Question about Navman F20 GPS Receiver
The internal power connector has become loose and does not recharge the internal battery, I opened the unit and glued the connector back...''I tried soldering but it would not have it'' anyway I switched it on and got no power up at all, when I put it on charge there was no battery indicator on screen to indicate it was charging, I presume the hot shoe plate cable connector inside the unit has nothing to do with it, or do you think I should try and get it re-connected again? I have voided the warranty as I have opened it up myself...only having just getting it fixed because the same damn thing happened...any idea's anyone?
External power adapter? if you broke open the gps receiver and used any glue make sure you didnt coat the silver looking tiny metal parts or you just insulated them from the power adapter.. scrape off the glue gently with a small flat screwdriver. double check your wires to it the center conductor is usually white or red but the outer is ground or copper braid or black wire also check and make sure you didnt solder splash short the connector. gently tug on both wires if they bust loose you need to resolder proper 60-40 rosin core. adapter problems is easy . get a meter and check for voltage out from it should be like 14 if rated 12v. also you can just plug it up and trace to point where the voltage is lost to battery. good luck
