I moved the battery wires to the main board, bypassing the spring contacts. No doubt my warranty is voided but at least the thing works now.

SOURCE: Garmin Edge 305 completely dead

I found that switching the device on and/or off while connected to the computer can leave the screen blank, and won't give any sign of life when the ON/OFF button is pressed. In reality the device is on and the batteries will drain. Try a RESET in that case by pressing ON/OFF and MODE buttons, and briefly pressing the LAP button.

Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

yes you can open the unit by prising it apart between the rubber grey area and the black bottom half as it is glued together, take it easy and it will come apart, downside is that you have to glue it back together. as for the button you can access them as soon as you open the unit but take time to record where all goes...

Opening forerunner 305


Hi

I have a problem with my 305 whereby the mode button stopped working so semi pulled mine apart.

If you look at the 305 from the side you can see where the rubber bit covers the buttons. The bottom of the rubber bit is attached to the rear of the forerunner - don't try to detach it - I munted mine a bit detaching it. At the top of the rubber, nearest the face you'll see a small gap. Follow the gap anti clockwise from the power button down to bottom left corner of the face near where the wrist strap pin is. Here you'll see the gap is plastic on plastic on plastic. I believe a thumbnail or similar in here and worked around carefully will let you pry the face off. I stuck my thumbnail in there and got the face to lift 1-2mm before I backed off. Note I didn't go any further than that.

For my problem by the time I had munted the rubber cover and was able to operate the mode button with a paperclip I new it was dead so didn't bother going any further as I could still use the 305 in reduced mode without mode changing.

I'm taking a wild guess here but it sounds like your reset button seems stuck. Pressing mode+reset restarts the unit ... you can lift the buttons off. See if there is moisture underneath? Or maybe the button just needs reseating?
