1. Change to ORIGINAL nokia battery and charge it for 12 hours for the first time.
2. Reduce the screen brightness.
3. Turn of Bluetooth (if on)
4. Check if any of the keys got stuck and pressed all the time as this will drastically drain your battery.

I hope this will solve your problem.

I think the type of charger you are using may have damaged your handset, if you are using other type of charger not the original one, compare the current and voltage ratings of the two chargers, if it is not the same your might be damaged or the battery does not charge fully depending on wether the other charger has higher or lower ratings.

Is there a way to restore a malfunction on a vtech vreader How do i fix it or is it garbage Didnt have time to update the software right away and now it is malfunctioned

If you haven't tried to download the update and failed yet then you haven't felt the burn. These units use batteries so fast that they require new batteries or the ac adapter when updating. If the power fails during any updating process then the internal firmware is trashed and you can try til you are blue in the face and the update will not work. I am dealing with a unit now that that was done to. If this is your situation then. Then here is my suggestion. Get yourself a 5 lb sledge hammer (any hammer will do). Place your VTech Reader on the ground and smash it to bits. Then vow never to buy another of these aggravating pieces of trash. Buy a children's level book and sit down and teach your own child to read.

Battery appears to be running down too fast

Unfortunetly there is not a fix for that. The normal cause is a bad battery, but since it is still doing it there is little that can be done.

Did anything in particular happen to the phone before the problem started ?

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Safe mode!

I can help you with your Harmony One Remote Control.

Replacing the firmware in your Harmony One is the way to get it out of Safe Mode.

To help you make sure the firmware update is successful:

  1. May I suggest you make sure you are running the latest Harmony Setup Software (V 7.7.0).
  2. Replace your remote's batteries with fresh ones. It is important the remote has sufficient, unvarying power when updating firmware.
I hope that helps.

Dell Inspiron 6400

How old is the battery? The battery is considered a consumable product. It really has to be replaced usually after a year or so. You may try updating your computer's bios software though to see if it will correct it. Updating this software is a bit risky and if not done correctly may further damage your system's motherboard.
Click this to see the instructions on how to run the update.
Click this to start the update. It can only be run though if the battery still has 30% charge. If you get an error during the update, you must replace the battery.

Power supply and CPU fans spin fast

There may be no problem here. Has it always done this? Usually when executing some major tasks the CPU gets hotter and sends a signal that it requires the fans to work harder to keep from overheating. This may be normal.
hope this helps!

Replace battery on Nuvi 350

Replacing the nuvi 350's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 350 is back up and running smoothly.

Motorola q shuts itself off

I am afraid there can be a plethora of possible problems here. But I recommend trying a few things before going to your dealer. First, try removing the battery and replacing it. Second, I recommend quality battery care. Read the owners manual for how to maintain your battery. It may be helpful to allow your battery to run all the way down. Then recharge it to full (but do not overcharge your batter). Then run it all the way down again. Third try replacing the battery or having a second one handy. Fourth, try removing any programs you added and then reinstall them one at a time. Finally, IF ALL ELSE FAILS try a Master Reset. Remember that a master reset will delete everything you have added to your phone. To do this you need to go to Start, System Tools, Master Reset. Good luck.
