Press and hold the upper-left corner of the screen and turn the power on.
Keep holding the screen and release the power button when the screen is on. Keep holding the screen for next 30 secs and u will see a "press button" on the screen.

It is working ok but the screen is too bright, without adjust Is it a hardware or software problem? thanks


You should be able to adjust it using Tools - Brightness. If you can't it is more likely a software glitch, as long as all the other touch controls on the screen work.

You can update the software here.

You can also do two types of reset.

How to Reset a Garmin 1350 by Kefa Olang, Demand Media Whether you're on a local or national business trip, a Garmin Nuvi 1350 GPS can help you find your way around. However, if the device is not functioning as expected, performing a reset is a troubleshooting step that can solve common problems. A soft reset reboots the GPS's hardware without deleting saved data, but a master reset clears saved data and settings to restore the device to the factory state.
Step 1 Press and hold the "Power" button for a few seconds to reset your Garmin Nuvi 1350 if it's not performing as expected. This soft reset reboots the device's hardware without deleting saved files.
Step 2 Turn off the Garmin Nuvi 1350 if you're still experiencing problems, and then disconnect it from a power outlet, if it's connected to one.



Step 2
Touch and hold the lower-right corner of the screen while powering on the device. Release the power button when the screen turns on, but keep pressing down on the screen. Step 4 Touch "Yes" when the "Do you really want to erase all user data?" message appears on the screen. If the text is in another language other than English, touch the button on the right to confirm your selection.
Step 5 Wait for the GPS to reset automatically, and then follow the on-screen guided prompts to reconfigure it.

Garmin 265W After cleaning the screen with a duster--switched on, the screen will not respond to touch, I have updated software but cant use garmin as screen wont respond. cant hard reset again as screen...


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.

If I found a garmin nuvi gps it got a locked on it how can I reset it or something


Most GPS navigation devices from Garmin has a reset function which allows user to access a Maintenance Mode screen with system information, diagnostic details or perform the reset function to restore Garmin Nuvi or other series unit to its original default factory settings.

Depending on which model of Garmin GPS unit you're using, the following routine can reset the Garmin device to original factory loaded settings, or bring up the Maintenance Mode with access to System Information and View Diagnostics screen, where users can see various logs, and of course, clear all user data (reset to factory defaults) or clear Waypoints.

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Hack above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Trick above works on Garmin nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series unit. In fact, there is a video demo by user of Garmin Nuvi 360 on how to perform the hidden reset function.



Hope helps. (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Non-responsive touchscreen, cursor flashes top left will not allow to input pin code, loads maps and all buy no touch screen function, also did reset on back a few times nothing. Ken


I have a non-working Nuvi 650 with same problem. Garmin tech support says they do not support the Nuvi 650 and I will have to buy another one. My Garmin was only 2 years old when it failed.
I doubt I will be buying another Garmin.

Garmin Nuvi 770, Unit powers on, touch screen works, then it won't, then it does, then it wont, then...you get the idea.


There is a reset button under the frame around the screen. Carefully pry the frame up, there is a fingernail slot at one point. Once up, push the reset button and you may be back in business. If reset does not do it, you will have to go to garmin.com and speak with a tech from the service center on how to proceed.

Touch screen not functioning properly. Press one key, get another


The touch screen on Garmin Nuvi 660 is not working at all. It turns on, but when I touch the screeen, nothing happens. Could it be the battery. It was low, so I charged it for 45minutes, then the gps screen dimmed and turned off after just 10-15 minutes of "messing with it"

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.
