Repair 376c power board

The 376c finally stopped charging. New batteries do not charge and I'm down to one full Battery left. I would like to think it's due to the firmware update that I applied a couple days ago, but it doesn't even power on with the power cord plugged in. That makes me believe that the power board inside is bad. Does anyone have a line on circuit boards for the 376c or a repair shop that still has parts (since Garmin stopped making parts last year)?

Thanks!

Best I can suggest is to call Garmin and let them know their is still great demand for x76 units to be refurbished.

I may be wrong but I think Garmin charges a flat $200 for repairs. However, you can get them repaired here:

Thanks DRZ! Garmin has stopped servicing the 376c. However, I do love the unit, so I'll contact the repair folks you linked to. Updates to follow.

That is an excellent resource!
I often wondered why anyone wouldn't have a GPS repair shop and could service the *76 workhorse units.

Ugh
