Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver

I have the White Screen of Death

My Nuvi was working fine until yesterday when I turned it on, and the screen will only show white. It starts with a dim white and then goes to a bright white screen. It is on in the background because I can hear it, but just no picture. Please help. Thanks

    The reset button just turns the unit off. You think the LCD needs to be replaced even though it gets power? How much does replacement usually run?

Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.

    Yes, the LCD display has it's own IC chips (Integrated circuits) that receive data from the main board and convert it to a visual readout. Having repaired many Nuvi's myself, any problems with the display are usually confined to the display itself. Now,if you dropped it, there's a possibility that the internal flex cable has partially come loose from the board. However, you can't tell that unless the Nuvi is opened up. I have seen Nuvi's with an all white screen, half white, half ok...all which were caused by a defective screen. Prices vary based upon whether you want a new screen or a used one. The price can be anywhere between $45 and up.

    Please don't try to do this yourself. I have received many horror stories from people who have destroyed their Nuvi by attempting to take it apart.

Fix white screen of death garmin nuvi 40


If it is brand new, I would return to the seller and ask for a replacement. Sometimes chasing down a problem like that can cost more in aggravation and fuel than it is worth.

White screen of death on Macbook 13". when turning


You may need to reset the PRAM.
Start your computer and hold down the option, command (apple), P and R keys simultaneously until you hear the second chime. Then release.

This will reset the perimeter RAM (PRAM) and may allow your system to start, which it will do immediately if it capable.
If this is not the case and you have already tried removing the RAM and the HD, you may need to have the motherboard tested.

White screen, have to do a soft restart and then words show up


I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
