Many Garmin GPS units that only get powered by the car charger / cradle suffer from this problem eventually. The fix is pretty simple. You didn't include your model GPS, but I think this may help just the same:
Connect the GPS to a computer's USB port, or AC adapter that has a USB port and leave on for 8 hours (or over night). Disconnect and and turn on again. If you have a Nuvi that has a spring return sliding power switch - slide and hold it in the on position for 15 seconds before letting go. It should power up just fine. You do not need to hold the power switch like this again to turn it on.
If the GPS starts acting like this again, simply repeat the process as often as needed. Eventually, the internal battery will no longer be able to accept a charge and will require replacement.
With the limited information provided, a simple first step is to make sure the internal battery is either fully charged or is in a condition to accept a charge. When the internal battery's charge is allowed to below a certain level, it will no longer be capable of accepting a charge via the car charger.
The battery can be conditioned to accept a charge easily, however. This is done by connecting the GPS to the computer via USB port, NOT the car charger. Some Garmin GPS units come with a 120 volt charger that connects to the USB port of the GPS - this method is also an acceptable charge / condition method. Leave the GPS connected for 8 hours or longer (over night) and try to power up again.
1. Turn the LMS-330 off 2. Press and hold the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR buttons 3. Release the three buttons once you see the "warning, do not rely..." message appear
