    Have the Roadmate 700 about 3 years. For the last 3 months, the unit will just power off while in motion. Most times it will not come back on unless I pull the cord from the cigarette light and put it back in. Sometimes that doesn't even get the unit on. Sometimes it powers on by itself and just turns off again. The green light on the cord remains on even when the unit goes off so I assume the lighter in my car is fine. Get this. I called Magellan. The customer service rep (in India) told me to tape or use a rubber band the cord tighter to the base unit that it sits in as a solution. Should I replace the cord or the unit?

    my power flickers on and off but then stays off

    similar problem, my Roadmap 700 is about two year old. After it is on about two minutes the it goes off, screen is off. After few minutes, it can be turned on again, then off after couple minutes. Power from either house plug or car plug has the same problem. So the problem is not at the power but within the roadmap.

All these problem will arise when the cradle becomes faulty.
Cradle will be at the backside of the unit.Where you plug the unit .When that particular cradle becomes faulty means the unit will turns off automaticly...So to over come this problem just replace the cradle the problem will be resolved .......

I reversed polarity on my jumper cables and blew the main fuse on my 2010 main fuse...what do I need to do?

Prius2 is not powering up after one person swapped ower polarityof battery while changing it. We changed Big fuse at the front of the car and couple of small fuses. Now when pressing power button we have engine light and power button orange light fore just one sec. After it just stays dead. While pressing power button you can hear couple relays clicking for a sec and dc to dc giving hi frequency noise for the same amount of time. Help us please. This prius was manufactured in 2003. Many Thanks

I have a whirlpool fridge/freezer which after a power cut will now only register 7 on the freezer, although still seems quite cold. How can I get it back to -18 ? Thanks

If the power loss was for 5 mins of less.... just unplug it for 20 mins and plug it back in. The compressor is probably "High side cycling" and the thermal overload is tripping on the compressor every 4 - 5 minutes for about 40 seconds. Unplugging it 20 minutes will allow the coolant system to stabilize and the compressor to re-start.

GE A730 camera cuts off

Hi doctech:
Turn on the camera, then go to the menu and set the time to shut off to 5 or 10 min. These settings are usually set to 2 min. or less. This setting is to let the camera "go to sleep" or simply shut down to save battery power.

You can also try the following:
Go to the set up menu, find the RESET ALL and reset all the settings to factory.
Then go back to the setup menu and set the setting as you want them making sure to set the shut off time to more than 2 min.

Over heated hover
Posted by blade123 on May 29, 2008
Hi there, I’ve got a upright Hoover and it cuts out after about 5 mins I think it’s over heated but if i leave it for 5 mins it works again but cuts of again how can i fix it?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is possible that you my have a heat sensor, but as far as what you described you need to change both belts, the brushroll belt and the power drive belt as well and @ the same time. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months on the vacuum. Does it stop completely or is it just the belt problem. Or #2 is the vacuum giving off a burning smell other than the belts and if it does it could be the motor. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Sony KV32s22

Hi: Sounds like it might be an overheating part, and the short is shutting of the set. Or it could be an intermittent connection in the pc board. Either case it would have to be repaired by a expert.

Tv cuts off and on.

Sounds like a bad SSB(small signal board) module. Better take it to a RCA AUTHORIZED service center.
