    I just got the new garmin 760. it worked when I first time turned it on. Connected to PC through USB port for registration. Asked me to upload updated software, but it never let me through. Gave up the registration process but still kept it connected to PC for charging. After about four hours, the screen went black, and it just can not be turned on any more.

    I have the exact same problem. It's totally dead and I am totally disapointed. I have the Nuvi 750.

  • friendi89 Jan 17, 2009

    I just received my brand new Nuvi 750, and I could not turn it on even though I hold the power switch for 30 seconds.

    I was charging my 750 nuvi on the bench with jumpers to a 12v power supply and after disconnecting it would not turn on.



    After holding the power button to the left for about 15 seconds then attempting to turn on the unit it worked fine. It must have had a power spike or something that caused it to require a reset. Problem solved thanks to others on the net.

Hold the off button (to the left) for 10 seconds... the system will restart and your garmin should work fine!

Holding the switch does not always work. The problem is that the Garmin batteries wear out very quickly and if you don't charge them every few days they drain completely and the voltage drops to zero. The problem is the brilliant Garmin engineers designed the Nuvi 700s so that the charging circuit doesn't activate when you plug it in if the battery voltage is zero. See the Catch 22? Also, even if you replace the battery, if the new battery is not already charged, you are in the same boat! I solved it by taking the Nuvi apart and zapping the battery with 5 volts across the red and black terminals. It's very difficult because the plug has tiny holes smaller than a typical pin. You have to be very careful too because the lithium polymer battery could catch on fire or explode! I used a very low current to lessen the chance of this. After doing this for about a minute and raising the battery voltage to about 3 volts, I plugged it back in, put it back together, and it was able to charge.

Nuvi 750 wont turn on even when i hold the on button for a minute or more


Looks like the in-built rechargable battery is fully discharged. Try charging it for good amount of time like more than an hour through Car or computer charger. Keep the unit off to maximize charging.

User's manual available at www.garmin.com. Select "support", then "Manuals". Enter "mobile electronics"+"automotive"+"model #". Manual says that selecting a language with a person's name will speak street names.

Garmin 750 - 90 days old


Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.
