    The instant you press the button on the console, the motor should start. When it starts a mechanism in the motor operates a switch mounted on the motor (provided w/new motor). That makes a circuit which replaces the action of your finger holding the button by creating a bypass circuit. This bypass circuit takes the start switch completely out of the circuit and keeps the motor running. Your motor is not making this bypass circuit. Model Number is needed for further info. Open door and look on case where door was.

Garmin GPS update dies as soon as it starts.

You may want to Contact Garmin for assistance. 1-800-800-1020.
Here are some things you can try in the meantime to see if you can bring your unit back to life. First hold in the power button for a minute or two. This may cause the unit to reboot (it works on some of the older units). Next is to see if it will communicate with the PC. Download "Webupdater" from Garmin's website and run it with your unit attached to the PC. If the PC can talk to the unit it will send the latest firmware to it. If this does not work you will have to wait for the Battery to die so it resets.

Just got it. Plugged in and connected wires to 12v battery. Held light/power button 5 secs. Wont start

First, just press and release the power button, you don't have to hold it in.
second, is your battery fully charged?
third, red wire to positive terminal, black wire to negative.
These are obvious things to check, but sometimes the simplest answer is the solution.
Did you install the fuse holder included with the unit? If so dI'd you put in the 3 amp fuse?
If none of these things work, call lowrance. I work in retail and have experienced taking brand new units out of the box and upon hooking them to power discover they were dead. Defective straight from the factory.
Good luck.

I have a Kocaso M736 and I can't remember my password to get it started again.

Cant. Have to factory restore it. This is done by holding home button, power button and volume up button at the same time while device is off. Operate with volume keys and power button for select. Back up everything on

Computer won't power on

One of 2 things come to mind. Either the power supply if fried or your button is busted. You can check the buttom by opening you units case and removing the front panel. Be careful removing as to not bust the tabs that hold it in place.
Now the start button could be busted either of 2 parts, the front panel or the actual button wired to the unit. Check to see that the nub from the panel is busted or not. If not then your problem may very well be the button wired to the unit.
I don't know the innards to your unit but the button may just sit in place with plastic nubs or screwed in.Make sure you have a back up Button ready before removing as to remember where it wires to exactly.
Most experts will tell the average user not to turn on a unit without placing all panels back in place but that's hog wash if you ask me. Do make sure all wires are snug though. I don't replace the cover until I know it works. (unless it is the panel button. Don't attempt to unplug or plug-in any wires while the unit is on.
I have shorted units by doing doing so but then I was distracted and didn't realize at the moment. Anyway if switching the button for a new one does not work, your power supply is then most likely no good. Unplug make sure to get same exact size with same hook ups sometimes best go with the same model brand etc. Remember the wire placing.
Removing the power supply can sometimes be a little tricky. To start there should be 4 screw on the outside back. Inside may or may not have any screws. Power supplies can run some money cheapest I have seen Is about $60 or so new. A start button should only be a few $. May check with repair shops to see if they have a usable used one.

Brand new dishwasher wont run

Because it doesn't have legs??? Seriously, I need a little more information. Make/model, new unit or replacement? I presume you installed it because an installer can't leave until it works. Is this dishwasher replacing an old one or a new install? Is the electrical tied in correctly? Is the water hooked up and running? Info, info, info!

Try performing a soft reset of the nuvi 1310 by holding the power button for at least 10 seconds until the unit powers up.

A hard reset can also be done.
To perform a hard reset :
Note: A hard reset will erase all waypoints or Favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your Favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so here.

• Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
• Press and hold the lower right corner of the screen
• Continue pressing and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
• Release the power button when the device powers ON
• You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
• Touch Yes

Also, be sure that the nuvi 1310 has the latest software update by installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater program.
Load or reload the latest software update as this will usually resolve most issues.

I have the same problem; it keeps saying HOLD on screen! Help

Try resetting the unit.

Push the
HOLD button in the direction of the arrow.

Press and hold
down both the User button and the Power button for several seconds and then attempt to power the U3 back on.

If resetting the unit won't help, the player would require service. Call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Have your model number and serial number on hand to set up service.

I recently bought a used whistler pro 73. The unit looks to be like new but after a week of use I havent received any alerts. How do I test this unit to see if it is defective?

Perform a factory reset (hold the power and quiet buttons in, while hold in these buttons plug in the power cord. Unit should beep twice) and see if this corrects it. If not contact Whistler at 800-531-0004.
