I own a Garmin so I am very familiar with them. The touch screen itself and the software in your unit work in conjunction with each other. I would first go to Garmins website, hook up your unit to your computer and down load any updates they may have for your unit then try your unit again. If it still doesn't work then your probably going to need to contact Garmin to see if they can repair it. If the updates don't work for you then I would think its the touch screen itself that may need replacement.

I hope this helps you out.

The touchscreen has stopped responding. Everything else is OK.


Ok, i see your problem. Take a business card and wipe the corners of your screen gently. This should work as unresponsive screes occur when dust is trapped on the screen.Remember, practice this every 3 months.Good Luck :)

My MC70 work symbol wont respond to my touch screen pen


Does it respond to keyboard entry? If not, check to see if the "lock" icon on the screen is in the locked position. It's real easy to accidentially lock the device. If it is, just click on the lock and confirm that you want to unlock.

The next few can be a problem if the screen is not responding, so you'll need to figure out the keyboard equivalent:

You may also want to check the system settings. I believe there is a setting that will enable you to "turn off" the touch screen function.

Finally, try a touchscreen alignment in the system settings.

Hi,

I'm a french customer with a Marantz RC5400 wich has a screen LCD broken but the touchscreen is OK

I don't have the fix for your problem but I'm searching for a screen replacement at low cost...

If you always have your Marantz with the touchscreen problem, I'm interested for a deal

Thanks
