Question about Garmin nuvi 260W GPS Receiver
Before you can detect if there is a problem with your garmin nuvi, You need to carry out some tests. First you need to check your battery, then you check your charger, then you check the device itself to know where the problem is from and how to solve them.
First test is the battery, try out a friends well tested battery into the device and power it on, if it comes on, then it means the battery of your device is either weak or dead, try to charge it on another device then power it on to see if it will come on. If it comes on, then the battery is alright and if it does not come on, then it means the battery is bad and you need to replace it.
Next test is for you try out your charger on another device to see if it will charge the device, if it charges the device, then it means it is alright and if it does not charge the device, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.
The last test is for you to connect your garmin nuvi to a computer and power it on to see if it will come on. If it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something.
After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell where the problem is from and fix it at the same time.,
Hope this information was helpful to you.
