    My Garmin Forerunner 305 is completely locked up. I have tried soft and hard reset nothing. (Pressing mode and enter on off you name it) Of course Garmin technical support is closed for the next 3 days. I thought I could pop out the battery to try to reset.

    So frustrating! Anyone out there have a possible solution?

    Thanks

Well it is an accumulator instead of a battery so just recharge it.
If the accumulatoris gone I think you have to use the garmin support

Jim Rogers had a similar problem and on his blog, he provides complete instructions on how did it. Apparently, Garmin wants $79 to do this work - but it sounds like he did it for significantly less that that.

Check Jim's blog (by clicking) below:

If it looks too involved for you, check Garmin's "Out of Warranty page, below:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Yes you can. Go to the Garmin Website and simply email them asking for the price of the battery and instructions on how to replace your specific model and serial number as they changed in mid year many times.

Automotive silicon/gasket maker.

Use a tooth pick to put a VERY small amount of silicon around the entire seam. Put the two half's together and wrap tightly with electrical tape. Test the unit immediately to see if it powers on and off. If it does not open it back up and raise the small prongs that make the connection from the bottom half to the top half.
If any silicon squishes out the sides wipe with water and a rag.
Let the unit sit over night. In the morning remove the tape.

Battery doesen't keep the charge. I can't open the case to change battery forerunner 305


Hi Samdot,

I have just been through a similar problem through ingress of water into the device (They are not in the slightest bit water proof)

My device would power on, but only in the cradle attached to the usb and it would say the battery was fully charged after 4 seconds.

Any way, the battery can be replaced using the following method.
Take a decent, thin penknife and gently lever the top off the Garmin (follow the crease above the buttons). There are no catches to be aware of it is just lightly glued.

Once the lid is off you will be able to remove the two circuit boards (they just sit in there) and you will see the battery in the bottom of the case.

Unscrew the two small screw above the battery connections and you will be able to replace the li-ion battery which is in place.

I can provide images if that would be useful.

Make sure the small prong under the battery is bent out a bit, sounds like an intermittened connection problem.
