Why does my tom tom keep going the shut down page every 10 seconds I have pressed reset but makes no difference I ride bmw r1200rt


One possible cause is that your battery is low or the battery can no longer hold a (good) charge. In this case, the TomTom is shutting down because there's not enough battery to keep it running, even though it is plugged into a power source.

To determine if the battery is the cause, try to charge the TomTom battery .... using a (USB) connection to your computer, or a direct power source (i.e. while the TomTom is not being used). Let it charge for a few hours until the batter charge indicator shows that it is fully charged (or just leave it charging overnight).
Then, unplug the TomTom from the "charger" and power it up. If the TomTom (battery) doesn't hold a (good) charge, the device will shut down within a few minutes, e.g. 10 mins or much less.
When you (then) plug the device into a power source, and it doesn't stay on (i.e. it keeps shutting down after 10 seconds), you can safely conclude that the battery is the cause of your problem.

Power schemes battery


Chances are that your battery doesn't / wouldn't hold a charge anymore. The laptop runs off battery power. When it is plugged in, the AC power "goes right through the battery", to support the laptop's operations. When the power cord is unplugged, and the battery doesn't hold a charge, the laptop will shut down, as your battery is (too) low to continue supporting the laptop's operations.

The easiest way around this problem is to get a new battery for the laptop.
If your battery is (quite) new (and a Lithium battery), you may wish to see if you can "revive" the battery's "life" ... first by depleting the battery (completely), then charging it (until it shows it is full, plus a couple more hours), and repeating this process a few times. If you're lucky, the battery will slowly/gradually start to hold some charge, but, don't expect it to be very long.
The (preferred) way to use re-chargeable batteries is to charge it fully, unplug it from the external power source, use it until it is depleted, then plug in the external power source to charge it up (fully) again .... and NOT to keep it on a power source all the time.

The first thing is to check if your battery is still okay by taking it off then measuring if it has some electric charge. If you are able to use a measuring meter then that's super but if you are not able to you can use a 24V truck light bulb and connecting with 2 wires to the positive and negative side of the battery. If it lights up brightly then the battery is okay. If it's got no electric charge then there are two possibilities either the battery is not okay or the charging system of the laptop is not working. Supposing your battery is okay. Then you need to have your laptop checked on the charging system. Remember laptop batteries do not last forever they actually deteriorate to until they are completely unrechargeable. So the Battery is my prime suspect.

I am connecting a 1000w Cobra Power inverter to a deep cycle marine battery that will be used to run small appliances while camping. How do I properly connect the inline circut breaker for maximum safety?


The breaker goes in in series.

So, that means (for example) you remove the hot wire to the unit, from the positive battery power source, and hook this wire to one side of the breaker, then connect the other terminal to the positive battery power source.

This will stop current flow if anything over 40 amps happens on the line.

You actually can hook the breaker anywere along the circuit, but the closer to the power source, the better you are protected.

Do a hard reset by turning off the computer and removing the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Without any power source, press and hold the power button and put everything back after. Power on the computer again, if it does not work, try to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If it shows some display it means that the LCD monitor of your laptop has gone faulty.

I have just purchased a 95 Aura very low in price, none of the windows go down, this is unusual for all of the windows to not work. Is there something that I am missing to repair this


The first thing to check, is the 25amp circuit breaker located in
the fuse block under the back seat near the battery. If that checks out, remove the master switch from the drivers door panel and using a 12v test light or volt meter check for power at
the brown wire connection, grounding the test light to the black
wire connection. If no power, try another ground(door jamb/pillar)
if it's got power now, repair bad grnd. If not, repair bad pwr. feed
or use a different power source. But if there is power to the
switch and it won't work, replace the switch.
Hope this helps.

If the computer will run on battery alone, and you cannot fully charge the battery, it's probably time for a new battery. The life expectancy is 2-3 years if treated right. Some people get a lot more life than others.
Here's a suggestion: when you run your computer, let the battery run fully down at least once a month. Do not leave it plugged in to line power all the time. Do not keep charging it when it is only a little bit discharged.
