SOURCE: nuvi 350 on off problems
This is a common problem with the Nuvi series. The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.
The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down the button, the solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually break off the main PC board. This is a design flaw and could have been easily prevented by wedging a small piece of plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support.
Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.
I have repaired many of these before and I'll be posting a step-by-step procedure on how to fix this and prevent it from happening again.
I must point out however, that in order to make this repair, you will need to have skills in dissassembly and soldering.
Also, please only attempt this procedure if your unit is out of warranty.

You only have (2) solutions:
1. Take the unit to where the secure location where the PIN was set and it will not ask your for the PIN. Then you can delete it or change it.
2. The PIN is located in non-volatile memory and can not be reset except by the factory.
Attention FIxya: Any other solution promotes hacking. The above options are from the user manual.

If you are the legitimate owner, you can send your unit back to Garmin to be unlocked. Be prepared to provide rock-solid proof of ownership because Garmin has a program that prevents stolen units from ever working again. It's one of the reasons that I purchased it. As word gets out that you cannot unlock a stolen unit, thieves will be deterred from stealing them in the first place. And if you try to open the unit to see if there is any easy jumper or something, you will permanently destroy it.
