Please provide brand and model name of your GPS device, without you will receive generic advice only.

Some devices, e.g. by Tomtom, do not really switch off when you think they do, they go to stand-by mode, requiring less power but still enough to drain the battery. The upside is, when you need the device for driving, the start-up is considerably more swift than on a cold reboot.

Instructions on how to really switch off the device depends on brand and model. Some Tomtom devices switch off by pressing and holding the on/off switch until you hear the Tomtom drum sound (~15 seconds). They will show a diagnostic screen first and by another short tap on the on / off switch shuts down the device completely. You will know you've done it right if on next switch on you have a progress bar with a hard drive icon displayed.

The battery may be failing. This often is the case where a battery only charges partially no how many times charging is tried.

Hello i have a mp4 media player, my problem is that no turn on the batery is ok when i put the select in ON the media player no turn on i try to connect in to the pc but no conected to can you help me


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your problem is that your MP4 player will not come on, even when you connect it to your PC? Well, you should try recharging your battery. There are two ways you can charge this device using your USB cable. The first way is by connecting the USB cable to your PC. Charging will take 8 hours by this method. The second way is connecting the USB cable to the wall charger that was supplied with your media player. If you had a problem connecting to your PC, you should try charging via the wall charger. Charging is much faster this way than using a computer. If charging doesn't turn your device back on, your battery may be defective. If that's the case, you'll need to get the battery or your media player replaced. Hope it's just a recharge that's needed. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Come back and visit our site again whenever you need assistance!
