    Note to all Garmin Nuvi 350 Users with a Defective On/Off Switch:



    1. In order to repair this problem, you need to have surface mount desoldering/soldering skills as well as the appropriate soldering tools and case dissassembly tools. Without these things, you take the risk of further damaging your Nuvi, possibly making it impossible to repair.



    2. Resoldering the switch is not going to resolve the issue long-term. In some cases, the switch can not be resoldered and additional rework must be performed.



    3. In order to fix this problem once and for all, the switch needs to be mechanically secured better to the main PCB using pre-tinned buswire. In addition, a custom-fit piece of plastic needs to be glued behind the switch to give it additional support.



    FAILURE TO DO THE ABOVE WILL RESULT IN THE ON/OFF SWITCH BREAKING AGAIN.... GUARANTEED!



    For a reasonable price, I will repair youf Nuvi on/off switch and put in the modications so it doesn't happen again. Repair takes 1 day, units are sent back the next day. Please contact me at KS3R at sharc dot net if interested. I have references.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1200 series and it shut off by itself and will not turn back on. It was fully charged when it shut off. I tried holding the on/off button for 10 seconds to try to reset, but it still...


try and get it plugged into a computer using a USB data cable, if the unit comes on most likely all you need to do is go to www.garmin.com and run a software update off the webupdater. and also try holding the power button for 50-60 seconds

Garmin nuvi 350 - broken screen


If the LCD is actually leaking (big stain on the screen) then it cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Replacing an LCD is a relatively simple job on any GPS, it is normally just a case of opening the casing, disconnecting the ribbon cable on the old screen and putting the new one in its place. As long as you are careful and put everything back where you found it then you should have no problems.

You can check all the parts suppliers in your area or online for a new screen, but for the lowest cost solution I would suggest searching ebay for a faulty nuvi 350 with an intact screen. If you can find one you will probably get it for less than the cost of a new part, plus whatever bits you have left you can always resell. There are always people wanting to buy spares for satnavs.

Opening the Garmin Nuvi 350


Hi:
It can be easyto open. There is a couple of nuts behind the antenna, you have to remove them, then you need to remove the antenna, in order to do this you need to find a pin in the base of the antenna, and slide it to the center, and this free your antenna, then you can reach a couple a nuts located under the antenna, remove them and then you will be free to open your nuvi. I did this cause my power button was broken, I resolded and now is working pretty fine. the picture is my nuvi 350 opened.b67f991.jpg

Garmin 350 Nuvi


not sure if you are keeping the tab open but...the reason is because the tab at the top of the GPS is the antannae. You have to open it or it won't work. when you press the reset button, you are opening the antannae first which then acquires the satellites. Keep the top tab open.
