- Dead Garmin
1 hour in the rain, pretty sure it was mostly covered for that time, I plugged it in to hear a beep then the screen go blank…I’ve taken the back off and left it on a book on the radiator, no change yet.
It’s a 2 month old 210, should I be surprised? I can get it warrantied as I work for a retailer, but am not impressed…Posted 4 years agodoboMember
forerunner 210? its not broken! probably.
it just needs a hard reset. dont take it apart!
do a google, theres a certain combination of button presses that resets the watch and it will spring to life.
ive had it happen a couple of times and never remember the button preses and usually just press them all a load of time and sometimes it comes back.
mines been plenty wet and works fine just try not to submergePosted 4 years agomonkeyfudgerMember
My 510 died last week, on/off button stopped doing anything but when I touched the screen the start screen would flash up and then go off a second later. Tried all the reset procedures with no joy. I noticed the week leading up to the total failure that when switching it on the screen would flash 7 – 8 times as if resetting itself, the battery would then show 100% when it def wasn’t. Pretty frustrated actually, it’s only 3 months old, failure started after a particularly wet/cold ride. Sent it back a week ago but according to the bike shop Garmin haven’t even looked at it yet, they’re “working” on a two week turnaround.Posted 4 years agodoboMember
It won’t even switch on, so a reset appears impossible.
yep thats what usually happens with mine, no screen or functions whatsover, try the various reset methods, if i recall the hard reset wipes previous data on watchPosted 4 years agogeoffjSubscriber
The charger for the Forerunner 210 is piece of shit design. Getting the clamp to line up and the pins to engage is far more faff than it should be and I think is the cause of lots of random shutting down and inability to turn on properly.
The plastic cradle for the Forerunner 10 is much better.Posted 4 years ago
