    Received c340 as a gift...after one year mine turned off and will not turn on again. My brother's did the same thing after one month. This seems to be a common problem and I would not recommend this unit.

    look, everyone is having the same problem. The garmin starts once or twice and then it doesn't. Mine started for two days and now the light will go on and the trademark comes on and in 3 seconds it's off again.

    if no one knows how to fix this just say so and I will make sure to recommend to know one. who has time to take it back and send it to a factory. People gets these appliances because they are BUSY!

You have to take the front cover off and hit the reset button. It should start after that.

Just bought it. used it for 1 hour and it went dead.charged it all night and now i cant power it up by moving power button to left

that's not a good sign rarely happens just take it back to your retailer even without a receipt they should give you an exchange for the same or a similar unit.

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in

I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

Garmin won't turn on or charge.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Will not turn on

If it does not turn on when you plug it into the computer, yes, it sounds like you may have a dead battery. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin as to how to get it replaced.
