590 Rubber Power Button Failed

Post by MSTOCK27370 »

The rubber power button on my 590LM has shifted out of position and won't stay in place. It appears that there may have been an O-Ring around the top of the button that has worked loose.

I know that I can ship the GPS to Palm Dr and he will fix it. Has anyone else had this happen and is there a fix that can be done by the owner? Are these buttons available for sale? And, if they are, does a new one just get pressed into the cavity?

I sent a repair inquiry to Chris Short at Short Tronics (aka Palm Dr). He replied promptly this morning.

He explained that the power button is actually part of the rubberized "skin" on the back of the 590. It ages and dries, then cracks and breaks off. I could possibly have cobbled something together, but decided to get it repaired professionally. I have never been disappointed with Palm Dr repairs to any of my Garmins.
