SOURCE: RECHARGEABLE BATTERY IS NOT HOLDING A RECHARGE

This sounds like you have a battery that has gone bad. If this is the case then it is possible that your local dealership can sell you a new battery. If they can't then try searching for the battery number on ebay or another website that sells batteries.

My laptop won't hold a charge. have a new battery


Is the battery a genuine Dell battery? 3rd party batteries can be high quality or crap, just depends on the maker. Regardless, when you attempt to charge it, does it at least take a charge even though it won\'t hold it? Or does the battery refuse to accept a charge at all? When you plug in your laptop, does the charge light come on? Does the the battery level icon on the lower-right corner of the screen show it\'s plugged in? I know, lots of questions.

Sony pcg-81114L power supply not detected


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

The low battery light remains on after I changed the battery,


Hello
There are two possibilities for this fault. The first one is with its battery itself. If the battery did not hold current, in otherwords, it has weak, proper charge both in volts and amperes won't hold on it, and when the device draw current from it while it works, voltage drop will occur, and low voltage indication will be displayed.
The second chance is due to the charger circuit inside the radio. If charger circuit do not give proper voltage and current to battery, the battery won't charge to its full capacity.
Check it by replacing it with a new battery [batteries] first. If it helps you it's OK. If not, your radio need service, and its charger circuit must be checked well. OK.

It wont charge consistently. In other words, its plugged in and the batter icon only shows a partial charge.

Low battery icon on, won't recharge


Hi. If you do some research, you will find that this is a common issue with the Harmony One remote. I suggest using an elastic band to hold the remote firm onto the charger. That works for me.

When I push the PTT button, one umit shows a blinking battery and then the uit shuts off after 15 seconds. I have the User Manual and no where does it describe a blinking battery icon. Any help?


I should think the battery on the blinking radio is not holding its charge, change the batteries over between radio and see if the other one then start to blink if it does then you will have to get a new battery

Model LXT 300 FRS/GMRS RADIO


Hi,

There could be three (3) reasons why the display shows the battery icon at the top left side of the LCD display:
1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries;
2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or
3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.

Corrective measures would require:
a. replace/recharge batteries. The rechargeable batteries need at least 12 hours of charging time;
b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder;
c. (on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.

On the other hand, if the "low" is the "L" icon at the bottom right side of the display, this would indicate that the radio's transmit power setting (H/L - high/low). Transmit power level can only be changed in Channels 1-7 & 15-22. The radio will also auto change to lo power when batteries are weak.To switch to high power, press on the Menu button thrice or till "Pr" icon shows, press on the up/down to select H or L. To save & exit, momentary press the PTT.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies


Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
