Take it back to where you got it. It should not be broken after such a short time?

Grmini quest2 is not turning on and is not rosponce for charging


this is most likely a bad battery. Replacement batteries are available on Ebay and also Batteryship.com. You will need a small screwdriver (Batteryship sends one with the battery). Place the unit face down on a table. Remove the 6 screws from the back. Be careful when removing the two screws on the right that hold the flip up antenna. There is a small spring and plastic piece that can fly out unexpectedly and I will guarantee they will disappear forever. Remove the back cover and you will see the battery. It will probably be held in place with some adhesive. Gently pry it from the unit. The battery connects to the circuit board with a small white plastic plug. Gently remove the battery from the plug and set it aside. Plug in the new battery and reverse the process of putting the back cover on. Don't forget to put the small spring and plastic piece in properly on the right side of the antenna. Put the unit in a charging cradle and let it charge overnight and you should be set.

How to remove and change the battery in a Tom Tom GO 540 Live.


Answer: AnswerI have TomTom 910 in USA, (and I have one in the UK). Access to the battery is behind the front screen but the plug is under the circuit boards.

1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6)

2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now.

3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do not worry if it separates

4) Lay back circuit boards to unplug battery. Note flat ribbon cables are fragile. The 3 wire plug is the battery. Unplug wires to battery from receptacle on circuit board.

5) Remove front screen by pressing a screwdriver against the small metal tags that follow the edge of the screen. The tabs need to be pushed in slightly to allow you to lift the screen out. It may need some leverage, but be careful not to put the screwdriver to far behind the screen as there are a couple of thin cables for the connections.

6) To remove the hard drive you may need to unscrew the vertical black tags about 2 cm long. These simply come away and are grasping the business card size silver box IE the hard drive. The rubber end caps are pressed in, pry out with small screw driver.
7) Remove battery and replace. Note the two sided sticky tape around battery. When putting more tape on, be careful you do not put to much around the right hand end as it will connect with the thin cable when you put it all back together.

9) Reverse assembly. Mine works fine now, good luck. (and so does mine! BLP)
Footnotes: I did not have a Torx #6 screwdriver nor could I buy one locally. I found a #7 mini star bit works just fine. Source: Harbor Freight item # 93316, 6 piece Mini Star Bit Set - $3 PMVN - 9/19/2009
I am not advertising but Batteryship.com included with the battery #5 & #6 torx screwdrivers, a very small philips (star), a straight screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. Whatever I paid more than another place it was worth it.

When disassembling do not remove the battery clip. Just pop out the battery from the front (experienced having to reassemble that whole thing). Also having a set of tweezers to put the electrical connections back together helped a bunch.Not sure if this will help but they may be close designs

How do i replace the battery in the garmin streetpilot c330


Follow these steps : 1. Determine that you do have a Garmin GPS with a replaceable battery. Find the information by checking the manual or with a close inspection of the back and sides of the GPS unit. GPS units that have a battery that can be replaced by the owner will have a battery cover lock on the back or side; it looks like a small sliding piece of plastic with slots or ridges.
2 Open and remove the battery cover by sliding the battery cover lock and pulling off the battery cover. In some models, you may have to hold the lock up while simultaneously pulling the battery cover off.
3 Remove the battery by sliding the battery out of the battery cavity. You may need to use gentle pressure to get it to slide out.
4 Put the new battery in by sliding it into the battery compartment. Line up the metal contacts on the battery with the metal contacts in the battery compartment to make sure it is properly installed.
5 Click the battery cover back into place. The battery cover lock should automatically lock and secure the cover. If this does not happen automatically, slide the lock back to the locked position.

    The part that goes into the cigarette lighter broke on my Garin Nuvi. When I pulled it out, the small metal pieces, and a little glass tube fell out. How do I put it back together?


    The glass tube is the fuse. There should be a spring and threaded metal barrel with a metal tip that slides through it. Look for these (4) parts.

    The spring goes in first, followed by the glass fuse and then the metal tip should pass through the metal barrel. Screw the metal barrel with the tip on the end over the fuse. When you press on the tip, it should push in a little and spring back out. If you lost the pieces, you'll need to purchase another charger.

    Batterys


    1. Order a new battery. http://www.all-battery.com/ It was LG Li-Ion 18650 3.7V 2400 mAh Rechargeable Battery with Tabs. Original battery is 1,800 mAh so the replacement should last longer.
    2. Take the screen cover (faceplate) off and unscrew 4 screws. You will need small Philips head screwdriver.
    3. Pull off the front of the GPS. Be carefull with the GPS antenna. Make sure you remember its position so it is easier for you to assemble it later.
    4. Unscrew 2 small screws holding metal battery retainer strip. The battery is behind it. Pull battery out and disconnect it from the board.
    5. Cut the heat shrink tube the battery is in and de-solder the joint.
    6. Solder new battery. A small 15W soldering iron will do the job perfectly. Make sure not to overheat the battery.
    7. Insulate the solder joints.
    8. Put the new battery inside a heat shrink tube. You can get it from HomeDepot. It is ¾ inch diameter.
    9. Use a heat source (I used a gas lighter) to “shrink” the tube. Again be careful not to overheat the battery as it may explode.
    10. Put battery back into instrument and screw the metal band back onto the battery.
    11. Assemble everything back together.
    *NOTE* Lithium Ion batterys do not take heat well. Leaving your GPS unit on the dash on hot sunny days will decrease its expected lifespan.

    Delphi Nav200 gps problem


    There are male and female tabs all around the plastic case of the GPS unit itself. Gently pry and push the case halves in and away from each other. Be careful not to lose your cool, as it is frustrating.

    Quest Battery Problem


    A battery for a Sony Clie N610C works perfectly, everything fits and its easy work to do. Just cut the leads off of your old battery and then solder them to the Clie battery (its on a little circuit board) and then install, my Quest II now has a functioning battery 15 minutes later.

    Installing battery in tom tom 910


    Remove the rubber strips from the bottom of TT there are two screws each side.
    The top of the unit will then come off easily.
    Then you will see a cast iron casing the battery is buried deep in it.
    To access battery remove the circular shaped circuit with two screws.
    Then remove five screws around the main circuit board.
    Then you will see the battery.
    Then remove a sliver strip which holds the battery in place and the eject mechanism for the TT arm.
    Now is the hard part the battery is wedged in so I took a large screwdriver and forced it out.
    I did crack the casing a little but it was easy to knock it gently back into place.
    Important when you put the battery back in you will have to apply a little pressure, then do not forget to place the eject button into the same pin hole that the sliver strip sits in.
    Oh and connect battery.

    Good luck

    Broken Power adapter


    external power adapter? if you broke open the gps receiver and used any glue make sure you didnt coat the silver looking tiny metal parts or you just insulated them from the power adapter.. scrape off the glue gently with a small flat screwdriver. double check your wires to it the center conductor is usually white or red but the outer is ground or copper braid or black wire also check and make sure you didnt solder splash short the connector. gently tug on both wires if they bust loose you need to resolder proper 60-40 rosin core. adapter problems is easy . get a meter and check for voltage out from it should be like 14 if rated 12v. also you can just plug it up and trace to point where the voltage is lost to battery. good luck
