After speaking to a technician at Standard Horizon, I was able to figure out that the charge output needed to be 12VDC and 1A. Knowing this, at Radio Shack I found an Enercell 3/4.5/6/7.5/9/12VDC AC-to-DC Power Adapter (Product 273-316) and the Adaptaplug tip "H" (Product 273-340). Be sure to insert the tip to provide a Negative Tip output. Cost was $22 for the adapter and $7 for the tip.

SOURCE: I am trying to find a replacement battery for a standard horizon handheld VHF model # HX350s

  • The manufacturer stopped making them battery packs a few years back. You can still get a battery pack from here http://www.primecell.com/webpages/HHRadio/standard.htm (second one down on the list according to your model)
  • Here is another place http://www.nicdladyonline.com/rebuilding/standard.html (first one on the list)
  • The pack itself consists or 8 AA NiCad rechargeable batteries. The ones used to make battery packs have metal tabs on the positive and negative side rather than how the AA normally come. This is because soldiering to standard batteries is a pain if not dangerous and flat batteries make a much cleaner pack as well. So you can take that old pack apart and soldier 8 rechargeable NiCads in the exact same way as the one your radio uses. If you don't have soldiering skills the the $40 pack would be advised.


  • Hope this helps.

Frozen screen cannot reset


Most GPS problems - Hangs, frozen screens, problems acquiring satellites, ETC, can be attributed to the device not having the latest firmware installed.
This firmware enables it to communicate with the satellites - but if they aren't speaking the same language they get confused easily. For Garmin GPS Automotive units, Garmin has you do the following before sending it in for repairs:
1 - SOFT RESET
2 - HARD RESET (CLICK HERE to see instructions for either reset)
3 - UPDATE the device using their WebUpdater software (CLICK HERE for that) Garmin is the only company that offers repairs AFTER the warranty has expired. They offer a FLAT RATE REPAIR service for units no longer in warranty. For other GPS units please consult your owner's manual or their support site - as each model - and even manufacture dates - can lead to different reset procedures. TomTom
NAVIGON

MAGELLAN NEXTAR - does NOT offer any types of Firmware or map upgrades or repair services. Instead - they have an exchange program to update to a new UNIT for around the same price as a repair would be. CLICK HERE for more on that. WARRANTY on most GPS devices is 1 year from the date of purchase.

Broken screens are considered ABUSE - and not covered under warranty.

Finally - If your unit is on the charger for HOURS, You've tried both the car AND USB type charger, and you turn it on... it stays on for a minute (or so) then powers down or never comes on at all - the battery has lost it's ability to hold a charge and must be replaced. Looking around YouTube - you can get a tutorial on how to CAREFULLY crack open just about any GPS. The tool(s) necessary typically are included with the battery purchase. Typically batteries run about $25 +/-. NiCd batteries are meant to be energized once a month so they keep active, and don't build up deposits that lead to their premature failure.

I hope this was helpful for you.

HI I THINK I AM MISSING A ADAPTER TO HOOK 12 VOLT BATTERY TO TOY OR CHARGER IS THERE A PART MISSING


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

A charger is usually equipped with the factory packing. If not then definitely you need to buy another one. You can also use a standard 12 volt charger to charge the battery with a few modifications but that will be D.I.Y project which many people didn't like to do...Now its upto you, What you want to do....
I can guide you through the process if you want that, but I'll need some info regarding the shape and make of the battery( more Preferably an Image).

Best of Luck,

Do RATE the solution, if Found helpful,

Regards.
