Yes, so long as the locking flap hasn't been damaged or lost.. They can be replaced but its a tricky job. I'd let an expert do it.

Touch screen doesn't respond. Garmin had me do everything including usb port to upgrade. After 45 minutes on the phone doing everything they said to do, they told me the unit was no longer able to...


The touchscreen is critical in using the Nuvi 660 - without there's no way to diagnose the problem from the outside. USB communication can still work, making software updates possible as far as it goes.

If it's not under warranty - opening the Nuvi 660 is a path to consider. Preferably by someone who's experienced with opening Garmin devices or (smart) phones. The Nuvi backcover is fitted with Hex / Torque screws - and is relatively easy to open with the right tools.

First area to look for is the flat cable connector of the touchscreen - reinserting the flatcable in the Printed Circuit Board connector. Be sure to disconnect the battery first. After reinserting the cable - connect the battery and try again if the touchscreen now works.

If the problem remains - clean the unit with pressured air - possibly removing contamination/dust causing (capacitive) shorts.

Garmin nuvi 660 boots up but will not respond to touchscreen


Two possibilities come to mind: the screen itself is defective and needs to be replaced, or perhaps it has just become disconnected. If you are moderately brave, you can repair this yourself. If not, look for a repair service.

Here is a step-by-step explanation of how to replace the screen. Look at it and decide if you think you are up to it. http://www.portatronics.com/guide/GPS-Repair-Guide/garmin-nuvi-660-screen-replacement.html

Before you order a new screen, look at steps 14 & 15 in the page above. It is possible that one of the small ribbon connectors has simply come out of its clip. If it has, carefully lift its connector latch (a small black tab), slide the loose ribbon cable back into place under the black tab and close the latch - and you've probably solved the problem. If not, search on line for a replacement screen. When you do, choose a vendor who includes the special tools (shown in the web page above).

Touch screen not responding


The first thing I suggest you try is a "reset" - open the GPS antenna and look behind it for a small round plastic button. The Garmin should re-start.

If the problem is still there, there are two possibilities: the screen itself is defective and needs to be replaced, or perhaps it has just become disconnected. If you are moderately brave, you can repair this yourself. If not, look for a repair service.

My Nuvi 760 boots to the calibrate screen page. When I touch the dots as requested it wont respond. Then I am unable to get past this page. I have tried a hard reset, power on , power off, even removed and...


The best clue you gave is that you removed and replaced the battery. When you did that, I'm guessing that you accidentally disconnected one of the three ribbons that connect the touch screen to the circuit board. (It's very easy to do that.) Solution: disassemble the case again and inspect the ribbons. Each should be attached to the circuit board by a thin black spring clip. If you find one is not connected, use the plastic case-separator tool to carefully lift the black clip, slide the ribbon under it, and re-close the black clip to hold the ribbon in place.

REPLACEING SCREEN ON G800


Hello,

To replace the screen of the samsung g800, get there appropriate screwdriver and follow the process below;
  1. Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Remove the six screws (two at the bottom are covered by rubber stoppers which are easily removed). You can now remove the battery compartment.
  2. Below you can see the battery cover removed. You now need to disconnect the circled ribbon connector. It attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the connector up to unplug it.
  3. Lift the circuit board up to reveal another connector. It attaches like the last one. Unplug this
  4. You can now remove the circuit board. Note that the ribbon running along the right of the circuit board, with the volume buttons at the end, is lightly stuck down with a tacky glue or double sided tape.
  5. Remove the grey part. Note that the ribbon with the camera button at the end is stuck down lightly. Next remove the four screws.
  6. Part of the slider can now be removed.
  7. Next remove the two rubber stoppers at the top of the phone to reveal two more screws. Remove the four screws.
  8. Remove the ribbon which is stuck to the black rectangle. It'll just peel back.
  9. Run your plastic tool all the way around the join of the front cover to unclip it.
  10. Lift the screen away from the phone at the point on the opposite side. The screen is stuck down lightly with double sided tape.
  11. You should now have the LCD removed.
  12. Turn the LCD screen over and remove all the green tape you see. You now need to detach a number or ribbons. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. All the other ribbons have a hinge which you need to flick up to release.
  13. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
Take care

How do i get a new ribbon that runs from the main board to the viewing screen of the garmin nuvi 660


Sounds like you took your unit apart. Sorry, you have to replace the entire LCD display. The flex cables are not replaceable. Hopefully you didn't damaged the LCD connector or the unit is now toast.

I lost the sensitivity because of some moisture formed inside the screen.. How much it costs to replace the screen?


Hi,before replacing the screen,why don't you dry out the LCD screen to get rid of the moisture,you can use a hand dryer to dry out the moisture of the screen after taking it out.If after drying the screen the problem remains,then you can go ahead to get a new screen.
Here is a detailed step on how to dissassemble your P1i;
STEP 1 Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver
  • First remove the battery cover, battery, memory card and stylus. Remove the three screws you see
STEP 2 Run your fingernail around the join of the back cover and then pry the back cover off
STEP 3 Now remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone
STEP 4
  • Now run your fingernail along the join of the front cover and you'll hear the clips, which hold the cover on, click. The front cover is on quite tight so use some force to pry the cover off
STEP 5 Remove the keypad and lift the part underneath from right to left, this will reveal two more screws. Remove these screws
STEP 6 Remove the metal plate that the screws were holding in place and you now have access to the ribbon which attaches the screen to the circuit board
STEP 7
  • Detach the ribbon to remove the LCD screen. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the ribbon up away from the circuit board to detach it
STEP 8 You have now removed the LCD screen then you dry, Reverse the whole process to reassemble. However,the LCD screen costs $92.if you have the reason to purchase it.
Thanks and take care

Typically this would need to come from Garmin or one of their manufacturing partners but sometimes one can find parts on Ebay.com.

How do you open a nuvi 660


The ribbon cables are clameped in place. The look like they would slide out from the connector if you pulled then hard enough,... you do NOT want to do that. The black portion of the connector is actually a hinged clamp. With the unit lying on a table, face up as it you were using it; lift the top screen half away for the bottom half and tilt it toward yourself. You should see the ribbon cable and the red & blk wires. For the wide center connector and the one on the right, the black piece hinges up an away from you (towards the top). Try the one on the right first. When you flip it up, the ribbon will pretty much fall out. Pry the wide center one on the ends, NOT in the center. The narrow one on the left tilts donw towrds you. For the antenna, the hinged peice is brown, and it flips up towards the right. This one does not just fall out. It needs some gentle wiggeling. Also, I was able to use a T6 torx, T5 seemed a little loose,... yo don't want to strip any screws or you'll be screwed. SpaceVector
