My Garmin s1 shows bar code like display

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 connect the charger and try to turn on the S1.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

Now have display showing Garmon but nothing else seems to work Have plugged into pc via usb and not recognised by computer. Have Garmin express downloaded onto pc and on windows 10 if that makes any difference.

OK, open Garmin express, connect it to a different USB port on the computer and tell me if it is then detected please.

No joy there either. Have tried other devices and ports ok. Just re plugged in Garmin and got brief message flagged up saying that usb device malfunctioned and not recognised. Would this then be appliance or cable?


It is the internal mainboard that has faulted, a faulty cable would still let it charge

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the unit to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
