The front bezel, the silver grey plastic piece with the Garmin name on it will lift off. Use a fingernail or a very thin tool to pry and lift it up. Behind that are 4 phillips head screws. Remove those and it comes right apart. Look at the board on the top before taking it all apart to see exactly how it goes back in, it's a tight fight and has to fit just right.
I came here looking for solution and tried the "press eraser in bottom right corner and turn on" but didn't work for mine BUT if you look at the face plate (the part on the front that says "Garmin",) just under the word "Garmin" you see a small indent in the plastic, useing your finger nail, gently pull upwards and the face plate will come up. Also, be gentle while pulling the face plate being careful not to break it. ( I advise that you use your nail and not anythng that might scratch the plastic if you are intending on returning the unit, cause they may suggest that you tampered with it and that "voids the warrenty") Anyway, look at the USB plug (above the ON button on the side) and you see a tab, press it and the unit will reset.
Seems to me that with all the problems Garmin has had with their units freezing up that I should have found this solution on the garmin site! To think that there are people who will throw there unit away because of this problem OR who will pay 150.00 bucks to get it fixed through Garmin.
Will the device turn on without the cord (on battery power)? If not then the cord is not the issue most likely. To make sure, you can use the USB cable and try charging via that hooked up to your computer (make sure computer is on). Give it sometime to charge (30mins) and see if you can get it to turn on. If this doesn't work, I think the next best thing is to contact Garmin support.
