Question about GPX KCL8806DT 7 in. Portable Television

1 Answer

No sound gpx klc8806dt

The unit was out of use for 6months and was working 100% when it was stored in clean dry area. Now it powers up, tv functions, radio tuner works, remote works, all funtions except sound. When changing modes, or powering up, I can hear a faint hum thru the speakers. The remote switchs from mute to sound, and the speaker symbol is displayed on display window. Any body got a clue??? Thank You!

Hello, i have fixed a few of these units, Mainly the problem is, is the crappy design inside, take out all of the screws from the bottom of the unit, be careful when pulling the top cover off cause the battery unit on the side is detachable and could be stuck and u can rip the wires off the system board. now you will see the 2 speakers, take a razor blade and carefully cut away the glue that holds the speakers in, and there may be little white plates with 2 screws that hold the speaker down also. Now take the speakers out and test them on a home entertainment center or a cd player that has red and black connectors for speakers in the back. See if they work first, if they do carefully reconnect the speakers to the motherboard and reseat the connectors back in with ease. try the unit again. if it doesnt work check the solder joints where the connectors attach to the motherboard, sometimes they will come loose. From my expierence with these units is they tend to jam the speakers inside so tight that they eventually stop working, so be sure to only use the connectors to hold them in.

The best solution is to clean the power button socket area.
TV tuner cleaner would be a good start with a razor to clean the edges.... 100% isopropyl alcohol. * Make sure you unplug the printer prior to any cleaning and allow at least 1 hour for the cleaner to dry.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 650 with an unresponsive screen...can anything be done? Thanks


Power off your Garmin 660 unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
To back up your Garmin.
  • From the garmin drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  • After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Garmin, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  • On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Garmin where they are actually stored

  • This should reset your Garmin then I would suggest updating your device at the Garmin site. I will attach a link.

    Try a hard reset,the Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
    1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
    2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
    3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
    Perform the Hard Reset:

    *Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
    1. Power the unit off.
    2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
    3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
    4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences
    Then make sure the unit is fully charged,then go to the Garmin site and register your product. Then download Garmin Updater and connect your unit with a usb cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

    How do I reset my garmin 885? I would like to reset to the original stage. Please help.


    This procedure has been known to (but doesn't always) delete your favorites so back them up beforehand: From the nuvi drive, copy x:/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx to your backup location. After the hard reset, copy current.gpx back to the same folder on the nuvi but rename it temp.gpx (important). On the next power cycle, the favorites will be read from temp.gpx into the non-user accessible memory area on the nuvi where they are actually stored (current.gpx is only a shadowed backup of your favorites)

    Power the unit off. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. Reset all your location settings and user preferences.

    If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.

    Try the Hard Reset procedure outlined in this tip.

    Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W Freeze at Loading Maps?
    Does it lock up or stop working?

    This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them.

    A hard reset (or Clear All User Data)has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior after firmware updates. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit. It's also one of the first things that Garmin will have you do when contact tech support regarding quirky unit behavior.

    Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

    The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

    1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
    2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
    3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will beread from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on theNuvi where they are actually stored.
    Perform the Hard Reset:

    *Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

    1. Power the unit off.
    2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
    3. Install the battery.
    4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
    5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
    6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

    Ifpossible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


    You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 205 and 205W.

    I hope that helps.

    No picture or sound on tv


    This sounds like a power supply problem. Check for a blown fuse in the unit. If there is no blown fuse then the power supply might have a shorted or open component in it. Check for the blown fuse first if the fuse is not blown or it can not be fixed by changing the fuse then the next culprit is the power supply, you will have to have a qualified TV technician do this.

    I hope this helps

    Have you opened it first and looked for a blown fuse. I suggest you unplug the unit and first look for a blown fuse. If this does not help, go to the retailer or the store where you purchaced the unit and see who they send them to for repair. Good Luck
