How to Fix GPS Garmin GPSMAP64ST

I Have a new Garmin GPS Model GPSMAP64ST.

Sometimes when I change batteries the GPs doesnt works,

No turns on.its a big error for Garmin.

I have had to open it, take off the 8 screws at the back side with torch screw driver #7 and you can find that tha cover have a press contacts to translate the batteries voltage.It makes a False contact.If you make to make more pressure,its the same,again the same false contact.

Finaly I opened the GPS, soldered the possitive and negative contacts and now Its OK.

Fast and clean turning ON! see the Photos enclosed

I would read the owner manual first and then remove the batteries for a while and put back. This does not use recharge able batteries?
