I removed the bezel off front, saw the "reset" position and pressed it. It came on for a second. Pressed and help down for a second and this time came up long enough to tell it was working. I now have it charging on my computer - thanks for the tips! would not have know the bezel would come off or that there was a reset function under it.

I had this same problem for a few weeks, contacted Garmin and was surprised at how simple the solution was!

On your car charger, unscrew the part that goes into the lighter- counter clockwise--be careful because there are peices stacked on top of eachother. Once opened, you should find a long glass fuse. Just replace that fuse, and it works like a beauty! (I bought a 5 pack for like 3 dollars at auto zone).

Before this I had done all sorts of resets & all, and this actually fixed my problem!

Good luck!

I pluged in my old garmin with a new cord. the new cord when i pluged it in it tould me to update. but my old cord will work the garmin fine. my garmin is a nuvi 255w


Hello,

Is this the USB data cable or is it the vehicle power cable?
Is it possible that you may have the wrong cable for the nuvi 255W?
The proper data cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.
The proper vehicle power cable is part number 010-10723-06.

We have a Garmin StreetPilot c330. Wife used other day and said it quit working and the charger got hot. I had pluged it in and screen powered up due to her having to use my 1990 Mazda to make sure it...


Hello,

the problem shouldn't be from the battery, but it should be from the unit itself.

You can take it out for repairs or better still, replace it if you are able to.

Take care.

Quit working


Could be your power plug in. That was the first thing to fail on mine.

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


The mini-USB jack needs to be either resoldered or replaced. When the jack is loose, you will not be able to charge the internal battery. The jack becomes loose from overuse. The jack needs more mechanical support to the pronted circuit board. I have fixed this problem many times.

Dead unit


My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00

Garmin nuvi


I had this same problem.  Just lift up the antenna on the back, hold the reset button for 3 seconds, and then plug it in to an external power source.  Mine started right back up after just going black one day while driving and not turning back on until i did this.
