My Garmin StreetPilot 330 is less than a year old. My gps was workin fine until one day when I turned it on, the top right corner of the screen had an area (about 1/8 of the screen) that is black and across the whole top of the screen, there are white lines which make it impossible to see the words or map in that area. Has anyone heard of this before?

Yes its most likely the battery, if you plug it into the charger, I assume it powers up normally? Il see if I can get you instructions on battery replacement. I remember there was one for your model or a similiar one. Hold on.
I had one like that last year, I found if I lied to it when it asked what state I was in, then it would find the satellites and work fine ... until the next time you turned it on. That one was fixed by installing new v7.2 firmware using Garmin WebUpdater through the USB port.
I've got one right now that won't find the satellites and the firmware trick didn't work. That's all I've got so far. Tom.
I had this problem once. Try plugging it into the USB for power. Remove the face plate - there's an indention underneath on the top side to get your finger nail underneath to pull it out. One you get the face plate off,there's a small button on the right side of the screen. You can try pressing that to see if it turns on.
