GO 5200 does not show the power sign when plugged-in, I have tried to reboot the device by holding the power button and also attempted to reset the device to factory setting with out success.

Please advise.

    Power status display on the NAV4 & Wi-Fi Connected devices....
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) button... On the Menu Screen top right is a battery status Icon
    Charging... Displays when Connected to a Power supply
    Full Charge... Displays when Connected or Not Connected Power supply
    Half Charge... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    Low Battery... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    One of the worst things you can do to a Lithium battery is to run it flat, so at a certain percentage of discharge (Unspecified)... The device will go into 'Power Saving Mode' the screen will dull, and the device will eventually turn itself off (Not Sleep)

    There is a Battery Status display available on the device's Status Screen
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound continue to hold the on/off button until the Black & White Status screen is shown.....
    If you are worrying about the device charging, you might consider one of these gadgets

    Simply plug the device into the USB socket and plug your lead into the USB Doctor, the device will display the Voltage and Power being used by your various USB devices
    I have one of each type they're only peanuts to buy, search Amazon/eBay for USB Doctor
