Question about Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Battery charge cord

The cord that plugs into the car battery receptacle will not work properly. When first plugged into the car receptacle the green light comes on for a few seconds then goes out and will not power or charge the GPS. It has worked fine since we have had it, but just suddenly stopped working. I checked the fuse and it is OK. Do you know what could be the problem?
Thanks, Ron

Take a look at the plastic fitting where the cable goes into the GPS. Ours broke which caused the same problem. Easier to buy another one used on ebay than try to get it fixed. Magellan started off as a great company with a fantastic product but I think the competition has eclipsed them. Too bad really.

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways


Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

Have not used my Garmin since January 2011. Sitting on shelf. Plugged in to my car charger and would not turn on. Would this mean it needs charged?


After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.

I have a Gateway T-6330u notebook. I have had problems with the battery cord before where it plugs into the computer. A piece broke off from the battery cord and was stuck in the computer. I talked with...


Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

Laptop battery is not charging


Hi, this information represents a basic troubleshooting guideline. Refer to your user guide for specific charging and connection instructions. Manuals may be available online in the Support Web site of HP.

Remove the battery from the computer.
Confirm the battery contacts are free of any foreign material that may prevent charging.
Reinsert the battery into the computer.
Verify that the AC adapter cord is properly connected and plugged directly into a known working AC power outlet.

NOTE: If the battery charges correctly when the AC adapter is plugged directly into an AC power outlet, but not when plugged into a power strip or surge protector, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the computer battery or AC adapter.

Verify the correct AC adapter is being used.
Ensure the AC adapter box power light is on. This will be an illuminated green light.
If the AC adapter power light is not on, the AC adapter and power cord will need to be replaced.
Verify the charging indicator is illuminated on the computer.
If the issue still exists, install a different compatible HP battery, if available.

NOTE: If a replacement battery charges and operates correctly, the problem is with the first battery.

If neither the original nor a replacement battery charges, service may be required for the computer.

Battery won't charge on my ryobi 14.4v cordless drill yellow and green lights stay on


I had the same problem and found a solution on another forum...
Plug the battery into the charger. The yellow and green lights come on. Leave the battery plugged into the charger. Plug and unplug the charger power cord from it's power source a few times until the the red charger light comes on..... problem solved!

I think the "smart" circuit in the charger that is supposed to trickle charge before the regular charge cycle needs at least some battery power to test and start the cycle. If the battery is totally discharged, the test can't deternine the battery status and will not charge.... Plugging and unplugging the charger seems to bypass this teat and charge the battery normally. The charging process should work normally after this method.

Strange ac cord/power issues


Hello my friend, Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing


my suggestion is that you allow the batteries to fully recharge(which only happens when the computer is fully off, when the battery is deep discharged.

that will take around 6 to 10 hours each..

DO NOT continue to try to charge that battery. The company recalled those batteries because they explode or start on fire. Do a google search of "mintek" and you can read about the recall.

What is a receptacle?


When you plug something into a conventional duplex receptacle (the type that receives two appliance plugs), and the device doesn't work, trouble shooting the problem is fairly simple. For large receptacles that run on 220 to 240 volts, such as ranges and dryers and air conditioners, call an electrician unless you're well-versed in electrical repairs and safety issues. Always check when installing if the appliance is rated from 15 to 50 amps, 240 volts, and 20 to 50 amps, 120/240 volts. They have two hot wires (red and black) and a separate grounding wire. Receptacle basics Conventional duplex receptacles have two places to plug in electrical cords or devices. Each of those two places includes one narrow slot, one wide slot, and a semicircular hole. The narrow slot is the "hot" side, connected to the black wire of the electrical system. The wide slot is the "neutral" side, connected to the white wire. And the semicircular hole is the ground, connected to a bare or green wire or the electrical system's ground. Many electrical plugs have one wide blade and one narrow blade (and, in some cases, a ground plug) that match the receptacle's slots to insure that the circuit is properly connected to the electrical device. Wires may be attached to screws on each side of the receptacle or plugged into terminal holes in the back of the receptacle. Whether wires attached to screw terminals or are pushed into rear-mount terminals, the screw terminals on the sides of the receptacle are hot (charged) so don't touch them!
