Question about Magellan eXplorist 200 GPS Receiver
Can I replace the screen myself if I can find one? How much of a job is it? Any recommendations
It is not a major job. I've replaced a few now, though I haven't found a good source for screens other than dead receivers on ebay. Work in a clean place. Take the screws off of the back, including the ones under the battery cover. Locate the ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board. Use the tip of the screwdriver to gently slide the plastic locking bar over, and then the ribbon will easily slide out. If the ribbon doesn't readily come out, you probably didn't get the bar correct. You may have to pull gently to pop the old screen off. Put the replacement ribbon in and slide the locking bar back over, then put it all back together. Be careful and make sure that the gasket is properly seated before you tighten the screws.
