Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver
In some cases it's simply the wrong lead that's being used in the car. If you use the original lead you may find the problem resolves itself.
You also may need to reset the unit, but if you do this all user data will be wiped.
With your nuvi powered off, press and hold the lower left corner of the screen. Next, turn the power on. Continue to hold the screen until it asks if you really want to enter maintenance mode. Next, choose clear user data. The screen will flicker a bit and then start up like it did when it was first turned on. Follow the directions to set time and location. You will have to reacquire satellites by turning on your nuvi outside in full view of the sky. This one time acquisition may take up to 30 minutes.

Have you tried a system reset? the reset button is on the bottom of the GPS, it has a decal over it marked Reset, with a kind of bulls eye circle over the recessed reset button, u use a straightened paper clip to push the recessed reset button, if that doesn't work u will have to have Garmin fix it, there are no owner serviceable parts for this, only Garmin and there authorized repair stations can fix this and get parts.
