Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver
This could get a little dicey, especially if you are not comfortable working around electronics. First try a "Master Reset". This is done by turning the unit off, then pushing the "OK" + "Page" + "On" buttons at the same time.
If this does not fix it, then you may need to take the cover off the unit. This is where if you are not comfortable around electronic circuit boards, etc, I would suggest sending it back to Garmin. There are six small phillips head screws on the back side of the unit. With a small screwdriver, remove the screws. Be VERY careful with the screws on the right side of the unit (unit facing down with antenna hinge away from you). This hold the endcap to the antenna which is spring loaded. If you take the endcap off, you need to be careful with the spring that can pop out and easily become lost. Once the back is loose, gently pry the two halves apart. There is a small plastic plug with a red and black wire in a socket on the back of the circuit board. GENTLY use a small screwdriver or something similar and remove the plug from the socket. Leave it out for a short period of time (30-60 seconds), then plug it back in. Reassemble the GPS making certain the rubber gasket between the two sections is not crimped or kinked. Gradually tighten all of the phillips head screws in a criss-cross pattern until all are snug. Turn the GPS on as usual. If it is still locked up and the reset routine I described above does not work, it will most likely need to be repaired by the factory.

With the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.
