Question about Vector VEC1029POB Radio
I've had a rechargeable PowerCenter in storage for some time. I tried to charge it up recently (with 110VAC) but when I unplug it from the wall, nothing works (acts like internal batts aren't holding a charge--only thing that works is lo-power on-board stuff like radio backlight). If I have it plugged in to wall (like it's charging on AC) everything works so I suspect the batts are no good. When it's charging I only get 3 LEDs for charging status--it never lights up the last (green) LED (indicating full charge). It's a great unit otherwise and I'd hate to have to scrap it without trying to replace the internal batts. Anybody know anything about these units? Are the batts replaceable? Thanx...

It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.
I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.
I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.

SOURCE: how do i turn the
This is a very obscure radio, there are no instructions or any reference to it online. It should have an ALARM button on the unit, trying holding it down for at least 20 seconds, it should pop up options for it including ON / OFF. Also check for any switches on device referring to ALARM, but I believe on this model it is under the menu of the ALARM button.

These units have a meter on them that shows if it is full or dead. If it will not charge from an AC wall socket, the unit is probably no good. Check the charger that it comes with to make sure that it doesn't need to be reset. If it has no reset button, you may need to return it for an exchange.
