See page 42 of the manual to reset your device.
" If your nuvi doesn't have a reset button, slide the power key to the on/off position and hold it for 8 seconds."

SOURCE: My Garmin Nuvi 255 died. How do I reset it?

Hello there:
If you unplug the unit and remove the battery
i would check the fuse inside the unit to be sure that it is ok if it is than
leave it unplugged and the batttery out for 30 min and if there is a reset button on this after the battery is removed hold in the reset in for 2 minutes then after the 30 min replace the battery and plug in the unit and try it again his should be enough time for the internal reset to reset it'self than just replace the battery and if this still oes not help remove the battery again and leave it sit for 1 hour to let the internal reset device reset it'self ok and you should be good to go
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Michael

Reset 255 loader loading frozen


Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).
