Sounds to me like the LCD is broken or damaged, but due to the low cost of a new unit these days its possibly scrap. and cheaper to buy new again.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 350 - broken screen

If the LCD is actually leaking (big stain on the screen) then it cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Replacing an LCD is a relatively simple job on any GPS, it is normally just a case of opening the casing, disconnecting the ribbon cable on the old screen and putting the new one in its place. As long as you are careful and put everything back where you found it then you should have no problems.

You can check all the parts suppliers in your area or online for a new screen, but for the lowest cost solution I would suggest searching ebay for a faulty nuvi 350 with an intact screen. If you can find one you will probably get it for less than the cost of a new part, plus whatever bits you have left you can always resell. There are always people wanting to buy spares for satnavs.

I just had him fix my on-off button problem - common problem with the 350 design. Mel provides great service and customer communications at a very reasonable price.

My nuvi live again.

Tell him Al sent you.

Half the screen does not appear.


Anytime you see only half of the screen, this is an indication that the LCD display is defective and needs to be replaced. Further info, tips and sample pictures can be seen here:

Only see half the screen - other half blank


Anytime you have a distortion in the image on the screen, this can NOT be reolved with a reset. You have a bad LCD module. Take a look at the pictures on this page and see if one is like the problem you are having.

Only half of sreen lights up and is frozen. Do all 350 have a memory card? When my husband brought it in from his last trip, there appears to be no memory card in it. Could this be my problem with only...


Stock Nuvi's from the factory do not include a memory card (SD card). You do not need a memory card to operate the Nuvi. The memory card is only needed if you want to add more storage space for music or pictures or if you want to add additional maps. It has nothing to do with the LCD display. Having worked on these units for quite sometime, anytime you have 1/2 of the screen missing, it tells me that your LCD display is defective.

Nuvi Screen is messed up


Sorry to say but your screen is most likely damaged. You should never store a LCD display in the cold. First, the cold slows down the screen's response time... after all.... LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display.... what does "liquid" do when it's cold? Also, there is a chance that condensation develops inside from your car being cold and then heated when you drive it. Not good for electronic devices.

The screens can be replaced.

Issue on garmin 350 screen


Sounds like it has some internal damage. I think you need a tech savvy person to open it up and check if the display didn't move in its mount, shifting the connections. My best guess is a shipment to garmin. They do have a standard repair price. Maybe you can get your hands on a defective one with a good display and have the tech savvy guy swap the display.

Sorry to say the LCD display is cracked. You can find a replacement LCD display with tools on eBay but they are kind of pricey.

You might try finding one for sale that has an antenna problem or is completely that had a known working display at the time it died.

If you send it back to Garmin, it will cost you almost the same as a new one if your unit is out of warranty.

Good luck!
