Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver
I turn it on, GARMIN comes on the screen, then followed by
Garmin Ltd. or ts subsidaries
and then you hear some beeps and it shuts off.
If I put the adapter in, it keeps on doing this by itself (turning on and shutting off)
Have you tried resetting the unit.Press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of the nuvi for several seconds,DONT use a ball point pen to do this,use something that wont damage the unit,if this doesnt work,do a hard Reset.Or try rebooting by holding the Power switch on for 15 seconds.Good luck.

I struggled with this for a week. Could not find any reset button or hard reset. Turning the switch off for 15 seconds by holding my thump on the lower right corner of the screen and then turning it on. It asked with a message 'Do you want to erase user setup?' I pressed No and then it started working...
What is this placing finger on the right bottom corner does, no idea. but it works!
