Hi Brian,

I've just exchanged my VRC for a new one because the power supply was zapped in a thunderstorm; perhaps you've got this one <smile>. The player itself was not damaged.

Subject: [access-uk] interesting problem with victor reader classic


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 that.

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?
