Subject: RE: Recorder V1 not charging
From: rinty (rinty_at_freeuk.com)

Hi Randy,

One suggestion from a complete non-techy, In the menu for the rockbox,
under system I think, you can set the capacity of the batteries. I
think the primary intention of this is to calibrate the battery
charger, however it might also prompt the unit to charge or not past a
certain level. You also might want to check that you haven't set your
unit to "deep discharge" rather than "trickle charge". This setting is
in the same place in the menu structure. I haven't got my unit in
front of me, so I can't tell you precisely where it is in the menu,
but you'll no doubt find it.

Rob

Subject: Recorder V1 not charging

I am having problems charging my flashed Recorder, it doesn't matter
if
I use Rockbox or Archos(F1) charging with either wall wart or car
adapter. Archos says charging until the batteries die completely,
Rockbox will say the batteries are fully charged but when I remove the
charger and start the player the batteries have actually lost some
charge during the charging process. With the car adapter the charging
process won't start set at 9V, I have to set it at 12V to get it to
start. I can charge the batteries (actually 2 sets) with an external
charger and they will play for about 12 hours so I know the batteries
are good. Anyone with any suggestions.

Thanks in advance,
Randy
