The device is about 4 years old.
The issue began today and it worked earlier in the day. ( Oct 30,2013)
This is my third try.
device was working then unplugged from car power source. about 15 minutes later plugged back in and nothing happened.
Has not been tested recently to see if it would operate on internal battery.
Hi again,Sorry for any trouble you may be having sending your responses back. OK - let's try the EASIEST thing we can try - as a FIRST STEP.Please disconnect the device from ANY power source, and then push and HOLD the power switch for up to 1 or 2 full minutes. If you see the screen come on, release the power switch.Yes, this sounds like a long time, but often these devices can go into a "sleep" or "low power" mode, and this is a "soft reset" that can get them out of that mode. Please give that a try and let me know your results.Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX(im)
held for more than 2 minutes and did not work
Used the USB cable to plug into the PC. The Garmin came on. I will leave it hooked up for an hour or more to recharge.
the center pin moves freely in and out.
I cannot see how the tip of the adapter I have can be unscrewed??
If the garmine charges up, would it be safe to assume that the problem is in the adapter or possible in the car power outlet?
The video was helpful. I have been successful in getting the fuse out and it looks ok as far as I can tell.
i will check the fuse for the car power outlet in the am.
check back with you later - thanks for your help.
