Archos 504 I have a new 504, which I hadn't used for about 2 weeks. When I went to re-use it, it wont hold a charge, and simply turns off. Does this mean that the battery is completly dead?

I have had a similar problem with my Archos 504 80GB. In order to repair the problem I took off the battery for about 30min to an hour so it can clear its memory. After that try putting the battery back and see if it turns on and stays on.

Zagg keyboard doesnt work


Mine went dead after about 3 weeks. Once I realized there was a charging port which is not IPhone, but droid type. Began charging. Would not recognize until I went to blue tooth setting and said forget device. Then turn bluetooth on and then hold bluetooth key down on for 3 seconds or so on keyboard. Then it worked. I guess dont let it run till it dies.

Its plug in but battery wont charge


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

I have a 1990 buick park avenue that won't turn over at all.


Check the battery's charge condition and the Charging System itself. If the battery is more than 4 years old replace it..

My toshiba laptop will not turn on...


This could be a few things. It could be a bad power cord not charging the battery or the machine. But it could also be various other things. The cheapest and easiest thing to try is a new power adapter.

Wont charge/hold a charge


That definitely is a battery issue. The battery is either Low Soc or it is a failed battery. Most batteries on PDA's usually fail within a year because of the immense amount of use the phone has and the majority of the time the batteries are smaller in a PDA. Take your battery to a service center if one is in your area or call your carrier and inquire about the warranty on batteries (usually 1-year).

Battery going flat on car daewoo leganza 1997


hi for a battery to go flat means your altenator isn't doing its job in charging it. all cars are different but it has to charge at a certain rate in order to keep it going. if the charge rate is very low then yes the battery wont last. if alternator is ok then possibly a wirring fault somewhere.

Keeps shutting down.


The solution is found! There's no need to format your HDD
So.
- Unplug the battery;
- Press and hold the reset button for 20-25 sec;
- Put the battery back to it's place;
- Charge your device (when you plug the cable in, it turns on (note that a blinking lightning icon appears on the charging indicator), then it turns off with it's "shutting down" message, dont pay attention on this, just let it charge for about 10-15 minutes (note that the CHG bulb won't be lit));
- Turn on your device. The CHG bulb is lit, Archos doesn't shut down
- Enjoy
