Hi check under your battery if the sticker is white or pinkish

it sounds like a sort of water damage occured

if NOT, then its a board issue - it will be about 60-80$ to replace

No. This camera requires service/repairs, the repairs will be more than this model camera is worth !!!!

All windows and sunroof stopped working. They worked before I hooked up a battery charger/starter to it. I thought I saw some smoke coming from under passenger dash. Any ideas on how I can get them all...

Check the relays. There just under the driving wheel inside a closed box. Just take off the box and you should see about 7 relays. The big one in the far right corner controls the delay mechanism for your windows #4. What I discovered is theys relays can get really hot and just stop working. No wonder why my windows stopped working when the inside of the car got hot.

If there really hot, then try replacing them and see if that helps.
But first make sure you find the relay that controls the power windows.

These relays are designed for delay response, like our head lights or your power windows so they can still function after you've taken your key out of the ignition.

Camera wont come on battery gets really hot

if it is a digical if so the batteries have to be rechargeable and be over 1000 because the rest just arnt good enough . because of the technolgy in the camara , and because of what it can do do . the batteries have to be the best . their will be more power comeing out of the camara and excceds the battereis. its like a mobile phone , the phone is a 16 volt batteri and you plug a 5 voult charger in the phone . it gets realy hot because their is insufficaint charger for the volt . we wiill have almost blew the charge on the batteris aswell as the connection on the camara or ie [phone]. leave for 24 hours and then try the rechargeable energizer 2000 plus is one of the best .replace the old for new and try the enegizers

I have a 1992 gmc serria 1500. Some times it does not start. if i wait awhile and go back to it then it will start up right away. when it does not start the power turns on and does not even try to turn...

Assuming you've got a clean and tight connection to the battery, there's a good possibility that the starter is bad. A bad starter will occasionally work when cold but once it heats up, it requires more power to get it to engage. If when it's hot, everything else is working, ie headlights bright, accessories like power windows work, then it would certainly sound like a starter problem. Most with these symptoms end up changing out batteries, alternators, only to find out that a few days later, the problem returns and you've already spent a few hundred dollars. If you like, you can take the truck to 1 of the auto parts chains that offers free electrical diagnostic tests. This would confirm your battery and alternator are fine prior to making any major repairs.

Battery smokes gets very hot

Dose this happen with all batterys or just one battery . If its one the battery is no good. If this all batterys you try to use then there is a short in the motor in the gun likely in the windings and it was defective when you bought it. check your warranty

Battery is dead, should it still power up if plugged in?

It will only power up after the battery has some charge in it.

If your battery is bad, it wont power on at all no matter how long you have it plugged in.

I have a motorola v3xx cell phone that will not power on or charge. I charged the battery in a different phone, but it still would not power on. The phone has not been wet, nor been dropped. What is...

Sound like your phone is done for.
But try this first.
Remove the battery, remove the simm card. Wait 10 minutes.
I can assume the battery is good (as that's the #1 reasons for phone problems) Unless you can test the battery with a meter or use the battery in an identical phone don't assume its good.
Then replace the simm, put tha battery back in and give it a try.
Doesn't power up.?? Head on over to the phone store of your choice. Good luck.

try to remove the battery on your mobile and press and hold the power button for 10 secs. try to put in the battery. try to power it on. if it doesn't work try to ask your friends if they have an identical phone as what you have, try to borrow their battery. if it works then you need to replace the battery on your mobile.
