You need to solder the wire or wires back on the board. There is a red wire and a black wire used to power the backlight. They go to two solder pads on the board that are near each other. You should be able to see where the wire has broken off. If you don't have the equipment or haven't done this before ask a friend.

The light no longer works. It was OK until I


Every time I have changed an iQue 3600 battery the wires that power the backlight have broken off. The lights are white LEDs so it is not too likely they are dead. You have to open it up again (watch the springs in the jog wheel!!) and check the red and black wires that go from the light to the PC board. Good luck.

I just changed the battery on a garmin ique 3600 and the backlight won't come on. Any tips?


Most likely you broke one or both wire from the backlight to the circuit board. Open the unit up and look for a black and red wire. Both should be soldered to the circuit board. LED's are used for the backlight and so it does make a different that the back and red wire are soldered to the circuit board correctly.

Changed battery---record switch came apart, screen wires came off of mother board.


I have an iQue 3600 apart right now. One of my screen wires has come off the board. There are two large solder pads to the left of the left-most white push button. Red wire goes to the left solder pad; black wire to the right one. You need to strip a little insulation from the wires and solder them back on. If you have not soldered before, find someone to do it for you!

Garmin ique 3600 not working


Been there. If the unit will not reset with the hole in the back poke you need to disconnect and reconnect the battery. Use a small torx screw driver for the four screws in the corners. Gently split the back case off by the thumbwheel and pivot it around. the battery connector is a small white connector in the lower left hand corner. Be careful of the power switch, ir lamp cover, and plug gasket since when you open the case they sometimes make a break for freedom.

Garmin ique 3600 backlight does not work.


When you opened up the unit, you probably loosened one of the wires. Look to see if there is a small, short black wire and a small short red wire attached to the screen and soldered onto the circut board. They control the back light and one of them may be loose or disconnected. It can be repaired if you have a fine enough soldering tool.

Changed battery garmin ique no backlight


Most likely you broke one or both wire that supply power to the LCD. There are two ribbon cables to the LCD and two (black, white) wire. The ribbon cable cables supply data signal to the lcd and the smaller cable is the digitizer signal. The power wire (black, white) wires are soldered to the circuit board. And since these are LED lights there is a plus and minus and they have to be soldered correctly.
But before taking apart the IQUE 3600 did you try adjusting the brightness level?

Ique 3600 can not charge thru cradle and car unit but only thru travel charger, using the pin connector (Green light does not appear when using the main connector on ique 3600, although hot sync and...


Solved:Opened the iQue and used a heated knife to cut horizontally into the + pin and it comes like a U, upside down, from the circuit board, and the exterior side of it was broken. Used tiny plastic and sealant in the hollow space inside the connector and soldered thin copper wire (used for exploding dynamite) from the horizontal part towards the exterior.

May be a hardware issue. I had similar behavior when I replaced my IQue 3600's battery. If the circuitboard inside wasn't seated properly on the contacts coming from the battery, the iQue would keep rebooting. Start by checking that all the external screws are snug (but not over-tight). If not, you can try to open the case to check the two screws inside holding the circuit board. But I'll leave that up to you, since I can't honestly guarantee that you're experiencing the same problem. (After all, you seem to be sure that it has something to do with the software...and you may be right.)
