Hi,

This is a Common Problem in Garmin GPS known as White Screen of Death.Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.he LCD display has it's own IC chips (Integrated circuits) that receive data from the main board and convert it to a visual readout. Having repaired many Nuvi's myself, any problems with the display are usually confined to the display itself. Now,if you dropped it, there's a possibility that the internal flex cable has partially come loose from the board. However, you can't tell that unless the Nuvi is opened up. I have seen Nuvi's with an all white screen, half white, half OK...all which were caused by a defective screen. Prices vary based upon whether you want a new screen or a used one. The price can be anywhere between $45 and up.
Please don't try to do this yourself. I have received many horror stories from people who have destroyed their Nuvi by attempting to take it apart.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 200 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

Nuvi 200 displays Garmin screen but does nothing else. Why? It does not change the screen at all. It has't been used very much.


Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

I just bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 and just stays black screen?


My Garmin 200 did the same on two occasions. On the bottom to the left of the serial number is a tiny reset button. Press that using a pencil point and all will be reset. And you don't lose any map data, so don't worry!
