SInce it had identified havve the battery replaced to see if the fault clears up , if not measure the battery voltage to the unit, can be that the sensor circuit is defective or might have a drop of voltage due to changes in a zener diode shorting.

Clicking sounD wneh trying to start

Usually that sound means a low battery.

The clicking is caused by the battery voltage dropping below 9 volts, due to the load drawn by the starter, when the starter solenoid engages. The low voltage isn't enough to keep the solenoid energized and its spring returns it, thus cutting power to the starter. Absent the starter's load, voltage is restored, energizing the start solenoid and the cycle repeats.

In any case, when the battery gets that low you usually need to leave the jumper cables connected for 5-10 minutes before trying to start it.

I try 2 put it in my pc with using usb it said low battery and it keeps saying that over and over i tried 2 keep it off for days but it still keeps saying low battery i dont know wat 2 do i tried...

Please check the player using another PC to confirm if there are any faults on the USB of your PC. If the same fault repeats, connect to remove all files, format the memory and see if the charge holds, in case the player is hanging up.If so the battery is faulty within and you need to seek an estimate.

What are my options to deal w/ dead spots in my home - wrt310n

First, it is all about placement of your router. try to put your router in an open space, not too high up, not too low down. Keep objects away from it and keep it out of the corner.

Second, If these do not cut down on dead spots, you need to get a wireless repeater. A repeater repeats the wireless signal from farther away. Its like a second router that is closer, so you can get better signal.

My new Tom Tom will not start past the first screen that shows the name Tom do I get it to operate properly. If I depress the start button for about 14 seconds it goes to a green screen or...

It is likely that your battery is low or nearly-dead, particularly if you haven't used your GPS for a while and it has not been plugged in (to be kept charged). That's why it doesn't start (even if it is plugged in when you're trying to start it up again now). Don't try to repeat the startup (too often) as it will mess up your sw / data (when your battery is low or half dead) You'll want to plug it in (e.g. using your USB or wall adapter) for up to 24 hours or so, to charge the battery. Then start it up and keep it plugged in until your battery is fully charged.

If Ok the battery must charge but if the charge drops off the batttery is faulty provided the functions of the phone are OK.

Repeat car battery jumping

As long as the battery in your vehicle is never discharge to the point that it needs to be jumped, probably not any appreciable impact to your batteries life.

In theory, if the engine is running on your vehicle, your alternator is probably taking a large part of the load to start his car. Your alternator/voltage regulator may take a bigger hit than your battery.
