Question about Philips SA5125/37 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Short battery life

I just started using my go gear and the battery life is quite short. It seems that the display screen is quite bright even after it dims down. I believe that this is chewing up the battery life. The bar for the battery goes down really fast.

Get a replacement from Philips if it seems abnormal and you are still under warranty. 8-9 hours is normal battery life for this unit - the product specs are "ideal" - not relaistic. No way to dim this unit.

My battery only last 7 hours instead of 8 hours I have only had it a week


Battery drainage can be caused by many ways. Although if the manufacturer states that it can play 'up to' eight hours, then it's possible with heavy usage, bright screens and powering on & off the device may possibly shorten the battery life.

If your mp3 player has the option, you can always dim the screen brightness, let it go into blank screen after few seconds, and do little to conserve the battery. It's not too bad considering you're only one an hour short. I'd be concerned if you were getting less than half of what the manufacturer states.

Battery Symbol and "charged" stay on iPod screen


You could try restoring the software back to factory defaults and see if something is missing. Make sure it is fully charged before doing it.

RCA TH1101 MP3 Player short battery life


Are you using the cheap AAA batteries? If you are, that's your problem. Try getting some more expensive batteries or even better get some rechargeable. That's what I did with my RCA Pearl. Bought the batteries yesterday and it's still working on the same battery almost 24 hours later. hope this helps. Good luck my friend.

Insignia Pilot 80G MP3 player battery life


Hey General Chao,

Unfortunately, battery life can largely depend on how any given device is used - the louder the speakers or the brighter the LCD screen, the shorter a battery will maintain its charge. The 25-hour battery life quoted by the manufacturer may simply be an estimate based on the lowest possible settings for player volume, backlight and display settings. This means that the average user will probably encounter a significantly shorter battery life, especially when using maximum volume settings to compensate for ambient noise or other interference.

If you're still concerned, remember that you can always contact the manufacturer for further assistance at their toll-free hotline: 877-467-4289. Should your MP3 player be suffering from an actual hardware failure, Insignia may be able to provide you with additional trouble-shooting support or repairs if necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

My archos av700 has a dark screen


Managed to resolve my dark screen issue. It is a little weird and not sure which combination actually got it going but it works. I firstly connected the TV POD unit to the AV700 and used the remote and no joy. With the TV POD unit still connected, I fiddled with the battery latch switch a few times and VOILA! - the screen came back to life and all is now good.
I hope it is as easy as that for all of you....

Dying battery


I would recommend running the battery till it is flat, by playing it for as long as possible, at full volume. Then charge it up for ages, maybe all night. To minimize battery wastage change the brightness to minimum and the display to 15 seconds. The reason the battery dies is because of excessive pressing of buttons. If this fails take your player to one of the specialist Sony Places that will fix it. I believe these are listed in the warranty or the manual that came with the player.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on


I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck
