Replace the charger with a new charger properly sized for your GPS. That is the very first step and most common cause of failure. Let me know if that takes care of your problem. If not, we can dig deeper. :-)

Hi, your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Take care

    Hi, if it's a Magellan Roadmate, try this below
    On the left side of the unit pull up the rubber cover. You will see a very small switch and a button above it or below it.

    With a a pen slid the switch, and push the re set button. Then slid the
    switch back. and turn on the unit the way you normally do. If it
    doesn't light up, either you did it wrong, the unit is discharged, or there is something
    wrong with it. If nothing works call Magellan and if it is still under
    service, they will help you. Good luck to you.

    Take care

My phone keeps shutting on and off and wont charge when plugged in


Cell phone batteries have what is called a "memory" over time if they are charged without being fully drained they can start to not hold a charge. Unfortunetly the only fix for an issue like yours is to purchase a new battery. Your local retailer / service provider should have batteries in stock or they can order one for you.
It is recommended to allow the batteries to drain completely before charging, then allow at least 8 hours or more to fully charge. Most cell phone will show a full charge after a few hours, but this is more a fault with the software that check the batteries charge, then an actual indication of the battery being fully charged.

Radio quit playing now car wont start cannot shift into nutrial


The first thing to check is the battery, if the battery is dead try jump starting it with another car or use another battery, if it then starts you should have the alternator tested, most autoparts stores do this at no charge, it may be that the alternator is not keeping the battery charged.

Just got a swagger and it wont keep charge. it shuts off in 10 min. what do I do? Also there is no screan how do I know if its charged right?


you have to make sure the player is off when ur charging it. or you can listen to it while its charging to make sure its not playing and charging at the same time. i had the same problem too. so just keep the ear phones plugged in and make sure its not playing while charging. and keep it turned off while charging. and you should be good. it will them play for like 1 to 2 hours. you might be thinking how can you turn it off and it still charges. but once the red light is on that means the computer regonizes it and its charging. good luck. facebook.com/kedisha queen-king

My phone keeps shutting off and wont charge wat is causing this?


Try shutting off the phone and taking out the battery. Blow air onto the battery and around the phone, and then put it back together. Try That. Sorry if it dosent work.

My 1997 mazda 626 lx isnt charging right it wont start after its shut off its worse at night when I need the head lights


Sounds like your altinater is going out. Take your car to auto zone or one of those places. They can check it for you. Once your altinater goes out you wont be driving any where cause thats what keeps your battery charged and keeps your car running. Do that today!
