Question about Garmin nuvi 260W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I can't turn my Gamin Nuvi 260W off

The screen giving me the option to turn my Nuvi off will not come up. I have removed the adapter cable and nothing happens. I am just letting the battery run down. There has to be another way.

Garmin 255w i replaced the battery, symptons of charging


Hello
There sill be a battery symbol in the forner of the screen which sill indicate advancing the charging signal [very like battery signal of a cellphone] in green color. You can see it on its manu page. To increase the accuracy of the battery guage, gully discharge the battery and then fully charge it. Do not unplug the Nuvi, until it is totally charged. Connect the vehicle power cable to the mini USB connector on your Nuvi and to a power outlet in your vehicle. The vehicle key may need to be turned ON/ACC for Nuvi to charge.
Connect an AC adapter [optional accessory] to the nuvi and a wall outlet.
Connect your Nuvi to a computer using a USB cable. The computer must be ON for the nuvi to charge. OK.

My Lenovo, G550 turns on every light comes on except the screen the light for the power is on but nothing will get screen on can you help me


Hi eseitz26,

For your G550 issue that no display will show on your screen after turning it on although all the lights are showing there are different reasons why you're getting this issue. The two most common issues are:


(1) The system just needed to be refreshed and reset the BIOS. Don't worry because resetting BIOS is just easy and you can do this on your own. Simply power drain your machine.

Here's how: Shut down your PC >> Remove the battery and unplug AC adapter >> Without any power source press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds (nothing will happen yet) >> Put back the battery and the charger >> Then, turn on your PC.


(2) The LCD cable from your screen going to the motherboard is loosed, that needed to be repaired or defective, and it needs replacement. For this one, you may contact Lenovo to give you options about the repair.

Well, in some rare cases screen might be also defective and needs replacement. You may also take a look on that possibility.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

When i plug my gps in. it goes to the front screen were it tells me not use it while driving or whatever, and then it freezes and wont let me press anything.


if your plugging it in to your computer via the usb cable, its suppose to do that..you cant operate it while connected to the pc, thats for charging and data transfer only...

if its happening while plugged in to your home or car adapter, the adapter is either faulty or not the right one for the 255w.



let me know if you need more help or info

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that 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.

Borrow a USB cable to plug it into a computer. I just had this issue with the nuvi 1300, and that was the only way to fix it.
Holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would attempt to restart it, but it would just get stuck on the "Loading Maps." section.
I was able to fix it by simply plugging it into a PC's USB port, where the unit started up for purposes of data transfer. Then I unplugged it, and it restarted properly.

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..


My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.
