I have a Magellan Maestro 4040 That will no longer pingower on.

This device was working fine for about 3 weeks. Then it would no longer power on. I don't think it is charging properly or at all. I have tried to charge it with the car charger and with theht USB attachment to my computer and it will not power on or anything what could it be ?

I bought it from a friend and it was working but it seems like the conector for the car charger to the device is a very loose conection. Has anyone else had this problem

This is a very common problem with these magellan 3140 and also the 3100,2000,2200t,2500,4000,4040 and the 4050 most likely the power port is damaged and needs replaced.i have these power ports but often they just need re soldered..i can repair these magellan gps if you need help. if i cant fix it there is no charge.wmetz@comcast.net ... to open the case on a 4040 you must start on the power button side, otherwise youll break the unit

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.

Problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection


Wow if you opened the unit Magellan can tell. If your unit was under warranty You might have talked them into a repair (if your very very very persistent with you can get thin done , eventually ) but now you talk to them to see what they can do but it may be cheaper to go get another unit
