No charger for camcorder

There are lots of universal battery chargers, that can detect what voltage your battery is and what is plus and what is minus.
I use one for all my camera's. The only thing I have to do is turn the contacts in the right position. But there are new ones, that find out where they have to put the voltage.
Most of the time the universal chargers are cheaper and you can use it for more than just that one camera.

Hi I have a dremel model 780 9.6v=32mm. F013 7800 66. I need a battery charger for it. Can you help. Thanks Maureen

Same problem with my 780 and have had no luck with a genuine charger and Dremel have discontinued it. I resorted to using a 10volt charger bought online and connected the the two wires to the battery terminal. + to Plus and - to minus. A bit dodgy I know but you can't get a wallop out of 10 volts, just keep and eye on it in case you start a fire! (very unlikely ). Feel the battery every now and then and when it gets a little warm, turn the charger off and make good use of the Dremel. I know this is not perfect solution, but the only alternative is give up on a perfectly good tool or buy the whole kit second hand (drill box and pieces etc).

How can I get headphones to work with my Symphonic WF203 TV?

This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.

I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let "hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.

It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

My charger for my dell inspiron mini laptop doesnt work, can i replace it with a generic charger? where can i buy or go to repair my dell charger? tnx

Just search google shopping for your battery, or ebay, just make sure you read the details, and choose wisely so you don't get scammed off ebay. I buy a lot of stuff off there with most all being good purchases, but there are scammer's everywhere anymore.

My iphone 3gs 16gb keeps saying "this accessory is not optimized for this phone" and nothing is connected

you should try to clean out the headphone jack, and the charger part on the bottom
try going to an office supply store like staples or office depot, and buy a can of computer duster, it is compressed air which really helps to get the stuff out
another thing to do is to hold the home and lock button at the same time for about 10 seconds until you see the apple icon, then release and it should be back to normal

I have not used the headphones for at least three days. Even though the headphones are on "off" they continue to keep charging and have been for a couple of days. What is the reason for the...

My Sennheiser HDR 140 headphones charge whenever you hang them on the charger. The charger will "trickle" charge them to keep the batteries fully charged. If you find when you use it the batteries discharge quickly it's time to replace them.
My batteries are about 2 years old and I still get about 8-10 hrs of use before needing to recharge

Faullty makita DC1804T charger red lights keeps flashig and wont turn green.

I think if you have a battery that is pretty much dead, the Makita charger will never fully charge it and so it blinks. My newer battery charged up in 1/2 an hour but my old-as-the-hills one just keeps on blinking. I removed it and it works. It never really held a charge long though, for years now. It would be nice if the charger had some kind of manual telling you what all those universal symbols(I don't know who's universe they're talking about) mean.

Headphones cut in and out - distorted sound

Dance_to_it -
I have had these great headphones over 15 years (I think!)
1. Are the batteries getting a full 8 hour charge?
2. Have you tried all 3 channel options?
3. Is there anything else close by that is an RF transmitter or receiver? If so, move the headphone base or other RF instrument away from each other.
4. If these are the original batteries you probably need new ones.
5. When purchasing new batteries I recommend original equipment Sennheiser BA151 batteries, not any other brand. I have tried 3 or 4 other brands, all with less than satisfying results. I have no affiliation with Sennheiser corp., just a consumer of their products (and Grado's for wired headphones)
Good luck!
