On/off switch in "off" position for at least 30 seconds, then turn it in "on " position, power on and "reset". You'll lose all your data and all the installed programs.
Alternative: using the screen options, go to "system info", and choose "hard reset".
Beware: pushing the joystick down while doing a reset will get you a boot menu with memory-formatting options. Choose "exit".
Otherwise look into xdadevelopers forum (Google it or go to, say,
Mio P550 / P350 ROM upload [Archive] - xda-developers
A good idea would be to backup your data in the first place- just a hint.

Have lost manual. I need car charger for Mio P550 but Mio no longer making. Have purchased Scala AC Travel Charger Part No; SEL15305 (Input voltage 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz) and end is right but not sure if it...

The important thing is the ampage. If you have your old car charger check the ampage output. A higher amp rating charger will be ok as the p550 will only draw the current it needs. The voltage you listed sounds like a house charger not a portable car charger. cars run at 12v and the output should be something like 5v dc - 1amp (normally anyway).

Try this : Open your device ( it have 5 screws). Inside next to the sd card reader are two metallic sponges. Take them off ( they are glued on some electronic parts and it's shorting the circuits)

MIO p550 will not turn on

i think you must know the difference between hard and soft reset.

soft reset is the small hole you put the edge of your stylus to reset the device without erasing anything. (software restart)

hard reset (hardware restore) is:

switch the on/off slider button to OFF. keep the joystik pushed UP and without leaving the joystick slide the from OFF to ON and wait about 30 seconds.

do all that while connected to the power charge. I'd prefer you do that with a wall charger, and not with a USB cable connected to your computer (we dont like this charging state from USB ports)

let me know what happened after that. if possible, upload a video showing us what you did.

Mio P550 reboots but does not take any touchscreen inputs

I had the same and contacted MIO (use the phone number for your country,
). It was related to the shock the screen got and they graciously changed it for me (it was during the second year of the warranty). If the warranty has expired, you are probably looking to about a hundred bucks expense.
