I had the same problem and fixed it by pressing the reset button behind the front bezel. To remove the bezel use your thumbnail in the small slot on the silver bezel just under the Garmin logo to carefully pry it off. The reset switch is on the the right hand side.

Hello, You might check the fuse - it is located in the end of the charger cable. The round end that plugs into your lighter unscrews and you will find a fuse in there. Also try plugging it into a USB port on your computer while it is running to see if that USB cable will charge it. If that does not work I would call tech support for the Unit and see if you can get it fixed or repaired under warranty. Good Luck - Dr. Know

While running in a screw to install a new electrical outlet cover, the outlet made a small pop and the lights flickered but immediately came back on. I plugged in the unit to see if it worked and nothing...


You say the unit is 220 volt, but the plug you installed has a white wire which is normally on a 120 volt outlet. A 220 volt outlet would have 2 black wires and ground. If you do have 220 there, and the reset does no good, I've seen those resets(they are basically built in GFI) blow out and had to bypass/put different chord on. there are fuses on the control board but I would check that last

I have a Garmin GPS 72 MARINE NAVIGATOR I HAVE A CIG LEAD EXTENSION TO ENABLE UNIT TO BE PLUGGED INTO 12V POWER I HAD THE UNIT ON BATTERY POWER THEN PLUGGED IT INTO CIG SOCKET THE SCREEN WENT ALL GREY...


If you can try first changing the battery of the unit to check if everything will be working fine, because there's a possibility that the battery went bad or worse the unit has some problem with it , if after changing the battery still have the same problem better have it replace and take the new unit Off Shore for your own good.

Hope that helps..........

I am having a problem with my 12 volt power outlets. Ever since I used an iPod FM transmitter in both of my outlets, neither outlet works for any accessory that I plug in. The fuse was blown, I replaced...


I think you need to look inside of the sockets for foreign objects such as change or foil from gum wrappers. This is the most common cause of this problem. If it is all clear we need to unplug both and put in a new fuse, plug in one and then the other, see which one is the bad socket.

Error code 0xc18a0201


Hi.

The code means Ink System Failure. First disconnect power cord to reset the printer and test using different cartridges.

If that does not work try the procedure below:

"Press and hold the "left arrow" key.

Press the "Setup" key and release both keys.

Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo"
Press and release the "OK" button

1. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu".
2. Press and release the "OK" button.
3. Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status",
4. Press and release the "OK" button.
5. Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear".
6. Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".
7. Press and release the "CANCEL" button as many times as necessary, so that, either the "Welcome to Photosmart Express" screen appears, or, the "Ink System Failure" screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
8. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
9. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
10. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK.
11. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

12. To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use.


NOTE: If the error is still there, or reoccurs replace the unit."

ENGINE RUNS BUT NO POWER TO OUTLETS


When you flash the field, are you going + 12 volts to the top or right side brush? Negative to the other brush? Try three times for 2 seconds?

1996 Cavalier 12 Volt power outlet in car doesn't work right?


Even thought the plug in is 12 volt. It's ouput is different. Most electronics have different ranges from 3-9 volts.
Does the 12 volt charger put out 12 volts? If so, it would burn up the electronics' capacitors on their power supplies.
How is the car's electronics doing? Are they too failing? If so, that would be a faulty voltage regulator, if not, I would hook up anything you use to the radio wires.
You cannot plug in anything directly to battery no matter what the person told you. Batteries charge, than release charge, a contiuous cycle. The power output is speratic and anything hooked straight up to the battery will need a fuse.

Black screen and whistles


Sorry to say that it sounds like the high voltage went out on that one. The sound that you hear is probably the high voltage arcing across the flyback transformer. Dont try to make any repairs here. The unit has at least 25,000 volts in there. Even long after it has been unplugged. I'm not sure what size TV that is from the description, but you would be looking at replacing the main deflection board, which may well exceed the value of it.

Power supply suddenly 'dead'


You check the power supply using multimeter. but before everything make sure the you are getting power from the power outlet.

Here is how you can check the power supply with multimeter

If the wall outlet and the power cord are good, make sure the connection at the motherboard is secure. Then you may have to face the fact that the power supply itself is bad. If you have a multimeter, you can test the power supply output before purchasing a new one. Simply follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the PC, but do not unplug it. Open the system unit. Set the multimeter to read DC volts in the next range higher than 12 volts. Locate a power connector similar to the hard drive (or CD-ROM drive connector that is unused) and turn on the PC.
  2. You can also unplug a drive connector and use it. Turn on the PC and insert the BLACK probe into the power connector on one of the BLACK wires. Touch the RED probe to the YELLOW wire on the power connector.
  3. The multimeter reading should be +12 volts. Now touch the RED probe to the RED wire and the reading should be +5 volts. If no readings or different readings occurred, you’ll have to replace the power supply. If the readings were correct, you should check the P8 or P9 connectors at the motherboard. These connectors may also be named P4 and P5. To check these connectors, perform the following:
    • Insert the BLACK probe into P8 at one of the BLACK wires. Insert the RED probe into the P8 connector at the RED wire. The reading on the multimeter should be +5 volts.
    • Check the power going to the motherboard connections by inserting the RED probe into P8 at the YELLOW wire and you should get +12 volts. Leave the BLACK wire touching the BLACK wire at the P8 connector. Check the BLUE wire and the reading should be a -12 volts.
    • Now move the BLACK probe to the BLACK wire on the P9 connector. Test the WHITE wire by inserting the RED probe and the reading should be -5 volts. Check the RED wires on the P9 connector and you should get +5 volts on each red wire. You won’t get exactly 5 or 12 volts, but the readings will be very close, such as 5.02 volts.
    • If the Power Supply is a couple of volts off in either direction, such as when the RED wire should be reading -5 volts but it reads -8 volts, or if there are no readings, replace the power supply.

Question: Why won't my unit charge while plugged into my vehicle?
From the Garmin site: --> Answer: If your unit will not charge in your vehicle, you may need to replace the fuse located in the tip of the vehicle power adapter.
  1. Unscrew and remove the silver or black, round end piece. fileservlet?date=1&kb={6b85cfa0-194d-11dc-44cd-000000000000}&id={6e53bea0-6874-11dd-436f-000000000000}&ext=jpg
  2. Remove the fuse (glass and sliver cylinder) and replace with a new fuse.
  3. Ensure that the silver tip is placed in the end piece. Screw on the end piece.
