Problems charging the battery?

Earlier, I plugged my View into the computer to put some mp4s on it, and on the computer it said that the battery was at 100%. When I was done, I unplugged it and used it for a while. I plugged it back in, it was at 77%, I let it charge for a while, and then the reading was 64%. The bar on the screen of the player is full, and I don't know which to trust.  How do I know if it's charging or not? Thanks.

If it's in need of battery and you plug it in it should charge.

 

Let it charge for a few hours, it should be good to go. Mine charges fully in about 1.5 hours.

The View, and in particular the battery in your unit is pretty long in the tooth by now (5-6 years). They don't last forever. Maybe yours is winding down and doesn't have any more ooomph left in it.
