    This just happened today. Shuts off with just a black line remaining. The line will go away once the batteries are taken out. I tried using the car adapter for power, but still had the same problem.

I had the same problem with my 76S. Called Garmin to send it back for service. They said it was a problem with new WAAS signals that causes the freeze/black line. Disabling WAAS using menu/system solved it for now. They are working on a software update Real Soon Now.

I just had this problem. The screen was blank, except for the direction and compass in the right hand corner, but the sound is still there. Seems to be a bug. I simply shot up a few people, went to the door, waited about 4 seconds without pushing the door, then just before the car came towards us, hit the square but to help push. Then it seemed ok. If you push from the start you may find the screen goes blank.

Screen goes blank after locating sattilites.


Accordingto Garmin, this problem can be fixed by disabling the WAAS feature in teh set up menu. There is an incompatibility between the old Garmin software and latest WAAS upgrades. Later software from Garmin is supposed to fix this problem.

Won't turn on or off screen is blank


I had this problem for about 3 hours except that it was a totally blank screen. Unscrew the back of it and take the battery out for about 10 seconds. Put the battery back and it should reset totally. Don't worry about the songs, they'll be fine.

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'.

Screen goes blank except for a verticle streak


I had the same problem (blank screen, vertical line). After speaking with Garmin, I was told to make sure I was using the latest software version, and to turn off the WAAS function. Disable it for now, because the WAAS signal, coming from the satellite, has changed, and Garmin has not yet published a remedy to correct this problem. A fix should be out in a software update, sometime in the future, hopefully. I also did the software update, to the latest version 4.0. The unit performs perfectly now, however, the accuracy is not quite as good, due to the lack of WAAS. Good Luck!!

Blank Screen on Garmin E-Trex Vista


The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

My screen is blank on all modes except playback and setup


If you can playback captured images ok but in capture mode your screen goes blank and taken shots are black then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty and has to be replaced. Nikon agent -if you can find one- will do this for you but it may be uneconomical repair on this entry level model.
