First you need to disconnect it from external power, then flip up the antenna to see the reset button. Press the reset button. Then reconnect it to external power, it should turn on automatically and work normally.

How I fix it?


If the screen does not come on that is a serious issue--if it comes on but does not respond it is possible there is a reset for the unit--get in touch with the model number with Garmin---many of the GPS makers have a flat fee for a unit if it needs repairs---weigh the cost of repair versus the cost of replacement of the unit.

Touchscreen not responding.


There are three levels of fixes, please try them in order:
1. Reset the GPS using the Reset button, on the back, just under the Antenna Hinge. Resetting will turn off the GPS, and then turn it back on, if connected to power. Test, if fixed, great, otherwise, go to fix 2.
2. Turn the power off, then press and hold the powerbutton for up to 2 minutes. The GPS will turn on, and display a "PreBoot Mode" message. When that message disappears, and the screen calibration screen appears, follow the on-screen instructions, and you are fixed. If you still cannot use the touch screen, repeat fixes 1 and 2 several times, just to be sure., then go to fix 3
3. The touch-screen glass has probably broken or lost its connection with the GPX motherboard. You can order new touch screen glass on the web and install yourself, if you are techy in nature, otherwise do a search for "garmin nuvi 660 repair" and choose your service.

Touchscreen not responding


Try to find how to calibrate the touch screen in the users manual.

Screen orientation


PDAs that use touch screens have a very thin membrane over the screen itself that responds to pressure. If this membrane becomes damaged, which it sounds like what has happened, then you're more than likely going to need to have it replaced. You can try doing it yourself, but it's WAY up on the difficulty factor because of the complexity of the connection to the circuit board on the Vx.
To determine if your unit is, in fact, actually damaged, you should first make sure that you've syncronized the unit (which may not be possible if you don't have it set to automatically activate HotSync when the device is attached) then do a "hard reset" to restore it to the factory default. To do this, hold the reset button while simultaneously holding the power button for, at least, three seconds. You will get a message asking you to press up on the control pad to reset to factory defaults. Once the unit is reset, try the screen again... touching even the outer areas to see if there's any response. If it reacts, or beeps at all, then it may be an issue of recalibrating (using the "Digitizer") once it's fully reset. If not, it will need repair/replacement.
