Power cord contact loose

The power cord starting loosing connectivity with the contact at the back of the receiver and the unit would turn off. It has become steadily worse and my attempts to secure it with tape have been unsuccessful. I read somewhere that dielectic grease can help. Anyone have a better solution?

Buy a new power cord. The contacts don't contact so well anymore. You can try gently pulling out the spring-like contacts on the cord and this may help for a while

You can use tinfoil on the inside of the female connector. this will basically allow it to be conductive. The best solution is to go radio shack and get another plug and soder it in place but this can be a little tricky. So see if the tin foil will work for you.

Our magellan keeps turning off. the plug seem loose. could it be the cord or is it the battery and can it be changed


Check your power cord. You may be losing power at the plug. When plugged in it may be losing contact with the recepticle. The power indicator light initially comes on but, breaks contact and therefore stops charging the unit. If this is the case you can sometimes plug into an adapter and get a tighter fit.

The plug where the power cord plugs in seems to have a loose connection. I keep losing power to the unit. any suggestions?


just try to change the ac, maybe it is the one that is defective, or if your suspicion is right open it and solder the loose contact

My garmin won't charge


Hello there:
There are a couple of reasons that these units do not charge the first is pretty obvious is to check the power cord tjo ensure that it is working properly.
Next remove the power cord and then remove the battery
now get a qtip and some rubbing alcohol and clean all the areas that the battery contacts and the battery it'self and inspect the terminals that the battery connects to and see if there is any visible damage.
now check te place where the power cord is plugged into the unit and see if the part is loose if so i t will need to be repaired ok once all of this has been done
put the battery back in the device nad plug it in and try to turn it on and see if it will now charge.
If not then you wil have to have the unit service because of a faulty part on the mainboard for the gps ok?
Hope this has been very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael

Stereo integrated amplifier a30, turns on some times


A few things to check:

- a bad power cord or connector to the unit on the cord (if any), bad power connector on the unit (if any) or bad connector soldering on the circuit board (replace cord or resolder/replace connector if necessary)

- main power switch could have dirty contacts or some damage (needs to be cleaned or replaced)

- an electrolytic filter capacitor (any of them) could be dried out, blown (bulged at the top), badly soldered or otherwise faulty (should be replaced if faulty and resoldered if there is a loose solder joint)

- a connector (any of them) could be loosely plugged, oxydized or have bad solder joints on any pins (connections should be checked, dirty contacts cleaned, loosely soldered pins resoldered)

- any other components could be poorly soldered or damaged (resolder or replace, as necessary - might require technical service to establish which components are bad, if any)

Note that the problem may be any of the above, a combination of any of the above or something entirely different, i'm just pointing to some possible causes/solutions.

Hope you can fix it.

I have a kscs25inss kitchenaid refrigerator. I opened the door and there was no power, the unit was not running (no compressor, no lights, no water). The circuit breaker did not trip, but I reset it...


Hi, Most likely the outlet has a loose wire or the cord for the refridgerator has a loose wire. Check the outlet on the wall see if it moves at all or has any loose wires in the back...if that looks ok replace the cord to the refridgerator. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

I keep getting a Protector reding on my screen and it will not let me do anything. What do I do to fix this?


Try disconnecting everything (speakers cables, signal cables, all other units) except the power cord, then turn the unit on, if the protector message persists, then the fault is in the reciever.

If this is the case, you should check the speaker and signal connectors for any damage, shorts or loose solder contacts, also check the unit for any shorted or broken wires, loose wire connections, bad solder contacts on connector pins, bad solder contacts on ANY other components (give some extra attention to the components that tend to warm up while they operate, like main power amp transistors / ICs, voltage regulators, power resistors, diodes, also coils, capacitors, etc). Any loose solder connections should be resoldered.

If there's no message when you've disconnected the outside equipment, you have either a bad speaker, a bad speaker cable, a bad signal interconnection cable, or a fault in any of the units that were connected to the reciever. You can find which one is the cause by turning the reciever off, then connecting one cable or unit, turning the reciever on again, see if there's a message, if there's none, turn it off again, connect the next unit / cable and so on, until you get the protector message. The cable or unit that will make the message appear is most probably the cause for the trouble (there might be loose solder connections on other units' cable connectors or other components). When you plug and unplug the cables many times, with time this will loosen the solder connection on the pins inside the unit, so these need to be resoldered.

Hope you can find out what it is.

DVD no signal HDMI


Loose or crack or cold solder joint holding the socket of HDMI.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the TV turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If this solution help you understand the problem :rate as fixya..

Good luck;

Dell 2300MP - no power


It looks like you may have a loose contact somewhere around the AC input. Try pushing the AC cord or wiggle it gently, if power comes back on; you have a loose connection.

Restarting while in use


Mine just started doing the same thing. I took apart the speaker power cord, but don't see anything wrong with it. I thought I saw the unit turn off/on one time when I moved the cigarette plug back and forth, but as I said the wires are fine. I have the power cord apart right now and have 12 volts hooked up to the wires directly and the unit has been sitting here for 30 minutes without resetting.

Unit scrolls "Goodbye!" and shuts off and on spontaneously


It is receiving a signal to shutdown and restart. This sounds like the power on selector may be dirty or damaged. It may require disassembly to get to the switch or contact pad.

If all else fails, I recommend contacting a local car audio professional, or you may contact Clarion customer support directly by clicking here:

I trust this information has proven beneficial.
