Big blue flash! I would say one or more of the filter capacitors just blew up! time for a new power supply. the AC goes into the unit and a surge suppressor is across the line - looks like an orange colored disk - from there it goes to a step down transformer to a multiple output secondary. on the secondary there are numerous "bridge rectifier" circuits that take the AC and change it to usable
dc. That DC is filtered with large capacitance capacitors. I have a site if I can still find it that has large wattage power supplies. I'll find it and get back to you.

Battery is too low to turn the engine over. Get it jumped and drive it to AutoZone. They will run a free diagnostic and tell you whether it's the battery or the alternator.

I have a 4GB Craig MP4 player and earlier today it was working perfectly fine. It turned off automatically and later I went to turn it back on to listen to it and it won't turn on or charge when connected...


Quite often there is a fault with USB charging. Do two things to confirm its not totally broken. First try another USB charger. Second and better- charge from a power outlet at home.

this problem is not unusual ,without seeing the car as i have no product knowledge with american built cars as such,but if it has one coil and not a coil pack then its the ignition module ,these often go just as you describe .Stop car to pop in shop and then no go,this is not the dealers fault they just pack up ,ask dealer nicely and no doubt they will send someone around to put a new one in for you .
