When you first power on using lower right (power) button, wait 6 seconds for the intro screen to finish. The upper left (up) button increases screen contrast. Hold this one down for a few seconds and the screen should darken. The middle left (down) button decreases contrast.

If this doesn't work, try turning off by holding the power button.
Hold down upper left AND upper right while turning unit on. This initiates diagnostic mode and contrast is darker by default. Bottom of screen is a button test area which darkens a symbol for each successful button press. Use it to diagnose a button problem. Turn off power and on again to leave diagnostic mode.

I wish you success playing with the Etrex.

Have power but no Display


Bonnin, Can you see a faint image on the screen? Have you tried to hookup an external monitor?
IF you can see a faint image on the screen, and a normal image on the external monitor, you have a bad power inverter (for the lcd screen) or a bad back light (in the lcd screen).
Take laptop to a shop to have them verify.
Hope this helps.

Hi my sony vio vgn txn 15p video is faint


If when you say faint you mean you can barely make out an image then the problem is most likely the backlight inverter in the screen assembly has gone bad. If what you mean is that the brightness got turned all the way down then it's just a matter of adjusting the brightness of the screen by holding down the function key (Fn) and pressing the LCD screen brightness adjustment keys noted usually by a picture of a sun or something similar accompanied by an up or down arrow.

Iam trying to down load our airline tickets .i have replaced my black toner, but when i print out our tickets thay are so faint as to be unusable for presentation to airline check in


If your printer print faintly, and your toners are not low, the problem lies with the imaging unit. What happens as the printer is used, a film of toner builds up on the developer/toner blades. This build up starts to block the toner that ultimately makes the image on the paper.

This can be fixed one of two ways. You can buy a new imaging unit for around $100+ but, eventually the film of toner will build up again and they you can buy another one. Or you can take your imaging unit apart and clean the developer blade(s) and you will be good to go. It will take about 20 to 40 minutes the first time you do it. I have instructions on how to do this in my Tips section.

Our Laser printer doesn't print on the left had side of the paper--well, very faint--the right side is just fine. I just replaced the cartridge. What is the problem?


If your printer prints like this:
657b300.jpg with the any color printing faintly down the page, then the problem is with the developer blades in the imaging unit. What happens is there are metal blades that meter the amount of toner that gets put on to the drum that makes the image on the paper. The toner is made up of fine particules of plastic. As the printer prints, some of this toner collects on the edge of the developer blades causing less and less toner to make it onto the page making the print look faint.

To correct this problem, you either need to buy a new imaging unit or clean the developer blades. There is a document on the internet that gives a detail instructions on how to do this, but, the link no longer works. I have a copy of this document, I will try to post it if people are interested.

Dark LCD screen. Very faint image.


Internally it has a inverter board which go bad sometimes or due to heat sometimes get unpluged.So you will have to open it make sure when you do there is no power going to it.Look at the wires make sure they are snug and try again.
good Luck

Geko 101 wouldn't turn off. Removed/inserted batts, wont turn on


Press the power on button while holding OK until the unit switches on- that puts the 101 into Service mode. Then press the up key until the screen contrast is about right. (or press the down key... to make it darker). You'll be able to see if all the tests pass. Then when you're happy with the setting, turn off.

out put connection from the video card to the LCD monitor is loose or malfunctioning. check the connection that leaves the video card to the monitor, ensure its secure and clean, if still not working then its either the video card or the cable connecting to the LCD.
