Garmin 2730 INOP Touchscreen...

I looked in the GPS forum and couldn't find a similar problem, maybe someone can help. The touch screen on the GPS is not working, I reset the defaults with my remote which works fine. I tried to recalibrate the screen, I was able to go through touching each dot but when complete I get a message "Calibration Failed" The only recognitioin I get is when I turn it on and "AGREE" to the software lisc. and when I do the calibration test.

I tried calling Garmin but got burned out on the wait time....Can anybody help!!!!! I'm lost with out it.

THere is a reset procesure for the 26xx/27xx series but I don't remember what it is. You push some series of buttons and it does a full reset of the device. I had to ahve someone at Garmin talk me through it on my 2610, but I'm guessing it's documented somewhere, possibly their support site.
