I had this same problem with my Rino 530. I searched google with no luck. As I was on the phone with Garmin, I put side pressure on the adapter (that plugs into the clip, which clips to the battery) and the red light would stay on. They said I needed a new wall charger and clip. So in the mean time I wrapped electrical tape around the adapter to keep pressure on it. Charges great now. Hope this helps!

When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals.It never goes past this screen.Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%.I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result.I’ve tried it while connected to the charger.Same result.I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries.Same result.Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.
Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.
There is no way to set the date and time becayse the system clock in your Garmin Rhino 120 should be updating based on the information it receives from the GPS satellites. The radio should auto locate itself within about five minutes of being turned on providing it has a clear view of the sky. Once it sucessfully auto locates the radio's clock and position should reset. There does not appear to be any other reset built into the device.
Try taking the batteries out for at least 5 minutes. Then, reinstall the batteries, turn the unit on, and give the unit 5-10 minutes to auto locate. If it doesn't, you may need to contact Garmin support for additional sevice.
