First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

It doesn't power on


Your camera can be defected. If you buy new batteries, and it still doesn't work, than you'll probably want to send it back to the manufacturer. First, call them and tell them your problem, and if that doesn't work, than you might want to carefully examine your camera, to check if everything is in the correct place, and their all working correctly.

Replaced battery & pcv valve now speedomter


Under the battery tray is a common ground point. It'll have several black wires going to a connector that is bolted to the frame. Remove this bolt, clean the area up, and bolt it back in place. If the speedometer doesn't work after this, then you probably need a vehicle speed sensor VSS.

Dear kimbroberg2
My husband and I did the exact same thing for our grandson when he was 8 months old. We pulled the car out of the attic last night and the battery did not work. My husband called the manufacturer customer service at 714-256-9888. He was told that the batter was too old and would have to purchase a new one. My husband called around for the item description that they suggested and found a comparable battery at Interstate Battery in our hometown. Good luck. I know we were very disappointed when this happened, but there is hope. Hope this helps.

Battery been changed twice and after a week or two the battery will run down again


then your alternator doesn't work, that's why it doesn't charge the battery. If you wan't to know if this is the reason you can try this:
Start your engine, connect a multimeter on the propper battery terminals to test voltage level, with your car still on it must have around 13.5 to 14 volts. Turn on your lights and air conditioning it should not descend more than 13 volts. If it's less than 13 volts then your alternator doesn't work and it has to be changed.
Some people does this other test but is not recommendable: Start your car remove ground terminal if the car remains on, then the alternator is ok (If you have a tester I would recommend the first method)

Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 mins, then reconnect it and try. Sometimes it can lock out the Sirius unit, and by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 mins, clears out the whole system so it can be booted properly.

Thanks Jay!
