Check the green LED on the charger adapter - could be the fuse blown. Also check green LED on top of device - should be on when charging.
ALso, on the route confirmation screen, it shows the battery level, and if it is charging. Try wiggling the power jack and see if it makes a difference.

This may seem like a dumb question, but have you tested the lighter socket to see if it's working? If the TomTom is plugged in, you shouldn't get a low battery warning.

    If the car's lighter socket is working properly, the problem could be in the charger's plug. It may have blown the fuse. Test the GPS with the home plug-in charger. I'd try to rule out the simple stuff first before I tried to get TomTom to replace the unit as defective.

Why won;t my irulu 10.1.1 tablet turn on. i push the button and nothing happens, when charger is plugged in it gets warm both tablet and plug


It sounds like you've done most of the things you would reasonably be expected to do to make it function; since it is only 2 months old I would strongly urge you to go back to the retailer and make them replace it or refund you, as your rights in most countries/states allow.

If you're set against doing this, try holding down the power and volume down key for at least ten seconds to see if this boots it into hard reset mode. If this doesn't do anything, try again holding down power with each of the other buttons to see if you can activate any other developer/reset modes.

However, I have read reports that this particular tablet has up to a 40% failure rate in its first six months.

If you can possibly get it refunded, do that and buy something else.

Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.


One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

I would say that the battery is low from sitting. Some alarm systems have a low voltage indicator that sets off the alarm. The flashing lights and clicking (alarm module) under the dash are indicative of just such a problem. Have the battery charged and consider disconnecting it or you can purchase a solar charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter to keep the battery charged (usually under $30 @ Lowes). However if you remove the battery is may you to lose radio codes etc... I believe the solar charger is the best option at this point. Have someone give it a boost with jumper cables or a charger to stop the flashing and clicking in the interim. Thanks for using Fixya and please post a comment and rate my assistance.

it would appear the battery is "weak" and needs to be replaced. although testing it with a battery tester may show it is fine. when you turn on the camera you are putting the battery under a load and the voltage may drop too low. quick test would be to test the battery voltage after you take it out of the charger and then again after you have used it to power on the camera. ebay would likely be your most inexpensive source for a replacement battery.
as a side note i suggest you go to the canon website to find out if there is a recall on that particular battery. i realize this is about camera's but my garmin gps battery was recalled (and the gps was about 4 years old) and it was replaced for free.

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W, which comes on normally when I start the car, is not coming on. It is only about 5 months old. I keep it plugged into the lighter at all times. Do I need to worry about a battery in...


more than that! keeping it plugged into the car is damaging the SIIRF chip and battery when you start the motor. Also the unit needs to be charged properly before use in an AC charger or vIA USB The DC in the car will not fully charge the unit. In fact it also leaks power back to the battery of the car when you turn ignition off, so dropping the volatage and amps of the battery in the GPS.
ALWAYS UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ENGINE

Always charge/recharge it prior to use in a AC or USB environment

Battery life is average 2 years unless used like you say you have. Then 3-6 months might see it collapse!

try a full and proper recharge first

Battery is low


It should take as long as it would if it were plugged into the wall. The power draw should be the same. Although you should make sure your car battery is up to it.
