That unit does not have an MP3 player. In order to get that functionality, you would need to purchase a device that does have that functionality.

many problems it could be. Back up your files and do a factory reset.
If that doesn't work, it is probably a h/w issue.

It combines the touch sensor as well. It is not available normally so I would send it to Garmin for repair and whether a gift or not, if under warranty, it is under warranty.

I have a Garmin 255 myself. And what I have found is, MOST of the time, the problem is that the CHARGER CABLE has an intermittent connection in it! So, when the cable moves, flexes, or stretches, the battery charge STOPS, and the (mostly discharged) battery cannot support the load, so the unit blacks out and turns off. Try S-L-O-W-L-Y moving the cable while connected with the unit on, and watch for evidence of a bad cable! Sometimes a DIRTY (trapezoid- shaped) connector will do the same thing!

Do a hard reset on the device. Download Garmin Express and install it to your PC. Connect your device to your PC. Garmin Express will identify it and allow you to install all the maps and software that the device has a subscription to. You either have a corrupt file or a space issue. If it is a space issue, insert an SD card 8gb or less and have Garmin Express install the maps and updates to it.

Very unusual for a Garmin Device.
The screen is faulty so if the store will exchange it great otherwise return it via the links on Garmin's web site for an under warranty replacement.

I have the same model. When I had a problem I called customer service. They linked w/ my computer (nuvi was plugged into it) and fixed the problem! Give it a try. They are very nice.
