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!

ViewSonic VA1926w monitor dims darker when there's dark content on the screen. I have 2 of these monitor connected to a Pro Mac. Only the right side monitor does this.

Its the dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) that dims the display when dark images are displayed.
For my VA1926w, pressing the right most button (up arrow), enables or disables DCR. Keep this disabled.

Screen too dim

You can try adjusting the screen contrast by pressing [2nd] and using the up and down arrows. Up will make it darker and down will make it lighter/more faded.

1080p lcd hdtv 50+ inch. picture getting darker

If no settings have been changed it means your backlight is dimming. This is a common issue with LCD TV's however it usually doesn't happen this soon. The best thing to slow down the dimming process is to lower your contrast settings, however what you really should do is calibrate your television either professionally or by using a calibration DVD or Blu-Ray with color filters.
