If this happens in your car you have purchased the wrong type of cable it thinks that you are connected to you PC, it will still charge the unit but you cant use it. This cable is meant for PC use only.

Purchase the correct cable for use in the car for charging only make sure that the online shop that you use specifies this.

I can hear my Garmin 660 turn on and off but nothing shows on the sacreen

This indicates that the GPS is operating correctly in that you can hear sound but there is no picture on the screen. The display may be black (not lit) or white. Sometimes the image may be distorted with splotches or lines.

It's most likely, that your LCD display has failed. Sometimes the backlight has failed and the image will be very hard to see. If the LCD has failed completely then you may not see any image on the screen at all.

This is a very fixable problem. Replacing the display will resolve the problem.

Computer image shows when plugged in

What you have is the charge screen is what you normally get when using the incorrect lead in your car as it thinks it is connected to the PC, it will still charge the unit if there are no problems.

First buy a new lead from the Garmin Store or another reputable supplier and fully charge the unit overnight.

If this does not work I suggest that you replace the unit battery it maybe faulty this would probably cause the problems that you are having, especially if the unit is not holding charge.

No more help files? I can't view images?

Depending on how long you have had the unit is what you might want to look at in taking it back to where you bought it, but I'm not real clear on what exactly is going on. Is it that the screen is always blank or what?
