Hit your reset button, then try powrering it ON again. If that doesn't work, the ON/OFF switch is defective and the unit will need to be returned to Garmin for repair. It will probably be cheaper to find a new/used one on CraigsList.

Where's your reset button? Look in the manual; it's listed. Where's your manual? Download a PDF copy at Garmin's website.

Try pressing and HOLDING the power button for up to 15 seconds (or until it powers up - whichever happens first). This is a "hard reset" and should be done whenever the GPS stops acting as expected / locks up / won't turn on / etc..

Nuvi was working and then went black and now won't turn on.


First try pressing the reset button under the antenna (raise the antenna first) if that has no result thentry holding your finger on the upper right corner of the nuvi's screen while turning on the nuvi. Keep your finger pressed until the popup window appears. Touch Yes to clear all user data. All original settings are restored.Your recent selections and audible bookmarks are also deleted.

We have similar problem

Please ensure that the device is receiving a charge while it is connected to the vehicle power cable. If the battery is receiving power from the vehicle power cable then the battery icon (located next to the time) would disappear from the Main Menu. clip_image001.jpg clip_image002.jpg
If the unit does not power on while attached to the vehicle power cable please follow steps from below to perform a soft reset:
  1. Connect the device to an external power source1
  2. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
The device should power on. Notes:
  1. Preferably the vehicle power cable or a USB cable from a computer
  2. Some of the older Nuvi 200 series will have a reset button on the bottom of the device. It can be found on the bottom of the device on the same sticker that the serial number is printed on.

Garmin nuvi 200 frozen screen


with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.
