It sounds like the built in backup battery has failed, this is a different power source to the main battery and is used to power the memory when the device is powered off.
When you switch the receiver on it should have certain data (Almanac and Emphemeris) available from the last time it was used, this speeds up signal acquisition. Without the information the unit has to download the data from the satellites which can type around 15 minutes. Not a lot you can do to be honest, unless there is a specific reason you want to keep the device look at replacment of the GPS receiver - Mike
