Dear All, just went to charge my Garmin but it is totally dead - after an initial flicker of life on the screen, it all went blank. Has anyone else had this problem, is there a solution or is it RIP Forerunner?

I've got the 220 and only found out last week you can turn it off! Try giving it a good charge then press and hold the light button. Which turns it on and off.

Maybe you already know that though.

I had this issue with mine along with numerous others. Gave the thing up in the end and got the 910 which I've never had problems with.

A hard reset sometimes worked with mine, can't remember how to do it but I found it online. It involves pressing various buttons in a certain order! Mine usually went in time for races despite charging it the night before. Crock of shit!

Thank you so much for the advice - tried the hard reset and it has come back on. Fingers crossed it will last as long as December and I will ask Santa for a new one xx

This happens to my 110 on a fairly regular-ish basis, I panicked the first few times but now I just look at this thread and one of the suggestions has always worked (so far). https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?10639-Forerunner-110-Blank-Screen-(Dead)/page3
