Batteries leaked. Will not operate. Who can repair?


I also have one that will not turn on, with either internal or external power. Would you be interested in selling the unit? Maybe between the two us, I could get one of them working?

Batteries will not power unit


Check If the batteries are fresh and in the right way Always a chance of one not in there right or dirty contacts If they are then if the unit runs on the charger this indicates a hardware problem and you will need to send it in to Garmin for repair or refurbishment. They usually have a set fee that covers every thing. You may get your unit back or a diferant one if they can't repair it.

My Garmin MAP 295 won't power up. Third time in 5 years.


I have discovered an intermittent problem on my 10 year old 295 when powered by batteries.
It appears that the chrome plating is de-laminating from the battery contacts that are either side of the back panel attachment hole. At first glance it looks perfect but if you run a fingernail or other small item across the face of the contact you will see and hear a movement as if there a a loose layer of foil over it. This is causing all manner of faults including 'external power lost, shut-down in 30 seconds' when the external power was not even connected at all!

Will not run for more than a few moments off battery power


Watch out for that - if you use regular batteries, they probably won't like that. They're not designed for recharging. The GPSMap 295 can batteries and external power at the same time because it has circuitry that switches between the two - power is not being sent through the batteries.

This guy - http://www.fixya.com/support/t2487552-garmin_gpsmap_295_will_not_run_from - opened his up and found a loose screw. I have the same problem with mine which I'm about to try. This may help you as well.

Garmin gpsmap 295 will not run from internal battery power


I had the same problem. Reluctantly, I removed the batteries and the 8 phillips screws from the the case back perimeter. Be careful on opening. The unit is designed to open from the top and hinge at he bottom to keep the ribbon cables from being stressed. The unit should open nicely and lie flat on the table with the two bottom halves butted against each other. Get a magnifier and ensure the printed circuit board attached to the bottom half has all 3 screws. (I found one missing that has 2 functions - securing the board and delivering battery power. Mine had wedged against a piece of clear plastic...it was hard to find!!!) I carefully removed the wedged screw and returned to the circuit board left most attach point. Close up the unit and we were back in GPS heaven. Battery power restored!!!! and my $250.00 still in my pocket. Yipppeee.

Display dims when connected to external power


mine had same problem. If I switched it off and then back on using the switch at left upper edge the screen would then come on at normal brightness. Mine later developed other problems (freezing up) and I have since returned it for replacement.

Garmin gps 296


If it does not show 'charging' when connected to power, then something may be wrong with the power cord. If it is the vehicle cord (the one with the cigarette lighter plug) check the fuse in the tip of the cord.
