I finally managed to remove the cover and solder the broken wire. Works fine exept the keyboard, but that is a result of old soda spill. This computer has been used with external keyboard for some months. I cleaned the keyboard with luke warm water and placed it for dry for 36 hours, but there are still som keys that dont work and Fn seems to be constantly on.

5500 Navman no brightness selection


Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (no antenna socket on i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the gold PCB flat wire and remove the section around the burn.
scrape a small amount of green off the gold flat PCB wire so you can solder a new wire to bypass the short. any 2.5mm insulated wire will do to bridge the gap you have just scraped away, there is plenty of room for a 1 inch wire.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

I need a power supply cable for a Yamaha ps6100 portable piano keyboard... by the end of october. I can't find one anywhere, and Yamaha UK say it'll take a month to get one from them. Any ideas? Please


My solution was to change the original power inlet (mains socket) of the keyboard with a Euro IEC C14 power chassis inlet. Now it is ready to run with a standard power cable which you can find on nearly any computer or other electrical component.
What you need to do this, is a kind of file, the Euro IEC C14 power chassis inlet with the proper cable and a soldering iron.
The change of the chassis inlet was very easy: open the keyboard and loosen the two screws which holds the socket (it's more easy for you if you remove the plastic cap from the PWR Supply also). Disconnect and remove the old socket. Then take a file (or what ever you prefer - I used a Proxxon to speed up things a little bit) and widen the original opening very slightly. Solder the connecting cables from the old Yamaha socket to the new Euro socket, an install it. Close the keyboard und have fun :-)
Maybe this sounds very tricky and sophisticated to you, in fact it took not more than 20 minutes for me (if you have anythig you need at hand).
This works not only for PS-6100 but also for Yamaha PSR-6300.

Socket of my laptop has broken where we connect our power supply..still we can charge it if we connect through some angles....if we need 2 change the whole board..or can replace the socket only...how much...


1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

When i put hose in port it will not turn on...all the other ports work except one


Open the door on the inlet port and look inside. You should see 2 small pins. These pins are spring loaded to make contact with the metal end of your hose when you plug it in. Two low voltage wires are screwed to the underside of these pins. The low voltage wires go all the way back to the low voltage switch/relay on your central vac power unit.
Sometimes one or both of these pins will just break so that they don't make contact with the end of your hose. If you see no pins or just one then you will have to replace the inlet cover.
If both pins are present; push down on them with your finger. If you feel resistance then your inlet is probably OK.
CAUTION: IF YOUR CENTRAL VAC INLETS HAVE A 110 VOLT CONNECTION, REMOVAL/REPLACEMENT OF YOUR INLET SHOULD ONLY BE DONE BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Remove the two screws in the faceplate. Carefully slide the inlet cover out. Check the two screw on wiring connections. Make sure both wires are securely attached and that there are no breaks.
If neither of the above fixed your problem, you may have a broken or disconnected wire somewhere between this inlet and the low voltage witch at your power unit.

Power supply connector on the on board broke off


Well it depends on how much damage is/has been done. I often fix damage such as this. You can often effect a repair by bridging the broken PCB by soldering, wire bridges over them, sometimes I have even totally removed broken pwr socket and soldered the power wires directly into place, if a new socket can't be obtained. Make sure you trace out whats what though first draw it out. Remember sometimes, there is sort of a switch in the pwr socket that cuts battery in & out. So, as long as you can get a Positive connection & then any earth connection will do for the Minus. Then it should work... Be Careful.

Tomtom one xl usb socket broken off main pcb


I have gone around this problem by removing the internal battery, and soldering a female power connector to it.I now it on 3 aa batteries, alkaline cells givbe me an autonomy of about an hour, maybe duracells will give a bit more duration.

When i have time ,I will work on splicing the wires on the cigar plug adaptor and use that as a permanent power source. The wires for the Lipo cell are Red positive, solder this to the yellow wire( probably a battery gauge wire) and black ground.

Hope this helps

No power to unit


Remove the power plug and reopen the unit. Usually the socket will be soldered directly to a Printed Circuit Board. Look in the underside (where the solder joints are and you'll see the joints associated with the power socket. One of these is either a bad connection or the solder pad has lifted and broken the track on the PC board. If it's the solder pads give them a workout with a soldering iron if it still plays up scrape the protective lacquer of the PCboard Tracks and resolder them to the socket's solder joints. This should solve your problem. The best way to spot a bad connection is to reinsert your plug (making sure the other end isn't plugged into the wall socket) and lever the plug up, down, left and right. If there's anything faulty you'll see it. The solder joints will move very slightly and if the track is fractured you should spot that too. One other tip is that there is a switch built into the socket which will disable the battery power when you plug the unit into power. I have seen a few of these switches go bad but the chance of that is extremely small. I'd put my money on the socket's solder joints. BMW
