Question about Sony NV-U74T Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My unit is dead. Is there a fuse somewhere that can be replaced to get it started again? Perhaps the batteries are dead and can't take a charge? I haven't used it all that much.

After a short ride 40 miles.. My evo fatboy started backfiring sputtering an died. An will do nothing when the starter switch is pressed ...no turning over just silence.


Perhaps a dead battery or blown fuse, first check on your fuse box to see for a blown fuse.If this happens then you have a short in your wire somewhere....

This was an intermitten problem until yesterday. When you turn the key to start the van everything goes dead. Sometimes when i would place the gear shift in neutral all power would come back and the van...


You have a bad connection with the battery somewhere. The battery controls all the power, not any of the relays. It is probably making noise cause it doesn't get power. You need to check all your connections and make sure the terminals and post are cleaned. Make sure your ends are tight. They may need done over with new terminal ends. Check all your wires in the charging system. Somewhere along that route, you have a bad connection, loose wire, or bad wire perhaps.

GPS shuts off as soon as it starts up


Do you know if the battery is dead?

Try plugging the unit into a computer using a USB plug, it will take longer to charge this way probably 20 mins full charge...

It that charges and goes dead again while you are using a Cigarette lighter plug adapter, it could be that the fuse is blown in the adapter plug...... if so Unscrew the silver or black bottom of plug and check fuse

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the 30 Amps main fuse and its holder clips? It would be integrated with the starter relay. The fuse or the fuse holder may have heat related problem(s) causing it to loose conductivity when hot.The fuse may require replacement even if it tests good and/or the fuse holder would need cleaning / crimping. To locate the starter relay (main fuse), follow the battery cable from the + terminal of the battery.

Please postback results.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Battery light blinking red during charging


Dell or Panasonic? Your post has both listed.

If the blinking light on a Dell is yellow or amber or orange (somewhere in that color range) and continues to blink the entire time it is plugged into AC power (wall outlet) and when you unplug it from the wall the laptop immediately dies .... then you battery is dead and needs replaced.

If the blinking light stops after a while (perhaps a minute?) and then turns green while plugged into AC power, then it is successfully charging - or so it thinks.

When you unplug it from the wall, does it stay up and running?
If it runs, it's OK - just ignore the light and plan on getting a new battery one day, start browsing now. :)
If it dies immediately upon unplugging, then your battery is dead and needs replaced.

Battery is dead 2004 nissan frontier v6


Check the alternator and battery clemmas/wires coming from alternator. It looks like no charge from it coming to battery. If it is second battery already this is the sign. You can do it free of charge at autozone store. But any way as a temporary solution you can buy battery charger ($25 walmart) and charge the battery back if battery is damaged you will see it right away (it wont be charging). After you charge battery back start the engine run it for 30 minutes (if Alternator OK it is enough to charge battery back), stop and start again. If no start alternator is a problem.
Good Luck

although unfamilliar with your particular induction cooktop.If you have a fuse thats gone bad, adn you replace adnthat fuse goes bad upon powering up, it sure sound s as if you have a dead short somewhere under there triggering it to blow. no wires touching any metal (fallen off terminals perhaps??))if not id start diconnecting power line leading to individual switches, perhaps a short within the switch if shorting out unit.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
