Cannot see screen but it turns on

I push the button and the screen comes on for a second then fades away. I can hear that it is on by moving to increase the sound at the side of the garmin.

Have you tried resetting the unit?

Remove the face cover (GENTLY pry it loose by the fingernail groove directly under the GARMIN logo), press the RESET button, then re-attach front cover... this is covered in the owners manual which is available online at garmin.com /support /downloads

You might try this... point a bright flashlight at the screen while it's ON, but dark... see if you can see the normal screens, but just dark. If so, you've got a LCD backlight issue. It could the backlight dimmer circuit got damaged somehow, and if a Reset dows not help, sounds like it's repair time.

When I switch the device on it comes up with press dot screen


Have you tried a screen calibration? Turn off the unit then press and hold the upper left of the screen as you turn it on. A dot will show up on screen and then press the dot firmly as it moves around the screen. When it is done it will say screen calibration complete.
I also assume you tried a reset by pressing the reset button or on the newer units just hold the power button while turning it on for about 15 seconds until it reboots.

Gps not picking up charging, goes on for a few second and turns off! Gps screen turns blank or fades aways What do i need to do???


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Power Switch will not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on


When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.

Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.

Garmin Nuvi 750 will not turn on. Any ideas on


Hi Jessica,

Move the on/off power switch to the left and hold it there for at least 30 seconds and see if it comes back on. I know there was a bug in a firmware version that makes the unit "bricked" after a certain date. The only way to fix it if the reset didn't fix it is to disconnect the battery inside, reboot the unit and install the firmware fix.

GPS wont turn on


Dont push it too hard you could dislodge it from the motherboard and then you miht as well throw it away! Cost 3 arms and 4 legs to fix.

replace the battery first and see if that helps as batteries can fade out after a year or two

Tom tom go 710 wont switch on


Press the tiny reset button...

You'll need the pointy end of a paperclip or a pin.

Turn your TomTom upside down and look at the underneath, with the screen facing away from you.

Starting at the back and moving towards the screen, you'll see a small traingular-shaped piece of rubber, then a plastic area with a small hole to the left, then the circuit board with all the little gold connectors.

It's that small hole that's the reset button, push your paper clip or pin in there. Your TomTom should reset straight away, but sometimes it takes a few tries for various lengths of time.

Enjoy your newly restored TomTom!
