Garmin 755T Issue - Firmware Update and acquiring satellite
Garmin 755T - Had issue with Firmware Update (1%)- then pressed "OK" to move on. Later, the unit simply would not turn on for @ 36 Hrs. Now sometimes has difficulty acquiring satellites and I have to re-cycle it to get out of ever-ending loop of "acquiring satellite". I read on this blog (FixYa) that another person experienced same issue - exactly as I did. What is issue and recommended actions?ThanksBob

You need to do a complete reset by turning it on and at the same time press the bottom right hand corner of the screen this will reset it to factory condition. having done that when you switch it on again leave some where where it has a clear view of the sky and leave it for about 1/2 an hour. This should sort it out for you. Best of luck.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Have you tried a complete reset? If not this is what you do. Turn on the Garmin at the same time press the bottom right hand corner of the screen. this will return it to factory standard, but it will wipe out any information you may have stored on it.
i have had the same problem obviously. all i did was get a TORX TX5 screw driver and open up 2 screws. carefully lift off the cover(its just snapped in). Warning: battery and speaker are attached to the cover so do not pull the cover off or it will break the wire. carefully unplug the battery and leave it out for a 20 mins or so. plug it back in and it should power up and then connect it to internet, download webupdater and update. thats it and the problem is fixed.
Garmin 755T BLACKOUT 2009!!!!

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????
Update your unit. Garmin has this problem where you try to enter a location before it acquires satellites. It is very noticeable on the Garmin Nuvi 650 also. Another thing you can try is wait for it to acquire the satellite and see if you don't get up and running. In some cases, it can take up to 4 minutes to acquire satellite information. If this is also your case, updating the firmware to 6.10 should fix that also.
To find what your firmware version you have, click on the TOOLS icon (wrench), click on SYSTEM, ABOUT (bottom of your screen). Anything less than 6.1, you'll have issues.
