    9.23.08 The screen went blank except for a thin vertical line. Nothing worked to change or shut it off except to remove batteries. A friend had an extra eTrex Legend he bought as a kit for the software and sold it to me. On 9.27.08 his orginal went blank the same way. Today 9.30.08 the one he sold me did it. No that is three within a week. What is up!!!?

    GPS 5 will power up, search for signal and then go black with line in either middle screen or bottom of screen. Unit has been working great for two years.

Thanks for the help.. Disabled the WAAS and has been working great for last two days. Accuracy went from 3 feet to 14 feet but that's fine for what I'm using it for. Thanks for the help.

It's been rumored to turn off WAAS, as it seems to be a new satellite communication problem within the V. So far so good with mine. It appeared the screen was dead at first.

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Screen goes blank except a thin line


There is a firmware upgrade from Garmin that appears to address this problem for units still running Version 3.2 or earlier. If your problem only occurs when WAAS is enabled, you might try upgrading. To find what firmware version you have, from the main menu: Setup, System, then select the (options) icon on the top row, to the left of the 'X'.

Tv screen goes blank with a line across middle


Hi Andy.

This is a straight forward repair & wont be expensive.
The problem is either dry joints on frame chip or component going thermal and failing at a certain temperature.
Cost for repair will be between £35.00 to £55.00 ask for a quote first.
