Turn off the device.
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.

at that point release the screen from upper-left corner and touch the press black point on the screen to calibarate it.

should be fine after that.

thanks

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.

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.

Garmin nuvi 350, touch screen isn't working. Was


From the Garmin troubleshooting page:

"
Non-Responsive Screen
You cannot control the device using the touch screen.
Dirty Screen
It may seem mundane, but dust dirt and other particulates can greatly reduce the function of the touch screen, follow these simple steps to clean your screen:
If your device has a screen protector, remove it.
Spray a bit of water or formulated spray onto a microfiber cloth.
Wipe thoroughly.
Using a dry microfiber cloth, immediately dry the surface.
Replace the screen protector with a new one if desired.
Resetting the Device Without the Screen
Follow the steps in the Factory reset subsection to reset your device without use of the touch screen."

Or, if the screen is broken, you can order a replacement screen. There are guides online for replacing them.

*In the meantime, if you have a smartphone, there are many apps that you can use as a GPS / mapping tool.

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"
