New Fitbit blaze fully charged will not work when in watch screen only comes on when on charge


How to Charge Fitbit Blaze: Step-By-Step
  • Plug in the charging cable into the USB port of your computer.
  • Find the tracker from the wristband. To do so, impulse the screen slightly so that it removes from the frame.
  • Place the tracker inside the charging cradle with the screen in front of you and the four gold prongs associated.
  • Adjacent the cradle cover.
  • Watch for a large battery icon that acts momentarily on display to let you know that charging has in progress. It gives a hint of how low your battery is to start, and a small battery icon persists in the top left corner while charging so you can check progress. When the green battery icon is fulfilled, then your Fitbit Blaze is fully charged.

It is totally dead and will not charge.


Had same issue... this worked for me:
1. Snap into charger base & plug into wall. Screen still blank. 2. Press Lap/reset, Mode, & Power buttons all three at the same time & hold for 3 seconds - unit will reset. Hopefully then you'll get the 'charging in progress' message.
(also make sure copper points/connectors on unit and charger base are clean).

Poor gps reception-are you inside a building


A few resons that a GPS will give this message. The first is just like it says.. are u in a concrete canyon expecting satellite connection?

The other is insufficient charge to the battery, it should be fully charged via the AC adaptor or the USB connection on the Laptop. Depending on age and number of recharges it may be that the battery is soggy and needs replacing. Only you, know that information.

Also a warning do not plug it into catr power and then start the engine, you will damage the IC chip and then it will never work again until you throw lots of money at it.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Hi All, I replaced the battery of my Garmin with an iPod battery. When I place the watch on the charging station the watch displays "charging" for 3-4 seconds but then displays "Charging process...


Since you used an Ipod battery instead of a Garmin compatible one, I would guess to say that it is not quite compatible. Even within the Ipod family, notwithstanding the physical limitations, the battery are not usually compatible because of variations some of which I would describe below:
- Battery has two wire and the regulator is on the device itself.
- Battery has two wires and has an inbuilt regulator (small circuit board fitted to the battery).
- Battery has three wires of which one is used by the device to control the charging
- Battery has three wires and inbuilt regulator (small circuit board fitted to the battery) of which one is used by the device as status indicator.

Hope it helps you do your own diagnostics but be very careful especially if the rechargeable Lithium battery is bulging as they do explode when not charged correctly! NEVER PIERCE A BULGING LI BATTERY!

My tomtom lost signal today it has not come back.the model i have is tomtom one 125. the blue arrow is not on the correct street.my tomtom is only 6 month old


I am tempted! yes here goes Your signal wont come back, your signal wont come back ( Old Tune of my boomerang wont come back)

It probably wont if the battery is flat , so first try charging bthe battery before turning to map programming. If that doesn't work then expect the worst.... you have damaged the SIIRF chip which is the chip that contacts the satellites
Very expensive to reapair cheaper to buy a new GPS generally
tomtom are notorious for this problem, but most times its caused by user abuse of overcharging or starting the car with the GPS plugged to DC spikes are common even though they dont blow the fuse in the charger plug. Even Mobile phones should be plugged after the engine is started. none of the GPS Distributors othert than one wilkl tell you of this money spinner. Next time aroumd you may want to consider an ALTINA see Marbella Australia and also read their FAQ on caring for your GPS

The unit does not switch on nor does it show battery charging in progress when attatched to the charger unit


The device may just be locked up and needs to be reset so that it can start up normally. To do a reset on the device, make sure the unit is plugged in to the charging cable/cradle and connected to power. Next press and hold the Mode + Reset buttons at the same time for approximately 10 seconds. After releasing the Mode + Reset buttons, attempt to power the device on normally.
