Hi, have a shoprider TE-889XL. Unit has new batteries and has had both the speed and throttle potentiometer replaced over the last 3 years to cure erratic throttle. Now with fully charged batteries it...

On older units this is a fairly common issue with loose, burned contacts at the battery terminal, battery harness plugs and circuit breaker. Check, clean and lube all the power connectors with a petroleum jelly. Don't use WD-40. Then retighten the connectors.
Another issue may be a bad key switch. Intermittent contacts can often be detected by wiggling the key when it starts acting up.

Wont charge tell me to insert sony battery


If Your battery wont charge instead it is requesting for You to enter a sony battery, then there is a problem somewhere that need to be checked. It is either the battery is bad and require You to replace it or the charger is not working fine or probably the phones connection port is bad. You need to run a test on the 3 before you can tell which is the problem. First run a test on the battery. To test the battery please follow the steps below:

  1. Turn off Your phone,
  2. Remove the battery,
  3. Insert it in another phone,
  4. Turn it on to see if it will ask you to insert a sony battery, if it does then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced, but if it does not, then it means it is You phone that is not recognizing the battery,
To test the phone,
  1. Insert in another battery into Your phone,
  2. Power it on,
  3. Check if it will request for You to enter a sony battery, if it does, then it means the phone is faulty and the connection port is bad, but if it accepts the battery, then it means the phone is alright.
Finally, test the charger,
  1. Try to use it on another phone to see if it will charge,
  2. if it charges, then it means the charger is alright, but if it does not charge, then it means the phone is alright,
That way after carrying out the tests, you must have detected the problem and solved the problem.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Wont' stay on and wont' charge


If your telephone wont stay on and wont charge, then you need to carry out some test to know where the fault is from. First, test your battery if it is working by inserting it in another phone then charging it for about 3 hours then power on the phone to see if it will come on, if it does, then it means the battery is alright. But if it does not come on, then you know the battery is bad and needs to be replaced.

Now test the phone by inserting a well tested battery inside the phone then power it on, if it comes on, then the phone is alright, but if it does not come up, try to prop the battery so it will connect tightly with the terminal of the phone, then power it on, if it comes on, then it means the battery was loose and just need some propping, but if it still does not come on, then there is a problem with the phones power panel.

Test the charger also, by trying to charge another phone with it to see if it will work, if it charges, then it means the charger is alright and if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

After carying out these tests, you will be able to tell which component is faulty and needs replacement.

Take care and good luck

Te battery will not hold a charge.

Batteries in your shaver model were not designed for replacement. Disassembling the shaver will result in damage to the case as it is glued together. has a simple and inexpensive solution of replacing the 'lower unit'. See link below

My c330 turns on but ten goes off in about 10 to 15 bseconds. It says low battery. I ave two cargers for it and neiter seems to be carging te unit. Is it possible tat this is due to te extreme cold weater...

Are you trying to charge the unit in the car, on the computer, or both? If you are trying both methods, it is possible that you may need a new battery. First, try resetting the unit though. Remove the faceplate, and find the reset button on the right side of the unit. Press this, and see if you can use the unit on the charger.

My garmin won't charge

Hello there:
There are a couple of reasons that these units do not charge the first is pretty obvious is to check the power cord tjo ensure that it is working properly.
Next remove the power cord and then remove the battery
now get a qtip and some rubbing alcohol and clean all the areas that the battery contacts and the battery it'self and inspect the terminals that the battery connects to and see if there is any visible damage.
now check te place where the power cord is plugged into the unit and see if the part is loose if so i t will need to be repaired ok once all of this has been done
put the battery back in the device nad plug it in and try to turn it on and see if it will now charge.
If not then you wil have to have the unit service because of a faulty part on the mainboard for the gps ok?
Hope this has been very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael
