Solid white screen on display. can see images in background, if looked at real close and at a certain angle, and the unit is functioning properly. Touchscreen is working fine also. Reset unit and still the same white screen.

Is LCD screen shot?

If the screen lights up (backlight) and seems to respond to touch commands (touchscreen), then yes, the LCD has failed. The backlight and touchscreen are separate parts and not physically part of the LCD display. Replacing the LCD will resolve your problem.

thank you for the response.

i can't justify purchasing a new lcd to replace the current one. However, I am considering a used nuvi 200 for parts off ebay. Seems I can get a hold of one for a very minimal expense.

Is swaping the LCD screens a task that is managable?
