Question about Garmin eTrex Vista GPS Receiver

1 Answer

GPS will not display full screen.

The display will only show up on the lower 1/3 of the LCD.  I can not read the information to use it.  Most all of what is suppose to be in the full screen is compressed down, but I can't read the menus, or much of anything.

The fuel gauge on my 01 caravan 2.4l reads full when running, and only reads 1/4 when off, any ideas what it could be?


Many cars do this to discourage gas theft. If the car fuel gauge only shows 1/4 full, a potential thief may not bother to steal 2 or 3 gallons of gas. This is very normal.

If the gauge is stuck on full and you are sure the tank isn't full, you have a sensor sending wrong information to the dash gauge. Most cars now have a single fuel pump and sending unit that can be replaced by a mechanic.

Hp pavilion dv8130us laptop rolling screen at start up, cant see boot of computer put on projection plugged into computer see windows just fine on tv . is it video card or lcd gone out? just place new lcd...


By using the VGA output with a projector and having it show up clearly and as expected is a sign that the video card/GPU is working properly.
Furthermore, the symptom that you explain of a rolling screen I interpret as meaning that you can see the image that is meant to be displayed, but it keeps moving from the bottom of the screen to the top and rotating. IF this is correct it sounds like DA converter on the LCD is your culprit. It is the chip that is in charge of interpreting the signal coming from the GPU and sending it to the LCD elements at the prescribed refresh rate (generally 60 hertz). The rolling image is an indication of the refresh rate not being met by the LCD.
Things to check:
1) While plugged into the projector, open the Windows Control Panel then the Display Icon. Go to the Settings Tab.
2) If the Display settings show 2 output displays, ensure the built-in LCD is the one clicked on in the graphic then click the Advanced Settings button/link.
3) Once that window appears go to the Monitor Tab and set the option to the lowest numbered option. Generally this will be 60 or lower. Then press OK. The screen will flicker and HOPEFULLY you will get a clear/non-rotating LCD display. If not, I'd venture that the LCD itself has gone bad again. Perhaps there is a root cause such as a powering issue that is providing too many amps to the LCD but that would take some hefty investigation to resolve the power that is supposed to be provided and a multimeter to figure out the actual voltage/amperage.
Hope this helps!

The screen goes blank after 1 second display, flicks back again to the display for 1 second and back to blank, this goes on non stop. The little led next to the on/off button goes from green to yellow...


pandres, Your monitor will need troubleshooting to find out reason why the 2 "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" fail to remain lighted. They provide "white light" so you can see what is on the lcd panel. Connect a "known good" monitor to your pc to prove monitor is bad. If pc is ok, then your monitor will need repair. This type problem not new and is very common for all brands of ccfl back-lit lcd monitors. Watch some video clips at YOUTUBE that show disassembly and repair of ccfl lcd monitors.

Follow the instructions on the LCD display, which will advise on removing and reinserting the paper.
After you have compleated the calibration place the pritner ONLINE to exit the menu.
And finally turn the printer power off, wait ten seconds and turn the printer power on again.

If the problem still exits you may need to repalce the lower tractors or the main logic board.

1. Wide Mode reads "Full"
2. Auto Wide reads "On"
3. Display Area reads "Full Pixel"

Hope that helps.

Shooting mode shows nothing.


Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.

How to change the time on screen


generic for all phones... the standard way to change the time and show it on screen is simply going to the settings and look for time settings... in here, you can actually change the time, the date , and the year and you can also change the time format form 12 hour to 24 hour.
