    cannot seem to find any satellities on th 660. this happened 01/05 like 2 others same prolbem. started doing this on 01/02 but went away after relocating in the windshield, thought it was dirt on the windshield or positioning but yesterday it just stoped. tried taking the antennea cover off need special tool, but couldn't get into the main case. don't advise this unless you have some documetion on the device. pain in the but to get back together. Device was a year old past christmas,been rained on and droped from moving bike twice but worked flawlesy for the next 4 to 5 months.

    I had this problem with 2 separate units. Garmin replaced the 660 each time. I don't know of any fix.

    Powered the Nuvi off and then on again. Same thing happens

  • furface Feb 29, 2008

    2/20/2008 have same problem, just quit working with the same questions. Tried external antenna, works fine. So, it must be a poor design of the antenna cable from the antenna thru the flipup antenna's hinge. Similar to some laptops where screen dies.....

  • Anonymous Feb 29, 2008

    Very similar symptoms. Lost signal mid trip, after 3 months, cant get sat reception. Ask questions and searches for hours. Haven't tried the external ant. will try tomorrow.

  • EnnEss Mar 11, 2008

    It happened right close to New York city. Lost signal and could not get it for many hours. Afer a days rest it worked for a few hours and then again the same problem. Turning off and on does not help.

How do I fix a Sony TV that starts then screen goes blank


Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

When I am using Dragon Premium Ver 12 to dictate and I use quotes, single quotes or apostrophe, Word puts them in red and a tracking bar comes up at the side of the text, but tracking is not actually


Peter-
Look at the top of your screen. You should see the Dragon command bar. Click on "mode" and select "dictation". Talk in a normal tone and pace and use commands such as "open quotes" and "close quotes". This should help with your issues.

How replace trunk lid torsion bar 2005 malibu


There are two rods, one has rubber on it. I just replaced the one with rubber on it. Looking at the one rod that was still in place, you can see it mirrors the rod you are going to replace, the placement is just opposite the one that is in there. The rod has a left end that is a square "C" shape, and the right end has a "V" bend right before the end. First position the rod above the seat release cables (if you have them) then position the "V" end near the inside right top of the trunk. Then slide the left "C" end into one of the three slots (I used the bottom slot). Leave it loose so it can rotate with just the tip in the slot. Slide the rod to the right so the "V" is above the spring clip (don't clip it in yet). The right side and the left side of the "V" has to fit into the tabs underneath and inside the top of the trunk. Compare to the left side to see how it fits. Once in place, you can then lower the "V" down to the clip and snap it over the bottom tip of the "V". These steps are easier if the trunk is propped not fully open. I had someone lower the trunk part way while I lay on my back inside the trunk, and I used a small open end wrench to bend the rod slightly to get it to fit into the tabs. The final step is to position the left side of the rod so the torque will hold the lid open. I used a small open end wrench, placed it over the tip in the slot and rotated CW upward until straight part of the rod slid over the hook to hold it in place. This last step had me concerned that I could bend or break the rod, but I went slowly and carefully and was quite happy when it snapped into place and held the lid open.

Hi, Just opened a new 1490LMT. Can't get a satelite signal. Small red bar appears on left top corner. Also, I'm in Winnipeg and can't get the GPS to acknowledge Winnipeg. Toronto is on screen.


Hello,

When travelling with your GPS it may take 20-30 minutes for it to acquire a satellite signal. For it to acquire the signal it should be stationary so when visiting the family or in the hotel leave it on you should get satellite lock.

Hope this helps!

Address bar,forward back button,tools etc gone


You lost your navigation tool bar. Not to worry. open the firefox. Click view (3 rd button on the second line at the top). Then Click on toolbars. On the pop out that opens on the side, click on the Navigation tool bar, and you will see a tick mark appear on the left hand side. You will now have your address bar, forward, back etc.as earlier.

T30 always comes up with record-ready display screen


T30 defaults to an opening display screen based on where you were when you last used the device. When leaving from the record folder and record mode, you will always open with the record-ready screen. If you left your T30 while in the music folder playing a music file, you will be returned to that.

This record-ready display screen has a numeric and bar time line. The numeric values of the line are in hrs:min:seconds. This line is also split: the right half of the line indicates the total amount of available recording time, while the left half indicates your time as you record. If you compare the values of the right and left sides of the numeric bar while you are recording, you will see that the right side is diminishing as the left side increases in numeric value. When you complete your recording and save your track, the right side will now indicate the new total time (the amount your screen first displayed LESS the time value of the track just recorded).

When you are playing a music file, if you watch the time display, you will see the numeric information changing in the same way. The left side indicates how may hrs:min:seconds your track has played while the right side indicates the total time value for that file and will be correspondingly decreasing while you play your music file.

So in the short, you don't need to worry much about your display screen unless you open in the wrong folder or you need more recording time than is available. Then it has a message for you.

Red bar across top of screen??


I had the same horizontal, solid red bar along the top of the tv screen. I have an older analog Philips Magnavox TP2785C221. It just started all of a sudden. It was on every channel. However, the bar did not appear on the other input channels (e.g., AV1, AV2). So this meant that the red bar was only occurring on the antenna input. I unplugged my cable decoder box and restarted it. The red bar went away and that seemed to solve the problem for now.
