My player shuts off automatically after about 13 minutes. The battery indicator flashes like the battery is dead almost immediately after I turn it on even when I just charged it. I checked the battery voltage after it did this and it was still the same as freshly charged (7.6V). I can repeatedly turn the player back on and it turns off again after about 13 minutes every time. It seems there is something wrong with the battery power sensor. Please help. This is very annoying.

Shutting off immediately would be an indicator that the battery is not charged or bad. Using the USB connection, connect to a suitable device such as a PC and allow a few minutes to charge. Turn unit on and see if conditions remains. It should be able to run even with a bad dead battery with supplied power from the USB. If you are successful allow the battery to charge. If after charging and removing the USB connector the GPS fails to remain on you may have to use a USB adapter in the 12 VDC receptacle in the car to operate.
The flashing green indicator is telling you (and the notebook) that the battery is almost fully charged, but then by switching immediately to flashing orange, the status has changed to "battery charge is low". This is not normal behaviour and probably indicates a serious issue with the battery. My guess is that the charging is initiating some kind of rapid battery self-discharge. Ref - Knowledge Base
Notebooks will power up and work without a battery just fine. Ref - Laptop Battery Basics dummies Try to operate yours this way. This will eliminate the battery from the loop as a potential cause of the BSODs you are seeing.
"Battery being charged" indicates that this is a laptop. Auto shutting down indicates that you are having issues with the power supply/brick. One thing to try is another known good power brick. Otherwise it is likely your power inverter inside the laptop.
When you leave a Nuvi on a charger for several hours and don't see full green bars, this is an indication that the battery is defective. Most Nuvi batteries last about 2 years. Most of the batteries have a date code of 2007. I would have the battery replaced as soon as possible as it can bloat and crack the case open. More info can be found here:
No and no, the flash is by default programed to shut off after 1 minute .If you were using the flash on-camera, the flash
would automatically power itself on when camera activity is detected but
when the flash is detached, it doesn't wake back up. To change this you have to turn off the auto shut off in the flash menu: 1. Power the flash on 2. Hold down the back light /C.Fn button until "Fn 00
0" appears on the screen 3. Rotate the selector wheel until you see
"Fn 01 0" 4. Press your selector button down so that the 0 begins
flashing 5. Rotate your selector wheel to change the 0 to a 1
6. Rotate the selector to the "Fn 14 0" position and set it to 1 7. Press your selector button to save this parameter
8. Press your Mode button to return to the main screen Now your flash stays on as long as the flash switch is turned on ON, and as long as you have juice in the batteries.
Do not forget to turn off the flash after you are done.You can reverse it anytime, but you have to read the manual for that..
Hi, it must be the battery..While charging is pilot lamp lighning ? To verify,just plug the USB cable to see if device battery charging circuit is working.. If it does,either your battery is dead or its charger needs to be changed. Kazim
If your MuVo player turns off automatically after a few seconds of operation, or if it turns off immediately when you press any button on the player, it is possible that the battery is depleted or the firmware is corrupted.
To resolve this difficulty and prevent it from happening again, update the player's firmware
