Try Raising the antenna and then press the reset button when the C330 is on,this should restore the garmin, then: Make sure the C330 is fully charged and
I would try updating the C330 by connecting to to a usb port on your computer and then downloading Garmin Communicator. If that does not help then try contacting Garmin. I will attach a link to Garmin customer support. thanks for using FixYa

The unit will not turn on, even when plugged into a power source. Unit was working fine a week ago. Garmin Streetpilot C330.


Have you checked the fuses in the power cable? There is a reset button under the front bezel. Try pressing that to see if your unit comes back to life too.

Garmin won't turn on


I hope this helps, I had the same thing happen today. I noticed on the face under the word Garmin you can pop the face off and underneath on the right side is a reset button I held it down for 10 seconds popped the face back on and pressed the power button it came on. I hope this works for you.

My streetpilot c330 won"t shut off.


IT'S CALLED A FROZEN SCREEN...

2 OPTIONS

ONE, RESET IT !!! (See resetting instructions below)

TWO, let the battery die out!

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Display image has shifted, difficult to use


ok, first you will have to unplug the power and usb cables to remove external power. Secondly, place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate and gently pull off the face plate. Next, press the reset button for three seconds. Finally, connect the c330 to a power source using the power cable. the c330 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.

Please rate my response and have a wonderful nite.

Failure to acquire satellite


To reset the unit, pry off the silver faceplate.
Turn the unit on using the power button on the right side.
Press the reset button that was hidden behind the face plate.
The GPS unit should restart, and display its software version.
Make a note of the software version in case you have to call customer service.
To acquire satellites make sure the GPS has a clear view of the sky.

For Garmin customer service, call 800-800-1020.
