Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen not working

The touch screen works sometimes but it not calibrated so even when it does work it doesn't. It has not been dropped or damaged, however the owner of the Nuvi just updated it and down loaded new firmware so I think this could be the issue but we hooked it back up to the pc and installed the old firmware still didnt work so we up dated it again. Still nothing. Also been having problems with the mount power cable not staying plugged in. So its not charging properly. I called Garmin which I advise agaisnt the wait was 40 min. They told me I would have to send it in they would replace the screen for 125$

You dont have much option, if the touch screen failos or becomes intermittent then its dying or dead and can only be fixed by a total replacement
Cheaper to buy another GPS

If the Touch Screen isnt working, have you tried to recalibrate the screen?

Turn off the Nuvi and then back on.

Slide Power key to the right (lock )

Hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds untilthe calibration screen appears.

Follow the on-screen instructions...

Also the 2 screws you took off once you done that you would have to use a plastic pry tool to lift cover up

Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen "touch" works intermittently


Recalibration has nothing to do with repairing this problem. If the touchscreen is non-responsive, how are you going to recalibrate it when it doesn't recognize the key presses?

The problem is caused by a defective touchscreen. SHARP substitued a different touchscreen into the 6xx series that fails even when the glass isn't damaged. The problem is caused by a defect in the manufacturing process where the touchscreen connections becomes detached from the tail that plugs into the board.

The touchscreen connections between the screen and the tail are made from conductive ink that can fracture, most likely caused when pressing on the screen over time.

These defective screens can be identified by a white tail cap at the end of the tail, whereas the original touchscreens have a maroon tail cap. The original touchscreens will only fail if the glass has been broken.

I only use the original touchscreens for all of my repairs.
