He found it and the charger? If not, are you sure it's the right charger? I would charge it overnight.

My iphone will not turn on but is charged


If you have completely exhausted the power, it won't turn on as soon as you start charge it, try to turn on it after a few mins.
Please note that, please don't charge your iPhone until power is empty every time, it's so damage to Lithium batteries.
If the battery power often not enough for you, maybe an external power supply can help a lot.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

Charging my juke with a usb cord


Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the remaining battery charge.
  1. Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter, and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
  2. Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction as the front of the jukebox.
    View Picture
  3. If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge from the computer's USB cable. Note: If you are charging your jukebox from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges, but it will take longer to charge.

  4. If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully charged.
  5. When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.

No problem just bought a mpd-1760 from someone its brand new never even been used ,but no instructions/need to know how long to charge battery for first time or at all //charging time for battery to watch...


Hello,
To charge the battery back you want to
  1. Turn the power off the DVD player first as the battery pack will not charge with the power on.
  2. Attach the battery pack to the player.
  3. Connect the AC power adapter and the power cord to the player.
  4. Charging will now start and the Power/Charge indicator should now be orange.
  5. Do not unhook either cord until the Power/Charge turns off.
  6. Time of charging is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
  7. The battery pack will more than likely get warm while charging. This is normal. Keep it as much in the open as you can for the best ventilation possible.
  8. You will get a low power indicator on the screen when the battery has a low charge.

As for playback time you will get about 2 1/3 hours of actual playback and about 4 hours of standby with the DVD player actually on.
Regards, Tony

Do i need to turn radios off to charge also what would cause them to turn off after i push the red talk button?


If the battery charge state is too low to support transmitting, most radios will power OFF when the PTT transmit key is pressed. Most radio manufacturers recommend that their radios be powered OFF for charging, but they will still charge if powered ON -- just slower.

Why doesnt my iphone charge when its on but it charges when its off?


This is not the normal behavior of iPhone. iPhone should charge regardless if it's ON or OFF.

What's happening is that the battery is being by-passed when charging it while the phone is ON. There could be a possibility that the battery could be faulty or there are components that needs to be replaced.

If the phone is still under the warranty, kindly contact the manufacturer and have them repair or replace the battery for free.

Good luck and have a great day!

No power


Make sure that the battery is fully changed. Now, you need to test it to see if there's a problem with the battery or with the power switch.

Charge the player and turn it on while charging. If the player turns on while charging, then there could be a problem with either the battery or the wiring inside.

If the player will not turn on even if it's charging, then it could be the power button or some other components inside the player.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

I WANT TO CHARGE MY MINI SCOOTER DO I TURN ON THE IGNITION ON OR TURN IT OFF


Turn it off and it will charge quicker, otherwise a percentage of the charge will be supplying power to the electrics, some scooters are always powered on but will not move because the motor circuit is turned off.
