Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Starting Problem

Have you checked the alternator? Check engine light on? Every vehicle is different but if the charge system isnt functioning or wearing out, certain accessories that have a high drain will not function as a warning sign that the charge system is failing. Were their other warning signs that you might have missed? Low power to dash lights or even head lights.... stereo resetting? My guess would be coil pack or alternator

Sony PRST2 BC has frozen.

This screen is an electronic paper screen, meaning that when it displays an image it will stay that way until it receives electric signals that change it.

Basically, even if the device has no power it will display the last image it displayed.

Are you sure the device is certainly charged? Trying to turn it off and on whilst it's plugged in and charging will be sure of this.

I have an ION Tailgater which doesn't seem to be charging. The unit power doesn't have to be on whilst charging, but approximately five seconds after plugging in to charge, the charge light goes out, and...

I just bought four units, 2 of them work fine but the other two have problem, but one of the unit did get charged up even without the charger light on. I switch on the unit, leave it plug in for a few days and the unit come back charged. I try with the other one, but it is not working.

When I turn my camera on, Its show system error? How do I get that off?

You do not mention any problems with the lens so I'll assume it's behaving normally.

There's little that can be done as your camera will be about six years old now and uneconomic to do any but the most basic repair attempts. I've not seen a DMC-LC33 for a while, but I think there's a reset button underneath which can be pressed with an unfolded paperclip. When you try this it's best to have the mode selector dial set to "replay" (green triangle). If there is no rest button then turn the camera on whilst in playback mode and remove the battery. Leave the camera this way for 24 hours and then refit a fully charged battery with the camera still set to replay.

If it seems to work then try setting the dial to a photo-taking mode. If the lens fails to emerge and you still have system error then there's really nothing more you can do.

What's likely to have happened is that the camera has tried to turn on whilst in a bag or a pocket and either the lens was prevented from emerging by an obstruction. The camera was designed to react to this when new by simply abandoning the process and turning off, but as it's got older the sensor may have failed. If the camera tries to extend the lens when it can't something has to give and it's normally a plastic peg in the lens barrel which either breaks, bends or gets dislodged.

As you can replace your 3MP camera with a perfectly good one on online auction sites for under £30 or even get them for free on Yahoo FreeCycle it's completely uneconomic to do anything more. But you can sell your camera for spares or repair and will often get £10 or so.

I hope my answer has helped you and sorry I can't offer you a definitely positive outcome. Please return the favour by rating my answer.

This problem is the relay solanoid on the right firewall in the engine compartment. Relay powers everything in the vehicle excluding the stereo and the starter.
