SOURCE: having problem registering and activating

Hi,

I have seen Few Issue's with this. You could only try Few Tricks, if that would work.Turn OFF Anti-Virus and Firewall as it could stop you Registering on that Site. Reinstall the Software and then try to Register.

If unable, try to Register on a Different Machine. If still problem remains the same, contact Technical Support - Skycaddie to register your Complaint. It could be a Server Down issue or Web Site Security issue which they need to check from there side.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: My Skycaddie SG5 keeps

Hello,

when the Skycaddie SG5 shuts of on its on, does it turn in immediately you power it back on?

The problem is either a software problem or hardware problem.

Hardware; The battery maybe loosing contact with the battery terminal. Also, the might be a partial contact inside the unit. So you might want to disassemble the unit and check if there is no loose wires and make sure the battery is firmly attached the unit and does not fail.

Software; try uploading the newest CaddieSynch software for it. In fact, uninstall your current version and install the newest for the SG5. Then, reload any updates it prompts you for.

Try software method, if that doesn't work, then you can disassemble the unit.

Keep me posted.

Good luck.

New battery and still not holding charge


Not sure what kind of battery you are using in your GPS. If you can put in AA or AAA size batteries, try to use NiMH rechargeable batteries the can be bought with capacities till 2500 mA/h. (sometimes suggested 2700 on the battery) but still 2500 mA/h is very much. Do charge the batteries with a charger that is capable to charge correct. When putting a NiMH battery on an old charger for NiCd batteries, the battery never get the full capacity.
If the Battery is inside and you must go to a repair shop for replacement, please ask if they can check if the GPS is not draining to much power, because of any malfunction.

My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

My sky caddie sg5 wont charge


If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced

To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
  1. Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
  2. Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.


Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.

Sky Caddie SG5 will NOT turn on


Hi David
I know this is some time after you posted your question. I had the same problem with mine and was ready to throw it in the bin.
Searced the net and someone had posted that they bumped into a Skygolf rep who suggested lifting the charging flap and blowing into the hole.
I thought he's having a laugh, but guess what it worked.
Good luck if you've not already fixed it.

Installed new battery and still shows low battery after 2 holes and 24 hours of charging


if all cables on battery are clean and tight, then most likely it is the alternator putting out a low charge. test the alternator it should be at least 14 or a little more when running. 12.5 to 13 when off. if alternator is ok, then check all wiring from alternator to battery, and make sure the battery ground is ok!! best of luck carl,
