Wont come on

My 330 went black and will not come back on. I tried hooking up to computer but you have to turn on unit first. I can not get it to come on. I just got this thing the week after christmas.

    Same problem. I did notice that the fuse in my car charger was blown. Replaced it, still black screen. Tried charge via USB also. Bought it from Wal*Mart in November. I expect I can exchange it or have it repaired under warranty, but would rather just fix it myself.

    Any tips on getting the front cover off? The two pieces seem to join along the memory card slot. I've pried at it a little, but there is a great deal of resistance.




1 Answer

The gray/silver cover on front of unit comes off and it has a reset button under the cover, push it for 3 sec's and that should do it.

Garmin 755T BLACKOUT 2009!!!! Solve Basically, me and my wife had to pick up a friend 2 towns over. I jump into my car and input... (More) Basically, me and my wife had to pick up a friend 2 towns over. I jump into my car and input directions to her friends house. All of a sudden my GPS 755T is telling me that it is trying to update the firmware. I press ok. it displayed 1% said done and it couldn't find the Satellites. I was like WTH and turned it off and back on. It stated Cannot find Satellites. I was like ok, let me keep it on the charger 12V Cigarrette lighter. I thought it would start working while we drive and my wife was trying to turn it on but the screen went black and now I'm pissed because I just brought this thing. I went to Garmin's web page but there was nothing informative. I guessing something happened when this Firmware was trying to download into my unit. It must have killed something. It is now 10:27pm June 24th and I'm just surfing the net looking for similar experiences. now I know I'm not the only one. GARMIN WHAT HAPPENED????

Turned black

I had the same problem.  I went to the site and went to the trouble-shooting section.  They said I needed to "reset" it.  This is done by holding in both the turn on button on the face and the turn off button at the top.  Hold in both at the same time for 10 seconds are more.  That worked for me.  
If that doesn't work, they also had something which required hooking it up to your computer, but that "fix" erases everything you have added to it.  It's just like starting over.  
Hope the first method works for you.

Check the power cord fuse and the input jack on the board and make sure their are no broken lead connections ( cold solder joints ) to the board. If you have a volt meter, you should be able to read 12v DC to the plug. Good Luck
