Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies

The low battery icon appears every time I turn either unit on. I have tried one set of new disposable batteries, one set of recharged batteries, and the Midland rechargeable battery pack. Is there truly a problem with the battery level?

Also, I may not be charging the battery pack correctly. Once I plug the wall adapter into the outlet, do the end plugs go directly into the side of the walkie-talkies?

I would very much appreciate any help you could offer! ( I am a begginer, as you can see!)

Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.

HAVE LOADED CD, PRESS PLAY BUT GET ONLY A WHIRRING NOISE THEN Er WITH BATTERY ICON ON DISPLAY BUTTON - HOW DO I GET THE CD TO PLAY?


Normally a battery icon on a display indicates that the battery power is too low to operate the device. If the device uses disposable batteries, it's time to replace them with fresh ones. If it uses rechargeable batteries, recharge them. If recharging the batteries fails to work, they may have reached their useful lifetime and need to be replaced as well. If the unit has a internal battery that is chargeable, and charging fails to work, you may need to have the unit serviced to replace the internal battery(ies) or just get a new unit, depending on the cost-effectiveness of repairs.

HD camera.flip style


Did you do the Setup when you first started it? by holding the red button and following prompts? (to set up Language, date etc.) - if not try that. if yes, have you tried recharging it? Mine takes about 7 or 8 hours to fully charge (the red light will come on then when fully charged that light goes out) - it appears you have Ultra HD like me, so you should also be able to try some regular AA batteries in place of your rechargeable just to try that. If it works then, it is your rechargeable battery pack - either no good or needs charge. also when plugged into USB that red light should come on on front of the camera and if you look at the screen it should show a battery icon with a lightning bolt over it, shows the battery -how much charged. after 6 or so hours, press your red button and look at the screen - it now should be showing a battery icon that should by now be mostly Green and almost fully charged.
While charging the unit, Flipshare software comes up on your computer, "X" out of that software, so your camera will charge faster. My camera was doing similar things but I've had it a long time, and regular batteries worked, So I ordered a new battery pack and it has been fine since. Good Luck!!!

My camera will not stay on is off and stuck with lens out


If the lens doesn't retract on most digital camera the camera also will not turn ON. It is connection or wiring between camera power and camera lens.
What Kodak Rep will ask you to do are:
1. Remove the battery and the memory card of the camera
2. Check if your using a recommended battery and if its new or fully charge. batteries for Z1275 are Ni-MH rechargeable; CRV3 Lithium; 2AA Lithium
3. Insert the batteries back in the camera in correctly
4. Set the camera in Auto mode (its the camera icon on the dialing mode of the camera)
5. Try to turn it ON
If still will not turn ON and the lens will not retract
6. If your using a rechargeable battery Kodak Rep will ask you to charge the battery until its fully charge.
If your using a disposable battery they will ask you to try to use a new battery out from the box.
After all those steps still the camera failed to work, it will be send for repair. The number of the Kodak support line is 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)

My Canon Powershot A430 will not accept new batteries. I have tried rechargable & disposable batteries. They are all directly out of the pack & the charger & the 'Low battery' icon just doesn't...


cudgegong said in another forum:

To resolve the annoying "change the batteries" problem. Goto menu, choose yellow menu, select
file No. reset to ON. Turn camera off and back on.

Voila fixed.

When i comes to digital cameras, you really need top quality rechargables or at least 'alkaline' disposables.
I would highly suggest your batteries are not "powerful" enough for the camera.
Next time you're in the shops, look at the range of rechargables and you'll see, if not on the packet, on the side of the batteries them selves, a "mAh" rating. This is the "power" delivery of the battery. Although all of the rechargable batteries are supposed to be 1.2v, that voltage can be delivered in quantities. As rechargables deteriorate, the voltage may test well on a multimeter, or appear to work well on a low-load appliance, but can not supply the 1.2v fast enough to a high-load unit such as a digital camera.
A cheap check is get some NEW "alkaline" batteries and put them in, if they work, use them and shop around for some quality rechargables - I'd suggest getting the charger with the batteries for their maxumum life.
Please let us know how you go and if this solve the problem or not, so we can chase it further should you need it.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

Camera will not stay on.....


the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
