Garmin Street pilot question

My Garmin Street Pilot 2820 decided to take a nap on me. The unit was working flawlessly. Turn it off, go back to bike turn it on, and nothing. I figured fuse. No love there. Took it inside plugged it into AC adapter. Still no love.
FWIW, I read about (on the internet) a reset feature where you hold the menu and map buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds after you turn the switch on. Still no love. Not even sure that's a feature on these units.

Anyone here familiar with this fix, or can direct me to a solution? Internal fuse?

There is always the possibility that it just died.

Aren't the 2820's the ones with microdrives? Wasn't Garmin's best idea.

No microdrive,that was the older 2620.

The 2820 is equivalent to BMW Nav III and the last of the 26xx-28xx form factor.Has bluetooth and 3D imaging,similar to the Zumo 550.
Can accept the XM antenna and can play other downloaded audio and audio books.

Last of the the best MC GPS series Garmin produced other than the 276-478 series.

Yes. That's where I got my reset info. You seem to know your 2820s, do you know for a fact that this is correct? I like the 2820. I'm back to my 2610, which isn't a bad thing.

Can't say I'm 100 percent correct,as I don't own one,but the procedure is essentially identical to that on the 2610,BMW Nav 2 and Garmin 2730 all of which I own,or have owned.

I'd like to get this thing up and running. Haven't had any luck tracking down any repair gurus. Thanks for the info.

Thanks. Never owned one, but a friend has had several. They are familiar to him and he likes them.

When one dies, he looks on ebay and finds another. They seem to show up frequently.

I've never owned 2620, just 2610 and 2820.
We have two working 2610s and the 2820, which has a few more features that I like. 2820 not as easy to find. Hope I can get that one back up and at 'em.

I have a 2730 that I like and the screen was going out. I opened it up and cleaned it. It working now and hope it stays that way. If it ever goes out and I don't know what I would replaced it with.
