For the Etrex Legend you can click the page (top right hand) button till you get the main menu, select setup then display. Point the click stick down until the bar on the left is highlighted. You can then move the bar up and down until you get the contrast you want. You could first try clicking the square near the top right and selecting restore defaults, but if the default contrast is not to your liking then you can change it using the bar.
It is probably similar on related models such as the Venture or Vista, if in doubt check your manual.

When on button is pressed the instrument panel flickers and goes off


Your Garmin device is probably over 12 years old. go get a new one. you have already gotten more than your moneys's worth out of this device. I recommend replacing it with an eTrex 20 or if you want a magnetic compass and better sensors an eTrex 30.

Otherwise, replace the batteries, open it up and replace any coin cell batteries in there as well.

Garmin etrex screen too dim to read


I have an older Garmin 12XL and suddenly the screen turned very dark. I tried replacing the batteries and let the GPS rest for a week so the internal lithium battery could re-charge. But that did not work. I just got an email from a friend who had the same problem... it turned out that his unit had changed the screen contrast setting all by its' self.
This may not be the cause of your problem but it's worth trying... go into your "Settings" menu and reset the contrast and see if that cures the problem. Good luck.

Maybe you've adjusted the contrast too far?

Lost owner's manual. Etrex software v. 2.14. Can't figure out how to adjust contrast once I'm on the contrast screen.


Needed to push the Enter button twice when in the contrast screen. All good now.

A dark screen might be the result of a poorly adjusted display contrast. This can be altered by accessing the Setup menu and selecting Display.

I had the same problem with an etrex Vista. I spoke with Garmin, they said that a recently launched WAAS satellite is interferring with some models (he mentioned it is the models with a black and white screen). Garmin tech support said that they're working on a software patch but for the meantime switch WAAS off.

Call Garmin tech support with any questions or to find out about the software patch, 1-800-800-1020
