Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.

Hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then try to turn on the unit and use it.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

ok, it is either the battery or mainboard that has faulted, being 3 years, it is very common that the battery is the issue and needs replacement

The battery you can get here

I have a film on replacing the battery for the forerunner which is the same procedure for you

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
