The edge 305 unit does not answer to hard and soft reset command


Just to be sure ...

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles

Now if this does not work, you should check battery. Does the device charge when plugged on PC ?
If it does not, either battery is out of order or the contacts inside the device re broken. This may happen if device is used in continuous vibrating environment like mountain bike.

Changing battery or fixing contacts issue is explained there :

That can be a problem with charging part of the unit or the unit is completely dead, if its still under warranty you can try to replace it from the manufacturer..

My 305 is 3 years old. Recently, after the device is fully charged, it works approximatlly 1 hour and then turns off. on the bike it turns of with every bump on the road. when running, trying to use one of...


Seems you cumulate several issues. If device works only one hour when charged at maximum, without bumps, then your battery is dead, because too long time discharged. You should change it.

The Bumps issue is another one, generally due to bad contacts inside device. Only way to solve is to open device, then arrange for golden contacts inside to be in closer contact or short circuit these by soldering small wires.

My Toshiba satelllite A 305-S6905 System unit laptop just stopped charging , it does not switch on. only yesterday, it was working fine with no problems. it is just two years old .


Please check your battery for right voltage. if the voltage is down check the voltage in your adapter. If there is no voltage in the adapter then you might have to open check the continuity of the cord, normally this cord shorts and the adapter cutts off supply due to a high current error. So if there is shor tremove or other wise check the SMPS circuit for failed components, fuse, recifier, capacitor, driver. However if adapter works there must be supply at the battery terminal of the laptop, if not you have a failure in the charging circuit in the laptop. Hope you check this out one by one. Hope I could help. Good day

Won't turn on...hear the beep, and screen works.


Exact same problem for me on the exact same day (2-sep) as well - freaky! Unit was out of battery and I charged it but that was the last time I managed to get it working - charging it now to see if it makes any diff. Actually with mine I hear the beep and the initial splash screen shows for about 1 sec and then that's it - it seems to go off again. I think it's something to do with the battery as it seems to work when connected to the charger - not a whole lot of good to me!

I think that you have got a loose connection on the battery. I had the same problem, took the top off and had a poor connection on one of the battery terminals.

Any jolt would cause it to shut down.

Should be a simple fix if you don't mind going inside!
