I spoke to Garmin Support about this issue. There are 2 settings for contrast on the nuvi 1300. You need to set the contrast while it is plugged into the vehicle, and also while it is unplugged from the vehicle. The reason for the 2 settings is to save the charge of the battery while it is not plugged into the vehicle or power source.

we are having the same issue with ours - sometimes it will power up no issues and other times it the power button won't work - seems lots of this brand, different models all have the same issue - not sure what the solution is though

Garmin uses picture icons for most of the settings. When you forst turn the unit on you will see a magnafine glass map speaker and wrench. the wrench is tools press that. the next set of icons you will see another wrench that is settings press that. The next set of icons there will be a pair of lips that is language press that. The next screen is harder this is the language screen the upper left blue button is voice, the spoken directions, the upper right is text, the one you need to change, the lower left is keyboard. Select the text button, the languages are alphabetical so scroll up to american english, the screen will refresh then press ok.
The other solution is to do a hard reset. It sounds like you got this unit used or a floor model that someone changed the language on. It might be in your best intrest to reset to clear all saved info that others have input.
