It sounds as if a small amount of water or moisture has entered the GPS.

The 2730 is now a discontinued product, and if bought new, is likely out of warranty. If purchased recently (less than a year) as a factory refurbished device, it would normally be covered under a Garmin Factory warranty. Water damage however, may not be covered.

If it is no longer covered, Garmin offers a "flat rate" repair for $170. Learn how to go about obtaining this service at the site below:

A couple things come to mind... at $170, to me - it doesn't seem to make much sense to repair, when "like new" factory refurbished GPS units can be had for the same / less money. The refurbs come with 1 year warranties (instead of a 90 day type after repair) & latest version of maps.

Lastly, if you don't want to do either of the suggestions above, you could attempt removing the back cover and allowing the device to fully dry out in direct sunlight for a day or two. Reassemble and operate the GPS again. Doing this sooner rather than later will increase the chances of successful drying with having permanent water damage.

Good luck!

Rinsed my humidifier with water and wiped the base down, refilled it and now it seems to be making the mist in the base butbisnt making it's way out of the mouth of the dolphin


The tubing to the mouth of the dolphin or the misting nozzle is clogged with mineral buildup and scale.
To clean this, do the following.

Empty the water in the tank and replace it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes, then turn it ON. If mist does not appear within 10 minutes from the mouth of the dolphin. Turn the unit OFF and allow it to soak over night. In the morning, turn the unit ON and allow it to run. Once the mist appears where it should, run the unit until the tank is half empty. Then empty the tank of the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit until it is empty. This will flush all the remaining solution from the tank, tubing & nozzle.

In the future I would recommend using Bottled Distilled Water on a regular basis, rather than tap water. Doing so, will eliminate the problem of scaling.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Touch screen works intermitently


Have you tried a touch screen calibration? Here is the procedure:
Turn off your Nuvi. Then hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly while turning it back on.Release the power key when the Garmin screen appears.
I have attached a link to the owners manual which explains this procedure on page 41.

I have a Cool Mist V3500 humidifier. The fan


TRY POURING IN SOME WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR AND RUNNING IT. THE VINEGAR LOOSEN UP ANY SCALE AND JUNK. AFTER RUNNING UNIT FOR AWHILE, DRAIN OUT ANY REMAINING LIQUID AND ADD DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER. RUN UNIT AGAIN. THEN DRAIN OUT ANY LIQUID. NOW THE UNIT SHOULD WORK AS NORMAL. IN THE FUTURE, TRY USING DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER.

Air-o-swiss 7135 humidifier not misting


Ours has done the same thing after only 2 weeks. From article research, it appears that this occurs to everyone after cleaning it with the EZ Cal that is recommended. From looking at our unit and figuring out how it works, it appears as though the Ultrasonic Vibration membrane has stopped working. This particular piece is responsible for vibrating the water and making water mist particles which are blown out with the air. We will be calling the manufacturer on Monday to register a complaint and request a replacement unit.

Touch screen failure


Sometimes it pays to procrastinate. My 250c gps was left in a drawer for a year and a half as I hesitated to pitch it. I turned it on recently and everything works good as new. The battery was still fully charged! It must have dried out over time.

Humidifier mist won't come out of tube


sounds like the small fan that is located in the base isn`t pushing the mist out. unplug it then take all the screws out of the base. there are screws under the black foam stands too. be careful not to touch anything that looks like live wires while you look inside then look inside while it is pluged in. it should turn. check for something blocking it like lint or dirt..you may be able to clean around the shaft with w d 40
