Re: Will not turn on

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 it. This "reboots" your unit. When I did kept all my info even after rebooting. Hope this helps! Gary

Re: Will not turn on



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.

I have recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 765T and I have charged it and waited to use in the car but after a few seconds of turning it on, it turns itself off after showing the "Garmin" company...

Try to soft reset it by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds till it restarts.

If that doesn't help - try a master reset to factory defaults by holding the lower right corner during startup for at least 20 seconds. This will erase all user data and starts the Garmin in factory default.

If it restart I suggest updating the software to the latest version on

My garmin nuvi shows the Garmin name thenpowers off immediately. I can not do anything with it because it does not stay on long enough

Glad to HELP YOU!

This problem usually appears when the battery is COMPLETELY DISCHARGED. So your device doesn't have enough power/energy to complete the booting cycle = to TURN ON.
Take out the battery [if possible] and clean all connectors [the golden metallic tiny stripes] with a dry soft cloth.
Re-insert back the battery and make a complete CHARGING CYCLE.
Then try again.
If the problem persists you have no other choice but to buy a new battery for your GPS device.

Shuts off, won't charge battery

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
