    Same problem with my 7500. Garmin needs to address this defect or replace all of these defective units.

I have a similar problem with a 7200 which has starting shutting off on its own. First I discovered that if I turned the GPS receiver off (like I was using it indoors) it stayed on. After some more experimenting, it seems that if I just disable the WAAS/EGNOS function it also stays on. This reduces accuracy, but may be an acceptable work-around (certainly cheaper than several hundred $ repair bill).

If its just the 12 V adapter - how about using a power inverter (around $30.00) to power the device?  A little cumbersome, but a whole lot less expensive.

Tequiza,

 

I am having the same problem with my 7500. Do you have your power supply ALWAYS powered on, even though you may have your unit off? Do you have the same problem with the AC adapter? It may be just the 12V DC adapter. Bad news if it's out of warranty, Garmin wants $400 to repair. That's outragous IMHO.

I am having the sauess is that me problem with my 7500. My guess is that a power component is heating up and shutting it down.

GPS StreetPilot c340 quit working


Plug charger in, and then reset it. Let it charge for awhile before tryng to use it though. It sounds like the battery is very very low. When it is plugged in it still will not operate unless the battery has some charge in it. I hope this helps.

Frozen Screen


I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

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

My Garmin c550 will not come on anymore. The screeen is black


Check the 12v power cord to make sure its still powering/charging the unit. Usually they have a light on them that will show if its receiving power or not. You can also unscrew the tip of those things (on most cables) and check the fuse to see if its blown. If its not lighting up and the fuse on the cable is ok check the one in your truck to see if it needs replacing.

If the cable is not the issue then the GPS is probably dead. If its not under warranty the flat rate repair fee from Garmin is $200

Garmin won't stay on


Oh man.. I also bought the c330 on black friday... powers on and wont get past the blue street pilot screen--just shuts off! Will "work" when connected to the PC, but who's going to drive around with a computer?

Is Garmin doing anything about this?

Garmin c530


According to technical support, the "glitch" has been fixed with the latest web updater on the Garmin site. In the meantime, you will need to leave the unit unplugged for upto 48 hours to allow the battery die and the unit to get out of its "hang up". Once the battery is completely dead, plug the GPS into a computer (USB) and it should come back to life. Then do the update.

Hope this helps.
