SOURCE: year old explorist 100 doesn't work anymore

Even though your sister has lost the receipt, many stores have the ability to look up purchases at the store provided she used a credit card. You can not do this over the phone. You will need to have your sister go to the store and ask them to look up her purchase with her credit card. If it is a recent purchase and still within the product warranty you may be able to get a replacement. Good luck.

SOURCE: blank screen

Same problem that the older IFiner (Lowrance) had, it is an internal problem with the GPS, needs to go in for repairs, BUT first see if it is cheaper to just purchase another GPS

SOURCE: Unit has stopped working. Have tried charging in

Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Try a hard reset .Turn the GPS on then locate the little pin hole on the side, using a paper clip, push reset. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.
If that does not work try to update your GPS from the bellow link:-

If the problem still persists you need to contact the customer support for the unit replacement
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

My HP Pavilion dv9740us Notebook PC dosent start the screen is black


Doesn't start as in nothing happens when you hit the power button? Or are you saying the Desktop is black, but it seems like windows started and went through the boot process?

If nothing happens when you hit the power button:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

We have a APC Smart UPS 2200XL. We had a power failure last night and now all six lights in the front (AVR Trim, On Line, AVR boost, Overload, On Battery, and replace battery) are flashing at the same...


Hello,

The light pattern indicates the batteries need to be replaced. The typical life of UPS batteries is 2.5 years, after this time the cells will not hold the proper charge. When your power when off last night the UPS would have tried to switch to battery power but it most likely failed after just a few minutes as the batteries shorted. The UPS has a protection circuit that prevents it from starting up properly with dead batteries so you get the flashing lights and the unit shuts off. The batteries are available in most cities from car battery dealers, not like Wal-mart but battery only dealers, just look in the yellow pages for batteries. You can take the old batteries out of the unit by removing the front panel and unscrewing the metal plate just behind the front cover. The old batteries are connected with a wiring harness that plugs in. Just bring the old batteries to the dealer so they can get you the correct replacement part. The new ones should be less than $100 so it is well worth the price compared to a new unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

My GPS won't stay on


I can solve this by not solving it. First I tried reset the unit to default settings: hold down the power, page, and enter buttons at the same time, a message, "do you really wan to reset..." will appear. Select "yes." If the unit reboots, hurrah. If not, call tech support (1.800.800.1020). Get an RMA, send it back to them for repair. I had purchased mine over 30 days ago but less than 60: Amazon wouldn't replace it, Garmin will either replace or repair. If you want them to send a new unit while the old is in transit, just ask; they will charge and then credit a card once they have the old unit is in hand. Good luck.

Just get in your vech , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition Key and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consitant pace. (97 and earlyer are fast) When you see the hazzard lights flash, put key in ignition switch and turn to the On postion .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On postion .. Hit the Lock button on remote... Hazzard lights should flash..( note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don't your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn igntion switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vech with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazzard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master lock switch unlock doors and relock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try. Good Luck :)s.gif

5550 not powering on


was the battery a exact replacement to the one you removed?

also do you have the power adaptor for it put the old battery back in and see if it will run off the adaptor with the old battery plugged in and then you know the issue is with the new battery and not the unit itself.

Remote does not work


Do the buttons on the front panel of the unit work?

If so, try doing this:

Hit the tivo button, go down to messages and setup and into to system information. Go down a few screens until you see remote code. Hold (on your remote) the tivo button and pause button for about 5 seconds. Then hit 0-9 on your remote to set the code. It's a single digit code only. You'll see your remote light flash. Now, try hitting the back button and see if your remote works. If it does, great. If it doesn't that means one or more of the following:

1) Your remote is defective
2) Your IR receiver on the unit isn't working correctly.

If #2 is the problem, you'll need to open up the unit, powered down! and make sure the thin, greyish ribbon cable in the front of the motherboard is 100% in. If it's not all the way in, it will cause issues.
