Question about iRiver PMP-120 Digital Media Player

PMP-120 Battery Discharges too quickly

I bought two new batterys for the player and charged them to the maxumum (green indication on the player shuts down when this condition is reached). I left the player shut down for 24Hrs and tried activating it afterwards. I received a LOW BATTERY indication followed by a player shut down.
Is there a power configuration I should be aware of that may cause accelerated discharge? should the player be connected to a charging USB port when it is not in use?
Thanx

    OK but, in your opinion, is this how the player should behave? as far as I know during shut down a player may sink some tens of micro-amps but at the rate the battery is discharging it would seem there is a malfunction...

Yes,
you will have power through the usb port, so leave it plugged in.
Even when it is shut down it can drain batteries.

    It is possible there is a malfunction.
    In that case, since this unit is so high tech, I would bring it back to where you bought it and explain.
    If it was from circuit city, best buy or walmart etc.,
    They may replace it at no charge, even without a warranty.

My acer aspire 5735Z wiil not stay charged for more than 1 hour when not one the charger and just shuts off even if battery indicator shows atleast 50% charge, is just a bad battery?


Batteries wear out with use and can be replaced easily with a new one.

If you laptop is more than one year old then most probably the battery is weak and cannot hold the charge. When a battery becomes weak its capacity to hold charge reduces considerably until you have to remove it to start the laptop (with charger only).

You can continue using it until the battery time drops to about 10 minutes. After that, simply replace it with a new one.

If the laptop is new and under warranty, you should contact warranty support asap.

To increase battery life place the laptop on a solid table where there is ample air flow beneath. Heat will destroy a battery faster such as when used on bed or your lap often.

Regarding you question about shutting down even when battery is 50% it could be due to following reasons:

  1. Power Settings within the control panel.
  2. The battery charge drops quickly so that it discharges very quickly when it is showing half. Remember that the indicator is an estimate and does not account for battery degradation over time.
  3. Other issues like over heating etc but please check first two points first.

Quick discharging of the Iphone 3gs battery


Yes its normal. To maintain the most power adjust your brightness bar down to 1/4 or 1/2. Keep the push mail function off when you don't need it. Don't recharge the battery until the unit shuts itself off. Then recharge the battery to max before using. This is called conditioning the battery, even though many say you don't need to on lithum ion batteries because there is no memory effect. But their full of sh.t, cause you do the first time you get the battery and should do it once a month to extend the life of the battery.

Boot failure or just nothing?

Boot failure would be the hard disk.
Just nothing would indicate that the system board is dead.

You don't mention using the mains power adaptor.

Will not power up


The battery is probably shot. Check voltage. if it is 0.0 then the battery has shut down internally and either needs to be charged for 48 hours, or replaced. Seems these batteries will shut themselves down to protect themselves and sometimes are never able to revive. You can try and charge it from the USB, but I dont think it does that, you need a 5.0V 2A power supply with the proper tip. I think it is a 3mm + center post. You can also remove the battery and check the pins when it is charging, It shoould show some voltage. Also, I dont think you can run it while charging.
