WTB broken Etrex Vista

For your info.

 

I have a broken etrex vista. Every thing seems to work except I cannot go left/right with the joystick.

I took it apart, and swapped the lcd/joystick board from a fully working etrex legend (same part). Fully re-assembled everything and it still exhibits the exact same problem. The legend with the vista lcd still works 100%. If yours is exhibiting the same problem, I would say that there is a pretty good chance that the problem is not with the lcd/joystick assembly. Hope that helps you.

Well that is interesting that your problem wasn't solved by swapping the joystick board. MIne just doesn't let me choose something like pressing staright down. I can figured it was a small switch that wasn't working. I will look further into my unit tonight. thanks for the heads up.
