Re: uniden gns8350 wont turn on

Have you tried just leaving it on charge for a few minutes before trying to turn it on?

Yes. Left it plugged in in the car. (There's no AC adapter for this unit and you are warned not to use anything but the adapter provided by Uniden).

Is the battery charged? Is the device plugged into an electric socket you try to turn it on?

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton

look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

My garmin won't turn on. I have tried the plug in

it does have an internal battery, but that normally wont prevent it
from turning on unless the battery is defective.

plug it in to the usb cable on your computer for a while (normally it will start right up) then slide to power switch to the on position for about ten seconds.

if that fails, press and hold the lower right corner of the screen and then slide the power switch to the on position while holding the lower right corner of the screen and follow the directions once it starts

i can give you something else to try before you go and spend money on a battery...a battery should be the last thing to do, even though it will more often then not fix the problem thats tempory..

if it turns out you think you need a battery, i will point you to one with instructions on how to change it.

It wont switch on

not a lot to go on! but as it dont switch on I guess i will have to settle with the usual stuff.

The internal battery is flat or has collapsed.

If using in cig lighter checki the fuse in the end of the power plug.

The board has been spiked by a surge. If you plugged this to power and then started the engine it will kill gps very quickly, especially the SIIRF chip and no satellites will ever be found. But it can also blow the board. there are no internal fuses in this GPS xso dont attempt to open, there are bits that fall out though and you will not find it easy to put them back.

Try changing the battery or recharging on an AC charger if you have one leave it for an hour then see if it turns on when on the AC if so and it turns off ehen removed or only lasts a short time the battery is collapsed

Uniden trax 430 frozen

I have had a similiar problem with my Trax 430. The screen freezes at the system shut down stage. I have to plug it into the computer via the USB cable. It then recognizes the computer and attempts to do an USB update. Then just unplug it. It should work but not a practical solution when you are driving about.

Tom tom go 710 wont switch on

Press the tiny reset button...

You'll need the pointy end of a paperclip or a pin.

Turn your TomTom upside down and look at the underneath, with the screen facing away from you.

Starting at the back and moving towards the screen, you'll see a small traingular-shaped piece of rubber, then a plastic area with a small hole to the left, then the circuit board with all the little gold connectors.

It's that small hole that's the reset button, push your paper clip or pin in there. Your TomTom should reset straight away, but sometimes it takes a few tries for various lengths of time.

Enjoy your newly restored TomTom!

Gqrmin 350 GPS Receiver wont turn on

Dead Battery? That makes no sense at all. He mentioned he was running it off the battery - " I was able to plug it in to a computer1.gif and unplug and was able to use it on the battery. Once I unplug and use it on battery, the only way I can power it off is by pressing the Reset button on the back."

The fact of the matter is that there is a well known issue with Nuvi 350 Power switch. I haven't taken mine apart yet (also bad power switch), but most likely the switch is defective or the solder joints are broken.
