    I was looking in the net but i couldent find anything. bellsouth page shows a link for the battery replacement, but that page doesnt work well.

    Same problem - I think there must be a generic solution. Could they have made this battery solely for this device? Seems like a stupid idea.

    I bought 4 of these things off of WOOT.COM. Only 2 of the 4 had good batteries. I can't find anything on these batteries and the web site is under construction.

    I just talked to an 'actual person' concerning my 2 "not working dead battery" watch-walkie-talkies. He said search for the XB10 battery as a replacement. I googled it and got a few hits back for like 20 bucks a pop.

    yes, I am experiencing the same problem

  • Rick501 Feb 11, 2008

    Yup, I have the same problem. I can't find a battery for this watch/walkie. Perhaps that's the reason they're availavle for so little money? I'll check out the XB-10. All other paths seem to lead to a dead end.

Will a laptop battery become damaged if you use the computer while it is plugged in? I do a lot of photo editing, and leave the computer plugged in for long periods of time, so that it doesn't di

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Laptop batteries vary from laptop to laptop. i suggest you Google the Internet for a battery for your model laptop.

Battery doesn't hold charge for more than a week

All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)

How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.

Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".

I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.

It's likely then that the battery isn't able to hold a charge due to its age which means you need to buy a new battery.

My motoriola defy phone wont charge it has been at 0% charge all morning.

Hello and welcome to FixYa;

Take out battery, clean off the battery and gently clean off the terminals. Put battery back in and try to charge again with your charger. If this doesn't help;

Try another charger to the phone such as a car charger if you have one. If the battery still will not charge;

you may need to get another battery. I suggest you go into your local service provider first, have them use one of their spare batteries that fit into your phone model and see if the battery will start charging.

If it doesn't, you need to have your phone itself looked at instead of the battery.

Try these steps before you spend money on replacing parts needlessly.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Not Charging Battery


Problems of battery not charging is caused either by a faulty battery, or motherboard. Check if you are still covered by warranty. In some laptops, they replace the motherboard and ac adapter.

Hope this helps

1998 honda vtr firestorm starting problem

Hi Samantha!

Yepp, i know whats wrong. Its the generator on your bike that dosent work properly. The generator dosen charge your battery. So when your drive the engine, the lights, the flash etc take all the power of the battyre and since the genarator coulden charge it properly it dies.
Buy a new, or if you can find a used, generator and replace it, alternative take the generator to someone that can pull it appart and replace the coals in it. Sometimes thats more expensive to change the coals then it is to buy a used one.

Good luck with your bike
