This is a common problem with the Nuvi series. The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.

The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down the button, the solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually break off the main PC board. This is a design flaw and could have been easily prevented by wedging a small piece of plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support.

Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.

I have repaired many of these before and the repairs I make prevent this from happening again.

If you would like for me to reasonably repair your GPS, please email me at KS3R at sharc dot net.

My kocaso tab wont turn on whille charging


Please make sure the tablet is charged for at least 4-6 hours. Also, make sure the correct button is being used, oftentimes we hear the back or home button has been used in error. If the issue persists, you can try performing a power reset. There should a power reset button near the charging port. It looks like a tiny hole. While plugged into the charger, use a paperclip to push the button inside this hole for 3-5 seconds. If it turns on, please allow it to charge for 4-6 hours before using it. If you leave it on the charger for longer than the allocated time, you will go back to having the same problem as before. If the power does not come on, please leave it plugged up for 4-6 hours then disconnect it from the power and turn it on.

If your tablet does not have the reset button: With the tablet plugged into the charger, hold the power button for 10 seconds then click the volume up once. If it turns on, please allow it to charge for 4-6 hours before using it. If you leave it on the charger for longer than the allocated time, you will go back to having the same problem as before. If the power does not come on, please leave it plugged up for 4-6 hours then disconnect it from the power and turn it on.

Why my computer wont turn on?


Sometimes there is a reset switch on the bottom of the laptop, which I'm assuming is the type of computer you're referring to. Check the bottom for the word reset with a little hole by it. With the charger plugged in and working, push the reset switch for just a second or two with a small pen or pointy object, then press your main power button and see if that works.

Why wont my fuel pump work unless i run hot wire from battery i have already changed relay and saftey shut off


Check the inertia switch near the ebrake pedal. It is a switch with a button on the top just push the button. This switch is black with either a white or red square button on the top. It is usually between the clutch pedal and e-brake pedal mounted on the fire wall inside the truck.
