Try holding the power button to the on position until it turns on (give it up till 1 minute to turn on) if that does not work, try a master reset, but be aware A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

To do a Master Reset on the nuvi® 2xx, 2x5, 5xx, 6xx, or 7xx:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nüvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

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: https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Nuvi-755-Replacement-Installation/dp/B003VFSR4M

I have a Garmin Nuvi 755T. I noticed that the unit was not charging via the car charger. I checked the charger and noticed that the green light was on. I also pulled the fuse and checked it and it is...


found female jack on the 755 mount where the car charger pluges into the GPS was not securely soldered onto ckt bd so after multiple times pulg in or unpluging the unit or just stressing the connection the fine wire conncetions (about 12) tend to break forcing the unit to operate on battery mode untill battery is discharged. you an purchase a replacement GPCCradle Holder compatible with Garmin Nuvi on Amazon GPS Cradle Holder Compatible with Garmin Nuvi for about $20

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.

755T runs slow have their been any noted problems that I don't know about


make sure it has a good charge on it...if the battery is very low, it will slow down or prevent the satellites form locking on

plug it in to the computer for a few hours, then take it outside in clear view of the sky and let it link up to the satillites.

to check of your unit needs any updates..go HERE and download the garmin web updater and after you install it, hook up your garmin to your computer via the usb cable provided with your unit.

if you need further help, just let me know

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????

Dead unit


My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00
