Question about Garmin Forerunner 405 Handheld GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a garmin Forerunner 405 and the time was locked at 7:25 am.  I held the two side buttons down in an attempt to reset it, and it just cleared the screen completely.  I charged it last night, and the screen is still completely blank.

Hi

I had a similar problem, the screen lock while trying to turn GPS on. Tried all butttons and bezel operations, left it charging overnight - no joy. Eventually pressed and held both buttons and after about 30 secs (did not time it but was about that) it restarted.

Good luck!

My Garmin Forerunner 405 is completely locked up.


In regards to the locked up Garmin: Press and hold BOTH side buttons at the same time until the unit goes blank. Once released, it should be reset...... This should not remove any history or settings.

Forerunner 405 completely frozen


I had exactly the same problem. i looked through this site and found some advice that said to hold both buttons (quit/enter) for 7-10 seconds, which resets, but apparently doesn't wipe your info - happy days :)

Unsuccesful installation firmware 2.30 to 2.50


I had a similar problem. After a few attempts I was able to update the firmware to version 2.50. This is what I did:
1. Close the ANT Agent application by right clicking on the icon next to the clock and selecting Exit.
2. Reset the Forerunner 405. Mine was frozen on the LOADER screen. I held both buttons for a few seconds and released them when the rebooting process started.
3. Open the ANT Agent application and then go to the GARMIN webpage to download the update. Make sure you have the latest ANT Agent version.
4. The update process started and ended in about 2 minutes. Then it started again and lasted anothe 9 minutes.
5. The watch reboots with the new firmware version but retains all data amd customs settings.
Good luck.

Updated firm ware on 405


Make sure you have the latest ANT version.
Remove the pending firmwire program that wants to be transfered to the forerunner. (right-click + select delete)
Reset the watch (hold both buttons for 6 seconds, lift upper button, hold lower botton for another 3 seconds)
Then start all over again.
This fixed the problem for me.

I cannot clear a 'to a location' screen


I too was frustrated with this one. I played with the watch until I found the solution... Hope this helps!

For some reason I needed to be in the training mode to do this.

From the Time/Date mode, do the following:
1.) Press the start/stop button (upper metal button) to get out of Time/Date mode
2.) Press the Training side of the bezzle. You will see a workout display.
3.) Touch the GPS side of the bezzle until "to location" shows up
4.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to display a menu (may have to do this a couple of times, eventually when you release the button the menu does show up)
5.) Slide downward through the menu options until you find GPS
6.) Click the start/stop button (upper metal button) to toggle the gps on or off
7.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to exit the menu (goes to the "to a location" screen)
8.) Press and hold the Training side of the bezzle to return to your training screen

Reset the garmin 405 and now it just keeps beeping


Sorry...I don't have a solution because I'm having the same problem with my Garmin FR60...just took it to a watch repair shop, and they can't fix it. Any solutions?

I held both buttons in for about 30 seconds, as someone else had suggested. finally the screen went blank and then it came back as normal.
