IF it stil won't pwer up with the dc plug, I suspect the internal battery. Lots of info online on replacement, you can CAREFULLY snip one lead as a a diagnostic test to take it out of the circuit. Good Luck!

My garmin nuvi 1390LMT will not power on...any suggestions


After a couple of years without use, the batteries may be completely dead and take all the Chargers current and not power up.

I turn it on stays on for couple of seconds and shut back down, a couple of times it say battery is low, has been hooked up to 12volt power connecter in my car for close to 2 days


Your Nuvi 760 needs a new battery: rechargeables don't last forever.

Garmin's hope is that when the battery fails then you'll buy a whole new Garmin or will send it to them to be replaced, but it's a straightforward task to do yourself. Buying a new unit might make sense though if your unit also has outdated maps and/or outdated traffic/speed camera subscriptions.

A number of online suppliers have suitable batteries and there's more than one YouTube video showing you how to replace the battery. Click here for an example. Note that the same battery is fitted to the identical Nuvi 770, the only differences between the models is that the 770 has a larger internal memory to enable it to carry full US, UK and European mapping.

Unit will not turn on


Hello sympleman,

What you are describing may very well be a result of the battery going bad. The internal battery in your GPS receiver does have a limited lifespan. It is normal for the amount of operating time between charges to gradually decrease until eventually the battery pack does fail.

Unfortunately the battery does not appear to be replaceable by the user. To get the battery pack replaced you can contact Garmin directly. Their website is http://www.garmin.com.

Best Regards,
Ken

Garmin C340 battery not charging


The Garmin batteries tend to die after about 2 years. Garmin will replace the battery for you but prepare to pay top dollar. It is a shame because the problem is commonplace. They should have made the replacement user friendly. The battery is buried deep inside and it is soldered.

There is a button cell soldered to the main circuit board that powers the real-time clock while the unit is off or the main battery is removed or flat. After a couple of years this button cell dies and has to be replaced. I've had this problem twice in five years, and each time replacing the button cell fixes the problem.

Needs a Garmin workshop, or someone who's good with a fine-point soldering iron.

Pop the face plate off with your thumb nail right uner the Garmin logo. On the right side you will see a reset button. Depress it for 2 seconds. Replace face plate and power back on.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
