SOURCE: Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle

Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

SOURCE: Charging Garmin Nuvi battery for first time

The Garmin Nuvi 855 uses a Lithium-ion battery. It is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge.

In other words there is no memory effect with these batteries and it should be safe to charge it for as long as you like on the first charge. I would estimate 4 hours will give you a full charge if you wish to do this from the outset.

SOURCE: Garmin Rino 530 battery wont charge

I had this same problem with my Rino 530. I searched google with no luck. As I was on the phone with Garmin, I put side pressure on the adapter (that plugs into the clip, which clips to the battery) and the red light would stay on. They said I needed a new wall charger and clip. So in the mean time I wrapped electrical tape around the adapter to keep pressure on it. Charges great now. Hope this helps!

My E-scape Speed Boy doesn't hold a charge, I am wondering how far does a full charge go for. Also how long does a full charge take to charge fully?

Take your batteries out, and take them down to .a battery shop. Have the battery load tested, Reading the voltage under no load conditions will not tell you much, normally the batteries voltage gives you its state of charge. These batteries will show a full charge at no load, as soon as you put any load at all on the voltage drops off and you don't have much in amperage output. The amperage is what is important when you right down to it. When load testing your battery they will use an instrument that they punch in the cranking amps. The instrument will look for the voltage drop off at a load of what ever amp value you punched into the instrument. The instrument will give you a pass\fail indication for the cranking amps value the technician punched into the keypad. There can be a problem when load testing batteries. The technician doesn't key in a amperage value, This is what happened to me. The instrument when no value is entered will use a default value, Say the default amperage is usually set at around 200 Cranking amps. My technician was either rushed or just being lazy. He set the load tester to use the default values, my battery passed with the tester set up the way it was. My battery is a 35 amp\hr battery and puts out 480 cranking amps In actuality my batteries weren't putting out nearly that much. It would put out 265 cranking amps for about 2 seconds then die. He told me the batteries were good. When i brought the batteries back to him
i didn't let him take them into thee back room. THIS TIME HE DID THE CHECKS OUT IN PLAIN SIGHT OF ME. I asked to do a comparison between my batteries and new ones. We had to retest a number of time in order to find the upper limit of the new batteries. As it turned out my batteries were bad and all my problems disappeared with my old batteries. NOTE, scooters use deep cycle batteries only Glass mate batteries if you want to take your scooter on a flight.

Now if you had your batteries load tested and you know their good, its got to be the charger thats malfunctioning. Check the charger connection points make sure there tight. One connector should go to the negative battery terminal, the other connector should go too the positive terminal and read +24v. Make sure the connections are solid.

How long does it take to charge a battery? There are allot of variables to this but generally speaking if a charger is a four amp charger and you got a 35amp/hr battery it will take roughly 8 hrs to charge. Batteries typically don't like to be cold. My batteries are 35amp/hr my scooter will go 25 miles @ a max speed of 6 mph. The run time is roughly 5.5 hrs with a draw of about 6amps

Lens won't close and On/Off button doesn't work

Even though the battery appears to be charging it may be shot. Some batteries if they run down too far can not be recharged. You need to try a new battery in the camera.

Computer working perfectly fine one day, the next computer won't turn on for no apparent reason. when switching the power button on, computer begins to boot up for a brief moment, then automatically...

It's probably your logic board. One thing you can try that may help you out is to take out the battery (if you can) and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. If it's a capacitor problem on the board that should discharge it. If that doesn't work then you should probably try to turn on the computer while holding CMD + Option + P + R to reset the PRAM. If that doesn't work then you're probably going to have to seek professional help.

I bought a new battery, the bike road fine for a while the in the middle of my ride it started slowing down to a complete stop. I couldn't start it again, waited for 20mins, started it and it ran...

One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.

All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.

Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.

I have had my iphone less than a week- i did not expect it to have problems so soon. .... i have iphone 2g my battery ran out now it wont recharge or turn back on? .... but it doesn't turn on, it...

If your iPhone's battery runs very far down, the iPhone won't turn on. That's because it's using its remaining battery life to preserve your data and settings.So, your iPhone could be refusing to turn on because its battery doesn't have enough juice. In that case, plug your iPhone into a wall charger or into your computer (plug it directly into the computer; some USB ports on keyboards don't have enough power to charge iPhones). Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. If it was low on battery and needed a charge, when it's got enough juice to power the screen, it will turn on and show you its charging status, starting with the red battery icon.During this process, you may also want to make sure there's no lint packed into your cable or the iPhone's dock connector. This isn't a hugely common problem, but a lot of pocket lint could interfere with the iPhone getting a charge.

While strapping the battery into the car i caused a very instantaneous short circuit across the battery. when the job was completed the car would not start and there is a clicking noise from the EFI...

First, check the charge on the battery. I bet, with any luck, it just ran it dead from the high current. On the other hand, you could have sent a shock to the computer: Best to try charging it, and if it doesn't run, see if you can get someone who has an OBDII sensor (Mechanic, friend, etc) to see if you've got error codes. Best wishes the battery discharged, though!

My camera(panasonic dmc-zs1) has apparently been damaged by static electricity. I did feel a static shock when i went to pick it up. It will turn on and off but will not respond to any of the buttons...

When electronic hardware take a static shock it scrambles the processor and locks most functions down. One possible solution is to remove the battery and the memory card and allow 30 minutes to get rid of any residual charge and allow the processor to reset. Replace the battery only at this point, now try your camera to see if it will operate, if all goes well load the card back in, if this fails it is more practical to replace the camera and cheaper in the long run.

known issue, battery needs to be 'shocked" back to life. Here's the fix:

"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."
