Have you tried firmware update for your gps .
If you have not tried it try to update the latest firmware .
By updating firmware your problem can be fixed .

If your problem still exists then try to charge your gps from any external charger and check whether screen is working properly .

If your problem still continues then you need to take your gps to near by shop to get it repaired .

Hello i think your graphic card is dead.
Try to renew it.

Here is a list of beep codes:

It sounds like one long and 8 short beeps.
This means that the graphic card is failing.

Good luck

I have a garmin street pilot c530 after i power it up and agree to the disclaimer the screen reads as follows no deailed maps found that support routing street pilot cannot be used without them the unit...


I just purchased my c530 a couple of days ago and had been loving it. I had added some custom POI's to my sd card using POI loader version 2.4.0 and that had worked fine. Then the other day I tried to load some new custom POI's, but POI loader got hung up and froze. After disconnecting the c530, I restarted it. After it started, a screen came up that said "No detailed maps found that support routing. The Streetpilot cannot be used without them." I contacted garmin, here is the site for contact info since I am unsure where you are. http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontactand the tech support at Garmin. They said that somehow the files on my c530 must have gotten corrupted. The person I talked to at Garmin was very friendly and walked me through several things trying to get my unit to work. He was very apologetic and said that this should not have happened. He told me I would have to return it and get a replacement. Sorry Hope this helped.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Blank screen - appears to be dead


If the screen is completely black, your screen may indeed be dead. There are a few solutions you can try before throwing in the towel though.

1) Test the monitor on another PC if you can.
2) Make sure the contrast, and brightness aren't turned all the way down.
3) Make sure the graphics card in your PC is functional. You can easily test this by connecting a known working monitor to your computer.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, and your graphics card is in good working order, you indeed have a dead monitor on your hands. It may be cheaper to buy a new monitor, than to have that one serviced.

Touch screen doesnt work all the time


Hi,
Pop the face off to reset it, could sort it for you.
Press the power button for over 1 minute to calibrate the screen
and use the Garmin Web-updater to update the software.

Should be good then
Regards
Richard.

Will not turn on


I've just experienced the same issue. I spoke with a Garmin tech about this and explained that I had also tried using the reset button, several different outlets, and the USB cable. The tech seemed very familiar with this issue and immediately recommended that I download the most recent software update from their website, then leave the unit unplugged for 24 - 48 hours to fully discharge the battery. He claimed that the unit was actually on, but a software glitch prevented both the reset and power buttons from functioning and also prevented anything from being displayed on the screen. He suggested that once the battery has completely drained, it will power up again when plugged into the USB port of your computer. The software update is said to help prevent the problem from recurring. I am still waiting for the battery to discharge so I have been unable to get this fix to work for myself yet.

Garmin c530 won't turn on


Have a c530 I purchased 11/2006. In 12/2006 had 3 instances where I shut unit off and it would not turn on. Garmin had me do resets which did nothing. Had to leave unit to discharge for 3 days, then plugged in USB and it powered up and was fine (for a week or so). They gave me a new unit and at the same time a system software upgrade was available. The c530 was perfect through all of 2007. Then in Jan 2008, the same failures occurred 3 times. I discharged it 3 times and it now works, but for how long? My advice is to get anoher model. I have 5, c330's for over a year and they have had 100% reliability. l

According to technical support, the "glitch" has been fixed with the latest web updater on the Garmin site. In the meantime, you will need to leave the unit unplugged for upto 48 hours to allow the battery die and the unit to get out of its "hang up". Once the battery is completely dead, plug the GPS into a computer (USB) and it should come back to life. Then do the update.

Hope this helps.
