Unsuccesful installation firmware 2.30 to 2.50

Installation process seems succesful, but it isn't. Eventually there is still the old firmware (2.30) in my Forerunner 405.span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; } span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; }

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.

Updated firm ware on 405


Make sure you have the latest ANT version.
Remove the pending firmwire program that wants to be transfered to the forerunner. (right-click + select delete)
Reset the watch (hold both buttons for 6 seconds, lift upper button, hold lower botton for another 3 seconds)
Then start all over again.
This fixed the problem for me.

I can't update the firmware on my forerunner 405 . The watch gives a transfer unsuccesful message, have tried repeatedly.


There are two steps for the firmware update - two bad Garmin doesn't warn people upfront.

The first update is preparing for the ANT stick - it takes about two minutes.
The second step is the core of the firmware(software per Garmin) update which takes about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how busy the Garmin Connect site is.

Since you already got through and got the "unsuccessful" message, I assume you already know how to start the update properly.
To finish it - Make sure you do not interrupt the process, just let it run through the 2 steps mentioned above.  And be patient - the 2nd step follows the 1st step automatically.  Don't touch the bezel and change screen during the update, just leave it alone.  It took me a few times to get it done successfully because after the 1st step finished, I started to flipping screens to find out if it get updated to ver 2.50, before I found out there would be step 2 coming automatically.
If you see the process bar moving after the 2nd step and see "software loading" you are in for good.

Hope this may help.

Shower cold water won't shut off


You can repair it from the front. Worst care replacing the whole stem assemble. Take it out from the front,  see what is wrong (Washer  fell off?, Stripped stem?) Take the old part to the plumbing supply that sells that brand and match it up.

Panasonic DMR-E85H unit 1 - powers up then goes to ''Please Wait'' and no further unit 2 - the picture output color is all wrong..very dark and very redspan.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196;...


This is a hard drive failure and is expensive to fix, and not worthwhile in my opinion.  Mine packed in with a disc stuck in the disc drive. It was difficult to retrieve. If you have no disc trapped in the tray, I would suggest dismantling anyway and removing the hard drive if you have a load of unwatched content recorded. You can buy a cable to hook it up to a PC - Although I have not done this yet.

Help! the green light flashes then nothing happens


I opened the transformer up, and found a lot of corrosion on the board, creating a short circuit between tracks. This corrosion was caused by poor workmanship in the manufacture. This board never had the fluxes cleaned off after soldering. I will be contacting Western Digital and requesting a replacement transformer. I suggest everybody with this problem should do the same.
