SOURCE: My Toshiba laptop model A215-S4807 will not hold a charge

Hello. It might be a problem with the charging set. If you took another charger and it did not work it is from your mainboard.

SOURCE: Strange ac cord/power issues

Hello my friend, Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you

Computer did work then shut off will not come back on why?


I think that you need to charge your computer every once in a while. The battery goes dead when you use it a lot, see the battery icon on your computer? when it is full it will look like a full battery but when it is getting almost out of gas charge it and it will work fine again I promise.

Greetings Gurus. I have Makita charger model DC18RC, battery model is 18v BL1815...manual is of limited help. I'm trying to understand what the indicator lights mean, what the time is for charging,


I agree that the pictographs are not very helpful. You probably have one of the new chargers. I have an old one, which is a little easier to figure out.

From top to bottom

1. The flashing green light with the electric plug indicates that the unit is plugged in and ready to go.
2. The flashing red little fan means that the battery is too warm so it is just cooling it and not charging it at that moment.
3. The solid red empty battery outline means that it is charging but hasn't got very far, less than 80% full.
4. The mostly full battery outline with both solid red and green lights at the same time means it is 80% full or more
5. The full battery outline and solid green with the musical notes means it is full up.
6. The broken battery outline with flashing red and green means you've got a broken battery.
7. The yellow light with the wrench means the charger is "conditioning" the battery, whatever that means.
8. The yellow light with the fan means "cooling abnormality."

Hope this helps

Dell precision m6300 battery won't charge.


You say it's a new battery. Is the battery the same EXACT spec? Some aftermarket batteries don't work well with your laptop. The pin-out/connections may be incompatible. That said, in your BIOS is there a "Battery Learning" section.

Not sure if player is charging


QUESTION ONE:
Can you see it in "My Computer"? It will show under "Removable Drive/Storage"

QUESTION TWO:
Double click the removable drive to open the folders. Can you see your music, photo and movie folders?

QUESTION THREE:
Can you see the player in Coby Manager - under the "DEVICE" tab?

QUESTION FOUR:
When disconnected from the computer, how long can you listen to the Coby player before it goes off?

If not present in My Computer or in Coby Manager/Device Tab, then it is not plugged in correctly.
a. Disconnect the player from the computer.
b. Wait for it to cycle through "Please Wait" and "Updating Library" screens.
c. Make sure the player is TURNED OFF
d. With player TURNED OFF, reconnect wire to the player then to the computer.
e. You will see a USB connector icon on the player screen and the player charging.

It will appear to be charging all the while it is connected to the computer.
After it has been plugged into the computer for an hour, it should be well charged unless the battery is completely run down. In that case, you need to do an initial 8 hour charge - with the coby player OFF - through the computer. (This one got me when I first got my player!)

f. Use the Coby Manager to disconnect the player (Found HERE CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

1. Open Coby Manager
2. Go to the DEVICE TAB
3. CLICK on EJECT Button in lower right hand corner.
4. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
5. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system."
6. Disconnect the player from the computer.
7. The Coby will now show "Please Wait..."
8. It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the "Please Wait" screen and then on the "UPDATE the Library" screen - Be PATIENT

You should now have enough battery power to use it. To check the battery level,

1. Turn on the player
2. The battery icon is in the upper right hand corner of the screen - it is ALWAYS RED until it starts to go down... I've not had mine down very far, but believe the red line gets shorter as the battery is wearing down.

Hope this helps.

1: Plug your iPod into your computer.

2: Hold the power button and the menu button (underneath screen) down simultaneously until the screen goes black, then shows the Apple logo again. Then release the buttons.

3: Wait for five to fifteen minutes until your computer plays a "chime" sound. The iPod should then show the "locked" screen with the battery logo, and you should be good to go. You will probably want to resync your media to your iPod at this point, and make sure it's charged.

My Dell C840 Latitude has a 1.8Ghz processer but when I checked system it says it's only running 789 Mhz. Is my processer going bad?


Go Into Control Panel, select Power Options, and change Power Scheme from Laptop/Laptop to Home/Office Desk. Make sure you have AC Adapter plugged in and your should now be using all of CPU. Check System icon from Control Panel to confirm. CPU usage may show as less when laptop is booted from battery power only.

The battery may show "full' but still not hold a charge, so that when you unplug it from your computer, it goes dead. I assume you hold down the power button for several seconds and it still doesn't power up? Most likely, you battery is defective.

Battery not recharging


All batteries die sooner or later. I believe you have a dead cell.

1) Find another machine that uses the same battery and try it or
2) try another battery or
3) Give up and buy a new battery.

Good luck.
