    I also have a 330 with a dead battery. Somewhere I heard about a reset button.. Is that an option for me to do. Or is there anyone else that will change the battery for less than the 250 that garmin wants?

Gently peeling back the silver face plate will reveal a "reset" button, not making any promises as it sounds like you may need a new battery but its defiantly worth a try. You can remove the battery and google it's part number, this will find you third party replacements and even original units for less that Garmin charge.

Canon ZR90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder no power even when plugged in charger no red light tryed 2 batterys


Batteries may need to be recharged or replaced if the error persists after battery recharge or replacement the unit may require a service evaluation. If the batteries currently in the device and it is not working properly, remove the batteries and wait for 30 seconds and re-insert the batteries. In doing so if your camera has a back-up or date and time battery, remove this battery as well. Removal of the back-up battery will cause a full reset of the camera and will clear any settings, including date and time.

Two brand new Hitachi BSL1815X Lithium Batteries won't recharge (UC18YGSL charger and DS 18DSAL drill)


These batteries have big problems that Hitachi doesn't address very well. Unlike NiCad batteries, Lith-Ion ones must be periodically used and recharged to retain their battery functions, i.e. if they have been sitting on the shelf at a store for an extended period of time, chances are they will be dead when bought and will not accept a charge. If they go dead i.e. no little red light on the charger when you plug the battery unit in...it's basically junk.

If you can return them or exercise the warranty do so. If / when you get new ones DO NOT completely discharge them like you would NiCads. Lith-Ion batteries do not have the "battery memory" issues that NiCads have which means you don't lose running time if you don't fully discharge the battery unit prior to recharge. Completely discharging before recharge will ultimately kill them. Use the 1815X till almost dead and then charge it. It is also recommended Lith-Ion batteries not be stored fully charged i.e. charge the 1815X fully, drive a couple bolts or screws, remove the battery unit and then put it away. Do not leave battery unit plugged into the tool when you put the tool away. This will discharge and kill the battery unit.

There are non-Hitachi substitute batteries now on the market. I'm guessing the same precautions apply but I don't own one of the replacements so I don't truly know.

The actual batteries in the Hitachi BSL 1815X are Sanyo UR18650SAX lithium ion batteries. Lithium Ion cells aren't all that easy to get commercially because of handling & safety requirements. Not certain if you can take apart the 1815X and swap out the bad Sanyo cells.

Can I replace the rechargeable internal battery in my Garmin Pilot 550c unit?


The battery can be replaced. You'll need to take the unit apart and look at the ratings and physical dimensions of the battery. There will be a part number on the battery but it will be specific to the manufacturer of the battery. The rating numbers you are interested in are the mAH and voltage. You'll want to find a battery that has the same voltage and at least the same mAH rating or higher. The higher the mAH rating, the longer the battery will last between recharges. Make sure the new battery will fit inside your GPS. There will probably be a plug on the old battery that was in your unit. The new battery may only have wires. You can splice the old plug on the new battery, just make sure you get the polarity correct.

Good luck!

Battery will not take charge from wall unit


Remove the battery for several minutes, replace the battery and plug the wall socket in, leave it for several hours. The battery is probably too dead to do anything, and recharges very slowly. If this doesn't work, try a replacement battery, before you send the unit in for repairs.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

Power is not turnin On


Plug the unit into the cigarette plug or usb on the PC. If after it's plugged up and it comes on then the battery is dead. If the still unit won't come on, take the gray face plate off the front of the unit and hit the reset button and it should come on then.
