Jim Cyr: *Garmin Forerunner 110 - How to Reset*
In this video I'll show you how to perform a gard reset on your garmin
forerunner 110. This is usually a good method when your unit is frozen or
You do this by holding down the lap/reset + light buttons at the same time
for a few seconds.
You will get a prompt to clear all user data, choose yes or no. Now the
unit will reset all settings and erase (or not) any user data. Leaving the
unit as if you just took it out of the box.
krista mackey: Oh my GOD! Thank you so much for this video! I was losing my mind when
Garmin Connect forced me to upgrade my watch and then froze up before it
finished! I thought it killed the watch.
Paul Hayden-Hart: Thanks - life saver!!
anonymom66: THANK YOU. The instructions on Garmin's website are wrong, for crying out
loud. Hope this hard reset fixes the problems I've been having w my 110.
Colin Evans: Thank you
ladka3: and what if non of that works and my Garmin is still asleep? Tomorrow I run
half marathon and the watch looks dead, damn it.
Alex García Rodríguez: Perfect!!!
Laurent Schneider: I just want to say thank you !
Jim Cyr: happy to hear that the video helped
cd27idw: For anyone with a 110 who has problems with long satellite synch times and
start/stop offsets (from the FAQ on Garmin's web site there are a few),
this solves that issue as well. Garmin's web site doesn't mention this,
just says live with it. These reset instructions are also listed under the
faq for the 610. Regards, Ian W
Jim Cyr: glad the video helped!
Redazione Pubblibaby: Wonderful it works!!!
Jim Cyr: glad the video helped!
Jim Cyr: I'm glad that the video helped!
Jim Cyr: If the device charged? Try again, but you may have to bring it back for an
exchange since it will be under warranty.
nicola ghesla: thank you! really useful!
nortexoid: actually this doesn't always work for me, so something else must be wrong
with my watch. Bah!
Jim Cyr: Thanks for watching!
nortexoid: Whoa, saved my watch I thought died!
Jim Cyr: awesome! glad it helped
tomin4tor: Thanks a bunch for that.
FernandoVerboJimenez: Thank you very much!
Erik Bouwhuis: Thanks!!!! LOVE U! You fixed it
Favourites6093: I've factory reset as you showed, but it still shows my memory as being
full? Any help on that please.
JobketeDelft: Thank you só much. I really did not know what to do.
gringoonspeed: Great.... thanks!
stve2: yeah thanks
Jim Cyr: interesting, but yeah if it's still under warranty, try to get another one.
Jim Cyr: I have not experienced what you described. That's very odd. If you can, I'd
try to upgrade the firmware.
Amber Harding: Are there any other ways to do this? The light button on my garmin
forerunner 110 has been broken for quite awhile and this morning after my
run my Garmin suddenly shut off and won't come back on. The battery was
fully charged so it's not because it's dead. Help!
nortexoid: Not under warranty anymore. But I emailed Garmin and they sent me some
instructions which worked. Here they are for anyone else. Performing a
master reset. 1. Press and hold the Light button, select yes to power off
watch. 2. Press and hold Start/Stop and Lap/Reset. 3. Once the two buttons
from step 2 are pressed in, press and hold Light. You're now pressing 3
buttons. 4. After first beep, release Start/Stop. 5. After second beep,
release Lap/Reset. 6. Release Light.
Jim Cyr: thanks for posting the details, this is the second time in the last week
that the procedure is a bit different from when I recorded the video using
the manual. Glad this worked for you.
kabalah70: Unfortunately, this did not work. No button press or combination works at
yakbutterfly1: A thousand thanks!
Jim Cyr: you can try to plug in the device via the USB and open up the "Garmin"
drive that will appear on your computer. Open that up and look for the GPX
folder and delete the contents.
payback88: good video, do you have any idea why it freezes on its own? I found it a
couple of mornings completely dead with the battery completely drained, and
just now i found it frozen (the time on it was about 10 minutes behind) and
it had the satellite icon on, as if it tried connecting on its own. Have
you experienced this at all? thanx
luke rappold: thanks it helped me alot
Jim Cyr: no problem, it always come up during the important stretch of training i
j dogg: oh man thank you so very much sir!
Jim Cyr: hey Amber - Hmmm I don't like the sounds of the button not working. if it's
under a year old, I'd try to go get it services via the warranty. There's
no other way to do the reset.
Jim Cyr: glad it helped!
Jim Cyr: Thanks for adding that detail, much appreciated!
