Before you remove the board and send it to me, be sure
to run your set FROM DEAD COLD one last time for under
a minute, just to check that it’s working OK. Do NOT
give your set time to warm up!

Once you have confirmed that it has a solid, normal,
coherent picture, while it's still on, unplug it and
proceed to removing the board. When you get the board
back and plug it back in, the set will turn itself on
automatically, so be sure everything is back in place
before plugging the wall cord back into the 120v
outlet. This allows you to keep watch FROM THE BACK as
the set powers up again for the first time after the
board resolder repair.

With the unit unplugged, follow the power cord, from
the 120v outlet at the wall. It goes directly to that
board. Do NOT remove the slanted plastic back, up
above. Your optics could get permanently damaged.
Just the fiberboard plate, on the LOWER half of the
set, in the back.

Pull all the conn'rs off the board at all points before
removing the board, which comes off with just 1 screw
holding the entire metal frame to the rear wall of the
set. Do NOT disturb the wiring bundling. It will be
needed when you re-install the board, to make sure all
plugs go into their proper jacks. 2 sets of 4 prong
plugs are ID to each other and can't get mixed up as
long as you leave the factory bundling of the wiring
harnesses intact and undisturbed.

Leave the board on that frame, I will remove the small
screws all around it once it has arrived. Pull upward
on it and it will come off its slots for you. Use big
bubble wrap on it, in packing it. Don’t tape that
wrap, just leave it dangling, and PLEASE don’t use
styrofoam popcorn! It gets all over the place.
Crumpled up paper works just fine.

I charge $275 to resolder a board, you take care of the
shipping both ways. Send me a money order/cashier's
check for $275 made out to Robert Jones plus a fully
made out prepaid return shipping tag, made out to you
with all your preferences - insurance level, speediness
of the return freight, etc. - preselected. If you want
to use, my account is
my regular email address below, and please send in $285
instead, to cover what they charge me to do so.
Prepare a prepaid return label and include it with the
board, for me to use when sending the board back to
you. Fedex leaves the box for me and there has never
been a problem – I live in a good neighborhood – so
avoid “signature required” if possible, if you want it
back the fastest way possible. How you send it IS 100%
your responsibility, however, in all cases, so make the
right choices for yourself.

Use UPS or Fedex ONLY, and if you use Fedex, feel free
to make it for "MORNING by 10:30am" delivery only, to
me. DON'T USE ECONOMY Fedex, they would make me wait
all day and I would never get it, as I work out of my
home but am usually not home in the afternoons, having
repair and calibration work and all. Wednesday
morning I am not at home after 10:15am, but other days
I am usually home all morning.

I try for 48 hour turnaround, but will only promise a 2
week's turnaround, as my schedule often has surprises
in it as the days progress. I usually get repaired
boards out in a couple of days, yesterday I was
actually able to do one same day as it arrived, I take
it down for shipping today…

Contact me directly for where to ship it, and I'll send you the address.

Nuvi 710 will not start up and is stuck on the Garmin page. I have tried the reset procedure - thumb on lower right hand corner of the screen etc. etc. but nothing happens. Any suggestions?

This is a rare glitch ive come across with some different Garmin GPS's. I just had to send it out to Garmin by calling them up at 1-800-800-1020 tell them your problem, give them the serial number on the GPS i believe is on the bottom or back of the GPS. They will give you all the information needed to get your Nuvi sent to them and have them repair/ replace the faulty unit. The whole process took me about 2-3 days from sending it out to getting my replacement.

if you need more information:

OK, now that we have decided that my problem on my S-10 is the oil pressure sending unit. Could someone please tell me where it is. LOL. Yes, I guess i am an idiot... Is it like looking for a 710 cap? LOL.

You didn't tell us what year or engine you have so I can't tell you where the sending unit is. Put your vehicle information in at and look up the oil pressure sending unit. Once it displays the results, look to the right and it might have a repair guide listed and it will show you, for free, the location of the sending unit. My guess is you need a new I D ten T switch.

Pioneer Elite 710 rear projection set

If your Elite 510/610/710 - and the earlier 520/620/720s - works fine when you turn it on but starts to go hinky on its reliability once it has warmed up, you still have a shot at getting that sit remedied for a very nominal fee - or nothing, if you know what you're doing and are an electronics professional. Those models were improperly soldered at the factory on their PS boards. Those PS boards took years to go bad, but now that the constant barrage of expansion and contraction of the too-thin solder joints has started its inexorable journey towards taking down your set, the clock is ticking. You don't have much time.

One thing is very important, and I can't stress it enough: STOP USING YOUR SET NOW. Things could get much worse if you do. That means NOW, even if you are watching it right now. A deadly spike caused by the bad solder joints currently on that power supply board could be getting ready to be produced by a connection that is getting ready to separate as we speak, and that spike could take out one or more of the boards downline. One guy who called me had kept using his set for months with these intermittents happening, and eventually both the convergence and the deflection boards went out, both in an instant. The set would not turn on again, and built-in indicators on the circuitry showed 3 boards now needed attention. With 3 boards to now have to deal with, he decided not to get his set repaired at all, due to the now tripled expense. His set was now totalled. It tears my heart out when one of these fine machines goes down for the count because of misuse - continued use when it's obviously hurt - and is then DNR'd by its owner. That all could have been avoided by taking action promptly rather than continuing to tempt fate, on his part.

Send me an email requesting it, and I'll send you back an emailout on how to remove it, what it costs, how to wrap it and send it, where to send it, etc. I can't divulge certain aspects of all this on the net here, must keep some of it close to the vest. Will be glad to tell you personally, by email or on the phone.

I will tell you this much - I charge $275 for the resoldering op, you pay the shipping both ways. That's less than it costs to get a replacement board from Pio and have a local Pio warranty station install it.

Keeping the same board in your set rather than replacing it is the way to go, IMHO. That way the voltages it was set up with originally, stay the same. If you get a replacement board, those voltages can be very different, affecting the precision of settings downline. Voltage regulation only has to fall within certain parameters, so different PS boards will produce different sets of voltages. The PS board and your set are now a matched pair. The best way to retain your precision in downline sets of settings, is to keep your original board in the set, the one your set was originally set up at the factory with.

To find the PS board, follow the power cord from the wall. It will lead you right to it. Use the big bubble-wrap to send it rather than the small stuff, and box it in an oversized box for the journey.

Passward protected

If this is a bios password, then no. The password is embedded in the security chip on the motherboard. These chips are designed so that if you try to remove them without the specialized equipment, they ruin the board, I've tried. IBM can't even get around this password, and when you send it in, they replace the chip. It's cheaper to replace the motherboard than it is to have the chip replaced, considerably cheaper.

Now, if this is a Windows password, then you can either start the machine in safe mode, log in as administrator, and clear any passwords from the user accounts section in the control panel, or you can perform a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Cannot delete pre programmed speed dial number

Reset the memory from the display panel. Or have a tech remove the main board from the machine and let it sit. Some times data gets stuck in logic circuits, and normal operation of the machine cannot remove it. You either replace the board or kill all power to it the install it back it the machine. If problem returns there is probably damage to circuits. Use ESD protection and electrical safety precautions or send to shop
