Question about Garmin Boating
I have a Garmin 192C that is getting power to the unit but the screen will not light up . The inline fuse is good but I'm wondering if there is an internal fuse that may have been blown. thanks JIM

SOURCE: Replacement Memory Battery
The Garmin GPS III and III plus use a tabbed lithium coin battery. Its is a Panasonic BR-2032. You can buy these for about $2 from larger electronic suppliers. The problem is that the shipping or minimum order will make that $2 battery cost you about $25. For you cheap guys there is a solution. You buy a CP-2032 and a coin holder. $2-3 for the battery and $1-$2 for the holder. 6 screws to open the case, cut the wires close to the battery as possible. Solder the wires to the coin holder (good idea to heat shrink or cover the solder joints), put in the new battery and you are done the easy bit. You will most likely have to trim away some of the plastic on the holder such as legs or other things sticking out. Unfortunately you can't really do this with out fitting it in the case and you don't want to do that until you have the holder on the wires so it will be in the right place. Once you get that, simply play with it until you can put the screws back in. And tighten gently. Not too much or the gasket will be squeezed too far out. Put tAA'sx AA's back in, take it outside so it has an unobstructed view of the sky, set it down and go for a long coffee or three. It will now download the almanac and any other data which can take 15 minutes or more depending on the satellites. You should see a low battery error and other errors such as saved data lost. Ignore these. You can put it on a external power plug or just leave it off with the AA's and in 5-7 days it will have reset the error as it figures it it now charged. You get the battery error even with a new fresh charged battery. I think there is a Garmin reset code to force this but none of the codes I have tried have worked.

there is a reset button under the thin frame around your screen. remove the frame by prying it up with your fingernail, push the reset button and your problem will be fixed

Those are severe symptoms.
A Hard Reset is a good idea after a firmware upgrade.
There are three levels of getting your Garmin 255W's attention and correcting bad habits (ie: not loading maps or locking up).
The first is 'soft reset'. There is a reset button along the bottom of your gps. Push and hold it until it restarts. If you cannot locate your reset button, sliding the power switch to OFF and holding for 8 seconds should do the same thing.
The second method is a 'hard reset' or 'clear all user data', to restore factory defaults.
The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
The third method is a firmware upgrade via Garmin's Webupdater, or the myGarmin site.
Run through these fixes to get your Nuvi running as good as new.
I hope that helps.

Your touchscreen should now be recalibrated.
If the screen is still not responding, then the unit will need to be replaced with a new unit at this time.
