    Hello fsmten,



    I received instructions from a good expert at this site named sharcnet. This individual sent me detailed instructions and I would ask that you attempt to contact him/her via this site first. Search the site and you'll find him.



    I should say that although I am quite capable of tearing most anything apart and fixing it, I found a repair service that would fix it for a price that I thought was reasonable. I can not recommend this repair location any higher. They are most excellent in every way. I had the on/off switch circuit board repair done, the battery replaced, the case replaced, and the screen replaced. What does that leave? Not much but the main board. Wow. It looks and runs like a new unit. You can attempt the repair yourself, but based on my experience, this place is worth the price. Guy named Mel at the service is the best. I now live in the UK and the service is in the UK, so some mail costs may be involved if your somewhere else. Here's the link. Tell Mel that Al sent you (I have no association with this place other than a true appreciation for getting what I payed for and getting my Nuvi back to life).



    sales@mgaimports.co.uk



    If you can't get a response from sharcnet at this FixYa site and choose not to have MGA Imports fix it - and still wish to do the fix yourself, get back to me. I do have disassembly instructions.

Garmin nuvi 350 - broken screen


If the LCD is actually leaking (big stain on the screen) then it cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Replacing an LCD is a relatively simple job on any GPS, it is normally just a case of opening the casing, disconnecting the ribbon cable on the old screen and putting the new one in its place. As long as you are careful and put everything back where you found it then you should have no problems.

You can check all the parts suppliers in your area or online for a new screen, but for the lowest cost solution I would suggest searching ebay for a faulty nuvi 350 with an intact screen. If you can find one you will probably get it for less than the cost of a new part, plus whatever bits you have left you can always resell. There are always people wanting to buy spares for satnavs.

Nuvi 350 on off problems


This is a common problem with the Nuvi series. The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.

The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down the button, the solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually break off the main PC board. This is a design flaw and could have been easily prevented by wedging a small piece of plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support.

Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.

I have repaired many of these before and I'll be posting a step-by-step procedure on how to fix this and prevent it from happening again.

I must point out however, that in order to make this repair, you will need to have skills in dissassembly and soldering.

Also, please only attempt this procedure if your unit is out of warranty.

If you would like for me to repair your GPS, please email me at KS3R at sharc dot net.

Garmin nuvi 350 9 months old


Have you ever tried updating the firmware with garmins webupdater?
Have you had this issue with a fully charged battery.
Do you hear anything rattle in the device when you shake it....I had a spIII color with similar issues, found out that one of the circuit board mounting screws was travelling around in the case.
If this is the case, and you are tech savvy you could open the GPS and probably find the culprit. If not ship it back to Garmin, for it is still under warranty.

Power button don't work


Likely a mechanical failure of the power switch. I called Garmin, described the problem, got an RMA number, mailed in my 350, and received a refurbished unit in less than 1 week.
