Hi,

Inadvertently, you did a soft reset. Like most current electronic devices, a reset can and may revert a stuck/frozen/hanged to default factory conditions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Incidentally, the reset is done by pressing the "Mode"(reset/lap) and "Power" buttons at the same time.

    Additionally, you may want to update the unit to the latest available firmware here.

Looks like its dead.

Best solution, sell it on ebay as is (ud be suprised how many people would bid on it for spare parts) and use that money, with a little bit on top from you to buy a new one

Cheers

That can be a problem with charging part of the unit or the unit is completely dead, if its still under warranty you can try to replace it from the manufacturer..

Hope that helps.............

Garmin Edge 305 completely dead, any ideas why? It worked yesterday.


I found that switching the device on and/or off while connected to the computer can leave the screen blank, and won't give any sign of life when the ON/OFF button is pressed. In reality the device is on and the batteries will drain. Try a RESET in that case by pressing ON/OFF and MODE buttons, and briefly pressing the LAP button.

There is a hidden recessed button on the right side of the Garmin. Press this button and it should reset the unit and it should turn on immediately.
