    My unit won't turn on. I had it fully charged, the battery is internal and not able to be removed. I turned the unit off and then tried to turn it back on... nothing. I plugged the unit in to my car charger and also my wall charger, still the unit did not respond. Should I just return it? I got the unit one week ago so it is still under warranty. I also tried resetting it to no avail. Thanks.

    It worked first thing in the morning when I entered a new location and saved it. Then I turned the unit off. I tried to turn it on and enter another address but it would not turn on. We are experiencing severe lightening/thunder storms. Could that have an effect on it?

    My c330 stopped charging while I was driving. I thought the plug had wiggled loose so I thought I would wait until I stopped driving and then check the plug. Then when the battery apparently went dead it shut off and won't restart.

    Noticed my 660 was not charging. I cannot turn it on. Nothing, it just seem to be dead. I found out that the power cord was in good working order, but still could not charge my nuvi 660. Purchased a new cord and still made no difference. Tried to reset, but still nothing.

    how to turn it on

  • mom-ontherun Sep 02, 2008

    Unknown to me the car fuse that powers the GPS was blown. As a result my c330 battery went dead. It died while trying to find my way home. Now it won't do anything. I've tried plugging it into a good plug. It won't charge, turn on or anything.... I've only had it 8 months.

    My unit is 10 days out of warranty. I have the same problem.

    Have any of you gotten help from Garmin? Sure is a lot of money to spend for something that doesn't last more than a year.

    off. Now, won't turn on, get no response at all with it on either
    the car charger or the USB charger. Maybe it needs reset?

    Same thing happened to mine. Problem is I don't have the receipt. It's about 10-11 months old. Should I contact Garmin itself. And if so how much are we talking about for the repair?

Battery wont stay charged

If the alternator is good and the battery is new, then something is draining the battery while it's parked. In the old days people left their headlights, radio or something on and this drained the battery. Now a days this is not as big a problem with 5 minute timers that turn off lights if you forget. I would take it back to whomever did the alternator work for an answer. How old is the battery? You can take it to see if it can't hold a charge any longer. In my experience, most batteries don't seem to hold a charge after about two years. Did anyone do some custom work in your car that requires electricity? It could be this extra stuff is draining the battery.

I have htc windows 8x phone. My phone wont charge! i plug it in and the red charging battery icon doesn't appears, but it wont turn on no matter how long i charge it. i just got my phone 5 days ag

I think you have damaged your charging pin in the phone by mistake either by dropping the phone or while taking the cord out or inserting. I think the best way to get this fixed will be to go show it to the store that you bought it from/microsoft store. Hope this helps. All the best.

Will not turn on. this mp3 player has been on the charger all day

it may happen that the battery itself is brocken!!because it is over charged you said that its been charged all day...that might be the problem because if its over charged then theres a possibility that it wont be turned on or wont work..try changing the battery and try to turn it on..
