It sounds like the jack needs to be replaced on the unit. This is a very common problem with plugs on portable devices. It is possible that the solder connection is also bad and the jack is OK. It is usually best to replace the jack while you have the unit apart.

You should be able to take the unit apart to repair the problem.

There aren't any repair manuals available to do this.

You can also have an electronics repair shop fix it or send it to the manufacturer for service.

If you need more help, post a comment and I will get back to you.

Thanks,

Tim

Garmin nuvi 2555lm battery want charge


A common problem with these units are loose/broken connections on the rear USB port. There are 5 pins on this port. If the power pins are loose/broken, the unit will not be able to charge the battery. The unit will not turn on because the battery is dead. Even if you plug in the charger, there battery will not charge.

The unit will not charge the battery if it won't turn on.

While you could have a bad battery, the Nuvi 25xx series is not that old and the date code on the battery is probably from 2010 or later.

If you plug in the charger, the green battery status indicator should go away or you should see a lightning bolt appear over the battery status indicator . If you don't see a change to the battery status indicator when you plug in the charger, then this confirms that the rear USB port is broken and not applying a charge to the battery.

My Nuvi 200 will not charge and the USB port


My condolences. I would suggest you plug the unit in to your computer's USB port using an appropriate data cable (in case you no longer have the Garmin data cable, there are lots of devices, including cameras, that use such a cable with the large USB plug at one end and the mini-USB at the other). That would give you a handle on where the fault lies -- in the auto charger cable itself vs the nuvi's socket. If the nuvi charges from your computer, you're halfway home; if not, I suspect the cost of repairing the nuvi's USB jack could exceed the cost of a replacement unit.

Garmin Nuvi 200 not charging


I also have a Nuvi 200 that didn't charge. The problem is the charging port disconnected from the circuit board. You can disassemble the unit and reconnect the charging port but it takes a small torques wrench and a small screw driver. You will also need a soldering iron preferably with a fine tip and a very steady hand. Good luck.

Two year old #200 unit. Plug seems to come loose


yikes! unfortunatly it sounds like you will have to send that back into garmin for repairs. for loose parts inside they are the only people who are authorized to repair it. Unless you know someone who is good repairing electronics
garmins website will give you a flat rate repair on what it costs to fix it.

Is m Garmin nuvi 200 GPS charging


Merritt, Your Garmin Nuvi does not have a charging indicator similar to say your Cell ph. Simply a battery charge indicator scale. Normal full charge time is approximately 3 to 4 hr. If you looking to ensure your unit is in fact charging Plug in & then remove the connection, Your unit will pop-up a screen to request if you wish to remain on battery power. I hope this helps you.

Garmin gps won't charge while driving


If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.

If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

Just got a nuvi 200 and can't even charge it .I have an adapter for my cell phone but see no place on nuvi to plug it in. GuessI should stick to road map !?


The charging port is a mini-USB socket located on the rear of the unit. You should have received a car charger with the unit if it was new.
