What is the proper pairing procedure?

When you're attempting to pair them, are they physically attached to your PS3 using the charging cord? Whenever I paired a headset, I'd plug the charging cord into the headset and into the PS3 and then turn on the PS3.

While on charger, the charge indicator LED is flashing instead of being lit continually. Battery doesn't seem to be charging properly. I've tried both the Charging cradle and direct connect. Same results....

Try a few things:

- If both of the above charging situations plug into a computer or car, try plugging into the wall. The amount of power drawn from other sources is lower than from a standard outlet, and if the phone is very low, this can be an issue.

- If both of the above charging solutions use one cable, try another cable. This will help you identify if the issue is with the cable or the phone.

- If different cables/power sources produce the same result, the problem is definitely with your phone. I would suspect a problem with the charging port, but it is also possible that the battery has failed. Try swapping a new battery (they should be available cheaply online if you don't know someone else with the same model phone), as well as cleaning your charging port with some canned air, and possibly a toothpick (be very gentle!) if you can see some debris.

Generally, charging ports are directly attached to the motherboard, making replacing just the port difficult and not cost effective. If the port is kaput, you may need another phone.

I'm looking to buy a replacement charging cradle for my Garmin Forerunner 201 but the only ones I can find also come with an adapter and I'd prefer not to pay for something I don't need. Any suggestions?

Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020. You can order the cradle part for your Forerunner 201 for $6.54 plus $8.00 shipping. You can also get the complete charger on Ebay as low as $20.50 including shipping. Thats the best I could find.

Hi There, I have a HP Pavilion ZE4900 and recently the AC plug in won't work. I have taken the battery out and put it in another comuter that is the exact same and it charges fine, I put my battery in the...

If your computer won't charge the battery, but the battery charges fine in another computer, and you are sure that the charger is good, then your problem is probably the DC power jack. If you wiggle the end of the power cord where it attaches to you laptop, and it starts charging properly, then the DC power jack is broken.

Power indicatoror

From the manual:

"Attach the barrel tip of the AC Charging Adapter to the AC Charging port of the POWER TO GO® and plug the standard two-prong plug into an appropriate, functioning 120 volt AC outlet. The red Battery Status LED indicator will flash, indicating a proper connection has been made and the unit is charging. The green Battery Status LED indicators will gradually light as the charge level rises. The POWER TO GO® must be charged for approximately 11-17 hours prior to first use. All Battery Status LED indicators will be lit solid (the red indicator will stop flashing) when the unit is fully charged.
