SOURCE: Cannot load map in my Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS

i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.

SOURCE: changed battery garmin ique no backlight

Most likely you broke one or both wire that supply power to the LCD. There are two ribbon cables to the LCD and two (black, white) wire. The ribbon cable cables supply data signal to the lcd and the smaller cable is the digitizer signal. The power wire (black, white) wires are soldered to the circuit board. And since these are LED lights there is a plus and minus and they have to be soldered correctly.
But before taking apart the IQUE 3600 did you try adjusting the brightness level?

SOURCE: "No Map Data Available" - Garmin Nuvi 350

This is because your map file has either been deleted or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info. Too much info to copy & paste here:

How do I fix the backlight of my garmin 3205


The LCD display contains both the display and backlight. They are integrated as one piece. Therefore the entire display needs to be replaced. The backlight connections are soldered to the LCD connections. Replace the entire display.

How do i find my product key for my nuvi250


Hello,

The Garmin product key, also called the product serial number, is included in the box your Nuvi i250 comes in. This number is nine digits; it's printed on the yellow specification sheet. Fortunately, the key is also printed on your Garmin unit, which is helpful in the event you lose your specification sheet. The Garmin product key is required to register your Nuvi i250 with Garmin. (Registration allows you to download software and map updates, and receive recall information.)

Follow the procedures below on your nuvi i250;

  1. Turn your Nuvi i250 around to view its back.
  2. Flip up the GPS antenna with your finger. Look behind the GPS antenna for the specification sticker.
  3. Write down the nine-digit product key. With this number, you'll be able to register your Garmin. (See "Resources.")
Good luck

Garmin Nuvi GPS won't acquire satellites


There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.

Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.
