TomTom One series 30 won't reset

Have tried holding down the button for 15 seconds. Does not work. Still get the White cross on red dot. Battery is fully charged. Same problem when connected to my Apple Mac. Did download the software via the internet (Safari) but it still won't reset. The unit worked when I first bought it but suddenly when I tried to use it some time later it did not respond. Could the unit have become faulty?

It sounds like you have lost the operating system or the flash memory card has gone bad. Make sure your unit is fully charged and try again. Then connect your device to your computer. If it comes up in my computer right click the drive and check properties to see how much space is availiable on the drive. If it says 0 the flash has gone bad, I have a 20 series tt that this happened to. My solution was to insert a sd card (at least 2 gb.) into the sd card slot found under the sticker no sd card requaired on the bottom of the tt. TT home then installed the operating system but the downside is if you have not made a backup od your tt you will have to buy new maps (not cheap).
Hope this helps

How can I get my Samsung Galaxy Tablet to turn on. The battery is fully charged.


There is usually a method such as holding the on button for a longer period of time. If it is easy to do the other thing that I've found with all sorts of "smart" devices which turn "not-so-smart" is to remove the battery for a minute or so, then put it back in. Many times the unit will turn on as soon as the battery is reinstalled and work correctly again after that. Last ditch effort, unless someone knows about the Galaxy, is a hard reset, there may be a reset button somewhere on the unit, I don't think the Galaxy has a reset button. If the unit still does not turn on it may need servicing.
1. Try the on button for 15 - 20 seconds if you know it is charged
2. Try charging for an hour or two then the 15-20 second hold on button, #1 above.
3. Removed battery (I'd measure the battery voltage while I have it out) wait ~1 - 2 minutes & reinstall the battery. If it doesn't turn on by itself try #1.
4. Nothing works start a service ticket with Samsung, URL:
http://support-us.samsung.com
You might try searching there as well for an answer to see if there's anything I missed.

Leapfrog ipad ultra black screen white dot


During a normal shut down, the screen image on a LeapPad will reduce to a white dot, which will disappear in five to ten seconds.
In rare circumstances, the white dot will not disappear and the LeapPad will not fully power down. If the LeapPad does not complete the shutdown process and the white dot remains on the screen for more than ten seconds, complete the shut down by pressing and holding the power button on the LeapPad for ten seconds. This will fully power the LeapPad down, and it will start up normally next time you power it on. For more information contact essay writing service reviews

It shows a green light at the on and of button but does not go on


Hello

In rare cases, your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device may not start correctly
or may stop responding to your taps.

First, check that the battery is properly charged. To charge the battery, connect

your device to the car charger. It can take up to 2 hours to fully charge the
battery

If this does not solve the problem, you can reset the device. To do this, press

and hold the On/Off button for 15 seconds and release the button when your
device begins to restart.
OK.

My Ipod touch will only turn on when plugged into the wall or the car charger. When connected to the computer the apple logo flashes on and off but will not do anything.


do this...
While connected to a power source, try to reset the iPod touch. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged. if still doesnt power on try this.. Use the following steps to place your device into recovery mode. If the device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
  2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
    • If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
  3. While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB cable to iPhone, the device should power on.
    Note: If you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.ht1808_01.jpg
  4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears you can release the Home button:
    ht1808_03.png
  5. If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the following "recovery mode" alert:
    ht1808_02.jpg
  6. Use iTunes to restore the device.
also maybe your unit have been in contact with liquid You can tell if the headphone-jack Liquid Contact Indicator has been triggered by looking directly down into the headphone jack. Use a lighted magnifying glass or angle the iPhone or iPod so light shines down into the headphone jack. At the base of the headphone jack, you should see what is normally a white or silver-colored dot. The dot will become full or half red or pink when the dot has come in contact with water or a liquid containing water. To view the dock-connector indicator on iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS, use a lighted magnifying glass and hold the device so that you can view the center bottom of the dock-connector housing. A full or partial red dot will appear if the indicator has been triggered.

a feedback would be much appreciated

Seems to charge but then wont come on


Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.

Motorola razor not powering on


is this the first time you are trying to use the phone? if so, (i have this phone so if you have any more problems just ask), hold down the red phone button (the button to put the phone down) for as long as it takes to turnn it on (usually about 10 seconds).

if this isn't the first time you are using it and it has worked before, charge it fully, then take the battery out for 30 seconds and put it back in. if none of this works, take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement.

Battery for Quasar bm-d51


I think it is just a dummy button to help you remember if the battery has been charged or not. select white if you know it has been charged, and red if you know it is run down. dosn't actually do anything to the battery.
