Could also be a faulty battery, or the battery is completely discharged that it is FLAT! - if this is the case then it will need replacing :(

I had the same issue where a 520 unit had not been used for a year or two, but the battery switch was set to on. I was lucky, i managed to get a desktop charger off eBay for a couple of quid and it charged the 520 no probs. It could have been a dead unit, but the little device has a spark of life still left in it! :)

Try the battery switch as suggested and leave it on charge for a couple of hours - It may work, it may not.

You might only have to buy a replacement battery!!!

Hope this helps.

Check the battery switch on the back. you will need a pen. Mine does the same thing. I believe this switch has to be set to ON for it to work. At least mine wont turn on unless the switch is turned on.

My navman icn520 will not pick up satalite

go inside your 520 and you may see the plugs or the gps have come off this sometimes happens when you have knocked the unit. the wires are attached to the rear cover and run down and under a piece sticky tape check and see if they have fallen off.
