SOURCE: The camera won't turn on. But in its dock I can

Yeah one would assume battery in this unit is not working like it should and may need replacment, or your flash capacitor inside is not filling with charge to power unit off the dock. Ether way here your going to need to have this fixed.

You need to find a camera shop local or send it back to casio for repairs ether way.

Thanks and I hope this does help you today, please be considerate and leave a positve feedback statment and ratings for your free soluton today.

How to update my satnav on my new Suzuki swift?

Most manufactures will refer you to the maker of your system (even when the lying salesman told you it would be free). There should be info in your owner's manual about the nav system. The update will cost you plenty.

I purchased 3 nuvi 780 models about a year ago. One for me and one each for my children. Not long after we started using them the sound quit on 2 of them. Neither the FM or internal speaker will work on...

The most common cause of this problem is that the voice files become corrupted and need to be replaced. To replace them:
  • Download and install WEBUPDATER to your computer from
  • Connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead and run the WEBUPDATER program.
    Webupdater will find any updates to your software that are available. Select all and install them to your satnav. When the update is complete it will then find optional updates including VOICES. Select a few of the English speaking voices and they will be downloaded to your satnav. After the download is completed SAFELY disconnect your satnav from your computer and restart it.
  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
    This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • Press VOICE and select one of the English speaking voices you downloaded.
I hope this solves your problem.

All of a sudden my Garmin Nuvi 850 won't say street names, just turn left or right

It may have switched voices. Some of the voices are basic and do not say the street names.
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon in the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press LANGUAGE
  • Press VOICE and select an English speaking voice that ends with the letters TTS (TTS stands for text to speech)
If you don't have one on your satnav you can download them. Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from
Connect your satnav to your computer and run the WEBUPDATER program
It will search for updates and you should install any it finds. Afterwards it will find optional updates including voices. Tick the ones you want and download them to your satnav. When you have disconnected your satnav from your computer you'll need to select a voice as described in the first paragraph above

How do you download latest maps for free as i have been told it is possible ? Thanks...

It's only free to download the latest maps if a new map comes out within 60 days of your satnav first accessing satellites or if you have a satnav that comes with lifetime maps. However you can buy lifetime maps. The lifetime map of Europe costs €85 and you get updates every 4 months or so for the lifetime of the satnav.

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi(r) 1310(T) from Halfords in Manchester and was advised to get a "free" update after registering my unit, as it could be 1-2 years old. On checking there were no "free"...

If a new map becomes available within 60 days of the satnav first receiving a satellite signal you get it free. If you only got the satnav there may not be an update at the moment. While the satnav may have been a while in the shop Halfords keep the maps up to date. Even if there was not a free update available myMaps in myGarmin should show if there's an update which could be paid for available. If it says no update available you probably have the latest version. A new map normally comes out in November though the dates vary. Keep a check by logging into myGarmin and checking on myMaps. When the new map becomes available it should show up there. It will let you know if it's free or not.

If you want to check what year the map on your satnav is:
Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS (or LOCALE if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon)
Press MAPS
Press MAP INFO at the bottom of the map page

This will show what map you have and the year of the map. If your map is the latest version it would explain why there's no updates

1390t stopped saying street names and only says distance before turn

Some voices on the satnav don't support street names. It's likely that the voice which used to has become unselected or corrupted.
1. Press Tools, then Settings, then Language and you will see a setting for Voice. Press Voice and change to a different one. If there's not another voice there or the other voice file is corrupted you can download more.
2. Connect your satnav to your computer. Download and install webupdater from and your satnav will look for updates. When it has finished it will give you an option to download voices. Tick the ones you want and click next. When they have been downloaded to your satnav and you have disconnected your satnav from your computer select a new voice as described in paragraph 1 above.
