Question about Garmin Rino 530 GPS Receiver
I can not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on unless I press the "page-enter-power" buttons all at the same time. I have read that this is a factory reset sequence, but I never have received the warning message, but the power will come back on. I have to remove the battery to turn it off.
When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.
Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.
