    Garmin splash screen comes on and stays on until you let go of the power button. Will not turn on even when plugged in.

Make sure the fuse assembly did not fall out of the 12 v plug. Normal driving produces vibration, which causes things with screw assemblies to fall apart. I found the fuse, spring and positive contact in the bottom of the bag where I keep the Garmin. When I reassembled the power plug, the Garmin now works fine.

I had the same problem recently... What I did was open the front casing and hit the reset button under the cover, then it turned on while plugged into the car adapter.

Totally dead, replaced ac adaptor, which was dead too, did not help. still dead.

Hello, I am thinking that your battery needs to be replaced as well. Possibly because of the stress it took from your ac adapter issues. So, to check to see if the issue at hand is now your battery... 1) UNPLUG THE AC ADAPTER FROM THE LAPTOP. 2) REMOVE THE BATTERY. 3) PLUG THE AC ADAPTER BACK INTO THE LAPTOP 4) TURN IT ON.
If the battery was now the issue, your laptop should have turned on at this point.. If it did NOT turn on, then there is a different issue that we should troubleshoot. Let Me Know, ok?

Laptop wont turn on

Try removing the battery and plug in the power adapter and then power on your laptop. If this doesn't work, put the battery back in and plug in the power adapter and try turning it on. If that doesn't work then take the power cable out and try with only the battery. Try in this order and see if it comes back up, if not, you may have some dead hardware.

C340

First, be sure you are outside, in the open when making this diagnosis. If, when outside in clear view, you still have problems, try this...

Have you tried a hardware RESET? The button is hidden behind the front panel, which snaps off by a fingernail slot located directly under the GARMIN logo on the front panel.

* Use caution removing and reinstalling the front panel... it's somewhat fragile... wiggle it a little to get it off.

Press where it says "Press to Reset", hold for a second or two. Charge the unit with the car cord or USB cable, then try to turn it on again.

Once you can get the unit to (hopefully) turn ON, you should run all updates (there may be several!) using Garmin's Webupdater. (Connect to computer with USB cable first.)

Hope this helps!!

I have a sony vio vgn-c140g and it wont turn on

You say your battery doesn't work? Try removing it and then plugging it in with your AC Adapter. If it boots now it's because of the dead battery. If it doesn't check whether it boots with just the battery installed. It's either your adapter or your battery.

If it boots without battery, but with adapter --> dead battery.
If it boots without adapter but with battery --> broken adapter. (this can have multiple reasons, loose internal contacts, insufficient power, short circuit)

If none of the above is the case then you should contact Sony for there might be a problem with it's internal power system.
If one of the above is the case however check your warranty and get either the defective part replaced. (or if possible check with someone else's first).

I hope this helps, please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

Dead Garmin StreetPilot c340

The battery usually has a small charge when arriving from the factory, but it can die before it is received. You should charge this by plugging it into the car or the computer.

Charging unit with AC adapter

I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

Garmin c340 went black and can't get it working

The battery was completely dead. I must not have had the cord plugged in to my lighter, or maybe it wasn't sitting properly on the cradle, and it was running on battery power. I found that when I charged it by the computer, it was ok. It is working with no problems, now.
