Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Dying battery I got mine for christmas 2005 & its worked beautifully for me but now the battery life is simply appaling & needs charging on an almost daily basis. Skipping songs seems to make the battery run out even faster. What do I do? Send it in for repairs? Where? The sony website is no help as fas as providing repair information.

    I have the same problem as all of the above people except I do let the battery die fully. Also I do charge it for quite a long time through the computer USB. Is there anyway that I can get my Sony to last longer. I am not under warranty anymore.

I would recommend running the battery till it is flat, by playing it for as long as possible, at full volume. Then charge it up for ages, maybe all night. To minimize battery wastage change the brightness to minimum and the display to 15 seconds. The reason the battery dies is because of excessive pressing of buttons. If this fails take your player to one of the specialist Sony Places that will fix it. I believe these are listed in the warranty or the manual that came with the player.

How do I keep my battery from dying so fast on my laptop?

Would need a few more details, model number, age, how long you've had the laptop. I assume you have adjusted power profiles to maximise battery life

Battery life

In order to keep your battery life from minimizing over time..only charge your battery when it is dying or dead, because when you charge it when its still green or on yellow ect. you are overcharging me.i learned this the hard all i have to do was only charge when necessary.

*this also applies to ipods.

Tabeo tablet battery not charging will work if plugged in

Hi! Hope this may serve as a hint. When power problem dooms to any electronic device needing battery operation we sometimes least assume that the battery life is near to its end. I mean its charging life has come to end. However, you can sometimes recycle it's life cycle by discharging fully and recharging fully without using it. Battery utility softwares can help monitor its life but cannot revive at all. Charging also using fast charger and or slow charger can help reactivate the battery cells. I personally experience, a gadget of mine its charging life is almost come to end and when I accidentally plug it on my laptop with 3.0 USB offline charging capability it somehow raise its life but not as good as it is. If the above doesn't work at all, it's time to change the battery pack. Goodluck!

I didn't charge it for 12-16 hrs as initial charging and now the battery life is limited only to 1 day. is it suppose to be like this? or do you have any suggestions to lengthen the battery life?

One day is good if you have a high usage time on your phone, but if you hardly touch it all day and it's still dying at the end of the day, something is wrong and you need to go have it checked out by your service provider. Good Luck.

Have a Vizio P42HDe purchased in 2005. Right half of screen is fine. Left half is series of small vertical bars (various colors). Sometimes they go away and all of screen is okay. Any ideas?

I bought mine in Jan 2005 and today it did the exact same thing....doesn't go away. Seems like a 5 yr. lifespan on these.
Will try a Panny for Christmas !!

My laptop wont charge

If your laptop isn't charging, it's usually one of two problems:

1) Your AC adaptor isn't working correctly anymore. It may be faulty, or may simply have endured all the wear and tear it can handle.

2) Your battery is either dead or dying, and is no longer charging correctly.

If the problem is your AC adaptor, a simple replacement will fix the issue. If the problem is your battery, then it gets a little more expensive (batteries usually aren't cheap).

Most laptops come with software to help monitor battery life and so on. Dell, for example, have their "Quickset" software, which can tell you if your battery is operating properly or not.

If you give me more details on the specifics of your laptop, I can help more. Manufacturer/Model?

Hope that helps.

Phones not charging

you should definately throw the batteries away. They are probably close to dying and have very little battery life every charge. everytime you charge your battery it has less life in it so if it is old it might be time to replace the batteries.
