The rhino backlight will come on,but is so dull that you have a hard time seeing the screen. adjusting the backlight does not do anything. adjusting the backlight from 0-100% does not change the light. Help

SOURCE: rhino 530 no signal

I have a 530 which was intermittently receiving sat signals for about a day then it quit. I disassembled it and found that the circuit trace that connects to the GPS antenna had cracked at the edge of the solder connection. I added a short jumper on the trace and that fixed the problem. Note: very fine soldering. Not for the novis.

Updating your GPS's software will sometimes correct that problem. Go to garmin's site to find the official updates. A side note though, opening your Rino like ebretag did will void your warranty as well as break your seal on the unit, ruining your IPX7 weather proofness.

Garmin 530 log on problems


Could be a problem with the memory card. Please try to remove that then power up and see if the issue is resolved. If not, it could be a problem with the internal circuitry. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there is no other go except to get the device service.

When the unit is on, press the bottom right side button on the GPS unit. A slider will appear to increase brightness, use your toggle to move the slider up.

Power Switch will not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on


When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.

Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.

I have a new garmin 660wt out the box and it won't stay on the backlight goes out and you cN'T SEE THE SCREEN BUT STILL GET VOICE COMMANDS. i've done the setting to stay on but its still does it, driving...


I agree with that. There is a small window on this model that detects light values to alter the screen to vary intensityof brightness. It is this part that is defective

Hi,
Could it possibly be your backlight setting? I had a problem with my screen staying dark until i set the brightness level.
settings -> system -> backlight -> brightness -. then adjust your settings.
