Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight. - If all this fails - you can call Garmin and they will tell you what you must do. Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings - 1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture. 2-Select YES PLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help. Thanks

Forgot pin code

Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

How to reset password ,forgot it

You need some type sharp (but not as sharp as a pin...don't use that) object to trigger the switch. I have used the ball tip of a ball point pen to do the reset. You will receive no on-screen message that the unit has been reset so don't look for one.

One way to tell if you have triggered the reset switch would be to have the unit turned on when you do it. The unit will then reboot indicating that you have triggered the switch and reset the unit.
