The SAFE message signals that one of the motors on the VHS mechanism has failed and now acts as a short and that triggers the safety system which blocks everything, hence the message and the behaviour . The only way to fix that is to open the unit and test the voltages on the motors and identify the failed motor - the one that is below 11 volts is the failed one - and it will have to be replaced if you can find it as a replacement part (difficult but possible) .
If you don't know how to do it or you can't find just the motor it would bee necessary to take it to a repair shop and they will replace the entire mechanism. I don't recommend that since the repair and the replacement mechanism would cost more than a brand new unit - it will be cheaper to discard this one and get a new one.

Hibernate issue


Boot the computer into Safe Mode and try changing the Power Options.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

Device: Garmin Nuvi 660 NA. After power on, nuvi boots thru to the "Where to" page. On the prior page, the touchscreen will not click "Enter" but after a time delay, nuvi proceeds to...


*Master reset your Garmin Device:


1.Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power;

2.Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil

3.Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON

4.Release the power button when the device powers ON

5.You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?

6.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays - Touch Yes

7.The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi .


*If the touchscreen is incorrectly detecting where your finger touches the screen, the screen may need to be calibrated.


1.Power the unit On.From the Where to? and View map screen, touch Settings . Touch Display>Touch Re-calibrate


2.A new screen will display that says Press Dot,Touch the Center of the Dot.

>Keep touching the center of the dot as it moves around the screen.


3.When Calibration Complete appears on the screen, please touch OK.

The screen will now be Re-calibrated.



*If the screen is not responding to touch, the device may not have enough power to function properly. Recharge the battery completely and try again. If the battery does not charge, it may need to be replaced.

If the screen is still not responding to touch commands or displaying properly, the display may need to be replaced. If sound comes from the device, it is likely the motherboard is working, and only the display needs to be replaced.

Refer to:Garmin Nuvi 660 Screen Replacement Guide

Before replacing the display, check that the ribbon cables connecting the display to the motherboard are connected securely.
