Question about Garmin nuvi GPS
My Garmin Nuvi worked good on trip but when I tried to use it on the way home the touch screen wasn't working. Other than the touch screen not working the rest of the Garmin was working good. It new where we were and the MPH were working but I couldn't communicate with it. I tried powering off and holding the power button for 15 seconds, I tried powering off and holding my finger in the upper left corner and turning on but nothing was any different than before. It went to the terms and condition screen and was waiting for me to touch "OK" but of course the screen didn't work. I've had this unit for about a year and used it three or four times. Any help would be appreciated.
It sounds like you need your touchscreen replaced. The touchscreen is soldered to the LCD display, so the touchscreen must be unsoldered from the LCD display and a new touchscreen resoldered to the LCD display. Please do not attempt to do this yourself. You can easily damage the LCD display in the process. More information about touchscreen replacement can be found here:

I just plugged my 1350 in (had exact same problem) into computer and deleted the GPX (trip log) and it finally started back up. Deleted all of the favorites and such but it working again.

we are having the same issue with ours - sometimes it will power up no issues and other times it the power button won't work - seems lots of this brand, different models all have the same issue - not sure what the solution is though

Sorry it took a couple days to get to the point of solving your problem with your Garmin. I wanted to do the best I can to help you. So i spent some time and I personally called via my resources A friend of mine the deals with Garmin direct. With our research and phone tag with Garmin, the results are in. It appears the problem is in a chip inside called the logic board, is or has become faulty. That is the reason it will not be recognized on the computer as well as the manual boot override will not solve this problem. They told me this I quote: They state it is a defective/substandard part being used in the unit that is not the customers fault however they said that the unit is automatically covered through manufacture warranty.
Bottom line is this, the unit has to be sent in for repair, but if its not under warranty, then the cost for repair, compared to buying a new refurbished one, would not be practical. Here is what I have done in the past with great success. With many gps, when there not working correctly and there out of warranty, I write them a letter direct, and brag how much i love the unit and so forth. You know really build up up (ego boost) then state that you are wanting to keep bragging to your friends about how great the unit is, but your little embarrassed now, as unit is not working correctly and if there is anyway they can solve this problem.
I have had about a 90% positive result with a letter like that, even to the point of them sending out a new unit even when warranty was expired.
So, I am sorry, there is no buttons to push, or boots up to fix it, this is a problem internal with the logic board. I hope this helps, that was with tons of phone calls and me digging into problem fully. Thanks Mike
