Customer Question

My Garmin GPSmap 76S turns on (the screen lights) but nothing is showing on the screen. Is there anything I can do to restore the screen? I haven't used it in a few years.

Hello Mike,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Please try resetting the unit which I do have a video to help you as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Btl03-amInQ

If that does not work or nothing comes on the screen because it does not show anything, this means the unit would need to be sent in for repair or replacement. Since the screen lights up it is most likely not a backlighting issue but and actual display/board failure.

Thank you!

- Joe
