How do I pair a RocketScience Tracer bluetooth?


    • 1How to Pair a Bluetooth Device With an iPhone On the iPhone, click on the "Settings" icon. It looks like a gear. Then press on the "General" button. Select "Bluetooth" and then "Turn Bluetooth On." The phone is now ready to be connected to the Bluetooth device.
    • 2 Connect the iPhone Bluetooth travel cable that comes with the iPhone-approved Bluetooth device into the USB 2.0 port on the computer. Do not plug it into the USB port on the keyboard.
    • 3 Connect the iPhone to the other end of the cable. The cable goes into the data connection slot on the bottom of the iPhone. There is another slot on the top of the cable into which the Bluetooth device should be plugged in.
    • 4 Wait while the computer loads to recognize there is something plugged into it. Either a screen will pop up or an icon will appear on the desktop to let you know that the computer is recognizing there is a iPhone plugged into it.
    • 5 Let the Bluetooth device charge with the iPhone for about one hour. You can tell when the device is fully charged by viewing the status light on the device. It will be an amber color until it charges completely. Once the charge completes, it will turn green.
    • 6 Remove the Bluetooth device and the iPhone from the cable that is plugged into the computer's USB port. Push the button on the top of the Bluetooth device. This allows the calls to now go through the Bluetooth device instead of straight to the iPhone.

QUESTION; CAN MY XL GPS BE CHARGED BY PLUGGING IN TO THE COMPUTER?


Yes, you can plug your GPS device into your USB port to charge it. Your computer (if running) will assume you are connecting the GPS device to your computer, and It will start up the program for your GPS device... e.g. to update the map, backup the data, etc. You can proceed to do all that, or ignore those programs. While it is plugged into the USB port on your computer, it will charge your GPS battery. You may wish to "disconnect" the GPS device (properly), but still leave it connected ... to continue charging it.
Another way to charge the GPS device is to get a wall plug USB adapter. This way, you can charge the GPS battery without having to go through the complexity of what the computer does when you plug the USB cable into it.

I have my Garmin Nuvi 750 connected to my computer to charge. How can I tell when it is charged? The screen shows the word Garmin with an up arrow and a picture of a computer connected to the Garmin.


When it is plugged into the computer you cannot see if it is charged. You would have to unplug it from your computer after a few hours to let it charge, have it start up and then check the number of batter bars on the top right corner of your screen

I have just purchased a sendai universal home charger, when I plug it is my Garmin 200, and the other end into the electrical socket I get a picture on the screen, looks like a computer with a plug running...


The nuvi thinks you've connected it to the USB port of your home computer. It's charging, so pay no attention to the screen.

If you HAD connected it to the USB port, you would also see the nuvi as a storage device attached to your computer. That's how you can download pictures that you can display on your nuvi. It's also the mechanism used when you update your maps and/or software.

Not sure if player is charging


QUESTION ONE:
Can you see it in "My Computer"? It will show under "Removable Drive/Storage"

QUESTION TWO:
Double click the removable drive to open the folders. Can you see your music, photo and movie folders?

QUESTION THREE:
Can you see the player in Coby Manager - under the "DEVICE" tab?

QUESTION FOUR:
When disconnected from the computer, how long can you listen to the Coby player before it goes off?

If not present in My Computer or in Coby Manager/Device Tab, then it is not plugged in correctly.
a. Disconnect the player from the computer.
b. Wait for it to cycle through "Please Wait" and "Updating Library" screens.
c. Make sure the player is TURNED OFF
d. With player TURNED OFF, reconnect wire to the player then to the computer.
e. You will see a USB connector icon on the player screen and the player charging.

It will appear to be charging all the while it is connected to the computer.
After it has been plugged into the computer for an hour, it should be well charged unless the battery is completely run down. In that case, you need to do an initial 8 hour charge - with the coby player OFF - through the computer. (This one got me when I first got my player!)

f. Use the Coby Manager to disconnect the player (Found HERE CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

1. Open Coby Manager
2. Go to the DEVICE TAB
3. CLICK on EJECT Button in lower right hand corner.
4. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
5. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system."
6. Disconnect the player from the computer.
7. The Coby will now show "Please Wait..."
8. It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the "Please Wait" screen and then on the "UPDATE the Library" screen - Be PATIENT

You should now have enough battery power to use it. To check the battery level,

1. Turn on the player
2. The battery icon is in the upper right hand corner of the screen - it is ALWAYS RED until it starts to go down... I've not had mine down very far, but believe the red line gets shorter as the battery is wearing down.

Hope this helps.

I have a 30g Zune which has not been holding a charge for a couple of weeks. This morning the Zune powers up and then shuts off (even while plugged in). I tried the 'hold down the back button and up at the...


Hi,

I am not sure if this is gonna work but, since you've tried all other steps why dont we give this a try too...LOL :-)

To troubleshoot this issue, try one or more of the following methods in the order in which they are listed:
  1. Let your Zune device charge for 30 minutes, then disconnect and reconnect the cable to turn on the player. It can take up to 3 hours to fully charge.
  2. Connect the Zune device to a different USB port on the computer. Use a USB port on the back of the computer. Do not use a USB hub.
  3. Use another supported high power source, such as an Xbox 360 console, a Zune AC Adapter, a Zune Car Charger, or a Zune FM Transmitter/Charger.

    Note These devices are sold separately.
  4. If you are connecting your Zune device to a mobile computer, make sure that the mobile computer is plugged in and is not running on battery power. Many mobile computers are configured to conserve power when they are running on battery power to extend battery life. This behavior may affect Zune device charging.
  5. If the Zune device is charging slowly, be aware that, for optimal charging, the Zune device requires at least 500 milliamps (mA) of power. Frequently, USB ports that are located on the front of a computer and on some USB hubs are low-power, 100-mA ports. Typically, the high-power, 500-mA USB ports are on the back of the computer. Additionally, when you suspend the computer or put the computer to sleep, high-power USB ports may be switched to low-power, 100 mA mode.
  6. If the device boots to the home screen but is still not charging correctly, continue with the "Home screen is displayed" steps in the following section.

    If the device continues to display the full-screen charging icon, continue with "Full-screen charging icon is displayed."
  7. If the battery in the device still does not charge correctly, visit the following Web site to sign in and register your device: http://service.zune.net (http://service.zune.net)

    At this Web site, you can submit a request for service if your device qualifies for service.

Sometimes my Iphone will not charge when i connect it to the wall charger. I just bought my iphone a couple of months ago.


If your iPhone is not charging when you plug it into a wall charger or into you computer's usb port, this is a usb connectivity issue and the connection just needs to be reset. All that needs to be done is plug the iPhone's cable into the phone but don't plug into the computer yet. Hold the phone's select button (the round button with the square) down for about 30 seconds or until the apple appears on the screen. your phone will reload and reset the connection and the computer should recognize the device. Allow the phone to charge for at least 30 minutes before unplugging.

Maestro 3250 Charging


I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
