Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (no antenna socket on i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the gold PCB flat wire and remove the section around the burn.
scrape a small amount of green off the gold flat PCB wire so you can solder a new wire to bypass the short. any 2.5mm insulated wire will do to bridge the gap you have just scraped away, there is plenty of room for a 1 inch wire.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

Brightness of my desktop has been increased what to do??


I've recently come to the realization that my computer monitor screen is not properly calibrated. In different web forums where photos are posted, I'm noticing that I can't make out a lot of the pictures people are talking about - they're too dark. I've also noticed this when printing out CD covers - detail in the shadows that I never saw on the screen. Also, every time I show people digital photos, I have to turn up the brightness (in Photoshop) to anywhere between 25 - 50 %! Needless to say, I need to calibrate my monitor. For a test, I downloaded one of those "black level" graphs whrere the squares go from dark to light and you should be able to see every square clearly - I can only see half before they disappear into all blackness.

I have one of those old "turn of the century" big Dell Monitors that came with my original computer back in 2000. It has two "select" buttons (- +) and two "adjust" buttons (- +) with a row of icons (showing which parameter you're adjusting) with lights underneath on the left. I know that the "sun" icon is brightness and the "half moon" icon is contrast, but I don't know what the rest are.

After selecting "brightness," I hit the adjust "+" button a couple of times and I expected to see a bar graph showing my adjustment, but there was nothing, so I left it alone. I don't want to screw up my monitor so I want to make sure that I'm doing this right. It says "recall" under the select and adjust buttons with "arrows" pointing to two buttons. I assume that you press these to go back to your default settings.

So, how do I go about doing this correctly? __________________

  • Press the "Main Menu" button on the Navman to bring up a list of options. Tap "Preferences," choose "Localize" and "Language." Each option is selected by touching the screen. The different language options show up on the screen in list format. Touch the language you want to use and press the check mark icon. The Navman will now operate in the chosen language.

    Nu-tec model no NUE1958. followed the manual to the dot. Picture, user mode then nothing. How do i adjust the colour and brightness etc. Have been trying for hours


    Had the same experience 'til I discovered that the manual is WRONG!
    Press MENU and then right arrow to select 'Picture Mode' icon at the top of the screen. Then down arrow and so on to make adjustments.
    Evidently you can only change 'User' mode.

    I Hate Photography - I So Don't Understand It


    Okay, first to erase one at a time:
    go to playback mode then find the picture you want to erase. Press the trash can button (it's the 3rd button down in the middle) only press it one time while the picture is showing it will bring up a screen on the left, use the button that at the top back of the camera that goes to the next picture and with your thumb look at the left part of the screen and go down and select the little icon that look is under the first one highlighted then just press the button just to the right of the Menu buttom (this is the enter button and it's not clearly marked at all). This will erase/delete the selected picture.

    To format card and erase all pictures: do all the above but when you press the trash button press it again and hold it for a second and the screen will give you more icons at the left of the screen toggle down to the bottom icon and press the enter button and your format screen will come up. It's easy from there.
