Hi there, my zoom in button seems not to work. The unit will zoom out and other buttons will work, except for this.

Is there a workaround for this, via the menu or a reset to factory defaults.

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Hi - Sounds like the rubber pad needs cleaning or replacing....though you probably cant get them anymore. I use to purchase them from Next Destination but they are now gone..and that was a few years ago. So your only option maybe to take the unit apart (easy enough - few screes) and carfully remove rubber pad. Clean contact surfaces (on pad and in unit) with appropriate contact cleaner, put back together and see what happens.

Unit reset wont help..its a hardware issue.
