Question about Magellan GPS

My unit just shuts off and will not turn on again until I plug it in as if to recharge the battery. I checked the battery when I first turned it on and it said the battery was fully charged.

Hi there!

It probably does need a battery replacement.

Even though it may show fully charged, and even test as fully charged, it may no longer have the capacity to deliver it for any sustained period.

If you think of a comparison between a 12V car battery, and a 12V alarm battery. Both show full charge, and the same output voltage, the difference is the available plate area. This is reduced due to degredation, and will no longer provide the same output.

Hope this helps.

If you want to make the battery last longer, charge for the recommended time (as was the first charge), then run the battery right down before charging.

If this solves the issue, Please rate as Fixya! thanks.

I have a Craig jukebox Bluetooth model CHT935BT-BLS..after turning on it plays music for 15 minutes than shuts off,I power it back on than it shuts off again


Sounds like its either low on power or the memory in it is to full to operate. To check the power issue does the unit run on built in batteries that need charged or is it a fixed ac power unit that plugs into the wall? If it plugs into the wall ensure the plug os securly connected both to the unit and inyo the wall receptacle too. If its a built in re-chargeable unit plug your charger into it for at least 6 hours and then try using the unit again if it doesnt shut down this time it was a low battery; however if it still shuts down try removing 3 -4 of the longer or bigger music files from it and then try using it again and see if it shuts down. Hopefully this will help somehow.

While mowing along my blades stopped turning. i shut the pto off and tried again. i noticed the battery light comes on when i turn the pto on. i let the machine cool off and tried again. the pto turns on...


Did it work right after you changed battery? It sounds like your regulator/rectifier isn't recharging your battery. When the battery isn't charging properly the pto wont work for long. If you have a multimeter, hook it up to battery while unit is running and check voltage on battery. When idle is high you should see more charge and vice versa. Please exercise caution when doing this. Hope this helps.

Shure P2R body packs keep shutting off on their own in middle of show. Have to turn switch off and then back on to get them working again. Very tedious during a performance.


If the switches are being bumped off that would be obvious. Less obvious is that some people try to run these on rechargeable batteries... That is NO-NO as the voltage of the rechargeables is lower and after a short time the rechargeables degrade and will act as you are seeing. Use ONLY ALKALINE batteries. Another problem MIGHT be the battery connections are marginal and vibration breaks the contact momentarily causing unit to go off and stay off. Battery clips are a pain in these units.

PALM WILL NOT TURN OFF


Hold the power button until it shuts off. Holding the power button down for a long time constitutes a "hard shutdown" and most of todays gadgets do shut down by actions such as this.

If not, then wait until it dies then recharge it. If you don't want to wait, carefully take out the batteries then put them back in. After you turn it on again it should be fine.

My MPC t2300 laptop wom't turn on.


The Transport T2300 has an internal battery that will run the laptop for several minutes after the main battery goes dead. This feature allows you to save your work and shut down safely. If you run the laptop until both batteries are dead, even a brand new battery can't start the unit again. You have to follow this procedure:
1.Unplug power cord

2. Remove any attached periphal components including the cd rom and/or floppy disk module if you have one. Both remove with a push button switch located on the bottom of the unit.

3. Plug in power cord and charge the unit for a minimum of 24 hours straight. 30 hours is better. This whole time will be spent slowly recharging the internal back up battery.

4. Once that is done, unplug power cord again and reinstall any floppy/cd drives. Plug power cord back in now and charge for at least 24 hours again.

If your backup battery is dead, you can't charge the main battery or turn the unit on. The longer you charge, the better. We had one unit here that had to be on the initial battery backup for 72 hours before it finally took hold. Then, one overnight recharge on the regular battery and all was well.
If you need drivers or manuals for the 2300, all are available on cd at mpcsupport@cox.net for around $9.50 including shipping, handling, and owners manual

Garmin 478 powers up then 3-5minutes powers down then i will turn on again then will turn off again


Hello mrbill254,

The rechargeable battery in your GPS receiver may be going bad. Over the lifetime of the battery the amount of operating time you can expect in between charges will naturally decrease until the battery gets to a point where it is no longer able to power the unit. That may be what is happening.

Unfortunately most GPS batteries are not considered to be user replaceable. You should contact Garmin to find out about battery replacement service.

Best Regards!
Ken

Battery will not take charge from wall unit


Remove the battery for several minutes, replace the battery and plug the wall socket in, leave it for several hours. The battery is probably too dead to do anything, and recharges very slowly. If this doesn't work, try a replacement battery, before you send the unit in for repairs.
