Charging the c250

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to charge my c250 without the display light constantly on. I remember doing it once by accident, but I can not re-call what I did.

If someone knows how to do this it'd be greatly appreciated if you could share your knowledge with me.

Plug the MP3 player into your computer with the USB cord. Press and hold the power (menu) button for about 5 or 6 seconds. The screen should turn off.

When the battery is charging the light blinks orange, is it charging? Before I remember it being a constant light.

The orange light will be on when charging, but blinking could indicate a problem with charger itself. Does it ever turn green? have you tried a multimeter, you can get a cheap one at harbor freight and see what voltage it being sent from the charger. Does the battery seem to be charging? Amazon is the best place to replace it if you need to....if the battery isnt recharging, i woulod just do that.

My Sansa c250 won't charge properly. Initially when I bought it, I used it with a Windows XP PC, no sweat. That computer died and I began charging it with an OSX instead. It worked for a while, but after a...

I had a similar problem. My Sansa c250 would charge, when plugged into the computer. It would read that it was writing but the computer did not recognized that the Sansa c250 was connected. I switched to a different USB port and got the same results. I then realized that the two ports I was using were 1.0 port and idmedeatly when inserted in the 2.0 port it began charging and the computer recongized the Sansa c250. I know this won't solve every charging problem one may have. Changing the battery would be easier in some cases. Especially if they were sold like the AA or AAA.

Charging the battery over the winter

Hi there. Float charging the battery is a great idea over winter. You should always remove a battery from your bike or vehicle before charging. They produce hydrogen gas (EXPLOSIVE!!) and can easily ignite if a spark is generated (from the battery charge connection) . I have seen this happen before!! I would be using a constant voltage type regulated float charger to keep it topped up. Unless you can set up the constant current type you mention for a few milliamps of charge only. If you charge it at too high a rate, with constant current, it will overcharge the battery and boil it dry. Float charge voltage of 13.5-13.8 is good for any lead acid battery. Check it every few weeks initially to be sure that it is not loosing electrolyte. Thanks for using FixYa.

HTC Touch Display lights constantly on while music playback ... Please Help

the screen display remains on if you're listening to music on the speakers. i've tried many things but couldn't overcome it. the only thing you could do is use the headphone to listen to the music. you can then put the device to sleep mode without interrupting the music.
