Replace it. I think the battery is dead and unless you are up for cracking open the case it is done done for... You can always try a mast rest first though... Just google that one.

My Garmin 301 if not being recognized by my computer.


Which operating system is on the computer?
The Foretrex is not compatible with Windows® 95, 98, Me, or NT. It is also not compatible with Mac® OS 10.3 and earlier. This is a common limitation of most USB mass storage devices.

Also, check to be sure that the USB cable is not defective.

Water inside Garmin, so no display.

This was recommended by Coopers4508 under the Forerunner 201 thread, and it worked equally well for my Foretrex 101.
As Coops said:
I know it sounds crazy, but worked without damage. Placed the forerunner in a table vice (long end to end) and gently applied pressure, opened right up.
It worked perfect for me - just be sure to compress slowly and listen for the separation of the centre seam. A very tidy solution.

You may have the contrast set wrong. After power up, wait about 15 sec. and use the arrow keys to adjust the contrast. Do not use any othe keys. This may be the problem. If not, try an auto reset.
Hoped this helped...
