Won't Power On Anymore

I have had my 760 since December and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I use it a lot, even around town. I tried to use it the other day and it would not turn on. The power cord is lit, but the unit will not turn on. I'd be very disappointed if my unit is broken, as you know they are not cheap. Please advise. I have unplugged and replugged - nothing happens. I live in Florida... will the heat bother it?

I've got one that has a problem with the power connector. Look on the adapter thingy -- with a pin, wiggle the center power pin. If it is loose, this is the problem. Carefully use a knife to open the adapter thingy (it's glued together). Go to Radio Shack/Fry's and get a replacement power female socket that solders to the little PC board in the adapter thingy. This will fix it. Allen

Works great when it works. They are also know to freeze up. People have reported that it only works up to 6 months then it won't turn on. Even worse, tech support is few and far between and it seems nobody knows how to work on them. You can send it back to the manufacture to have it repaired under warranty, but don't look for it anytime soon. They will hold on to it for months. For me, I use a road map, It never stops working, and its always in the glovebox.

Clutch for johndeere 870


That is normal for a live pto. If your tractor has a two stage clutch you should be able to stop the PTO with clutch all the way in (as in push the pedal all the way down). It should be transmission independant, meaning it will work even though the transmission is not turning AND if you are running something that has a lot of inertia, it won't push you around by driving the rear wheels even though you have the clutch in.

Hope this helps.

Won,t turn when plugged into car.cigarete lighter has power,fuse is good in garmin unit


Check the cable that plugs into the unit itself. It possibly is damaged and will not acknowledge the GPS. Try replacing the car charger/ac adapter. Check NewPower99.com. they have a lot of inventory and great pricing. Good Lucl!
