The larger Garmins require considerable power to charge and many non standard USB chargers will not supply enough power and respond with "use the cable supplied with the unit"

I own a Garmin also, my suggestion is plug it in to your computer, leave your computer on so it can charge up overnight. If in the morning it wont power on my suggestion would be to contact Garmin you may have a bad battery or some other internal problem. Garmins web site is Contact there Tech department to see what they would charge you to check out your unit. It has to be cheaper than buying a new one.

I hope this helps you out if so leave me some feedback.

My thermostat says the heat is on and its set to auto but the furnace wont turn on we've reset circuit breakers turned the unit off and on checked the filter but it wont turn heat on.

Look for this. 24 volt transformer. Thermostat sends 24v to the unit in order to tell the unit to turn on. The transformer is probably bad or isnt getting power and the unit isn't getting the "turn on signal"
Get a test meter and touch the two screws. If it's not getting voltage, check the 120v wiring to it and make sure it's getting 120v. If it's getting 120v at the wiring but not 24v at the screws then the transformer is bad. Easy to change and common part. Home depot or Lowes for about $35

Power button keeps blinking dvd player wont turn on

the disc or mechanism may be jammed and the unit knows this, someone (most shops do this) needs to open the unit and safely cycle the disc out of the unit---many times with this done the unit will suddenly work again.

If not and it is not a expensive unit you have the disc back and time to go shopping as most of these are throw away units.

Circut breaker turned off then turned on dryer wont turn back on (kenmore serial #86982800)

i ve seen this in the field alot of times make sure you actually are getting full 220 to unit.. sometimes these dang breakers look like they are on but they fail to send full power back to unit... it is even happened to me in the field i go to turn power off to a customers unit and when i am ready to turn back on the breaker wont fully reset... check it out if it was working prior to the bresker turned off and you didn't operate on the dryer disconnecting or replacing anything this is your problem...

Xbox wont turn on its pluged in and getting power to the unite but wont turn on

What color is lit on the power unit? Is it red, yellow, or green? Are you using a wireless controller to turn it on or the actual button on the XBOX? If you're using the wireless, make sure it's plugged in to the unit and controller. If not, replace batteries in controller and see if that works. If still nothing make sure you have a good connection between the power unit and the XBOX.

Their is power in the fuse and in the power line but unit wont start is their an internal fuse or am i missing something

Hello paul543,

First check all the fuses. The primary and any onboard fuses.

Then, in addition to the power wire, check the ground and make sure that there is +12V on the remote turn-on terminal when the head unit is turned on.

Hope this helps

Wont power up optoma movie time

it's probably not this: Try using the remote to turn it on. I cleaned out mine a while ago and the controls on the main unit stopped working. Only way to turn it on now (for me) is the remote.
