'C' batteries in the US are 1.5v, AFAIK. Your total voltage may be too low to power the device.
i'm not very good in english but i will try to explain the problem. a while ago i bought the harman kardon go plag micro. everything works fine as long as it is connected by the ac-adapter. but i bought this thing so i could take it everywhere i go.
in the booklet of the device it says it needs 8 c- cell battery's . so i bought them and tried to place them but they didnt fit. i read the user manual again and it really says 8 c-cell battery's. no matter how i tried, the battery's wouldn't fit. i tried battery's of other brands and even rechargeble battery's but nothing fits.
i decided to shorten the springs so they would fit. now the battery's do fit but still no sign of life on the device. al the battery's i used were fully charged and brand new. i tried several things including cleaning the contacts and stuff, but nothing works...
i lost al hope and i don't have any clue of what to do. do you guys know how to solve this? and if not, do you know how to open the device so i can look if there are any wires broken or damaged?
please help me
i used c-cell battery's of 1.2 volt / 2600 mAh
harman kardon says any c-cell battery's would work
