    My 700 is mounted on a weighted pad and loses power frequently, sometimes every few minutes. Anyone have this same issue? If so, any suggestions? Thanks

    MY MAGELLAN RM 700 WORKED FINE FOR A COUPOLE OF YEARS, THEN IT FELL OFF THE DASH, NOW YOU HAVE TO HOLD IT JUST RIGHT OR THE POWER WILL FAIL. THE BATTERY PACK SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE LOOSE ON THE BACK.

It may be the cradle is damaged. If any of those tongs are bent it could lose connection meaning your must now spend $70 to buy a new one which will also eventually malfunction. They've jacked up the price from $30 when I bought a new one to $70 in just a couple of years knowing it was a bad product and they keep breaking. I have a looooow opinion of Magellan at this point.

Tech SL-MC410. Continously displays "Checking Disc"


When the unit is saying "Checking discs" and neither goes further nor turns off (just says "Off" but doesn't), the reason is still the main belt (accessible from the top as soon as you lift the cover) that is too loose. When the belt is way too loose, the unit doesn't move at all, if the belt is little too loose, the player-unit will move a bit, but there is not enough torque on the gears to reach the end position (where the player unit is secured against movements).

Acer desktop PC locked up and now won't turn off or boot up


Hello,

I've seen a similar issue on Acer Veriton 7900. When you unplug the power chord while the machine is still running the BIOS/CMOS gets bugged up. If your PC doesn't have a 3 year warranty you can clear the CMOS/BIOS. To do this, note the following...

1.) Unplug the power cord

2.) Remove the CMOS battery from the unit

[OPTIONAL] move the jumper on the mainboard to the 'clear position' It should be indicated on your mainboard.After 30 seconds move jumper back on original position

3.) Wait for 30 seconds

4.) Place CMOS battery back into its position

5.) Reconnect the power cord and attempt to power on the unit.

Print head moves left and stays horrible noise


The problem is either something is interfering with the carrier movement OR the carrier homing sensor is broken/defective. First, turn off the power and manually move the carrier to the right side frame, check for foreign objects in the machine (pens, pushpins, paper clips etc.). Put some oil (10 weight) on a cloth and clean the chrome shaft that the carrier travels on.(by the rubber cogged belt). This is a common problem. If the sensor itself is the problem, take to a repair shop.(not common)

Unit says hello


This problem is normally caused by a dvd player with a dirty lens that it cannot read or detect a dvd in the player. At the same time if this is a dvd/vcr combo a vcr that will not load or is stuck can cause the problem. These can be checked by taking the screws off the unit and taking a look at the position of the dvd laser lens or the vcr position to see if it is in the fully eject position. The part that holds the laser lens to read the dvds can be moved manually back and forth to dislodge it from a stuck position with the power off. Depending on how long it sat around it could just be stuck. You see when you first turn the power on to the unit initially or try to eject a dvd, it will cycle through and try to read a dvd even though there is not one there on power up. If that assembly that moves the lens to read the dvd cannot move, it will cycle off and turn itself off even though you try to reset it with the power button.
A transistor on the power supply can also cause this problem but without taking signal and voltage measurements it would be difficult to pinpoint the exact one. So try moving the laser lens assembly manually and then turn it back on. Let me know. Good luck.

White d'lite 1750c presser foot in down position not recognized


I occasionally have the same problem with my White d'Lite 1750c. I turn the power off, let it rest a minute, then turn it on again, and the problem goes away for a long time (weeks, sometimes months). Of course, the settings go back to the default, so note your settings before turning the power off.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
