More information needed. Why do you want to change the battery. The batteries in the mp3 players last a very long time. If you need to change it, do in quickly, don't take it out and wait days to change it. The songs etc are on the hard drive, no you will not loose anything. Is this a Sansa 2GB e250?

You can go to for more information about the battery. You can also contact support 1-866-726-3475

    Once you install the battery, charge it totally. About 3-4 hours, because the battery will be new and will have no charge. Again, you will not loose your music etc. because it is on the hard drive of the Sansa. Also, if you have a SD card in the Sansa, remove it, before you take the battery out.

    FYI When you remove the battery of a small device with a hard drive or laptop computer, you do not loose data because it is stored in the hard drive. Unless you tamper with the hard drive you will be fine.

    Best of luck. You need any further help, let me know.

Battery box connection

The two tabs usually are just installed into loose fitting slots, and the bend in the tabs is what creates the "spring" action (and contact) on the battery terminals. To reinvigorate the tabs, you have to bend the portion of the tab that touches the battery terminal into the box, but you HAVE to hold the half of the tab with the soldered wire stationary while you do it. It works well, but requires patience. However, sometimes you can't get it to work, in which case go to a music store and order a replacement box ( often has what you might need).

Replacing battery in kurzweil mark 12

As per the manual it says it is located near the power switch. You will need(as per the manual instructions): a screwdriver(Phillips head), a knife, a pair of scissors, and a pair of front end wire cutters as, when shipped from the factory, the three AA batteries were taped or cable tied as a shipping precaution(to keep them from falling out). ***WARNING: MAKE 100% SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP ALL OF YOUR SOUND PATCHES ON A FLOPPY DISK BEFORE BEGINNING THIS PROCEDURE!!! ONCE YOU START THE REPLACEMENT PROCESS, YOU HAVE ABOUT 30 SECONDS BEFORE THE BOARD LOSES ITS CHARGE AND YOUR SOUND PATCHES GET ERASED FROM THE ROM CHIP.***
Make sure you have all of the needed batteries and tools before beginning.

Hope this helps.

Laptop lasts for less than an hour after charged

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

What do i o if my phis mp3 wont turn o i tried therest buttonand evrything, and it diddnt work.

The battery is probably at fault and they may have been a problem when you were charging the mp3 player or something. There are 2 options when there is a problem with the battery but first you must have the battery checked by someone who is certified to service phillips products.
One option is that you replace the battery but this may be hard to. You will keep your music but in many situations it may not be viable as buying a new battery may be more than buying a new mp3 player.
The other option is to buy another mp3 player but of course you will lose the music that was on your previous mp3
Unfortunately this may be the reality if the battery is to blame but just to be on the safe side get a second opinion
Good luck

My battery only plays music for around 8 hours, not the 20 as per the owner's manual. Can the battery be replaced without losing all the downloaded music?

Without knowing the make/model of the MP3 device its hard to give 100% answer.

However most MP3 devices will allow you to backup the data stored on the device to a PC to be restored back to the device whenever you please. Also if the battery to the deivce is removeable, this will not effect the data on the device and a simple battery replacement will solve the problem.

I dont know how to replace the internal battery on a Korg M1

You should be able to remove the top cover off your keyboard and see the quarter-size battery mounted in a holder on one of the circuit boards.
I don't recall the exact location on this particular model, but once you've located it, all you have to do is slide it out from under the contact spring that holds it in place and slide a new one in.
You'll want to make the swap fairly quickly as some models can lose their memory settings if battery power is lost for a relatively short amount of time.
