Tip Needed for Garmin 276c Screen Protector Repair

Here is the deal: My loyal 276c screen protector came loose a few years back. It works fine, but I never felt the need to send it back for a repair. Having is loose did pose issues with the water resistance of the unit.

After finding this excellent thread on repairing the internal battery I decided to take on the task of fixing two problems at once.

As you can see, I have the unit torn apart. A big thanks goes out to tsizmo for the photo tutorial on how to tear this thing apart!




Flip the front fact over to reveal the slot where the screen protector resides. We will be looking closer at the area with the circle.



Here is the inside corner.



And here is the corner of the screen protector.




The screen fits very tight into the slot. Not much room to spare between the two parts.

So, how do I get this rascal sealed up for some fowl weather. I figure I only have one shot at getting this right. Any advice on products that will do the job. The glue used was hard and brittle, not silicone based.

Is there a chicken joke in here somewhere

But on the subject of screen sealing - others have reported using silicone to seal up a leaky case, or replace the glass piece.

That is when the weather is a little worse than "raining cats and dogs"

Thanks for the info, I will see if I can find some silicone that will do the trick. The actual protector does not need to be replaced. I think the vibes from the GS finally did it in.

Sorry - I wasn't really clear. Others have sealed up a leaky screen from the outside using silicone. Also, when reinstalling the glass, I believe silicone has been used as well.

Great thread, lost my last 276c because I didn't repair a blown seal in time.

Found this stuff "Dap Aquarium Seal", looks like it should work, but I guess I won't know until the next storm.
