Question about ASUS MyPal A636

1 Answer

It keeps turning off when it's not at the cradle. So, I purchased new battery, but it still keeps turning off. I suspect that it's not getting power from its battery due to some reason. Any hint? Where should I go to fix this?

Is the battery got a tight connection to the pins in the device? Try jamming it in with paper. Mine had the sae problem when it tried to use the SD card. When I jammed in some paper to make a closer connection it worked.

My desk top comp does not keep the actual date & time,even after repeated corrections

Even when you turn the power off on your HP desktop computer, a small battery much like a watch battery keeps time and stores basic system configuration information.
If this battery runs down or is damaged, it is easy to replace.
Turn off your HP and unplug all cables attached to it.
Unplug the power cable last.
Turn the computer around so that its rear faces you.
The panel on the computer's right side will be attached to the rear panel with two small screws near the top and bottom of the computer.
Remove these with your Phillips screwdriver.
Slide off the side panel and put it aside.
You should now be able to see into the PC.
Locate the CMOS battery.
It will be a small, flat, round metal disc embedded in a cradle near the center of the motherboard (the largest circuit board in the computer).
Use a flat-head screwdriver to release the catch on the battery's cradle and remove it.
Note which way the battery was oriented (positive side up or down) and its voltage (engraved on the battery's surface).
Call or visit a computer supply store and purchase an identical replacement battery, using the specifications gleaned from the original battery.
Snap your new battery into the cradle, orientated the same as the original battery.
Reattach the computer's side panel and reconnect all cables.

Nuvi 750 Car charger connection is intermittent.Either the Car charger or the Nuvi 750 connection is intermittent. The device will display a warning that it is using the battery - 27 seconds to turn o

It is very rare that it would be a problem with the Nuvi 750 GPS itself. This is because there are stationary gold pads on the bottom of the 750. No moving parts to wear out. We have seen problems with a bad plug on the charger that plugs into the cradle and the receptacle on the cradle can go bad as well. I would suspect more toward the cradle as we have seen the receptacles break away from the printed circuit board that is inside of the cradle. Best way to troubleshoot is to find a friend who has a duplicate charger and cradle and swap each piece, one at a time and see which resolves the problem... either the cradle is bad or the charger plug is bad. If you want us to test your unit, cradle and charger, let us know. Good luck! :) More info on charger issues here:

My Motorola MC9590-K keeps telling me the USB device is not recognized when I connect with the cradle. The unit does it even when I use a different cradle.

Is it the right cradle to connect. Sometimes the cradles look alike but actually are different. You can check the back and the bottom and see whether all the ports are the same between those cradles. Replace the battery and see if you suspect that is a battery issue. Some of those batteries are not really endurable.

Purchased nuiv 765 Aug '09 and am now unable to charge either by car or home......what to do next??? Need new battery???


have you tried powering the unit directly not using the powered cradle? often with the 700 series the powered cradle will break. If you can try obtaining another cradle to see if that is the issue. Also there was a recall of some of the 700 with bad batteries try inputting your serial number here to see if yours unit was one

Hope this helps!

All palm information has vanished.

Your battery may have 'died' or not been recharged in the cradle. Make sure the light on the cradle is on (green) when the Palm is correctly seated. If not, follow the cable from the cradle to the serial port at the back of the computer. The other wire entering that connector comes from the power pack - check that the power pack is plugged in to the power supply and is switched on. If he green light still isn't illuminating then the power pack is suspect and may need replacing.
After it has been in the cradle with the green light on for a couple of hours, do a hotsync. This should restore some of the data. If you get this far, then you will need to follow the instructions in the manual to restore your programs. If the battery is dead then I think it is unlikely you will get another since Palm no longer services the Vx

Battery Charge error

Hey Lak_69,
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
