Garmin 305 Heart Rate Function Gone
I Have had the same problem couple of times (and forgotten each time how I solved it). I figured it out just now and this is what I did.
1) turn on unit and put on heart monitor (make sure battery is good and wet heart strap)
2) using the mode button navigate the menus to: Settings: General: Accessories: Heart Rate Monitor
3) Once in the Heart Rate Monitor option make sure "Yes" is selected and then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Restart Scan" . Press the enter button to rescan for your heart monitor. (I had to rescan twice)
Go back to the main monitor screen to see if you are recieving heart rate signals.
I am not sure why a manual rescan needs to be done every time but it would be nice if Garmin fixed this issues in a unit software update (my unit has software version 2.80)

Garmin 305 not communicating with Training Center
I am new to the Garmin Edge 305, and started getting this problem yesterday. Indeed, yesterday it was the first time that I downloaded Courses.
I followed the Guest solution, deleted all new courses from my Garmin, and it now WORKs!!!!
Uploading my courses back again to the Garmin made the problem return back. I need some more work to identify the bad course.

Forerunner 305 battery replacement
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.
