    I have the exact problem. I have tried to reset several times but the problem persists. It is also not a power source issue as I have "charged" it while riding.

    My GPS (same model) just stopped working.  It's only three months old.  It will turn on but will shut down after a second or two.  It does the same even when I tried recharging it (connect to a cigarette-lighter power source). It seems unable to power up to sustain the screen display or unable to boot up the system.  I tried resetting it several times and it still shuts down. Is this a software or hardware (battery,etc.) problem?

    I tried for two hours on a road trip today to get my Garmin C330 to power on. I thought I just ran the battery down toofar. After getting home and plugging it in to my USB, Windows could not recognize it. I found this post, took off the faceplate, and pressed the reset button. Screen said "Charging Battery" which didn't happen before. I pressed the power button, screen came on and Windows was able to recognize the unit. Drivers are installed. The system then showed a screen stating the maps are over a year old and I need to purchase more. I then looked in My Favorites and was pleased to see my saved locations still exist.

    I saw other posts about the battery only lasting a year. I hope this is a battery issue and not a software generated issue to try and get me to update maps.

    Anyway, thanks for the solution below...pressing reset button got me further in my troubleshooting.

    I have the same problem. After plugging in to a USB or car's cigarette lighter, there's no power at all. It's not charging.

Not sure if this will work or not but take off the face plate. There is a little indention where you can get your fingernail underneath it and pry it off. You will see a button or tab that you can press...press it. This "reboots" your unit. When I did mine...it kept all my info even after rebooting. Hope this helps! Gary

Thanks for the useful hint! I had the same problem?when I tried to turn on, it would not turn on, but after I pressed the reset button behind the front silver plate and plugged it back in, the GPS was able to turn back on again.  Though, I noticed that the battery now only last for a very short time.  Looks like I might have to change the internal battery if I want to take it off the charger.  And this can be a pain in the butt.

You may have a burned out fuse in your power cord.

My power button is not working my phone was switched off could you pls help me to switch on my phone. power button is not at all working my battery is full and it was switched off.


Sometimes plugging in the phone (into the charger) allows the phone to boot. Maybe your battery is simply empty? Charging the phone is a good idea regardless.

Also, try booting to safe mode to test the power button:

  1. Turn "OFF" the Galaxy S6
  2. Press and hold the Power/Lock button at the same time until you see the "Galaxy S6? logo
  3. When the logo shows up, immediately hold the Volume Down button, while releasing the Power button
  4. Keep holding the Volume Down until your phone finishes rebooting
  5. If it was loaded successful, a "Safe Mode" will show on the bottom left corner of the screen
  6. Let go of the Volume Down button
  7. To exit "Safe Mode" press thePower/Lockkey and then touchRestart

Turns on immediately turns off


check for shorted component parts at power supply board like bridge type diode and FET transistor. if those are good, disconnect the connectors that supply going to inverter board and then turn on the tv unit if the light indicator at front panel stay and 24v supply doesn't drop which mean the inverter board was the problem of suddenly turn off.

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.

1905FP Monitor Powers up, briefly shows logo, blacks out.


Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My acer travelmate 4150 when switched on makes a constant screaming noise and does not boot up


Try this: once you turn on your Acer Laptop, immediately it shows the acer logo on your screen, press 'Esc" button constantly or press the "Esc" button continuously immediately you turn on your laptop.

I am telling you to do this out of experience, but if it does not work, let me know.

Take care.
