Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Dark Screen My Garmin c330 is several years old and the screen intensity is getting bad. Even at 100% it is very dark. Is there a fix for this? My battery went dead last year and I have replaced it. All has worked fine since.

The screen uses a CCF like florescent tube and that may be going bad. I don't know if it's replaceable as the screen is one unit with the light built in.

My c330 serial 10h607894 started to power up and then went dark on screen when under its own battery power today. tried to plug in to power source and boot up. no luck. Tried to sync with computer. not...


The internal battery might be worn out. If the Garmin is used on a weekly basis over the past 2 / 3 years, i'd say the battery has done it's job and needs replacement.

Though if it's used sporadically and left in the drawer over the same period there should be more battery lifetime in there.

A battery replacement requires opening the Garmin backcover with a Hex / Torque screwdriver set. Garmin's policy is to have the battery replaced by a Garmin dealer. If warranty has expired and you're comfortable with opening electronic devices it could easily be a DIY job.

A battery can be bought over the internet including a Hex/Torque screwdriver set.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers
