Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

My Mgellan 700 was working fine for many years.

Now it takes about 45 minutes to warm up. After that everything works fine until I power it off and again turn it on. Again I have to wait a long warm up time. The car temperature is about 70 Fh. Before I did not have any warm up time. How can I trouble shoot it?

Thanks for using Fixya 1st of all.

This problem has surfaced MANY times. It has been solved by numerous solutions. Without replacing the circuit board behind the keypad or the LCD I do NOT know a way to solve this. There never was a definite solution that remedies this. Possibly unplugging/replugging the ribbon cable from the LCD. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Let me know if anything changes.

I have a Panasonic LCD TV model TC-L42U30ygat does not display a picture on start up. As it warms up the picture appears but is in the lower half of the screen and is jerky. After 45 minutes the picture is...

My thoughts on this are that the T-con module has a problem. The T-con module controls what the LCD is displaying. It could be a bad solder connection where it eventually works. Here is my trick, (45 years in the TV business).
Remove the module, small board in the center of the TV. has two ribbon cables that attach to the screen and should be under a large heat sink. Preheat your oven to 390 degrees, I place the part on a pizza stone and heat in the oven for just 10 minutes and no more than 10 minutes. Remove and let the part cool for 45 minutes. Put back in the TV and test. Hopefully this works, if not order the board from I have had success with this procedure on numerous occasions.

You might try treating it like a computer...reboot. Disconnect the battery for 20 minutes and make sure the cell phone charger doesn't have a cell phone in it. Surprisingly enough, there was a guy years ago on the old site who couldn't reset the codes on an OBDI vehicle and later found a cell phone on the charger which was back feeding the ECM enough the codes wouldn't reset.


dont rate it until satisfied

Converter only works properly after it has been left on for about 20 minutes

In my years as an Electronic Technician I have had two simular situtions happen to me. Both were in TV's but the results was the same, they had to 'warm up'. Then they played fine until they cooled off. I finally discovered that in the power supply I had a ceramic resistor that should have been about 2 ohm had changed to Mega ohm and was not letting power through fast enough to start quickly. Once it got the caps built up it worked fine. The other was also in the PS and it was a large cap that was just slow to take a charge. Don't know that either of these fit your situation but that is the only two times I have experienced a problem of that nature

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)
