I think your battery has failed, you will need to send the GPS back to Garmin for a new battery, the battery is not replaceable by the consumer, it requires special tools, if u don't have them u can destry the GPS

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


The mini-USB jack needs to be either resoldered or replaced. When the jack is loose, you will not be able to charge the internal battery. The jack becomes loose from overuse. The jack needs more mechanical support to the pronted circuit board. I have fixed this problem many times.

Charging a garmin nuvi 255w


From dead flat it takes about 9-10 hours
do not leave on charger for more than that otherwise you will overheat and burn it out.
After each use recharge for about 3-4 hours depending on whether the unit has been used for that lengthyof time

First time use / battery charge


The Nuvi units are short on battery life and therefore Garmin has given you a connector other then USB to power your unit while in a car. You need to carry that. It's just a design flaw. If you try to rely on the battery of your Garmin Nuvi, you have less than 2 hours even on a full charge. And carrying the USB adapter which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket won't allow your unit to run while charging. so you need to take the adapter charger bracket that comes with the unit if you need it for longer trips.

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
