My kindle is not charging


Is the device new or still under warranty? Is return to the store (RMA--"Return Merchandise Authorization"--through an online vendor) still possible? Extended warranty?

Is the charger (and outlet) OK? If you may attempt to use USB current from your PC/Laptop/etc., is that port workable and powered? Have you attempted an alternate method of charging? Is syncing then possible?

Chargers are not invulnerable--rarely, they sometimes overheat and die. After all, they're fabricated PRC items too--thus, even they may prove defective. (They're far less complex than a Kindle or phone, though--defective chargers thus prove quite rare.)

Chargers can't last indefinitely or through overly heavy use, either. (Chargers do tend to last longer than devices--failure proves quite rare!) Is the charger unusually hot after plug-in? (Such failure could prove a great danger to electronic devices. Very rarely, even fire or sparking is possible.) Is charger connection at the wall OK? (Is the outlet overloaded?)

Is it a "block" charger?: These may be replaced easily. Just get the connector and the Volts correct--with sufficient amperage (current). You don't need even to obtain the same brand and model as OEM--that which came originally with your charger. Online, amazon, Radio Shack, etc. may prove very helpful for such purposes.

Does the connector have sufficiently good contact through your Kindle's circuitry to its batteries? (Is the connection overly loose? Often, this occurs over time.)

Are you certain that the charging cable is OK? Does the connector in the Kindle need "doctoring" with a small tool, somehow? If the batteries are dead, it's likely possible to replace them.

It's possible that the device simply is dead (shorted-out)--power surge or fluctuation certainly are possible and likely culprits.

An extremely remote possibility is that the CPU or other key chipset is dead--even those prove useful for limited numbers of cycles. (Failure then implies quite extreme usage! Probably not!) It's not immortal!

Does it show a picture of a satnav connected to a computer when plugged into the car charger? Sometimes this happens because the charger plug is not fully pushed into the back of the satnav even though it feels like it is. Pushing it in further may solve the problem.

How long do i charge,does car have to be running to charge?


Charge time depends on brand and model of your GPS. I'd say between two and six hours. For most GPS devices you can just keep the charger connected to the device and only remove it when you park the car in a place where theft is possible. When connected to the charger, the device should be running even if the battery is depleted.

If you connect to a cigarette lighter plug, the car does not need to be running, but the electricity must be switched on, i.e. key inside and turned into first position.

If you have a GPS mounted fixed into the console, there is no generic answer, in most cases, I guess, it is the same as with the cigarette lighter chargers.

The unit should still operate and turn on even with a dead battery when connected to an external power source such as the DC car charger, AC wall charger or USB cable (connected to a PC).

I have a Garmin 760 did not come with a ac


The AC charger plugs into the mini-USB port on the bottom of the unit. The term AC is somewhat misleading as the AC charger plugs into an AC outlet but provides +5VDC to charge the units internal 3.7VDC battery.

You can purchase an OEM AC charger here:

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

Does leaving a cell phone charger plugged in to an outlet at home,without having the phone charging in it,drain energy from your home?


Yes. You are right. Here energy is not the criteria. It is always safe to unplug the charger (when not in use) to prevent the damage of a cell phone due to accidental over load of electricity or short circuits. Moreover Chargers do draw power when plugged in, whether or not a device is actually being charged.
If the charger is plugged in someplace easy to access, like right by where you keep your phone, you should unplug it. But if it would be difficult to have to plug it in every time you need to use it, you'll be fine just leaving it plugged in..and.It still uses energy even when not charging. Any electronic device plugged in a socket uses energy whether it is in use or not.

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
