Having problems with your Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum ?

My hand held Dyson vacuum will not charge. Every time I attempt to us it I get 3 charge light on the side flash?


Answers :

My same symptoms are - after starting charge, Red light is on, then second light turns On. Then for a long time nothing happens. And later I have all three LED flashing.
\015\012I replaced battery and nothing changed.
\015\012
\015\012Imeasured Power Supply voltage and found it 24.2v instead 28v as it stated on the label.
\015\012
\015\012I opened it up and found that the three-lid chip marked 431 is faulty.
\015\012431 is a voltage shunt, which sets and controls output voltage.
\015\012You can use AIC431CUS or TL432 (TL431 has different pinout).
\015\012I replaced mine and volatge back to 28.25v and charger is now working as it should.
\015\012
\015\012You can also use any TO-92 431 chip - there is enough room for it.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck!

I want to recharge my Philips PET741 D/05 portable DVD Player. But when I push the plug into the charging point on the side of the player,at one point, as the plug goes in, there is a quick flash of red - but no more. The red charging light does not light up, and the player does not charge. The plug cannot be held at the point where the sudden momentary flash takes place

In the interest of saving electricity, is there any way to turn off all those annoying power indicator lights, charging lights, LEDs, etc? Like on the stove, microwave and nearly every other piece of electronic machinery ever made.I guess I want to know how much electricity are these things sucking over time? When I get up to use the bathroom at night it's a virtual light show!


Not much power is generated by those lights, I can assure you! Most LED bulbs are so small they only generate a fraction of money that a standard light bulb uses up. Especially if its just on household appliances. If you just switch them off at the m ... Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum

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? Would there be any point in buying a new battery as I don't know if this is the problem. The red light stays lit all the time it is on charge and when I take it off the machine does not respond at all.


The battery is located at the bottom of the handle. To release it, press and hold down the button on top of the battery case (it has 3 ridges on it). That releases a catch and you can then slide the battery out to the rear. This can be quite ha ... Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.
