Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
Wont shut off unless i push the reset button the back.wont turn on unless i plug in the car charger or the wall charger.do you think the on off switch is bad.
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 the repairs I make prevent this from happening again.
If you would like for me to reasonably repair your GPS, please email me at KS3R at sharc dot net.
