When a nuvi is connected to external 12v power via USB and then goes into mass storage mode (picture of a nuvi connected to a PC), this could be caused by the following reasons:

  1. The charger is not connected to the correct port. Some devices have a USB port or an additional USB port for and should not be used as a 12v connection:
  • Connection to a PC
  • Traffic Receiver
  1. The 12v cable could be damaged or a third party cable that is not compatible with the Garmin nuvi that it is being used on.
Replacement cable can be obtained via any Garmin Dealer

Emachine won't power on??


from the video the only think i can think of is that some computers have a little red switch that changes from an american standard voltage to european standard make sure that switch is turned to 120v(located in the back of the computer with mouse and keyboard connectors). secondly the other solution if that didn't work the power supply were the plug is connected into for the computer is propably not connected to the motherboard. to do that their is a connector on the power supply that should say P1 that connects to the motherboard. if all that fails have some own or yourself plug something in to the outlet in which you use for your computer to see if the outlet is at fault. If all else fails get a new power supply and have yourself or a computer technician or have a pro technician in PC maintence look at your computer or just buy a new computer.
*hope this was of use to you and sorry for the spelling mistakes*

I have a 93 ford tempo sometimes i turn the key and the power comes on but the check engine light doesnt when this happens the car wont start later i try it light comes on and i here what i think is the...


Sounds like the connection to your ECM (the car's computer) isn't tight. find the ECM and pull connector off (might want to take off your negative battery connection first) and check if all the elec. pins are good(not bent), then reconnect and tighten it.The check engine light comes directly off the computer, so that's why I think you have a bad connection there.

How do you install an amp in new cars when the factory radio is basically an computer and doesn't come out of the dash?


You need to use a Hi Low Converter. They have a different name but I cant think of it right now. Basically it connects to your rear speaker and converts it to RCA connectors that you could connect to your amp. Then connect your amp to power (battery) and Ground to power it up. Last thing to do is connect yours speakers to the amp.

Also get a high Low converter with remote connection.

ya the solder connection connecting the ac power input onto the transformer is probably weak. aside from taking the case apart and resoldering the connection, not much else you can do.

I Think its a loose connection in electric circuit. Due to vibration in the woofer the connection might be going off. Check the power circuit for any loose connections.

Garmin 660 wont operate on power lead


Are you using the Garmin AC adapter or the Garmin car adapter? Using the wrong cable and the Garmin will think that you are trying to connect to a computer. Not all USB cable are alike.

When connected to your computer it thinks that you want to upload or donwload information.

I want fast help..how to get connection between linksys router and aztech modem


To setup your router
first check..
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. If it can go online,
to setup connection..
Step 1:
Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3.
Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 4:
check if you are able to go online wired..
if not your router has to be configured first,
to config your router i need some more information

From 300w psu i change it to 450w will that be ok?


Ivy My field is in home appliances. I do fix my own computers and have replaced a few power supplys. The only thing I could say to you is go back and recheck your connections. They should only fit on the bord one way. The other connections for the hard drive and cd drives and so on really dont matter. so good luck and I think if you recheck it all the computer will work.
