Freezing with a blue or checkered screen

One day, when I turned on my car's ingnition, my GPS didn't start appropriately and went with a black-white checkered scrren. And, any of button doesn't work including the power button. (The power button only worked when turned on) I dodn't have any firmware to download to figure out that it would be a problem of hardware or software. Everytime I turned on its power, same thing happened.

Re: Freezing with a blue or checkered screen

Try holding the reset button on the back in for 30 seconds.    Sounds like its in test or programming mode.

I want to know where the red,yellow,blue, green,,white,and black wires go?

red and black are power and ground, blue and white are gps output signal connect those to 9 pin connector pins 2 and 5 and get a 9 pin(serial) cable to usb adapter for input to a laptop, charting or mapping program and you are good to go. just make sure if you are using xp to wait until the mapping program is running and searching for gps signal before you connect the serial or usb because windows thinks the signal is from a mouse and the cursor will turn into a raging crackhead jumping all over the screen and randomly clicking on whatever it touches.

The screen turned white for about an hour, does not come on

try the reset first (little pin hole on the side) using a paper clip, hold it in for 10-15 seconds. if that fails, plug in your charger and charge for awhile the press and hold the power button for upto 15 seconds till it starts. it sounds like you might have multiple problems. the screen going white normally indicates a bad screen but might just need reseated (ribbon cable)..try what i suggested first, if none of those work, let me know and we will see what else we can do.

When I turn on my GPS a white screen over a blue screen comes up which never used to happen

tap right hand lower corner of screen to get it to continue loading. I then upgraded the firmware to the P7 and I no longer have any problems with the unit... and it runs faster.

Freezing up

Had the same the month before warranty expired. My personal opinion is that HDD got bad sectors. Sent to local repair representative. He just reformated drive and reinstalled software.
No wonder that another 11 months later it ran into exactly the same issue.
I'd buy new HDD but there is no way to re-install OS on it.
I'm surprised that no one has done that.
