Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver
I've had my legend now for about week, and all of a sudden it's backlight no longer works. The little "light" icon shows up in the bottom right corner of the screen, and shows itself lighting up when I press the power on/light on button, but no light comes on. I've checked the settings and it's set for 15 seconds. As a side note, all of a sudden the display is going blank except for a thin line that runs from top to bottom. I suspect this is the WAAS problem we've been hearing about, but both things happening at the same time????? Anyone else had a backlight stop working??
Had that problem too, it's a connection problem with the lcd screen. when you take the whole thing apart you will see 2 brass connectors that lead to the lcd screen (just under the thumb stick) I found mine was just a little sensitive to movement and one of the contacts had too much of a spacing i tighened it with a pinch of the pliers and seemed to work for me.. dont try if youre not sure what your doing, have it repaired by garmin. I'll try and get some pictures...
