SOURCE: the dc40 collar went off

The first thing to try is changing the battery. Fortunately, you have other collars, so you can borrow a battery from one of those before buying a new one. The instructions are provided in a PDF download produced by Garmin.

While you have the collar open, inspect the connections on the circuit board for cracks or breaks, especially the battery charger jack and battery connections. If you see any broken solder connections, have them repaired by an electronic technician.

Note: the electronic circuitry is vulnerable to damage from static electricity discharge. Don't touch any metal on the circuit board; you're in there just to change the battery and look for problems.

Shock Collar Won't Work

Please don't use this device. I used to use these on my poor dogs for training..then I received a shock from the collar myself and it hurt like hell! (I also had undergone a test that used electric current to "test" my muscle reflex..boy, did that hurt..had to make them stop the test and asked "how could you do this to's like a form of torture!! Dawned on me that that's exactly what I was doing to my poor dogs!!)So, please have a little compassion..there are other ways to train your dog. Like positive reinforcement!

Where to I recharge my freon in a 2000 ford escort?

Look for an aluminum tube approximately 1/2 inch in diameter with a stub sticking out
of it with a black cap on it. This is the charge port. Unscrew the cap. There will be an aluminum stub. The recharge can should have a gauge on it, slide the collar back and
push it onto the stub Charge only into the middle of the green zone on the gauge when
the air temp is around 80 degrees and with the engine and A/C running. If all is ok
with refrigerant charge but not cooling then it may be a clogged accumulator or even
malfunctioning radiator fans (it wont cool at stop lights when this happens). Hope this is useful.

I took my astro out for the first time and the handheld was showing the wrong direction and distance to my dog. Also the dc40 is blinking 3 times. Not sure what that means

I've had several Garmin Dog Tracking Collars and always had good luck calling the Garmin Tec Support people for guidance. Their support contact info can be found at the following site:
