I was Just wondering if you have both the red and the yellow power wires there may even be another power wire that runs the robotics on that unit. Just checking you probably did that though. Make sure there is none of that see threw rapping stuck in the door too. Ok I hope you get it going.

Samsung brightside will not turn on.


If the phone lights up when you plug in the charger it is probably the ribbon cable that flexes every time you open the keyboard. About 25 bucks from cellphonerepairshop.com. Be sure to flip up the little latches on the flex cable ends before attempting to plug or unplug the cable ends.

Will not stay on when not plugged into the car outlet?


first make sure that the device is indicating that the battery is being charged or that the battery is fully charged. this is indicated on the menu screen by the battery icon as being 4 bars of full green color.
if the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
if the fuse isn't blown and the unit still wont charge you may have received a usb cable with your Garmin Nuvi. If you didnt recieve one any mini usb cable should do. On this model you can connect the Nuvi to a computer using a usb cable. And see if you can charge your unit through this method. *Note* that the computer must be on for the unit to be able to be charged.
If you can charge your Nuvi unit on the computer then you may have something wrong with your cars adapter. I doubt this is the problem however if the unit is able to be turned on.
If you cannot charge the unit via a car adapter (with working fuse) or a USB cable. The most likely problem is the battery is no longer accepting a charge. On the listed unit a Garmin Nuvi 265 the battery is not user replaceable. So you would have to contact Garmin to get the battery changed or see if there is a local battery store that is able to change a battery on this model unit.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

My flip face sony cd player wont do anything, but still plays, sounds tooo high help


A common problem with flip face headunits is the flexible cable that connects the face to the main unit develops a hairline fracture through the cable after a while and disconnects 1 or more conductors. this can have the effect you are experiencing. try gently pressing on the cable and see if any functions return

I want an instruction manual for the Chattanooga Deluxe Exerciser


Caution: The internal unit has grease, gears and cables so be careful.

To change the batteries, the blue 'read out' display plate lifts off and on the underside is the battery receiver. Facing the blue display, I simply inserted my fingernails under the top of the face plate and pulled. It lifted off fairly easily but does offer some resistance. I'm sure a flat bladed tool such as a screw driver would also work.

Note: There should be a cable/wire going from the internal mechanism to the plate. If it is not connected to the face plate, you will not get a readout. Use caution when reaching inside the unit and do not turn the pedals. Look inside the unit for a loose black cable/wire with a white stripe. On the end of that wire is a single prong plug that inserts into the backside of the display plate. My plug's receiver had threads so it may be that some cables/wires will have a screw-on type connection.

My instruction manual (leaflet) did not show how to change batteries or hook up the interior cable/wire. I could ot find the product or related instructions on the companies website but here is the information:

If the device does not power on it could be a result of a extremely low battery. Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu.
If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on. Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer
  2. Some of the older Nuvi 200 series will have a reset button on the bottom of the device. It can be found on the bottom of the device on the same sticker that the serial number is printed on.

It take a day to charge the 260 WITH the correct cable for your computer as it will only trickle charge it.
Car charge does it in 2 - 3 hrs. If car is not charging it check the fuse in the end of the charger

  1. Use the provided vehicle power cable that came with your GPS unit. The unit will charge while powered on and using the device as well as when the GPS unit is powered off and plugged into a running vehicle.
  2. Use an AC power adaptor. Some units come with this power cable to plug the GPS unit into a wall outlet allowing the GPS unit to take a charge. For units that do not come with this cable, one can be purchased from Garmin's online store.
  3. For most units, the final way of charging the battery is to plug the GPS into a powered on computer with a USB cable2. This method of charging will be a trickle charge and it may take longer than the other two options, however it will still charge the battery. A USB cable is provided with a few GPS models. For those that don't come with this cable, one can either be ordered from the online store or you can use a standard USB to mini-USB cable that fits the unit and plugs into your computer.
1 - Please note that temperature can play an effect on the charging of a device. If the battery registers a temperature of 0°C and below or 45°C and above (32°F and 113°F

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

Display totally gone.


I'm not sure if your unit is a flip face, but if it is then the first thing I would suspect would be the ribbon cable that connects the flip face to the main circuit board. Hope this helps.
