I borrowed my brother-in-law's c340 and it worked for 1/2 hour. I tried the reset but no improvement. He came over and found that the fuse was blown inside the tip of the plug. I had no idea that the tip of the plug could be unscrewed. the unit is now working again. Just another idea.....

These things sit on the dash in blistering heat, and get left in sub-zero weather in the winter. That's extreme for the battery! In addition to the weather, the age of your unit (you didn't mention) may come into play. I have had this happen on two units I have (one at home, one at work). Sounds like the battery is shot. I got two replacements from a company on Ebay. Just type in "c340 replacement battery". If you are handy it's not a big deal. I did not lose my favorites on either unit when I did this.
Another possibility is that the unit is not getting charged. I would check to see if when it is plugged in you get the screen message that that is occurring. You might not be getting a good connection somewhere from the 12v lighter socket to the cradle it sits in. There is a small fuse inside the tip of the plug. Hope some of this helps.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery...


You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend.
Have you checked the contacts in the bottom of the battery chamber for cleanliness?

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

Beeping


The beeping is as a result of low power. I found several articles on-line about this, and you are not alone. The best solution I saw was to use NiMH Rechargable batteries. They say it takes the life from 30 shots, to 30 days worth of shots if you get the correct rechargable AA Batteries.

If it is not power, then I am sorry, but I am of no help.

Many people complain about the life of batteries, and this beeping though, best to try it, and see.
