Please send me the brand name and actual model number of your GPS. Without it, I can't find its working votage, and can't give you the specification of AC adapter it needs to work. OK.

    Hello --- An [NMEA] type pin must be used to power your GPS. Its pin number-1=Ground/Common. Pin number 2=+(10-35VDC). These two connections should be given to its power I/O. When it is used with an AC adapter this two supply lines only have to be used, antenna and other connections are common for both. You can buy this AC lead from any electronic spare parts selling shops at your town. You must have to go with this GPS for identification and selection of this power In pin. The shop owner can guide you which pins are Pin 1 and 2. If you have its user manual, go to its page number [78] for detailed illustration. If you haven't its manual with you, send your email address to me by FixYa, and I have the manual. i'll send a copy of it to you by return mail.OK.

    Hello -- Billy -- I don't know whether the page numner of internet document and printed document will coincide or not. Anyway, here I can see it on page [78] in my system, an illustration is there as External NMEA Connection port-2 marde to connect with POWER&I/O, ie Power and input/output. In fact, power connection and input output connection to the device is done with same NMEA pin. You can get the NMEA type pin from the electroncs sparepart market. Connections to it should be done by yoursef. All connection digrams are shown there. OK.

I have a 1985 Kawasaki vulcan I put a new stator in rode a couple days now battery wont charge. Try to start and nothing barely a click from starter

Buy a "multimeter" (about $10) and switch it to DC volts.
Fully charge the battery.
Hook leads to the battery (red to positive, black to negative).
Start engine, and check meter.
You should be pulling about 13-14 volts DC.
If not, unplug output wires on the voltage regulator and hook the leads to it.
Start engine, and again, at idle you should be getting about 13-14 volts DC.
If not, unplug alternator (stator and rotor) and hook meter leads to wires, AND SWITCH TO AC VOLTS on the meter.
Start bike, and at idle you should be pulling 15-20 volts or more, with it rising (sometimes drastically) when you rev the engine.
This will tell you if the alternator's bad, or the regulator.
Also, you said you changed the stator, but sometimes the rotor becomes de-magnitized, especially if you've dropped it.

Hey, I have a samsung R60 Plus laptop for a few years now, and its out of warrently and the DC jack power socket has just stopped working. I ordered in a new DC jack for the power socket and soldered out...

When the short happened it caused a feedback in the power supply charger, I would sub out the power supply with a replacement as a first important step to see if the laptop will come back online.

Total Power Failure When Using the AC Adapter

1) Check the AC adapter. Use a multimeter set to DC Voltage, (Symbol is a dotted line over a solid line)

You aren't checking for voltage output, so much, as you are checking for an intermittent break.

AC adapter plugged into power, and probe leads of the multimeter touching the plug of the AC adapter going to the laptop, have an assistant gently wiggle;

1) First the power cord going to the AC adapter.
2) Then the cable from the AC adapter TO the laptop.

If you get an intermittent reading on the multimeter, you have a broken wire in the AC adapter cable, or power cord.

2) If the AC adapter shows VERY close, to the voltage it's supposed to be putting out, AND there is no intermittent break, go to the DC Power Jack.

[ A economical multimeter can be purchased for around $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.

Analog, (Meter with needle), or digital is fine.

Multimeter's vary in style.
It will have a Function knob in the center. This is turned to DC Voltage.
As stated, if just a symbol, it is a dotted line over a solid line.
IF, there is more than one DC Voltage scale, set it to the 0 - 50 Volt scale.

The red probe lead is the Positive lead.
The black probe lead is the Negative probe lead.
You are testing DC Voltage. There is a Positive, and a Negative.

The plug of the AC adapter, that plugs into the DC Power Jack on the laptop, will have a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

Plugs vary. The most common is a plug with a center hole, and a surrounding metal cylindrical shell.

The Center hole is Positive.
The outer cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Need more advice post in a Comment ]

Depending on what laptop we are discussing here, the DC Power Jack can be soldered directly to the motherboard, OR it has a cable attached to it, and the cable plugs into the motherboard.
(DC Power Harness)

IF, it is the solder to the motherboard type, it has prongs, or pins, that come out of the bottom of the DC Power Jack, and goes through the motherboard. Then the prongs, or pins, are soldered to the motherboard.

With this style, if the DC Power Jack is bumped, the solder joints of those pins, may be cracked. Makes a bad contact.

Could also be bad enough to make a Short. (Laptop turns off when AC adapter is plugged in)

The DC Power Jack itself may be in bad repair.
Using as an example of the style that has a Center hole, and a surrounding cylindrical metal shell, (Inside), if the two parts touch, you can have a Short.

The diagnoses is to start with removing ALL power, AC adapter ('Natch), and Battery.
See with a small wooden object, if you can gently wiggle the DC Power Jack.

ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack.
You will also have to partially disassemble the laptop, to check the DC Power Jack solder connections, to the motherboard.

3) DC Power Jack checks out, the problem has gone serious.

Mounted to the laptop motherboard is a power controller chipset.
It is a power MOSFET,

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The power MOSFET is a type of I.C., ]

If you open the laptop, and view the motherboard, this problem will be readily apparent. This chipset usually burns, and turns blackish.

Problem is when it does, the manufacturer's ID numbers are hard to read, in order to obtain a replacement ]

This is one power controller chipset that is used in a LOT of laptops,

This is another one,

Both of these chipsets uses a D2PAK surface mount.
The leads are bent into a J shape. ( J Lead)

The 'foot' of the J lead is soldered to a copper pad on the motherboard.
(Copper Pad has a thin gold plating on it)

Simple de-soldering/soldering techniques, are used to Remove the chipset.
HOWEVER, use a Heatsink on EACH J lead, when soldering the new chipset in.

(The power MOSFET has transistor/s inside )

OR, replace the motherboard.

Acer AspireOne Model ZG5 charger failure. How to test and is output voltage important on replacement.

Test the AC adapter's (Charger) plug with a multimeter set to DC voltage.
(You can buy an economical multimeter for around $10 to $12)

If the DC voltage has different scales to use, advise using the 0 to 50 volt scale.

The center of the plug is Positive.
The outer shell is Negative.

The Positive probe lead (Red) of the multimeter goes to the center of the plug.
The Negative probe lead (Black) goes to the outer shell.

YES, Voltage is absolutely imperative! You can go a little higher with Amperage. (Amp)

I have a Sangean ATS 818cs portable radio but no 6v lead input

Yes you can use any 6 volt DC for your radio but the most IMPORTANT thing to remember is to connect the terminals in the correct direcction. First of all you can solder a red wire from the positve terminal of the battery and a black wire from the negative terminal of the battery. This must be connected to the source of your 6 volt battery.You can buy a good DC jack socket female to be fitted into the vacant spot of your radio and use a male jack to supply the DC. Only be carefully to see the polarity. To avoid any reversing of polarity use can even connect a diode in the forwarrd bias towards the positve terminal. This will prevent any wrong connection of polarity to damage your set. Helpful? Good day
