Battery Depleted Hi, Even though I am plugged into the wall outlet, the computer keeps saying that my battery is depleting and I should plug in or risk losing data...I am already plugged in! Do I need a new battery so that this doesn't keep happening? I don't want to lose any data! Thanks, Sheila

Are you able to run the laptop with no battery installed but the power cable plugged in? If not, there's a good chance your power jack on your laptop has broken (or almost broken) and will need to be replaced or the power adapter isn't working.

If it does run, your battery is probably bad and can't take any charge. It will need to be replaced.

    There's also a chance the AC adapter is not working. Most have a green LED that lights when it's working. If not, you may have to check it on another (similar) laptop or with a meter.

    Yeah, the problem is either with the power connector on the laptop or possibly with the battery (although less likely). You can replace the power connector yourself, although I must admit, it's not the easiest thing.

I have a Panasonic KX E-7000 typewriter and the "low battery" light is on. How do I replace the battery? Thanks!

Typewriter with a battery! ...never heard of such thing...because it does't make any sense. Are you sure it is not just a keyboard of some kind with micro switch (eletronic) touch pad contacts? I would think it likely that such a device would be rechargeable--its battery cells would not be user serviceable. No mfr would provide for replaceable batteries that were not readily accesssible via a well marked slide door or some kind off visible access. But mfrs and engineers would be semi-literate enough to say LOW (inaccessible) BATTERY when they mean LOW CHARGE STATUS or PLUG IN UNIT TO RECHARGE NOW. So, if inspection does not reveal a battery door of some kind, then yours are probably not replaceable without "key-entry-thing" disassembly. If plugging in for several hours or so (assuming there is a cord) does not clear the indication light and/or restore "typing," then the built in rechargeable cell(s) are probably depleted. That usually means "device depleted but we will sell you another...'typewriter'."

When I said ....does not make sense...with such high drain from motor...the total size and/or cell count of such a writer would need to be immense just to type more than a few paragraphs. And what would be the point of freedom from the wall outlet if you had to be always in close contact with a store that sells batteries; or carry a large number of batteries along with you. Oh, if there is a cord storage built in bin, could batteries be "store in use" there as well?

Very short battery life

Often this is the result of keeping the device plugged into a power source all (or most) of the time, even when it is not in use. The battery literally looses it capability to hold a good (long) charge.
So, you'll need to keep the device plugged in (to a power source) every time you need to use it ... to continue using it. Or, you may wish to replace the battery. And if / when you do, just remember to charge it fully, then unplug it and use the device (to run only on the battery) until the battery is depleted before plugging it in to charge it (to full) again. This way, the battery will last longer.

There is no sound or display on the screen when it is power on

The Apple iPod uses a rechargeable, lithium-based battery that can go between 10 and 36 hours between charges, depending on the model. You can charge your iPod using either an electrical outlet or your computer's USB port, but if you find that your iPod no longer takes or maintains a charge despite having the right connections, you should try some basic troubleshooting methods to restore the device's battery life.

Connect your iPod to a different USB port or wall outlet. If you use a USB port to charge your iPod, you may simply have a low-powered port, according to Apple. You can often resolve this by switching the cable to a different port, or using a wall charger (sold separately) to recharge instead. Charge your iPod for several hours. If you find your iPod completely unresponsive even as it charges, leave it plugged in for three or four hours and check again. If your battery life has been depleted completely, the iPod will need time before it can begin functioning again. Restart your iPod. A frozen or dysfunctional iPod may fail to charge, but a quick reset can fix basic functionality glitches. To reset a touch-wheel iPod, hold down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons until the gray Apple emblem appears on the screen. For iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons (the only two buttons on the device). Connect your iPod to your PC using the provided USB cable, open the iTunes software and click the "iPod" tab in the left column. Then click the "Update" button to search for and install the latest iPod software. Apple recommends keeping your software up-to-date to ensure that your battery life remains fully optimized. Purchase a new battery from Apple. If your battery fails to charge despite all your troubleshooting efforts, it may simply be too old and depleted to continue functioning. By taking advantage of Apple's iPod Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program (see Link Below), you can send in your iPod and receive a replacement battery or replacement iPod for a modest fee.

I left my computer and when I came back it was off and the battery was plugged in the outlet. I restarted it and it worked for a minute or two and then closed again. When I pressed the power button again,...

It might be possible that your power adapter died. But before reaching this conclusion remove your adapter from the outlet and the laptop. Examine for any broken connections and if none, try plugging it back in. Also try using your adapter on a different outlet.
Hope this helps.

Hi , The problem with my phone is that even though there is full charge , suddenly all the charge is depleted and the phone dies. I am unable to figure out if there is some loose connection with the...

"The charge is depleted and the phone dies" This happens in two cases....
  1. Your batteries are dead and old. Try replacing the batteries
  2. This can also happen if there is a short-circuit somewhere in the connection.
Try exchanging your batteries with a new one or with another phone of same model. If the problem is gone then your batteries were dead but if it arises again there must be a short-circuit somewhere, get is checked....

I have a pentex optio m60 it was okey but suddenly it saying battery depleted could me please tell me what is the solution for that and why does it happen

There could be a couple reasons for this:
1. When you have the battery in the charger, does it indicate that the battery is dead or fully charged. I would suggest placing the battery in a universal charger to check to see what the rating is on the battery, a universal charger will indicate the true power left. If the universal charger shows the battery is drained but your charger says it's full, you have a bad charger. If they both indicate full but camera says dead, you have either a power supply issue in the camera or the main board cannot read how much life is actually left in the battery. If your charger says full and the universal says empty, your battery is malfunctioning.
2. Does the camera turn off when it says battery depleted or does it simply keep telling that it's depleted. If the unit doesn't shut off, you have a firmware issue that needs technical repair on. That specific model does not allow you to download updates via USB from your computer, you need to send it to Pentax for repair.
