SOURCE: CANON POWERSHOT A530 LOW BATTERY READING

We had the same problem and it was so very frustrating. We sent the Camera back for assesment and repair only to be told there was nothing wrong with it. The solution was so simple we felt like real dummies.

All you have to do is use Energizer Lithium Batteries, since we started using them we have not had a problem with Batteries going flat or that annoying Battery indicator flashing.

Regards
John

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

That means that you have to replace the battery.

SOURCE: Why should my GPS indicate a low battery even

It sounds like the unit is not being charged when it is plugged into the car. Does it come on when you plug it in, or do you have to press the power button? If you have to press the button, the charger is not sending power to the unit. Make sure it is connecting properly to the unit and that it is seated in the AC outlet correctly. If it is, check the fuse in the end to see if it has blown. If so, replace it. If that is not the problem, you may have a problem with the AC outlet in the car.

Garmin nuvi says low battery and it is plugged into the car


The Garmin will tell you 'Low Battery' if its alternative power source is not available for some reason, so the battery is not being charged. Depending how the Garmin has been programmed, the display on some models will become slightly brighter when a power supply, other than its own batteries, is detected. Check for this.
It is likely that the lead you use to plug into the car is not supplying voltage to your Garmin set. If it plugs into a cigarette holder, check that the cigarette lighter works, or plug in another device to see if there is any electricity to the receptacle. Obviously ensure that the ignition switch is on. If the plug-in bit of the power cable has a light on it, check the light is illuminated. if you have a sensitive tongue, you should be able to put the end of the lead that plugs into the Garmin onto your tongue and you will feel a very slight tingle on your tongue if power is getting to the end of the lead. If not, then there is probably a break in the lead inside the plastic insulation or a problem with the supply plug.
If the plug in lead proves serviceable then you should change the batteries in Garmin as one or more may have failed and will not charge. Check for this by leaving the unit on after unplugging the external supply lead. Depending on the Garmin you have, the unit should remain functioning for at least 30 minutes. The internal batteries will degrade rapidly if the unit has not been use for some time and the batteries were not fully charged before you put it to bed.

Garmin nuvi 2595 will not take a charge


I found my brand new nuvi 2595lmt repeatedly power cycling and loosing its charge when I tried to charge it (for the second time as well). I was using a different USB cable. When I switched to the supplied cable with the "Garmin" insignia on it, the problem resolved. Hope that helps, good luck.

Today i turned on my garmin after a few months, it was working will for about 2 min, then it lost satellites, so I turned it off, then tried to turn it back on, but it never turned back on. the battery...


If the GPS's internal battery is allowed to discharge too far, it will not be possible to recharge with the card charger, until it is brought up to a certain level. Connect the nuvi to a computer with USB cable overnight. This will trickle charge the internal battery to a level that will allow the car charger / cradle to keep the GPS charged from that point on. Anytime the car charger fails to recharge the internal battery, the USB charge method will have to be performed first.

My Garmin will not start up.


it sounds like your battery within the GPS Unit is died. You need to charge it somehow. Keep it connected to the car charger for around 30 mins and unit should turn on. Do not keep it on while it is being charged

3) Plug in the power cable.
4) Click "Exit." The nuvi will reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
