Question about Garmin eTrex GPS Receiver
having problems with the image on screen. I can only see the pages very faintly, making the GPS unusable. I can see that the pages can be changed and signals are being picked up. Greatfull for any help
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.
