I just had him fix my on-off button problem - common problem with the 350 design. Mel provides great service and customer communications at a very reasonable price.

My nuvi live again.

Tell him Al sent you.

Sorry to say the LCD display is cracked. You can find a replacement LCD display with tools on eBay but they are kind of pricey.

You might try finding one for sale that has an antenna problem or is completely that had a known working display at the time it died.

If you send it back to Garmin, it will cost you almost the same as a new one if your unit is out of warranty.

Good luck!

sounds to me like the LCD is broken or damaged, but due to the low cost of a new unit these days its possibly scrap. and cheaper to buy new again.

Only see half the screen - other half blank


Anytime you have a distortion in the image on the screen, this can NOT be reolved with a reset. You have a bad LCD module. Take a look at the pictures on this page and see if one is like the problem you are having.

I dropped my garmin 750 nuvi and now there are grey stripes on the screen. half of the screen is dark grey and the otherhalf is grey and white moving stripes. it is only a month old but doubt if it is...


Although the problem is not fixable without replacing the entire LCD touch screen, you may still be able to get a replacement through the warranty program. It never hurts to ask and you may be surprised. Many companies want their customers happy and they may replace your unit for you. You might have to "forget" to mention that the damage was your fault. But trying to do the repairs yourself will definitely void the warranty.

Only half of sreen lights up and is frozen. Do all 350 have a memory card? When my husband brought it in from his last trip, there appears to be no memory card in it. Could this be my problem with only...


Stock Nuvi's from the factory do not include a memory card (SD card). You do not need a memory card to operate the Nuvi. The memory card is only needed if you want to add more storage space for music or pictures or if you want to add additional maps. It has nothing to do with the LCD display. Having worked on these units for quite sometime, anytime you have 1/2 of the screen missing, it tells me that your LCD display is defective.

Issue on garmin 350 screen


Sounds like it has some internal damage. I think you need a tech savvy person to open it up and check if the display didn't move in its mount, shifting the connections. My best guess is a shipment to garmin. They do have a standard repair price. Maybe you can get your hands on a defective one with a good display and have the tech savvy guy swap the display.
