Lenovo z570 not powering on


Measure the voltage at the AC Adapter plug, and see if it is within 5-10% of the rated voltage. If the voltage is not correct, then the battery will most likely not be charging, and the system will drain the battery and die in the middle of what it was doing...booting in your case.

You can tell how much voltage is remaining in your battery and if it is charging by checking the blinking of the battery status light.
Download the Hardware Maintenance Manual here:
http://download.lenovo.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User%27s%20guides%20and%20manuals/Z370&Z470&Z570/Lenovo%20Z370Z470Z570%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual%20V1.0.pdf
and go to page 30 and look at item 7 under battery status for blinking light meaning.
1. Blinking amber: (500ms off/1s on)
The remaining power of the battery is less than 5% of
its capacity.
2. Blinking amber: (100ms off/3.2s on)
The battery is being charged with the remaining
power between 5% and 20% of its capacity.
3. Amber: The computer is operating on battery power with the
remaining power between 5% and 20% of its
capacity


With the AC Adapter plugged in, and giving the correct voltage, If you are getting 1. Blinking Amber (light on for 1 sec, off for 1/2 second), then the battery is not being charged. Could be AC Adapter, Battery or Battery Circuit on motherboard. If the light is solid on 3. Amber, then the battery is not charging, and is draining.

Also make sure the power socket on the laptop is not loose or damaged. If it is, then it will need to be replaced.

I hope this gets you in the right direction.

Battery wont charge


As in the first part of the manual is explained, when you have inserted the battery correct and you then plug in the charger, the charger light should go on. When the light is out, the battery is charged. When the light blinks, your battery is fault.
When the light does not go on, when you plug it in a power outlet, the battery is not inserted correct, or the contacts are dirty.
If you want to clean the contacts, please only use a dry cloth. Never us a sharp tool. It would damage the contacts bend repair.
Even when you plug in the charger, with a fully loaded battery, the light should go on for only a few moments.
Make sure the power outlet works normally. and the power cable is not defect.

It has been sent back to Fuji who say it's fine have put durcell in it and left it to charge but with no batteries in put batteries in it left it and turned it on after 1 hr and 30 mins and it still wopn't...


At this point you can only trust Fuji that they are correct in what they are saying in that the camera is fine which leaves only the power source you are using. I'm a bit confused as to what you have written. You said you put Duracell in it and left it to charge. To my knowledge and I may be reading this incorrectly it appears to me you are installing batteries in the camera and possibly hooking up the USB download cable expecting the camera to charge the batteries. The camera has no charging capabilities and rechargeable batteries need to be charged in a separate device made specifically for this function. I also know that some chargers come with a clear plastic guard over the + (positive) terminals and if you do not remove this plastic part there is no way the batteries can be charges. The charging lights come on and will remain on but no charge will enter the batteries. Maybe a quick test would be if you have a flashlight that takes AA batteries you place them in there and turn the flashlight on. Once you have confirmed that there is battery power then insert the batteries into the camera make sure they are in the correct placement (orientation)
Here is a picture of the correct battery placement.

This diagram is found on page 13 of your owners manual

Another diagram I'm including is what the camera will show as the battery state of charge.
This is found on page 15

I sincerely hope this helps

Laptop battery is not charging


Hi, this information represents a basic troubleshooting guideline. Refer to your user guide for specific charging and connection instructions. Manuals may be available online in the Support Web site of HP.

Remove the battery from the computer.
Confirm the battery contacts are free of any foreign material that may prevent charging.
Reinsert the battery into the computer.
Verify that the AC adapter cord is properly connected and plugged directly into a known working AC power outlet.

NOTE: If the battery charges correctly when the AC adapter is plugged directly into an AC power outlet, but not when plugged into a power strip or surge protector, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the computer battery or AC adapter.

Verify the correct AC adapter is being used.
Ensure the AC adapter box power light is on. This will be an illuminated green light.
If the AC adapter power light is not on, the AC adapter and power cord will need to be replaced.
Verify the charging indicator is illuminated on the computer.
If the issue still exists, install a different compatible HP battery, if available.

NOTE: If a replacement battery charges and operates correctly, the problem is with the first battery.

If neither the original nor a replacement battery charges, service may be required for the computer.

I fitted new batterys, now the joystick is reading low battery but no responce from the joystick.the batterys are wired red to red and black to black does the chair turn this to 24v itself, theres no...


Will you don't say what chair you have and they can all be wired differently. Look under the shroud that covers your batteries and see if there isn't a wiring diagram there. If you let me know the brand ie: Pride Jazzy, Invacare M51 etc. I can give you the proper wiring for the batteries. Now you also didn't say if you charged the batteries after you installed them. Remember always charge before use. Just because they are new doesn't mean they are charged (in fact they could have sat on the shelf for a while). Make sure that they are no older than 4 months old even new batteries can be bad. Charge these puppies overnite. When you plug in the charger you should see a red and yellow light after charging overnite you should see a red and green light( indicating full charge) If when you plug the charger in you get a red and green light then something isn't wired correctly. Hope this helps

Flashing red light batt. fully charged


Flashing red light usually means low batteries. Check the batteries after charging all night with a volt meter through the charger port you should read 26-24 volts dc. If you get a lower reading and you are sure the charger is working correctly then you will need to replace both batteries Hope this helps

My battery on lm70 express laptop only charges to 70%.fitted new but same problem.charged in another comp.and charged fine.


How do you know that it has charged to 70% and it is the correct percentage on your Laptop?May be you need some other program that are available on the internet that will tell you the exact charge percentage. Make note that In many ways, lithium-ion is superior to nickel and lead-based chemistries and the applications for lithium-ion batteries are growing as a result. Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge / discharge patterns.Removing the battery from the laptop when running on fixed power protects the battery from heat. Make sure the AC Adapter that you are using [on both laptops] is supplying the correct voltage and if possible check with Load.

Travelmate only powers up with battery inserted. But AC still charges battery. Orange light goes on and of


Sorry to tell you this but you may have a problem with the charging system. That will require you to return it to Acer or an Acer service center. You can also try this. I got this from Acers' travelmate support website:

If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
You can aslo google your specific model of Travelmate to see if others are having this issue.

Just purchased a panasonic dmc tz5 and charged the battery and camera wont work.


What do you mean 'won't work'. Won't power on?

If it won't power on and camera and battery is new. I would suspect batterry or charger fault to begin with, assuming you know the outlet socket you charged it in is good. Charger should have green light on while charging batt for about 3 hours.

If you have a voltmeter, outside terminals of charged battery should read about 3.7 to 4Volts. Also be sure battery is installed correctly. Don't belive it can be reversed, but not sure.

Hope this helps.
