No matter what video input I have on, the screen is always dark for the most part except for a strip of screen which is lighter 3/4 of the way up the screen. Anyone know what would be causing this? Thanks.

the tube lamp is degraded an needs replaced . the high voltage to the lamp might be weak corroded connection too.
consider changing the lamp out for led strip
i ordered 1 ccfl lamp many times from china for 2.50 an they are always damaged . too long for the mail.
i can order the same ccfl lamp from us for 40.
im going to insert led strips in place of the lamp.
its not that hard if your a tinker
Looking down at the top of the camera, check the left knob. This is the exposure compensation dial. Adjust it to "0". If set one way or the other, it will make pictures darker or lighter. This comes in handy when the image has a lot of dark or bright areas - moving this dial will allow you to make the bright areas darker or the dark areas lighter when you camera's light meter is setting the exposure in a way you do not want.
If still having trouble, make sure the right knob (Mode) is not set to M or Manual. Switch it to Program or Auto and try taking a picture again. You might even want to set the outer knob (ISO) to AUTO as well to reduce the chances of an incorrect setting. If it now works as expected, but you want to shoot in M, you will need to learn how to use the meter to select the correct combination of aperture (f stop), shutter speed and ISO to obtain the desired results.
Oh, experiment with the exposure compensation knob when you have a chance, learn how it can help correct overly dark / bright scenes. Good luck!
The problem is that your software version needs updating. A recently added satellite creates a glitch in the older software. Go to the Garmin website, load WebUpdater if you haven't already done so, and the updated version (3.8) will automatically install to your Garmin unit. I had the same symptoms, they have now disappeared and my Etrex Vista is back to normal.
