    I also have the same problem. It blinks green once then red three times repeatedly. It doesn't seem to be charging as it's been in the dock all night and when I press a button it give the low battery signal.



    This is the fifth Logitech product in a row that I have problems with... I guess that's what you get when you make everything in China. It definately will be the last as considering the price and lack of quality control - Logitech = Logicrap.

    I have the same problem. Sometimes if I smack the keyboard on the back a couple of times it will charge but lately that hasn;t been working. From what I have read, calling Logitech for a replacement seems to be the only solution. Pretty poor quality control in my opinion. I've used other Logitech products and this is the first one that I have had any problems with. I really like the keyboard and the bluetooth reception quality is very good.

    The slap on the back seems to have worked... unfortunately, because I'm too lazy to deal with a replacement -

    Yup, I have the same problem. Phoned up Logitech, they just said I have a defective battery and should return it to my reseller. I mean, ffs, this is brand spanking new!?!?!

    I have the same problem --my Edge keyboard will not charge (2 months old) and my response from Logitech has been very disappointing--they suggest I try another outlet--gee thanks.

    I bought my Dinovo Edge last May. Same issue. Called Logicrap and told them I read about the defect on ye ol' interweb and they promptly sent me another after faxing them a copy of my receipt. Still have the defective one. Intend on dismantling it this weekend to see if it was just the battery or something else. Will post back what I find.

    Just received - hours in the charger and the battery indicator is still flashing red.

  • Anonymous Jan 31, 2009

    Mine seemed to work all right at first, though I would have to reseat it from time to time in the charger. Now, even when I can get it to charge, the charge lasts only a day or two. I think its about at the end of the line. It's not quite a year old. I'm doubly annoyed because my rebate check expired before I got to deposit it. Still its good to know what course of action to follow. I'll call Logitech.

    For the last several days my DiNovo Edge keyboard has had the red light flashing while on the charger. I tried taking it off the charger, even used it off and on along the way, but it was clearly (based on red light) losing the charging battle. I called Logitech and they want me to send it back for replacement. They said they needed to receive the defective product before shipping another (I offerred to pay additional to ship now, but they refused). They expect it to take 5-7 business days once they receive my board.(They must think the keyboard is an optional piece of equipment for me!)



    BTW, they first said that the keyboard had a 5 year warrantee then corrected to say 3 years. I asked what happens when it fails after warrantee and the guy said, "we haven't even built that bridge yet.", and not to worry we'll take care of you.



    I love the keyboard, but hate the service.

    I had the same problem. Contacted Logitech support, and they sent me a brand new one that worked. Still have the old one though, and would really like to see if I can get it working. Anyone tried taking theirs apart to see if it's a loose connection / if the battery can be replaced easily?

  • Anonymous Mar 31, 2009

    I also got a new one but got to keep the original, broken one. Anyone had any luck taking their old broken one apart to see if it can be fixed / what the problem is?

I had this problem with mine so lets start by saying there are solutions!!

Solution 1:

Logitech state the battery cannot be replaced. It CAN. You can purchase the exact battery from ebay. Its a simple case of taking the orange backing off, removing all the screws (not forgetting the one hidden under the bluetooth address sticker) and popping the keyboard apart. From there, flip out the battery, pop in the new one, put it all back togeather and voila.

Solution 2:

Now if you dont care about your warrenty or it has none (as does mine) there are two contacts on the back of the keyboard which connect to the charger stand. Having took the keyboard apart, solder a wire onto each contact and then solder onto the battery connection contacts taking care to match red to red and black to black. Every time the keyboard is docked it will charge until you remove it. One other thing to note is that the low battery will keep flashing at you now and again (according to logitech you have about 10 mins use left until battery gives up) I have been using it for over 5 hours like this and its still going strong.

Enjoy.

Had the same problem. Not charging. In addition it was switchting on and for no apparent reason when I was using it. Felt like a flaky battery connection. Opened the cover and it turned out that the small connector at the end of the battery wire had a loose contact inside. This caused it not to charge. Firmed it up a bit and seems to work fine now. Instead of a flashing red battery led I'm no looking at a green one. Hope it will last a bit....

Overall very poor quality. Shouldn't happen at this price level.

The DiNovo Edge has a 5 year warranty through Logitech by the way. Mine has charged fine for nearly a year and now depleted totally and won't charge at all. I have not contacted warranty services yet, but will today.

I have the exact same problem.

The other screws are located under the orange cover on the underside of the keyboard. The orange cover is like a large thick sticker and can be peel off. Once it is removed you can easily access the other screws.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

My air hogs hawk eye wont charge.I'v done every thing it says to do in the instruction manual but it still wont charge.


I had the same problem--blinking red only when connected to charge. Try emptying the memory (download and then delete all photos videos). Then leave it in the "on" position overnight to drain the batteries completely. Worked for me (not sure which step since I did them together).

Try turning the battery over in the charger. It sounds like the wrong side is up.

Camera wont charge


Hi, if you are using the KLIC-5000 battery try to clean the metal contacts on the battery. Try also to remove the battery of your camera dock your camera on the docking station then turn on the camera, if the camera will not turn on it means the charging mechanism of the dock is defective. Now if the camera turns on it means the battery is defective that is why you can charged it.

It won't turn on! I charge it, and the camera is no more than a year old, and yet it wont turn on. However, when it's on it's base, it can connect to my computer and turn on fine! Is it the battery?! Why...


Mine won't turn on...unless I hit the red button, then the menu button, then repeat...the red, then the menu. When the menu comes up, it wants to reset the date/time etc. I just ignore that and hit the menu button once more and it's ready to shoot. Pain in the you know what.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

Hi, and unfortunately I am facing the same issue. My TV blinks GREEN LED for a few seconds then starts flashing RED led. The result I hear from this is that it is the SSB Panel and the estimated cost for service is $600.00 it sounds like you are STARTING with the problem. I began that way too. If you are under warranty, call Philips NOW!

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
