Re: wont come on

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 Nuvi 660 shut itself off and will not turn back on

Hi Sherry,

The unit should not get warm, unless the battery was fully discharged or maybe shorted out. Most likely a part has failed on the main board.

Please see this link about a Dead Nuvi:

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????

Lowrance 330c screen says '' boot failed''

Try a hard reset:

1. Turn the LMS-330 off
2. Press and hold the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR buttons
3. Release the three buttons once you see the "warning, do not rely..." message appear

If you get that far, the problem is solved. If you get boot failed again, try installing the latest update which can be downloaded from

If you still get boot failed, you will need to get the LMS-330 repaired/replaced. You can contact Lowrance support at 800-324-1356 or email them by going to

Won't turn off or on, wont do anything, is lit up though

Might try a warm reset. Unscrew the plastic top of the stylis. and push it into the reset hole in the back of the unit, remone it from the reset hole, then turn unit back on.

My TOMTOM xl 330 gps navigation system wont quit flashing a red circle and white "X" in the circle. Even after i soft reset it, power off then back on, and even plug it in to the computer for a few minutes...

The flashing red circle with the X is a result of the unit becoming disconnected before all data was sent to the device. TomTom has a solution for it on their website here

Wont turn on

Question: Why won't my unit charge while plugged into my vehicle?
From the Garmin site: --> Answer: If your unit will not charge in your vehicle, you may need to replace the fuse located in the tip of the vehicle power adapter.
  1. Unscrew and remove the silver or black, round end piece. fileservlet?date=1&kb={6b85cfa0-194d-11dc-44cd-000000000000}&id={6e53bea0-6874-11dd-436f-000000000000}&ext=jpg
  2. Remove the fuse (glass and sliver cylinder) and replace with a new fuse.
  3. Ensure that the silver tip is placed in the end piece. Screw on the end piece.

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.

could the battery be dead? Leave it to charge on the wall charger for several hours. Then try again. There is a way to do a hard reset....

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
