Question about Canon Cameras

Open Question

I have a Canon CB-5L Battery Chargerthat has just gone Faulty. There is 230 Volts going into the charger, but there is NO DC 8.4 Volt 1.2 Ampere Output between the Plus and Minus Pins. How can I open it to have a look at it to see what is wrong? I have a reasonable knowledge of Electronic and Radio Repairs and I am sure that I could repair it after checking it with my Ohm/Volt/Amp Meter. However, it seems designed NOT TO BE OPENED for Servicing!!! Many Thanks, Brendan Kilbride.

SOURCE: using battery charger overseas

it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

SOURCE: Not charging

Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery!).

The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.

What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.

Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.

Bingo, no problem!

Hi Gary
Is the camera under warranty and registered with Olympus? If not registered, make sure you do that online first. It also extends your warranty to 13 months. If no receipt, It was a gift.
You most likely have a bad lens assembly (was it dropped?) or microprocessor. Here's your link...

ok, connect the amp positive to the positive end of one sub coil, take the negative of that coil, and run it to the positive of the second sub coil, then run the negative out of the second sub coil to the negative of the amp.

Battery and or charger won't work. Charged a full 18 hrs. Help


Possible suspects are:
1. A severely drained battery.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Okay, I'm working on a scooter for my nephew that originally came with (2) 12 volt 12Ah batteries minus the charger. and I know I need to replace them with (2) batteries of the same 12 volts and lets


not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.
And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.
At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.
The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.
3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.
5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter
All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

If the player has a rechargeable battery older than 2 years, it is probably going to need to be replaced. Look at the volts-Ampere-hours rating, and replace with same volts more ampere-hours AH rating.

I have one i2! which I used to use with an iPod, but now I tried to use it with an iPhone and with an iPad, and the USB doesn't show the charging capability any more. Does the i2! not work with iPhone and...


All iPhones and iPad's charge with a USB cable. Everybody knows that. What moest people don't know is that it's a bit more technical then that. Every USB port has an electrical voltage of 5 Volts. The voltage of a electrical socket is in Europe 230 or 240 Volts, in America it is (i think) 110 Volts. In a car there is a voltage of 12 Volt. An adapter (charger) will convert a higher voltage to the 5Volt needed for the USB-port. Now i did talk about voltage, but not about current. The current is the amount of electricity running through the device. An old ipod can charge with a current of about 700mA (milli Ampere). Newer iPod's and all iPhone's need 1000mA (or 1A = 1 Ampere). An iPad needs even more. The largest component inside an iPad is the battery. It would take too long to charge this large battery at 1000mA (1A) so it needs 2100mA (2,1 A). If you check the label or the printed information on your FM-transmitter you will see the Ampere rate will we too low, and that's why your other devices won't charge. I suggest you to go to a store and buy a compatible charger or FM-transmitter.

I bought a new 9.6V NiCd pack battery but after I charged it the car run only 1 min or less. I measured the pack and it shows only 4V. I'd appreciate your comments.


  • A 9.6 volt battery should read around 10 volts or higher after a full charge. If your battery only worked for a minute and has 4 volts then you received a bad battery and it should be returned for a properly functioning battery. Or your battery charger is not charging properly.
  • It's simple enough to test. Get a volt meter and set it to DCV (DC Volts). Now turn the charger on as if you were going to charge the battery. Now place the positive terminal in the positive side of the connector on the charger. Do the same with the negative side. If it does not read AT LEAST 9.6 Volts (probably more like 10.2 - 10.5 Volts) then the charger is not putting out enough to charge the battery. A new battery charger will be needed.
  • If the volt meter reads anything lower than 9.6 then the battery is bad and you will want to get it exchanged.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Why can't you buy the 230 volt DC18RA charger in europe (amazon.europe country) and use it. I had the same issue yet i burned out the fuse in the 110 volt DC18RA charger because i plugged it into the wall just using an adaptor. Lesson learned. Therefore, my first solution was that i bought a converter from 220V-to 110 Volt. This showed me that my charger was done. So instead of getting another 110 volt charger sent here to Europe from Canada, I returned the converter and have on order a 230 volt input DC18RA charger from amazon.de which has the same 7.2-18V output. I have been told this will work yet the fear, and I don't know why, is that it will burn out the batteries in a year or so. It is difficult getting specific information from Makita, but I hope it all works out. Best of Luck for you

Versapak battery will not hold charge


If it is an old battery (3 plus years) it probably needs to be replaced. The other failure point is the charger. That can be checked with a volt meter. should be about 4 volts for each battery in the system. 1 battery 4 v, 2 batteries 8 v. Depending on the system it maybe either ac or dc. Try both with your volt metter.
Amazon seems to have the least expensive replacements.

My DC16 will start and then stop. I have to take


My DC16 also had charging problems. I called Dyson and they sent a new charger. The old charger only produced 23.6 volts DC, not the rated 28 volts DC. The new charger has a thicker round wire and produces 28.1 volts DC. Put a volt meter on your charger terminals and see if it is producing enough voltage to fully charge the battery, 28 volt DC. If not you need a new charger.
