Question about Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS Receiver
Garmin Forerunner 205 Battery won't charge. Reset doesn't work. A few day's ago I could use him for hours. After I turn him of, I couldn't start him, or charge him. There is just nothing to see on the screen. Warming him up doesn't help. Please help!
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 had the same problem, the unit face was a bit loose and when I pressed the edges down while the unit was on the charging cradle, the charging notice appeared. But when I released the edges, the charging stopped. So I opened up the unit, cleaned the edges the super-glued the face back on. The Garmin charges fine now.
The face is easy to pry off, I think the plastic housing gets distorted over time and the top face doesn't seat very well. But super-glue worked well in this case, hopefully it'll last.
