Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

No display on the unit even when plugged in the car charger.

I worked the switch back and forth with no results. The unit hasn't been used in about a month. The charger led does so power.

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.

My Garmin Nuvi 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

I just bought a dual xdvd9101 indash dvd player and cant get the brake bypass to work


However, some units use different methods. Some require seeing a pulse (i.e., power-ground-power-ground-etc.), resulting in the annoying need of pushing the e-brake a few times before your video will pop up. This can generally be recreated by using a 3-prong switch (you can get one at AutoZone). Connect it backwards -- the ground to power, power to ground, and the "Load" to the Parking Brake wire on the back of the radio. Flip the switch back and forth a few times and sometimes the video will pop up.
Some fancier units cannot be cheated. They use an internal gyro mechanism that detects movement.
Some even feature bypass codes. By pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote then entering in a code it will permanently allow video.
Be good.

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.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

These units are known for having bad "operation units", which consists of the switch that selects camera or vcr and the zoom unit. If you try quickly switching back and forth between cam and vcr and at least get a flash on the display, that is problem. Also, you can try slowly moving the switch (very slowly) between cam and vcr and awtaching to see if the power LED comes on at all. I have replaced many of the operation units on this unit.

Where can i get the manual for my cellphone (Sanyo 8500) coz I can't find where the wall charger plugs into????


Just next to the volume button at the top right. It is covered by a rubber sheath. It is the same slot for the microsd and the charger.

See the video on THIS page for more details.
