Replace battery

The sony NV -U83 battery is made by cameron sino.

Do a search on ebay for CS-SUN82SL

That is the correct size, power and fitting for a replacement battery and will cost around 7.50 inclusive of p&p.

The unit I have keeps swithing off even when fully charged. What could be causing this?

This sounds almost like the battery needs replacement.
If it runs normally but for a very short time on the battery, and runs normally when on the power adapter then this is the case.

If the unit is over a year old batteries can become weak enough to shorten run times. Usually they will give 2-3 years service but sometimes they just don't last that long.

I suspect you may need to 'pair up' your phone by bluetooth first if you haven't already done so-then once they are paired the icon should appear on your unit. Instructions for pairing should be included. Hope this helps!
