The batteries are terrible on the 6400. I hardly ever use it on battery, but my first battery died after only about 12 hours (really) use. The backup battery is failing now. It says it's fully charged when I check, but the power disappears after about five minutes of use.
The Dell forums show this is a common problem but Dell hasn't issued a battery recall or a fix. The batteries aren't covered, even though they are hardly ever used, and as far as I know, there's no way to know how much they've been used.

Re: Blinking red light
blinking red light with battery icon means that you are running out of battery power. if the computer is plugged in to the wall and it still does the same thing you may have to replace the ac adapter or charger. the charger should have a green light on it to indicate it is getting power.

So what does your mechanic think is wrong ? Battery dies overnight while sitting or when driving the battery goes dead ? Two different problems . Going dead overnight means there is a parasitic drain on the battery . ( something is staying on ) Going dead while driving means the alternator isn't charging the battery .
i guess you mean starter is dead, and all lights dead.
the battery is dead, did you jumper cable start it?
if that works the battery is bad, dead or only dischanged.
if that dont work make sure the battery cable lugs are cleaned.
no rust on cable ends( that green junk there that all cars get)
if the head lamps die (they work key off so...)
then the battery is dead, or rusty lugs.
if battery is dead, charge it. using a charger.
im moved you.
no power mean the voltmeter is not 12v>???????
the fuse has 2 ends, no power to me means both ends, right.>?
what fuse box, cab or bay?
that means the power ;means the fuse in cab is dead because the
MAIN fuse in the BAY is blown.
just like you home there are main fuses then sub branch fuses.
then the battery, its dead, all is dead.
1 step at time use the voltmeter and walk backwards to battery
and find the OPEN circuit. whomever it is. (chips fall where the may)
as will TRUE cause.
The Kidizoom is a camera, not a battery charger. If you wan to use rechargeable batteries, you'll have to charge those batteries in a separate, appropriate charger.
If by "dead" you mean a broken, defective, or past end of life battery, then there is nothing you can do to charge it again. If you simply mean a completely drained battery, put it into an appropriate charger and charge it following the instructions for that charger.
That problem means your battery is dead, and needs to be replace!
Check the physical and voltage output of your battery, if its bloated, that means battery is dead.
If no power output from battery and its not bloated, the internal circuit in the battery is dead.
Hope that explains everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!
Sorry, but this indicates very strongly that your battery is completely dead. To confirm this simply wipe the terminal of your battery very well and hold the terminals of the battery to your tongue. If battery is working, you should fill a sensation in your tongue at the instance of contact, otherwise you just got the confirmation you need that your battery is dead. I mean dead, not low, but dead. Change the battery.
check the batteries..charge them and use it..may the battery must be worn out so replace the batteries...or only keypad lights are on and display is off then replace the display..an new display would b around 300 INR.
