SOURCE: Samsung L100 cant figure out how to

you can charge the battery through the camera like a cellphone.

plug the USB cable to the ADAPTER then plug it to a wall socket then plug the USB cable connected to the AC power adapter to your camera

the USB cable should have an indicator (RED) if it is already charging and (GREEN) when its done

SOURCE: Re - Lumix Panasonic DE- 994 battery charger ??

Hi Cyril,
In theory this charger is fully automatic and stops the charging process once it detects that the battery has been fully charged (it will not restart charging until the battery has been taken out + put back in).
Of course, as with any electrical item, it's probably safest to unplug it if you're not planning to use it for a long time (e.g. weeks.)
Hope this helps.

Has been charging for 3 days but does not reach full charge. Now appears to be draining when plugged into charger


Sounds like a faulty charger.have you tried using another charger.have you also tried running the battery completely flat via control panel utilities.sometimes this helps the battery renew its stamina by complete discharge then doing full recharge.lastly if the charger is not faulty and you have tried full discharge and recharge cycle it could be the battery is starting to fail.it is not a good idea to leave the battery on continual charge as this can shorten its life.most batteries last between 500 to 700 recharge cycles before they start to lose their holding capacity.

Tip

Prolong the Life of Your Battery


  1. Initialize a new battery. New batteries should be fully charged before their first use to obtain maximum capacity. Nickel-based batteries should be charged for 16 hours initially and run through 2-4 full charge/full discharge cycles, while lithium ion batteries should be charged for about 5-6 hours. Ignore the phone telling you that the battery is full--this is normal but is not accurate if the battery is not initialized. #DO NOT fully discharge a lithium-ion battery! Unlike Ni-Cd batteries, lithium-ion batteries' life is shortened every time you fully discharge them. Instead, charge them when the battery meter shows one bar left. Lithium-ion batteries, like most rechargeable batteries have a set amount of chargers in them.
  2. Keep the battery cool. Put the battery in the freezer or fridge. Your battery will last longest if used near room temperature, and nothing wears on a battery like extended exposure to high temperatures. While you can’t control the weather, you can avoid leaving your phone in a hot car or in direct sunlight, and you don’t have to carry your phone in your pocket, where your body heat will raise its temperature. In addition, check the battery while it’s charging. If it seems excessively hot, your charger may be malfunctioning.
  3. Charge your battery correctly, in accordance with its type. Most newer cell phones have lithium-ion batteries, while older ones generally have nickel-based batteries. Read the label on the back of the battery or in the technical specifications in the manual to determine which yours is.

    • Nickel-based batteries (either NiCd or NiMH) DO NOT generally suffer from a misunderstood phenomenon known as the "memory effect." As described in Wikipedia and many expert sources, the term "memory effect" has been widely mythologized to describe any and all deterioration of NiCd (and other battery chemistries), in many cases misleading consumers into further shortening the lives of the batteries through over-discharging to "recondition" them.
    • This section formerly read: If you charge the battery partially enough times, eventually the battery "forgets" that it can charge fully. A nickel-based battery suffering from memory effect can be reconditioned, which requires the battery to be completely discharged, then completely recharged (sometimes several times). The appropriate length of time between reconditionings varies. A good rule to follow for nickel-battery cell-phones is to discharge them completely once every two to three weeks, and only when you have a charger available.
    • Lithium ion batteries can be preserved by careful charging and avoiding storing them at full charge.They do not require "reconditioning."
    • Regardless of the battery type, use only a charger rated for your battery, and discontinue use of a charger that causes the battery to heat up excessively.
  4. Store batteries properly. If your battery will be out of use for a while, disconnect it from the phone and store it in a cool place (the refrigerator is good, but freezing temperatures do not slow oxidation) and away from metal objects. Ensure that the battery is not exposed to moisture; try putting the battery in an airtight container or bag. Lithium ion batteries are not rated to operate at refrigerated temperatures, so let the battery sit outside the refrigerator for at least an hour before using it again. Lithium ion batteries oxidize least when they are stored at 40% charge. Never store a lithium battery at low voltage. Recharge batteries after storage.
  5. Clean the battery contacts on the battery and on the phone. Over time, contacts may accumulate dirt. Clean them with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to maximize the efficiency of energy transfer. In addition, if the contacts are two different metals, such as gold and tin, accelerated corrosion known as "galvanic or bi-metallic" occurs. Cutting the corrosion from the contacts often requires solvents, such as acetone or nail polish remover. Be careful: these solvent dissolve plastic, so use a Q-Tip to avoid damaging the battery housing or the phone.
  6. Use a black background whenever possible. AMOLED screens use a lot less power displaying black instead of white When web browsing use sites like bGoog.com that displays a black Google background instead of white.

Headset won't recharge battery must be dead


That may very well be the case. There is a finite number of charge / discharge cycles a battery can handle. This number varies based on the level of discharge prior to charging, temperature, etc. Some devices can operate via charger alone - and others require a small amount of battery power and a charger to operate. A classic tell tale sign is an older device that has been used regularly and charged every day or night - but was allowed to fully discharge once - due to failure to connect to the charger. Attempting to charge may indicate it is accepting a charge but goes completely dead / dark when the charger is removed. That usually indicates a battery that was drained so low that it will need to be replaced. Good luck!

How would I go about getting a charger


Depend on what kind of batteries, and how often you are going to use the charger, and for what purpose are going to use it.

If your battery accidentally discharge far from your home a Jump Start is a must. But Car batteries are shallow Cycle and need to be fully charged. If you want to Set and Forget Charger, then a Smart Charger takes care on his one for the battery. Automatically adjust the voltage and turns off when the charge is completed. Has the Reconditioning option, can display the battery voltage, and can check the alternator. Destroying a $120 battery is more expensive than a Smart Charger.

I use a Vector Smart Battery Charger - 2/10/20 AMP 12V fully automatic.

Retail $49.95 I bought on sale CLEARANCE: $29.95

If you have cars not driven in daily bases, or go in vacation, a battery Tender is a good option too.

It doesn't hold a charge vary long, and right now ...


Disconnect the nuvi from the car charger and connect it to your computer's USB port with the supplied USB cable for 8 hours or more (overnight).

This will "recondition" the battery to accept charges again - as running it on the car power can trick the battery into creating a memory of short charge/discharge cycles. You can do this any time the battery starts acting like this.

Good luck!

My camera lens isn't working, how can I reset it?


it sounds like there is dirt, dust or something else in the lens mechanism. I'm assuming you don't want to take the camera to a repair shop. I've had several cameras and this issue comes up periodically.

You can try:

1. using compressed air (with as thin a nozzle as you can find) to blow out the dust,
2. try powering on the camera and zooming the lens at the same time, 3. gently knocking the camera on a hard surface to loosen the lens mechanism,
4. manually forcing the lens to go back in. This can potentially damage the camera, but it's not working now, so you don't have a lot to lose.
5. Googling the camera model to see if you can find instructions on opening the camera up to clean the lens mechanism.

¿ tiempo de carga de la bateria en lap top por primera vez?


Hello,
Sorry, espanol no hablo

You must let the battery cargar completemente maybe 4 o 5 horas if you are not using the computer (OFF) , and 12 a 13 horas if computer is ON. Don't leave it charged in the computer while computer is connected to the power socket, unless you also charging the battery.
Before charging it a second time, make sure it is completely drained. Some manufacturers (Toshiba) recommend to cycle the battery (charge, discharge) 2 or 3 times before using it.
Every month you should allow it to be drained.

Tu dois laisser la batterie se charger complètement. Cela prendra 4 à 5 heures si l'ordinateur est éteint, et 12 à 13 heures si l'ordinateur est en marche. Ne laisse pas la batterie dans l'ordinateur s'il est connecté à la prise, sauf si la batterie est en train d'être chargée. Certains constructeurs (Toshiba) recommandent de faire subir à la batterie 2 ou 3 cycles charge-décharge avant de pouvoir l'utiliser de façon autonome.

Chaque mois tu dois la laisser se décharger complètement.

Hope it helps.

I bought KODAK NiMH 2400 mAh and it isn't rechargeable when I recharge it it jus work for few minutes.


NiMH tends to have a "memory". What this means is that the batteries will get used to being only charged and discharged a certain amount. What could be happening is that the battery THINKS it is charged when it is not... or.. it THINKS it is discharged when it is not. You can try to recondition them:
  1. Charge them
  2. reset the charger and charge again
  3. put them in your device and drain them
  4. let them sit, drain them again
  5. recharge them
  6. drain them again
Do this a few times. If you don't notice an improvement, you may want to consider getting a new set of batteries - I would recommend lithium rechargeables.

How do I discharge a battery


Why do you want to discharge. Lithium Ion batteries do not have a memory, though they do require a few charge cycles to reach full capacity. In this case, discharge in camera under normal usage.

Another possibility is if you got a very good deal on the internet for a battery, say 50% off, chances are the date code for this battery, even if it was bubble packaged, had expired. Lithium batteries have about a year shelf life before they begin to fail to completely take a charge. Retailers know this and dump them onto the 'gray' market. Another possibility is if you got a very good deal on a charger for your batteries. Lithium batteries are much more complicated to charge and a cheap charger can hurt them more easily than a cheap charge can hurt a nicad or nimh.
