I recently purchased a out of box model from circuit city 3680
it did not have a battery with it. I purchased 1 and tried it but it it did not appear to take a charge The power charge light on the front of the computer indicates yellow while plugged in after 12 hrs of charge the battery would not power the PC for any more than a few minutes and it shuts off. just recently purchased another new battery thinking the first was NG. same exact problem after charging it only lasts a minute or 2 the probability of getting 2 bad batteries fron 2 different suppliers has to be pretty low
Be fore I send this thing off and expend lots more money is there anything
I can do to narrow down the problem. Could the AC adaptor be bad or is there something with the PC itself
The computer is new just a display model the charger seems to work
the light is green and it powers the PC okay.

Re: Battery or charger ?
Well...this one is interesting, for certain. You bought a display model, so the chances of it working off battery are mighty slim. Could be that the m/b was running off ac power all the time, and can NOT charge a battery. I'd take it back, and have them show you that it will run on battery, which is considered a fairly important issue with laptops, at least around these parts on Hawaii

Because it is an old model (end of service life and not supported anymore) and the battery possibly not holding any charge and needs replacing, i think this works ok on just the charger without battery.
Hi the only chance you have of getting a replacement battery is to see if they have their own website or try going to your nearest electrical repair shop and they should be able to locate a replacement for you ill have a look for you now and see if their is any where local to you that stocks these types of battery. Could you tell me what part of the world your in as this will help me locate the nearest one to you
* Circuit breaker on main control box is tripped * Fuse blown (check fuse in main control box assembly). * Incorrect polarity at battery terminals * Dead batteries. * Charging cable is still connected to charging receptacle * One of the cable connections at the main control box is loose. * Control connection cable disconnected * Broken key switch * Throttle stuck fully open * Throttle control potentiometer broken. * Speed potentiometer broken * Battery voltage too low. * Faulty charging cable. * Charger not working. * Charging circuitry in main control box assembly not working
If these check OK, the problem is likely to in the control connection cable or upper control box Verify that the upper control box is getting 24V. (Blue wire on red connector.)
* If the upper control box is not getting 24V, replace control connection cable
* If the upper control box is getting 24V, check key switch operation and verify wiring in the upper control box. Trace voltage from keyswitch on to find where the problem occurs. (Replace upper control box if necessary.)
* Charge batteries with a 12V charger or replace if necessary.
* Ohm test the charging cable - replace if necessary.
* Test scooter with a different charger, if new charger works, replace charger.
* Check wiring in main control box assembly - replace in line relay if necessary * If batteries, charger, and all wiring is good, replace controller PCB. (Note the model number for the PCB, for example 1208-2330.)
I don't know if this is the model number the book doesn't state what it is, but I was told the battery is re-chargeable. I didn't receive a battery charger for this battery. What type of charger would I need to re-charge the battery and where can I find the charger??? Walmarts, Best Buy, Circuit City, or any electronic store in Georgia? I will try this first to see if the battery drained. When plugged in it will come on but I can see anything on the flip screen. Thanks Sonja Mack
There is a flaw with these cameras. They will not charge the battery while in the camera.
The solution is to buy an NP60 batttery and an external charger. These are available on ebay (uk) for £3.99 for the battery and £4.99 for the charger
FYI, replacing the battery did not solve the problem of the battery refusing to charge. Instead, I've spent $30 at batteryship.com and since I've opened the battery I can't return it. There must be a software or hardware failure that's preventing the unit from charging the battery.
My camera charger was blinking red and the battery would not charge. I called Casio customer service and they offered to send one out! They did ask when the camera was purchased and I told them it was just a couple of months ago when it was actually more than a year. Casio 1-800-435-7732
