The watch has been working fine and suddenly will

The watch (Forerunner 205 - 3 years old) has been working fine and suddenly will not operate at all - it will not turn on or indicate that it is charging. Is this something that can be fixed or is the watch 'dead'?

I would recommend having the charger checked for good electrical flow and I would also have the rechargeable battery inside the watch checked. Even capacitors need to be replaced every so often because they just get wore out. Also, be sure that you arent exposing your charger or watch to extreme temperatures as this will cause problems.


If you have trouble finding a shop that can do this you can contact Garmin support directly at:

You need to contact Garmin and have them replace or repair the watch. If the watch is less than a year old, it will be under warranty. Older than a year it may be a repair or replace only situation, Garmin will have to determine that. It is not unusual for the forerunner series to have rechargeable batteries that die off.

Does garmin 205 have a light up screen for night use?


Yes it does. Pressbutton 1 (top left hand button) to turn on the light and again to turn it off.

If you don't have a copy of the user manual, go to http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/984_OwnersManual.pdf to down load a copy.

The power wont turn on


The instructions say that you should "press and hold the ON" button (top left).

Perhaps you are not holding it on long enough (I think that a delay is built into the buttons to prevent accidental operation due to catching it on something).
