Cannot remove battery pack from scooter.


This battery box attaches to the base platform with some very aggressive Velcro. The bottom of the box has a battery connector that mates up to the platform when the box is put on the scooter. The easiest method is to pull straight up on the battery box using the handle of the box. You will feel the Velcro release. Use 2 hands and wiggle it slightly. Some earlier versions had a battery box that actually locked into the base. This battery box required pulling out the flat release levers on both vertical sides of the box to release the battery box. I am going from memory on this.
If you need another technique, try removing the seat first and stand straight over the battery box. Bending your knees and grabbing with both hands pull the battery box handle straight up. It should release.
Before reinstalling vacuum and clean the platform and bottom of the box so that dirt is not keeping the surfaces from sliding easily.
Hope this helps.

How do i charge up tthe kiddizoom camera for my daughter ?? it came with a usb lead that links up to computer and one other lead to connect up to television


The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, you much charge them using a separate charger. The Kidizoom is not a battery charger.

Not able to charge the battery


Hi,

As per Sony, if you are getting this message, it's a concern.

This message usually appears, if you are using a Battery other than Sony's.Make sure you are using Original Sony's charger. Try to use some other Charger and Battery.

If problem persists, you need to send the unit for repair. More likely, it's a firmware issue. I have hardly seen any Charge / Battery issue.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Battery empty message


Put brand new batteries in. The battery empty message means there is no "juice" or power left in the batteries. If they are recharagable batteries, "re-juice" them (charge them).

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

check the link below for those

Battery/Power Issue


Cant help with the "cheap bastard" part, that is for your own edifcation. Anyway, have you adjusted your laptop power/battery settings. If you have tried changing your settings to "Max Battery", and it is still doing this it is probably a hardware issue between the MB and the battery interface. Thus the second part of your message might be comming true. Sorry.

New Batter won't fully charge and camera won't power off


The battery will not hold a charge or cannot be charged at all.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that you only use a Sony® brand rechargeable battery.
  1. Remove the battery from the camcorder or charger.
  2. Ensure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.
  3. NOTE: If necessary, the metal contacts can be cleaned using a soft cloth.
  4. Reinsert the battery into the camcorder or charger.
If the issue is still unresolved, then the battery may need to be replaced. If still unresolved after trying a replacement battery, then service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

First, make sure you are using the right type of battery. LiMh re-chargeables are the best to use.  Brand is your preference. In time you'll find a brand you like the best. Get 1800mAh or larger if you can.

Second, look through the menu on the camera and check to see what battery "type it is set for.  "Alkaline" for self bought, Ni cad for rechargeable. This tells the camera how to regulate the power from the batteries.  Also using the wrong off the self batteries will give you the same result you mentioned.  Make sure it is for "photo" or "cameras".

Third, look into the battery compartment.  Look to see if there is any contamination on the brass/copper contacts. A "green" color is a bad sign.  Can be cleaned with baking soda and a tooth brush but very difficult.  Steel wool wrapped around a cotton swab works but leaves behind small particles (desperate method).  Also, sometimes they put a plastic liner inside the battery compartment to protect the contacts during shipment.  Is it still there?

Fourth, maybe the battery charger is faulty.  It may show the batteries charged but they are not.  Try using another charger.

If all these items I have mentioned are OK and check out, then there is really no other simple fix you can do as a consumer and you need to take the camera back. It is an internal problem.  You have had it lees than a year so it should be covered by warrentee.  I'd push the issue if they say "no"

Good luck and please let me know if this solved you problem, thank you..
