Having problems with your Black & Decker CHV9600 Handheld Vacuum ?
Is not charging - no red light
\015 Can a battery be replaced for a B and D CHV9600 hand vac? Is it worth it? thx!\015
Yes, it can be replaced. Can be ordered from Black & Decker. Some people would say it's worth fixing others would not. Don't know cost of battery -- probably under $20.
Even if it can be replaced, I found that a dead battery sometimes damages the power plug / charger / adapter plug attached to the base. You can check this with a simple AC meter. If you don't read about 15VAC across the two metal tabs on the base, the adapter is either weak or dead. This means that even if you were to replace the battery, it's not going to be charged properly. In that case, the power plug simply needs to be replaced with a 15VAC adapter that can supply at least 130mA (original should have the voltage and amperage requirements embossed on it). Note that it just needs to be an AC (not DC) adapter in the general ballpark of 15 to 16 VAC (i.e. this is not picky digital electronics!). My various charger bases (I had 3) seem to use several slightly different adapter ratings, all for the same CHV9600. Cut off the old adapter, splice the wires to the new one (doesn't matter which wire is which, since it's AC) [preferably solder the connections, but a good inch or so of twisted wire will also work for a long time -- maybe use a small wire nut in that case] and cover with electrical tape. The power plug may get slightly warm (especially when charging a very discharged unit), but it should not get hot -- if it does, I'd just replace the dustbuster and charger.

I have a Roomba 560 (it's still in warranty !!) and, after my summer vacation, it has a problem. When I'm charging Roomba, the orange light blinks (and this is normal!) but this orange blinking continues forever.... the light doesn't change to green. If I detach Roomba from the charger, the light become green and it works normally until the light changes to red and I have to charge it again. WHY, DURING THE CHARGING PHASE, THE LIGHT DOESN'T CHANGE FROM ORANGE-BLINKING TO GREEN? HAVE I

Hi, my Dyson DC16 works fine but after removing from charge base following recharge the red and green lights remain lit and the unit will not operate until i remove the battery and reconnect to vacuum,this extinguishes the lights and now can use with no problem.I guess that the charge control within the vacuum is not recognising that the unit has been removed from charge,is there a solution? Thanks

I have the IROBOT discovery that just got a new battery. IT ran great! As the battery was dying, I put it into the home base. The "brick" is green, the home base has two green lights and the on/off pulsates red. It never charges though. Eventually the red light stops pulsating. Customer service said to reset it, clean the metal, and nothing works! They told me to just buy another one. The problem is that I know it was working! Help!
The best thing that you can do is take the charger into somewhere that can test it for the proper output voltage. It should be somewhere very close to 22 volts with no fluctuation. The charger is the easiest thing to test in this case. ... iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

I have a Roomba Discovery. In the past, I had to replace the charging dock. Then the battery died so I did not use it for two years. I finally bought a new battery and used the Roomba. It worked great. It did not find the docking station, and died. I have been charging it and the red light pulsates, but after 16 hours, it still is not charged...any ideas?

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?

The hand held dyson does not appear to charge. does the battery come away from the unit as I can't seem to release it?
