Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Remove the charger from the Garmin and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the unit.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

Hi Richard. I just put the batteries back into the unit and, to my surprise, this time the unit turned on. I tried every option before I contacted you ie, changed the batteries, held the on button on continuously, pressed the on button quickly and nothing seemed to work. Every time the garmin logo would come on and then disappear to a blank screen. I could not connect it to the laptop through USB as it would not turn on.
The unit is a Garmin GPSMap 62 Handheld GPS D2202 and was purchased in April 2011.
I just got a message 'Trouble finding satellites. Continue searching'. I pressed yes.
The unit is still on at the moment.

Ok, take it outside and tell me i it can now find a satelite please

It appears to be locating satellites. It has a set of co-ordinates and a number of green icons with numbers on them blinking.

Perfect, it was a reception issue, you just needed to be outside, but it should now be ok, glad we got it solved

Do I need to update firmware or software?

No, that was not the issue, it was just a build up of residual power.
