The screen brightness could be turned down or the display itself is defective. Even if it was turned down all the way it should be somewhat visible, so if the display is completely blank, I would suggest that the LCD display has become defective.

Black screen but sound and touch screen beeps seem to be ok.


Most likely a defective LCD display. If the unit was dropped, the LCD ribbon cable might have pulled slightly out of the connector on the PCB board.

What is wrong with the screen when it says to Touch Dot?


You can just use a plastic pen or anything with a nib to press it, instead of using your finger. After pressing 5 to 6 times it should work

Nuvi 2555mt lost voice


First, do you hear beeps when you press a selection on the screen? If yes, then your speaker is OK and the audio circuits are OK in the unit. Make sure that you have a voice selected in the voice menu. Some units have an audio mixer screen and provide different volume settings for navigation (voice) and system (beeps). maybe the volume for the voice (navigation) is set to off. If you don't hear any beeps when you touch the screen AND you don't hear a voice, make sure that the sound isn't set to be muted. If the sound isn't muted, you may have a defective speaker.

My Garnin Nuvi 760 has stopped responding to touch screen. It starts and eventualy opens a map but nothing I touch on the screen will respond.


The problem is probably with touchscreen (a thin film on screen)

You can try order a replacement touchscreen on ebay and replace it yourself
Tip: order a couple of them, they are cheap but extremely fragile

I can't get an update on my nuvi gps 200 for maps, even the map of Mexico.


the Nuvi 200 has an extremely small memory, less than 1gb. The US maps for the nuvi 200 only include the lower 48 for that reason. Not sure how large the map file is for Mexico but your only safe option is to contact Garmin direct.

Nuvi 200 displays Garmin screen but does nothing else. Why? It does not change the screen at all. It has't been used very much.


Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

How do I know that the GPS is charging. The light is green when pluged in. Should it not be red then go green Lorraine


On a Nuvi 200W, when you plug in the charger, the battery status icon should go away indicating that you are no longer on battery power and that you are now running on an external power source. You should also hear a beep when you plug in the charger.

To go into charge mode, move the on/off switch to the left like you would be going to turn it off but only hold it on long enough until you hear it beep or the screen goes black and says "Battery Charging". When the battery is fully charged, touching the screen, it should say "Battery Charge Complete". If its not fully charged, touching the screen, it will say that it's still in charge mode.
