Hitachi UC 18YG charger Pilot light flashing all the time

Hi there, I have exactly this problem. Pilot lamp is out till put the battery in, then the light flashes 0.5 seconds on and off. Never stays on or go off continually. I checked the fuses are in tact, no burn marks, however some residue on the mirror?silver plates which I cleaned of but didn't make difference. The batteries do charge though, but if left over night without charger or use they discharge totally. Do i need new batteries or is there something on with the charger?

I have batteries and charger uc 18yrl will they fit most Hitachi drills that are a few year's old??

probably not
older chargers were made for ni-cad batteries and now they are li- ion batteries which require a different charger
to distinguish the difference , most manufacturers changed the battery pack design
talk with a battery retailer or a good tool shop or appliance repair shop

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

TY-LA1001 Timer reset

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Problem with hitachi chargers

I live by hitachi, one of the good things about it is lowes will exchange them as long as you have a receipt and it's under 30 days. If not chargers are not very expensive, or you can send it back for repairs. I have 10 of those combo packs and never had a problem with a single one, for you to get 2 is a freak accident.

Hitachi cordless drill charger not working

The various rates of flashing are error indicator codes and should be explained on the charger case. They are for the condition of the battery's though and not the charger. It sounds like the charger itself is bad. Can you return it for a replacement? Is it still in Warranty? For whats its worth, I went from Milwaukee tools to Bosch to De Walt before being satisfied with performance. I hope this helps.

How do i remove the black box on my screen

don't have the original remote control, I used the time warner control, I just reprogramed to control my tv without the cable box, I put the volume all the way up in the tv, then down to zero, and at the same time I hold the 0 key in the remote control, after that the screen said lamp has been reset to zero, I repeated this step because a lamp red light stayed on, after this only the power green light only stays, when installing the new lamp make sure is all the way in, you can use the white out to mark exactly where you have to push or put in the new lamp, it may not been all the way in, hope this help someone !!

We have bought a battery charger HB 1206S DC6V - 12V 6AMP, but it does not state what is the state of charge do the lightes go out when it has reached changed state or light up please help

Product Detail Model No.: HB-1206S
The item is used for charging 6V-12V lead-acid batteries
Max Charging Current: 6A
AC Power Input: 64W
Output: 6/12V DC 3. 52A
Batteries Capacities: 15AHR-80AHR
Unit Packing: Colorful box
Dimension: 18cm x 10cm x 20cm
G. W. / N. W.: 1. 85KG/1. 75KG
Certifications: GS, CE, BS, ROHS, SAA

Main functions:
(1) The HB-1206S battery charger has the features of convenient operations, reliable safety and high performance.
(2) During charging, if turn up overload, the battery charger will keep itself at normal current and normal voltage with its self-automatic protecting function.
(3) If being short circuit, the battery charger will switch off itself, and turn normal after one or two minutes.
(4) The output current of the battery charger is very stationary, so it can protect the battery charger very well. It only costs 3 or 4 hours to fully charge the batteries.
(5) Indication of charging: the battery charger has 6 pilot lamps. The more pilot lamps shining, the less electric quantity is. The charging process finishes when all the pilot lamps go out.
(6) The battery charger can be switched between 6V and 12V, so it can charge for 6V and 12V accumulators. You can select 6V or 12V according to your own needs.
(7)The operations are very convenient: Put the red clip to the positive pole of the accumulator which indicated "+", and put the black clip to the negative pole of the accumulator which indicated "-", then plug in power source, the accumulator will be charged.
