It can be a short in the circuit , maybe in the flash unit section that is draining your battery off.
make sure the battery is charged and efficient, if so you will need to open the camera to test for high drain..

My dyson DC 59 Motorhead works fine for a period of time then just quits. The run time seems unusually short and does not slowly lose power but stops abruptly. What is the problem?


Modern lithium Ion rechargeable batteries don't slow down as they discharge, they run full appliance and then just boom they are dead. You need a new battery

Electrical short


Alternator's shot. You're probably running on battery only till it drains down.

Turns off as soon as the power outlet swtich is turned off


If thelaptop 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 andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time or when the mains power is removed. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Black and decker handheld vacuum phv1800 type 1 low battery power


Hi I know what you mean! My B&D dust buster used to do this too. The hi power boost means that it can only be used for a limited amount of time. Due to the age of the dust buster though its a sign that the battery is on its way out and regardless of whether or how long its been used or not used, batteries can lose power regardless.
Try to let the dust buster completely lose power and then charge it up for its initial burn in period of 14 hours. Also clean the connection metal strips or hole with a dry cotton bud incase there's any static or dust. Then see if it lasts longer. If the turbo mode or speed 2 is still short, then the battery is dying out.
I don't know where you are but in the UK its hard to get battery replacements for B&D products. You could check your local seller where you are if they have battery replacements but at the cost of current dustbusters it may make more economic sense to consider buying a new dustbuster.

98 Suburban: Loses electrical like a short robbing power to drive


Perhaps alternator is not charging the battery properly 
Test with a voltmeter - fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running
With engine running should read 13.8-14.2 .
---------------------
Check the sparkplug wires and make sure the sparkplus are tight 
also check the two basic and very common thinks for this problem.the fuel pump and fuel filter.
if the pump is clogged and filter is dity this can occur.as when ever the fuel gets clogged ,this would make the car stall out and lose power as soon as the engine stopped sucking the fuel due to the debris .
check out this.
thanks,please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Bios problem


Hello

Please make sure that you change the onboard battery as it is the problem for making your bios lose the time. Also note that later on it might lose other settings such as hard drive settings etc.

To change your battery

1. Please refer to the manufacturer's manual of the motherboard ... you can download a pdf version of the manual from the website of the motherboard.

2. Locate the battery and make sure it's powered off and the power chord is out of the Power supply.

3. Remove the battery using a delicate plastic lever of the size of a tiny screw driver. I said plastic so you don't short circuit anything in the process.

4. Do not touch anywhere on the motherboard with your bare hand due to static electricity.

5. replace the battery with new one

6. Go to CMOS and change settings and save them

Hope this fixya was of help to you :)
