Charged my new nuvi 760. Unit will not turn on. Followed the steps in manual, held the on button to the left for 8 seconds, then turned it on and nothing. If I plug it back into the wall charger the Garmin name comes up for 2 0r 3 seconds, then goes black, back to the name, etc.

To power the unit back on, press the "Mode" and "Reset" buttons at the same time. Let go of those two buttons, press the power button, and the unit will turn back on."

Turned the Nuvi 750 off while searching for a POI and now it will not turn back on.


Hi,
Slide the power key to the left for 8 seconds plus, to reset it
or 30 seconds plus, to try calibrate the screen.
Regards.

Won't switch on


I had a similar situation. My 760 could not be switched on, despite a fully charged battery. The hard reset procedure (power button held for 8 seconds) fixed my problem.

Nuvi 760 will not turn on !!


I just had the same issue, after using the unit for 11 months.
WOULD NOT power on... and i freaked.
This is what solved it, no matter how strange it sounds...
I held the 'power switch' to ON for 20 secs, then it came on again.

I hope this works for you as well!

Nuvi 760 suddenly stopped working - will not turn back on


Try holding the power slide to the left and holding it there for 8 seconds. If that doesn't work, try charging it via your PC & USB cable. If that doesn't work, try a mains charger if you have one (I had to do this with mine). Good luck!

Garmin 760 : no satellite signal found at all even in open space


Have you tried performing a full Reset? Slide the Power key to the LEFT, and hold for at least 8 seconds. Then turn the nuvi back on while outside in clear view of sky. It should take < 1 minute to calculate a position.

If not, you may have a defective unit in need of repair.

Hi!

Have you tried reading the manual?
Availlable here:
http://www8.garmin.com/support/userManual.jsp?market=4&subcategory=41&product=010-00657-10

Suggest you try the following:
Holde the on/off switch in the on (left) position for 8 seconds, then release.
The unit should now power up as usual.
It worked for me!

Good Luck!
