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.

Hi,
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.

hope this helps. thanks.

My ignition went out on the steering column on my 1996 buick roadmaster, so my mechanic bypassed it and put in a switch and push button start, but the problem is by battery will not hold a charge,


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 .

2007 jeep gc won't start. Lights, battery all Dash lights had been acting strangely before this happened. Turned the car off, Swapped AC relay with starter relay and nothing.


i guess you mean starter is dead, and all lights dead.
pointing to....
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.

Steven its a 99 s 10 no power at the fuse ?


im moved you.
to S10
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.

How to charge when battery already dead


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.

NEVER try to charge a non-rechargeable battery.

My psp can't turn on with the battery but when i put it on the charge it work .what can i do ?


Hi,
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!

My battery will not hold a charge, Even when plugged into the charger. What do I do to fix it?


Hello,

I suggest you remove the battery and put it in a similar phone and charge with your charger to see if it will hold charge.

If it does, i means the battery is still good. but if it does not, it means the battery cell is dead and the battery will need to be replaced.

The problem could also be the charging port of your phone, it may be bad and not charging your phone but if it is charging it, it means the cell of your battery is dead and will need to be replace.

Just check the battery, charging port or the charger, one of either of this three is bad.

Take care
.

Will not turn on or charge. Will not power on when hit on/off switch. Will not charge (no blinking light) when plugged in.


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.
