    Unfortunately the 305 appears to be glued shut. There are no screws visible and my attempts to pry it open have failed. The warranty is sadly only good for 12 months and I have had my 305 for longer than that.

    I have the same probelm as this. Has ANYONE been able to open one of these devices with out damaging it.



    I've had my Edge 305 for a couple of years now, and it's taken a couple of knocks. Recently it's become almost unuseable,it will just shut down every few minutes when I'm riding.



    I can feel/hear something loose inside and am pretty sure if I could get in that I could at least identify the probelm and who knows maybe even fix it.

IF the receiver is still covered by the warranty perioid, get it repaired or replaced by garmin or your dealer.

I have not had one of these in my hands and i haven't taken one apart, but it can't be too difficult.

Where is the CMOS battery on the HP G60-235DX? How do I remove it? Also, what type (model #) of CMOS battery does this laptop have?


Shut down your laptop and disconnect all power sources. Turn the laptop over and lay it face down.

Remove the screws that secure the hard drive cover and remove the cover. Take out the remaining screws that secure the hard drive to remove it.

Locate the RAM (random access memory) and wireless card cover. This is often located in the center of the laptop. Remove the retaining screws and take off the cover.

Remove the RAM module by spreading the retaining latches on each side. Tilt the RAM module at an angle and slide it out of its compartment.

Disconnect the cables from the wireless card and remove the screws that secure the wireless card to the motherboard. Remove the wireless card from the laptop.

Locate the CMOS battery. It is about the size of a coin and is secured by a clip. Unclip the CMOS battery and remove it from its compartment. Insert the new one and reassemble the laptop.

Here's a link to a video that shows you how to do it too. http://www.ehow.com/video_4984398_change-laptop-battery.html Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate.

Aiwa receiver won't turn on


Hello:

This looks like its displaying the Time format. Try disconnecting all speaker one a time and turning on the unit to see if it turns off. Disconnect one speaker at a time and turn the unit on. If it turns off with only one speaker conn then this speaker is your problem. Amps will shut down if a speaker goes bad. Another thing to try is disconnecting all inputs and speakers from the unit and see if it stays on. Then reconnect them one at a time while watching what the unit does during power up. Also you might want to open the device and check for blown fuses. Check for any speaker terminal wires touching each other if so it will shut down thinking there is a short.

Receiver powers on then shuts down. Any mode (CD AUX,VIDEO,etc) will cause same result. Sometimes FM mode will keep receiver on for longer. Once speakers are connceted, shut down happens no matter which...


If it's not happening when your speakers are disconnected, your problem is not in the receiver, it's either a wire touching at the terminals on the rear of the receiver, or a bad voice coil or crossover in your speaker. If you re connect the speakers and it immediately cuts out, disconnect all speakers and reconnect one by one testing the receiver each time until your receiver shuts off or remains on with all wires connected and you've fixed the problem. If it cuts out, disconnect the problem speaker at the speaker and test again. If it stays on, problem is in the speaker, if it still cuts out, problem is in the wire. Hope this helps. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

New Home, existing system, no information on what current access code is


Powering down for several hours should reset the code to 1234.

To power down, find where it plugs into the wall. It'll be a big plug, about the size of your fist ( a three-inch, block style plug), black, white or beige in color, probably a little screw holding it in. It may be directly below the panel or could be in the room on the other side of the wall of the panel. Otherwise, it may be in a garage, basement or attic. It may be in a weird place, like behind a couch in the living room or on the ceiling in the garage. Good luck finding it!

Next, disconnect the back up battery. This can be tricky because it's really easy to break the little tab that holds the compartment shut. With the cover open, look at the top of the panel or the sides/corners. CAREFULLY push the tab, open the cover and disconnect the battery.

Leave it powered down for 24 hours and then plug in the battery first, then plug it into the wall. The code should (hopefully) be 1234 now.

Edge 305 shuts off during a short 1 hour ride


I have the same problem. When I contacted Garmin they quickly diagnosed that my battery disconnects as a result of vibrations (like the ones you feel on your handlebars). Since I purchased this device over a year ago, their solution was for me to send it to them and pay $100 to get it fixed. Now one of the guys I ride with is having the same problem. I am very disatisfied with the Garmin 305's reliability. I'm not giving Garmin any more cash. (I paid $350 for this GPS 18 months ago!)

Does anyone know how to open the 305 so I can resecure the battery?

Receiver Shutoff


That may be a clue to your shutdown problem. Disconnect that speaker and see if the unit still shuts down. If it does not, then there is a problem with this speaker,or the wiring going to this speaker. If the unit still shuts down, disconnect each speaker at a time to see where the problem is. If none of the speakers seem to cause the shutdown problem, there is na major fauly in the amp circuit, so the amp will need serviceing or replacement. Good Luck
