If the unit will turn on when the charger is plugged in, it is most likely not the charger as it is supplying sufficient power to charge and operate the unit. If, however, the unit will not come on with the charger plugged in, then I would suspect the charger. You can verify by checking the voltage out of the plug with a multimeter and verify it with the voltage specified on the charger.

Why is it not charging?


1 Battery no longer holds a charge
2 Charger is faulty
33 Charger circuit does not function

This is assuming the mains socket works ok

Try a different charger, if that does not do the trick you know it is either batteries or charging circuit. Then change batteries, if that does not work you know it is a charging circuit fault

My RCA tablet won't turn on and will not charge, what can I do?


If battery is depleted, then no, it will not turn on.

If battery charger is dead, phone won't charge or turn on.
If battery charger cable is broken, tablet won't charge or turn on.

You need to ensure you have a good working charger, and a good cable. Only a known good charger and a known good cable can charge the unit. Borrow or invest in a new charger and cable (they're cheap on eBay).

Only once you know the charger and cable are good can you determine that they are not the problem.

Depending on how old the unit is, it's possible the battery can no longer hold a charge and needs to be replaced. You won't know that though until you first determine the charger and cable you're using are working properly and providing a good charge.

PEG Perego Battery doesn't charge.


You have to first know what type of rechargeable battery you have. lead-acid, lithium-ion, ni-cad? NEVER use an unmatched charger for a different type of battery, they can EXPLODE in your face. Your current battery may have a memory from incorrect charging procedures, your charger could be bad. You don't know enough to handle the problem yourself, take it somewhere, a car repair, or even a TV shop.

Bosch battery charger


You cannot over charge a battery pack as the charger stops at full charge. However by recharging a partially used battery pack you can develop a memory in the pack that the charger will not charge past

Problem with mobility scooter


Take the batteries down to a battery shop and have them load tested. Make absolutely sure they are DEEP CYCLE batteries. My 35a\h batteries put out 480 cranking amps. The battery shop can also test your charger. I have two chargers for my scooter the 4amp charger that came built into the chair, and a really nice three stage 5amp external charger. My scooters batteries have two 50amp quick disconnect connectors. I made up an external harness for the 5amp charger with the same connectors. I can now charge up my batteries out of the scooter. They say my built in charger is a 4amp charger, its slow in comparison to the 5amp charger. Batteries are expensive, regular chargers charge at one rate, full speed and can overcharge a battery. A three stage charger is by far way batter on your batteries. When you start to charge a depleted battery it put out full 5amps but as the battery nears being charged the charger backs off the amperage. When the battery is fully charged the charger goes into float mode and put out just enough amperage to maintain the charge. When i'm not using my scooter i keep the batteries connected to this charger. Deep cycle glass mat batteries don't stay charged very long when just sitting around. In about six months a dead battery will sulfate to the point where it will no longer take a charge. That happened to me once and cost me $200, never again will this happen to me. Battery shops are great places they have the instruments to tell you everything you need to know about the batteries. The batteries are the heart of your scooter unless you know there condition all kinds of strange things can happen. To make sure my batteries were good i have them checked against a known good set of batteries. BTW- Cranking amp is measured by putting a load on battery and increasing that load until the voltage falls off. At the point just before that voltage drop they measure the amperage output, that is you're cranking amps

Will 18 volt black & decker charger over charge battery


Hello Howard, There are two different kind of cordless drill chargers. One is a smart charger that will not overcharge your battery. It usually has a stand alone base that the battery plugs into and sometimes may have a red and/or a green light to let you know it is charged. This charger will stop charging when the battery is fully charged after an hour or less. The other one is a dumb charger that can overcharge your battery if left on the charger too long. This charger usually has a square or rectangular transformer that plugs directly into your wall receptacle. This charger may take up to eight hours to fully charge your battery and will continue to charge until you unplug it.

Hi. i have a sony dsc w130 and it says use only with compactable battery only. i know why that, coz i charfhe it with a universal charger. i heve tried short circuit, and nothing happends. i bought a new...


It is important for you to know that the specified charger that it is supposed to work with has a special method of charging it as the battery is a very delicate one. That is why it is specified that you have to use a compatible charger.
When you use a universal charger, it does not charge the battery as the battery is supposed to be charged. This inflicts some minor damage on the battery and makes it impossible for the battery to work.
The compatible charger has a unique spontaneous way of emitting charges into the battery and the universal charger lacks this. So when the universal charger is used, it does not emit the right amount of charge into the battery.
The only way around this is if you can modify the charger or the battery in such a way that it might work. But then, you maybe damaging your camera. Instead, buy a specified charger.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya.

I need to know what battery in float mode means on my battery charger. It doesnt say and its a smart charger 2amp 6amp and 12amp charger.


Float mode on a battery charger generally means that battery has been fully charged at a faster rate, and the charger is now maintaining the full charge, without overcharging the battery. You can usually leave the battery connected to the charger indefinitely - float mode will ensure it is always at it's peak charge.

Please rate if this helps :)
