You subject issue "answering system wont work will not set up or operate"

My answer:

What do you mean when you say it will not operate or setup? Here are some questions for you?

1. is the phone plugged into a wall outlet?
2. is the plug or adapter bad?
3. Did you change the battery's?

Number 1. Its a Vtec a very inexpensive phone to try and trow $12.00 at.

Number 2. if the unit does not power on check the a/c adapter change if its dead.

Number 3. if it turns on and does not operate chances are the in-nerds are fried in it cost of repairing the phone with parts $35-$40 bucks and for that cost you can purchase two of these units have a warranty to boot and peace of mind.

Number 4. In all seriousness here ask yourself the following ?'s

1. Is this worth a fix?
2. Repairs ranging over the dollar amount for a new phone?
3. Do I know basic electronics?
4. Do I have a soldering iron or gun and do I have soldering skills?
5. Do I have a voltage tester?

You would need all this supply and THE PART to fix this unit what I would do is this:

1. does it have a warranty?
2. is it still within 1 year?

If so Take it in to the store witch your purchased and get the contact number names and addresses of Vtec and have the unit repaired.

My diagnosis here is simple:

You have a bad a/c adapter if it does not turn on
You have a bad logic board inside the base if it does not respond to your commands.
You have a bad battery in the headset if it does not turn on.

I basically broke down what you need to check for and wrote a small book here, yes it took me time to do and I hope your next reaction is Thanks for the information and Click the accept button :)

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The nuvi 3790T shouldnt have any issues with your phone, try your phones bluetooth setting to see if the nuvi is set as its handsfree device. Also make sure the phone has enough power to use bluetooth, when the battery is low bluetooth wont work.

Couple of problem with my acer aspire one. The usual battery wont charge one .. have seen answers here so cool The other one is it wont go past the blue acer page before logon .. how do i resolve...

Seems like you need a new battery. If you want to confirm that your battery won't work again try it on similar Acer laptops and find out whether the battery is screwed or not. The answer to the second prob is that you should try booting it with a free distribution live cd like Ubuntu to check whether you've got an Operating System problem or not. U can also try the recovery by pressing the f10 or the f5( in some laprops) or the esc button at the beginning and check the Advanced recovery option for reinstalling the Operating System on your default operating system drive ( this will work only if you are having a recovery disk provided by Acer for your OS ). Another solution is u can format your laptop and install any OS of your choice !!!

First action:
click on start>run and type in "prefetch" without quotes
then select all fine and delete permanently.
and reboot your computer once.
and if problem still remains then
run full virus scan with up to date antivirus software.
and if you don't have install antivirus software then you can run scanning online too:

one you are done with scanning just reboot your system once.
