I took the back off my Garmin Nuvi 2797 to change the battery and now my screen is black. It won't turn on or off. but I know it's working because it beeps when I get near a school. Can you help me?

Open the unit back up and reseat the ribbon cable that goes to the screen. It is either not connected or is not seated properly. See attached video.

Nuvi 2797lmt always default to 20% brightness

Are you sure that you have it correctly connected to battery source and if so hold the right hand top corner of the screen for 30 seconds and it should go into diagnostic mode allowing you to see what the battery status is.

I have EXACTLY the same problem with a brand new 2797... but have concluded that I must return it to Garmin as I can't see the screen during daylight hours; tried EVERYTHING... was this your "solution"?

To download WebUpdater and update the software:
