Tom tom troubleshooting


Your GPS will "freeze" (i.e. stop and shut down) if / when the battery level is low on the TomTom. If you have plugged it in a power source to charge it and the battery indicator shows that it is fully charged ... and then, when you unplug it from the power source, it freezes after a short period of time, it is likely that the battery will no longer hold a good charge.
If it does that while the TomTom is plugged into a power source, it indicates that the battery does not hold a charge anymore.
If this is the case, you may wish to get the battery changed (at an authorized TomTom service center, or do it yourself ... after getting the appropriate replacement battery and the tools/kit, and instructions). Just remember to follow the (initial) charging instructions (after you get a new battery) ... to ensure that the battery will hold a good charge for a long time.
Or junk it and get a new TomTom.

Why my pc presario x1000 power and lamp lights blink and the batteries can not be on my pc


I fix these laptops as a side business and sell refurbished ones on ebay...I've seen the problem you describe but I'd need to know more about how fast they are blinking, etc. When all the lights flash about 2-3 times per second, I've found it to be a motherboard issue normally caused by a faulty power jack. That can be fixed but it means disassembling the complete laptop down to the motherboard and either re-soldering or replacing the jack. If you have access to a charged battery, disconnect the AC adapter and try to get it to boot cleanly from the battery. This will tell you if the problem is at the jack or someplace else. Post your results and we'll go from here.

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?


It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!


If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

I'm a novice at using a multi-meter but want to check my volkswagon beatle for a short, one circuit at a time. After battery is charged up, it goes dead after a few weeks. Worse in colder temperatures....


you would be measuring current
you would set the meter to maximum current setting
Then place the leads between the terminals of the fuse for each circuit. with the fuse removed.
so if you have a ten amp fuse you would expect a current either below 10Amp or at 10 amp.
maximum setting of current is in case short circuit to ground causes a huge current drain. To prevent blowing up amp meter of multimeter.
You may wish to put a fuse on the lead of the multimeter to safe guard your meter from blowing up in case you encounter a high current it can't handle.
if via the battery disconnect one lead and put a fused meter lead on the battery and the other lead on the battery cable. look for current drain while car switched off.

S032 won't fly higher than 0.5m. and for a few secondes. I bought 2 Syma S032 helicopters whith 3 lipo's. The first 3 a 4 times both choppers flow verywell. I have charged the batterie's so as told in the...


1) Ensure you're fully charging. Indicator light on charging unit should NOT get brighter at all when you unplug the helicopter. If it does, then plug helicopter back into charger until light stays the same when you unplug. Note: If you're charging with a usb charger and are using a laptop or the front side data port on your desktop, these may take several hours to fully charge as they are usb 2.0 and do not carry the full 5 volt dc charge. Use powered usb (3.0) on back of desktop, or get a usb/ac adapter. Normal charge time approximately 1 hour. Go by the light, though.
2) Don't run them dead. As soon as you can no longer maintain altitude, land and turn off helicopter. Fully discharging a Li/Po battery (particularly when it's new) will cripple it's ability to hold a charge, and can ruin them.

hope this helps

Green light on but will not switch on


plug in your xl via the usb cable to your computer and let it charge a few hours, then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

do not use the car or home charger to intially charge your xl. they are to maintain the battery, not a rapid charge.

let me know if you need further help.
