We bought an Air Hogs Hawkeye camera copter. Flew it until the battery ran out, then recharged it and it wouldn't work. Returned it, got a new one, and had the same problem. We have a disappointed boy!

    Thanks. The battery is the one that came with the unit. We brought one back to the store and bought a new one and had the same problem. I don't think this is the issue but thanks for your response.

Hi,
It seems as though the battery charger is not functioning properly and is killing the batteries...
I would return the charger for a new one and if they won't replace the charger then I would return the whole unit for a replacement or money back...

Hi,

It seems you are buying a defective model else Please check the battery is getting charged.Charge it with proper input dc volts and in some case the battery might be stone dead so it behaves in such a fashion.Will not charge.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Tip

Infrared RC Copters


Hi, everyone.
Ever since I saw the first advertisements on YouTube, some years ago, I wanted to acquire one of these little helis. When I finally acquired one, I had lots of fun until the little thing started to give me trouble.I own several of these mini-copters and have managed to maintan most of them in good working conditions for about 4 years now.
I would like to share some things that I have learned about RC Infrared Helis, specifically speaking, the airhogs RC helicopters.
First of all these little copters are not intended to be used outside home unless on a very calm day and on an area that has to be protected against sunlight, because sunrays interfere enormously with the IR beam with which the Infra-red light-emmiting controller communicates with the copter. I have found out that even while flying an air hogs copter indoors, when you get them close to a ray of sun shinning through a window, it suddenly drops to the ground.
Next, Most problems that I have encountered have to do with a combination of low battery power, plus trimming. In some of these copters, trimming can take a great deal of pulses before you can get them to fly right.
On the first models I would cut a cardboard fin and tape it to the front of the heli, below the nose and across form it, side to side to make it thrust forward.
Many times there were things like hairs or pieces of cobwebs attached to the axle of the back rotor, causing the heli to spin uncontrollably, even after trying to trimming it with the remote contol.
On other ocassions the copter wouldn't hold a charge even with fresh batteries on the controller. I learned that in time, the charger connector/plug may get dirty, so I usually spray the inner part of these connectors with a light coat of contact cleaner(available at any electronics store like Radio Shack) and then plug and unplug the connector a few times. This has worked fine with my older copters that have presented such problems.

Air Hogs R/C pocket-copter not functioning


your copter might have already experienced some hard bumps or landings , so you might need to check your copter circuit and battery cables to make sure they are in good condition or check the battery itself.

Air Hog Pocket Copter won't charge


If this was the original charger for the air hog copter and it just started to fail in recharging , there must be a faulty part inside the charger that is causing the problem, staying red light during charging period and never turns to green or other color to show that it was charged is one problem but when it also shuts off after 30 seconds without charging definitely shows a faulty part or parts inside the charger. To check this out you can try another good charger which you can borrow from a friend to see if it would charge your copter or you can take it to the store where you bought the copter , they may be able to confirm the fault on your charger, if it can be fixed or needs a replacement.

Hi,
You bought a defective mini copter, the internal micro relay is malfunctioning and I hope you could bring it back where you bought it. Replace it with a new one and let them try to test flight it before you go home.

Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Lens Error Message


Hi there

I had the same problem a year after I bought my camera. I returned it to Nikon and they fixed it and returned it. The problem reoccurred 3 times and each times Nikon repaired it free of charge. Then after a year it went again and, when I returned it to Nikon they sent me a new camera. Within a couple of months the new camera had the same problem. I have since resolved it with new batteries! The original coolpix rechargeable batteries do not seem to recharge properly so when I put ordinary AA batteries in it suddenly worked. Good luck.
