Question about Garmin eTrex GPS Receiver
The problem is a physical one, not a software issue.
I assume some sort of loose connection(s) at the screen or failure in the hardware.
Have been reluctant to dis-assemble without advice/guidance from someone that has experienced and solved the problem.
Can not update software as no link cable comes with unit.
Recently attempted to construct one ( found directions online for home made version) but needed a different type of wire than I had available at the time. (cost to purchase one from Garmin prohibitive for my uses) I have repaired an unresponsive Dell Axim x5 screen by dis-assembling and placing tape over a burnt ribbon connector so I am not afraid to work on the unit provided some success is possible. Not knowledgeable enough to just look for something that might not be apparent to the untrained eye with the risk of damaging the unit further. The unit is usable just difficult to read.
