To open a Garmin c330 gently pry the silver front cover off by starting at the Garmin Logo location. A thin blade or small screw driver will work well. The silver cover has molded snap-in clips that pop out from the main case. Once the silver cover is off, remove the 4 screws and the case will open. My display was not working, I fixed the problem by adjusting the display's ribbon cable at its connector.

My Garmin C330 won't turn on.

This is likely a failed battery.
The battery on these units is not user-replaceable (soldered to the PCB) and must be returned to Garmin for repair.

Need battery for street pilot c330

THis battery will work in your C330 Garmin. I have had it in my unit for 3 years now without any issues.

Just open the unit and splice the wires, and use some electrical tape. Good as new.

Display image has shifted, difficult to use

ok, first you will have to unplug the power and usb cables to remove external power. Secondly, place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate and gently pull off the face plate. Next, press the reset button for three seconds. Finally, connect the c330 to a power source using the power cable. the c330 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.

Please rate my response and have a wonderful nite.

Garmin c330 antenna connector has fallen into the gps

Pry off the colored faceplate around the screen. Underneath will be four screws. Remove them and open the unit up. You should be abe to access the inside of the unit to figure out a way to reattatch the connector. I have not had to do this but I have opened a couple up to replace displays. The hardest thing is getting the thing back together due to how the antenna mounts (poorly). Just open it slowly and visualize how it goes back in. I have no advice on actually fixing your issue, just on how to get in to look around.

Cannot download from the disc to my garmin c330

Hi, bit confused.
If your using Disc's, then download is a different procedure.???
Assuming disc's
Just copy from the disc's , say off the desktop, you can put them on there to use it, then right click and copy the correct files,

Go to my computer, go to the nuvi drive, open up the nuvi folder, paste it to the correct folder, restart it.

If the maps are there, then tap menu, map info, tick boxes
serial needed and Unit I.D. to activate
unit I.D., menu-tools-system-about

If downloading, jack it to Pc, run download again,
Through your account @ Garmin.

Hope this helps

Failure to acquire satellite

To reset the unit, pry off the silver faceplate.
Turn the unit on using the power button on the right side.
Press the reset button that was hidden behind the face plate.
The GPS unit should restart, and display its software version.
Make a note of the software version in case you have to call customer service.
To acquire satellites make sure the GPS has a clear view of the sky.

For Garmin customer service, call 800-800-1020.
