When they won't charge you can narrow it down to a few things. These are the battery, the connector, and the power supply adaptor.

If the battery is say 1-2 years old and has been charged a fair amount or times it may need replacing. Usually it should show some life when on the charger but die as soon as you try to run it on the battery.

The connectors sometimes get loose just from being inserted and extracted. This will cause it not to charge. Usually you can get some life out of it if you rotate or gently move it around and it will make contact. No fix for this other than replace the unit.

The charger is not supply any power ie its dead so your battery never charged and is probably flat. You may have got a brief blink of life after the watch sat for a while before the battery ran down too far.

And lastly the mainboard inside the watch has a problem. Unfortunately the only fix is to replace.

If you think it is under warranty still then take it in, otherwise you can try replacing the battery. Past that point you needto consider getting a replacement as it isn;t cost effective (worth it) to repair.

If it is more than 2 years old the battery is most likely defective and will not accept a charge, contact Garmion support for a the cost of installing a new battery, this assumes the charger checkes out good, any radio shack can test the charger for you.

I can not get my 405 to do anything when i plug into usb port


To connect the Forerunner to a computer, it is essential that you download "antagent" (free ) from the garmin site.

Have you done this?

You then have to pair the Forerunner with the computer.

If you haven't got the instructions, go to the Garmin web site (www8.garmin.com/support/userManual.jsp) and download the manual.

Any good watch repair shop can measure the size of your watch crystal and order a replacement, unless it happens to have some weird shape, like a heart, etc

Screen stuck on battery life indicator


My guess is the battery was just changed? This watch needs to be cleared when the battery is changed. I recommend seeing a watch maker/technician to have the circuit board AC'd.

Can`t pair Garmin Forerunner 50 with footpod


Hi,

I've been having the same problem. I couldn't pair my footpod, but my heart rate monitor was working. I've only had the 50 for about eight weeks.

I reset the watch, holding view mode and Start/Stop at the same time.
This didn't do any good.

I swapped the battery in the HRM with that in the foot pod. The foot pod synched the HRM didn't.

Solution duff battery. I'd change yours it will probably do the trick.

Hope it helps
