    GMS9 unit 3amp fuse blew but after replacing fuse on board with a 5amp still does not work properly. At first a/c unit began working (light came on) so I put door back on then stopped working again. Gave a quick flash of light and went out. Fuse looks fine? Is this a contact problem? Unit only 3 yrs old, no apparent wiring issues

    Sorry to confuse but my post meant to say that t-stat faceplate was tried on lower level hvac and worked fine but won't work on problem unit upstairs. Neither faceplate seems to fix prob on upstairs unit. Seems that when 3amp fuse blows the t-stat touch screen does not react unless pushed forcefully. Called t-stat company and they suggested disconnecting 'blue' wire from t-stat (it is optional anyway) but no change. I think fuse has blown again on c-board. Does this sound like problem with system board?

    HVAC guy just left, had a bad transformer that needs to be replaced. The old one looks brand new but he tested it and even swapped it with the one downstairs to confirm it was bad. I jus hope that there was nothing else between the t-stat and circuit board that blew the tranny.

    I'm still open to comments on this thread

    By your own troubleshooting it seems you have a bad thermostat.

As I said, bad t-stat.
When you switched covers it worked correctly. The t-stat sends a signal through the fuse then to the components you are calling for.
The original t-stat blew the fuse and is hard to push.
Replace your t-stat and solve your problem.

    Remove the output wires on the control board. Turn the system on.
    Replace one wire at time until the fuse blows. That will be your bad component.

Unit will not boot up. Freezes at disclaimer screen.


Hello :

Try the following solution bellow . This solution has worked with many people who have a device just like yours .

Try to reset your NUVI , please follow one of these procedures :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.


3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
............................................................................................
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Touchscreen not working


You could try resetting the device by:

1. Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate.
2. Gently pull off the faceplate.
3. Press the reset button
4. Turn the unit back on

If that still doesn't take care of it then you can try to contact Garmin to see if they have a replacement touch screen or if they can repair it, but the product is discontinued.
