Question about Sony VAIO Notebook

2 Answers

My battery is not charging. I changed battery thinking that it comes from my battery. The new battery is charged à 63% and it does charge more using my PC with the power plug on. So it comes from my charger in the PC. Is it software issue or a hardware issue?? Any solution?

From your description, the new battery appears to charge normally.

Given this, it means that your first batter has failed, they do have a finite working life.

But remember, they last longer when used regularly and fully discharged/recharged.

It is a hardware issue. Check the battery charger inside the laptop. I would recommend not to use the battery until the problem is resolved as it may be hazardous

Even after my olympus mini digital battery is fully charged it doesn't work for long

This is probably because the battery has been worn down after many charges or because it has been over-charged.
When charging devices with batteries you have to make sure that you don't over-charge them.
It happens though, batteries do degrade over time and the amount of charge it holds becomes lower.
The only solution I can think of is changing the battery or buying a new camera.
Hope this helps.

Camera will not come on. Previously, I have not used the camera for two years. I took it out and charged several batteries. It shows that they are fully charged. But, the camera would not come on...

Try to use it firstly with AC adaptor(VSK0617) to understand that if it is working. The original battery pack (CGA-S302A) irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year. So it is normal I think. Also, high charge levels and elevated temperatures (whether resulting from charging or being ambient) hasten permanent capacity loss for lithium-ion batteries. Think that shelf life+usage period+two years and other bad parameters decreases its life near 0.
As I said before,
Try to use the camera with its AC adaptor then change the batteries with new ones.
Hope that it will work.
This is the link of camera manual. May be you need to read the page 12.

How do i charge it?

You do have re-chargeable batteries in it? You could try a new set of batteries and there's usually a "Connect button you can press to reconnect it after installing new batteries.

My blackjack wont charge or turn on

i think you should also change your battery so that you will know if the problem is with the charger of the battery.

or may be the charging pin is the problem or is broken, so you should try and check all.

Nintendo DS not charging. Tried different chargers but no good

1) If the light doesnt come on at all when you plug in the DS
there is probably an internal fuse on the DS which governs the charging of the device. You can get a kit that will charge the battery for you, usually when you buy accessory kits you get these (try argos?). I got one a couple of years ago with a battery and a dock for charging it, from argos, but I think it was discontinued.

2) if the light comes on and turns off immediately then its probably a problem with the battery. Buy a new battery, theyre quite easy to get hold of and quick to change with a screwdriver.
