The NUVI 780 tells me it is currently locked and to unlock slid the button to the left. However, this does not unlock the system.


Most likely the switch is bad. Do you feel it click when you put it back to the center position? Is it in the center position? How does the switch work when you use it to turn the unit on & off? That switch has (2) sections to it.... one for on/off and one for screen lock. It's possible 1/2 of the switch is bad. I've replaced them before.

How do I lock the screen on the Garmin nuvi 500? (not lock the device--just the screen)


on the power switch you should see a slide where you slide it to the right. This will put it in safe mode operation, meaning you cannot touch the buttons until you are stopped. If you do not have the slide switch and you have the push button switch, then navigate to tools/settings/security. You will have two options, the first one is garmin lock, don't worry about this one. Look at the other one, it says safe mode. turn this on. The screen will only be locked as long as you're moving. When you stop, it will not be locked anymore until you start moving again. If you touch the screen while moving, it will ask you if you want to turn safe mode off. Hope this helps.

Touch screen wont work


Try resetting the unit. Oppisite side of on switch (left side) lift rubber cover, notice the button and slide switch. With unit on,use a pen and slide the switch up and then back down and trhen hit the button on top. that should rest the unit. Also you look in the manual for reset.

My nuvi 780 suddenly won't power on. Used it this morning and then a short while later it's broken!


Solution A:

1. Disconnect from power source (automobile cradle and/or usb cable)
2. Slide the power button right into the lock position.
3. Slide the power button to the left and hold it for 10 seconds.
4. Your unit should have powered on after you released the power button

Solution B:

1. Disconnect from power source (automobile cradle and/or usb cable)
2. Slide the power button right into the lock position.
3. Apply light pressure anywhere on the touch screen with your finger.
3. Slide the power button to the left and hold it for 10 seconds.
4. Your unit should have powered on after you released the power button

This worked for me... hope it works for you. - Happy Holidays!

turn off your unit with the slide switch on the top. Hold down the repeat button or the one beside the slide switch and then put the slide switch back to the on position. Then select hdd tools then format. exit out and turn the switch off and back on and it should work
