Having problems with your Panasonic Toughbook 29 Touch (P/N CF-29ETPGLKM) - DISCONTINUED PC Desktop ?

My CF-29 has battery issues

\015 I recently purchased a refurbished Panasonic CF-29 Toughbook. The unit is in immaculate condition, however I seem to be having battery issues. The battery that came with it seemed to take a charge, and at 100% showed a couple of hours of run time on the meter.But when it got down to around 85%, after running for about 15-20 minutes, the meter would dump to 10% and the low battery light then comes on. Thinking it was a bad battery issue I contacted the company I bought the laptop from, and they sent me another battery. This battery out of the box appeared to be brand new, but when installed and charged does the same exact thing. So I contacted Panasonic live help. They told me to install and run a battery recalibration download off their site. I did so, and yet the battery still does the same thing. I'm wondering if this is an issue or setting on the laptop that I'm not aware of. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If not, I'll be sending it back. thanx in advance. Sincerely, James Sposato.\015

Answers :

I'm just thinking that this might be caused by your power supply unit that came with the laptop although I'm not totally sure about this. When you are at home what I would recommend you do is remove the battery and just use the laptop whilst it's connected to the power supply as this preserves the life of the battery. Obviously charge the battery up and when it's full use the battery alone without the power supply unit. Carry out this test if you haven't done so already and connect the power supply but remove the battery and see if you face any problems. If it is the power supply then you may need to replace that. Good luck. Andrew

Battery/configuration/ Hi, I have had this hp pavilion dv 4000 for 2 years (bought it new) and I noticed that If I disconect the mains from the laptop, the screen goes blank, but the pc stays on. If I connect the mains back, the image doesn't come back, so I have to switch the pc on and re-start it. If I start the pc without mains, just running from the battery, it shows the boot up process, the logo of windows, but then stays black and doesn't start up as normally does In the 2 years I didn't u

Power my Presario R3240us has had the battery replaced (recently) and the ac power supply replaced but even with the power cable attached the laptop continually runs on battery power only and on occassion will show where the ac power adapter is charging the battery. After a certain length of time the battery icon reappears (more often than not) and will work until the battery drains. The ac adapter only minimally charges the battery.
