Hi Thank you thats a good thing. In your case the power button circuitry has a problem, its not actually in the switch but in an IC the problem resides.Since your Garmin is covered for 1 full year you can simply exchange it depending on where you bought it from or contact Garmin warranty for this and they will handle this for you. They are very good efficient and usually very quick with a solution for you. I would call them for faster service.Please call: (###) ###-####or(###) ###-####ere is their website: me know if you need anything further. and please remember to rate my service to you today.Have a wonderful day!tech Michael
