GPS unit malfunction:   unit turns on normally, acquires satellites, shows Trip Computer page, then turns clear with a single, narrow vertical line, and can only be turned off by removing a battery  --  can this problem be fixed without sending unit to factory for rehab?  Unit description:   Garmin eTrex Legend GPS receiver, B&W.
     I have already bought a new, identical unit from Ebay for less than the cost of Garmin rehab, so I now have a useless paperweight which I could invade, if necessary.
