Cobra -- frozen at last location


A few days ago i shut off my system near home...when i turned it back on this morning, it stil thinks i am at that previous location on the highway. I have had it on all day (twice i powered it off, unplugged all cords etc and restarted it). It still says i am at that same location, and doesnt show me driving. I am leaving mid-day tomorrow from NJ to NH and dont know what to do!

Make sure the unit is not in a location that is being blocked. The best place to have it is mounted on the windshield.

Go to the page that says GPS INFO. If you dont have any green bars then your unit is not connecting to any satelites. If this is the case just move the unit to the windshield until it connects.

If the weather is terrible it may not connect for a while.

    Hello, i started up my 60gb playstation last night and it ran fora few minutes then turned itself off. Turned it back on and it would stay on for a few seconds and turn off,repeatedly. Did it this morning...

    Hello, I think You should have a cooling fan that can cool it from heat. Because the cause of that problem is that the prossesor is over heated and it cant contiune. So you have to take out of power for sometime (1 hour or more) then try it again. If you need me call on me back.

    50 inch Sanyo Vizon Plasma TV. Has sound but no picture for last few days. 2 years old

    This set has LG insides, it will have failed on either the Y-Sustain PCB or the Z-Sustain PCB.

    Quite common.

    Repair estimates should be $250 - £350 depending on which has failed.

    Stick it on eBay, it will fetch good money faulty.

    Frozen Apple Logo

    if itunes recognizes the phone use the restore option if not you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.

    We left the freezer door open all night by accident two days ago

    I turned the fridge side off on mine, and left it overnight (last night!). This morning there is frozen stuff in the freezer. I think the compressor motor just needed ALOT of time to cool down b4 it would work properly again

    Where is the Alternator located in a 1997 Lexus LS 400

    If the car ran and got you home after a jump start I doubt the alternator is bad. Check your battery. And remember never ever disconnect the battery cable with the engine running.

    Use on of those quick freon kits that come with the fill tube and gauge. It sounds like you have a slow leak and on a hot day there is enough pressure in the system to trip the switch. If thats not the problem check the wiring coming from the switch. The switch is probably near the filter/dryer. Thats the metal canister that sweats liquid on a hot day.

    Computer turns itself On

    the turn off settings must be wrong, there should be a empower programme if it;s been refurbed properly with the software that tells the pc to turn off or log off or hibernate when you shut down the pc. Either that or you are logging off and not shutting down, then closing the lid and then if theres a antivirus programme or other shedulled to run awakes the pc although you think its off, i would do as you normally do to shut it off then press the liitle rubber pin just below the screen and see if it restarts and opens up a programme.
