Power supply damage is most likely and depending on cost of the unit itself may or may not be worth fixing---kind of like hooking a radio up backwards on a 12 volt system--damage is INSTANT and sometimes fatal.

Try a reset. Hold the reset and power button for 30 seconds.

SOURCE: Change battery on Garmin Forerunner 301

Hi - look at this solution for a forerunner 201, which has the same case design. I was just looking myself! R_nz Rank: Apprentice Rating: 96%, 8 votes I've made some progress here, I discovered that there is a small notch beneath the flat black pastic insert that holds the rubber button cover in. By gently prising this out, I can at least expose the pcb with the buttons on. I still can't figure out how to open the case though ****! Comments: Jan 29, 2008 - Well, I got there in the end! As above, I managed to prise the plastic insert cover off the rubber button cover, the peeeled this off as well. Underneath is a mylar printed circuit with the silver domeos of the buttons moulded in. This is siliconed down, but you can peel it up with a fingernail. The top left end (above the on button) is aatached inside the case, so start at the other end. Jan 29, 2008 - .ctd.. Once you have lifted the mylar strip, you can get at the case seam underneath and prise it gently open with a flat blade. The case is glued together with a light silicon or something. My problem was unresponsive buttons and by detaching and then re-attaching the small connector by the big silver block where the mylar attaches to the main board and then re-attaching it, it seemed to fix it! :-) Oct 22, 2008 - As an end-note; I glued my 201 back together with a light Silicone sealer. It seems to be at least rain proof anyway. Forerunner 201 battery replacement (Expert level): Opening the 201 was not easy and could not be done 100% clean, but thanks to R_nz (above) I got it open. My problem was dead (almost) battery, after 6 years of superb operation. I found the battery to be glued (double sided tape) to the back cover. To remove, push it up slowely and pull out. Beware of the short wires. 1. It is a flat battery, wrapped in shrinkable tube. Made by MDTechnology, P/N 043048 3.7V, 500mAh see http://www.mydbattery.com/EN/products.asp?ID=12 2. On the cover, the battery is soldered to the underside of a small PCB, hard to get to (by expert!). If you find a battery, suggest to cut the wires and solder wire-to-wire. Hope that helps

I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

Try SW reset. Hold Mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, then release and long press start until device restarts.
Should clean up default.

If not try hard reset, but you'll loose all data in device.
hold mode and start for ten second, device needs to off before.
Then keeping these, pulse press lap/reset.
You'll get a confirmation screen

SOURCE: Garmin Forerunner 205 Battery won't charge. A few

Hey everyone. Just called Garmin and got it fixed. Sometimes the forerunner goes into power saver mode and needs to be reset

1. Hook up the usb cable and docking station to the computer.
2. Next, hook up your forerunner to the Docking station - It should pop up saying battery charging in progress
3. Leave it all hooked up and Hold the Mode and Lap/Reset Button together for 15 seconds - screen should go blank.
4. Let both go - should pop back up saying battery charging in progress.
5. Let Charge 20 minutes and it should be good to go.

Hope this helps!!!

I want to know how to open the device to change the battery


Possible that the battey is weak and so will charge up fast and show a full charge. It will be best to check with a swapped battery and if so the battery can be replaced.
Also cross check the adaptor.

My garmin was automaticly flashing differnt modes continously. Now it won,t turn on at all.


whoa, mine just starting doing that too. Today on a run it just started flashing through the 3 screens and I couldn't turn it off. It kept logging the run so I kept going. Then it would stop flashing sometimes during the run and I'd press the up or down arrow and it'd start flashing again. Now it's in the cradle and I can't sync it up but the battery is charging. Any ideas how to fix this?

Brand new out of the box Volitation 9053 wont take a charge. Charger never goes green to indicate full charge. At most I get 5-10 seconds of weak spin and then the red light on the ECS board flashes.\r\n ...


A 7.4 volt battery is two 3.7 volt Li-Po batteries in series. Battery has
expired, there is no saving it anymore in fact dangerous just having
around. Li-Po batteries are very sensitive to over charging and also
to being under charged, usually the device that's being operated by
this battery has a safety catch called a BLC (battery limit circut).
So battery won't drop below the safe voltage of about 20% of full
charge.
FYI Don't even mess with this battery anymore, replace it. When Li-Po
batteries blow up they have a VERY high temperature flash and can easily set a garage, house,ect on fire in a split second.
Have fun and be safe.

Garmin Forerunner 305 won't turn on and won't charge. Is there a fix or is this it for the device?


Look at
"http://www.activesplit.com/my-garmin-forerunner-305-doesnt-power-on-its-just-dead-solutions/"

You can soft reset or hard reset the device. Hard reset deletes all data.

Ive not had my garmin 305 long, it will not charge or turn on.


This might just need a reset. To reset the Forerunner or Edge 205/305:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Press and hold the mode and reset (lap) buttons together for 10 seconds
  3. Release and wait for 3 seconds
  4. There should be some indication of battery charging (either Finished or In Process)
  5. Power the device on while keeping it connected to the computer
In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest software version available by downloading and running the WebUpdater program. To update the software, please use the following link:
