Hello there, so very sorry to hear about the troubles you are having.

There are a few possibilities of what could be wrong with the device. The first, and simplest, would be to reboot the unit, to do so just take the battery completely out, make sure its unplugged, and let it sit for a few minutes. Put back together and try again. If that doesn't work then it could be that the battery has worn out. Rechargeable batteries over time do wear out, so if it works fine while plugged in, but dies after 5 minutes unplugged then it is very likely that this is the issue. You can purchase replacement batteries either through Radioshack or online by googling apd3911 battery.

If it shuts itself down after 5 - 10 minutes even while being plugged in then you have a more serious issue on your hands. It is most likely a heat and/or voltage problem. It could be a voltage problem causing the heat, a heat problem from something else, or a voltage problem that isn't causing heat but is causing it to short out after a few minutes of use. To verify this you could try running the device with a fan blowing directly on it at full speed, if it stays on any longer than you know that heat is the issue.

If it is either of the last few suggestions then you will need to contact radio shack to find out about possible warranty repairs or replacement. Otherwise unfortunately it looks like the device will have to be replaced =(.

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but hopefully one of the earlier suggestions will fix it up!

Thanks

My Poulan chainsaw starts and works fine for 10 minutes then spiders and quits. Like something in the tank or line. I have had it in the shop. What could be the problem?


i never heard of spiders before. but if it runs for 10 minutes and quits. next time try to loosen the fuel cap. if it picks back up and runs fine replace the fuel cap. it isn't breathing right

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.


a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,

We had the same problem. Since ours was off warranty, I took the back off (several small screws) and lubricated with some fine oil the track (two silver rods about three inches long) upon which the lens slides back and forth. It can be tricky to get it apart and back together again. I also manually slid the lens carrier so that it was in the middle, partway away from the center spindle. Now ours works fine. I think the problem was that the lens carrier doesn't slide very well or gets stuck on the track rods.

This may sound overly simple but try disconnecting the power from the unit (i.e. unplug it from the wall), wait a few minutes and plug it back in, kinda like a hard re-boot.
