My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

My Tomtom will not turn on even if it is on the charger.


If your tom tom does not seem to charge, then there seem to be a problem somewhere in the unit. You need to run a check on the battery, the charger and the device itself.

First test the charger by trying to use it on another device, if it charges the device, then it is working perfectly fine, but if it does not, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replace with a new one.

Test the battery also, by inserting it into another device, plug it with a well tested charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge. If it does turn on, then it means your battery is intact, but if it does not, then it means the battery is dead and cannot hold a charge. And the solution to that is for you to replace the battery.

Test the device by inserting a well tested battery in it, and connecting a well tested charger on to it also, if it does not charge, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or something with the device.

After carrying out these tests, you will be able to detect the problem and how to solve it.

I hope this information was helpful to you.

My garmin nuvi 255 turns on for a few seconds after the start up screen then shuts right off


It simply means the device is not properly charged, that is why it is not powering on beyond the start up screen.This problem only comes up when the battery is not properly charged, therefore not being able to power up the gps beyond the loading map page. Try to reset the unit by holding the power button for about 15 seconds, it will restart the unit, once it restarts it, check if it will get pass the loading map page. Then you try to back up the software on a computer, format it and restore the software back on the unit. If that does not help, then you carry out the following tests.

Try to charge the gps device for about 2 hours then try to turn it on. If it does not come on, then it means the battery did not get charged. That can be a problem from either the battery or the charger or the charging port.

First test the battery by fixing it in another gps and charging it for about 2 hours then turn it on. If it powers on the gps, then it means the battery is okay, but if it does not turn it on, then it means the battery is weak and cannot hold a charge and the solution is for you to replace the battery.

Next you test the charger by trying it out on another gps device, if it turns it on, then it means the charger is intact but if it does not turn it on, then the fault is from the charger.

Finally, test the gps itself by trying to charge in by connecting it to the computer using the USB cable, then you turn it on, if it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something with the unit.

Hope this advice was useful to you.

While plugged in, my Garmin c530 will shut down immediately after it says "loading maps". Why is this?

Won't turn on


If your garmin wont turn on, then you need to carry out some tests on the device.
The problem is that the battery is not charged. Try to charge your battery by connecting it to your computer using the USB cable, then power it on.
If it does not come on, then the battery is bad and need to be replaced, before replacing it, test your charger on another nuvi to see if it will work, then test another battery in your nuvi to see if it will come on.
After carrying out the test, you would have detected the faulty component and solve the problem.

Hi left my garmin gps 265 plugged in my car for 2 weeks it doesnt light up anymore whats the problem can yu let me know plz


If your garmin nuvi does not turn on, then you need to carry out some test. First is for you to test the battery by trying it out on another nuvi, to do that, insert the battery in another nuvi, charge it for about 2 hours, then try to power it on. If it comes on, then the battery is alright, but if it does not come on, then, it is obvious that the battery is bad and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Another test is for you to test the charger. Try to use the charger on another gps, if it charges, then it is okay, but if it does not, then the charger is bad and need no be replaced.
After carrying out the test and both the charger and the battery seem to be okay, connect your nuvi to your computer to see if it comes on and charges. If it does not come on, then there is an internal problem or something.

Tom tom wont switch on. tried charging it. still not coming on.


Good day sir/madam There are most likely 2 sources of such problems, the battery or the charger. Test the battery on another device, but before you turn it on, charge it for about 2 hours on the device before powering on, if it turns on, then the battery is okay, but if it does not turn on the other device,then you have to replace the battery.
Test the charger on another device to see if it will charge it, if it charges, then the charger is okay, but if it does not, then the charger is bad and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Other components to test is the charging port, to test the charging port, try a well tested charger and battery on the nuvi, if it does not seem to charge, then the charging port is bad and need to be replaced.
By the time you carry out these activities, you would have been able to detect the exact problem and solve it at the same time.
Hope this helps.
