Piece of lid broke off

Sand the area on bottom of piece along with areas surrounding the broken piece. Get another small piece of plastic that is large enough to cover the broken piece and adjacent areas and apply the glue to that using a good epoxy for adhesion. Let it set up and it will hold - trust me.

Call the manufacturer of the mixer. If it's a replaceable part they would know and they might even stock it. If it's still under warranty they'd probably replace it.

No voice after replacing battery

First, you need to tell us what model of Garmin that you have. We have seen many problems result from customers taking their GPS apart and breaking something while changing the battery.

You may have the speaker unplugged or have broken the contacts on the headphone jack which the speaker audio passes through. Please see this link for more info:

The small lip that hold the power cord to the unit snapped off. Need to know do I have to send it back to Garmin for repairs.

Lightly scuff the plastic a little ways out around the broken piece. Put some vaseline on the back connector and slide into place. Mix up some JB weld [or similar] and pack a little ball against the area that needs reinforcement. Keep smoothing and packing until it firms up. Let dry, and pull the connector back out. There ya go.

Battery connection

Take it back to where you got it. It should not be broken after such a short time?

Missing small adapter part

Hi marshaw40,

I'd recommend you attempt to contact Garmin support to see if they can supply you with this part. Their phone number is 1-800-800-1020 (U.S.). If they are not able to supply the part by itself then you may have to purchase a new power cord for the unit.

Best Regards,

Garmin 350 power button broken

This is a common problem with the Nuvi series. It's a design flaw. The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.

The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down the button, the solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually break off the main PC board. This is a design flaw and could have been easily prevented by wedging a small piece of plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support.

Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.

I have repaired many of these before.

If you would like for me to repair your GPS for a very reasonable price, please email me at KS3R at sharc dot net. I repair the unit and reinforce the switch so it won't happen again.

GPSmap 60Csx power up problems

I had the problem where I ended up disassembling the Garmin and adding a small piece of plastic to the on/off button. For some reason the push button on the top does not reach the one on the circuit board.
