Clean the silver charging contacts on the base and on the phone by buffing with a soft cloth or use a Q-tip. Try swapping the battery with one of the other phones to see if the battery may be bad.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

How do I fix base unit battery charging system not property working when I leave hanset on base unit automatic dead when I lft hanset for answer incoming calls?


It is highly likely that your battery pack needs replacing. If you have had it for more than a year and use it often then it is quite possible. You can buy a new one at radio shack online or search for one similar on ebay. Price is about 10 pounds though.



If you have more than one of these phones it may be worth while buying more than one as it will save you postage and might get you a discount.

Hope this was helpful

Brand new, never used. Plug into wall to charge and just get flashing red light. After 16 hrs on charge, still flashing red and when turn on, screen blinks then shuts down.


check that you have the battery in the correct way
if it has batteries like AA , AAA or what ever the negative terminal of the battery goes against the coil spring so if you have them all facing the same way, that may be why they are not charging
the screen shutting down at this stage would be cause the batteries are flat
of course you could always bet new fully charged rechargeable batteries and put them in correctly to see if the rest works

Anomalous charging behaviour :- a) plug in discharged battery b) starts off with the yellow light flashing as usual c) after a very short time the lamp goes off completely - instead of staying on...


Okay, might not be reading this right but here goes. If the camera shows the batteries as full then I'd go with that. The charger will come on for a few seconds even with a freshly charged battery because it take that long for the charger to realize the battery is already full. You can't feed an already full battery, so the charger is shutting off completely. Yes normally the light would stay on and the charger would continue to trickle a charge into it it until it is removed. In your case I think you have those batteries stuffed to the gills so the charger is shutting right down. One of the problems with these batteries is as much as the manufacturers deny it they form a memory. Best thing to do with these rechargeable batteries is drain them right down and then replace with a freshly recharged battery.

My aspire one d-250 battery doent charge


My problem was: Although the Batt Light shows the "charging" the desktop indicators show the battery is at 100%. If you dscinnect the power supply the computer dies.

SOLUTION: I found this worked on both occasion it happened to me occasions.
1. Shut down the netbook.
2. Remove battery for +- 15 min.
3. Replace battery.
4. Do not switch on netbook, ie boot up, until charge light goes to green ie indicates fully charged.

I have an HP Pavillion dv9500 laptop. After shutting down, all the keyboard lights to the right of the power button stay lit. This shows the power is not shut off but should be. Any solutions?


First of all, is the laptop on charge? Usually when the laptop is on charge there is a light somewhere that remains on until it is charged. After charging, the light goes of and if the laptop is not used for a long time, the battery usually discharges a little and the system senses this and recharges it as top-up and the light comes on, then goes off once charged. If your laptop is not on charge, then there is 2 things that could be the cause. 1) It is not shut down properly (on stand-by). 2) It may be downloading updates and it would probably shut down later, depending on the size of the update, it may take a few minutes or up to 1 hour. If in 1 hour the light is still on, then there is a problem with the laptop and need to be checked by a professional, or, altermnatively, turn it off a second time and see if the light still remains on. Lastly, you did not state what kind of lights remain on, Power, Charging, Standby, etc. it is difficult to help you with your query as the problem could be the laptop itself. There are other things that could keep the laptop on, and that may be if your laptop is connected to a network. Regards.

My ipod shows a sad face


Hopefully your ipod is still under warranty, because this is indicative of a hardware problem.

You could try to force it into disk mode and do a restore, if that doesn't work then it needs to be sent in for repair.
