How to fix the screen issues on a Garmin Nuvi 200W
Garmin sells many different types of GPS navigation systems. For a device like Garmin Nuvi 200W, all you have to do is wait for the GPS to collect the satellite signal and then enter the address of the place you want to drive to. The navigation system will give you step by step instructions on how to get there using satellite technology. If you find that the touch screen is not working properly, you can repair it by calibrating it. Unfortunately, if there is any structural damage to the screen, you need to send the Nuvi 200W to Garmin for the repaired screen, as Garmin does not sell replacement parts as consumer screens.
Instruction for fixing the screen issue on a Garmin Nuvi 200W
1 Turn off the Garmin Nuvi 200W.
2 Turn it on again and hold down the “Power” button until the screen turns white. This will take about 30 seconds.
3 Press the icon on the white screen. This will calibrate the screen and usually get it back to its proper working state.
4 Press the “Reset” button on the nüvi 200W if the calibration did not solve the problem. If this does not work, there may be structural damage. Since Garmin does not sell replacement parts for customers, you will have to work with them to get your screen repaired.
