Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.

I went on youtube on my Kurio 4s and then suddenly it freezes it won even turn off and its hot IM FREAKING WHAT DO I DO????


Turn it completely off. The reason its hot andvfreezing up is two words, Youtube!!
It ttrying to watch, download or even send. Its too Much for it to be able to do. Next time turn your device off. That will stop the Rams from jamming everything ,freezing everything. But just reboot by pressing and holding the powerbutton until the device turns off and comes back on. When it turns back on release the power button.

Hello i hava aq-see qt426 surveillance system and after a power outage it won't boot, keeps rebooting and freezes on 'system initializing" screen. do i have to format the HD or it could be...


Hello,

you need to format the HD. The sudden power outage is the reason the unit is freezing. As a matter of fact, the HD is the cause of the freeze. The HD has not been able to recover from the sudden power outage.

Format the HD and hopefully the unit should be back to normal.

But if unit is not in order after formatting the HD, please let me know for further direction.

Good luck.

Radar detector just suddenly stopped working


Try manually rebooting, turn it off. Then when your turn it back on, keep button or switch down as it turns on and keep it depressed for about 15 seconds even as it is booting up. Then try it. Thanks Mike

Fujitsu Siemens Amilo li 1705 freezes/reboots


This problem is common on this model, I have 3 with similar symptoms. The cause is bad soldering on the graphics chip as far as I know. I have been looking for someone who knows how to fix it. I think a reball is the answer.

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.


same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Eee 1005ha keyboard and touchpad suddenly freezes at random times


Mine does the same. I don't know what it is. It's not that it's frozen up because every program I'm running continues to run and when I press the power off button it brings up the choices to turn off restart or stand by.

DISH Model 625 skips to the end


Hi claramarie20there are a couple of things to look at when this happens. The first thing youwill want to do is replace the batteries in the remote, after you replace thebatteries you will need to press the MENU button and the numbers of 6-1-1. Itwill take you to the Point Dish screen and from there please select the CheckSwitch tab and then the Test button. After the test completes exit out of allmenus and the receiver will reboot and acquire the signal and it will stop the receiverfrom powering on and off.

External hard drive -help please?


Hi

Have you checked it on other pc ? If yes then your hard disk is corrupted you lost partition information but dont worry u can retrieve your data by getbackdata for NTSF. Its able to retrieve about 98% of data or other is Acronis Disc Direct Suite, the same reliable and really working tool to restore information. It really restored ALL files in lost partition
After using these tools just format your hardisk and it will work dont worry
