Garmin Forerunner 210W screen is blank. No charging symbol appears when it is on the charger.


Not sure if this is useful but double check that your charger connection to the Garmin is actually clean. I've had to clean the contacts for both my 405 and my 610 in order to make sure there was a solid electrical connection. Have you tried resetting it?

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.

My Garmin forerunner 305 recently got immersed in


I have read in some other posts about the unit only working while being plugged into a USB port. My guess is that the battery is in fact shot and the unit will only run off the USB port while plugged in. Submersing in water is not a good idea. On the back of the unit there are some small holes for the speaker. These speakers corrode from sweat and eventually quit.

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!!!

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!
