Hi there,Can you try pressing firmly on the power button, and also try pressing it at an angle?It may not be making good contact.

Hi Pete
Tried that, no response

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Ok, then some diagnostic testing will be required.Do you have any test equipment available, or are you looking for somewhere to send it for repair?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have any such equipment, but I have tried connecting the satnav via USB to my PC and it doesn't show on the 'computer' screen
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
It will not show on the PC unless it is powered on.I suspect a fault with the power circuitry inside the satnav, which will require a repair.How old is it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is about 5 years old
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
The average lifetime of a satnav is 3-5 years, and for the cost of repair (£50-75)you could get an equivalent up to date model.
