Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) Was the device turned OFF "manually" - the last time it was removed from the vehicle?

2) Can you try pushing and HOLDING (for up to 45 seconds) the power switch - WITHOUT connecting the device to any power source - and see if the screen comes ON?

Please use the REPLY box below.

Hi again,

I see it has been a few days and I haven't seen a response on this page, so I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue OR if the issue was resolved?

I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.

Thanks, ***** *****
