Question about Garmin Rino 130 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
I have been using my Garmin rino 130 for almost 3 years for hiking. All of the suddenly it does not power on. I have swap batteries and nothing, I use rechargable batteries and made sure they were recharge and nothing. Brought new ones recharge and nothing. Put in new regular ones and nothing. try hooking up to the PC no power to the GHarmin. Can you please help? I enjoy using the rino. I can not even do a firmware update because I have not power to the unit.The User manual has no solution.
There first 2 main thing to check..... the off on switch.... and the fuse. Insie the radio there is a very small fuse.... its a surface mount component fuse... very small. That could be the problem. Also check the contacts on the radio..... if you have a way of connecting the correct voltage directly to the radios power terminals using jumpers I would definatly do it. Your most likly going to have to take the raio apart and and connect the battery to trace the power through it. The small fuse will be one of the first components after the positive power input. If this seems too much..... bring it to a radio shop... they can do all this quickly
