DO NOT SEND TO A GARMIN REPAIR SHOP. I went through several iterations of piss poor service with them wanting an exceptional amount of money. I tore the unit apart (very easy), carefully pulled the LCD connector, wiped with rubbing alcohol, and replaced. I did my best at resealing the unit again, and it works perfectly. Took half an hour of my time and cost nothing.

Garmin's customer service people were polite but useless, but their repair depot subcontractor were useless and jerks!

My Garmin c340 has won't turn on, screen is completly dark unit is charged


I has the same problem with a streetpilot 540.. It wouldn't turn on, even once charged. There was no reset button under the serial number. However, prise off the grey plastic square plate on the front panel which goes around the screen. ( there's even a little space for your fingernail under the Garmin logo). The reset button is under that plate. Press that with a screwdriver then turn on. My unit turned on once reset.

This problem has happened to me before turn the gps unit over and clean off the gold colored conductors on the bottom take a paper clip and touch the 1st and 4th pins together this resets the unit be sure it is the 1st and 4th pins on the opposite side of the little power connector though.

Some 235s had a problem with the contrast setting. When the contrast is set to full the screen turns black.

When you turn on the GPS and the screen goes black, try tapping the left arrow on the track pad a few times. You should see the screen start to lighten. If that doesn't work, tap the power key and try tapping the left arrow a few times.
