All of a sudden the battery packs arent working i charged them up and i put it in the controller and my controller blinks green but does not connect and i tried syncing it and it still didnt work and i kno it is the battery pack bc i used regular batteries on the controller and it still worked so any advice in what to do or if u had this problem tell me how u fixed it
well they were working before with the controllers.
Did you get a new controller? Some of the older Nyko battery packs are not compatible with newer controllers. The older battery packs are smooth on the back. The newer battery packs have "V" shaped groove running top to bottom on the back of the battery pack. I had the smooth backed ones and they wouldn't work on the elite, halo artwork, newer white, and the various colored controllers.
That's the only problem I've had with the Nyko packs.
EDIT: Don't know what happened then. I've had good results emailing Nkyo support. Here is a copy and paste of there troubleshooting guide and email.
Please try the solutions below if you experience any problems. If your issue is not resolved please contact customer support at 1-888-444-6956 between 8:30AM and 6PM, Mon-Fri Pacific Standard Time, or email us at CustomerSupport@NYKO.com.
When I plug in my Charge Station 360 the lights flash green, but I get no response when I insert the batteries.
Please make sure to remove the plastic covering that is on the batteries before charging the batteries.
When I try to use the batteries that came with my Charge Station 360, the controller’s LED lights just flash and I am not able to use the controller.
Try syncing your controller to the Xbox 360 console. If the problem persists remove the battery, and please check the barcode on the back of your controller. If the last 3 digits are 024 or higher, the controller is not compatible with you Charge Station batteries. Please contact Nyko customer support so that we can exchange your batteries for compatible replacements.
I can not charge my batteries in the Charge Station 360.
This can happen when the batteries are completely drained. To “jump start” the batteries, simply attached a Power Kit, Play and Charge kit or other USB based charging solution for the 360 Wireless Controller for approximately 15 seconds. This should provide enough power to allow the Charge Station to work with the batteries.
Somewhere in your house is the alarm system brain. Best bet is in a closet or the garage. It will be a sealed lead acid battery 12 volts dc rated for 4 or 7 amp hours ( Ah ). Its an easy fix, find the replacement battery ( Pacific power batterys on the west coast )and remove the 2 connections and install the new battery. Be mindful of the color coding Red positive and Black Negitive. New battery is $10 to $15 US.
I have an older 13" toshiba laptop and i need to replace the battery, how much would it cost to get it repaced at best buy for example?
Original, authentic batteries cost more than a $100. Do not get the cheap ones which usually are only Class A or Class B refurbished batteries.
Since you have an older model of a 13" Toshiba laptop, I would suggest you check out first the availability of your battery.

Then check if they have it here, & if it's cheaper:
If you are not familiar with these process (I don't know if your laptop is still in warranty or not), so I would advice you to call Toshiba's Tech Support hotline number (1-800-457-7777) for further assistance from the Phone Tech Support Team. Make sure to write down the name of the person who will get your call. Tell them you need to buy a new battery & you need the model number of the battery right for your laptop.
FYI, which ever country your call will be routed to, please be patient & polite to the person who will take your call. After all, you are the one calling them for assistance with whatever issue you are having with your portable computer. Make sure to speak your name clearly (spell it, if need be) & provide all the info needed & asked for. They are trained professionals for handling simple matters, so I believe they should be able to assist you w/ any issue as long as IT IS WITHIN THEIR SCOPE OF SUPPORT. It depends on the company but be cooperative because these phone technicians have a specific handle time to be able to resolve the issue of a caller, so please do not be a jerk. Listen carefully to their instructions & follow it, because IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW MORE, then WHY CALL FOR ASSISTANCE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
If your computer's 1-yr Standard Limited Warranty has ALREADY EXPIRED, then ask them politely & talk to them in a friendly manner, for they are there to listen and PROVIDE YOU BASIC INFORMATION as much as they can.
Best time to call, after midnight Pacific Time.
For the battery life to last longer, you need more cells into it. So ask Toshiba if you can get a HIGHER CAPACITY 6 CELL BATTERY, b'coz the regular one doesn't last long.
8 cell, 9 cell & 12 cell batteries means they can last longer.
Additional info, read on:
I used to work for a big name computer company & usually received a lot of calls regarding battery issues.
A brand new computer's battery comes w/ a Standard 1yr Limited Warranty w/c means the expected life time of battery is only 1 year. Same thing goes for the charger.
So, if you don't know how to take care of it, it will die out on you sooner than than expected.
FYI: I always tell my customers, a laptop's battery is similar to a cell phone's. You charge it when it's depleted & you unplug the adapter when it is already fully charge (this will prevent the battery from getting overcharged & extend the life of the battery). So for less hassle, I always advice my customers to just remove the battery if they plan to use the computer for long hours straight (more than 1 hour) and just run it on AC power alone so as not to overcharge it & shorten the battery life.
ONLY USE THE BATTERY FOR PORTABILITY, if you're on a trip, at McDonalds or Starbucks.
If you're not after its portability, use it plugged into the wall socket all the time.
For chargers, make sure you don't stretch out the cable too much that the one by the power jack that you plug into the side of the computer gets bent. Make sure this part is always straight or else the copper wires inside will break & you'll have the problem of the charger not working anymore like what happened to some of my callers.
You might want to buy this to protect your screen:
watch the video: Http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…
Protect your screen from cracks, get a COOLER MASTER U2 Notebook Cooler w/c has dual purposes. Cool thing about it is, you can position the fans on the right spot for better ventialation.
When travelling, detach the easily detacheable dual fan, then use the aluminum frame as a protection for your laptop's screen when inside the bag. I got mine from MicroCenter.com for $15, 48% cheaper than the regular $25 tag (FRYS.com SKU#: 6344931).
