Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
We got a garmin nuvi 255 2 months ago. It worked fine until today when we turned it on and all it displayed was the Garmin name and a small blue triangle. The menu screen never comes up. We tried the reset button and nothing.
to soft reset & keep data....
Slide power key to on/off, hold it for 8/10 seconds
Update from Garmin, use the web-updater. keep it updated, delete old junk and POIs.
Hold lower corner of screen, while turning on, keep pressing, when "clear all data appears" click yes,
sould resolve the problem
Hope this helps.

If you unplug the unit and remove the battery
i would check the fuse inside the unit to be sure that it is ok if it is than
leave it unplugged and the batttery out for 30 min and if there is a reset button on this after the battery is removed hold in the reset in for 2 minutes then after the 30 min replace the battery and plug in the unit and try it again his should be enough time for the internal reset to reset it'self than just replace the battery and if this still oes not help remove the battery again and leave it sit for 1 hour to let the internal reset device reset it'self ok and you should be good to go
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Michael

Have you tried doing a hard reset,try using the reset button on the bottom of the gps under the serial label.Or try holding the turn off button for about 10 seconds,good luck.

SOURCE: how to change language on a 255?
On the very first screen after the GPS boots there will be an icon of a wrench at the bottom right of the screen. Press that Icon and scroll through the menu and you will find a language setting.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Testimonial: "Thank you! Merry Christmas!"
If the touch screen is working well,then you only need to buy the LCD sreen,but usually suppliers will send the LCD with touch screen as they are one whole part.you can try to contact :
firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about it.

You can get that FREE at Garmin here:
To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.
By the way, the correct Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!!
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
