If you can try first changing the battery of the unit to check if everything will be working fine, because there's a possibility that the battery went bad or worse the unit has some problem with it , if after changing the battery still have the same problem better have it replace and take the new unit Off Shore for your own good.

Hope that helps..........

What you need to do is to upgrade the gps device is to reset the system

The Garmin 255W is a GPS navigation unit that helps you determine your location and navigate to a destination by using data from the global positioning satellite network combined with onboard maps. It has a touch screen display. Type in the name of a place to find it on the map, and you will hear step-by-step instructions to get to the location. If the Garmin 255W is having a problem or if you want to erase the data recorded for recent trips or for the vehicle's fuel economy, you can easily reset it by following a few steps.


  1. Touch "Menu."
  2. Touch "View Map."
  3. Touch the "Speed" field on the display.
  4. Touch "Reset Trip." This resets the information in the trip computer.
  5. Touch "Tools," and then touch "ecoRoute." This is where you can enter information about your vehicle's average city and highway fuel economy and fuel type. If you want to reset the vehicle profile data, touch "Reset."
  6. Slide the "Power" key to the left position and hold it for eight seconds to reset the Garmin 225 if it is having a problem.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

  • Thing with these Garmin batteries is they go bad after sitting for a while without being used. I recommend plugging it in for 2 hours and then try turning it on and if it turns on it is the battery. Mine did the same thing. It won't hold a charge on it's own but for 20 minutes or so but works fine if I leave it plugged into the car. The reason I say to leave it plugged in for 2 hours before trying to turn it on is because the battery is so dead it will take a while to even get enough of a charge to turn on at all.

My garmin 545s does not turn on

My Garmin 545s would not power up. I took the unit to West Marine, where they had the correct cable to hook it up and test it. The unit immediately powered up and I purchased a $22 cable and installed it. Easiest test and fix I could come up with. Really cheap fix.

Lost glow plug function

Had same thing happen on my New Holland 1630. Took the buss bar off the glow plugs and pulled them out and tested with test leads on the battery. They glowed. Put a volt/ohm meter on the buss bar and turned the key to glow position, no 12 volts present. Checked for blown fuse, nothing blown. Looked at relays. There was a glow plug lamp timer next to the start relay. Wiggled wires going to timer while asking for glow with key. Saw the glow lamp flicker. Took timer out and opened it up. Found a broken solder joint on circuit board resulting in a loose capacitor. Soldered the crack and put back on tractor. That was it! Glow plugs work now.

hi there !

-if you switch the computer on and it boots up and you hear the windows sound, this could be a possible video problem or motherboard problem
-run the diags on the LCD, while the computer is off, press and hold "D" then press power button at the same time, if you see the colors red blue green without any problems then it is a motherboard or video card problem
-another method to run the test is while the computer is off; preess and hold Fn then press power button, let the test run; when you see the question were colour bars displayed, press N, if you see the colors red blue and green without any problem then it is a motherboard problem or video card; otherwise it is an LCD problem
-to toggle display on the external monitor press Fn then F8

cheers !

Monitor goes blank

Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.
