The wiring going around the digitizer screen is broken. Find a dead unit on Ebay (hopefully one with a good screen) and replace the screen. But with the cost of the Nuvi 200 under $200 and refurbished C330 for under $150, it might be time to replace the unit.

Touch screen not responsive Garmin 680

The cable to the touch sensitive part of the screen may have come loose (easily happens if knocked).

Try taking the unit apart (with care and the right type of screwdriver) and reseating the connector cable.

Once you've done this you may need to recalibrate the screen. Holding the power switch down will get you to the reboot / recalibrate screen.

But of course this will probably invalidate your warranty so beware.

The bottom right hand corner of my garmin nuvi does not respond. all the images appear but when i touch the screen, it does not respond.

Sounds like the cable connector to the touch sensitive piece of the screen may be loose. (easily happens if the unit is knocked).

Try taking the unit apart (with care and the right type of screwdriver) and reseating the connector just behind the screen.

Holding the on/off key down for a while will force it to the re-boot/recalibrate screen.

This will probably invalidate your warranty so beware.

Touch screen unresponsive

This is not caused by the cable being loose on the main board. Its caused by a intermittant touchscreen where the resistive grid is not making good contact with the tail (cable) that plugs into the main board.

Its a defect in the manufacturing process and can only be resolved by replacing the touchscreen. Please see this link for more info:

Garmin nuvi 350, touch screen isn't working. Was

From the Garmin troubleshooting page:

Non-Responsive Screen
You cannot control the device using the touch screen.
Dirty Screen
It may seem mundane, but dust dirt and other particulates can greatly reduce the function of the touch screen, follow these simple steps to clean your screen:
If your device has a screen protector, remove it.
Spray a bit of water or formulated spray onto a microfiber cloth.
Wipe thoroughly.
Using a dry microfiber cloth, immediately dry the surface.
Replace the screen protector with a new one if desired.
Resetting the Device Without the Screen
Follow the steps in the Factory reset subsection to reset your device without use of the touch screen."

Or, if the screen is broken, you can order a replacement screen. There are guides online for replacing them.

*In the meantime, if you have a smartphone, there are many apps that you can use as a GPS / mapping tool.

Youve damaged the top screen cable - nothing to do with wifi block

Thanks for using FIXYA!

Careful when opening the case because you'll have to unplug the cable from the main board prior to opening the case completely.

The RF cable could be loose inside. Carefully open the unit as to not potentially cause any further damage. The RF cable will be gray or black, it will be the only cable connected from the main (big) board to the RF (attached to the rear housing.. I believe) board. The connectors on either side of the cable have came loose. A "pad" being lifted results in a repair process that's beyond me, this meaning you can see white as opposed to silver. It may help continuity to re-flow the solder, if everything looks fine (heating up the existing solder and adding fresh solder).

Unplug the cable on both ends and plug back in to make sure the connectors on the circuit board aren't coming loose. If soldering is out of your league then I suggest finding someone that can. Let me know what happens, and careful when opening the case because you'll have to unplug the cable from the main board prior to opening the case completely.

There are 4 torx screws in the back, they need to be taken off and then the case unsnaps, and wala you have it apart.

Screen Problems with my Laptop

hi dear

1. That can be connection related problem. I check connection between the video cable and the LCD screen, try reconnecting the video cable. It’s necessary to take apart the display panel, unplug the video cable from the connector on the back side of the LCD screen and then plug it back in. In some cases reseating this connection helps. 2. If reconnecting the video cable doesn’t help, here’s what I do in this case. While the display panel is still disassembled, I turn on the laptop and wait until image appears on the screen. Then I move the video cable a little bit without touching the LCD screen. If moving/touching the video cable affects image on the screen, it’s possible that there is a problem with the cable. Apparently there’s a short somewhere inside the cable. In this case, replacing the video cable may fix the problem.
3. If reconnection the cable doesn’t help and moving/touching the cable doesn’t change image at all and the only way to get better picture is moving/touching the LCD screen itself, apparently there is a problem with the LCD and it has to be replaced.

Lowrance 500c touchscreen

My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.
