Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

White lines across screen

The unit powers on fine, but shows white lines like bars horizontally, which makes it extremely difficult to use. I tried resetting, but to no effect. What gives?

Normally RCA"S are common with this problem. Some of them have a knob in the back the adjust the brightness. This will sometime get rid of the lines. I did it to my RCA and it worked like a charm.

I have 5 white dotted lines running horizontally across my nuvi1490lmt. Does anybody know why this would be?


Yes, this is caused by a defective LCD display, There is nothing that you can do to make them go away. It is caused by a defective transistor in the LCD display logic that is either stuck on or off. The transistor controls a single horizontal line across the screen. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the display.

Lines on screen garmin nuvi


Sorry to say but this is a sign of a faulty LCD display. The white lines are caused by a defective transistor on the display that is either stuck on or off causing all of the pixels of that line to be turned on or off. The LCD display can be replaced. More info can be found here:

Faulty screen, horizontal lines


Battery is stuffed, replace it. White lines is the early signs or the LCD is damaged and needs to be replaced.

DO the Garmin receivers work with Windows ?


Yes the Garmin DPS units do work with Windows. There should be a USB cable in the box the GPS came in. The smaller end plugs into the GPS and the larger end into one of your computer's USB ports. The GPS screen should come on and show the Garmin name. Then the Loading Maps title should show briefly. A graphic should show up on the bottom part of the screen that looks like a desktop computer connected to a GPS. A horizontal white line should then appear about half way up the GPS screen which should turn to green. You should then be able to see your GPS listed as a removable drive in Windows Explorer, or whatever file management program you use.

If you are unable to see the GPS unit there is a plug in available on their website called the Garmin Communicator Plug-in which should help you see the GPS unit in Windows or your internet browser. IF you still cannot see it then try and switch to another USB port on your computer. If you have anything already plugged into a USB port and your computer can see the item, then try and plug your Garmin into that port. If you still cannot see the unit then there may be something wrong with the unit or your cable. If you still have a warranty you may want to take your unit back to the store you purchased it from. Windows should definitely see the unit without having to load any special driver.

My 3 year old Garmin Etrex Vista just started displaying horizontal lines across the entire display. Any suggestions?


Try updating the unit's software via the Garmin.com website. This may fix it as there was a satellite launched which was causing problems with some Garmin units.

The display of the C70 has stopped working. Instead of a picture it only shows either vertical bands of color or just black/white vertical/horizontal lines. Occasionally the display comes back but only for...


I recognize the problem. It mostly occurs when the plotter is exposed to moist during some days. The contactstrip which connects the computer to the screen gets moist and does not conduct in an optimal way. The result is a non readable screen with stripes

The solution is simple: press on the edges of the screen and the contact is re-established.

I had the same problem so I replaced my 152 with a spare unit. It did the same thing. This led to believe it was the cable. I removed a few kinks and a bend at the unit; and it seems to be fine. Seems too simple and the bends were not that severe, but it is working (for now).

Have you tried resetting the unit? It sounds like you may have a problem that Garmin needs to address. I would try to reset it first, then make sure you have the latest firmware loaded on the unit. If you still have the problem, it may have to be sent to Garmin for repair.
