press the volume buttons on the side of the phone when the phone is in vibrate mode.
    • 5 Decrease the backlight timeout, which keeps the keys on your Bold lit for a specified amount of time after you stop using them. The shorter the timeout, the less battery power you'll waste. Visit "Options" from your home screen and then choose "Screen/Keyboard." Adjust the backlight settings so you only have three to five second before timeout and the backlight shuts off. You can also use the settings to dim the backlight to use less power.

Battery problem


Try upgrading the firmware on it. It depends mostly on what you are using on the device. If you do a lot of data-centric things like constant emailing, surfing the web, YouTube, etc. then you are going to use more battery. Applications running in the background also eat up battery life to keep active. Bluetooth uses more battery compared to using the phone itself. Lots of texting eats up battery life as well, both incoming and outgoing. Wi-Fi eats up battery like there is no tomorrow on just about any device. The TouchFlo 3D interface also uses more battery due to the graphics acceleration. You can turn off the TouchFlo interface to save battery power and go back to the regular Today screen. The device was tested for battery life with TouchFlo enabled however so that's more of an icing on the cake type of change for more power.

You may also want to try deep cycling the battery to see if that helps. Run the battery completely dead so it won't turn on the device anymore. The let it charge for 10-12 hours without the device on. That should cycle the battery and recalibrate the meter.

There are many diffferent reasons you could have lower battery life, it's always different for different people. HTC managed to keep the Touch Pro's battery life around the same as the Mogul even with the graphics acceleration and everything running. So simply turning off TouchFlo will probably increase total battery life by a bit.

you could upgrade to a higher MAH battery too.

My Dell RT7D40 won't sync with my computer. do i need a CD? my computer is old and doesn't have a sync button on the back. does this affect my keyboard?


Blue tooth is notorious for not working. Your best bet for a worry-free life with your computer, is do not use wireless kbd or mouse. sincerely, they are all hype, and no real benefits come from their use. Youd be better off using USB extension cables to reach into those odd places rather than spending hours and hours of time trying to get something to work, only to discover that as soon as windows updates itself, it has failed and, (once again) you have no kb or ms control and the computer is just sitting there waiting on you to do something, but you cant. wireless kb and mice are a pain, and they eat batteries like pac man eats dots.

Phone shut itself down, won't come back on


how old is the phone and more specifically, the battery? rechargeable batteries, unfortunately, do not last forever. i used to have a phone that didn't need charging for days. over time (a few years), i had to charge every night.

will it turn on while plugged in? if so, then it's probably the battery.

Please help with my Motorazr


You should get some silica gel packets (the small packets that say "do not eat" and come in boxes of new shoes, or purses) - take the phone apart as much as you can without damaging it and put the phone and the silica packets in a sealed plastic bag and let it sit as long as you can. The silica will pull the moisture out of the phone. I've heard rice works for this as well.
