The only way to test the car charger for the 765T is with another satnav. However the problem is most likely that the fuse in the plug of the car charger is blown. Near the top of the plug, that goes in the cigarette lighter socket, there's a ring. On most plugs it's silver but it's black on some. Unscrew the ring and the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose the silver nipple at the end of the plug. When you take it apart you will see the fuse. Replace the fuse and the problem should be solved.

I am installing the DEH-3200 into an 06 dodge ram. I bought a scorsche adapter kit and I followed all the instructions, but I can't get any power to the stereo? Any suggestions?


if you have a digital volt meter check powers at radio to see if your getting a good ground ..

take the black test lead of the meter put it on the ground were you mounted ground wire. then take the positve red test lead and the touch the red wire on harness from radio to see if there is 12 volts

and the do the same for the yellow wire constant power must have 12 volts all so if you get nothing either its a bad ground or fuse is blow then check fuses if everything is good and no fuses or blow then the radio is bad ....

How to convert 220 volts to 110 volts for the iPod Touch


<p> <p>The battery of an iPod Touch prepared for use in the United States is designed to be reloaded from the current supplied by a 110-volt electrical system. Power is transmitted to the battery charger with an iPod battery, which are connected via a USB cable and then connected to a 110 volt outlet. To use the power of a 220 volt outlet with an iPod Touch, set the current 220 volts to 110 volts. A conversion adapter voltage, also known as "Step Down Transformer," it is necessary and can be obtained from an electronics store, a hardware store and even some drug stores. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the 220-110 voltage converter card (aka, "Step Down Transformer") next to a 220 volt outlet. Plug the adapter into the outlet. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of a USB cable to the USB connector USB iPod charger iPod. Connect the other end of USB cable into your iPod's own socket on the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Plug the iPod into the 110 volt outlet in the battery adapter for the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Unplug the charger from the iPod adapter and the adapter from the outlet when the battery is charged. Unplug the USB cable from the iPod charger and iPod Touch. <br />

2006 Dodge Dakota - power outlet doesn't work. The #28 fuse checks fine.


Take a 12v test light and wrap the probe with electrical tape, leave about
1/4" exposed. With the key on, ground the test light wire and insert the
probe into the outlet and touch it to the center power contact. If the light
stays out and you have a good ground, you don't have +power at the
outlet. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad wire or socket. But if it
lights up, we go to the next step. Touch the probe to a known +power
source and ground the wire to the metal side in the outlet. If you don't
get light, check the ground for the outlet socket. Repair as needed.
If it lights up, then you know you have power and ground. Check the
plug on the device you're trying to use. I hope I was of some help.
Good luck.

My cigarette lighter is not charging in my car what could it be?


You mean there seems to be no power to the vehicle's lighter unit outlet.

This lighter unit outlet is normally wired through its own fuse so check the fuse panel in the car for a blown fuse. If blown it must be replaced with a fuse of the correct amperage. The owner's manual will show you where the fuse is located.

Before you check the fuse just check the cigarette lighter outlet with another plug-in device if you have one such as a portable 12 volt tire compressor or a 12 volt plug-in auxiliary light. It could be that if you are using a charger from the outlet, the charger plug or wiring may be faulty rather than the car's power outlet itself. (These outlets don't usually give trouble unless the wiring has been messed with or the outlet itself has been damaged or abused).

If no device works from the lighter power outlet check the fuse as it may be blown.

I purchased a used etx90ec. Two of the battery terminals are moderately corroded. The lights on the control do not come on and it doesn't work.


If you can clean up the battery terminals with sandpaper, then you will need to try an outside power source.

Buy either the 110 volt adapter or BETTER but a 12 volt power pack at Wal Mart (the kind you use to start a car) make sure it has a 12 volt cigarette lighter style plug.

You can buy either the 12 volt power cable or tthe 110 volt adapter from www.scopestuff.com. I never use the internal batteries, always a 12 volt power pack. The ETX likes steady 12 volt current.

If it does not work with the outside power source then something is burned out on the main board. You will need to return it to Meade for repairs. Here are several links you need.

12 volt Power outlet in Chrysler Mini Van does not work


im sure of a fuse somewere and its probably a large one.
if the unit shorts it has to have a fuse first thing.
you may find a fuse under the hood in the fuse box.
and then you may find a fuse in the unit itself .
the other thing is to remove it and connect it to another car battery.
if you have a bad unit then a salvage yard in your area should have one.
also test the power in your car going to the unit.if its set to run all the time then theres a fuse at the battery or the fuse box.
one other thing is check for recalls
you may get lucky.

hope this helps

1996 Cavalier 12 Volt power outlet in car doesn't work right?


Even thought the plug in is 12 volt. It's ouput is different. Most electronics have different ranges from 3-9 volts.
Does the 12 volt charger put out 12 volts? If so, it would burn up the electronics' capacitors on their power supplies.
How is the car's electronics doing? Are they too failing? If so, that would be a faulty voltage regulator, if not, I would hook up anything you use to the radio wires.
You cannot plug in anything directly to battery no matter what the person told you. Batteries charge, than release charge, a contiuous cycle. The power output is speratic and anything hooked straight up to the battery will need a fuse.

How to test unit without hooking up to vehicle.


You can connect the + and - from the stereo to a 12 volt DC power supply, or a step down transformer to test out the functionality.

This one is 20.00 bucks at Radio Shack.8f95084.jpg

Best of Luck.
