My son plugged my 12v iPhone car charger into my BlueParrot B350 XT headset and now it doesn't appear to be able to charge with the BlueParrot 12v charger.

Plug the charger into the wall outlet and test the output at the pins with a meter. If readings are correct, have the B350 checked out. 12 volt is 12 volt, and should not have caused any problem with another 12 volt unit. Your thoughts may be misplaced here.

Do you know where I could find a user guide manual for a NEXXTECH Ni-Cd/Ni-MH 2300033 battery charger?

Radio Shack 230-0033 appears to be the same charger.

I have this charger (Nexxtech branded, model 2300033) and the specs all appear to line up. However, I don't have the manual.

Have a Motorola 2 way walkie talkies but misplaced the manual on how to operate the unit. Bought these at Canadain Tire about 5 yrs. ago. Not sure if 1XTN4004B or CH600 is the model number. Please advise...

Haven't been able to locate a user guide for the multi-unit charger. However, it is pretty much plug-in-n-play. It can charge a battery inside a radio, or also accommodate a battery alone in each of 6 cups. As for replacement parts, they are not available, and you cannot purchase the multi-unit tray separate from the power supply. This is a slow rate charger and would take 10 hours to charge your batteries (or overnight). Radios/batteries should only be placed on the charger when nearly depleted. (Consider your charge a place your radios go to bed overnight.)

If you are having difficulty with charging, clean your battery contacts on the exterior of the radio and inside the charger cups with a pencil eraser.

This tray can act as a radio cloning station. See page 23 about cloning in the XTN radio user guide:

Best regards.

I have misplaced my battery charger for my durabrand portable dvd player and do not know which charger can replace it.

Ebay will have replacement chargers. Log in the model and make with ac adapter and there will be a host to choose from.
Hope that helps.

I have a pd360 Type 2 3.6 Volt Pivot screw driver and I don't know how to charge it? I've misplaced my paper work for the tool. Can you help me?

Usually, the battery is removed from the tool and inserted into the charger base. Hopefully, the charger has not disappeared also. Good luck!

1996 Jetta stops runing. I waite a while and it will restart until the next time. I replaced mas air flow sensor with new one. Now it will not start at all.

Just a thought, but I had a 1994 Jetta, and after having the timing belt and transmission replaced I had a similar issue. Whenever I would go anywhere and turn the car off it would not restart for a while. Turned out that the garage that did the work forgot to replace the heat shield somewhere around the transmission and the car kept thinking it was overheated. I took it back and had them put a new one in, since the misplaced the old one ( the reason they failed to put it back in in the first place).
If you have had anysort of engine work like that you may want to ask someone. I had taken it to several places asking about the problem, took a VW dealer to see the problem and they spotted it instantly.
Not sure if this will help, but thought I would throw it out there.

Not working

Hi , Its likely you have a faulty charger putting too much voltage out , or , your car cigarette charger socket is dirty or similar causing intermittent supply and resulting in voltage spikes going through the charger and into the TomTom .... or ... spikes caused when starting your car whilst the charger is plugged in. The tomtoms are very sensitive to any overvoltage and it blows 2 IC's inside the TomTom. The car chargers are also known to put out overvoltage when they go faulty , it's quite common. Some car alternators dont regulate their voltage very well at the point of starting the engine so it's probably worth having this checked by an auto electrician. Cranking the engine cna also cause the starter motor to act like a generator just at the point where the engine fires and this then results in a voltage comming back out of the starter motor and into the cars wiring. Your TomTom charger should cope with this but it is possible that any spikes manage to get past the charger and into the tomtom. if you have had one TomTom blow using any particualr charger unit , then don't risk using that charger on a different TomTom uless you have that charger checked for correct voltage.
Good luck.

For the guest comment .............. The Blue Tooth will not have caused the problem you are reporting , thats just a coincidence. The problems of having buttons highlight themselves and the touch screen not working properly is a fault with the membrain on the tomtom screen . Could be a fault on the membrain or just dust and dirt particles trapped under and around edge of the screen bezel ( plastic screen surround ). Try clipping out the bezel and see if theres any dirt around edges of screen . If there is , be careful how you clean that dirt / dust out. ... Good luck
