Customer Question

When I plug in the charger, the Garmin logo appears for a few seconds, then the battery symbol showing little charge and then the screen goes blank. This happens over and over when plugged into the charger.

Customer: Garmin S2 and two years old.
JA: What happened right before this popped up?

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.

Remove the charger from the Garmin and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.

Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the unit

Let me know the results please

Thank you
