How to use gps system


If you do not have the owner manual Google the model number with "manual" or as a last resort contact the Maker. (Sylvania is Philips who likely did not make the unit but had it made and their name put on it.)

I put new recharged batteries (Energizer ACCU rechargeable) on my BenQ DC 640 and noticed that the green light was flashing. When I went to the menu to change the mode, the left navigator key wasn't...


No, the batteries cannot make such problems. The problem may be with the navigator key itself. Try to remove the rear cover of camera and look under the navigator buttons. You must clean the mainboard and the buttons with alcohol and carefully remove any stain spots if exists. I have a similar camera and i observed that this type of camea are drawing a lot of current from the batteries so any battery i used died in under a year of moderate usage.My advice is to sell this camera and buy a quality Olimpus or Canon instead.

Fuse box diagram for 1999 lincoln navigator. the air ride in the back of my 1999 lincoln navigator isn't working and I want to know if it is possibly the fuse(hopefully) and if not what is the problem?


I had this problem last year with my LincolnI. I took it in and for 200 bucks I had to replace a wire that went out of my air suspension. Right after that it drove smooth again.

I am unable to upgrade my firmware on a Philips 42pf7321d


Most likely you have the latest firmware on your tv. You can check the version somewhere in the menus but your problem most like can only be fixed by replacing the y-up and y-down buffers.

Antenna required to connect ap 530in 802.11a mode


The manual for this AP states "If both Radio 1 and Radio 2 are set to the IEEE 802.11b/g mode, Radio 2 must be configured to an external antenna."
802.11a mode is only supported on Radio 2 per the documentation.

Details on the philips ap navigator F 440.


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. Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Philips ap navigator mk8( marine gps) Recently stopped fixing. All self tests, including antenna result in satisfactory.Could this be due to recent changes to gps satellites? Is there a solution?


I have a similar problem, unit not used since September 2008, now will not find any satellites. Self test all ok.   I know software updates were made available from time to time, last updated in 2004 by previous owner.

Philips navigator MK8 Gps antenna is showing good but no update. Red light continualy flashes indicating wrong date and time. Can you help


Hi Johnsue05

pls. check the signal to noise ratio of the antenna signal. Sea page 23 and 24 of this manual:

http://www.prokyon.dk/download/manualer/AP%20MK8%20MK9%20Installation%20manual.pdf

If the signal to noise ratio is low, the GPS may have a bad antenna, cable connection or a defective antenna.

If you have performed a cold start (i.e. changed the backup batterie) you have to wait for 2-3 hours until der GPS has downloaded the almanach information.

Hope this helps.
