>Gears and Wears>My Garmin died
Try a hard reset....
Search the forums here for the exact key sequence...
I think there are two resets one to get it back on and the other will erase all of your data during the reset.
If it really is dead REI has a 100% satisfaction policy I bet they would work with you. My wife's Garmin 205 literally flipped it's lid (the entire top of the watch popped off) a month after we bought it and REI replaced it with no issues.
Here is one of the resets:
This one includes the the one that erases everything (so they say):
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
ya my garmin is slowly going down hill. Like on long runs of 12 miles or more it seems to stop the stop watch, and then i dont get accurate times or distance. very disappointing when when you have just ran 10 and a solid pace.
Is the garmin set on workouts. If not do a master reset. A master reset will remove all data so save it in your log firsr.
Run until the trail runs out.

I had the same problem with my 205--my unit a little older, actually. The first time I called the customer service rep and I thought it might just be that the thing wasn't staying on the cradle, so we tried putting a rubber band around it to charge, but I should've known that wasn't it because the thing did say "Charge Complete," in retrospect. When I called back the next day saying "Thanks for nuttin'" the new guy felt so bad that they sent me a new unit--no charge!--though I would gladly have spent the $79 for it to be fixed.
Call; they'll make sure you get it set right. The hardest part is the 10-14 day wait for it to get back.
