Shuts off soon.

After trying several sets of new batteries (also tested with a meter) it indicates low battery, then shuts down after only 3-5 minutes.

My acer laptop shows a charge {admitadly it seem slow to charge} but when I disconnect the power cable the laptop shuts down immediately, can you help. Thanks


Sounds like your battery is going bad on you. Especially if you charge it and as soon as you unplug it shuts down.If you have a volt-meter you could test it for voltage AND amperage. You may even be able to find a local store that might be willing to test it for you.

Unit shuts down after about one minute.


When you leave a Nuvi on a charger for several hours and don't see full green bars, this is an indication that the battery is defective. Most Nuvi batteries last about 2 years. Most of the batteries have a date code of 2007. I would have the battery replaced as soon as possible as it can bloat and crack the case open. More info can be found here:

Garmin 260 now failing to charge and shuts itself down


If the unit is only a year old? then I would suspect that the charger has a problem that has damaged your battery. Do you use an external power continuously?

Try a different charger or if you have a meter make sure the charger is putting out close to the specs on it. Try using the usb cable to charge it.

The low battery and shutting off are typical of a battery that won't/can't hold a charge. That is typical after 2-3 years plus but not one year. It can also be indicitive of the charging circuit needing to be reset. The problem is it needs to be started and run long enough for it to recognize the reset command. To do this, hold your finger on the bottom right corner of the screen while powering the unit, until it asks if you want to reset it. That might get you running.

While I would be suprised at the battery going out within a year or so it is not unheard of. You may have to replace the internal battery pack. The unit is new enough your only source is probablly going to be Garmin. They might replace the battery under warrenty or out (if you talk nice).

Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.


You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

New Batterys and camera indicates batterys low then shuts off.


Did the batteries come with the camera? If not, they might not be a high enough mah rating. Some batteries, even though brand new, may not be strong enough to power a camera.

Battery Low indicator and Camera shuts Down


What brand of memory card are you using? Sandisc, Toshiba and Panasonic are the only ones that really work with the cameras. If using one of those trying resetting the camera.

Menu
go to setup
go up to reset
press right arrow
highlight reset
press set

If that doesn't work....Send it into repairs and they will send you an estimate on what it would cost to fix it. Give them a call at 800-706-2534 option 2.
