I had the same thing. Seemed to be a faulty SANDISK 2GB MicroSD card. When I pulled it out, the unit worked again.

My Garmin GPSmap 76CSx will begin to start up, but as soon as you release the power button the screen fades away.


This problem can occur when the map file is corrupted or can't be read. Try putting your sd card in a reader and deleting the GMAPSUPP file (in the GARMIN folder) and fitting it back in your device. Then reload the map from Mapsource onto your handheld.

Hi, if USB connection is OK, you have to make hard reset after that download firmware 3.40 by Uploader (no Garmin WebUploader). Your Co will startup but your data will be lost. Jean

My Garmin GPSmap 76CSx was working just fine. After leaving it unused for a couple months with a pair of alkaline batteries installed, I tried to turn it on. It would not come on. I checked the battery...


Try connecting it to USB and powering it up, to confirm that unit still works overall. You probably damaged battery connectors. Check if you can clean the connectors better, otherwise you may need to do some soldering to fix them, by yourself or n a repair shop. Check with Garmin if they have suggestions: a leaking battery should not disable a GPS.

My garmin gps 60 csx hangs midway during operation


Have you updated the unit's software lately? Free unit software updates can be found on Garmin's site. Search for your model as this software is model-specific. There was a new satellite launched in '08 which caused problems for some Garmin units, making some units freeze. The software update fixes this.

Please come back and advise us if this works, and rate our solution. Thank you.

Serial number


Pull off the battery panel. In-between the 4 pin connector and the battery compartment you will find an 8 digit number.

Note the serial number is different from the unit ID which can be found by using the Garmin Mapsource software tools, or by going to:
Menu >> Setup >> System >> Menu >> Software Version

Garmin freezes


2 OPTIONS

ONE, RESET IT !!! (See resetting instructions below)

TWO, let the battery die out!

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

Battery compartment connectors


I had this happen with my 76CS. The cost for a look at it is $125. I used a piece of aluminum foil.

Fold it over, make certain it holds tight against the wire.

It's not the best solution, but it works.

You could also search for a device with a similar battery contact, unsolder it, and pull the Garmin apart and solder it in. I'm still looking for the right device.
