I have a non-working Nuvi 650 with same problem. Garmin tech support says they do not support the Nuvi 650 and I will have to buy another one. My Garmin was only 2 years old when it failed.
I doubt I will be buying another Garmin.

Touchscreen not working.


Do you hear a beep when you touch the screen? If you do it is more than likely a software issue, or the cameras are misaligned..
First thing to try is Scroll Lock Calibration.. Press Scroll Lock on your keyboard 5 times quickly, your cursor should move to the top left of your screen, press and hold your finger on it until you hear a beep, remove your finger and itshould automatically move to the top right, repeat for each corner, when it is done the cursor will move to the middle of the screen, and the touch screen should be working
If the computer does not beep when you tocuh the cursor and the cursor does not move when you remove your finger it means your touch is not being recognized... it could be a software or hardware issue, here is one way to find out..
First do a power drain.. shut down the computer and unplug everything from it (including the power cord) and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.. Now boot the computer into BIOS by tapping F10 on startup.. inside the BIOS touch the screen.. do you hear a beep? if so it is a software issue, if not more than likely it is a hardware issue
A few other things you can try... open the Touch Screen Configuration Tool inside the Control Panel, make suire the touch screen and sound are enabled, select the Troubleshooting tab, click Restore Defaults, try the Calibration function... beyond that you could try System Restore/System Recovery..
Good luck

How do i find out if my windows 8 is touch screen


One possible Win8 touch screen clue is the price. If the computer cost over $1000 on an all-in-one, you might have a touchscreen. Another test is to touch the screen and see if you get a response from the cursor. (Clean the screen afterwards to avoid fingerprints blurring your experience.)

I hope this helps.

(my only touchscreen device is an Android tablet. The laptop touch pad and a Logitech T650 touch pad give those functions for a lot less. Lenovo and Dell also offer Win8 touch pads.)

My Garmin nuvi 1390T will unlock the screen without entering all or part an incorrect password. It usually takes a while to pick up the satelite signal. The touchscreen needs to be more responsive to the...


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset or a hard reset to the unit.
The soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power back on.
A hard reset is done by pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while the power is off and then pressing the power button on. A pop up will appear asking to confirm the reset.
The hard reset will erase the user data, so it is advisable to save the data if possible.
Installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest update will resolve most issues.
download the latest version of WebUpdater software

The touch screen may need recalibration.
This can be done by pressing and holding the top left corner of the screen will powering on the unit.
Keep pressing the top left corner of the screen until the calibration screen appears.
Use a stylus or the round back part of a pen to press the dots to calibrate.
Once the calibration is done the unit will continue to boot up showing the Garmin screen.

Previosly I have done a reset to get the nuvi 666 touch screen responding again, but I don't recall the procedure can you assist>


You should not be having to constantly reset the Nuvi to make the touchscreen operational. The touchscreen is defective and needs to be replaced. I've replaced over a thousand 660 touchscreens and through my experience, a non-responsive touchscreen is caused by a defective touchscreen.

Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen "touch" works intermittently


Recalibration has nothing to do with repairing this problem. If the touchscreen is non-responsive, how are you going to recalibrate it when it doesn't recognize the key presses?

The problem is caused by a defective touchscreen. SHARP substitued a different touchscreen into the 6xx series that fails even when the glass isn't damaged. The problem is caused by a defect in the manufacturing process where the touchscreen connections becomes detached from the tail that plugs into the board.

The touchscreen connections between the screen and the tail are made from conductive ink that can fracture, most likely caused when pressing on the screen over time.

These defective screens can be identified by a white tail cap at the end of the tail, whereas the original touchscreens have a maroon tail cap. The original touchscreens will only fail if the glass has been broken.

I only use the original touchscreens for all of my repairs.

Problem with the touch screen an stylus


Press the Up + Down buttons at the same time. This will turn off the "Digitizer" function on the tablet and allow the user to use their finger, the stylus, or blunt end of a pen.

Lowrance 500c touchscreen


My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.
