Did you try pluggin in the adator and see if it comes on
and if it does not start charging then I would have it checked out at best buy or some other outlet that will.

It is possible that the replacement battery is defective, especially if it won't charge.

My Tom Tom XXL won't turn on when plugged in.


The GPS device runs off the battery ... so, you need to charge the battery (fully, or enough to power the GPS) before you start using it again. For clarity, if the battery is not charged, the GPS will not run when plugged into a power source.

My garmin nuvi 250w wont turn on


Try this: Slide and HOLD the power switch into the ON position for 10 seconds or until it turns on - which ever happens first. This forces a reset / reboot of the GPS. It does NOT delete any data.

If that doesn't work, the battery may be discharged. Recharge by connecting to your computer's USB port with a USB cable, or with the AC adapter (if yours came with one) for 8 hours. Do not use your car's cigar lighter or power point to do this (it won't work). Turn on as normal or failing that, use the slide & hold method detailed above. After starting up with the slide & hold method successfully, subsequent power up operation can be done in the normal manner. You can use the slide & hold method any time the GPS fails to start up normally.

One power up method or the other should allow the GPS to start if the battery still has a useful life. If it does not power up, it is likely that the battery is no longer capable of holding a charge. In this case, you may purchase a battery and attempt to replace it yourself (this is a fairly involved process), or you can contact Garmin Tech Support to arrange for a flat-rate repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My sgx is locked up and won't do anything - won't


Remove the battery and the unit will shut down. Wait 1 minute, install battery and the unit should power up and work as normal.

Won't power up


Is this the first time you have ever tried to turn it on?
Sometimes the battery drains too much, you need to let it plugged into a charger for a little while - at least 20 mins, then try turning it on again.

Has never charged, even after extended time periods - both with car charger and usb. Any tricks I'm missing. I've tried "ejecting" it but it just goes back to showing computer connection....


Sounds like the internal battery won't hold a charge and needs to be replaced. If you're "handy" you could do this yourself, but it's not for the faint of heart, and replacement batteries are available on the Internet. Here's a video that shows the procedure for disassembling and reassembling it to install the replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwAbKYOgiZg

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


The mini-USB jack needs to be either resoldered or replaced. When the jack is loose, you will not be able to charge the internal battery. The jack becomes loose from overuse. The jack needs more mechanical support to the pronted circuit board. I have fixed this problem many times.
