Damnit


#1

I borrowed my brothers video camera, and got some free brand new tapes for it, but the thing won’t work on battery alone. It won’t even turn on, and i can’t tell if hte charger is actually charging the battery or not.

I was gonna get some vid of me putting this B16 through it’s 8000 rpm paces, but it seems I can’t without being plugged into a wall socket. :frowning:


#2

Our camera did that to me and it turned out to be the battery. Apparently, if you dont use it often enough the battery will kick the bucket on you. :dunno A new battery ended up costing me about 40 buxxors and fixxed everything but I still prefer to borrow my sis’ 8mm cam. :smiley:


#3

damnit I don’t want to buy a battery for their camera, and I’m sure they won’t want to buy a new battery since they rarely use the thing anymore.

Re: RE: damnit…

Thats prolly the reason it crapped on ya. :dunno


#5

Yeah, which is why I want to jump through the screen and beat you senseless for sayinig that. :smiley:

Last I saw them use it was in August of 04.


#6

:fu Glad I could get to ya! :fu I think storage is the worst thing for them and I havent ever heard of any way to make your battery hold up during storage, which sucks because who actually uses thier camera enough to keep the battery up? :dunno i think its a conspiracy by the camera manufacturer. :dunno :tard


#7

probably is!

I dunno, if I have any money this coming week (I get paid, twice…) I might buy a new 2 hour battery for it.

Or you could buy a bunch of 100 ft. extension chords? :dunno :smiley:


#9

haha… well see, my car is so slow that it takes 20 seconds to get to 60… by that time I’m a good 1320 feet down the road…

[/insulting my own car so no one else can]


#10

I wasnt insulting your car…

…just your camera! :fu


#11

I know you weren’t, but somebody else cough sourlemon would have picked up where you didn’t go.

So I just got that crap out of the way. :smiley:

oh and it’s not my camera or my battery.

see? your catching on there si…lol

now all you have to do is find where the throttle is and play with the cable a little bit…soldering is a hint…

damn 20secs? lol, now i feel bad…

not! :rofl :funnah


#15

adjusting the throttle cable will not increase power/acceleration at all. and this isnt an automotive forum


#16

Re: RE: damnit…

depends, if your throttle body is more wide open at the same pedal displacement, i would think that that is an impovement in acceleration…

but i could be wrong


#17

it’s the battery. Replace it and you’ll be fine.

you are wrong

You are wrong. Simply opening the butterfly will only net a higher idle and crappier low end power. Something the B16 doesn’t need anymore help in doing.
