    I had the same problem -- the charger was immediately burnt upon first use. Do you know the electrical specification (input/output) of the charger so I can purchase a replacement?

Broken RoadMate 700

Here are a few tests you can do. Bear in mind if the unit has not been charged for some time and the internal battery is completely flat, you will need to leave the unit on charge for some time even to get a charge light from the LED. Leave it on charge for at least 2 hours. First, check the LED is lit when the cable is plugged in to the cigarette lighter socket and/or mains charger? If it is not, the fuse in the cigarette lighter adapter may be faulty or the charger may not be working. If the fthe LED is lit, then is power available at the end of the cable that connects to your unit? Use your DC voltmeter to check this. If no power is available here, then your cable/charger is faulty - obtain a new one. If there is power at the connector, then the unit may be faulty.

Battery charging does not function

The rechargeable battery is bad or the charger has malfunctioned. Take to a camera shop and have them check it out before you purchase a new battery.

My HP mini 210 does not turn on. The power light is off. Might the battery be bad?

If it does not turn on with the power supply plugged in then its more serious than your battery as laptops do not need the battery in when the power is in.
you may have a fulty power socket or even worse a faulty motherboard.
they can be repaired but it is usualy a technicians work.
see socket repair bottom right here.
if your in the UK, I can repair it for you just email on the contact page of the site.

I was given a Garmin Nuvi 1350 for my birthday about nine months ago ...I still haven't used it. I think my husband forgot to pick up an instruction book. Is it possible to email me one, and also list...

There's a manual available in adobe reader format at
There should have been a car charger with the satnav. It has a plug that goes in the cigarette lighter socket of the car on one end and the other end has a mini USB plug that goes in the back of the satnav. Charging with this charger takes about 4 hours though it can be charged while using the satnav. For the first charge you should leave it on until it's fully charged.

There should also be a mini USB lead with the satnav that can be used to connect it to a computer. Connecting it to a computer also charges it though this method takes about 8 hours.

Mains chargers can be bought seperately from shops which sell garmin satnavs.

Samsung L100 cant figure out how to charge!!! Adaptor supplied but no battery charger to plug in to mains. Do I need to purchase a battery mains charger???

you can charge the battery through the camera like a cellphone.

plug the USB cable to the ADAPTER then plug it to a wall socket then plug the USB cable connected to the AC power adapter to your camera

the USB cable should have an indicator (RED) if it is already charging and (GREEN) when its done

Does leaving a cell phone charger plugged in to an outlet at home,without having the phone charging in it,drain energy from your home?

Yes. You are right. Here energy is not the criteria. It is always safe to unplug the charger (when not in use) to prevent the damage of a cell phone due to accidental over load of electricity or short circuits. Moreover Chargers do draw power when plugged in, whether or not a device is actually being charged.
If the charger is plugged in someplace easy to access, like right by where you keep your phone, you should unplug it. But if it would be difficult to have to plug it in every time you need to use it, you'll be fine just leaving it plugged in..and.It still uses energy even when not charging. Any electronic device plugged in a socket uses energy whether it is in use or not.
