You may have the contrast set wrong. After power up, wait about 15 sec. and use the arrow keys to adjust the contrast. Do not use any othe keys. This may be the problem. If not, try an auto reset.

Garmin foretrex 301 will not power up


Replace it. I think the battery is dead and unless you are up for cracking open the case it is done done for... You can always try a mast rest first though... Just google that one.

I have Nokia 5130c, it can not identify to pair with my Bluetooth BH-101


Try to remove all the paired deviceson your phone, then make sure bluetooth is switched on i.e on your phone, then switch of the bluetooth headset and try switching it back on when its on it should show a flashing blue light on the side o on the top, when its sflashing search for new devices on you fone, if its recongised and asks you for a key type four zeros (0000), this should work

Pc has power but nothing shows on screen. motherboard doesnt beep once like it used to when turned on but green light is on indicating its ok.


dear,

Remove the ram and check, is the motherboard beeps or not..

it should beep as long beeps....and should continue beeping after serveral times until u switch off it...
then reconnect the ram after swiching off power...

remove the data cables of hdd and cd/dvd and then try to switch it on...
if it works fine then reconnect it properly...

Fault can be in Ram or data cables perhaps...

regards,

hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

Water inside Garmin, so no display.


This was recommended by Coopers4508 under the Forerunner 201 thread, and it worked equally well for my Foretrex 101.
As Coops said:
I know it sounds crazy, but worked without damage. Placed the forerunner in a table vice (long end to end) and gently applied pressure, opened right up.
It worked perfect for me - just be sure to compress slowly and listen for the separation of the centre seam. A very tidy solution.

Garmin fortrex 101 won't aquire any satelites


Does it pick up any at all? you need 3 to get a fixed posistion. If you see one or two picking up then it may be your location. Also try doing a firmware update, I have seen that fix this problem on other units.

Connecting Garmin Foretrex to PC


Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have been having problems downloading the wayponts but not the tracks. I use Street Atlas USA and have NO problems downloading all data with my garmin GPS12. I notified garmin about this problem. To see if your gps is recieving data try using the geocaching.com web site. Sign up [ it is free ] and click on an icon cache in yoir area, then click on send to gps. You will be prompted to download free software to use it. Once it is installed, try the above option again. You will get a menu that shows devices shown. Look for the fortrex and send it to the gps. Make sure your gps is in " GARMIN " mode for the interface. If it shows your fortrex then it is communicating with it. Download the cache to your fortrex and then look at it in the waypoint file of the gps. The web site is :http://www.geocaching.com/

Garmin Foretrex 101 won't respond to pushed buttons


while this may not be a fully working solution, have you guys tried pressing and holding the page button while at the same time pressing power. hold them in for a while and see what happens. it might just work. mine is sort of working after doing it a couple of times. page+power same time and hold longer than 5 sec just to be sure.
