Sounds like you have an exhausted battery. If the laptop works with the power unit, the power supply/charger is OK.
Don't forget, the battery has to be a Sony battery. It won't work otherwise!

SOURCE: Vaio Laptop does not keep charge

Try a different known good battery to see if it charges up and if that doesn't work then its a problem with the motherboard.

SOURCE: Sony Viao laptop just started shutting itself down

Disconnect external devices. Remove battery and power cord. Then reposition them again. Be sure battery is locked with the switch at the bottom of the unit. Keep charger connected. If issue continues it may require service.
If you can see VGN-CS on the upper left corner of the lid (your unit's model number) you will need to call Sony as this is a known issue

SOURCE: My battery wont charge but it says its charging. When I unplug the cord 3 times itll go up by 1%

Have you tried replacing the battery? It sounds like the charger circuit is attempting to charge the battery and the battery is not accepting the charge.

Room a 620 keeps stopping


It could be clogged with hair (when was the last time you cleaned it out?), it could be the battery isn't holding a charge any longer. It could be getting caught on something . How long is it running before stopping? I found I used to get about a two hour run from my Roomba, before the red light flashed. Then I started to unplug the charger and Roomba when it had a full charge and it wasn't needed. I noticed that after this the Roomba didn't run as long, maybe one hour, before needing a charge again. I leave it plugged in all the time now.

Dirt devil doesn[t hold charge


Try running the battery all the way down by letting the vacume run in a corner or another room and even when it stops leave it on for a hour to drain the battery. Then shut the switch off and try charging the battery. Make sure the charger is putting out enough volts by looking at the rated output of the charger and while it is plugged in check it with a volt meter. If it does not hold a charge and the charger is putting out the right voltage you need to purchase a new battery for the vacume

Kind of vague. It could be the port on your laptop where the charger plugs into. It could be bad, or could have a bad connection to the motherboard due to use or manufacturing defect. When the charger stops charging then it has to use the battery power. This morning the battery may have had a low charge causing the laptop to shut down. Did you notice the battery's power level before it shut down? If you are wiggling the end of the charger that is plugged into your laptop to get it to start charging again, then that is most likely your problem. Do not wiggle it , for it could fry your motherboard. If that is the case then that port needs to be re-soldered.

I just bought a new battery charger cable called (Sealed Lead-Acid Charger) to replace an older (Lead Acid battery charger). The New Battery charger will charge for about 2 to 5 minutes and then stop...


ismail the charger you bought should do the job. By stop charging do you mean the light on the charger turns from yellow to green? Your scooter has small batteries 12/12 and don't require along period of charging. Now the scooter has a heat sensor for the batteries and will cut off charging when temp of the batteries gets too high. The older charger could have overcharged your batteries and made them weaker instead of stronger. I would suggest you replace the batteries (2 12/12AH) and charge them with the new charger. Remember to reinstall the heat sensors on each battery when replacing. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 v dc and put the leads into the 2 outer plugs in the charger port on the battery pack. You should read 24-26 volts dc when the batteries are fully charged anything less would mean weak batteries. Hope this helps you

My phone will not hold a charge at all. I've taken the battery out, let it set, put it back in for a few minutes and still no charge. The longest the phone lasts without dying is 10 minutes


Hello

Remove the battery and test it with a similar phone to ee if it will hold charges, if it does, it means the battery is good, but if otherwise change the battery.

Next place to look at is the charging port, check with a similar battery and charger to see if it will charge, if it doesnt, change the charging port.

Also test your charger with another similar phone to see if it will charge, if it does, it means the charger is good.

Best regards.
