Touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi 1350 doesn't work. How do I fix this.

Try recalibrating it using the following method:

Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx, 14xx, 24xx, 25xx Series: Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then push down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen. Press all of the prompted dots.

Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

This will recalibrate your touchscreen to the LCD display.

If this doesn't resolves your problem. then your touchscreen may be defective and may need to be replaced.

Touchscreen not responding. Frozen

Two thing can cause this. If your unit is running firmware version 5.3, this version has a bug where the touchscreen will work for about 5 seconds then the unit will lock up. Updating the unit to version to version 5.4 will fix the problem. More info can be found here:

If you are running firmware version 4.9 or 5.4 and the touchscreen still does not respond, then the touchscreen will need to be replaced. On the Nuvi 7xx, the touchscreen may be soldered to the LCD display, so if you don't have any soldering experience, please have a professional replace the touchscreen. More info can be found here:

The touchscreen on my samsung e900 does not work, i cannot make calls etc. the touchscreen will not work, how do i fix it?

I am Ashish from India. First check that Which part is not worked like the touchscreen or LCD? Was it damaged? If your LCD is damaged than replace it with new one with original or Chinese one. If your touch pad is damaged than change only touch pad not entire LCD and Touch pad. Than check your phone again. If your phone still give a problem than flashing the software. If you still have problem than mail me on

Thank You
