Battery needed for Archos 504

I've purchased two batteries from MegaCapacity and they are worthless because the batteries are actually installed backwards in the back casing. I've returned them and am still having issues getting credit and reimbursement for shipping. MegaCapacity hasn't been very caring or understanding. I guess that is what you get when you buy something that is made in China these days. Any idea where to get a good deal on a replacement 504 battery?

Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

SOURCE: My Archos 504 will not power up.

Press the Reset button on the inside of the unit with the battery removed. This should solve the Problem. If not you may need to send it in.

Reset button is located under the battery. So remove the battery and loo for the button at the end of the archos where the battery pins make contact. To the right of those and half way down between the pins and the case of the hard drive will be a gold round looking circuit. this is the reset. Press it and off you go.

Amcor 3990 GPS navigation device screen backwards

If your screen is actually installed backwards take it back and exchange it for new one, but if the screen is not actually installed backwards then go into the settings screen on the gps unit and find the orientation section, this will change the display to something a little more readable to you. And as a side note some of these things look like they should be straight up and down but they actually designed to work sideways, gives you a wider view and the manufacturer a little more screen room to put more information onto the screen.

Check to be certain that you didn't install the battery backwards. (This will cause this exact problem). I have seen a case where the BIOS chip was faulty and actually lost its internal charge, resulting in no BIOS. This is rare. I still think the battery is backwards.

Garmin nuvi 765 lithium battery will not hold a charge more than 15 minutes!

This is kind of a late response, but this post may help other people. I had the same issue and was ready to have Garmin exchange my battery until I called them today and spoke to Tech support. They helped me upgrade the firmware on the unit (didnt take long) and so far the problem has been resolved. I have had it on for two hours without fully charging it, which is better than before when it only stayed on for about 20 minutes. I recommend that people with this issue call them first since it appears to be a common issue with this model nuvi.

Non starting Jota

32 amp brand new its been on charge for about 18 hours Acid for battery was put in by a dealer all electric functions working except the starter when the starter button is pushed there is a click and I can feel movment in a solonoid in front and just above the battery (in an ally case) all nuts to starter motor removed cleaned and re tightened Fuses checked (I can only find 2) these fuses are located behind the left side of the battery in a little black cover are perhaps there more fuses which are relavent to the starter the bike is in my workshop and I cant really get a go at jumping it on my own. I did try jumping when I thought it was the battery but it wouldnt go. I thought it was due to NO charge in the battery. Try a single jump lead from the +'ve on the battery direct to the starter motor. A screwdriver across to 2 solonoid connections does the same thing but is harder to control. You need to be careful as if there is an internal short in the starter motor you can run the risk of serious burns from very large fault currents flowing. Next is the poxy short battery negative to crank case...replace with a longer one to the actual starter motor 8m/m mounting bolt ( closest 8m/m to the barrel is more neat ). Less hazerdous is to get a cheap mumtimeter and measure the voltage across the starter motor when you press the starter button some times it is just a dirty segment on the starter motor remove plugs from cylinders, load the HT leads with removed plugs, rest against engine and engage top gear. Press the starter and rotate back wheel slightly backwards ( rocking motion ) going backwards engages the jaming roller clutch to move the starter off the dirty segment if present,,,

How do i replace the battery on a garmin streetpoilot c330?

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers
