You may try to replace it by yourself... Even I wouldn't advise you to do so. You can find spare parts here http://www.best-price.com/search/landing/query/garmin+replacement+parts/s/google/altk/Miscellaneous+Smart/koid/6251975980/backrub4/1/ But My best suggestion is to take it to a REPAIR CENTER to have it fixed. Are some connections between the screen and the board only a professional is able to do... But if you live in North America you have to know that Garmin discontinued it's line there...
Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020. You can order the cradle part for your Forerunner 201 for $6.54 plus $8.00 shipping. You can also get the complete charger on Ebay as low as $20.50 including shipping. Thats the best I could find.
It sounds as if a small amount of water or moisture has entered the GPS.
The 2730 is now a discontinued product, and if bought new, is likely out of warranty. If purchased recently (less than a year) as a factory refurbished device, it would normally be covered under a Garmin Factory warranty. Water damage however, may not be covered.
If it is no longer covered, Garmin offers a "flat rate" repair for $170. Learn how to go about obtaining this service at the site below:
A couple things come to mind... at $170, to me - it doesn't seem to make much sense to repair, when "like new" factory refurbished GPS units can be had for the same / less money. The refurbs come with 1 year warranties (instead of a 90 day type after repair) & latest version of maps.
Lastly, if you don't want to do either of the suggestions above, you could attempt removing the back cover and allowing the device to fully dry out in direct sunlight for a day or two. Reassemble and operate the GPS again. Doing this sooner rather than later will increase the chances of successful drying with having permanent water damage.
