Garmin 120 will not turn on

My garmin 120 won't turn on. I checked and replaced the batteries to include moving the battery connections for better contact. But nothing happens. Checked the batteries to ensure they are good.

My rino 655t wont take a charge


That unit has a special charger and harness.

Very similar to the Motorola
The Rino 650 and 655t includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. If the battery is not charging, ensure the battery is secure and the device is connected via the included A/C charger. The battery will not charge when connected via USB cable.

When turning on screen stays black


I have this same model never had a problem with it, test your batteries to make sure they are at least 1.5 volts. Move the batteries to make sure they are contacting the terminals.
not sure if this will work for yours but try it
To perform a master reset:
  1. Turn off the device
  2. Press the PAGE, ENTER2, and POWER buttons simultaneously
  3. Release all buttons once the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears
  4. Select Yes

Garmin Rino 110 Posted by nightjar on Jun 29, 2008 My two 110's have same problem. With two new sets of different brand NiMh rechargeables the problem still exists. Both units get warm and flatten the...


Re : " Both units Garmin Rino 110, overheat and flatten the batteries within 2 hours"

That is a factory defect related to a bad contact inside the unit.

If you contact garmin and insist to talk to a supervisor (second line) you can have both Rinos replaced.

Ensure it is not a bad batteries problem first testing a replacement battery, both batteries may have deteriorated at same time.

Buy first a replacement battery at Garmin eTrek, Rino 110/120 NiMH Battery,

If that does not solve the problem call Garmin:

Batteries die quickly - unit gets hot


You may have a bad or shorted battery pack. You might try replacing it to see if the problem goes away. It would be normal, while charging for a battery to get warm. But not hot. Rechargeable batteries have a life expectancy of 18-24 months.

By reading a number of forums, I've found that there was a WAAS satelitte update (bug), that causes this foul up.
The only solution I've been able to arrive at is DISABLE the WAAS feature, as no Garmin Update/patch (for Rino120) has been made available.
To shutoff the WAAS feature press your [Page] button until you arrive at the "Main Menu"
go down until your on the "Setup"(hammer)
go in (by pressing in, on the directional button)
go down until your on the "System"(gears)
go in (by pressing in, on the directional button)
go down until your on WAAS, go in and select the Disabled
go up to the "X" (top right) press it, then you can [Page] button anywhere you want from there.

----------
Wonder what WAAS is?

Take care.

PS- Garmin if you read this....I would like to have my WAAS back, and since I registered for updates, back in 2005, why didn't I get an email from you telling me about this issue (when it happened and provide a solution - at the same time :: even a work around as I've posted here)

To make un full reset


Hello Rahooty,

There is no way to set the date and time becayse the system clock in your Garmin Rhino 120 should be updating based on the information it receives from the GPS satellites. The radio should auto locate itself within about five minutes of being turned on providing it has a clear view of the sky. Once it sucessfully auto locates the radio's clock and position should reset. There does not appear to be any other reset built into the device.

Try taking the batteries out for at least 5 minutes. Then, reinstall the batteries, turn the unit on, and give the unit 5-10 minutes to auto locate. If it doesn't, you may need to contact Garmin support for additional sevice.

Best Regards,
Ken
