Question about Samsung Yepp YP-Z5QB MP3 Player

2 Answers

SAMSUNG YP-Z5AS/ELS The battery life is almost nothing. Whenever I charge the battery (which takes 4 hours) the next day even without using the device, the battery is dead. It is driving me nuts. Am I doing something wrong when charging? I plug it into my computer and that is it. Is this a common problem or do I have a faulty device? Your help will be very much appreciated KLJD

When first purchased, the initial wakeup charging is critical to the battery's life. Try "re-setting" the Z5 (ie press micro switch, for 3 secs to re-initialise the built-in firmware). This procedure will overide everything. If this gets it goin long enough, then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your Z5 - your manual should explain how to do this. Always update your Z5 with latest firmware when available (ensure you choose the appropriate version for your Windows OS), to eliminate any bugs in the firmware. If this doesn't resolve, and is still under the factory warranty (less than 12mnths), then have it serviced by an approved Samsung agent. Good luck.

I think it says somewhere in the user guide to take care not to over charge it. also did you charge it fully and then let it die before you started using it? Maybe that's your problem, because my battery stays good for days. other than that, i'd say that it's faulty. is it under warranty?

How to extend battery time for i phone?


Ensure any unneeded apps are stopped and not running in the background. Some apps such as facebook / twitter / etc may need to be completely uninstalled or logged out to keep them from running.
Turn down the screen brightness, Generally turning the screens brightness down till it can still be easily seen but not overly bright can increase cell phone battery by up to 20%
Shut off wifi / bluetooth / gps when not required. Disable Wifi / bluetooth, and GPS will also increase your phones battery time.

Ensure a full charge, most devices (iphones included) usually require a minimum of 8 solid hours to charge, even when they say full, they are not actually "FULL". Make sure your device gets at least 8 hours of charge time before use, and don't allow the battery to drain all the way before the next charge.

Hello there. You may need to replace your battery pack, as leaving it charged for over 4 hours can lead to "overcharging" a condition which can dramatically shorten your battery packs lifespan and charge retention.
Also, be sure to charge your console while the device is turned off. Although you may charge it while it is powered on, it will take longer.
As stated, be sure not to leave the system on charge for more than 5-6 hours, as this can damage the battery and is liable to cause battery leakage, burning, or overheating.

Battery life is largely dependent on the game being played - some games can give you up to 10 hours of battery life, though the real-world estimate is really more like 5-7 hours of constant use before you'll need to recharge.

I hope this helps you. -

Frankie.

If I am made to understand, you have a newq phone, which is not more than 10 days old, and is already developing a battery fault.
Please whenever you purchase any electonic device, ensure to go through the users manual properly. You ougth to charge your battery fully, before using the phone.
This is to give a more durable and stable battery life. As the case is, damage has already bee done to that your phone's battery. Locate a good Nokia store, and purchase a new battery. This time around, ensure to charge it fully before using it.
Also, when charging, do so with a stable supply of power. Also, try to plug it into a DC source, rather than an AC source.
Hope this was helpful?
Success.

Can not turn on! my garmin nuvi 200w I think it is locked,


if ther battery went totally flat place it on charge for an hour or so to revive it. Max battery life in storage is 4 days with a good battery.

Charging it even tho the charge light may not show should build up enough charge to eventually show the light and allow you to turn it on. It should remain on charge for 5hrs.

Other possibility is a collapsed cell in battery, replace the battery

Navman wont start


well does it have an AC inlet to charge it? If so use it rathyer than DC car charger to revive a depleted battery. It will take an hour or so to get up enough power to turn it on and a few more hours to get a decent charge into it. Life of battery in unused state is around 3-4 days depending on condition of the battery. Total depletion will take some time to get the battery to recover siufficiuently to get basic operation to occur. Be patient and if this fails to fix it try replacing the battery altogether

How long does your battery usually last? If it lasts 2 hours or more, that's normal for a notebook computer. The standby mode and turning off of hard drives is what notebooks are designed to do to give you more battery life. If you have to have it on and available all the time without going into standy mode, you'll need to get used to charging it every couple of hours. If you want to get more battery life, try the following options:
1) have the display turned off when not in use (this setting can be changed where you set up your screensaver)
2) turn off the wireless function (if available) when not in use
3) have the computer go to standby mode after 10 or 15 minutes of inactivity.
4) lower the brightness of your display

All of the above assumes that you're getting a decent charge and can use the notebook unplugged for 2 hours or more. Naturally, over time, notebook batteries wear down and don't hold a charge as well as they once did. If your notebook is a few years old and you're only getting an hour or so on a full battery, then it is probably time to invest in a new battery. If your notebook is new and you are getting this short battery life, contact Dell for a replacement battery as yours may be defective.

One last thing about notebook batteries. They are designed to be charged up and run down. If you leave your computer plugged in to a/c power all the time while you are using your computer, this greatly speeds up the wearing down of the battery. Whenever possible, you should fully charge your battery and then run the battery down to 10% or less before plugging it back in. This ensures that you get the most battery life on a consistent basis.

Hope this help. Please take a moment to rate the solution. Thanks.
