    Our Streetpilot c330 doesn't power on anymore. Sometimes we get a screen for a couple of seconds and then it goes dead again.
    I tried to power it on after connecting to the USB port of my computer, but this didn't help . Connecting to the mains with the transformer doesnt' help either.

    Do I have to buy another device or is there still hope?

    shuts off about 5 seconds after being turned on, I have connected it to the USB, so I'll wait and see after a complete night of charge

    I also bought my Garmin c330 in November also. It just stopped turning on, and then yesterday it started by itself while sitting on the counter. I saw it across the room. Then, nothing. Does it seem odd that all of us bought this around the same time. I bet we got a bad batch.

  • Anonymous Jun 03, 2008

    Garmin powers up for two seconds then stops. Does this even when plugged in and after what should be a charge. Only a few months old

  • princeztessy Jul 01, 2008

    Oh man.. I also bought the c330 on black friday... powers on and wont get past the blue street pilot screen--just shuts off! Will "work" when connected to the PC, but who's going to drive around with a computer?

    Is Garmin doing anything about this?

  • nappy4 Jul 02, 2008

    Same problem. Turn on and street pilot screen comes up and then shuts off.

  • Anonymous Jul 10, 2008

    SAME PROBLEM. My unit has been a lemon from the start. It regularly loses signal and has troublel locating a satellite. This device has not given me any confidence or peace of mind.

    SAYS VERY LOW BATTERY WON'T CHARGE OR STAY ON

  • rlefkoff Dec 29, 2008

    I have a Garmin StreetPilot c340. I bought it in March 2007. From the start I had to occasionally use the reset button and then connect to the computer in order to get the screen to turn on. Now my unit is totally dead. It won't turn on at all. It is past the year warranty and I am very disappointed that I wasted my money. It should have lasted a lot longer than this. Is there anything I can do?

  • Vonwoody Dec 30, 2008

    I have the same problem, but I checked my fuse and it is still OK. But the unit seemed to power up when hooked to my computer, so I am going to charge it for three hours on the computer (manual says this long). Then, if it still does not power on; I purchased a battery to install (replacement) longer life. More than likely, it is the battery, but the garmin website still says to clean the contacts on the back of the unit with an eraser or Q-tip and see if that works. Hope this helps.

I am having the same problem....I found that the end of the power cord ( that plugs into the lighter ) is missing ,along with the fuse!! Sooo...I'll have to locate a new screw in end piece and fuse or get a new power cord.
Even if the end of the cord were still intact.....a blown fuse might cause the same problem.

Your battery is dead. Try hooking up the unit to your computer USB port.

Garmin won't turn on


I hope this helps, I had the same thing happen today. I noticed on the face under the word Garmin you can pop the face off and underneath on the right side is a reset button I held it down for 10 seconds popped the face back on and pressed the power button it came on. I hope this works for you.

My streetpilot c330 won"t shut off.


IT'S CALLED A FROZEN SCREEN...

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

Will not stay on


Connect the Garmin using the USB cable to your computer. Turn on your computer and let it boot up. Now turn on the Garmin. Does it stay on? If the answer is yes then the battery is dead. If the answer is no then you have something internally wrong with the Garmin. If the unit is still under warranty then get a RMA and send it back to Garmin.
