Hi to all, having read the possible solutions to my problem, I removed the case from the radio exposing all of the inside after a good visual of the components I discovered lots of dust and places around the battery compartment had corrrosion inside the where I would not have seen, after cleaning well with contact spray and blowing the dust out of it I now have a fully restored scanner. Thanks for the advice and have a Great 2008!!!

There could be three (3) reasons why the low battery indicator is activated:
1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries;
2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or
3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.

Corrective measures would require:
a. replace/recharge batteries. The new rechargeable batteries need at least 16 hours of charging time;
b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder;
c. (on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The charger is on but the charging indicater light is not on

You probably need a new battery. A laptop battery loses about 20% of it charge ability each year and this seems like an older laptop. The break down because the heat generated by the laptop effects the battery's chemical behavior. Try ebay for a new replacement.

This is about the tw 200 high beam, new bulb still doesn't seem to have any current to the yellow wires. One goes to high beam indicater, which by the way that bulb is burned out, the other goes to high...

If you have low beam then you have power to your handle bar switch, and if you have no power coming from the yellow wire from the handle bar switch,replace it.

I've been struggling with the same problem and could not figure out what the heck was goin on. When I would connect the camera to the charger the red light (indicating charging) would come on for like maybe 10 minutes. I could take pics for like 30 minutes then the camera would lose juice. Also, the green battery icon (indicating a full charge) would only stay green for like 1 minute then it would go right to the yellow battery icon (half charge). After a couple of weeks the red light indicater would only come on for like a second. I played around with mine and realized that the battery terminals were not connecting to the power source inside the battery holder. Basically the battery wasn't snug enough inside the battery holder to connect to the power. When I pushe the battery in with my finger the red light indicater would stay on. So I took a little piece of paper (folded slightly) and wedge it in the battery holder and closed the battery holder cover. Hope this makes sense! (And helps.)
