    I have the same problem, My Power button does not work. I was able to plug it in to a computer and unplug and was able to use it on the battery. Once I unplug and use it on battery, the only way I can power it off is by pressing the Reset button on the back.

    Can any one help me determine what would be the problem?

    While turning off the power button, it made a strange noise. When, I tried to turn it back on, the screen remaines blank. It does not go on when plugged into the car charger or the wall outlet charger.

    My Garmin was working and it wasn't being used for several months and when I needed it the unit would not turn on. I put it on the charger over night and it still does not turn on. I saw a post to check with meter but what contacts are you talking about? I know 0 about electronics. I need detailed information.

    I have a Garmin Street Pilot C580 GPS. It won't turn on. I have tried charging it through car charger, computer, wall outlet charger . None of these seems to be working.

Dead Battery? That makes no sense at all. He mentioned he was running it off the battery - " I was able to plug it in to a computerGqrmin 350 GPS Receiver wont turn on - 1.gif and unplug and was able to use it on the battery. Once I unplug and use it on battery, the only way I can power it off is by pressing the Reset button on the back."

The fact of the matter is that there is a well known issue with Nuvi 350 Power switch. I haven't taken mine apart yet (also bad power switch), but most likely the switch is defective or the solder joints are broken.

Sounds like a dead battery.  Put a voltage tester on the contacts to see if there is any juice.  If the battery is bad it may appear to be charging but not accept the charge, this may also inerfere with the external power. Also check the fuse in the tip of the cigarette adapter plug.  Have you tried powering up when the USB is plugged into your computer?
