Question about LeapFrog Leappad Plus Writing

1 Answer

I thought the batteries were being drained over night each time I had to replace them. Then after replacing them about four times in twenty four hours, I repeatedly pressed the power button and eventually the game turned on. So now I am thinking that the power button has issues or something is not quite secure inside. Have any ideas on how to fix it. I could take the thong apart if necessary.

Sounds like a stuck pen button or the pen wire is pinched (look in the battery door at the pen wire).
Although it very well could be something (spilled) in the power button.
Don't take it apart too far.. once the membrane on the touch screen is disturbed or taken apart, it'll never work right again!
For a whole replacement leapPad, try a thrift store. I see them all the time, all models, under $20, sometimes under $5. (I have a 4 year old son and he destroys everything!)

Where to access the battery compartment to replace batteries on Tasco NV 356


It could be on the top with a small hatch door that holds two AA batteries. Also, there could be a screw in cap on the back that could hold one or two CR123A 3 volt batties.

Unless it has finger crip lever on the top, this piezo electric plunger. The plunger needs to be activated about twenty plus times to build some current for the storage capacitors that will charge a small batteries. stewbison

My year-old LG phone (Verizon carrier) completely dies every time I fly. I turn the phone off to avoid draining the battery, but after a six-hour flight the phone refuses to respond when I turn it back on....


Same problem. Happened four times to me, and I thought I was imagining things. On a recent flight I took out the battery and replaced it after the flight. Everything OK - guess I'll have to remember to do that every time. Bummer.

My car discharges the battery over night and everything is off, it is a 2002 Nissan Altima, thank you.


you may have to find out if there is something staying on with the key off.but since the first time this happend was the battery --fully-- recharged.this will take about four hours on a commercial battery charger. a small charger may be feft on overnight but this still guess work. if the battery has removeable vent caps get a cheap ball tester and see if it shws all cells fully charged,if no vent caps read the battery voltage should be 12.7. do not overcharge it. without a amp meter you cant see the key off drain on the batterybut if you remove the cable and have a large spark when touching it to the battery it has a drain. asmallspark will be evident on all cars because there are small drains when the key is off from the various computers on the car your car has about 5. there are also certain things that remain on until timed out,when you replace the cable that will stop draing after a few seconds. so finding a drain can be quite hard. normal things like interiour,trunk lights brake lights stuck on are easier to fix.

When charged V2 does'nt hold charge for long.


Hi.
Most likely this kind of problems occurs when the battery is exhausted after a long time of using it.
because even intergrated (rechargeable) Batteries Wont Last forever. the chemical substances(lithium-ion) in it Drains after a period of charging/discharging(using the device).

Solution:

if you have a common Mp3 player, You can purchase a new fresh battery and replace it. its quick and easy.

i can instruct you if you want so.
First check ebay for the exact same battery that you have inside you Mp3 Player.

Learn More about Lithuim-Ion Batteries on HowStuffWorks.com

Good Luck
Thank You.

i heard this from a friend a long time ago and i believe he said after you put in batteries stand within 6 feet from the car hold down both lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about twenty seconds and while your holding it, it will make certain chirps/horn sounds...these noises are the car setting safety features like all doors unlock if it four door or only front doors and so on, but this is all i can remember...hope this helps!

Hoover ultra care 1500 large load machine CYCLE IS TAKING HOURS TO FINISH


Hi Frank,

Went through this a couple of time.  Two things, at different times.  First is it draining?  If it is, then check the motot brushes.  They cost about £25 and take twenty minutes to replace.  Mine failed at three years.  

If it's not draining, then their is probably a blockage at the drain pump.  Anything bigger than twenty pence coin could do it.  Again, easy to do, just do it outside near a drain.
