You have a capacitor that is non functioning in your camera. Since it is not working correctly the circuit is not complete to have the power to run its way through to have it function

Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera charge fully battery after one pics show low battery sign


This is probably a battery issue and not a camera issue. Batteries with low output or low power can be due to them sitting and not being used for long periods of time. This can affect their ability to get a full charge as their "memory" is reduced regardless of what the charge light indicator displays. Even taking a battery that has been sitting for a long period and charging it to full charge, might only have limited power. Some of these can be returned to almost full capacity, but it takes multiple, repeated, alternating, charges and power deletions to rebuild the memory. In many cases, however, the battery just needs to be replaced.

My Kindle Fire will not start


If you last charged it with the computer USB port, try charging with the supplied AC adapter instead. If you last charged with the computer USB port, try charging with the AC adapter this time. This will help isolate a bad AC adapter / power cord or USB cable / USB port.

It is important to note that if you are charging your Kindle via USB port on a computer, when many computer enters "sleep mode" the USB power is shut off at this time too. Charging is effectively halted - even though still connected. You should only expect to charge while the computer is active or when using the AC adapter.

You can also purchase an aftermarket DC charger. These are small plugs that are inserted into your auto's port or cigar lighter. They provide 1 or 2 USB connectors to plug in a USB cable. These devices are suitable to supply / charge just about any devices that uses a computer's USB port to power / charge a device. They cost anywhere from $5 and up and look something like this:

My Acer aspire one just stopped working for no reason. I plugged it in to charge it but none of the lights come on, and nothing happens when I hit the power button...


Assuming that the AC/DC Power Adapter is not faulty no LED lighting up at all and no image at all on the screen might mean a power management fault on the motherboard.
First try removing the battery underneath the netbook. Then connect the netbook to the power cable without the battery installed. If the netbook powers up without a battery installed then the battery is probably faulty most likely with completely depleted and unchargeable power cells. if so you will almost certainly need a new battery and some little known guidance on the correct management of a netbook or notebook battery (see below). Dead batteries tend to generate a more than normal amount of heat.
If the AC/DC adapter is not faulty and using the netbook without a battery does not help then check the DC power jack where the power cable connects to the netbook to see if the jack is loose or detached from its original solder point on the motherboard.
If the none of the above are the cause of the problem then the motherboard probably has a power track or capacitor fault which might be repairable (as would a loose DC jack) but these types of fault even if successfully repaired can easily come back and the cost of repair might be high compared to the value of the netbook and not worth it since a brand new state of the art netbook with a full warranty would not be very expensive.
Many users take an incorrect approach to netbook/notebook/laptop battery management. These batteries are rechargeable and are only supposed to be connected to the power cable when their cells are low or depleted. Once the cells are fully charged the power cable should either be disconnected and the computer used on battery power alone or the battery should be removed and kept for when battery powered use of the computer is next needed.
Once a fully charged battery is removed the computer can be used directly connected to the electricity without the battery installed.
A disconnected battery needs to be reinstalled and recharged from time to time if it is stored for long periods of time, because the charge in its power cells very slowly dissipates even if is disconnected from the computer.

Don't know how to charge my new nextbook . . .


THIS FROM SUPPORT SITE> GENERAL 1. How long should I charge my battery and how long does it last?
It takes about 5 hours to charge fully and one charge will last for about 4-10 hours (with default system settings) depending on the work mode where you are. In default system settings and full charge mode, it is about 11 hours of ebook reading, 11 hours of music playback, 9 hours of video playback or 7 hours of web browsing. The time will get shortened if your Next2 handles multi tasks at the same time.
2. How do I charge my Next2 properly?
The device features a DC-IN port for connecting to power or charging battery. To charge the device, connect your device to any standard wall outlet through the DC-IN port using the AC adaptor.

I dont how charge battery on my mp3 player


Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge. USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device. Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. Latest firmware Depending on what player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware. AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port.

I just bought a new battery charger cable called (Sealed Lead-Acid Charger) to replace an older (Lead Acid battery charger). The New Battery charger will charge for about 2 to 5 minutes and then stop...


ismail the charger you bought should do the job. By stop charging do you mean the light on the charger turns from yellow to green? Your scooter has small batteries 12/12 and don't require along period of charging. Now the scooter has a heat sensor for the batteries and will cut off charging when temp of the batteries gets too high. The older charger could have overcharged your batteries and made them weaker instead of stronger. I would suggest you replace the batteries (2 12/12AH) and charge them with the new charger. Remember to reinstall the heat sensors on each battery when replacing. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 v dc and put the leads into the 2 outer plugs in the charger port on the battery pack. You should read 24-26 volts dc when the batteries are fully charged anything less would mean weak batteries. Hope this helps you

I recently bought sansa e270 and i am facing problem that i could not charge when it is connectd to the pc. Its showing just connectd, but no symbol of charging. whats the problem,what should i do to...


Hi
Check the Manual
User’s Guide


Hay Don't worry it will work
Note: Some low-power USB ports may not be able to provide enough
charge power. Also note that rechargeable batteries may
eventually need to be replaced as they have limited charge
cycles (which vary with use and settings).

Li-ion Battery
The Sansa e200 MP3 player comes with a replaceable and rechargeable
lithium ion battery. To use the player for the very first time, remember to
fully charge the Li-ion battery. You can charge your Sansa through the USB
port of your computer, a car adapter (not included) USB port, or AC adapter
(not included) USB port.


Please execute the following instructions for charging the battery using
an USB port.
1) Connect the smaller end of the USB cable into an available USB
port on the computer
2) Connect the larger end of the USB cable into the dock connector of
the player
3) The computer must be on for most USB ports to charge your
battery. Your Sansa will show connected and the yellow charging
indicator will appear. The battery level indicator will blink while
charging. You will not be able to play while connected to the
computer USB.
4) To stop recharging, disconnect the cable.
The battery can also be charged using an AC adapter (not included) or
a car adapter (not included) and you will be able to play your device
while charging with one of the adapters. The battery will reach
approximately 70% charge in 2.5 hours and full charge in about 3.5
hours. It is recommended that you fully charge your Sansa e200
before the first use.

My Canon power shot S2 IS does not detect the batteries


There is a battery charge level sensor in the DC/DC internal converter board.

It seems that just started to fail such board.

You can try with other brand or type of AA batteries.

If still you have the same problem, you will need to have replaced the DC/DC converter board on your camera. This means a Camera repair shop service on it.
