I have a Garmin Nuvi 650 with an unresponsive screen...can anything be done? Thanks

Power off your Garmin 660 unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
To back up your Garmin.
  • From the garmin drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  • After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Garmin, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  • On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Garmin where they are actually stored

  • This should reset your Garmin then I would suggest updating your device at the Garmin site. I will attach a link.
    Thanks for using FixYa

    I have a gpx mp3 player, model MW140R. I have downloaded music to it before. I erased some songs. Now my windows vista home basic does not recognize when the mp3 is plugged in. The sync botton will not...

    I just recently purchased the GPX MW140R. I can load .mp3 songs to it and remove them but my problem is that when I'm selecting songs, there are times that it will come to one and get stuck and the only way for me to get out of that stuck mode is to turn it off by removing the battery. Why is it that it gets stuck on certain songs and not others when they are all .mp3 format?

    Any help in resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Jeff... (

    Is there something that I need to update on that unit or what? Thanks again...

    I just bought a GPX MP3 player (ML651B) I put music on it and was charging it. It now doesn't even want to turn on. I looked at the GPX website and I couldn't even find this one among their products. Now,...

    The power button (more like a slide) on the bottom right side will turn it on once it's ejected from the computer. Hold the slide in, and let go after a second or two. Give it a few seconds (like 10) and it should power on. I got mine as a gift and am still working through the interface.

    My garmin 255w nuvi keep turning off and wont turn on

    It is a good idea to perform a hard reset on your Garmin Nuvi after updating the software.

    The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

    1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
    2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
    3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
    Perform the Hard Reset:

    *Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

    1. Power the unit off.
    2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
    3. Install the battery.
    4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
    5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
    6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

    Most items, first time your have to charge it for continious 8 to 11 hours. On that time it fully charge the battery and internal battery. I would say charge it for 11 hours.(It wont over chage on anything.)
    But, if you already charged it for some time, discharge it fully. (Leave it playing till it wont even turn on when you puch the power button) Then charge it backfor11 hours.

    Like device is not even there.

    probaly because you cannot fit anymore music into your device. All you have to do is delete it off and put the songs you really love on there

    When is the battery charged?

    these small dvd player are built with less options

    normally with cheap batteries, so usually it will turn green when fully charge or even turn off. hard to say. but since it cheap batteries, it probably wont do anything at all.

    i would charge it for 10-14 hours then unplug the device.
    the battery will get hot, and then the device will no longer work after over charging the player.

    so charge for 10-14 hour only UNPLUG the player
    play til it dies then start process all over again.

    if you find that the battery is dying faster and faster then you have a cheap battery

    theres no easy fix for this, some battery cannot be interchanged
    when buying something make sure you can exchange the battery like a laptop. this way if the battery is overly charge it doesnt leak into the player.

    or into the device
