This means that the internal battery of the gps system is completely dead and can not hold a charge. All you will need to do is replace the battery and it should work like new. The battery is fairly cheap to buy and replace.

Thats a fairly new unit and i doubt if the battery is shot already.

1st verify that its charging. hook up the home or car charger, then go into the syatem settings and see if the battery indicator is moving left to right..if it is, its charging. if its not moving and shows a low battery, then its not charging.

Brand new out of the box, wont turn on

First when you get your insignia ns-cnv20 car gps receiver, you need to connect the charger into it and charge it for about 3 hours or till the battery is full, that is when you can power it on. Ensure that the battery is properly inserted, then the charger is okay by trying it out on another gps device. If you charge it for a while and it does not come on still, then you need to take it back to the dealer that supplied it to you. Since you just bought it.

My Tomtom Gps wont turn back on, It's connected to a power source and that isn't helping either. What should i do?

The problem with your tom tom is either the battery or the charger. Either ways you need to test them both then replace the faulty part. That is why the gps receiver is not powering up.
Do not panic when your gps seems to be acting funny, There is no problem without a solution, and if it is beyond repair the solution will simply be that you replace the gps receiver.
  1. Test the battery in another gps receiver, to see if it will power it on,
  2. Charge the battery in another gps receiver for about 2 hours with another charger then try to power it on,
  3. If it turns on, then it means the battery is okay and working fine, but if it does not turn on the other gps, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
  1. Test the charger on another gps receiver to see if it will work.
  2. If it does not work then you need to replace it,
  3. But if it works then you do not need to replace it.
After carrying out the test, you will be able to detect the problem and solve it.
Hope this information helped.

Garmin255w wont turn on

It could be that your batter has no charge. If you have plugged it into your car charger and it still does not turn on then try plugging it into you computer with a USB cable. If it turns on then replace your car charger. If it still does not work then your GPS either has a bad connection or something is wrong internally

It wont come on

Hello :

Have you charged it using the main charger? It's possible that just being connected to the PC isn't supplying enough power to get it properly charged. Try disconnecting it from the PC, plugging it into the charger and the charger into the wall and leave it for a while. Then try to turn it on. Do you have a car charger? Try that instead. If that didn't help , then I recommend you to replace the battery .

Forerunner 305 keeps beeping, turning on and off every 5 seconds

I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

Magellan 1400 gps does not turn on when connected to car charger. Tried several times but in vain? can you let me know how to fix it?

well it may not be able to be solved without expense.
Do you have an AC charger? if so try to turn iot on when its been connected to the charger for about 10 mins if it comes on when on AC then you will need to change the internal battery/s other than tjhat the circuit is damaged
some models do not have AC chargers

if this is new or under warranty make a claim ASAP as they go out of models so quickly they have a poor warranty system
