Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
The connection for the earplug input is broken. If you wiggle it around you can sometimes get sound to come through the earphones or "outloug" so that everyone can hear it. This only happens when the earphone connector is about halfway into the Garmin.
When you try to adjust the sound it says that you can't because you have the headset plugged in. The headset is not plugged in. I would love to find an easy fix for this because Garmin wants $250 to fix the problem, regardless of what it is. I can buy a new Garmin Nuvi 660 for the same price.
Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.
The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.
A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.
There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.
