Hi Ken, Unfortunalty it's about 90% certain you need a new screen . Its not economical to fit a "new" one as they are very expensive so its best to look out for a used but broken tomtom on Ebay. Make sure you buy one with a good screen though. Swapping the screen isn't too difficult for someone with some Electronic DIY skills but you will need the special 'star' screwdrivers ( often known as Torx ) sets to get into the casing . Once inside , its fiddly but do-able. You should only pay out about £20 max for a broken TomTom , if you don't see any at that price , wait a few days and you will see something eventually. I might be able to help you as I do have several broken tom's here but with good screens , however it depends what model you have. If you are in UK , let me have some contact / email and we can get in touch if you want to go that route. Good Luck. ....

Gps screen not working


Hi your problem can be caused by any fuse that supplements the power to screen check voltages that feed the screen.
also can be your back light is working a way to prove your back light is , turning on the radio in a dark place and bring a flashlight and tries to see something on the display if something is provably which is only your back light and if it is not that the new screen does not works

Another reason could be that the flex cable that you are using that was connected to your old screen and this defective, also check the connection of the flex cable on the screen may be that in the process of Assembly is disconnected.

Can I replace my display and which web site can I buy one.


Well, You might do a Websearch for Eagle products and find Customer Service. I believe you may have a Back-Light bulb which is burned out. If so, then you may be able to just switch the bulb and not replace screen.
You would probably be able to take apart the case and shine a flashlight on the backside of the screen and see something if the unit was plugged in and reporting your GPS readings. Some of the screens are semi-transparent and what you see may show you that all you need is to fix the light source.

Pioneer Avic-F700BT worked perfectly fine for 7 months but....


Hello!
My pos just did this today after I got in a hot car (had windows up for security).
Symptoms:
Briefly displayed the PIONEER default splash screen, LED lighting was the default ... light/bright pink (to match pioneer?).
Then screen goes black, then backlight gets fully dimmed and LED dims to darks white (R,01G,01B01)

Wouldn't really respond to anything... but plays CD in background.

I had a brainstorm while sitting in my car at ACC (ignition) and reading the lame online TS guide.
I turned my car to ON and put the gear shift in REVERSE.
The screen flashed to the password, and flashed black again....
Some how the system stablelized after some time and I resurrected it*.

* After tinkering I found ALL settings except the NAV data/settings had been lost.
In addition I believe corruption has occured in the memory holding the voice data. TTS... that phone thing voice command wont display when i press down on the Multi-nav? dial. Also system crashes when I try to access language settings. Sometimes a Windows CE error message bled thru reporting a fatal application error. Illegal operation request...

Hope this helps. I think my POS is going back to cartoys before my 30days is up.
Pity

Garmin 2720 touchscreen won't work, must use remote control.


I'll start with a comment I made on another post:

The touch screen is made up of several layers. A thin plastic layer, a micro thin metal layer, microdots for insulators, another ultra thin metal layer, and a final plastic layer. All of these layers amount to the thickness of a sheet of paper. This whole stack is bonded to a thin sheet of glass and placed over the actual TFT display.

It's amazing that you can see through all these layers and only lose 20% of the light. What's not so amazing is that those thin metal layers are prone to damage. I've seen several with no apparent damage that didn't work, and several with visible scratches that worked fine.

I usually start by installing (or reinstalling) v7.2 firmware and then attempt to recalibrate the screen, sometimes that works. Next I would try re-seating the 4 conductor touch screen pigtail in it's ZIF socket nestled between the big white wires on the display assembly. The last resort is to buy a broken 2600 or 2700 series Garmin and salvage the touch screen. Actually the real last resort is to have Garmin fix it for a flat $250. Good luck.

Furuno 1622 doesn't work, water coming out cable at screen!


yes the cable should be replaced if you are lucky, the unit is still OK (display) Try the new cable, draped across the boat before rigging. If fault exists with new cable, replace system, or find a new display on ebay
