Hello. Thank you for coming to JustAnswer.

Sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience. My name is Michael. I will be helping you with your question today. Please let me know if there as any additional information that you feel might be pertinent to your question. If I don't hear back from you, I'll provide the best answer I can based on the information you've given so far. You will still be able to reply with additional information or questions at any point during our conversation, and I'll revise the my answer accordingly.

To correct this problem will require replacement of the battery. It is fairly common as these get older. If you need to find a replacement battery, let me know and I will be happy to help.

We need a new battery even though we tried it when it was plugged in?
Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

Yes. If the battery has failed, it will still cause it to lose power.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay, we will go get a new battery. You indicated you might know where to get one. Any in the Houston area?
Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

I wouldn't buy locally because it will be 3-5x what you will pay online. I will find one online for you that you can have in one day for half the price or less, including shipping.

Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

Ok... Just put my foot in my mouth, not realizing this was (literally, at 26 years old) an "antique". It will take me a little while longer to find it than I thought but I will get back to you shortly.

Does your battery pack happen to have a part number on it?
