Unauthorized charger I plug in the charger (that I've used for the last year) and it says unauthorized charger or unrecognizable charger. What's up? Already tried a new battery$$$ and unplugging all and checking connections.

Unfortunately the only solution I know is to get the specific charger for the KRZR. The device's firmware is set to measure the impudence on the USB power line (which is slightly different than a "standard" USB power lead and will not charge unless that difference is detected.

One possibility would be to rip-apart your USB charging cable and solder a small resister into the power lead. You will have to play with the resistance in order to find a working combination.

In lieu of wasting much time and possibly money, I suggest to give-in to "big brother" and just buy the special KRZR charger. I hate being held captive as much as anyone, but unfortunately it's sometimes inevidable.

Gps 1412 will not charge


Have you check the voltage output on your power/charger cord? It's easy to test if you know how to use a multi-tester or take it to a small electronics shop like a Radio Shack.

If there is no voltage output from the charger, then simply replace the cord. I have found that those charging cords can break real easily but it's hard to physically see any damage.

Otherwise, if you've already tried a new charger, you may need to send your GPS in for service.

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.

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Motorola Razr phone charger gets message, ''unauthorized charger.


The problem was in the point of connection between the charger cord jack and the cell phone charger receptacle.  By moving the jack within the connection I was able to resume charging.  The connection may have become faulty as a result of heavy usage.

"Unauthorized Charger"


you can try to clean the charger port (but first make sure its not bent, or broken - the pins are really tiny and hard to see, so make sure)
But try cleaning the charge port on the phone and the charger with denatured (rubbing) alcohol, and a toothbrush -

Just make sure not to plug it in when you do this!

and clean both the charger and phone, make sure neither are bent
lastly, try a new charger!
