Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
Unable to turn my nuvi 350 on or off using the power button.
Is this because the battery charge is too low to operate the on/off ? Please help!
There is a well known issue with power switch failures on this unit. It happened to me as well. I have heard that you can power the unit on with the car charger or if you plug it into the PC using the USB interface. I will try this tonight and report back my finding. I will be taking mine apart because of my bad experience using Garmin's technical support line. Most likely the problem is a defective switch or broken solder joint where the switch connects to the motherboard. Remember also, you have to hold the switch down for a couple seconds for the unit to power up.

The switch assembly has rotated away from the circuit board losing the tongue and groove contact with the plastic slider. This may have been caused by the unit exposed to impact. It is not recommended that you open the case due to the fact you may rip the wiring harness which connects the LCD to the circuit board. You require a special tool to insert simultaneously into the slots on the bottom of the unit. The case must be popped open with equal pressure exerted by the tool at the two slots. The case must be prevented from popping off a distance longer than the wiring harness. Otherwise, the harness will tear away from the circuit board rendering the unit unrepairable.
