Question about Garmin eTrex GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Legend CX just died

Got into car and went to use it and it was dead. It was working before I got out the the car. Not a very hot day.....80 degrees. Unit is 3 years old...never any problems with buttons or the unit. Tried new rechargeables Tried new Alkaline...2 different sets Tried removing the memory card and powering up Called Garmin.....tried the 3 button reset. Nothing, no display. I have done electronics before....soldering, ribbon cables, IDC connectors, so I can probably repair if I knew what to try. Found the site on disassembly but thought I 'd try you first. Please help.

Connect your unit to your PC. Even if it doesn't show connected, run the software update for your unit. That has been known to work in the past.

Running the equipment on 72 degrees would cause the compressor and fan to work harder on hot days. This will definitely place more strain on your capacitor. These capacitor problems usually happen on the hottest days. I would suspect the capacitor, not the fan. I'm an HVAC tech, so I would Check both with my multimeter

Seems to be a complete electrical failure

Always start at least 80% of all vehicle checking with
the battery first

Never go by how many years or miles are on something

If some module failed to time out, your battery goes dead in,
as you said, about 3 days & check if you left the interior lights on
