Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I'm sorry to say that you may have a defective Garmin device. And at two years old, it is undoubtedly out of warranty, it's safe to say.

However: has the device been left idle, unused and uncharged, for some time during its disuse ?
If so, the battery may have gotten weak, if not gone dead. See if, plugged into the charger (if it is the type of charger that plugs into the device itself), the screen lights up. If it does, replace the battery.
