1. Are you using the internal NiMH battery or an external battery?
2. Did you actually check the voltage on the battery if you are using
an external one?
3. Did you try swapping out the internal battery if you are using it?
This sounds like the sort of thing you get when a decoupling cap fails
somewhere, or a battery fails in a bad way. It's packed tightly inside
I think the battery indicator on the Maxx is real, and not a derived number
like on units that use lithium batteries. So if you are seeing weird voltages
it is because there really is a weird voltage on the input to the battery
