Archos 605 (160gb) Plugged dvr into 6 volt dc auto power supply, oops it takes 5 volt. Only had it plugged in for about 10 - 15 min. When I removed from dvr cradle the charging light stayed on, although it dimmed. I let it play out until it shut down, about 2 hrs. Now when I put it back in the dvr or use the usb cord it shows charguing status but even after many hours it does not show full charge (charging light does not start to blink indicating full charge. Now it will not power on. I've done a reset, nothing. It is now dead as the old door nail. HELP, I really need to get this thing up and running. THANKS, Bill

Hi

Check for an internal burned component such as a capacitor,also check for the diodes in the power supply circuit.

    If your Archos DVD Players is also heating up then the capacitors inside are burned and need to buy new electrolytic capacitors of same rating and replace them but it is recommended to get it done by a technician.



    Please revert for any clarifications.



    Thanks

Having problems gettin sky channels through archos i get to setting infrared settings and can not get code.dont know wether to connect dvr t the tv or the sky box


Remove the DVR station from the box, and attach the DVR adapter plate (found in the
DEVICE box); it is correctly attached when it clicks on.
-Take the Black Audio/video Marked "output" cable, and insert the connections into the corresponding coloured sockets, yellow>yellow, green> green etc. Make sure they are
inserted into the TOP row on the back of the DVR Station "Marked Out". The remaining
black connector should be plugged into the SW socket, which can be found underneath
the orange socket on the back of the DVR station. (If after setting up your ARCHOS the
picture is very green remove the black cable from the SW socket)
-Plug the SCART connector into the SCART socket on your TV set. These are usually
marked AV1, AV2, or Ext 1, Ext 2, L1, L2, Line in 1, Line in 2, Aux 1, Aux 2, make sure you
select the corresponding channel above (ie AV1 AV2 etc) on your TV set when you turn on
the TV.
-Attach the UK plug adapter to the Mains charger, and plug the charger into the DC-In
socket on the back right of the DVR station. Turn the mains on at the socket.
-Insert the powered off ARCHOS unit onto the DVR station, the unit will now power on,
and ask if you want to 'Switch to TV out', select 'Okay'. The 'TV output configuration' set
up will load up. Select 'Okay'.
-TV connection: When your DEVICE is connected to the optional DVR Station you need to
select the type of video output (Composite, S-video, component, RGB, HDMI etc), based
on how you have connected the DVR Station to your TV and what possibilities your TV will
allow. For the cables supplied and the instructions aboce you will need to select either
RGB or Composite. Use the arrows to go through the options and select either RGB or
Composite.
-TV Standard: this should be set to PAL (Europe). Select 'Next'.
-Now you need to test the settings, select 'Okay', the ARCHOS home screen should now
be visible on your TV set. If you have nothing showing on your TV, scroll through the
AV/Ext channels, the channel will correspond to the AV/Ext socket you connected the
cable to on your TV set. Use the ARCHOS remote to select 'Okay'; you have now set up
the output connection settings for your DVR station.
-You may need to adjust your output from the ARCHOS to match your TV, from the "TV
Format" options. Use the arrows on the ARCHOS remote to select the format of your TV
screen, so the ARCHOS unit outputs the correct picture size (ie 4:3 / 16:9 etc). Use the
arrows on the remote to select 'Next'.

Plugged the chair into 220v electricity supply. i just wanted to know if there's a fuse that i can change or a circuit breaker that i can reset, and its location. Best regards, Graham D. Jjoseph


WOW!! Big OOPS huh? You probably blew the charger with that jolt. Does your joystick come on at all? Since the charger is connected to the controller or Power Module I hope you didn't blow that up. If you have a digital voltmeter you can set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the charger port located under the front of the joystick. You should read the battery voltage ot 24 - 30 volts. If you don't get anything at the joystick then you will have to remove the seat to get access to the batteries and check the fuses located on the positive posts of each battery. If those are not blown and you still don't have power to the joystick then I'm afraid you blew the controller cause there's no fuse for it. Sorry but if Medicare paid for your chair then you can call a repair service like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 to have them fix it for you. I might not mention that you plugged into 220 volts tho. Hope this helps

During a recent storm our power went out and a family member was on our Gateway 504GR. Since the power came back on, the computer will not turn on. It was plugged into a surge protector and all other items...


Suggest the Power Supply took a 'hit' from the storm. Hopefully this is all that received the power surge.

Surge protectors are a necessary item, but in reality it takes an Expensive surge protector, for defense against a lightning storm, and even that isn't a sure bet.
(Lightning strikes can produce over a Million volts)

Also, I have had three surge protectors where just THAT receptacle was bad.

"Hmmmm, surge protector power on LED is lit. Printer has power, monitor has power, and router has power. Surge protector must be good."

NOT.
Just THE receptacle the computer was plugged into was bad.

Past this test, I would suggest diagnosing the Power Supply.

A) Test the Power Supply voltages

B) Use a KNOWN to be Good, Compatible power supply, for a test unit.

C) Buy a power supply, and replace it.
Granted, not a professional approach, and could result in a waste of money.
Some do approach repair in this manner, however.

Going backwards.

C) The Gateway 504GR desktop computer uses an ATX style of power supply, and is rated at a maximum Wattage rating of 300 Watts.

(ATX case is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall)

Gateway Support > 504GR desktop computer > Support Documents main page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/4365nv.shtml

If you Left-click on - Components, you will see a list of components used in the 504GR.
Scroll down to the heading - Power Supplies

Left-click on the blue -
102015 - 300 Watt Power Supply, heading.

It's just a generic ATX power supply with a,

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

[ Power for the Intel Pentium 4 processor. Plugs into the motherboard ]

3) (1) SATA power cable

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

[Power for the SATA harddrive ]

4) At least two 4-pin Peripheral power cables,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

[Power for the CD drive, and the DVD drive ]

This is just one example of a decent, reliable, economical Power Supply, that will fit the bill,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1389575&CatId=1078

B) The above explains the minimum Wattage needed for the test unit, the size, and shape of the case, and the needed power cables, in case there is a power supply around to use for a test unit.

(Some have an older unused computer sitting in a closet, or what have you. The computer can be temporarily cannibalized for the power supply)

1) That SMPS (Switched-Mode Power Supply) puts out three DC voltages.

A) 3.3 Volts
B) 5 Volts
C) 12 Volts

(Two C cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

The test is done for the 12 Volt power rail.
ALL Yellow wires in the various power cables, are 12 Volt wires.
They all go back to one 12 Volt power rail inside the Power Supply.

[Orange insulated wires are 3.3 Volts.
Red wires are 5 Volts ]

11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply.
Less than 11 Volts means it's time to replace.

You can use a multimeter to check the 12 Volt power rail, or a power supply tester.
One example of a power supply tester,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5250576&CatId=5471

An economical multimeter good enough for this test, can be purchased from $5 to $12.

The Power Supply is unplugged from power.
The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter, is connected to ANY Yellow wire.

The Negative (Black) probe lead is connected to ANY Black wire.

(ALL Black wires are Ground wires. They all go back to one central Ground source inside the PSU.

{Power Supply Unit. Another term for Power Supply. Also another term for the SMPS, used in personal computers)

I HAVE A PRO -34 SCANNER AND NEED THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER ADAPTER, OLD ONE WAS CAT.# 270-1560 WHAR IS THE NEW ONE I NEED. AND WHERE CAN I GET ONE. HAVE BEEN TO 6 STORES LOCAL, AND NO ONE KNOW'S.


You need a 9-volt automotive power supply, but I couldn't find the plug type that the scanner needs. Radio shack, and probably stores like Wal-Mart carry them. Just take the scanner or old supply with you to check the plug size. You can also use a universal supply, such as this one that I found on eBay:

No power


If you have a multimeter, put it onto the DC voltage setting. Pull the plug out of the back of modem, and put one probe on the outside of the plug and one on the inside. If the multimeter reads a voltage somewhere between 6 and 15 volts, your modem is hooped. If it reads below 5 volts, you need a new power supply (plug).

I have a CMZ984 coleman portable rechargeable bug zapper.I have lost the manuel and charger for it.It is 4 watts.The company that made it for Coleman has gone out of business.It is about 2 years old.What...


The CMZ984 takes 6 volts DC at about 850 ma or 0.85 Amp. The problem is finding a plug that will attach to the Coleman charging port. Use the Radio Shack universal DC power supply. This is a little unit that comes with an assortment of plugs and has a number of switches on the Radio Shack DC power supply. (1)-Find a plug inside of the Universal DC power supply that fits without forcing, (2)-set the voltage to 6 volts and (3)-the polarity to "+". When the universal power supply is plugged into the bug zapper and the universal DC power supply set at 6 volts, turn on the BUG ZAPPER. If the lights inside turns on when the battery is dead then you probably have all switches set correctly. At yard sales, this UNIVERSAL power supply sells for about $1. It comes with a number of different plugs. Don't forget to write the voltage and polarity on the bottom of the bug zapper for the next time.

We had thunder storms my tv 65613 has a green blinking light wont star


Good Day,mikeybecerra; TV wont come on mb try these 6 items, please pay attention to the blinking light (it's a code) : 1. Check for no 8.4 volts DC at pin 3 of PC9A10 on the Power PCB, if low or missing replace PC9A10 part # 268P058020. 2. LED does not blink at plug in. Check for 3.3-volts DC at connector RF pin 3 (system reset) if low or missing suspect the reset switch S7L20 part # 432P109010 on the Control PCB. 3. LED does not stop blinking after plug in. Verify the standby supplies, 12-volts at connector KA pin 17, 6-volts at KA pin 18 and the 28-volts at KA pin 19, if the supplies are present suspect the DM PCB part # 934C067001 4. LED does not stop blinking after plug in. Check C9B01, C9B02, C9B10, and C9B11 (1000 UFD 16) on the DM PCB, if they are bad replace them with part # 181P734030 (680 UFD 16 V). LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. 5. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. Check for 3.2 volts DC at connector RF pin 4 and 5 on the Signal PCB if low suspect problems with the switches/buttons on the Control PCB part # 935D736001 6. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. Keyboard is not locked and key inputs at connector RF pin 4 and 5 check good suspect the E2P PCB part # 934C061001. Good Luck, big IRISH.
