There's a "slide-away" coverv on the bottom of the laptop, where the docking-station's adapter would connect. Manually slide the cover, and inspect to ensure that there's nothing stuck there that is "tricking" the laptop into claiming that it is docked.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???


Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

I have a T2+ remote sys and need a manual. as a start I need to know how to charge.


The remote comes with a charging dock, if you did not get this you can order one from RTI (952) 253-3136.

BATTERY AND DOCKING STATION
The T2+ uses a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. This battery does not exhibit any type of "Memory Effect" from being charged too often. Since the T2+ can safely be charged after each use, a docking station is included for convenience. If left out of the docking station, the T2+ will remain in sleep mode for 1 or 2 months before shutting down. At that point the battery must be recharged. The T2+ Docking Station can be placed on a flat surface such as a shelf or table, or it can be mounted to a wall using the mounting holes on the back of the unit. If the T2+ battery capacity is reduced to approximately one hour of remaining run-time, a low battery icon will appear in the upper left corner of the display The docking station LED illuminates to indicate a charge in progress. The LED will turn off when the battery in the unit is fully charged.A fully discharged battery will take approximately 2-4 hours to completely re-charge.The T2+ can remain in the docking station indefinitely without damage to the battery.

Remove Any Docking Stations or Port Replicators From the Computer Note: Docking stations and port replicators are optional equipment. If you are unsure if you have a docking solution attached to your computer, refer to Table 1 and Table 2 for examples. To remove the docking station or port replicator, perform the following steps: Shut down the computer. Remove the docking station: Universal Docking Stations: Disconnect the docking station's USB cable from the computer. D/Port or D/Dock: Remove any cable locks from the security slot on the right side of the docking station. Move the slide lock forward to the unlocked position. Press the Eject button and lift the computer from the docking station. C/Port II or C/Dock II: Remove any cable locks from the security slot on the left side of the docking station.

Casio exilim lens retracts wen u press to take pic


The battery probably needs charging. The camera will automatically shut down if the battery is going flat.
With the Exilim you need to make sure that you don't overcharge the battery by leaving it permanently docked in it's little docking station - this can damage the battery. There is an LED on the docking station which shows the status of the battery. Red is charging, green is fully charged - take it off the docking station.

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.

If the docking station is not charging the laptop while docked, it may simply need to be plugged in using the power cord to recharge the battery.
