Re: BROKEN LCD SCREEN
I have seen this with cameras, and pocket TV sets.
It is best to send the unit back for factory service. Ask for an estimate before servicing.
The parts in your GPS are not generic parts. You can buy the screen from the manufacture and find that the circuit board under it is also broken or damaged.
You may also find that the cost of the screen replacement may approach the cost of a new unit. I have seen this on many small devices. In some models the screen module comes as part of a complete matched assembly.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Are the stripes like pixely (sharp stripes) or blurry (from background)?
You might have damaged the edge of the screen where the connections are and broke connections. These types of problems are impossible to fix. You need replacement panel witch can cost a lot. Cheaper is to buy new model. You can re-sell the screen motherboard, PSU as those are sometimes valued replacement parts for screens that have working panel but broken circuits.
Another tip for you is to find a exact same screen with broken circuits and replace those. I have found myself broken screens just for cents.
Maybe my related problem with the TomTom One will help. The software was freezing as soon as the touch screen was pressed to enter a destination. The previous owner sold it to me on Ebay for half of what it was worth because he thought it was broken. I fixed it by plugging it into my PC using the USB cable and registered it with the TomTom website, then downloaded a free software update (Operating system - not a map update) and installed it to the device. After a reset the TomTom worked 100%!! Bargain!!
I know the Navman is not a TomTom but you sound like you are having a similar "Software" issue that an update / reinstall could possibly solve.
Hi there, I now have two Cybershot DSC-T10 with broken LCD's. The best remedy that I have found is buy a parts camera with a good LCD on EBAY. You can get the whole camera for way cheaper than you can buy a new LCD.
The screen of the a1000 model is composed of 2 parts, the lcd display and the touchscreen pannel wich are both secured in the same housing, protected by a metal frame. Even if you only broke the lcd screen (and the touchscreen is still ok) in most cases, a service center will replace the entire screen assembly. It will cost somewhere around $100-200 depending on wich service center you choose. If you try this operation in a service center, the costs will be greater because you will buy a new screen and pay the labour part. It would be greater if you can buy a second hand broken a1000 with a good display and change it yourself. A1000 and the P9xx series are very easy to dissasemble and work with. You may receive further informations and pictures if you reply with this request.
The short answer would be to try to avoid a service intervention to the phone. It will be very expensive. the a1000 model was made in 2003 so the spare parts that can be found today are expensive and hard to find. Try finding a second hand unit, you may strike a good deal with it.
There is no need to replace the whloe lcdscreen, you just need to replace the touch screen & panel which is a thin glasstop on the top of the lcdscreen. The whole lcdscreen is expensive, while a touch panel is much cheaper than that.
