I can think of two things. 1) if you did not use a grounding bracelet and the correct tools etc to remove it and did not keep it in an antistatic bag, static electricity from your body or someone else's etc or debris such as hair may have come into contact with it and 'killed' it meaning you have to get another one. 2) if there is a cable coming from the unit where it is to be placed on the motherboard, make sure this cable is properly inserted into a dock nearby which should be labeled CPU FAN or CPU FAN2. Computers with these will not operate unless the wire is inserted into the correct port. it's a failsafe device to stop the CPU from overloading from the heat. hope i helped. couldn't really understand some of your Q but i tried. Thanks

Water pump and ignitor do not work

took coleman away for weekend wouldn't work. Very dissapointed, was cold would have loved a hot shower. Had charged battery, when I went to start it. It wouldn't go, light come up as battery low tried it on car charger still no luck. Got home and looked up this site told me to try taking filter off pump and putting a long nail inside to turn pump to make sure it wasn't seized. And guess what every thing works well thank god, water temp was dodgy as well but now all good. Thanks to people that do reply to these sites, it has saved me a lot of money and frustration.

On one of our two parent receivers, it's showing 1 red light with 4 green lights above it. No sound at all. The other parent receiver works just fine, perfectly clear. I think my toddler was playing...

I had the same thing happen to one of my parent units over the weekend. The issue is that the parent unit lost the pairing with the nursery unit. Once I re-paired them, it's working great again. This is in the Troubleshooting part of the manual, but I've copied below for your convenience.
If Parent Unit won't lock onto the Nursery Unit, or you purchased a new Nursery Unit, follow the procedure below to pair the Parent Unit and Nursery Unit. If you purchased a new Parent Unit, skip Step 1. The new Parent Unit is ready to pair with your Nursery Unit.
1. Erase the Pairing from the Parent Unit. Turn the Parent Unit off. Hold the Volume Down Button on the Parent Unit while pressing the On/Off Button. Continue to hold the Volume Down Button until you hear a single beep and all of the Sound Lights illuminate briefly. Release the Volume Down Button. Press and hold the Volume Down Button again. Within 2 seconds you will hear a beep. Release the Volume Down Button. All of the SoundLights and the red Loss Connection LED will be lit. The Parent Unit is ready to pair with Nursery Unit. 2. Pair the Parent Unit with Nursery. Place Nursery Unit in the same room, five (5) feet (1.5 meters) away from the Parent Unit. Turn on Nursery Unit using the On/Off Button on the side. The green power light should come on. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will find the Nursery Unit. The SoundLights will shut off and the Parent Unit will beep. The Parent Unit is now paired with Nursery Unit. 3. Repeat this procedure if you need to pair another Parent Unit with the Nursery Unit.
Nothing happened when I turned on the Nursery Unit. What do I do? First try turning the Nursery Unit off, and then on again. If the Parent Unit still does not pair with the Nursery Unit, press the Channel Button on the Nursery Unit, then turn the Nursery Unit off, and then on again.
Hope this helps.

My parents bought the same tv, TV ran fine for 2 years then started giving them problems. Blue light comes on then few seconds later turns to yellow. Turn tv off then back on it worked, until last week it would not turn on.

Took it to a repair shop they said it was a bad power supply and it will cost 50$ for this check up, as it turns out the total bill would be $650 minus the original $50 it would only cost you $600.

Needles to say i took the tv home with me. Since they were not going to use it i started looking at it took the back off, removed all heat shiels ect. Took my magnifing glass out and started looking at the power supply come to find out the part was made in China, it was missing a solder joint, pulled my old soldering gun out, five minutes later the tv came back to life.

i hope this helps.

E Machine CPU

I have seen systems where when they get an unexpected shutdown such as a power failure, then the power supply will not supply full power when you try and start back up. I would suggest that you turn off the power switch to the power supply (if you have one), what a few seconds and power it back on.

No power to unit, but powers on okay in house with AC power adapter

Not sure if you'll see this post, as you asked the question back in Nov, but I
thought I'd tell you what I know anyway.

I and my parents bought the same exact unit within a week of each other.
There's works, and mine does not.

I took their cradle, and hooked it to my GPS, and it came on, no problem.
I took my cradle, and hooked it to theirs, and boom, nothing.

So, with that, I was able to isolate that the problem is definitely in the cradle.

I went to the manufacturer website, registered my Magellan Roadmate 700,
and then I was able to contact customer support. I am writing to you as
I wait for their reply. Here's their website.

Hope this helps!
