Question about Garmin StreetPilot i3 GPS Receiver

Only works on batteries

I confess to having dropped it. It still works, but only on batteries, which it gobbles up.

Any ideas?

The power cable has disconnected internally. This is the one that takes power from the lighter adapter. Take it to a competent independent repair / service place and ask them if they can re-connect the cable.

If you, you'll have to send it back to Garmin for repair.

USB cables have a very FORMAL design accepted by everyone. so any USB cable that fits SHOULD work. Although I confess i have no idea what you might plug the other end into, or what it might communicate to the binoculars, so you would be better off researching that first.

Remote control won't work

Hi, There are two things I do with remote controls. First I put new batteries into it. And I check under a bright light to make sure they are oriented properly. Just so you know, I confess to having done the same. I, of course, hope that is all that is wrong with the remote, because otherwise it is not economical to service.
Hope this helps,
Have a Happy New Year,

Hello, i am electronically challenged. when i press the power button on my camera it comes on for like a second then this little red light flashes a couple times and it shuts off. what is wrong with it?...

The battery is going dead.
Like many digital cameras, this one gobbles up batteries.
Always have a few extras ready to insert.
In an emergency, you can drop your almost-dead batteries in fairly hot water, dry them off thoroughly, and get a couple of bonus shots out of them.

Battery location

Hi! I must confess as to not having a lot of experience with your Model however have you carefully tried taking the side panels just below the seat to reveal battery? one side maybe air filter other side should be battery and tool kit?
Hope this sorts it? Press blue FixYa button to show me please.
Merry Christmas!

Dell Latitude C610 Issues


My compliments for having done all that. Not that many users would be inclined to go so far.

In any case on to your concern. Having been in storage for some time, it would be normal for the battery (and the memory battery) to have drained out. Initial powering of the unit from the storage would entail the battery gobbling up all the juices that the adapter can put out. What I would suggest is simply let it charge for a considerable length of time, say overnight.

You can try running the PC without the main battery. it it works normally then you have just verified that the main battery was consuming at least initially so much power that the charger/adapter has none left to power the laptop.

If even without the battery and the unit still fails to powerup, then next course of action would be to check for the section/area where the power drops off. This could include the connector/jack where the adapter plug comes in, the regulator connectors and/or the regulator circuit

At times, this could also be due to some corrosion or dirt in the jack and or connectors. it is also possible that the battery might have leaked "a bit" and has affected the board or the contacts/connectors.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa..

Lens scrunched

Yea, I'm guessing this is not a do it yourself'r kinda project. As for taking camera stuff apart it requires tiny screw drivers. Sometimes small pointy pen/pocket knife blades work. But you're more than likely going to strip the heads out. Over the eons, I have taken some cameras apart, but confess that I've never put them back together again.

My slider broke off :(

hi Jenna, i appreciate your spirit for confessing a silly mistake. Generally no one confess, any way you have to change the slider. Dont get tense, just go to sony shop. As you said, you purchased the camera from America, but the question is if it covers international warranty, if so ,dont worry go to any sony shop anywhere in UK. They will sure help you. But I suppose breakage will not be include in warranty. So take a chance... good luck....
