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

Try unplugging the Nuvi device, and leaving it without power (the battery removed also, if it is easy for your to do so) for at least 2 hours.

See if that clears up the problem. If it does not, then you probably have a 'dead' device and it will need either repair or replacement.

If it is fairly new, then its repair might be covered by Garmin and done at their expense under warranty terms.
