TRU8885 in Australia Charger/Power Adapter Issues

Hi
I bought TRU8885-3 of US Ebay (for a very good price). The phones are working here in Australia (except programming the area code requies 3 digits). My problem is that extra handsets will not recharge. Iam using a generic charger because of 240/120V problem of the originals. These are 9V 1000mA, the originals are 210mA. When plugged in, with handset in the craddle, the light comes on to show it is recharging. However it is not and eventually the handset runs out of battery.
Why not! I don't know. Any ideas, anyone!

Try to re charge on base. phone contacts base and hand set may require cleaning. the charging light may have separate circuit and may not be in series so you may get false indicator. the 1000 ma is good current and should charge correctly.

Where can i buy charger and ac adapter or battery charger for Spectroniq PDV-70x


Power adapters for most electronic devices can usually be readily found on EBay for a reasonable price.

Here is a direct link to an AC power adapter for that model currently available for around $16 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-AC-power-adapter-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-player-/250823360167?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a663cbea7



And here is a link to a 12V Car power adapter for that model as well currently available for around $13 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Adapter-Power-Cord-4-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-Player-/110734902621?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c850855d


Just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.


Just search for the term: PDV-70x in the EBay search box and you will see many items available for various prices. Just find the one you want at the best price, order it online, and have it delivered right to you. Just be sure to consider and include the different shipping charges to your location which are listed just below the asking price of the items.


I hope this was helpful.


Good luck and take care.


Joe.

I have a power wheel price fisher charger and i like tu use it to charge a peg perego battery i have power wheels fisher-price 12v and i need the conection for a peg-perego 12v. Thank you,


hi, you will have change the adapter on the charger or the battery. do you have a peg charger thats not working? if so simply cut the connector off and splice it onto the power wheels charger. the chargers are simply a ac adapter so the only real difference is the connection points. get a cheap volt meter at harbor freight (under $5) and make sure you connect the + and - wires correctly, failure to do so will blow the fuse on the battery and maybe destroy the adapter. from your question im thinking you dont have the peg connector so can find those for sale on ebay or on http://www.modifiedpowerwheels.com . good luck!

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

I need to buy a power adapter for Compaq C504EA notebook.It is only 18 months old and this is the 3rd time the charger needs replacing


hi

Your best bet would be to have a look on ebay for the charger. i've posted a link. just look around a bit you will find a lot more.

As for the ac adapter frying.. looks like you have some voltage issues. use the adapter with a powerguard or power stabilizer.

You need to register the new handset with the base.
In Global settings De-register the new handset then place it on the main base unit connected. It should then register.

How to change Flash timing


The only reference to flash timing I can find in the manual is shown below for you, also here is link to manual :
I hope it helps !
http://www.uniden.com/products/productdetail.cfm?product=TRU8885-2

If you have Call Waiting service and a call waiting
tone sounds while you are on a call, press talk/flash
on the handset or flash/find hs on the base to accept
the waiting call. There is a short pause, and then you
will hear the new caller. To return to the original
caller, press talk/flash on the handset or flash/find
hs
on the base again.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your
answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer
after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
Setting the Record Time
Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
