Question about IBM G41 Monitor

1 Answer

Can I use the USB cable to charge the battery

Becker Germany say I need the wall adaptor or the cigar lighter yet the manual says I can use the USB cable.

I am in New Zealand but travelling to Europe later this year. They tell me to ring UK but we are 12000 milesa away!

Help please
Ian

PS Once charged, how long should the unit stay charged as we will be away from a car for up to 10 days

All usb cables if you have the correct mini usb end for your phone will charge the battery
now for your next question phone batteries are good for about 60 hours if not used or if just for calls may be 8 hours or if downloading data may be 5 hours
In other words it all depends on the use
the good news is that you can buy from most battery supply shops a small booster battery that will recharge the cell battery up to 4 times and it is about the size of a packet of cigarettes and is designed for what you are doing

SOURCE: new laptop battery not charging

Normally, charging cicuit of the laptop which is part of the Motherboard has the problem. This happens if you keep the old battery installed even if the battery is already futile. Best solution is to bring it to the nearest shop.

Hope this helps.
Please vote if it does. Thanks!

SOURCE: T30 2366 8GA After removing AC Adaptor battery icon shows Charging and working on AC

there is a switch in the plug end to the back of your comp its like a little swinging door that when you unplug out of back of comp this switch engages battery now if you unplug just from wall its going to see these 2 things the doors not shut but i have to keep working so it sets aside the plug still recognizing it of course but running off the battery trying to still find out why the powers not there but the plug is still plugged in and it will continually search until it reaches its falt point of dead battery
its like a battery backup for your system it gets unplug but wants to know where the power is

now in reference to the little swinging door i call it its a power over relay in your comp for some reason its not closing properly to allow battery to run by self
this is usually just a switch that needs adjusted in the motherboard configuration

SOURCE: Defintely getting power, but not switching on.

There are several possibilities. Let's start with the easiest two. First the battery, take it out and try starting up only with the power supply. Then the memory chips. If a memory chip fails it can cause a no start in IBM's. Take the memory out and try it. Then try it, putting them in one at a time. If these don't work, then I'm afraid your problem lies within. Namingly the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip controls the power input, and allows such functions as switching between battery and AC, and battery charging. The pm chip can go without warning, and just because it lights and shows charging doesn't mean this chip hasn't malfunctioned. I've had several IBM's come through my shop that have experienced the same problem you're describing. I've also had them with problems like; it will only power with the battery, won't charge the battery, will charge battery and only run with battery shuts down while charging, only power under AC, etc... all pm chip related issues. Unfortunately, the only solution is motherboard replacement.

SOURCE: z60t laptop won't work with new battery

This could be a couple of things. Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. 1 volt over or under will need a supply replacement. The system could have glitched by being ran with a bad battery. Go to IBM's support site, download the bios or any updated bios version, and flash the bios. If this doesn't correct the problem, then it's going to be a failure with the power management system on the motherboard. You can take it in for a diagnostics to find the exact problem area, but most likely they will tell you motherboard replacement. Motherboard replacement is generally the only option with a failed power management system

I NEED A POWER CORD CHARGER FOR THE 3,000,000 CANDLE POWER HALOGEN SPOTLIGHT. WHERE CAN I FIND ONE


If this is the usual sort of halogen spotlight, it is usually supplied with a mains charger adaptor and a lead to charge it from the car cigar lighter socket.

Both those items are also commonly supplied with a range of car-related rechargeable items, torches, jumpstarters and so forth.
I have several such items and I find the 12 volt lead and mains charging adaptor completely interchangeable between all of them. Rechargeable halogen spotlights generally have a very disappointing battery life of around 20 minutes unless a very expensive professional model is bought.

If it is not a rechargeable type that must be permanently connected to the car cigar lighter, the power cord is usually permanently fixed to the lamp but if it isn't, the cable will need to be substantial enough to carry several amps - something similar to that of perhaps a large coolbox.

VEC012POB Manual


Vector sold to Black & Decker who then sold to Bacchus. The only manual I find with the same number you show is NOT yellow and has no USB connection. It is charged by a 110 volt wall wart charger that plugs into a receptacle on the unit, or a 12 volt cigar lighter cable that plugs into the 12 volt port on the unit. Here's a brochure for the model number you provoided:

Garmin street pilot 330 charging problem


Linda,

You need to check the fuse for both the car's cigar lighter AND the one in the GPS power plug (that goes into the cigar lighter outlet). Both must be good for the GPS to charge and power up.

I don't know if your friends cord worked in you car - or hers - so you're going to have to find out if it is the cord fuse or the car fuse. Since her cord worked on your GPS, start by using HER CORD connected to YOUR GPS in both cars. If it works in her car, but not in yours, check & replace your car's cigar lighter fuse. If or when it works in both cars, disconnect her cable and connect your cable to your GPS again. Connect into your cigar lighter. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't work, disassemble the plug at the end of the GPS cord (cigar lighter end) and check and replace the fuse if blown. You should be good to go at this point.

Please rate this reply if found to be helpful - good luck!

CHARGING MY GARMAN GPE C330. DO I LEAVE THE GARMAN ON OR OFF WHEN CHARGING . THE BATTERY WAS DEAD ON MY WAY BACK FROM MY LAST TRIP.IT WAS OK GOING UP I HAD IT PLUGGED IN TO CIG LIGHTER BUT GARMAN SEND...


Disconnect from cigar lighter and connect to the USB port of your computer or any AC adapter over night. By morning the battery will have recharged and be ready for use. This seems to happen with the GPS is left connected to a vehicle's cigar lighter for an extended period of time. You can do this USB / AC adapter recharge procedure as often as needed.

I hope this helps!

Will not power on


Disconnect the GPS from the car's cigar lighter jack and connect via USB cable directly to your computer's USB port (or use your GPS's AC adapter if included) and allow to charge for 8 hours (or over night).

The over night charge should "refresh" the GPS's battery. You should be able to switch the GPS back on to run off its internal battery at this point. Leaving the GPS constantly connected to the car's power can cause the problem you describe to happen. If it happens again, simply repeat the process.

Good luck!

When i go to charge my kodak M863 camera (in the wall or by USB) the green light flashes and then the red light blinks 3 times. please help this is the first time charging my camera.


You can used the USB cable to charged the camera, But some of the M863 camera will not take charged usign the USB cable., I strongy suggest used the AC adaptor just make sure the AC adaptor is 5V ac adaptor it will only charged using the 5V adaptor., About the flashing green it indicates camera is charging just wait for the solid green light it means it fully charged

You may purchased also a special charger for your battery(KLIC-7001)- cahrer model is K8600-C. i think the price of this charger is around $29.00
