Hmmm. Trick one without seeing the unit.. The most obvious is that the battery in the chest strap is dead. If it's one of the sealed ones then the whole chest strap will need to be replaced, if not then it'll be a standard watch battery. I should be clear from the chest strap if the battery can be replaced.
If both batteries are ok then try to turn on the Forerunner, put on the chest strap(make sure to lick the back of the sensor or dip it in water to make a solid connection, strange I know but that's what they reccomend). Then hold your wrist wearing the Forerunner a couple of inches from the sensor on your chest, sometimes needs to be for 30 seconds or so.. All going well that should do it.. Beyond that you're into the software in the Forerunner itself and that has to go back to Garmin..

Can not turn on

Then it needs a new battery or some sort of repair. The button on the face turns the monitor on for use, if this doesn't work, then you need to replace something.
