Hello
Normally it is ver difficult; not difficut but almost impossible to repair a LCD screen. It is best to buy a new one for your Gramin GPS. There is a number for the LCD screen, and should be noted before buy a new one. In some occations, repairwork will cost more than buying a new one. There may be no possibility to repair your present LCD screen. That is why, Gramin service center has rejected the work. OK.

    The LCD displays are available at different sizes. Gramin will not sell it ouside. They will replace it at their Authorised service center only, to grab more money from the cusomer. Just give it to screen replacement to some expereinced service personal you trust and know well. They will do it for you. Or contact any authorised service center of LG or Samsung. Never approach to Sony. They are colstlier people. OK.

Looks like screen of 176C has been damaged---can still see it works


If the screen is already damage the only thing that can do here is to have the screen replace from the service center, so you can still use this unit...

Hope that helps...............

Hi the screen on my 176c is so dark it can barely be read. I have to turn the light on to see whats going on.Is there any way to restore it to its former glory cheers ......john wainwright. ...


John, the light sensitive IC has failed. This is a small piece of electronic wizardry that adjusts the brightnessdepending on the ambient light. At night is is supposed to add brightnes and in sunlight reduce it

The sign of failure may have been early but you didint notice it. They often turn on ok then suddenly in daylight the screen will darken, turning the unit off and on resets it for a while. however it gets worse as time goes on.. iT is not a DIY and has to be sent back to the manufacturer for correction.

Contact Garmin for a quote before submitting it for repair, you might need a chair to sit on when they give you an answer. Contact the service support in 7 hills NSW 1 800 235 822

Please rate my help++++ Thanks forf using FIXYA

Need repair 176C GPS ok using plug power but battery damaged internal batt connection and will not turn on using int batt device is in NY buddy has few bucks & not wanting to buy new


I have done repairs to similar thing, what I have done, is get a "Pack" of batteries, with leads on them, similar to a cordless phone battery, but the same voltage as the ones the GPS uses, now, solder the wires onto the correct terminals. or the circuit board, make sure you rid every trace of corrosion too.Your good to go.

The GPSmap 176c does not turn on. I have put in new batteries and cleaned the metal parts of the battery receptors


Do you use rechargeable batteries? The 176C seems to be extremely picky about the voltage. I had the same problem. Afer changing to non-rechargeable batteries, everything works fine again. Not great for the environment, but for my bearings.

Will not power on


Did you use rechargeable batteries? The Garmin seems to be extremely picky about enough voltage. I had good rechargeables which I use in my foto flashlights, but they did not suffice for the Gamin. Simple non-rechargeable batteries ones solved my problem. Not good for the environment, but for my bearings...
