Garmin shows picture computer

The computer picture shows if the usb cable connects to a computer. If the picture shows when the usb socket is connected to the cigar lighter power supply, it could be that the socket in the Garmin has got damaged. I had a Nuvi 200 like this where the socket had broken away from the circuit board inside, but the repair was difficult, involving micro-soldering!

Will my Garmin Nuvi 40 work with a 24 volt supply ?

If you are using a standard Garmin car charger, you can connect the charger to a DC power source that can provide between +10VDC to +30VDC. The charger produces +5VDC to power the Nuvi. This can be verified on the charger label.
You can NOT connect any voltage higher than +5VDC directly to the Nuvi.

I have one wired connected to the ignition on to main power and it says i need to connect one to car power supply, where do i hook that one up to ???

Are you installing a speaker box and amplifier? Your ignition wire on your speaker box or amplifier should go to the ignition wire on your radio. That turns the system on when the radio is turned on. The main power wire should be ran using 8 gauge or lower wire with a 30 amp fuseable link and connect directly to your battery

Garmin 265WT, connected to 12v car supply, keeps going into mass storage mode then crashing in the middle of giving directions.

This happens a lot with the 2xx series nuvis. Generally the cause is that the mini USB plug on the power cord when it appears to be fully in is not. This is due to wear on the mini USB socket. Push the plug in further and it should solve the problem

The cradle no longer charges the garmin in my vehicle. It's not charging anymore. Nuvi 750

Sometimes, if the Garmin GPS battery is allowed to fully discharge, it would require charging directly via USB cable connected to a PC or Mac before it would accept a charge for the cigarette lighter again. Try connecting this way for 4 - 8 hours or more before going forward.

Check the cigarette lighter plug in another "known good" lighter socket / vehicle to help rule out a defective socket. A socket without power indicates anything from needing to change a "simple to replace" fuse - or a bigger problem - damaged wiring in the vehicle (if the socket is used to light cigars & cigarettes - vacuum the socket out to remove ash and tobacco that may collect inside). Trying the GPS elsewhere helps eliminate possible problems with the socket. If it doesn't work elsewhere, depending on the plug that goes into the socket, it too may have a built-in fuse. Check the plug for an exposed fuse - or see if the tip unscrews to provide access to a fuse inside. If unsure, the tech Support people at Garmin are a great source for free help.

Lastly, dirt or grime on the "cradle to GPS" connection or "cable to cradle" connection could be causing the failed connection. In short - carefully inspect all points of connection and remove any deposits found.

I have just bought my 8th Volvo, I love the car and it drives like a dream as usual but on buying the 2001 S40 I bought a sat nav, not realising charging it would be a problem with no 12 V Socket in the...

Just buy a cigarette lighter socket and install it yourself.
Supply it from the vehicle +12V accessory power; don't forget to also connect 0V (ground) to the socket metal frame.
Accessory power is normaly used on the vehicle to power heater fans, radios etc.

I have an The Biostar U8668D - Version 7.1 Socket 478 microATX Motherboard. And my power supply stop working. I was wondering if i have to get the same one or i can use any kind of power supply.

Most modern power supplies will work they most all have a 24 pin connector for power which you only need 20 but you can still use the power supply either the last 4 connectors split off or you just let them hang off the upper side of connection( all explained in directions with most power supplies) you can mostly upgrade to a higher wattage power supply. so lets say you have a 300 watt one now. you can upgrade to a 500 watt one. just make sure it is of ATX standard.

Im looking for a plug to put in a wall socket and im trying to use an older cobra29 cb radio. Can you help?

Hey AlexJacob

a mobile cb radio like the cobra 29 requires 12V DC, to plug the radio into the wall you need a Power Supply. A small 5 amp power supply will help you. Their is no plug that goes Directly from a Mobile CB rado into a wall. You will need to plug a power supply into the wall, Then take the power chord (red and black with 3 prong [o oo] and connect red to red on the power supply and black to black on the power supply. Unfortunatly a cheap power supply will be $50+ check your local radioshack

Garmin Rino 130 no Power

There first 2 main thing to check..... the off on switch.... and the fuse. Insie the radio there is a very small fuse.... its a surface mount component fuse... very small. That could be the problem. Also check the contacts on the radio..... if you have a way of connecting the correct voltage directly to the radios power terminals using jumpers I would definatly do it. Your most likly going to have to take the raio apart and and connect the battery to trace the power through it. The small fuse will be one of the first components after the positive power input. If this seems too much..... bring it to a radio shop... they can do all this quickly
