Hello jonny_tindl,

This is a common problem, it has a two-fold solution. First of all marine equipment needs to be routined this is often not done. What I mean is that the first thing I would suggest is the at least twice a day you start up the engines on your boat to keep the battery charged. This is called a power routine the goal is since equipment now employs vampire powering (slow, but continuous drain), you should keep the battery charged by performing a power routine. Second if you must I would suggest installing a battery exclusively for the boat's electronics which can be switched in and out as needed, that way your electronics can be powered while the boat's engines are not on and when they are on it can be charging both batteries.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

My nokia E5 keeps showing "Select Enhancement". keeps changing my profile. any ideas??


Possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

I've concted the cradle with the wrong transformer and the unit does not turn on, I may have burn it, please help!!!!!


Ouch, it is highly likely that you have overpowered the gps and it will need some internal repairs. If the item is less than 1 year old Garmin may fix it for you at no charge. If it is over 1 year old you can call them at 1-800-800-1020 .. It would probably be a good idea not to tell them that you may have caused the problem. We would not want you to void your warranty. Sorry for the bad news and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice night.

I zoom, shuts off!


Before you arrange a repair try these steps: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

Did you blow out the drain? If so pull the front off of the air handler unit. Ckean out drain pan. This drain pan had small holes on either side that run from the sode drain clean those out. Also if your coil is dirty it will pull water back and cause it to leak. Try cleaning coil and dain pan plus blow out drain. Rus

I have sharp er-a420 it was in my garage for two years. I like to reprogram my register. I think I need to reset my register, I do not know how. Manager?s key does not do anything. When I plug it in on the...


Most Sharp register, including the ER-A420, have a rechargeable battery mounted inside to hold all memory when the power goes out. It should last a few months, but two years is a bit much. This might get it going:
  1. Unplug from AC POWER.
  2. Turn the key to PGM.
  3. Hold down both paper feed keys (at top-left of keyboard).
  4. While holding those two buttons down, plug the power back in.
  5. Turn the key back to REG.
  6. Enter 1 CASH # to sign on as Cashier 1.
  7. Try a sale.
There is a strong chance this won't do the job, because the memory has been randomized by total loss of power when the battery died. Worse yet, the battery may be too far gone to ever take a solid charge again. If so, you probably need the help of a Sharp register dealer to replace the battery, totally clear all memory and reprogram it. It's probably worth the money; the -420 is an excellent little register.

RCA rt2770 keeps going back to factory settings while in standby


by going back to factory settings do you mean when you program radio stations into memory presets, they're erased when you turn the unit on? if that's whats happening, the problem could be with a battery that may be in the unit. alot of electronic devices have a battery inside that should last for years [or forever] that keeps the memory of everything
stored for when the unit is unplugged.this battery [or the unit itself] maybe defective.if you do talk to rca, ask them if there is a battery.maybe the manual even mentions it. you probably can't change it yourself.
good luck.

Fatal Error Message


I have an older one of these with the AV connections. once in a while it does not see GPS signals. If I exit navigation and from the main menu select setup, I can reset the GPS and then go back into navigation, this seems to cure the issue but it may return. I think the root cause is a low memory battery in the unit.
