Re: Help garmin nuvi question
Does the same thing happen when you use the AC adapter?
If yes, I suspect you may have to carefully look at the printed circuit board under magnification to see if you lifted a trace from the USB input into the unit? Also possible is dislodging one of those tiny, tiny, tiny components, or inadvertantly getting a spec of solder bridging a circuit board trace.
You have to look at both sides of the printed circuit board.
And yes u should be getting audio thru the speaker if you used a normally closed jack; insert the plug and it closes the circuit to the jack while it open the circuit to the speaker.
I seem to remember 15 watt or so suggested for tiny, tiny, tiny SMC work.
