Nope thats a good thing and the only thing would be that they where all connected and not wiggling around in the port. if you give them a jiggle and they dont move then further inspection would be required.

Will not start when below 45 degree ambient temp. Cranks but no start. While cranking the tach does not see any rpm. Put jumper cables on ad car will start. I am thinking crank position sensor.


I am thinking that battery does not have enough capacity to turn engine over fast enough for crank sensor to see (ooh yeah they have a min rpm too)
as with most computers today lots of things going on all at once like counting 15 rpm of crank shaft before turning on fuel injectors

Open error mean there is no soldering probe been install. use your button to switch it to the other where your probe been installed. You will see on your display there is blinking bar, if that bar is on the right that mean you are using the right port and if that port is open or no soldering probe plugin it will give you an message which is "Open Error". Just use the button to switch it left or right.

Troubleshoot master cylinder on 1999 kia sportage


This is not a master cylinder problem, it an ABS hydraulic control sticking, the ABS in this is what we call "Active ABS", this means it can provide brake activation with bo driver pedal input. 1st have the system scanned for fault codes, if none are found I would be suspect of the ABS unit.

The down button on my Sega Master System controllers won't work when they are plugged into the first controller port (Fine on the second). I have already taken apart the system and tried to clean up...


Hey there.
In your case, there is only one real solution: get another controller. You will save both time and money, and you will know that you'll have a working controller. Chances are you will not ever be able to fix that problem, even with soldering.
You could start by browsing ebay:
http://video-games.shop.ebay.com/System-Accessories-/54968/i.html?rt=nc&Platform=Sega%2520Master%2520System&_nkw=sega%20controller&_catref=1&_dmpt=Video_Games_Accessories&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282
If you really want to try to spend some time repairing it, that video could help you understand the controller a lot more:

How do you get the back off I unscrewed four screws but it does not come off


Normal 0

To whom it may concern


if you don't have 31XX or 4XXX model then let me know what you have


Ill assume you have either a 31XX, 4XXX model since those are the ones that are alittle harder to get apart then any other Magellan. Read below what I have replied to others with this question.



You have to be careful taking them apart or youll Break the power port and the head phone port right of the board And it will probably screw the board up. had a few were ppl tried to Take them apart the wrong way and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk)


Note: always start on the side opposite the power port


Anyway, after the screws are out, use your finger nail if you can,(that's what I use) if not get yourself a very small flat screw Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port (pictures below) and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom, Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seem and that its is separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics There are 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you put it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together.



Tips to remove and replace the port


Magellan power port replacement for the following models

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4010, 4040,

4050, 6000t and the 5310



On some models, you may find it easier to replace the port by totally removing the

Board and always disconnect the battery



Assuming that the power port is still intact and the tracers on the board are Good.



If you don't have a rework station at your convenience, you can use a good Solder iron with a small tip.




DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR
COVER IS OFF!




1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you

Can remove one side at a time. Break it at the top at the little tab!

Apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to tranfer the heat

Quicker to melt the old solder, because you don't wont to apply more heat then

Is needed)

Remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder

Then do the same to the other side.

Apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear

Terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that's connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.




The trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,


To install, make sure the centering pin is not broke off and still in the centering hole..if it is, use a paper clip or something to push it thru




Put a small amount of solder on each contact on the board then place

The new port on the board and apply heat it the tabs on the battery side while applying pressure so its flat against the board, then do the same with the other Contacts. If its not flush with the board apply pressure and reheat solder if your sure its in the centering hole

IF YOUR GOING TO SOLDER ON THE BOARD, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR COVER IS OFF!


the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t




this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;
