    already thought of this and bought new bigger battery, charged this up and still nothing.

    I read in the manual that if it isn't used for a while the internal battery needs charging from the mains cable wich i don't have could this be the problem and how do you locate the internal battery for my model of camera

If you have a voltmeter, check the battery and see if it has voltage. The battery has probably just gone bad from sitting. If you don't have a voltmeter, try taking it to a radio shack or electronics store to see if they will test it for you.

The battery is almost surely the problem, but it would be a shame if you bought a new battery and then the camcorder was the problem. Most stores won't take a battery back once it's been opened.

Keep us posted, and if you don't have a voltmeter and want to get creative, there are some ways to make something with wire and light bulbs that could work.

You also might take the battery to a hardware store or even an auto parts store. They would likely have a voltmeter and might let you check the battery on it.

    It would be easier to get the cable and charge the battery than it would to take apart the camera and replace it. I'll get the manual and find the location, though.

    I took a look at the Operating Manual. The internal battery is just for keeping the date and time set. If that was the problem, the unit would work but you'd have to set the date/time anytime you took the battery off. If you put on a new charged battery and it still doesn't work, it's time to take it in where someone can troubleshoot it while actually looking at it.

I have a Craftsman mulcher model 315.370270. The green recharge light goes on but the battery charge level stays in the red. Do I need a new battery and if so where do I buy it?


I guess you've solved this by now, sounds like you need new batteries if the mower lacks power after trying to recharge. There are two sealed lead acid 12-volt batteries connected together on this mower to provide the 24 volts of power. These are the same batteries that are commonly used on rechargeable power wheelchairs and scooters. So you could find them at a Durable Medical Equipment company. The last two times I bought them, I got them from a DME company where I used to work. I also looked into buying them over the internet. Just make sure the replacement batteries are the same size and specs. You could burn out your on-board charger by continuing to charge batteries that are shot. I did this a few years ago with my 315.370270. Since then I have been charging the batteries with my portable Craftsman charger. The 12-volt batteries last about 3-5 years. I have had my mulcher since 1995 and have replaced the batteries about four times. This is the best mower I've ever owned. I'm going to retire it this year, if you're interested in it for spare parts.

My e525 emachine doesnot charge i plug the charger it work when i remove it it turns off


If the charger or power brick is able to power up the computer and you can use your computer but it does not charge the battery, then the battery is most likely faulty. They only last a few years, slowly loosing their ability to power your computer until they die.

Remove the battery and plug in the power connector into your laptop computer. Power on your laptop, if it powers on and you can use it, then you need a new battery.

Contact a computer store for a replacement battery.

Take care!

TOSHIBA SATELLITE M45-S165 won't charge Battery. The power connector on the back of this laptop is losse but still powers the Laptop. I bought a new battery and the Battery light does light up on the front...


it could be possible that changing the dc jack at the back may fix the problem however it could be a faulty new battery as ive had a few copies (not original) which would work for a week or so then die or others which wouldnt work at all, i finaly splashed out on a new original battery and it hasnt let me down and i bought it over a year ago.

Hope this helps

Got new Palm TX out of box (although it is actually a few years old, but was never opened). charged for 3 hrs, but as soon as I unplug power cord, it goes dead. Battery appears not to work. found another...


The batteries have a shelf life. So they can die just from sitting and not being used.

What you can try is charge it and discharge it a 'few' times (few can mean 20-30 or more or less) it can revive the battery.

Replacement battery's are cheap $15 and up. So if you got these free it is worth putting one in.

Mine won't hold a charge either. I've had it for about a year and used it about 6 times. I have the manual and it is no help. I guess the battery is bad after a year. What a bummer. Don't purchase this product.

Power problem


Your battery is probabily uncharged or disconnected. Try taking the battery out and putting it back in. Then charge it (by plugging in the AC adapter) until the green activity light stops flashing. If this does not work, your battery is probabily dead. Did you short it out? Or perhaps it is old. Li-Ion batteries (the kind used in these machines) lose their ability to hold their charge in a few years - even if they're not in use! So, if your battery is 3 or more years old, try considering a new battery.

My shaver doesn't stay charged very long


The motor is fine, what happens is that the internal battery loses the ability to fully charge and run the motor for a long period of time. While you "could" change the battery out with a newer one using solder, it's unlikely that it would cost less than buying a newer model at the store or from ebay. The average life of good shavers made a few years ago was about 3-5 years due to the type of batteries in it. I used mine with a charging cord for a while but that became an issue once while traveling. I bought a new one.
