    Ah no, I should say the screen is on and brightly lit up, but blank white.

    I have charged it all morning, but no difference.

    Adding to this, the unit is on, the screen is lit up, but bright white and blank. and no voice guidance either. It was working first thing, but I asked for an alternative route and it just blanked on me.

    It's not dead, it just goes blank but lit up. It was working fine and just seemed to get stuck but nothing wrong with the charge.

Hi,

This is a common problem.Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.The LCD display has it's own IC chips (Integrated circuits) that receive data from the main board and convert it to a visual readout. Having repaired many GPS's myself, any problems with the display are usually confined to the display itself. Now,if you dropped it, there's a possibility that the internal flex cable has partially come loose from the board. However, you can't tell that unless the gps is opened up. I have seen gps's with an all white screen, half white, half OK...all which were caused by a defective screen. Prices vary based upon whether you want a new screen or a used one. The price can be anywhere between $45 and up.
Please don't try to do this yourself. I have received many horror stories from people who have destroyed their gp's by attempting to take it apart.

Either contact the manufacturer or a local repair shop.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi well unfortunately this isn't uncommon, about the only thing one can do is IF there is a reset button, then this can be pressed, and this will return the GPS to "Factory" settings. This may help.
However it still may not work, unfortunately, as perhaps the software has somehow become corrupted and in this case the only way to do this is to, download, the software, from the manufacturers website then install the software and then connect with the software to the manufacturers website and download, this time, the Updates, or whatever software is appropriate, then you hook the GPS up via the USB port, with cable supplied, the GPS should update it's firmware and maps etc as required. Once finished the GPS will usually ask you to remove all cables etc, and restart, after the restart hopeful all should be well.
Now if NOT, then one has little option but to return it to the manufacturer for repair, overall, this will prove to be the least hassle and cost. If you have to exercise this option please contact them first, and ask them what to do.
Often for a very modest charge, they simply replace the unit with a new one. All working and with whatever maps one wants installed.

Try to open it with the charger inserted..and make sure it isn't the battery that is dead and do not hold the power..and if it still makes the same ..and makes no sign of any power being received , than it is the main-board gone bad...but if it show sound or anything like it when you try to power it up ..than the LCD is either disconnected from the ribbon ..or it is dead and need to be changed..(I'm not sure it is worth the trouble ..due to the part and handwork price ..)

Navman My50T - screen has frozen, can't get any other screen apart from initial start-up screen (except for screen showing connected to computer when connected by usb).


Had a similar problem with a MY60T.
Spoke to Navman support.
1. Connect your unit to the computer.
2. Use windows explorer to go to the Navman folder
3. Go to the database folder.
4. Delete "Database.db"
5. Switch off & re-start you unit. The databse file is re-created on startup

Navman MY75T was working fine for several weeks, but today it won't start up. Tried to reset several times, but no luck. It gets to the Safety Agreement screen, and when I press the "Accept"...


1. Connect Navman GPS to PC viamini-usb cable. 2. Go to 'Start' 3. Go to 'My Computer' 4. Open the 'Navman' folder 5. Open the 'Database' folder 6. Delete the following file only- 'dababase.db' 7. Close the folders 8. Disconnect the mini-USB cablethen restart the Navman GPS by sliding the switch to 'Restart' then back to'On' after 10 seconds. The unit shouldstart & the database.db file will be re-generated automatically.

I purchased a NAVMAN S-150 GPS In-Car Unit last week from ****-smith online shop. I have been testing this device for several days now. Why is it that the various touch screen buttons respond differently...


I have the same problem, the s150 touch screen is pathetic, Got the same story from Strathfield Car Radio..it was normal and had it in for repairs twice when the screen went crazy with vertical lines, same fault both times. I went back to using my s50 and will sell the s150, it is a highly complex, very pretty lemon. They wont refund you or give map upgrades for inconvenience caused by their faulty product. To sum the s150 up. A truly Miserable experience. Rate it out of ten? its a minus.
