This sounds like a Garmin fix but try this before giving up.
First shut the unit off and place your thumb like in this picture and keep it there with some medium pressure -

This gives you this screen - choose yes - -
Then CHARGE with a WALL unit - - for 4 hours - It must be a WALL unit - -88b9a94.jpg

Select YES and charge it up - if it still doesn't work - then I would give up and send it to Garmin

Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight. 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.

I cannot get my Garmin nuvi 255w to turn on even when plugged into it's power source - the car charger or the indoor plug in charger. There is no display, just a black screen.


Try a master reset. Hold the power switch to the left and hold for 10 seconds and release. You may also have a bad USB charging port. A common problem with units with USB only connectors.

Have a phone charger 12 volt that fits and charges the nuvi 200 but with it plugged in it wont show anything but a computer and nuvi on screen. unplug and it works but only for a while til needs a new...


thats because the phone charger is wired different to the gps charger , u need a genuine charger, if when pluged into pc it takes longer to charge, best to have gps turned off while charging from pc..... if it still does not work/ hold charge battery in unit gone , caused by being in active for over 3 months

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

Garmin 200w goes into usb mass storage mode when pluged to charge


Steps:
1) Disconnect the nuvi from the charging cable.
2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.
3) Plug in the power cable.
4) Click "Exit." The nuvi will reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

Charging doesn't display map when charging


I learned that with the unit off - hold the on button down - don't release it. A PRE-BOOT MODE message will appear at the bottom and may flash. Continue holding down the start button. The first time I did it a series of dots came on the screen and I was instructed to touch each one. After that it started as normal. I plugged into a wall charger and but git the pc and nuvi icons again. I repeated the process - holding the on button on and let the PRE-BOOT MODE appear and kept holding but this time a different message came on and then the PRE-BOOT MODE appeared again. I let it go and took the unit to my car and plugged it into the Garmin car charger and it worked as it used to - normal. However, when I plugged it back in the house to the wall charged I got the pc and nuvi icon again. It appears that I am using the wrong wall charger as a previous writes stated. But the nuvi still worked in the car plugged into the nuvi charger. I hope this helps.
