Hello Everyone! I got a question my 1450LMT just went black all I get is the Garmin logo and it flashes every now and then, no sound and the computer won't recognize it and I had some routs that I want back is there hope this nuvi can be fixed???
Did you try to do a reset?
it don't go past the Garmin logo Iv turned it on and off trying to see if I get lucky with my finger on the lower right corner but nothing!
Is the battery fully charged?
would be my suggestion, put it on charge and see what happens.
Matter of fact I was told to charge it with the wall charger and left it charging way over 24 hrs but it does the same thing, I imagine that when it flashes its like it wants to turn on cause its like it starts over I don't know?
tried to hold the on switch for about 15 seconds and see what happen.
Yup nothing think maybe I need to replace the screen?
Try first to keep it running till battery will be totally depleted. It shouldn't turn on anymore. Than plug it in and charge for 3-4 hours, than try to turn it on again.
But if unit is on warranty it's better to send it to Garmin. It doesn't look like it's screen problem. If computer doesn't recognize unit it suggest problems with software or hardware of unit. Even with dead screen unit should be available after connecting to computer as it is switching into data mode automatically.
So I will not bring good news. Garmin service can be only solution. Just remember to ask them to transfer Lifetime Maps (if you have them) to new unit, as they usually send replacement instead of repairing unit send to them. Your personal data will be lost.
Remove the micro SD card if installed before trying to start it.
