From technical experience, this indicates a broken display or display ribbon cable having become disconnected from the unit being dropped. The unit will have to be opened up to determine if the cable is loose or if the display has been damaged. The only way to determine if the display is bad is to substitute it with a known working display.

I have 5 white dotted lines running horizontally across my nuvi1490lmt. Does anybody know why this would be?


Yes, this is caused by a defective LCD display, There is nothing that you can do to make them go away. It is caused by a defective transistor in the LCD display logic that is either stuck on or off. The transistor controls a single horizontal line across the screen. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the display.

Nuvi Screen is messed up


Sorry to say but your screen is most likely damaged. You should never store a LCD display in the cold. First, the cold slows down the screen's response time... after all.... LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display.... what does "liquid" do when it's cold? Also, there is a chance that condensation develops inside from your car being cold and then heated when you drive it. Not good for electronic devices.

The screens can be replaced.

Display problems with nuvi 260


You may have to send in for service. A bad screen normally is not a good sign. Sorry.
If you are sure that the updates have been downloaded your only other option is:
Trying a full master reset:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To perform a Master Reset on the nuvi 260 series device: Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

Blank screen


I had the same problem, so I hit the side of the Garmin a few times. It works perfectly now. Something inside was unaligned and needed a little force to knock it into place. I didn't hit it HARD.
