I have mio s600 and during the travel the car charger has stopped working, so the navigation automatically started to use it's one battery. After I pulled out the charger, and sticked it in again,


If you are using the lighter plug for charging it may have a fuse inside the plug itself the plugs into the lighter socket,,,,,look for a fuse there or if have a volt meter check for voltage reaching the unit when plugged that way If voltage is good to the unit from the car source the battery may be bad, either not getting a voltage for charging or battery not holding a charge.

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

Bike has a new stater/flywheel and voltage regulator\r\nbut the charge hand will still go from charging to discharging constantly


You need to check the charging system. To do this you need to fully charge the battery and you'll need a good Digital Volt Ohm Meter. Using the meter's function selector switch, set it to DC VOLTS with a range of 20 volts or greater. Connect the red meter lead to the positive battery post and the black meter lead to the negative battery post. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. After about a minute or so, your meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. Any lower than 14 volts, your battery will not be charged.

If you don't have the minimum voltage at the battery in the previous test, you need to check the
alternator to see if it's generating sufficient voltage. You'll have to follow the wires from your voltage regulator going to the lower left front of your engine until you come to a plug. Unplug the plug and look into the engine side of it. You'll see two metal contacts in the rubber plug. This is where you are going to test the voltage from your alternator. Since you'll be testing AC voltage, it makes no difference which meter lead goes into which contact, just one lead into each contact. Set your meter's function selector switch to AC VOLTS with a 50 volt or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert one meter lead into each of the metal contacts. Do not let the leads touch each other or the engine case or ground. Your meter should read at least 25 volts.

If you do not have the 25 volts from the alternator, your stator is bad and must be replaced. If you have 25 volts or more but not the 14 volt minimum at the battery, your voltage regulator is probably bad. Make sure you voltage regulator is properly grounded. Check the condition of the wire coming from the regulator going to the battery. This wire is usually larger in diameter than the other two going to the alternator.

Battery will not hold charge.


Not a lot of information there. How old is the battery? The first thing I'd do is have the battery "load tested". Just because a volt meter tells you that it has 12.3 volts doesn't mean it'll start your bike. The meter is designed not to put a load on the circuit being tested. Your bike starter puts a tremendous load on the battery. Most any automotive parts store will test the battery for free.

Here's how to check the charging system. To do this you need to fully charge the battery and you'll need a good Digital Volt Ohm Meter. Using the meter's function selector switch, set it to DC VOLTS with a range of 20 volts or greater. Connect the red meter lead to the positive battery post and the black meter lead to the negative battery post. Start the
engine and bring it to a high idle. After about a minute or so, your meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. Any lower than 14 volts, your battery will not be charged.

Won't charge battery need info on charging system to repair


Ok, you need to charge the battery in your bike to full charge and you'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Connect the meter to the battery with the red lead going to the positive post and the black meter lead going to the negative post. Put the meter's function selector switch in "DC VOLTS" 50 volt range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Within a minute or so, the meter should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts. If it does, your charging system is fine. If not, proceed to the alternator test.

Follow the two wires from the voltage regulator on the front of the bike until you find the plug where it plugs into the lead coming from the alternator inside the engine case. Unplug this connection and look into the end coming from the engine. There are two pins inside this plug. This is where you're going to check the voltage output of the alternator. Since this voltage is AC, it makes no difference which meter lead goes into which pin, just don't let them touch each other or the engine case while take the measurement. Put the meter's function switch in the "AC VOLTS" 50 volt range position. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert the probes from the meter to the pins from the alternator. You should read at least 25 volts.

If you don't get at least 25 volts, the stator in your bike is bad. If you do get the 25 volts but not the 14.5 volts at the battery in the previous test, the regulator could be bad. Make sure that the regulator is grounded to the frame properly. I like to put a "star type" lockwasher between the regulator and the frame on at least one of the mounting bolts to insure a good ground. I hope this helps.

Sansa won't charge fully


Have you tried any fo the usb mp3 chargers. Check you local discount or department store. You can buy ones that plug into your car or ones that plug into the wall. They have a power supply that connects to a USB connector so you can plug your MP3 player in.

Sansa clip pc charging problem


I'm not sure exactly what the problem is but it sounds like it could be faulty or old battery, they can sometimes stop taking a charge. Are you sure it needs to be charged? some devices detect if they need to be charged and dont allow it to be charged if it is already full.

Sansa won't charge or load.


Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
