Question about Garmin StreetPilot 2610 GPS Receiver

8 Answers

Touchscreen problem The touch screen on my GPS unit is not working right. The left side of the screen is fine, but the closer to the right side you touch it starts picking up the wrong button. IE: if your looking at the keyboard, when you press the letter F, D or S show up (the buttons next to what i'm pressing). It's as if the keys are off track.

    thanks for the solution!! I have not been ablet to use my Garmin SP2610 for a VERY long time. We are getting ready to travel and really wanted to use it again. Thanks to the tips on how to calibrate the touchscreen and how to take it apart to clean. If I had not seen the notes about calibrating it numerous times I would not have done my the 7 times it took to finally get to the calibration completed screen. THANK YOU! this site is awesome!!

I corrected my problem. It was a pain, but I pulled the thing apart and cleaned the screen around the edge of the frame. It had alot of dust and particles there. Put it back together and with one calibration it works fine.

I have performed the calibration (3) times. When I go back into the car during high heat, the problem reoccurs. My remote will not work. I point it at the eye and nothing happens. Anyone have a solution for my remote?

Yes, Yes, Yes it worked. I love my Garmin. I had received permission from my wife to use her Tom Tom. Then, I found this web site and fixed my screen. I am a traveling salesman and need to use it daily in my work. Thanks for the help!

FIXED!!!
Wow.. I couldn't believe it.. sigh.. i took this post (see below) from a solution to a 2620 Garmin. and YES.. it worked..

Well.. after running all the diagnostics nothing much happened.. I had done that before.. the part that really helped was the idea (as stupid as it sounds) to keep on running the screen recalibration test, after I did it continously on the 5th time the problem was fixed and my touch screen is back to normal.

I hope this helps..

(8) Simultaneously hold down the PAGE, MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. A SCREEN CALIBRATION adjustment screen will apear. Quickly touch the pointsTouchscreen problem - 1.gif indicated as the calibration program runs. At the end of this procedure, the screen will display a window indicating that the calibration either "PASSED" or "FAILED." If it "PASSED," continue to steps (8)-(9). If it "FAILED," turn off the 2620 and repeat this step. If, after three calibrations attempts, each one is "FAILED," then also turn off the 2620 and proceed to steps (8)-(9).

If you get the "calibration failed" message, you can always use the remote. I'm convinced the 2610 is heat sensitive, as the problem only occurs in hot weather.
I have had this problem and others with my 2610.

Left side of touchscreen does not work as expected


You think it could be possible the beep will be heard where ever you touch the screen, because the sensor for that is different from the matrix that is scanning where you touch?
In my opinion, the touch screen is defect, and it takes a certified repair shop to solve the problem. Perhaps even the complete screen has to be replaced. before you agree with any repair, ask what it will cost and check what a new camera will cost.

Then
Try to recalibrate your screen:

Reseating Touch Screen Ribbon Cables


The cable for the touchscreen is one with 4 conductors that connect directly to the overlay on the face of the LCD. The flat ribbon connector on the main board is quite delicate. The three connectors for the bottom screen are on the right side of the component side of the DS phat board. The touchscreen is labeled P6. On the DS Lite, the connector is closer to the R button.

Good Luck
