this is not good..
there is no point it trying to talk you through what it might or could be wrong with it.your best bet is to get some one to look at it for you.
mind you it sounds like the laser lens can not read the cd or dvd that you put in.
something has come lose or moved inside.

Check settings on your nav unit. Maybe power button is disabled and set to power on when external power is applied.

From the Garmin troubleshooting page:

Non-Responsive Screen
You cannot control the device using the touch screen.
Dirty Screen
It may seem mundane, but dust dirt and other particulates can greatly reduce the function of the touch screen, follow these simple steps to clean your screen:
If your device has a screen protector, remove it.
Spray a bit of water or formulated spray onto a microfiber cloth.
Wipe thoroughly.
Using a dry microfiber cloth, immediately dry the surface.
Replace the screen protector with a new one if desired.
Resetting the Device Without the Screen
Follow the steps in the Factory reset subsection to reset your device without use of the touch screen."

Or, if the screen is broken, you can order a replacement screen. There are guides online for replacing them.

*In the meantime, if you have a smartphone, there are many apps that you can use as a GPS / mapping tool.

'Avoid Motorways' must be set in Avoidances, it is the only explanation, but there are also settings for 'Shortest Route' and 'Fastest Route'. It may be 'Shorter' not to go on the motorway.

You can also try resetting the unit and make sure you have the most up to date firmware and software.

specs, manual and support here. See page 19, Navigation Preferences and Avoidances.

Turn it on without being connected to the charger and check out the battery indicator - that will give you a bearing on battery condition.

Check with Garmin to see if there is a way of resetting the electronics to factory defaults. Also check with them to see if they have software for you to do a clean install if necessary

That unit does not have an MP3 player. In order to get that functionality, you would need to purchase a device that does have that functionality.
