Soft Reset: Mode + Lap. Then power on.
Hard Reset: Power On + Enter (down on thumbstick)

Hopefully this will fix your problem.

    From Page 2 in the manual, reset the unit with
    pressing Mode & Reset/Lap.

    Or else you can change the language back to English:
    Menu > Settings > System > Language

Only screen is the garmin logo with the battery charge icon. When power button is pressed another icon appears for 20s: a picture of the garmin unit linked to a charger then back to the first screen.

Don't know if this will help but it might be worth trying, especially if you just did a software update. I have a 520 and it gets frequent software updates. After an update it ends up just showing the Garmin screen and seems to be bricked because nothing else works - even the off button doesn't work. The solution is to just let it sit showing the Garmin screen for five or ten minutes so it can process and load the new software which seems to take a long time. It eventually opens onto the main screen.

How do I re-calibrate my Garmin Nuvi 705 series. The touch screen isn't working properly.

Here is the procedure:

Nuvi 7xx Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Touch the screen anywhere and keep your finger there while moving the on/off switch to left (don't wait for Garmin logo to come up) and then quickly moving the switch the right (lock position). After a short while, you will reach the calibration screen. Go through the entire procedure of pressing each dot as it appears on the screen until it says "Done". More tips can be found here:

Garmin 705 - device not found by Training Center

Garmin has moved everything to Garmin Connect. Depending on your device, Training Center may or may not be supported anymore. You can go to the link to read more on Garmin Connect. Also, Garmin now uses Garmin Express to sync and update devices. I'll attach the link.

My garmin edge 705 suddenly can't switch on? Charging also nothing on screen. It's new, used less then 15 times.

Have you contacted garmin yet? If it is brand new its under warranty by them and they will send you an RMA number and take it in for repairs. Go to Garmins website at the top of the page click on My garmin log in with your user name and password. If you don't have an account set up then do so its free. Then contact Technical support either by email or by phone to make arrangements to get your repair. You may have to pay shipping one way to get it to them but from there your warranty should cover any repairs that are needed to your unit.

I hope this help you out if it does please say Yes on the page you received my response on. Thank you

Will the garmin edge 705 provide/ be able to produce a power watt measure during outdoor rides and what do i need to purchase to be able to get this information?

The 705 comes in multiple versions from basic that will give you heart rate to a team garmin version that has the cadence, speed, calories, etc. As for power meters the 705 is 3rd party compatible to show you watt measurements.
The following third-party ANT+Sport-enabled power meters are compatible with the Edge 705:
  • iBike
  • PowerTap
  • Quark
  • SRM
