Loss of signal

Well its like this,after turning it on it will work for maybe 15 mins and then it will freeze up or have me hundreds of miles away from where i am or sometime it has me going 180 mphs! It seems to get hot so i guess its the HD, i have taken it apart and the antenna seems fine and this will happen with my external antenna also..thanks

I have the same problem(and others too)
After it freezes, I have to turn it off and turned on again. Sometimes it works. I think, that these problems can be fixed only in repair shops (Dealers) only, prohabs that's the whole idea...
I paid over $1,000.00 when it came out. I wouldn't pay for it $200.00 if I would know.....
There are units on market today, that cost less than $200.00 and do better jod than Magelan 700!

Good luck! drj.

Honda metropolitan 05 Met II blowing 15 amp fuse

Did the scooter start OK when you first started it after bringing it out of storage, or did you have to use the kick starter? Maybe the battery is faulty and is pulling a lot of power.
Check the charge rate with an ammeter (use a multimeter that can measure 20 Amps DC) and see if the current exceeds the 15A rating of the fuse. If it does, replace the battery.

I have cobra 25 ltd and i,m picking up signals from hundreds of miles away can i tune it down to pick up more locally

Try turning down the RF gain. It is the 2nd knob to the left of the channel selector. This will limit skip stations and receive only local higher signal stations to come through. Do not turn it too low or you won't hear much of anything. Hope it helps.

My 2001 vw passat's a/c runs great for 15 mins at first start up of the car. After that - no cold air but the blower still blows. So if I dont have any further to go than 15 mins. Away im okay. What could...

Maybe there is a restriction where the r134a refrigerant flows. Or, the refrigerant is low on charge and shuts the compressor off due to this.

Good luck to you.

RCA DTA800B1 converter box - Works great for 15 min. then quits.

I would suggest to return it because it should work as intended without dropping the signal.
It would be a good idea to add a signal booster to keep a good signal strength.

first i would guess to be convergance ic then IC831S (STR-X6456).and could be loose connection.
you could try this to narrow it down, purchase a can of freeze at radio shock and spray it on these ic one at a time see if it stays on longer or just replace them
