Flip locking flap on connector away from the gold pins. Slide the ribbon cable into the connector on the side with the gold pins as far as it will go. The ribbon goes face down with its gold pins facing down. Then using two fingers flip the locking flap down and toward the ribbon cable. It should click. Be careful, if you snap the flap it is game over.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 200 pick up charger as a usb cable

The problem is very simple... The GPS unit perceives whatever you plug in depending on the power supply figure.
If you car charger is not giving enough power, then the GPS perceive the cable as being connected to a pc.... thus not charging. Check with an car electrician if you can raise the power supply on your car...

I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

Resoldered the UPS port. Now cannot reattach the ribbon cable. Any suggestions?


Resoldering is OK, but reinforcing the connector with a bonding material to prevent the connector from moving is also required.

As for the LCD ribbon cable, there is a horizontal lock down latch, about an inch long. that locked the ribbon to the board. If that latch is cracked, broken or missing, it is game over for the GPS. Yes, the latches can be replaced but it is very tedious.

If the latch is ok, all you need to do is flip the latch up. Slide the ribbon cable into the mating connector, with the gold contacts face down. Slide the ribbon in as far as it will go and using two fingers spaced at either end of the latch, flip the latch down, locking it into place. It will grab the ribbon and make the connection to the board.

My 2 yr old Garmin nuvi 200 was working fine...when I got home and turned the car off, it quit working and won't turn back on. I keep it plugged into the lighter, so it's not battery power.


No it's not the battery power: your nuvi has suffered the firmware equivalent of a stroke.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

HOW DO I INSTALL A BATTERY IN MY GARMIN NUVI 660


Replacing the nuvi 660's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
utube.png You-Tube video "S2KEu_if7wA" placeholder (do not delete) utube.png
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+660&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 680 is back up and running smoothly.

Palm zire 71 replaced battery camera and charging port not wrking


Dis you see if either the brown plastic locking part of the connector is broken or missing?

Do you know if the soldering joints and terminals of such connector are in good shape?

I am asking because it may be only that the flat ribbon cable is nort placed properly, or such flat ribbon cable is damaged.

Also, the connector at the mainboard can be damaged.

Depending of what is damaged, it will be the cost to repair it.

I do recoomend you to disassembly very carefully your pda again, and check such areas and parts.

If you find something that is broken, you can get the needed parts from a broken PDA in Ebay or similar sites.

Best regards,
