Plug the Sansa c200 into the computer using the USB drive. And, on the face of the mp3 player, there is a light yellowish-green bar that lets you know how much it is charged up. It's kinda hard to see, but it's there.

Has been charging for 3 days but does not reach full charge. Now appears to be draining when plugged into charger

Sounds like a faulty charger.have you tried using another charger.have you also tried running the battery completely flat via control panel utilities.sometimes this helps the battery renew its stamina by complete discharge then doing full recharge.lastly if the charger is not faulty and you have tried full discharge and recharge cycle it could be the battery is starting to is not a good idea to leave the battery on continual charge as this can shorten its life.most batteries last between 500 to 700 recharge cycles before they start to lose their holding capacity.

I have minolta DiMage camera and it will not reconize fully charged batteries, it show battery as being 1/2 full and I put new batteries and it still won't reconize. I have cleaned the battery posts, but...

When you said new batteries, did you mean a fully charged battery? If so, it could be that your batteries are nat capable of holding a full charge. Otherwise, my suggestion would be to Call the manufacturer for tips or help.

My kindle of two years old battery will only charge to half full, is that normal and can I replace the battery

Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

Places like Batteries + are able to replace some tablet batteries.

Charged but won't run

I had the same problem earlier today. By chance I plugged it in again to the recharger, but this time, just the battery, and it started recharging again! It did a full recharge, and what do you know, the vacuum works again!
I had left it in the recharger all night originally and it didn't like that it seems. So recharging it again, just was the battery and when it had finished recharging, attached it to the motor part and it worked perfectly.
Hope this helps someone else.

How to know battery power in nv3 camera

When the camera is switched on, the battery condition is displayed on the LCD monitor. There is a little battery, with 3, 2, 1 or no bars in it, indicating Full; 3 bars, Low capacity; two bars, one bar and none bar. In all three cases, you should be prepared to recharge the battery. But if really there are no bars, don't shoot pictures anymore,
Recharge or place a spare battery, if you do have one (or more)

When to recharge batter

hi right to be honest both ways are correct, but if your using it every day then its best to put it back on the charger after every use, but the problem with this is that the battery never goes totally flat, so never does a full recharge this reduces the life of the battery by upto 50% so if you are using it regular and need it charged daily then its best to once a month let the battery go totally flat so that it wont even make a sound then do a full recharge.
Doing this will ensure the battery remains at peak performance and make it last longer.

If how ever your only using it say once a week then its best to only charge after the battery has gone flat due to the fact that it would remain on charge longer and cause the battery to over heat reducing the life span of the battery.

But witch ever method you use always let the battery go totally flat once a month then do full recharge this will prolong the life of the battery and ensure it keeps working at full power.

Let me know if you have further questions ok

Pictures are misty if we take them in the sunlight & the battery power becomes lower quickly even if it is charged full.

You should know that if take pictures against the sunlight it will be misty. About the batteries, if those are NiCad batteries, it has a problem called memory effect. If you recharge the batteries before it's completely empty, the next time the battery shows it needs recharge when it reaches that level. So recharge the batteries only when they are fully empty. You will have to replace the battery now.

Scooba not working after full recharge

NiCD and LiOn batteries have this tendency. They work great for a year, then slowly die off. The problem is you. When new, the device MUST be charged for 14hr nonstop, then every 2-3 months run dead, and recharged again 14hrs nonstop. This is done so the CPU of the Roomba (cool toy) KNOWS what DEAD is and what FULL is. It does this by measuring the amount of currrent flowing thru a very precise resistance. If you do hit and miss charge cycles of the roomba or leave it charging too long, it either develops a flase memory of the above two conditions, or gets HOT and the electrolyte paste dries out. Fix is to wear it out, charge 14hrs, wer it out againand repeat 3-4x. Then recharge and use. If that doesn't fix it, the batteries are too dried and need to be replaced.

My olympus isn't turning on

Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries.

I hope this works for you.
