Question about GPS

1 Answer

I dropped my garmin and the little button that turns it on and off popped out. I used a pen tip to turn it on and off when I wasn't in the car but now it has locked the screen and I can't get it unlocked. Is there a way to open it so I can put the little on/off switch back in without damaging it.

I would say to just contact garmin and see about sending it in to them for a new one or purchasing a new one of same brand and than returning the old one but as far as the dissemblance of it you would probably cause more errors or issues by opening it up


hope this helps

My garmin nuvi 260 gps wont come on and have already replaced power/ charging chord. What might b the problem?


Sometimes you have to do a reset/reboot on your systems. Turn your Garmin backwards and if you look along the label you can see a little circle that says reset. Plug the power cord into the Garmin and with a pen or your finger nail push the reset button for 5 seconds and flip the power switch on the Garmin. I have done this a couple times, after the reset you may have to reload map packs if you have already updated your Garmin.

I dropped my Garming Nuvi 260 this past weekend and when I turn it on it goes to a screen saying Updating GPS Firmware 1% then jumps to Updating GPS Firmware Complete. It keeps popping up with these...


Inspect the bottom of your Nuvi 260. According to the owner's manual, some models have a small "Reset" button on the bottom. If yours does, you'll use this to reset the Nuvi 260.Press and hold the "Reset" button for several seconds, until the Nuvi powers off and powers back on. Next try
to slide the power switch on top all the way to the left to reset your Nuvi if it does not have a "Reset" button. Performing this action resets the system.
Next try a hard reset.
Slide the power switch to "Off."
Press your finger against the screen in the lower-right corner. Hold your finger in this position.
Slide the power switch to "On" to turn the Nuvi on. Continue holding your finger on the screen until the pop-up window appears. When it does, press "Yes" to reset your Nuvi to its factory settings.

Hope this works but dropping may have caused internal damage. If this does not work you may have to send it back to Garmin for service. I will attach a link for Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa.

I lost my manual for setting time on a White Deuce Watch. Where can I find instructions


You will need something with a fine point, like a pen. Turn the watch inside out and you will see two small buttons that are used to adjust the time. Place the tip of the pen on the top button and press it 4 times - or until you see the P or A pop up (PM or AM) or time (hour or minute) or date (day or month) flash. Then use the tip of the pen for the bottom button and press it until you get the correct hour of the day. Hit the top button again to get to the minutes. Press the bottom button until you get the correct minute of the day. Press the top button again until you get back to deuce blinking on the watch and you are done.

Garmin Nuvi 205 WIll not power on


Press and hold the reset button with a ball point pen for eight seconds.
The reset button is nearly invisible. On the bottom of the unit is a grey label with a bunch of writing on it. There's a little splotch of printing with a circle, crosshairs, and the word "Reset." You'll ahve to look carefully. You can't actually SEE the button. It's beneath the circle on the label.
Use a ball point pen, press in at the circle and hold for eight seconds.

GArmin 205W won't turn back on


I recently ran into the same problem, my 205w would not power back on. I logged in Garmin website under repair solutions. Said hit reset button using pen or stylis. My 205w does not have a
reset button....further comments in the reset instructions said if your device does not a button,
slide on switch to the left and hold 10 to 15 seconds it should power on while your holding it.
it took 12 seconds for me... This was refered to as a soft reset

Hope this helps, Enjoy!

My Wacom Bamboo Tablet Pen: only the pen was dropped. Now the eraser works but the pen tip does not. Neither do the buttons. The tablet itself does not pick up the pen tip's presence, but it works perfect...


Try replacing the pen nib. Take out the little nib with a tweezer or something along those lines and replace it with a new one. There should be a few of them when you bought the tablet. Also, try looking at the tablet properties.

Pen Won't STOP Working


Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...
