My Lynx 455 does not always open right away. I move the antenna and it works for a little while. The three screws that hold the receiver are tight. The problem seems to be the antenna.

OK, In general for the 5315 series, the memory replacement should be roughly the same.
You seem to have an idea what you're doing, so here's a little specifics:

Here's what you see once you get the giant "thermal door" cover off. To remove the cover, first, remove the four screws. Now carefully slip a thin tool like a table knife under the edge of the cover where the indent is and work around towards the front and back of the laptop.
DON'T pry along the side towards the side of the laptop or you'll break those longer tabs. That's the edge which goes in first when you replace the cover.

The RAM pops out easily by spreading the clips on either side.

I have had the same problem to remove the motor you need to remove the two screws at the back of the motor next the two screws holding on the circuit board (so you can get at the screws around the gearbox ) next remove the cover on the gearbox by removing the four screws and lift off after you have done this you can lift the motor out but remember you still have the wires connected but you can get at the screws to tighten the head down try using lock-tight on the screws

SOURCE: hello does my lynx 455 plus sensors have lights

Not familiar with lynx but every sensor I have seen or heard of has a light. It is the only way to tell when they are pointed correctly at one another.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Lynx 455

Check the sensors in the doorway. Sounds like they may be misaligned. They need to be pointing at one another to work properly.

I am having trouble linking my Lynx 455 to my Tesla Model S Homelink. Is there a compatibility issue? Does the remote continue to send a signal with the button pressed?

The Model S uses a homelink system for the garage opener, and according to their compability list, the Lynx is not there. So Homelink does not guarantee the functionality of it. If you don't get it to work while following the correct procedures from Tesla, I recommend you get the universal receiver kit from Note that there is a difference in transmitter frequency between US and EU universal kits, so make sure you get the correct one. good luck!

Just bought a new 455 Rancher, within 15 minutes of use the chain fell off the guide. Could not put this chain on guide again. Tried brand new chain and within 15 minutes of use, chain came off of guide...

if you loosen the nuts holding the bar on there is a tension screw on the opposite side from where the nuts are you should see it if you look from the front of the saw by the muffler you need to use it to put the proper tension on the chain if you turn it clock wise it should move the bar out tightning the chain you want a tiny bit of slack in the chain it should not be dogged down tight with the tension screw if you go counterclock wiseit should release tension. once tight tighten screws to hold on bar and spin chain by hand should be able to spin chain if not it is to tight. hope this helps

Screen won't turn on

Your ribbon cable is out of the connector when it was dropped. Open your garmin becarefull!!!! and read first the information below!!!! Flip up your antenna, at the very top you will see two screws, (These are T-5 Torx) remove them. Next be very careful when you open the top cover! The ribbon cable for the antenna comes through the bottom corner (I think it is on the right looking at the unit.) Next focus on the left bottom corner, there is a black barrel that holds the antenna to the unit and also provides the clicking steps you get when positioning the antenna. There should be a **** for a screw driver inboard about 3MM Put your screw driver there and pull to the right. Now you can lift the antenna box free. (NOT THE ENTIRE UNIT, THE RIBBON CABLE IS STILL ATTACHED.) Now at the top of the unit you will see two more T-5's under the antenna pivot area. You should be able to pry the unit open once these are removed. Still you must be careful the touch panel, speaker cable, power cable and one more cable is still attached. That one more cable you will see right away, it is red and black and you can remove it and fold the two halves over with the others still attached. After removing the final three which are all ribbon cables. Also don't forget the antenna calbe which once removed can be pulled through the half of the unit it is attached to. After seperating the halves you have the touch screen removed. You have one more phillips screw which removes the "motherboard so to speak." Hope this helps you peace. Put the ribbon cable back in the connector there is a black "lock" what proberly hold the ribbon on it's place. Lift the black lock and put the ribbon cable in the connector the same for the small one next to it.

How do you remove the antenna safely

I don't think there any screws under there, the case looks more like a snap together case.
I doubt that ik locks up because of the touch screen, maybe some erronous POI's caused the problem, try this (i found on the net)

When you're at the main screen, hold your finger on the time in the upper right corner for more than 5 seconds, and you'll get to an info screen, and back/next buttons lower right of screen.
There's some sound diagnostics, and screen tests, and lots of info pages - including one with some battery status/statistics. To get out of the diagnostic mode, power cycle your unit...and when you do this, it will take some time to lock on to satellites.

How do you open a nuvi 660

The ribbon cables are clameped in place. The look like they would slide out from the connector if you pulled then hard enough,... you do NOT want to do that. The black portion of the connector is actually a hinged clamp. With the unit lying on a table, face up as it you were using it; lift the top screen half away for the bottom half and tilt it toward yourself. You should see the ribbon cable and the red & blk wires. For the wide center connector and the one on the right, the black piece hinges up an away from you (towards the top). Try the one on the right first. When you flip it up, the ribbon will pretty much fall out. Pry the wide center one on the ends, NOT in the center. The narrow one on the left tilts donw towrds you. For the antenna, the hinged peice is brown, and it flips up towards the right. This one does not just fall out. It needs some gentle wiggeling. Also, I was able to use a T6 torx, T5 seemed a little loose,... yo don't want to strip any screws or you'll be screwed. SpaceVector

Garmin Quest GPS problem


I got the exact same problem and I solved it. The problem was a bad contact between the flipping antenna and the unit.
On the back of the unit, removed the two screws on the right side, beside the flipping antenna.
Take care there is a spring that can fly away.
Remove the part that was holded by the screws.
Removed the flipping antenna (pull on right slowly).
On the antenna connector on the unit, there is a ring. That ring was loose.
Tight it.
Put every thing back.

It solve the problem on my Quest 2.
