Power on/off button not working on a garmin streetpilot III

The power on/off button is intermittant. If I continue to randomly push it sometimes turns on and then randomly turns off...should I crack it open and look for a problem with the touch pad connector?

Streetpilot III won't power on


The first solution is, of course, to try recharging your Streetpilot III by plugging it in to either your accessory outlet (cigarette lighter) in your car.......or a USB port on your PC. (preferably a USB2 outlet that has a higher power output).

Try charging for at least an hour with the 'other' cord, if the unit won't power up after using the 'first' one.

If the unit STILL won't power up after charging with BOTH cords (for an hour each), then either open the unit and replace the battery, or, sorry....if you're mechanically/electrically challenged......you're best to send your unit in to Garmin for repair, because it could be any number of different problems.

Good luck!

How to reset the Garmin streetpilot III deluxe


DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING unless you know why you are doing it. If you press and hold ROUTE when the unit is powered up, you do a master reset. This will clear all data and user variables. Unlike previous Garmin GPS receivers, this will NOT clear the temp compensation curves and non user data.


If the MENU key is pressed and held when the unit is turned ON, an undocumented test screen is activated which incidentally measures battery voltage, temperature and a few other things. Pressing QUIT (several times) from the test screen gives you a set of display test screens.

Resetting Your StreetPilot
If your StreetPilot freezes (stops responding to button presses), try turning it off and then on again. If this does not help, remove the batteries and then reinsert them. Disconnect from external power, if necessary.
Clearing all User Data
If resetting does not fix your problem, you may need to clear all user data from your StreetPilot.
• IMPORTANT: zf you clear all user data, you will delete all saved locations from My Favorites I and all settings in your StreetPilot. Be sure you want to clear all user data before proceeding.
To clear all user data, press and hold down all buttons in the following order: ciJ, Wheel, Power.
Continue holding down all buttons until you see a prompt, “Do you really want to erase all user data?”
Select
Yes.

Will the device turn on without the cord (on battery power)? If not then the cord is not the issue most likely. To make sure, you can use the USB cable and try charging via that hooked up to your computer (make sure computer is on). Give it sometime to charge (30mins) and see if you can get it to turn on. If this doesn't work, I think the next best thing is to contact Garmin support.

Push the power button to turn it on then count to 5 then hit enter. Then count to 5 again then hit enter. Once there hit the power button with a real quick press. The power button is also the screen brightness button. Someone may have turned it all the way down. OR the back light could have gone out.
