There is a contrast parameter in the "Parameters" -> System -> Display

You can increase it. Otherwise you may use backlight by short press on start button. duration of backlight also tuned on the same menu.

SOURCE: where can i get a new screen for my 305 edge

Hi Gary,

Your best bet on this would be to allow Garmin to handle it. These devices are so small and require steady hands and precision tools to perform the repair work. I checked out Garmin's site for "Out of Warranty" repair rates (even if under warranty - it wouldn't covered for the kind of accident it suffered), and the good news is: for just $79, it will be either be repaired or replaced with a factory "Newly-Overhauled" 305 GPS. It will also be updated with the latest software and come with a 90 day warranty.

You can arrange for this repair completely online by following the instructions on this page:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Garmin Edge 305 won't acquire satellite signals


If the option of working without GPS receiver enabled is turned off, then it may be a real damage.

Only thing is to check this option.

Monitor dims on a black background hanns G 28


Go into monitor settings and turn "off" X-Contrast. X-Contrast will auto change contrast when backgrounds darkens. However, adjust manually the Brightness and Contrast settings to compensate.
