My garmin 205 got wet. It will turn on when I charge it or reset, but none of the buttons work individually. It still tells me pace, but can't start time and stuff like that. Thanks, Michael

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.

Does garmin 205 have a light up screen for night use?


Yes it does. Pressbutton 1 (top left hand button) to turn on the light and again to turn it off.

If you don't have a copy of the user manual, go to http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/984_OwnersManual.pdf to down load a copy.

The power wont turn on


The instructions say that you should "press and hold the ON" button (top left).

Perhaps you are not holding it on long enough (I think that a delay is built into the buttons to prevent accidental operation due to catching it on something).

If you haven't already done so, try replacing the battery.

You can remove the battery cover with a small coin, check the type (all batteries are marked) and buy a replacement.

Good luck!

The watch has been working fine and suddenly will


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:

The unit does not switch on nor does it show battery charging in progress when attatched to the charger unit


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.
