For the problem you are experiencing it is unlikely the time and effort needed to be spent trying to repair the product will be worth it compared to purchasing a used replacement 2610 for around $60. However, if your touch screen and accessories work you may wish to sell them on a third party web site for spare parts for others. You could fetch as much as $30 depending on what you have. If you have a remote and bean bag mount those alone can catch up to $30 + shipping.
You are caught in a loop most likely caused by a failed microdrive. Search Garmin 2620 cornice for a thread that is likely to provide the information about the failure you are experiencing. In short, if it is the Cornice drive that has failed you will find it very difficult to repair, if not impossible depending on your level of expertise and ability to find a used part for repair as the drives needed are no longer manufactured or readily available.
I am assuming you want to calibrate the touch screen. Press MENU, click DISPLAY, Press find, press find, follow instructions on screen. You can also hold MENU and FIND at startup and a diagnostic screen will start up, pressing menu repeatedly while on this screen will give you an opportunity to calibrate the screen. If you are looking for a solution on how to do something else, please post additional information and I will do my best to assist.
