This has happened to me a couple of times.  I’ve also had friends that have had this happen.  It is usually a pretty easy fix. 

This usually happens after charging.  You remove your Garmin from the docking station and it won’t turn back on.  Try pressing the Mode and Reset buttons at the same time and hold for a couple of seconds.  After that hit the Power button.  I’ve also hit the Mode, Reset and Power buttons at the same time and it booted right up.

This should be all it takes to get you up and running again.  No pun intended 🙂
