Probably the best first try would be to go to the Garmin FAQ's to see what they have to say. Garmin is very good with their tech support by phone as well.
It could be as simple as a dead battery..

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.

put your thumbnail under the silver faceplate above where it says garmin and on the right you will see a reset button. It will reset your garmin and you will not lose your information. Hope this helps.
