Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
After coming on the screen will start to go white. Turning the unit off then on seems to fix the screen except everything on the screen is in reverse. Also have the sound problem, but can hear a slight scrathing sound when the voice is supposed to be saying something. Wondering if its worth getting it fixed with the way GPS prices are falling.
For clarification: You turn on your unit, the blue magellan logo appears clearly, but then the screen slowly starts turning white. Turning the unit off/on fixes the white but images are in reverse. CAUTION: It would help if you were grounded in some way prior to proceeding. Also, of course do this at your own risk. Make sure the cable going from the main board to the LCD is making a solid connection: 1. Take screws out of rear housing 2. Slightly seperate the rear/front housing 3. Disconnect the RF cable attached on the corner of the main board. 4. Pull off (or locate if they already fell off) 4 O rings from the screw mounts. 5. Fold over mainboard ontop of rear housing 6. Use fingernail or tweezers to lift up the plastic locking mechanism that attaches your LCD to the backside of your mainboard. 7. Pull out LCD cable, inspect for "gunk" on conacts (clean if necessary) 8. Shove cable back into slot on mainboard 9. Press down locking mechanism 10. fold mainboard back over 11. Put 4 O rings back on screw mounts 12. PLUG RF CABLE BACK IN! (signal will be zero if this doesn't happen) 13. Fit together front/back and screw back in.
