Either the charging circuit is faulty, or the battery has drained and the safety circuit has disabled it. If you have a warranty send it back, if not, take it apart and try charging the battery from an external 5v source. Do not leave it this way for more than a half hour as it will overheat and could explode.

After it's gotten a bit of a charge (if you have a voltmeter check that it's over 3.7 volts) put it back in the player and it should start up. Now try charging it the regular way. If it doesn't charge further then the charge circuit is damaged. Try a cell phone repair center, they should be able to help.

When the walkie on full charge the charge light is not going to off ?


Hi,

If your battery is flat or close to, then a complete charge is ussually 23 hours. or thereabout, so this is why the light on your charger is still on. The light for a flat battery is red and when the battery is fuuly charges light is green.

8 hours of charging a flat battery, isn't enough, hence the light staying on RED, if I'm not wrong and I doubt that I am.

I hope this has answered your query.

Best regards,
Peter

The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

My battery died on the Nokia 6790 Ive been charging the phone for over 3 hours and only the keyboard lights up when i hold the "on" button but the screen doesnt turn on


Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.


The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

I have a audiovox dvd player model D1998PK. I need to know how to tell when the battery is charged.


1. A blinking light indicates that the battery is not charging.
2. The steady light goes out (or turns green) when the battery is charged.
3. 6 to 8 hours for the initial charge.
4. Charging time after the initial charge depends on the length of time the battery was used and will increase over time as the battery gets older.
5. 2.25 hours of play time

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.
