Be sure the cable that connects to the back of the SkyCaddie is plugged in correctly and that is going straight down the back of the SkyCaddie over the logo. The cable should not be coming out of the top of the device then down, that will cause the error you are getting. If this is NOT the issue or the resolution, then unfortunately, anytime a device reads USB not recognized or malfunctioned, you will need to send the device in for a repair, IT IS an internal issue.

My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Sky caddie will not sync. error reads your SkyCaddie colud not be found.


plug in your connection cable to the back of the skycaddie with the cord going down towards the battery, not up. This should fix the USB recognition issue.

Make sure your cord is plugged into the SkyCaddie with the cord pointing down towards the battery, not going up. It makes sense and it is easier to plug in with the cord going up, but you will eliminate this error if you plug in the cord with the cord going up.

Sg4 problem


This may sound crazy but I had the cable connected incorrectly (I was getting a message that my Sky Caddie SG4 was unrecognized). When connected the cable correctly (to the back of the SG4) the cable wire should be pointing down.

Thats all it took to fix this issue for me.

Cannot get direct connect to work


please check your power y cable cord the comes with the sg3/4 units. they have teeth or tabs on it near the screw and they tend to break if it slips while the person is trying to screw it in. that will cause the unit to not connect no more and they will need to replace it, but please don't use a broken power y cable, it will cause it to slide around and shorten it out. most of the time this occurs after the person had it for awhile or they screw it in too tight and over time that will strip it out and cause it to no longer to screw in...

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device


Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.
