Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Unit decides to display a thin vertical line randomly

You have to pull the batteries out to get it reset.

Apparenly this is a known problem with the GPS 72, but I've not seen anyone else with the problem on the Legend.

    My unit is displaying thin vertical lines also (e Trex Legend) somewhat randomly. I am now losing the ability to read the screen at times when the lines get bad.

Try updating your unit software via Garmin.com. The US launched a new satellite earlier this year, causing problems with WAAS. You can disable WAAS as a temporary fix but updating your unit's software should provide a permanent fix. Let us know if this solves your problem.

Well if the panel is bad it would not clear up in any situation, so its not the panel. most likely the t-con board or just poor connections inside. Julio Millenium TV in Las Vegas.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

Thank You.
