My samsung rant keeps saying abnormal stae, charging disabled. What do I do?

It is a quick with the charger. Turn the phone off then try charging it. If that doesn't work, change the battery, and with the phone off, charge it.

Battery died after braking lights woulnt turn off had battery recharged now it wont crank also replaced 120v fused

Sorry to hear your having trouble,
First let's get brake lights to turn off. For now - just remove the bulbs DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR LIKE THIS - -this is just for repair purposes.

Now be sure the battery is fully charged. Install the battery and turn the head lights on. They should be VERY BRIGHT. If the battery is truly charged to it's fullest.

You do not say what kind of car so I will post this and ask you to confirm you are attempting this much - please do this and get back to me:

1- Place the fully charged battery in the automobile.
2- Set the emergency brake at it's fullest
3- With all lights off and the brake light bulbs removed [ for test purpose]
4- Place the transmission in neutral
5-Turn the key and start the vehicle.
6- Get back to me with further comment or question.

Fujifilm fixpix f200 exr: lens will not close

Hi Dear,

This is very common problem now days with cameras. The lens getting stuck and won't retract. The reasons for this are Dust, Misalignment of the camera lens, sudden shock to the camera or low battery.

Try to charge your camera battery to fullest and then try to turn off the camera and see if the lens retracts or not. If it does not, then do not pressurise it. Doing so will damage the mechanism further. If using charged battery or spare battery do not work then my advise will be to take it to your nearest authorized service station as it is a very delicate hardware issue. Trying to fix on your own will damage it further.

If you need further information on the same please do write to us, we will be pleased to answer your queries once again.

Have a nice day.

It flashes and turns off when i try to take a picture

Hi Dear,

The issue could be with your battery. The battery might not be charged to its fullest. Hence once the flash goes off, it drains most of the energy stored resulting in shut down.

Please charge your camera battery to fullest and then try to click pic again. If you have spare battery, please try to use it and see if the problem is still there.

If the issue is still there, please do write to us.

Have a nice day.

When you turn it on the lens goes out and right back in and turns off

Hi Dear,

This issue is because of discharged battery. The when there is not enough power supply for the camera to support it for longer time. The reserve power supply switches on your camera for a moment resulting in roll out of the camera lens. But as the camera detects that there is not enough battery available, it agains rolls in the camera lens in and then shuts down.

Hope this is one of the reasons. Please charge the battery to the fullest and then try to use it on the camera.

If the problem persist then do write to us again. We will be glad to take your problem once again.

Have a nice day.

Samsung sgh a707 battery problem his stand by time is only 3 hour and talk time is 30 min only

sounds like you need a new battery...also when you buy the new battery..make sure you charge it for a full 24 hours so that way it keeps it's memory and charges to it's fullest in the future charges.

How long do I charge battery for when using for first time- no manual provided with laptop

The best way to charge any new battery is to charge it to fullest the first time fully and then drain the battery to full before charging the second time. You should drain your battery completely in order to get a proper backup.
