Most likely the battery has died - not just as in out of charge, but has lost the ability to hold a charge at all. This happens to rechargable batteries, and the thing to do is to replace the battery with a new one.

Unfortunately the XNAV3550 has an "integrated" battery, meaning you'd have to open the case (and void your warrenty) to replace it yourself. If the unit is still under warranty, contact Dual for a replacement. If the warranty has expired, then you might (if you're comfortable doing so) open the unit and see if the battery is easily replaceable. Otherwise I'm afraid you're out of luck. :-(

Just charged my new phone but it shuts off and won't work when I unplug charger


Are you shure your charger is working properly? Or that the battery is not shot?

The low battery light remains on after I changed the battery,


Hello
There are two possibilities for this fault. The first one is with its battery itself. If the battery did not hold current, in otherwords, it has weak, proper charge both in volts and amperes won't hold on it, and when the device draw current from it while it works, voltage drop will occur, and low voltage indication will be displayed.
The second chance is due to the charger circuit inside the radio. If charger circuit do not give proper voltage and current to battery, the battery won't charge to its full capacity.
Check it by replacing it with a new battery [batteries] first. If it helps you it's OK. If not, your radio need service, and its charger circuit must be checked well. OK.

My g1 randomly shuts off...its charged..but won't


All you have to do is change the battery,in this case,battery don't have enough performance to save power and can not distribute current on the phone that's why it direct rely on the charger,when you see your battery is already deform its shape,expect low performance on your phone as well as easily got low battery level.

My laptop won't turn on, even I try to plug the charger it won't charge. and the light indicator if it's charging is not on. The problem start when I using it while charging and it's...


Remove the battery and check the voltage on the battery, if low try to JUMP charge, if not replace. Also check the charging voltage with the adaptor connected to the latptop. If there is no voltage then the charger must be checked.
However if the battery and adapter seems good then the mother board is a suspect and it is ideal to get the help of Tosibha service for estimation.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

I cant get my power chair jet 3 to charge batteries are good


Hi valentin 201
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. . In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.

1. load test the batteries even if you think they are good, check anyway. Sometimes even new batteries won't hold a charge.

2. Your charger on the powerchair must have enough volts to open the charger inhibitor. That is, the charger won't even start up if your batteries are low. Both batteries need to have at least 20-22 vdc.

3. Some chargers have a 3amp fuse check that and repace if needed.

4. With a multi meter set on dc200 check your batteries. Red on one battery and black on the other. Check to see what you get for voltage. If no voltage reverse the lead wire to the other posts. Once you get a reading of 20+ volts watch the meter and plug in the charger, it should increase the volts on the meter. if not the charger is bad, replace. Charger should be 24-31 volts to be a good charger.)

One of these sugestions will fix the problem

Good Luck
Tim

My Rascal 318 has two constantly flashing yellow light and will not work. Help


Hi wrosser2

Two constant yellow flashing lights indicates three things
1. Low voltage. Load test your batteries even if they are new. You may need to take them out and charge them on a car charger. Your charger won't work without at least 20 - 22 volts. Your inhibitor on the charger won't close to make continuity to turn the charger on.
2. With an olms meter check your front to rear harness for continuity. If you have a bad wire, replace the front to rear harness.
3. Third and most costly is a bad controller. No way to check that without replacing it. Check 1 & 2 first.

Good Luck

I have a mini 7 inch epc netbook. I first turned it on and it worked fine. Then a message box appeared saying the battery was too low and it shut down. I plugged in the adapter but it still won't turn on....


The battery is low on charge or shorted inside and won't take a charge dragging the voltage down so that even the battery charger won't start your computer.

Change the battery with new and charge with a known good charger.

Hi have had my nokia 6280 for 2 and a half years now...replacing it soon but need it to function for another two months! problem is my battery started taking forever to charge and then stopped charging...


hi thanks for using fixya!!

On this kind of error, even if you had to change the battery or even the charger, perhaps the power supply internally is already damaged. Charging for more than 2 hours is a sign of something is not good and after that still shutting down. I recommend that you bring your phone to a Nokia Care Center or any service center to further check the hardware parts.

Regards.

Low battery display


My first guess would be to take a volt meter, and check the power pack to see if it's putting out the correct DC voltage(or any voltage). Those things are super cheap!
Then check the plug in on the scanner to make sure your getting a good connection(might have a broken connection to the circuit board). If those are 2 year old rechargeable batteries, they might be getting close to laying down and dying. Hope this helps,, Mechanic
