Tomtom white screen


Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

I turn on my nuvi 1300 and get a white screen


Hi famoflu5,

It sounds like you have the "white screen of death" (I made that up) non-responsive screen...meaning you cannot enter data or make the unit respond to finger or sylus presses. There is a procedure for getting the screen back to normal, provided there are no other software or electronic issues.

Try these steps:
1. Turn off the Nuvi.
2. Hold the upper-left of the screen while turning power on.
3. Release the Power button when the Garmin screen appears.
4. Continue to hold the upper-left corner of the screen for 30 seconds, until a white screen with "Press dot" appears.
5. Press dot and that should get you back to normal.

Also, you may to need perform a hard reset for your unit to clear out any erroneous data.

These GPS units can be reset by holding the Power button for 10-15 seconds to completely shut the unit down. Then, do the same procedure for 10-15 seconds again, to power it back on.

It would be best to assure the unit has external power, and hopefully a full battery charge, for best results. Also you can download a complete manual from this link for more info:


http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/3130_OwnersManual.pdf

Starting on page 47 of the manual in the appendix, it tells you about calibrating the screen (problem discussed above), updating software, and clearing user data.

If these steps don't bring your unit back to life, you may need to contact a regional repair facility or the factory for service.

Let me know how this turns out, and if I can help you further.

Regards,
Bill

Tomtom 3rd edition


I think it has to do with hooking up your unit via the usb cable to the computer. I got one from Radio Shack and it worked fine for a day, drove with it and shut it on and off a couple of times. Then I hooked it up to my emachine computer, and all I got was a white screen. Took it back got another one, drove with it, turned it on and off a couple of times, worked fine. Then I hooked it up to my computer, and again the same white screen until I reset it. I noticed all these posts are in the last few days, so I would say it is a bad batch of units. I purchased one for my wife 3 weeks ago and no such problem.

Garmin C330 white screen


Have you tried a Master Reset? If not, it may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES, and may remove anything you have updated. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press the On button and the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the On button, but keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Press yes. This may help.

The screen images are in reverse


For clarification: You turn on your unit, the blue magellan logo appears clearly, but then the screen slowly starts turning white. Turning the unit off/on fixes the white but images are in reverse. CAUTION: It would help if you were grounded in some way prior to proceeding. Also, of course do this at your own risk. Make sure the cable going from the main board to the LCD is making a solid connection: 1. Take screws out of rear housing 2. Slightly seperate the rear/front housing 3. Disconnect the RF cable attached on the corner of the main board. 4. Pull off (or locate if they already fell off) 4 O rings from the screw mounts. 5. Fold over mainboard ontop of rear housing 6. Use fingernail or tweezers to lift up the plastic locking mechanism that attaches your LCD to the backside of your mainboard. 7. Pull out LCD cable, inspect for "gunk" on conacts (clean if necessary) 8. Shove cable back into slot on mainboard 9. Press down locking mechanism 10. fold mainboard back over 11. Put 4 O rings back on screw mounts 12. PLUG RF CABLE BACK IN! (signal will be zero if this doesn't happen) 13. Fit together front/back and screw back in.
