You can actually use regular AAA nickel metal hydride batteries for these headphones. I have the MDR-RF925R and they are the same way. Just remove the battery back, and cut the label from the original battery pack. You'll need to keep the black plastic case that they fit into. Replace the new batteries into the case, you may want to tape it to hold it together, then you can use the base charger like normal.

You can actually use two regular dry AAA batteries to power these headphones, the only thing is that you will not be able to charge those batteries with the charging station that comes with the headphones.

    You can still use the base charger, you just need to do a little hack. Take the original battery pack from the headphones. Now if you look in the upper right hand corner of the battery box you will see a little gray hook. This is the key, Now just cut the label on the original battery pack and take it apart. You will find that these are two regular old nickel metal hydride AAA batteries. Go to Walmart and pick you up some rechargeable batteries, place them in the same black case and press it together, you may want to use a little tape to keep it all together, then pop them in the battery box and plop it back on the base. It will charge like normal!

    Another issue is the positive end of the plastic battery holder seems just thick enough to prevent contact . The batteries that are in the $29 replacement pack have a slightly longer "nipple". I cut the plastic holder in half and use only the bottom or negative end which is needed to trick the hidden switch. This switch allows the cradle charger to work. If this switch isn't tripped, the red charge light will not come on thus not allowing a charge. Shame on Sony for in effect charging $25 for a piece of plastic which only serves to keep the consumer from using a cheaper and widely available replacement battery!!

My laptop is overheating


The rechargeable battery is at fault and needs to be replaced. This will occur even when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet. As, the battery is trying to recharge.

To avoid damage to your laptop, stop using it until the battery is replaced.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I get a green and yellow light on the Ryobi 18v charger and the batteries don't recharge. Does this mean the charger is now bad? Thanks for any help. Dan


This usually indicates that one or more of the rechargeable C batteries is not recharging. The batteries are standard rechargeable C batteries but the terminals are spot welded and are very hard to separate. There are 15 rechargeable C batteries in the Ryobi 18v battery pack. A battery tester will show which battery(s) needs replacing. There are refurbishing centers (Google search) but they will replace all the batteries and usually upgrade the OEM 1500 mah batteries with 2100 mah, or higher, batteries.

Dvd player recharger charge status lights blink


The blinking went away as I had charged it for a very long time. However, it was noted that it would not work on the DVD. The battery needs to be replaced. That solved my problem. I still have to look for a new battery for this device: US Logic 680p DVD player with recharging capabilities due to the portability option. It works fine if plugged in, but the battery just needs to be replaced if I want to use it independent of the plug. Thanks for asking how I resolved the issue.

Battery life cut down to 7 hours


The thing is, you recharge it too much. Because when you recharge it even though it still has battery power left, it tries to recharge it as much as if the battery was depleted. So, your battery overheats, therefore allowing you 7 hours instead of 20. And yes, it is possible to switch the battery.
