There was probably a small printed card accompanying the
unit which says, "Please charge for ## hours before using" -

        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?
