SOURCE: Screen is out
A black screen, actually purple, means that a firmware upgrade was unsuccessful. You can try to fix it by reloading the firmware, but you are most likely not going to be successful using the USB 'binary'firmware that is available.
There is some 'text' HEX firmware available on the yahoo Explorist user group. To use it though, with your USB cable, you will need to make a small circuit with 1 chip. That site shows how to do it. I am in the process of doing that for an Explorist 400 for a friend. Others have said this is the only to recover such a lost GPS. I'll keep you informed of my success when it happens. I'll probably be sending the circuit/cable I build along to other friends but could possibly fix your for you if you like.

SOURCE: My eXplorist XL is locked up
Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.
"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...
Either FORMAT or SCAN... LET IT RUN!
After turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. Your system will immediately start to re-set itself.
If necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps..."
The only difference is that I had to load my SD card in the unit for it to work during the FORMAT.
My unit is NOW re-booting back to normal!
