Garmin Streetpilot 2620 electrical short

I have a Streetpilot 2620. I called Garmin and they want $275 to fix it. I took it to a friend that fixes televisions. He looked at it and said there was a short somewhere near the off/on switch which was causing the unit to not turn on. He said he would need a schematic of the circuit board to fix it Should I toss it and by a new one or is it fixable?

Where can I get a new 2.2 GB magicstor hard drive


There are many different compatible CF cards for the removable CF version of the 2620 that will work. A search of "Garmin 2620 CF" will yield what you are looking for for around $15.

AndrexT missed by a mile I'm afraid. The 2620 has no battery. It requires a constant power supply.

Won't boot up


I have a same problem, and I think I can fix it, may be not. Any how, I bought a cornice drive on eBay and as soon I will get it. I will load my maps on to it with usb connector after that I take it a part and remove it from its case. Then I will take my Garmin Streetpilot 2620 apart remove the old cornice drive and install the new drive. I suspect it will work like a charm. To check your GPS at boot push and hold "menu-find" buttons simultaneously and you will get a screen to verify your problematic cornice drive.59c5167.jpg

There is no reset button. Every time you turn off your Garmin and turn it back on it reloads everything fresh. What is likely the cause of what you are experiencing is a failed Cornice microdrive. It is near impossible to fix with the parts available today (May 2010) and it is more time management and cost effective simply to purchase a working 2610 from a third party site, or to purchase a new unit from the store that is still supported. In addition to the parts issue Garmin discontinued Map support for the 2620 (and 2610) in 2009.

In February I posted that I will replace the cornice drive on my 2620 because I had this problem 019d1f6.jpg Well I did that, but could not fix the problem. Garmin is asking $275 to replace my unit, I did not wanted to pay them that much. So I bought a 2610 at eBay for a $100 and don't have to worry about hard drives any longer.
To get this screen on a GPS push "menu+find" and then turn on unit. It will show this diagnostic screen.
