    Garmin nuvi 780 does not turn on.



    help?

  • stephaniemh Mar 04, 2009

    I have the same problem. I got my Garmin for Christmas 2008 and by Jan 3rd, 2009, it didn't turn on, but I figured it wasn't charged full and it turned on about 15 minutes later. It did it again in February and now as of a couple days ago, my Garmin will not turn on at all. Today is March 04, 2009.

Turn the on button at the top of the device o by pushing it to the left and hold in that position for at least 20 seconds. The device will reset and turn on. This has worked several times for me when the 780 has refused to turn on.

I have the nuvi 205w, and plugged it in to a charger, held the power button and it came on. Unplugged it from the charger, and attempted to turn it on again, without success, although it showed to have a full charge after I turned it on the first time. Held down the power button for about 20-30 seconds, and calibration came on, and it's worked fine since.

My Garmin nuvi CAN310 has the same problem turning on. Try pressing the reset button the on bottom of the unit. It's hard to see, but it is under the label on the right side. Make sure you are disconnected from a external power source. Then connect to power a source.

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
