If you are getting a low battery light (that may be the cause of you problem), you should check that the AC outlet settings are right. If the settings are correct, you should take out the AC adapter and try it with batteries (do not forget to disconect the AC from the power and from the recorder!!!). hope this will help. Daniel

SOURCE: How to connect Marantz PMD201 to computer to convert tapes

You have an analog tape recorder, so you need an interface which will allow you to plug it into your computer. This kind of interface is sometimes referred to as a USB Audio Interface. I use a Tapco Link.USB, and it works well, but there are many out there to choose from - you can use something pretty simple, nothing fancy needed.
The interface will plug into your computer via USB cable, and then you will use RCA cables to plug the PMD201 into the interface. When you play the audio on the tape machine, you should be able to select the "USB interface" on your computer as your "input device" and record on the computer. Watch on the computer recording software for input levels (meters that show sound is coming in), and set them to appropriate levels, not too low, not too high (if there is a red zone, you want to flirt with it only on the highest levels) ... don't hit "zero" if your computer shows zero as the peak level for input.

Final Cut Pro is far to complicated for what you are talking about doing. Many computers come with software already installed that will make simple audio recordings like this.

Good Luck!

I have an acer aspire 5100 and here recently the


Could be a bad battery and/or charger/AC Adaptor/DC Connector. Try to isolate the problem by removing the battery and then plugging the laptop charger in and starting the pc up. It should boot on the AC adapter alone. If it won't boot on the AC adaptor or it flickers and flashes while on the AC adaptor, I would first suspect the AC adaptor or the DC connector on the laptop (try wiggling the power plug at the PC to try and check the connector). If it behaves while on the AC adaptor without the battery present, I would suspect the battery. Either way, you may have to replace something.

Navman icn 720 gps will not power on


Poss that the battery is totally dead, and therfore will not power up even when on ac or 12v charger lead. Often the battery is part of the circuit, and if the battery is dead rather than just weak or discharged, then the circuit is incomplete.

I posted on here how to remove the battery, you can get a replacement quite easily. Also would be an idea to search out a correct output charger, or maybe borrow one just to determine if the problem was with the battery rather than a blown unit.

Good Luck

Roadmate 2000 power supply over-voltage


The roadmate operates on five volts dc. Look at the back of the unit and it says so there. Inside the cig lighter plug that comes with the roadmate 2000 is a transformer that converts 12 v dc to five v dc. You used the wrong charger and put twelve volts across a unit that only handles and requires five volts.
Check to be sure that you used the correct charger. it sounds like you did not. It may be possible that the charger was still wet or was damaged when wet and that it shorted out.
Radio shack sells a charger for the car that is made for magellin roadmate 2ooo. It includes several different tips including the one that fits this gps unit and the output is five v dc. It is possible that what you smelled was the charger cord and not the gps unit itself.
I used the wrong charger on mine and had a similar problem. I bought this charger and all is well. radio shack cat no is 20-151. Get it soon because it is on sale for about thirteen dollars and is discontinued. As of today, sat jan 12, 2008 they still have them in stock at most stores. You can call ahead or look online and it will even tell you which stores have them, or you can order online as well.
No, if it is the gps unit titself, do not try to mess w the circuit board. Its cheaper to buy a new one. good luck to all w similar problems and ALLWAYS check to see that voltage and ac or dc symbols, as well as polarity, match up. If not bring your electronics to radio shack Before powering up and they can check all of this ffor free if you are unsure.

My PC won't run with ac /dc power!


Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.
