    I'm experiencing the same problem. It's interesting that we're all having the same problem at the same time. It indicates charging but after hours of charging, I unplug and the low battery indicator is on and I lose power. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Change battery sansa ciip


If the MP3 player 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 and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My cell is swithed off sudenly.and now it is nt opening


You're battery was drained already.All you have to do is when you charge your cellphone make sure that it was in a full charge after you plug it out.It takes 1 to 3 hours of charging because if you charge it for a minute the life of your battery was stick to that energy and it will function that specific minute again and again.

If i plug my player to pc it shows charging and full charge but if i disconnect it will appear lowbat in the screen. and my pc doesn't dettect my unit


Try turning off the player and then back on again. The battery status should update and show full charge. Restart your PC and reconnect the player and it should appear again.
Simply pulling out the USB cable can cause a communication error, so it's always best to use the 'Eject USB device' option. When you want to disconnect, the player will be listed as an external hard drive when you open up 'My Computer', right click on the drive and select 'Eject'.

I changed the battery in my 2005 F150 super crew today. Now when i let off of the accelerator it chokes down and shuts off. Not sure what the problem could be. it happened riding down the road and idling...


Hello, This happens alot. To fix this, you need to fully charge the new battery before you install it. Although you have a 12Volt system, the battery needs to be at 13.2 to 13.6Volts for a full charge.

You will find that the battery can quit charging even at 70MPH. The reason for this problem appears to be a combination of two features on Ford vehicles. The Battery minder is an automatic cutoff Feature for when headlights or another drain exists in the system. The Battery minder makes a mistake and reads the charging of the low battery as a drain and disconnects the charging system. The other Feature is the Anti-Theft control, which can reduce Starter voltage and interfere with other electronics to make sure your truck does not go far if stolen.

Even if you jump start a Ford with a low battery, it can automatically disconnect the charging circuit within 2 or 3 minutes of removal of the jumper cables, unless the residual Voltage reads a full charge.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. If you have a Voltmeter on your dash, glance at it once in awhile until this problem disappears.

Anomalous charging behaviour :- a) plug in discharged battery b) starts off with the yellow light flashing as usual c) after a very short time the lamp goes off completely - instead of staying on...


Okay, might not be reading this right but here goes. If the camera shows the batteries as full then I'd go with that. The charger will come on for a few seconds even with a freshly charged battery because it take that long for the charger to realize the battery is already full. You can't feed an already full battery, so the charger is shutting off completely. Yes normally the light would stay on and the charger would continue to trickle a charge into it it until it is removed. In your case I think you have those batteries stuffed to the gills so the charger is shutting right down. One of the problems with these batteries is as much as the manufacturers deny it they form a memory. Best thing to do with these rechargeable batteries is drain them right down and then replace with a freshly recharged battery.

How do i charge my sansa mp3?


  • Step 1:Plug the appropriate end of the USB link cable that came with your SanDisk MP3 player into the MP3 player itself. The port for this cable can be found on the right side of most models of SanDisk MP3 players.
  • Step 2:Plug the other end of the USB link cable into a free USB port on your computer. This will effectively connect your SanDisk MP3 player to your computer.
  • Step 3:Turn your computer on. This will cause your SanDisk MP3 player to automatically begin drawing power from the computer and charging its battery. On the screen, an indicator light will flash yellow while the player is charging.
  • Step 4:Disconnect the cable from both your MP3 player and your computer when the device has finished charging. You will be able to tell when the charge is complete when the indicator light that previously was flashing yellow appears as solid green.

    Sansa clip pc charging problem


    I'm not sure exactly what the problem is but it sounds like it could be faulty or old battery, they can sometimes stop taking a charge. Are you sure it needs to be charged? some devices detect if they need to be charged and dont allow it to be charged if it is already full.

    Sansa c240 battery issue


    Does it indicate that it is fully charged? If it does, I would return it or have it replaced. You have a 1 year warranty from SanDisk. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 If not, try using a different USB port on the computer, preferably one in the back. Best of Luck.
