To power the unit back on, press the "Mode" and "Reset" buttons at the same time. Let go of those two buttons, press the power button, and the unit will turn back on."

My garmin 1350T just shut off and will not turn back on


If your garmin nuvi shuts off and refuses to turn back on, even if you press the power button, then it means the battery is weak and cannot power on the nuvi. Try to take out the battery and reinsert it back it then try to turn it on to see if it will turn on, if it does not still turn on, then borrow a battery from a friend and use it to test your nuvi, if it powers on, then your battery is either weak or dead.
Insert the battery into another gps and charge it with another charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge, try to use it to power your nuvi on to see if it will work. If it works, then it means your charger was not charging it initially. That means the charger is bad and need to be replaced, but if the battery does not turn on your nuvi after charging it for about 2 hours, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Either ways both the charger and the battery need to be checked to know which of the two is faulty.
Carrying out the test will show you the faulty component and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Hope this was helped you.

Turn on shuts right off already tried to reset?


The problem is either a dead battery - and the only way to know is to charge it for sure - in a wall charger. Many cell phone chargers etc will work- other wise - you must charge it in the car charger - this takes at least 20 minutes.
If your battery will not charge - I suggest you send it to Garmin for servicing.
Also a new Garmin 285WT is on sale at Tiger Direct dot com.

My garmin 750 gps will not turn on when plugged into power source


A dead battery will cause the unit not to turn on, but it should turn on if connected to an external power source like an AC wall charger or DC car charger.

Garmin not working even after same reset and mode button reboot


Not sure to catch all you did. Apparently your battery is discharged. So you should plug your device on charging via USB. Wait for a while (1 hour) then reset the device (Hold mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, release, then hold start for ten seconds

Dead unit


My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00

My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working


Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

2) fully recharge the battery with the wall charger, try
3) With a fully charged battery, press and hold the + button and press the power button(hard reset).
4) hold thumb firmly on top left of touch screen and hold power button till it switches on(hard reset).
5) Try a different battery (fully charged)
6) Ship it to Garmin

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
