Two possible solutions. One is that you buy a cradle in which you put the gps unit on it or just buy a new one. Usually if the pin is broken, it needs repair.

Lighter plug seems burnt out


Even if the fuse shows no signs of being blown (one such sign might be a black spot), you might want to try a different fuse of the same amperage to make sure.
If the fuse is good, you have more work to do. Check whether power is getting to the outlet by testing it with a voltmeter or circuit tester. If the voltmeter shows power is reaching the outlet, the outlet itself is probably damaged from repeated use or simple misuse. Though chargers and other plug-ins are supposed to be of uniform size, some may be bigger or smaller than others.
time to get a new outlet then.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525, I purchased a new battery and a new charger and I still getting the message that it's plugged in but not charging. What could be the problem?


Your problem is that the power jack in your actual laptop is loose. it may not seem like it is but one of the 3 connections (positive, negitive, data) that hold the jack to the board broke. In this case its the data connection that tells the laptop what kind of adapter is plugged in, and dell laptops wont charge without knowing that. Solution- 1.Pay someone to replace the power jack 2. If you can solder, by a new jack (around $5) and disassemble the laptop and replace it yourself.

Dropped my magellan gps. broke the little spot where it plugs in how do i get it fixed


Hi lacroixc2006

this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Charger out 2nd time, under joy stick has plugin 3 pron. Can I use a off board charger. Batteries and charger changed june 09 Fuse not blown Power cord not shorted Breaker not triped.


Yes, you can use an off board charger and plug it into the joystick 3 prong plug receptacle. Do not plug in the AC cord for the on-board charger at the same time. That is, do not use both chargers at the same time.
Using an off board charger is a better permanent solution. The on-board 4 Amp chargers have always been problematic and are a little hard to get at to change. The off board chargers either 5 Amp or 8 Amp have better cooling, more reliability, easier to plug in, and easier to swap out when they fail. Off board chargers are more expensive so there is a trade off.
If your U-1 batteries are about 1 1/2 years old they are due to be changed. Hope this helps.

When I plug the battery in for charging, the charge light does not come on. only the power light on the charger


There are several solutions to this problem which I have seen twice in my technical career.
You indicated that the power light on the charger comes on which indicates it is plugged into a working AC wall outlet. Check to make sure the power switch of the charger is turned on. Make sure that the round charger plug is plugged all the way into the battery charger receptacle on the battery box.
Next, check the on-board fuse AND the circuit breaker. I have had this little 5 Amp automotive style fuse burn out on several go go's and the charger does not work. Pull back the cover over the charger port and look for the fuse in its center slot. With a good set of fingernails it can be pulled straight out and inspected. Use fine needle nose pliers if necessary. I am assuming the go go runs and the push-button for the 15 Amp circuit breaker is pushed in. If it is out and the go go is not running reset the breaker by pushing the white button in. There is a clear rubber boot over the button. In my experience, the 5 amp auto fuse is your most likely problem. By holding it up to the light you can see if the fuse wire inside is burnt causing an open circuit. Most auto and hardware stores have this fuse in stock. Bring the old one to the store for comparison. It is a 5 Amp ATO fuse.
The question my clients often ask is what caused the charger circuit to overheat and the fuse to blow? The simple answer is that the two 12 Amp hour batteries in the go go are probably old and weak. This causes the charger to work too hard and the circuit to overheat and the fuse to blow. These small batteries have a short life span of between 6 months and 1 year depending on type. I recommend the AGM (advanced glass mat) batteries for longevity. Also make sure the charger being used on the chair is the 2 Amp small charger that came with the chair (There is a label on the charger to verify this). A larger charger will burn the batteries(shortening their life) and burn out the 5 Amp on-board fuse. Hope this helps.

The Instrument panel lights no longer work. When I started it at night it was fine for a minute. When I plugged in my cell phone charger in the AUX lighter spot, there was a noise and the instrument panel...


Sounds to me like your cell charger is shorted so the fuse that sends power to the lighter socket blew and the dash lights are on the same circuit. Check all the fuses to make sure the tiny piece of wire between the two contacts is still intact and replace any bad ones with the SAME SIZE and AMP RATING fuse. Then, hope for the best and throw away the cell phone charger if all is well in the car.

Loose stitching underneath. HOW CAN I FIX!!!!


Sounds as though you may have a burr or rough spot on the hook where the bobbin inserts. Run your finger along the edge of the hook to see if there are any rough spots.I'm sure you're going to find at least one from the time you broke the needle.Once you locate it, remove it with an emery stick or small sharpening stone. Polish it so that it is smooth. Should work okay.

Power adapter


Hi, You can get the power adapter pin replaced at an Electronic store. Radio Shack has it but it must be special ordered, have you tested the power cord? I think that you might be right about the power socket cause thats what most common problem of the ones that I repair.
