    I was just wondering if any of you guys have come across something like this. My old 8300 suddenly shuts off when its gets to 3/4 battery. When i try to turn it on, it loads and works for a couple seconds then shuts off again. I can only use it when its fully charged again.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like time for a new battery. Out of curiosity has the
    battery been sitting around for an extended period and how often
    do you charge (frequently or run it down)?

    Every so often do a battery pull. The problem you get with the circuitry is the battery percentage can get out of sync. It can say 60% but really it's at 40%.

    This is actually quite common.
