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.

How to remove a forgotten PIN from Garmin Nuvi satnav


Nearly every day there's a question asked by Garmin Nuvi satnav owners as to how to change or remove their PIN which they have forgotten. Ideally you should use a PIN that you will never forget or save it somewhere you can get access to it again if you do forget it. However we all make mistakes and so a lot of users end up on this website looking for a solution.

1.
When you set your PIN you get an option to set a Security Location. When you set this your satnav must have satellite reception. When you forget your PIN you go to your Security Location and the satnav will start up without you having to enter the PIN, provided you have a satellite connection. As you cannot see the signal strength bar until you get past the PIN entry screen you won't know if it has accessed satellites or not so you need to give it a while. Also as GPS is not one hundred percent accurate you may need to move around five to ten metres in a gradually widening circle from the security location. This gives you a better chance of getting the exact spot. If all is well your satnav should open but the PIN is still set. To remove the PIN when you get your satnav started
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models which don't have the SETTINGS icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press GARMIN LOCK ON
  • Press OFF
  • Press OK
Your PIN is now removed. If you want to set a new PIN
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press GARMIN LOCK OFF
  • Press ON
  • Enter your new PIN
  • Press OK
You then get the option to set a new security location. Again be sure you have a satellite connection.

2. If you have forgotten your PIN but either have not set a security location or forget where it is the only option is to return it to Garmin to get it removed. You must send proof of ownership along with the satnav if you're returning it as the PIN is there to protect satnav owners from thieves. If you need to return the satnav to Garmin you can get their contact details at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

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 http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • 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)
  • Pres SETTINGS
  • 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 http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
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

Check that the mute box is not ticked.
1. Press Tools, Settings, Language and then press Voice. Select a new voice.

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 http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 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.
