The charge of freon should last forever.It should never leak out or never go bad.You may have a very very small leak that needs a few pounds every few years.Having a hot year will cause it to leak a little faster . good luck to ya!

Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Two to three years is the normal lifespan. Buy a new battery.

I have charged up my wharfedale mp3 slimline player from computer for 14 hours and the battery icon is full when i take it off the computer it will not switch on it will only work when connected to...


This is a typical indication of a bad battery. Will show full charge after several hours of charging but on loading the battery ( turning on the device ) it will go flat immediately or after a few seconds. You have not mentioned how old is the device. The normal lifespan for a rechargeable cell is 3 to 4 years or 500 recharges from the date of manufacture, whichever comes first.

Hi my makita 18v impact driver seems to be getting alot weaker throughout the years, still works but no enough torqe


Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

My refrigerator is 9 years old and yesterday it started thawing everything out it is running but not keeping anything cold


If the compressor is running and the fan under the unit I am afraid you need to buy a new fridge. This normally means its low on freon you could have a repairman add some but at 9 years old I would recommend a replacement. But make sure the compressor is running and not just the fan the compressor will hum.

WHEN I PLUG MY TOM TOM 700 INTO THE MAINS OR CAR ADAPTER THE GREEN LIGHT IS ON. WHEN I DISCONNECT THE LIGHT GOES OFF. IT HAS BEEN ON CHARGE OVERNIGHT, BUT IT WILL NOT POWER UP.


If your GPS is more that 18 months old it may be that the battery has died.

They can be replaced and a good source is Ebay.

About 18 month to 2 years is the expected lifespan.

Its an awfully short lifespan in my view but thats how it is I am afraid.

The fact that you get the green light should mean its charging but its pretty clear its not holding that charge.

Sorry for the bad news.

I recently bought a 4 ton 14.5 SEER Rudd Spilt system using R-410 and matching Rudd furnace. This system replaced a Lennox 10 SEER 4 ton unit. Now that it has gotten hot in Baton Rouge LA 90-93 degrees....


Sounds like the Unit might be low on charge.But without correct readings not sure.
The new unit with 410 will actually cool better due to higher boiling point temp. of freon type.Poor air circulation could also cause problem.Such as dirty filter, too slow fan speed,dirty coil.Also could have obstruction in freon lines either at pump,in line set,or in coil.
Get someone u trust to check it out and ask for their Rudd Dealership Training Credentials.

Coil leaking freon on the inside unit. Estimate is $2,100!


If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only


I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

Toshiba Satellite A100 VA1 system unit model# PSAAKC - VA104C


Does the system power on using the AC adapter?

How old is the battery?

If the system powers on and runs normally on AC, and only the battery fails to charge, the 1st thing I would look at is the battery itself.

Batteries in portable systems have a lifespan of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they normally fail. This is why portable batteries have a 1 year warranty regardless of the system warranty.

If replacing the battery does not resolve, then you most likely need a motherboard replacement.
