Question about Panasonic Toughbook 71 Notebook

CF-71 battery LED always flashing

I have a fairly new battery for my fairly old CF-71. Last night after using it during the day, I noticed that the red battery LED started flashing. The computer died so I inserted the AC plug. The battery will not recharge. The LED flashes even when the battery is out of the notebook. The AC adapter is fine. The notebook operates when on AC, and the battery LED flashes. Is there something I can replace easily inside the computer. It is not worth more than a few hundred $$, but it still does fine for my application.

I would say bad battery, batteries can short and just die, they usually get hot too, try a new batt. don't buy a new one if you can even find it as it will cost allot, what I do is I have a local battery store replace the internal batteries on the battery pack, there are also places online that can do that for a fair price

for example a DELL battery pack to purchase was $185 I had one rebuilt for $25

Two red flashing led lights flashing. Constantly get the same problem fix and am tired of this problem had 4 controlers replaceded and several other things done almost $10,000 dollars done last year alone...


The 2 flashing red lights indicate a low battery. Did you have the batteries replaced? and did you have the charger checked? The charger could not be giving you a full charge or you didn't charge the batteries correctly. It takes about 9-10 charges to bring the batteries to 100% operating capacity. Always charge the batteries before using after installing new ones and then charge nightly when you sleep. When you get up in the morning the batteries should be fully charged and last all day. Never charge more than 12 hours and always store or put up fully charged Hope this helps and sorry that no one can seem to help you except spend your money needlessly

''err 99'' code appearing fairly often recently on Canon Rebel XT


To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.


Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.


Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Sony KP-51WS500 wil not turn on


did you notice any color flashing at all during the poping? As that model is fairly famous for the green CRT shorting out or the flyback arcing. Does the power LED light up at all or possibly blink? Let me know about the LED and I will try to help you diagnose what the problem may actually be. respond to this same post, so I can keep this problem seperate as I have so many responses with different problems that its hard to keep them straight unless we keep using the origional request each time.
