If you have a unit that is out of warantee and are willing to open it up, you could open it, very simple no screws.

Once you have the plastic off, there will be two philips screws holding the screen board in place, remove the two screws and gently raise the screen board peering under you will see a flex film, this should attach the lcd assembally to the screen board.

Check to see if the flex film is firmly in place, if not there is a little plastic goodie that slides over the film where it attaches to the screenboard. Make sure that it is in place and that the flex film is securly in place.

If that fails check to make sure that there are no cracks on the lcd itself.

All else fails you may have a problem with the GPS board itself.

Garmin Etrex Venture HC will not power up/stay on.


Hi,

You are not alone it appears. Follow the link below.

Try here.http://www.fixya.com/support/t2084694-gps_stay I had the same problem as you and I followed the advise to do a "bootlock" to download new software via Garmins WebUpdater. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=931
But please note if the unit switches off during update it may cause problems.

Or you could just return to Garmin for a replacement.

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.

Garmin Vista Shutting down and freezing up


People! The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.

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.
