(1) Disconnect any external GPS antenna. (2) Do not turn on auto engine. (3) Turn off any other peripheral devices. (4) Simultaneusly hold down the PAGE and MENU buttons while turning on the 2620. A prompt box will appear asking if you really want to delete all user data. Touch the NO selection. Then turn off the 2620. (5) Simultaneously hold down MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. (6) A self-running diagnostic program will appear. Allow it to run for a couple of minutes; check to see that all parameters indicate "PASS" or other indication of being OK. If any parameter is not OK, make a note of it for potential communication to Garmin, then proceed with the following steps (7) Turn off the 2620. (8) Simultaneously hold down the PAGE, MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. A SCREEN CALIBRATION adjustment screen will apear. Quickly touch the points indicated as the calibration program runs. At the end of this procedure, the screen will display a window indicating that the calibration either "PASSED" or "FAILED." If it "PASSED," continue to steps (8)-(9). If it "FAILED," turn off the 2620 and repeat this step. If, after three calibrations attempts, each one is "FAILED," then also turn off the 2620 and proceed to steps (8)-(9). (8) Turn on the 2620. Press the "OK" button each time prompted to do so. Wait for maps to load and for the 2620 to initialize, acquire satellites, and display your position. (9) Press FIND button, then touch the right-hand vertical screen position adjustment to scroll screen display down to reveal WAYPOINT selection box. If unable to select WAYPOINT, or if attempting to do so only selects an adjacent box, then repeat step (7), and return to this step. (10) When various waypoint selections appear, attempt to scroll down to a selection not visible when the list of waypoints first appears, and select one of them. If still unable to select WAYPOINT box, unable to scroll screen down (or if trying to do so selects a stored waypoint instead), once again repeat step (7). If successful,then proceed to step (11). Also proceed to step (11) if you have repeat step (7) but then still can't select WAYPOINT, can't scroll down after selecting WAYPOINT, or can't select a particular stored WAYPOINT. (11) Press the upper-right hand "X" to close out the FIND screen or sub-screen within that function. If unable to close the screen, press the PAGE button. (12) Press FIND button, and when selection screen appears, touch ADDRESS. On next screen, touch the STATE line and touch the ENTER A CITY in (name of state). When keyboard appears on screen, use it to enter your city, then touch OK. Continue this procedure to enter your house number and street name, then press "OK." If all screen keyboard keys not responding, repeat step (7), turn the 2620 off and on again, wait for it to initialize, and then attempt this step again. (13) Repeat this procedure several times if not initially successful. By the second or third run-through, the touch screen should respond fully and accurately. If, after many runs through this procedure, the touch screen still will not respond, the screen sensor probably will need to be replaced ($255). The foregoing procedure brought my touch screen back to life last evening, much to my delight. Do not be too concerned if the SCREEN CALIBRATION step does nto produce a "PASS;" on my third calibration attempt it produced a PASS but all of the touch screen points still had not returned to functionality. I was unable to get a PASS during the screen calibration step after that, but the many repetitions apparently nonetheless made the difference, as by patiently following the above prcoess for five cycles, full screen functionality was restored.

I'm so excited. My screen finally works again!!!!!
I looked at the long answer by Woofer, and fooled around a little bit, and my calibration finally worked. It took me a long time of trial and error. My menu/Route button is one and the same. So I used Menu and Find instead. It worked I think. I had to do the first 8 eps like 5 times, and then kept checking calibration before I got it to say Calibration Complete.
Also I never got the calibration screen to come up like he says. I never went past step 8.
Thansk!! Good Luck!!

A few years ago I purchased a SlumberAir Mattress system by La-Z-Boy and I love it. It is the bed I sleep in every night, but I've run into problems with the air mattress. It seems after three m

You should check the coil mattress cover. Feel around to make sure nothing is puncturing the bladder. It is not normal for them to fail like that. When you deflate it, you must make sure all of the air is out of the bladder before folding the unit back into the sofa. If you don't, you make end up with a problem at the seams.

I am having a leak with the hydrolock going to the sprayer hose on a new Moen faucet. I have taken it apart a few times to make sure it's together right, but I can't get it to stop leaking.

Three years ago, I installed a Moen kitchen faucet with sprayer
in one of my rental units. Moen twice sent replacement
Hydrolock kits, as I couldn't get them to seal. While waiting for the Moen parts to arrive, I used a short length of heater hose purchased at AutoZone, held on by two small hose clamps. After all three Hydrolocks had failed to seal, I just left the heater hose in place. Three years and no problems. ..and no more Moens, either.

I have Lutron Maestro switches throughout my home and love them. However, two of them are now difficult to use. They do work eventually, but I have to press repeatedly and very firmly to get them to turn...

The best thing you can do is call Lutron's tech support at 1-800-523-9466. They're available 24/7 and get probably point you in a better direction than being able to diagnose / troubleshoot over e-mail / this forum. Generally speaking, I don't think they will replace your plastics. It is possible for it to get worn over time - but that could be the plastic, or it could be the buttons within the unit. Either way, like I said, they probably won't recommend anything to repair the unit, but you can request that they replce it - especially if its only been in use for 3-5 years.

How do i update maps on my model c330 purchased in2006

The only way is to purchase them is directly from Garmin.

Being that you have not updated the maps you will pay a penalty as they want people to update each year that a update becomes available.

Updates will probably run you $99 to $150 based on your software being 2-3 updates behind.

Being that the unit is 3-4 years old, I would not recommend investing $100 to update the software.

Vast improvements have been made to screen image quality, touch screen input technology as well as to the GPS receiver itself. Improvements to receiver sensitivity and "text to speech" technology alone merit an upgrade. I would instead recommend shopping around for a new unit as there are some incredible deals out there.

Magellan makes a roadmate 1430 or 1470 with nice large touch screens that run under $150. Garmin has a few models in that price range as well, try to get something with a 4.3" or larger touchscreen.

Hope that helps

I cant get my PS3 to work

Is your warranty purchased from Sony itself or from the place of purchase i.e. Walmart extended warranty? Return it to the place of purchase. They should have your PS3 serial number and can look it up. Once they verify you have the extended warranty, they should take care of it.

If you purchased direct from Sony, try this link: Knowledge Center concerning returns

Contact Official Playstation

Addressing the actual probelm. I am not sure if this would work but turn off the PS3, Once light turns red, touch the power button and keep holding as light turns green then goes back to red. The try restarting the PS3. Thats a video reset. It may work, it may not.
