I had one and it was sold by Radio Shack. Big and bulky, about the size of a **** of paper. Required 3 'D' cell batteries, you could record two differant outgoing messages and would record upto 26 incoming calls of about 30 seconds each. Had it for years and then the motor started dragging. Took it to RS and their repair people did not even know that RS carried it (young guys). I ended up chucking and kick myself now days for doing that. While crude in operation, it was BATTERY powered. Oh, and unless you get a ton of calls, the batteries would last 4 to 6 months.

My response 75 since having ablip in power was

We found the problem was with the power. In our case, plugging the adaptor into the power outlet directly, bypassing an extension and checking the outlet was working with a lamp. The error lights you describe were the exact same that we were getting, caused by low battery levels.

Hope that helps someone.

Cannot power on the laptop. Automatically powers off, within seconds.

you have not described that whether it goes to shut off during running of operating system or just after starting the computer.

anyway if you are experiencing this problem while running the operating system then check power options in control panel and set these settings according to your required position.

and if you are experiencing this problem right after the power on of computer. then these is problem in computer,s motherboard or battery.

starting computer without battery and only with charger if it works well then there is problem in the battery.

Hopefully you will understand all.

please dont forget to RATE my answer.

Laptop problem

If you want to get the most out of your battery, then try not to use it very much, and if you run your laptop of a direct power source, the remove it completly, and store it somwhere dry, cool and free from dust. If your battery is really bad, then you can improve it's capacity by freezing it! This however could destroy your battery, so only do it if you have to. Details of someone doing this can be found here:
Anyway, in answer to your question, if you are using it of mains power only, then yes, take the battery out.
hope this is helpful,

Problem loading the NEW PSP ACTION REPLAY.

TADA! answer 4 u.
It's your battery. Take out your battery from the psp and look on the back of it. If, at the top, it says PSP-S110 and at the bottom it says made in China, be bummed. That's what mine said and the codejunkies website warns about that battery. Dunno where to get a new one though. Hey, diagnosing the problem is half the battle. Good luck.

Machine not answering. new battery. lights on with 0 messages.

When the power went out it may have set the machine to its default setting, "answer function off". Press the "On/Off" button to check for sure. A battery really wouldn't help in this matter because it's only there for backup; when the power goes out the batter will save your settings, outgoing and incoming messages. Perhaps when the power went out you lost your outgoing message, and now, when people call, they don't realize that that they are supposed to leave a message. One more thing you can check is the switch on the side of the phone which tells the machine to answer after 2 or 4 rings.

Recovering messages

The 1337's User Guide mentions the battery that keeps messages during power failures. I suspect those message were lost when the power went down.

You need to install or change the battery for the power out freezer alarm. Mine was just doing the same thing. I looked on the web for the answer and couldn't find it. Opened the door to look for the model number and there was the diagram for the light flashing codes. Mine's battery compartment is in the grill on the bottom (right below the door) on the left side. Takes a 9v battery. I had a power outage recently and it must have killed the battery after beeping for several hours.
