Re: dead battery in strret pilot 339

Gently peeling back the silver face plate will reveal a "reset" button, not making any promises as it sounds like you may need a new battery but its defiantly worth a try. You can remove the battery and google it's part number, this will find you third party replacements and even original units for less that Garmin charge.

Hi my gps doesnt turon on.

Diagnosing dead electronic gadgets with no obvious faults is next to impossible without specialist skills and tools.

But from experience and the possible age of your nuvi 265, the most likely cause of your problem is a dead battery. Although rechargeable they don't last forever, so you may just need to change your battery. It's not meant to be user-replaceable, but if you click here you'll see how to do it. Before attempting this repair though, check whether your model is still under warranty and also click here to find out whether your model is one of those subject to a current recall for faulty batteries.

Note that DIY battery replacement is a gamble: you have no way to find out whether the unit or the battery are faulty until you try it unless you decide to send the unit back to Garmin for repair, and doing so rarely makes economic sense (unless under warranty) as the nuvi 265 is still available at low cost new.

Good luck and please take a moment to rate my answer.

GPS Stree Pilot 2820 will not come on when

If the unit is over about a year old or has lived off of the charger most of the time (never using the battery) then your problem is pretty much going to be a dead battery. A replacment battery (3rd party) is $15-$25 and is fairly simple to replace. Most GPS's don't run when the battery dies and you have what appears to be a dead gps.

You can also have a internal hardware issue with the board or charge circuit or a fuse. None of that is something you can typically fix at home. You should check with Garmin to see if you have any warrenty (think is only 1 year on this one) to get it fixed. If not they have a exchange refurbish fee that you send it in no matter how bad it has been mutilated, pay a fee and they send you back a new or refurbished unit. Keep in mind what a new unit is worth when looking at repairs etc as it can get close to what you will pay for a new one.

My bet it still it being just a dead battery.

My garmin 305 don´t turn on

This is not a user-fixable problem as diagnosing a fault on a dead unit requires specialist tools. It may just be that the rechargeable battery has reached the end of it's life, but it's not an easy battery to find as it's unique to Garmin. Your unit has a one year warranty from new (proof of purchase required); if your unit is out of warranty then Garmin have a fixed price repair policy, currently US$79 for your model.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance to you, if so please let me know by taking a moment to rate my answer.

Garmin Street Pilot C550 went dead

Did you try reset button? There's also a 2 amp fuse in the cigarette lighter plug in charger. If it's blown and battery is dead unit won't work.

Can I replace the rechargeable internal battery in my Garmin Pilot 550c unit?

The battery can be replaced. You'll need to take the unit apart and look at the ratings and physical dimensions of the battery. There will be a part number on the battery but it will be specific to the manufacturer of the battery. The rating numbers you are interested in are the mAH and voltage. You'll want to find a battery that has the same voltage and at least the same mAH rating or higher. The higher the mAH rating, the longer the battery will last between recharges. Make sure the new battery will fit inside your GPS. There will probably be a plug on the old battery that was in your unit. The new battery may only have wires. You can splice the old plug on the new battery, just make sure you get the polarity correct.

Good luck!

Battery will not take charge from wall unit

Remove the battery for several minutes, replace the battery and plug the wall socket in, leave it for several hours. The battery is probably too dead to do anything, and recharges very slowly. If this doesn't work, try a replacement battery, before you send the unit in for repairs.

Charging unit with AC adapter

I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

Power is not turnin On

Plug the unit into the cigarette plug or usb on the PC. If after it's plugged up and it comes on then the battery is dead. If the still unit won't come on, take the gray face plate off the front of the unit and hit the reset button and it should come on then.
