To fix this problem you will need to download the latest version of Training Centre from the Garmin website and also update your units software.
Update Training Centre:

  1. Close Training Centre if its open on your PC
  2. Visit http://www.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=835
  3. Click Download
  4. Click Run when prompted
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to update Training Centre on your PC
Update the software on the device:
  1. Visit: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to Download WebUpdater
  3. Click Run when prompted
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install WebUpdater
  5. WebUpdater will run automatically once installation is complete
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to update your Edge
If the above steps do not correct the issue, then you can carry out a master reset on the unit as a last resort:
Note: The master reset will clear all user data including training history from the unit

  1. Turn off the Edge
  2. Hold down Mode + Power
  3. Select Yes when the unit asks if you want to erase all user data
  4. After resetting your Edge, leave it with a clear view of the sky for about 30 minutes without moving it to acquire a GPS fix

After charging W350i not recognising SIM says, 'Insert SIM Card'. But the same SIM card is operative in other mobile. How can retrieve Phone contacts? Please help.


make sure if sim reader is not pin damaged or water damaged? if problem persist i think you can connect your device without simcard and copy all data to your pc, then give some repairer to check maybe need to flash (if flash you will lose your data).
or try to put your mobile without battery 2 days and then switch on to see may be this problem solves.with S.E. this problem a normal.

The initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

Low hour, RASCAL 600 has been in clean safe storage with new batteries won't charge, no amp meter reading, no fuel gauge reading, yet charger itself has red and green light showing. If and when the...


The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

My HDD065 will not charge and is not recognised by my PC. It is about 2 years since I last used it. Any suggestions? H


If you let the battery get too low, the battery will not charge because the motherboard does not have enough power to control the charge process. There are two ways to fix this. 1) buy a new battery that will be supplied fully charged. 2) borrow a friends HDD065, fully recharge the battery and remove it. Place the battery in your player and turn it on. Put your player on charge. Without turning your player off or removing the charger, remove your friends battery and place yours in it. It may take a couple of attempts but you should be able replace your battery and keep the player operational. Leave your battery to fully charge.

New battery will not fully charge


Hi, I have three possible answers!

A.
You're computer may not be capable of charging the full 12 cells. (Its only supposed to have 6). So you will only be able to use half the cells. In this case there is nothing you can do apart from just enjoy the 6 recognised cells.

B.
You computer has not fully recognised the 12 cells so you may need to install drivers from the HP website. Or alternately if you know how to and or have the original windows install disks. Then you can re-install windows and it will probably recognise the new battery properly.

!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA - YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR STUFF!

C.
The third option is that the battery is duff, take it back to where you brought it and tell then the problem, they mey be able to help you or give you another battery.
