Turns itself off and then won't stay on

Do the self check.

If you unplugged the set, plug it back, turn it on and allow to fail.

Press both the Menu and Input (input may be labeled device) buttons on the front of the set and Hold both for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will begin to blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

Let me know what error you find and I tell you the meaning and a possible answer.

Garmin forerunner 205 will not stay OFF and none of the buttons respond.

Yes you can restore your data from the TC after a hard reset. You have to go thtrough the setup menu like chose which language etc first.
Well I have exactly the same problem as you and a hard reset did not work either ...
Upgrading / downgrading the firmware also did not work.... the thing keeps on switching itself on regardless....
Do you have found out something more in the mean time?

When I turn on TV, it immediately turns itself off. Previously if I continued to turn it on it would eventually stay on, but now it will not stay on.

I had this problem with my JVC TV. Turns out that some gunk had built up in and around the power button itself. I took a toothpick and a cotton swab with alcohol and cleaned around and between the the power button. Hope it works for you too.

Where can i download the software to use the webcam function for a vivicam 3780s camera?

Nowhere. The ViviCam was designed to store images and videos to a memory card (or internal memory), not to stream them live to an external device. It's a camera, not a web cam.
