Hi neloamaicai


The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Try to take battery out and then insert it back again, if the problem its still there then replace it with a new battery. i had a similar problem in the past.

Ndrive g800r battery charging


Li-ion battery packs in laptops have a circuit board that prevents overcharging. Unfortunately it also keeps count of the number of times the battery pack has been through a charge/discharge cycle and eventhough the batteries maybe still be good; IT keeps batteries from accepting a full charge and and that is why they will not keep a charge for as long as they did when new. Also if any battery in the pack goes bad it effects the whole pack because of the way they are assembled.

Tip

Keep NiMh batteries fully charged?


NiMh batteries lose charge quickly after a 15 minute charge. Keep the batteries in the charger so that trickle charge keeps the float voltage up to maintain fully charged state until you have to use the batteries.

As you your battery life of your notebook ? The main problem with laptops is often the battery , after a year of heavy use loses almost 50 % of the power . How can I prevent that ? Have you could keep a...


I have some tips to keep your laptop battery live longer
1.don't undercharging and overcharging,laptops battery can reach 100 degress Fahrenheit and such heat can damage your battery. slowly but sure
2.ideally,you should try to keep your battery charged from 20 percent to 80 percent. i know it's inconvenient to unplug the charger before it reach 100 percent,but try to keep it charged near 80 percent
3.try to charge your battery constanly,and unplug it when you think its almost fully charged,overcharged can heat your battery and damage it
4.keep your laptop as cool as possible,don't try to charge the battery when the computer is turned on,even if the battery is going to 0 and you still need to use it,just shut down the laptop first and charge it,at least until the battery is charged 20%,unplug the charger and turn it on

Well,there are many other tips to keep your battery alive,but i only have those 4,thanks for using fixya
and good luck with the tree-planting project,i love environment very much

Why doesn't my 02 Honda cbr keep charge.


You could load test the battery ,to see if its good ,if it is good or new,it may be your stator,or charging system.You could check the voltage of the battery while its running to see if its charging. I found ,they dont like not being started,or sitting for awhile. Ive installed a battery tender ,that keeps my battery fully charged even if you let the bike sit for extended periods of time. Its a very low amp charging system ,then turns itself on and off,to keep your battery fully charged. Sometimes there called Float chargers too.

I HAVE A IBM THINK PAD MODEL T 42 AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING LOW BATTERY AND I KEEP IT PLUGED IN AND THE BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE


Normal 0 If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Battery keeps going flat after 10 mins driving


I would suspect that the problem is with the charging system not charging the battery, as opposed to the battery being bad.

Uniden wireless phone


As with all batteries, Topping them up by keeping them on charge is very bad for the cells, whats best is a good charge and then a good discharge, looks like you need a new battery - Uniden cordless batteries
