My Garmin Forerunner 305 was plugged in and charging. It was showing BATTERY CHARGING IN PROGRESS. I touched it, and the message disappeared and now it's dead. It won't do anything.

Check the charger transformer, feel it for heat, is it warm? If it's cold, it's dead and you will need to replace it. If it's warm, it could be working and you need to check the battery. It' difficult to know what you have there with the battery and the charger without putting a meter on it.

I put the 305 on the charger at night and I see the charging in progress message. When I wake up it is blank and the unit will not power up? It's like the battery is dead and it won't respond to the...


Over charging sometimes does that effect.

However, best is reset the device. Try soft reset first, if not sufficient, try hard reset.

Soft reset : Hold mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, then release.
Hold start button then for 10 seconds, device should restart.

Hard reset : Hold mode and start button. 10seconds after, still holding them, pulse press lap/reset button, then release all.
You should get a screen asking to confirm reset to factory settings. You'll loose all data by this, but device should restart with normal behavior.

It is totally dead and will not charge.


Had same issue... this worked for me:
1. Snap into charger base & plug into wall. Screen still blank. 2. Press Lap/reset, Mode, & Power buttons all three at the same time & hold for 3 seconds - unit will reset. Hopefully then you'll get the 'charging in progress' message.
(also make sure copper points/connectors on unit and charger base are clean).

Garmin Forerunner 205 Battery won't charge. A few


Hey everyone. Just called Garmin and got it fixed. Sometimes the forerunner goes into power saver mode and needs to be reset

1. Hook up the usb cable and docking station to the computer.
2. Next, hook up your forerunner to the Docking station - It should pop up saying battery charging in progress
3. Leave it all hooked up and Hold the Mode and Lap/Reset Button together for 15 seconds - screen should go blank.
4. Let both go - should pop back up saying battery charging in progress.
5. Let Charge 20 minutes and it should be good to go.

Hope this helps!!!

I have the forerunner 305 - it is not taking a charge and won't turn on??? I have only used it 4 or 5 times


Plug in the garmin to the wall.
Hold down the reset and mode buttons for 3 seconds.
Try to turn it on or look for the "charing in process" words.
