    When it is connected to the computer, do you still get the blank screen after boot up? Try a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds.

    Also, it may be a symptom of a failing battery.

    Yes still get the blank screen when connected, I've tried resetting it connected and not connected. I would think that it may be a battery problem as it has been on charge overnight and still has the problem.... is it possible to change the battery ?

    @Chris-Noc

    In UK
    "AO">Start 20, 2GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3 Eol
    "AP">Start 20, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
    "AY">Start 20, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

    in US
    "AP">VIA 1400 / 1405, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
    "AY">VIA 1410 / 1415, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

    So unless the serial number of your START 20 does not start with "AO" (which is now obsolete ) then you can get a battery here
