Garmin 60csx:A spot burned in the LCD screen

Postby GPSUSER234 » Fri 2009-06-26, 11:37:57

A spot burned in the LCD screen and batteries keep emptying themselves, when the unit is turned off. http://www.nwogeo.org/Forums/viewtopic/ ... ight=.html
Others have reported that inserting the batteries backwards can cause this problem also!
Can this be fixed by replacing the LCD screen, and if, where can I get one?

Did you try calling Garmin? I've heard of plenty of success stories, even when out of warranty. It never hurts to ask.

I agree. The post you pointed to was mine, and Garmin took care of me out of warranty without me even asking for special treatment. It is worth a try!
