The RNIB talking book service have just sent me a new Victor Reader Classic 
which arrived yesterday.  There is something strange going on, and I wondered 
if anyone had had this problem.  Of course I can call the RNIB on Monday but if 
this can be remedied by a firmware update or something like that, then I can do 

It seems as though the machine is not recognising mains power.  If I connect 
the adapter to the product, and hold down the top lefthand key, I am advised 
that battery power is enabled.  This came to my attention because I was 
listening to a book yesterday evening, and the machine kept saying "mains power 
on mains power off", the second announcement immediately preceeding the first.  

However, if I leave the machine connected to the electricity for a few hours, 
then disconnect it, I can get a good couple of hours out of the battery without 
any problem, indicating that it may have been charged.
As I say, has anyone else had this problem please?
