I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question.

How old is the Orgeon 550t?

It seems that the firmware is corrupted and is causing the device to suddenly shut down.
If you are unable to connect it to a computer and reinstall the firmware, e.g. from backup files, then it will need to be returned to Garmin for repair.
