How long have you had this battery for this device? Is it the same battery you have had in the device since date of purchase? Since I don't know the answer to these questions, if the battery is over 12 months old, you need a replacement, quite possibly, even if it is indicating a full battery. The other side of the coin is if it is NOT the battery, it could unfortunately something has gone wrong internally and you may need to send the device in for repair. Try leaving the device's wall charger plugged in and then power the device on and select start to see if the device will then automatically shut off. If it still shuts off, there is an internal problem with the device. If it does not shut off while the charger is plugged in, but shuts off when the charger is NOT plugged in, sounds like a battery issue.

SOURCE: sky caddie will not sync

plug in your connection cable to the back of the skycaddie with the cord going down towards the battery, not up. This should fix the USB recognition issue.

SOURCE: my sky caddie sg5 won't

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.

Buttons won't work. Just returned from a 6 day golf trip where the SkyCaddie SG4 worked perfectly for the first 5 days. I recharged it in a wll outlet overnight, then on the next day the buttons...


Power On/Off and Key Lock/Unlock - Press the Power button located at the top right
of the Sky Caddie to power on/off or to lock/unlock the keypad. Upon pressing
the Power button you are prompted to choose either "Off" (Left Soft Key) to power
off the device or "Lock" (Right Soft Key) to lock the keypad. To unlock the keypad,
select 'Unlock" by pressing the Right Soft Key, then choose "Yes".

SG4 will not sync. display has UPDATE PROGRAM


Ran into this problem last night. Was trying to update software on Skycaddie. According to computer, everything finished. However, my skycaddie was displaying UPDATE PROGRAM VER 00.13 (B) Ready to Begin. Tried to reload last application as stated in earlier post. PC could not fine skycaddie.

Gave up and called customer service this morning. Only took a few minutes to get a live rep on the phone. He e-mailed me a link to execute that allowed him access to my computer. He tried to reload the last application as well, same result. He then ran an update program via a website, program found my skycaddie and was successfully updated. Whole process took less than five minutes.

I was fearing having to send my unit in for repair.
