No reactions to any buttons:

Reset the training computer by pressing all the buttons simultaneously for two seconds until the display fills with digits. Press any button and set the time and date in Basic Settings after the reset. All other settings are saved. Skip the rest of the settings by pressing and holding STOP.

Did you throw the magnet on the crankarm? If not check the alignment of the transmitter and the magnet - sometimes they need to be quite close. Sometimes they just fail. I have seen instances where cadence worked and speed didn't and vice versa - so the unit is transmitting perfectly, but one of the sensors has gone bad.

Tip

Choosing Your Wireless Bike Computer


Wireless bike <b>computers</b> are pretty self-explanatory. They consist of a main unit and sensor, which shall inform through radio signals instead of traditional <b>cable transmitter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b>Wireless computers</b> are fairly easy to configure and install. Wireless computers eliminate the tedious task to wind the cable around the brake lines to make an extra length of wire. An experienced mechanic can probably<b> install a wireless computer</b> to less than 5 minutes. A novice user can probably still make the task less than 10 minutes. If your computer has cadence sensor, wireless sensors to get rid of problems with cable routing for long-stay chain without change and brake pipes.<br /> <br /> Some runners prefer to use <b>computers</b> in contexts out of circulation, since they are usually cheaper to replace in an accident. However, the absence of the child in the models reduces the possibility of connecting the sensor to the roots, rocks, brush, etc. .. Suspension forks and create additional obstacles. With the corded models, a pilot should be concerned with changing the length of the fork. wireless sensors allow the holder free travel without worrying about the tight rope or hook.<br /> <br /> When choosing a<b> wireless computer</b>, the set of cycling accessories, it is important to think about riding needs. There are several options with a range of features, technologies and prices to help cloud the decision-making. Riders must think things like screen size, buttons, advanced features such as cadence and heart rate. Big screens make viewing data easier, but the computer mainframe is generally much larger and makes the computer a bit more urgent. There are several options out there for <b>computers</b>. The best option is to visit some local shops and take really using computers.<br /> <br /> bicycle computers Vetta V100 Series provides an excellent opportunity for a cheap but feature-packed wireless bike computer. There are three models in the series, V100 WL2X - Standard V100HR WL2X - includes a heart rate monitor, and V100A WL2X - includes altimeter functions. All three computers include wireless speed and cadence sensor and has features such as high speed, cadence characteristics, formation lap and hours of service. V100 computers scored the best runners in several bars and left their mark in the Tour de France cycling by cycling team USPS.<br />

Unit is measuring cadence and heart rate, but is not measuring speed, distance or ride time.


Check to make sure your speed/ distance sensor is in alignment with your wheel magnet. If it is then check the battery in the sensor.

Speed and distance are on a different sensor than the cadence.

It sounds like you know what's wrong - distance. Take the magnet in your hand and wave it past the cadence sensor to see if THAT works.

As far as why your crankarm and chainstay are too far apart, well, maybe your bottom bracket is too long or something, but it is mostly beyond the scope of anyone who can't see it to judge. Take it to a bike shop and ask them.

Garmin Edge 305/GSC10 Cadence and speed sensor


Had the same problem. Here is how I fixed it.
1. Changed the battery in the cadence sensor. (GSC10)
2. Turned on my garmin 305 edge outside to acquire satellites (probably not nec but did it anyway)
3. Pressed reset on the GSC10, saw red/green flash (what order?)
4. Here's the missing step: On the Edge unit, go to SYSTEM.
5. Scroll to bottom, choose ACCESSORIES.
6. On acc. page, go to bottom, under Cadence Sensor, to the option RESTART SCAN. Press That. Now your cadence and speed should work.
