Question about Magellan eXplorist 100 GPS Receiver
WONT TURN ON ANYMORE. CHANGED BATTERIES - NOTHING TURNS ON - HELP!!! WORKED FINE ONE DAY AND THE NEXT IT JUST DID NOT TURN ON.
I just posted a problem and solution for this unit.
In short the connection goes bad between the upper battery contacts and the metal
spikes that go through the case and make contact with the main circuit board in the
front half of the unit.
I simply used a pocket flat screw driver to twist the battery spring so it would hopefully
"file" into the nail head.
If that doesn't fix it you may have to take the unit apart and bend the metal contact fingers up
so that they make better contact with the "nails" from the back half of the case.
I would also take a pocket knife and scrap the nails and the spring metal to improve the contact.
I just fixed mine 10 minutes ago....
