Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
My c550 was working fine last night and this morning it will not turn on, charge, or give any signs of life. I have tried recharging via the computer and car jack. Nothing will bring it back any suggestions??
Had same exact problem. my unit would come on for a minute and then go black. if you take the silver ring around the face you will see the four screws to take the unit apart if you do have to replace the battery. however first try hitting the reset button on the right side of the unit. remember the cover needs to be off. i hit the reset and my unit powered on with no problems

Check to see that the "tip" of the Garmin Car Charger (the end that plugs into the car's cigarette recepticle) is still there. The "tip" screws into the Garmin Charger and can come out. If it's not there, the Garmin won't charge since it's not making an electrical connection with the car.
A clue that your Garmin charger is not charging properly is to look at the screen display (assuming
you still have battery life). When the Garmin is plugged into the car's cigarette recepticle, the battery icon on the display should disappear. If you see the battery icon on the display, it means the Garmin is using battery power, not the car power.
