Sometimes when we are wearing tight clothes and put mobile phones in the pocket, the screen gets pressed against coins or keys in the pocket. This damages the screen. I think this is the case with you. Now, the only solution remaining is replacing the LCD.

Good Day Msmeddings!

Looks like the battery of Nuvi255 is on its last leg. I do suggest you replace the battery.

You can purchase online a replacement battery worth $20.95 from this site: http://www.batteryship.com/htmlos/htmlos.cgi/batteryship/catalog.html?item=361-00019-11&model=Nuvi+255

But before you do that, let's try this first to make sure that the sd memory card from your device is not causing that trouble.

Please remove the sd memory card from your device before turning it on. And when it loads successfully, return back the sd card and see if this card cause the device to restart.

Twist the Macbook body while turning it on. If that make the image come back, you have a broken logic board. There are Mac Repair Guides that show how to open a Macbook. Watch out for the ribbon cables, those tear easily. Replacement parts are usually available on Ebay. There are third party services that can do it for you, like Mac Repair NYC.

Damage takes time especially water damage. I suggest getting a new phone because over the next month chances are against you that the phone screen will fully black out. Get a new phone as soon as you can. Not having a screen sucks, trust me! I hope I helped you out! Good Luck!
