Magellen Roadmate 2000: Does not power up

Hi
My GPS suddenly stopped working. Its not powering up. I guess its a battery problem. But i want to confirm that before I buy a new battery. Have any of you faced the same problem. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
G

    and if you plug it into an external source and it does not power up i don't think it is the battery.

The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Magellen 2036 auto off


the receptacle where you plug the power supply is probably broken away from the circuit board inside. it is poorly designed and will fail
it can be soldered back on if you can get inside.check to make sure your power adapter has power coming out of it.

How do I change the battery in a magellan roadmate 2000 gps


remove the the four screws from the back cover and the back will come off exposing the battery.

careful while removing the cover, the speaker wire is connected to it but you can change the battery with it connected.

chance are its not the battery!


make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040 and the 4050 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats not able to do it themselves.

you can get it repaired, or the part here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know

Magellan 2000 doesn't power up


try replacing the battery. ususally if the battery is dead it will freeze or not turn on. if this doesn't work magellan will replace it with a new one at a very reasonable price. I just replaced a magellan 800 with a magellan 3210 for $132.00. your may get a better deal. call magellan
if you have an a/c 110 volt to 5 volt converter for the magellan, try charging it in the house with that one rather than the car charger.

MAGELLEN ROADMATE 700 NO POWER


One of the wires in your power cord could be broken. If you have the a/c adapter, see if you can power up with that. If you know someone else with a working Magellan, you could borrow his cord to test your unit.

If not, check the car adapter with a continuity tester. Put one tester probe on one of the side springs of the car plug and the other probe on the outside metal of the GPS plug. If that shows continuity, place one tester probe on the end tip of the car plug and the other inside the the GPS plug.

If either of those do not show continuity, first take apart the auto side of the cord. Check the fuse and the wire to contact solder joints. If they seem okay, carefully cut back the molded plastic from the GPS end and examine the wire to solder joints. If any are broken, replace the cord or resolder the joints.
