You can take you battery to a place called batteries plus they can check out to see if it is you battery if the battery is good than you have a bad charger. you can get one cheap off of ebay. They are 45.00 plus at batteries plus lots cheaper off ebay and some time you can get a charger and battery combo for half the cost of the charger from them. hope this helps.

I just got a brand new uho78sx, put it in the charger dock after about 3 hours the light went of indicating that it was charged but it would not turn on. When I put it back in the dock the charge light...


Hi,

It would seem that your battery pack is Ni-Cad, if so, these have a memory, this means they will only recharge from the last top-up, rather than complete charge.

You need to completely drain the battery pack until it is flat, as in no charge left.

Otherwise, buy replacement Lithium Iron (Li-On) battery pack from Uniden or on ebay, these don't have that memory effect the Ni-Cads do, so you know you won't have these problems again.

If it's a really good radio, then replace the battery pack with really good one.

I hope this has been helpful.

Regards,
Peter

The light on the end of the dock stays red. Battery when recharged turns green. When placed back on the dock, then the light goes back to red.


Turn your camera on and look at the battery life after you had it charging for a while. your rechargable batteries may be bad or getting bad. Try trading out the rechargeable batteries or try plugging in your charger on a different outlet at home

My Kodak Easy Share DX6490 will not turn on. When I place it on the charging dock, the lights flash like it is transferring photos to my computer and the flashing won't stop even if I remove the camera...


Hello, sounds like you have a faulty battery,if the battery is several years old it will lose the capacity to boot the camera and the dock is trying to charge a defective battery,if you get a new battery, charge it for at least 6 hours or more.Hope this solves your problem.

My ipod wont stay charged


This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

Won't charge battery


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing to or from the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and try the charge again. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the dock may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Garmin Forerunner 205 Battery won't charge. A few


Hey everyone. Just called Garmin and got it fixed. Sometimes the forerunner goes into power saver mode and needs to be reset

1. Hook up the usb cable and docking station to the computer.
2. Next, hook up your forerunner to the Docking station - It should pop up saying battery charging in progress
3. Leave it all hooked up and Hold the Mode and Lap/Reset Button together for 15 seconds - screen should go blank.
4. Let both go - should pop back up saying battery charging in progress.
5. Let Charge 20 minutes and it should be good to go.

Hope this helps!!!

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.


The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)

First of all, did you fully charge the battery using the A/C adapter before initial use? If your ipod does not fit with any of the attachments correctly, try just placing it on the dock without the attachment & it should connect fine just be sure it's connecting to the dock properly. I have the ipod nano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!
