Why does my Unlocked SG5 keep saying my SIM Cards been removed & make me restart it? SIM has been in SG5 for 3wks, no issues. Then 3dys ago it started saying the SIM is removed. Please Help!


The sgs5 is an awful phone with many unsolved bugs. You may try a factory reset andor/ getting a new sim card.

If neither work, sometimes rusty forms on the sim reader's pins so you can buy a sheet of fine sandpaper, cut a strip with the width of the SIM card and long enough so that you can insert the strip of paper with the rough side facing the pins and be able to pull it out. Then being careful slide the sand paper in and out a few times, this will scrape any material which can be interfering with the appropriate contact between each pin and each section of the card. This also applies to any kind of electrical contact basically.

Hope it works.

New battery and still not holding charge


Not sure what kind of battery you are using in your GPS. If you can put in AA or AAA size batteries, try to use NiMH rechargeable batteries the can be bought with capacities till 2500 mA/h. (sometimes suggested 2700 on the battery) but still 2500 mA/h is very much. Do charge the batteries with a charger that is capable to charge correct. When putting a NiMH battery on an old charger for NiCd batteries, the battery never get the full capacity.
If the Battery is inside and you must go to a repair shop for replacement, please ask if they can check if the GPS is not draining to much power, because of any malfunction.

My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

My SkyCaddie SG5 turns off on its own on the course and is slow to update yardages. It worked perfectly for a year and then I noticed the screw that hold the battery cover closed was missing. I replaced...


i have the same problem, I turn it on to play and about 2 min later it shuts off. i plugged it into the wall and it passed the 30min trial test. when i removed the back a small little half circle piece came out. not sure what to do??

Sky Caddie SG5 will NOT turn on


Hi David
I know this is some time after you posted your question. I had the same problem with mine and was ready to throw it in the bin.
Searced the net and someone had posted that they bumped into a Skygolf rep who suggested lifting the charging flap and blowing into the hole.
I thought he's having a laugh, but guess what it worked.
Good luck if you've not already fixed it.

Installed new battery and still shows low battery after 2 holes and 24 hours of charging


if all cables on battery are clean and tight, then most likely it is the alternator putting out a low charge. test the alternator it should be at least 14 or a little more when running. 12.5 to 13 when off. if alternator is ok, then check all wiring from alternator to battery, and make sure the battery ground is ok!! best of luck carl,
