Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Won't turn on, won't take a charge.

3 months old, has been charging for days and nothing. Have checked the fuse in the charger and it is fine. Is there anyway to bring this back or should it go back to Garmin for a bigger problem.

I would recommend returning it to the store you bought it if their return policy allows. Its much quicker and less hassle. Other wise you will have to send it in to Garmin yourself to have it repaired under warranty.

Acer aspire m5 won't charge


it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue (http://www.laptoprescue.com/laptop-repair-2/). Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

Battery charger on quantum electric wheelchair starts out ember color then starts flashing red I check wires everything is plugged check it about 3 months ago everything was ok now th chair won't


Did you charge it at all during the 3 months? Did you store chair on a full charge? Check to see if batteries are dead. Batteries should be disconnected and/or stored on a full charge. If left connected they should be fully charge every week.

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Low battery backup


Have a read of the trouble shooting guide here,
http://www.razorama.com/razor-installation-guides.html

It sounds like a fault with the charger. Test the charger output with a voltmeter to confirm correct operation. IF OK then check the wiring , fuse, switch conections between the charger and the battery.

W20i charged phone, took phone off charger, phone went dead and won't turn on. phone is six months old and had no problems


Hello,

As you have got this problem and cell is only 6 months old. Pls get it replaced under warranty.
Do carry the invoice with date to the service center.
Alternatively also check the charger, as sometime the cell shows charging due to inserting the pin and a low current passes through but still charger is faulty. Try using some other charger and then go ahead.

Regads,

Richee

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...


Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

2003 Yamaha 650 Classic No power from the battery or a charger.


At 55 amps you could charge the batteries on the space shuttle. A 2 amp charger is plenty. You cooked the three year old battery so a new one will be needed. Get the new battery then worry about the fuses only if the bike is still dead. The fuses are under the battery side cover if I recall correctly. Look under the seat if not by the battery.

Please rate this solution as a " FixYa ". Thanks!
