Ok, you may have to reset this device by taking out all batteries if any and disconnecting it from any external power sources. let stand without any batteries or power cord for 5 min. after five minutes put batteries back in or plug it back into the external power source. if the device is still malfunctioning, you will have to clear all data. it may have a data overload and this will cause this blank screen with the dot. Follow this procedure if taking out the batteries and unplugging it for five minutes didn't help.

Press and hold all buttons in the following order: The arrow button that faces left, press that and hold while you press the wheel and power button. hold all three buttons till you see a prompt that will say, "Do you really want to erase all your user data?" select yes. at this point the device will start to work like. normal.

Mio moov 300 screen alignment problem


Download the user manual online and look for factory resettings. Follow instructions and it should work. On my Garmin, the same thing happened. On Garmin, you turn the unit off, press and hold the top left corner of your screen, and turn the unit on while pressing the top left corner of the screen. You wait for 10 seconds and a black dot appears and requests you touch it. The dot moves around the screen and you keep touching it. Once done, your screen perimeter is identified and all the letters fall in place when you press them. Good luck!

Comes up with press dot screen nothing I do seems


Have you tried a screen calibration? Turn off the unit then press and hold the upper left of the screen as you turn it on. A dot will show up on screen and then press the dot firmly as it moves around the screen. When it is done it will say screen calibration complete.
I also assume you tried a reset by pressing the reset button or on the newer units just hold the power button while turning it on for about 15 seconds until it reboots.

Hello
I don't know whether you have made a factory reset to this device or not. If not, set it first and see whether it helps you. To make it factory settings:
[1] Press 'MENU""MENU" (down arrow to system setup) "ENT" (down arrow to RESET options/ ENT
[2] The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [<---] to YES and then ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to map page at 4000 miles zoom range. Any recorded sonar logs of GPS data will be unchanged. OK.

I put oin a new address , hit Go and my Garmin nuvi just keeps re routing me back to where I am.


Hi Nancy,

You might try a "RESET" to solve this problem:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing bottom right corner of the screen. This will reset your data back to factory defaults. This will remove favorites, vehicles, etc. - but maps will remain.


Next, install the latest Garmin firmware for your GPS. This can solve a lot of "strange" problems:

Go Garmin's WebUpdater Page, click on "Step 1 DOWNLOAD", from there choose the Operating System on your computer and either run or save the file, install this software and then run the software with your Garmin connected to the computer.


Difficulty typing? Try a screen recalibration:

Turn your Garmin on WHILE pressing the top left corner of the screen. This will allow you to recalibrate your screen and holding the Use a pencil (instead of a finger) to touch the dots for the best accuracy.


If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - Thanks & good luck!

My screen just went white and a black dot appeared with the message press dot what should i do


Try pressing the dot. If that does not work you can try resetting the unit which will return it to factory specs but all your saved information like favorites and routes will be lost. The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. Power the unit off then press and hold the reset till it starts and the choose yes on the screen to restore the unit.
I have attached a link to the manual which shows a photo of the location and page 13 describes the reset in more detail.

I have the xl live and after an update which failed, my tom tom has now failed. I have tried a reset but i can only get the legal notice page the i agree touch screen fails to move on. can you help.


Hello,

The TomTom is a portable GPS for automobiles that assists the driver with navigational maps and driving instructions. If the TomTom freezes up or glitches, you can reset the system back to the factory settings. Users that have the 22 Range TomTom models such as the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL can hold down the power button to reset their system. However, the TomTom GO has a manual reset button on the device.

Instructions And What You Need To Solve The Problem.

  • Paperclip
  1. Remove the TomTom GO from its cradle.
  2. Turn the unit upside down.
  3. Look for a small hole in the bottom of the unit. It will be located just behind the release button. The reset button is recessed inside this hole.
  4. Straighten out one end of the paperclip.
  5. Press the recessed button by inserting the straightened end of the paperclip into the reset hole.
  6. Hold the button down for ten seconds, then pull the paperclip out of the hole. Your TomTom GO should now be reset back to the factory settings.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

My garmin 760 screen reads "press dot".


Hiya!

All you need to do is use a ds pen (or something that is plastic and will fit within the black dot) - our fingers are to big for the calibration. Ive just fixed mine. It should correct its self within 10 dots and away you go again :)

Cannot access main menu or pages screen


I think I can help with your issue. I have an LMS 334c and have had a few issues in the past. Called the factory (this answer is not listed any where in your manual) and they instructed me to "Soft Re Boot" my unit and it would put everything back to factory settings. Try this anytime it does not respond for whatever reason.

Turn the unit off.

At the same time press the Pages and Power button. Hold both down until you see the square box come up in the screen. You should have your factory settings again. May need to try a few times.
Lowrance said it works just like a computer, ever now and then it just tries to disect to much information at one time and hangs up.
Good luck. James Cantwell
