    Default Dead zumo 550...

    A few days ago my Garmin zumo 550 after almost 4 years just died.I've done everything to wake it up but still nothing.
    Is there any solution(exept $150 that garmin asks)to bring it back to life?

    Have you tried holding the power switch on for > 30 seconds. (Remove Memory Card.)
    Release and Plug in USB Cable.
    I fixed a 3790 like this on Tuesday.

    No power at all.No chance to put it back to life.I have tried EVERYTHING.It is totaly dead.Next step, i will try to replace the internal battery.That it will be my last action.If this is not works i will throw it away.
    Sorry for being angry,but i've paid 450 euros 4 years ago and i didn't expect that...

    Sometimes Garmin has Exchange Plans on refurbished units.
    You hand in your dead unit + some Euros and they give you a Working Unit.
    Contact Garmin Company before trashing the unit.

    After a lot of searching in the net i have tried everything to put back to life my zumo.The solution that solved my problem was a short circuit at the internal battery, and boom, the zumo is back in business.When i say short i mean short.Just touch the two wires that are connected to the battery for a second.

    UNSCREW THE 8 SCREWS WITH A T6 SCREWDRIVER-LEAVE THE BATTERY ON

    OPEN CAREFULLY AND UNSCREW THE 5 SCREWS WITH A PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO REMOVE THE SCREEN-IF YOU WANT JUST OPEN THE TWO CLIPS AND REMOVE THE TAPES CAREFULLY(IN THE CIRCLE)

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    LIFT THE PLATE.DONT REMOVE THE EXTERNAL BATTERY CABLE(RED STAR).USE A SMALL SCREWDRIVER OR A CABLE TO SHORT CIRCUIT THE BATTERY(GREEN CIRCLE) ON THE TWO CONTACTS ON YOUR LEFT.JUST FOR A SECOND.NO MORE.

    AND AT LAST...LIGHT!!!!
