    I too have this problem. I have a Sony Handycam TRV37 and haven't been able to use it for over 5 years. Warranty was over after 1 year and that's when it decided to no longer hold a charge. I took it to a shop that usually can fix camcorder problems and they told me it was more expensive to fix than replace.

I think, battery is not being charged in camera.

  1. Plug the charger in AC out let.
  2. hook up with camera, check camera wroks with charger,
  3. set camera power button in OFF / Standby position,
  4. attach battery to camera and check any Charge-Light lit?
  5. If yes, leave it on charge up to 4-5 hours for new battery.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

Yashica T Zoom dont turn on only shows battery outline flashe's


Have you found a solution to your problem?
I am having the same problems with my Yashica T4 Zoom.

At least I have a suspicion, what it could be! ;-)

I think one of the electrical components needs to be replaced. Behind the battery compartment there is a big capacitor installed. It is only to be seen, when opening the camera's body. I think that this capacitor might be broken. Since it is used to store energy, this might very well be the reason the camera does show a blinking battery symbol.

I don't think that the repair is worth the camera.

Sorry ... for the both of us. :-(

I am putting fully charged battery but it is blinking red for charging the battery


I had this problem. If you have the original Nikon charger, insert the battery and press the calibration button. I dont know how, but it charged the battery fully.

I get a blinking yellow light when recharging my IRobot Roomba 550. What's wrong?


I am afraid you are having the problem of old or weak batteries. Old batteries at times tend to show such problems and do not show charge while charging properly. For this purpose, you can use a reliable Nicad Battery Repair Guide through which you can recharge the batteries without any problem and make them work like the new ones within no time, without anyone's help and you can do this all by sitting at home! I tried it and now I never buy new nicad batteries (http://www.nicadbatteryrepair.com/).

What symbol is used when the battery needs to be recharged? Is it ok to recharge the battery before the symbol appears?


battery's life is governed on the number of recharges. so it is always recommended to recharge a battery only when it has been discharged completely. generally a blinking battery symbol denotes that the battery needs recharging.

Put in new batteries. If you're using rechargeable batteries, they already have a lower voltage than regular batteries. If you don't have enough milliamps in the battery, it will show as low, no matter what the voltage is.

Low Battery


Many Kodak brand cameras have this problem, and when I say many I mean almost all. The only solution is to try different types/brands of batteries until you find one that lasts.
