Question about Garmin Forerunner 301

Open Question

My garmin 301 won't charge anymore. I've determined that its not the charger so I'm thinking its the connector pins because I use to have to wriggle it around a few minutes to get to show the charging sign, now it won't charge at all. Greg

From dead flat it takes about 9-10 hours
do not leave on charger for more than that otherwise you will overheat and burn it out.

SOURCE: Garmin 205W doesn't work while charging in car

I have a 205w and have been very frustrated with this same issue, but I just so happened to find the following fix on another site today and it works great.
Follow these steps:
Turn on the unit on battery, press the battery icon and hold for about ten seconds, and the unit will switch to the diagnostic mode. Now plug in the USB cable and it will give you a loud bleep. Exit the diagnostic mode and it will operate normally while charging. This was handy to enter favorites while it was charging.

Make sure you have the rite charger. Garmin will only work with a garmin charger. You may have accidently picked up a blackberry charger or something. Hope this helps

Why want my tablet charge Where do I return my tablet it will not charge anymore


Most common cause of this is faulty charger, the metal connector at end of wire won't connect properly to device charging port.
Test it by putting plug back in Tablet charger port and very very gently wiggle it around very slowly, see if the charging light comes on or flickers. They usually make a beeping noise when successfully charging or the screen lights up. If you get intermittent charging then it's the charger and time to get a new one. Very common, most are USB connectors or small pin types.
If it's still under warranty then send it back to the place you bought it before you try testing it.

My rino won't charge


Two things occur to me: possible damage to socket where charger connects to unit------or no voltage from charge source to the battery

A lot of the connectors where the unit connects to power are easily damaged.

My motorola Blur won't charge, I've tried other chargers and nothing, it will catch a charge for a second and then nothing, now my phone is dead


My Motorola Blur would not charge kept saying Connect Charger. I tried various power connecters including the Original one that came with the phone and the USB to no avail. This morning I took the phone apart and clean it and still would not recognize the charger.

Fix: I lifted up the connector where the charger plugs into on the actual phone and now it is making contact and appears to now be charging my phone.

When I plug the gps into the charger a computer picture shows up and I can't get it on any other screen. What's the matter?


Did you recently purchase that charger?

This usually happens when the charger is not compatible with the unit. or you could be using a non-Garmin charger. There are some "store-brand" chargers that work well, and some do not. Store brand Charger are made to be Universal. To fit multiple devices and maximize profits. You want a Garmin Specific Charger, and here is the logic why...

The reason behind it:

1. The Garmin USB Cable that you connect to your computer has a special 4-pin configuration telling the GPS that is is connected to a computer. This is the configuration most "generic" chargers use to maximize device compatibility.

2. The Garmin Car Charger has a different pin configuration with 2 less pins, giving it only positive ( + ) and Negative ( - ) to charge the GPS.

When the GPS receives the 4 pin, which is also found in a "Motorola" Cell phone charger, it will automatically sense that it is connected to a computer.

Long winded, but I wanted to explain why. Simple fix, Just go get a new charger and make sure it's Garmin compatible.

Garmin Nuvi 750 car cradle/charger does not charge the unit. USB charger works, so not the battery. Replaced the cigarette lighter jack and still does not work. Problem must be in the dash mount cradle...


Hi tbrick

if you dont have the original charger, the 750 take a special car charger because of the traffic feature...it has a flat end about 3/4" to 1" long that fits in the cradle, but you can use a garmin usb charger, you just wont be able to use the traffic feature.

if thats a little confusing ( i tend to do that) i try and explain it another way.

if you think you need or want one of those chargers, just post back to me.

My garmin c330 will not charged


Disassemble then disconnect speaker/battery connector from printed circuit board. Individually cut the red, green and black wires from the battery. Tape over the wire ends of the connector and battery wires that were cut. Re-assemble and unit will work when plugged into 12Vdc. If you want to use the battery, it must be charged with an external Li-Ion charger using red + and black - for the charging connections to the battery. With the connector to the pc board disconnected, solder and tape the battery wires to the connector wires where cut. Re-assemble and it will work & charge.
