    screen is black when powered

  • Zcyka Sep 25, 2008

    After powering up and working normally for a varying, but relatively brief, period, the screen goes "clear" except for a thin horizontal (along the long axis of the GPS) line about one pixel wide across the screen. It cannot be shut off when this happens, but must be removed from the source of power.

    Same problem with screen going blank with thin horizontal line across. Changed batteries, cleaned contacts, adjusted tension springs on battery door, tried alternate power (12v) conncetion. Problem still present.

I power up the unit and after various periods of time, it goes blank except for a thin line across the entire screen. I have changed batteries, readjusted the tension springs in the battery door, checked the plug, etc. Problem still present

Same Problem. I fixed mine with a baseball bat, hammer, and a cold beer. Lesson learned: NEVER BUY DELPHI AGAIN. NEVER..... Tell your friends. Delphi = POS

Will not turn on


When holding the power button, to turn on the device, the screen pixelates dark and then goes blank. If I continue to hold the power button the screen will continue to pixelate dark and then go blank. In the end, the device still will not turn on.
