You need to contact Garmin and have them replace or repair the watch. If the watch is less than a year old, it will be under warranty. Older than a year it may be a repair or replace only situation, Garmin will have to determine that. It is not unusual for the forerunner series to have rechargeable batteries that die off.
I would recommend having the charger checked for good electrical flow and I would also have the rechargeable battery inside the watch checked. Even capacitors need to be replaced every so often because they just get wore out. Also, be sure that you arent exposing your charger or watch to extreme temperatures as this will cause problems.
If you have trouble finding a shop that can do this you can contact Garmin support directly at: 1-800-800-1020 or garmin.com/support
The device may just be locked up and needs to be reset so that it can start up normally. To do a reset on the device, make sure the unit is plugged in to the charging cable/cradle and connected to power. Next press and hold the Mode + Reset buttons at the same time for approximately 10 seconds. After releasing the Mode + Reset buttons, attempt to power the device on normally.
