    You should read the information on Garmin's website:

    "Garmin nüvi 7x5 customers who are no longer able to power on their GPS device will need to visit, and select the first FAQ titled ?My nüvi 755T, 765T, 775T or 785T is giving me the message ?Updating GPS Firmware? or will no longer power on?? Customers will then need to follow the instructions to request a return authorization so that the device may be repaired under warranty."

    How long did you have it before it stopped working? What have you tried to do to fix it?

    Are you sure the battery is charged up?

    Sometimes unplugging the unit from the charging source (USB or cigarette lighter) and then removing the battery and re-inserting it will get it back operating.

HI, same problem. I bought my 755t just over a month ago. I found a solution on this site.
U can opt to have garmin fix it (who knows how long it may take?) or if you are handy, there are 2 little screws at the back of the 755 remove them and pry the back cover open. Just be very careful not to disturb the wires too much. Disconnect the battery and reconnect it 10 or 15 minutes later. That's all. Close the cover and replace the 2 screws. Install latest software I think it is version 3.60.

There is software bug that comes up randomly and sets the unit into an update loop that is with version 3.40 on a certain day of the year. I think on the longest day of the year. Anyhow, I fixed mine 3 days ago it works flawlessly.

I have the Nuvi 755t

the problem is a bug in the software updates. to get mine to power on again,***be very careful*** all i did was pop the back plate off. there is 2 screws. some people say #5 #6 or #7, to be honest, find one that fits yours. once that is done. the back plating is just snapped it. now, the tricky part is to uncover it without harming the wires that are connected(speaker and battery). once the back plate is off and you see the inside, take twezzers and pull the battery wire so it becomes disconnected. count to 30. then place and push gently the wire back in. snap the cover back on fully. carefully screw the 2 screws in. PRESTO!

anyhow, this worked for me. however if there is any sign of trying to open the unit, the unit becomes void of warranty. if you can do it precisely, without making and marks or nicks while trying to get inside the unit, then your ahead of the game. if something else should happen again.

Garmin Nuvi 755t Stuck in power up cycle

You can do two things.

First, plug the GPS in overnight in a regular USB charger. If the battery charges up, then the problem is with your Garmin vehicle cable.

If it does not charge up, you can buy a battery replacement kit for it:

Car power supply for Garmin nuvi 755t does not work. Not sure if its the Wire, mount Adapter or other.

I assume you have checked the cigarette lighter to be sure it's working.
The most likely problem is the fuse in the power cord/charger. The plug which goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring at the end of it. Unscrew the ring, taking care not to lose any small parts, and it comes apart. Replace the fuse and it should be ok.

happened to me too bro... I posted this:

Garmin 755T BLACKOUT 2009!!!! Solve Basically, me and my wife had to pick up a friend 2 towns over. I jump into my car and input... (More) Basically, me and my wife had to pick up a friend 2 towns over. I jump into my car and input directions to her friends house. All of a sudden my GPS 755T is telling me that it is trying to update the firmware. I press ok. it displayed 1% said done and it couldn't find the Satellites. I was like WTH and turned it off and back on. It stated Cannot find Satellites. I was like ok, let me keep it on the charger 12V Cigarrette lighter. I thought it would start working while we drive and my wife was trying to turn it on but the screen went black and now I'm pissed because I just brought this thing. I went to Garmin's web page but there was nothing informative. I guessing something happened when this Firmware was trying to download into my unit. It must have killed something. It is now 10:27pm June 24th and I'm just surfing the net looking for similar experiences. now I know I'm not the only one. GARMIN WHAT HAPPENED????
