I had the same problem and this is what Garmin had me do. Charge it for 3 hours then try the reset again by holding RESET and POWER at the same time for 30 seconds. If still no-go the unit will have to be repaired. Garmin's base fixing price is about 80 dollars. I didn't want to pay that so I found a new one on eBay for 50 bucks.

    JohnE5 thanks for posting your comment although it was done 2 years ago. I just recently experienced same problem and when I did a search your posting came up. Fortunately, my Garmin reset worked and now it is operational! I appreciate you taking the time to post your experience. Hope that all is well with you!

That unit is probably 7-10 years old... it probably has a dead battery. either buy a new one or get out your special screw driver kit to see if the one inside can be ordered from someone like Batteries+ or Amazon.com

Did you just post about a dead battery? I think you did. Either replace the battery or get a new unit.

I'm looking to buy a replacement charging cradle for my Garmin Forerunner 201 but the only ones I can find also come with an adapter and I'd prefer not to pay for something I don't need. Any suggestions?


Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020. You can order the cradle part for your Forerunner 201 for $6.54 plus $8.00 shipping. You can also get the complete charger on Ebay as low as $20.50 including shipping. Thats the best I could find.

My forerunner 201 won't turn on. It shows a full charge when I connect it to the charger, and will turn on when connected to the charger. After disconnecting it from the charger it won't turn on again.


You might be able to get the unit to power on by re-installing the unit software. Get the Garmin WebUpdater to install the current version again, which will reset the device into the on state once it's done.

When I turn my Garmin Forerunner 201 on, the background lights up but there is no display, it is just blank. Pushing the buttons produces a beep sound but still no display. Is there a something I can do,...


Hold the reset lap button along with the power button for three seconds and let go of them at the same time. It took a few tries but it eventually worked.
