Question about Magellan Meridian Platinum GPS Receiver
My new meridian fails to turn on anymore. Even with new batteries. It has not been misused dropped or anything. After giving a signal that the batteries were low it stopped working and just will not start up again no matter what.
I have the same problem. As with the other postings the car adapter did work. The metal arm that touches the integrated circuit board needed cleaning.. Unfortunately the metal here is very thin and cleaning it has rubbed it through. I am going to try soldering it next. Poor design really.

I had my meridian platinum do exactly this.
First test on car adaptor if you have one, if this works the batteries are not making connection properly.
I took the six mounting screws out and opened the back, I cleaned the battery connectors up with an alcohol wipe, a pencil eraser is also good for this. Then I bent the battery connectors up ever so slightly on the battery holder side. Reassembled unit, do not over tighten screws. Problem solved.

Well you posted this a long time ago but I also have had this problem and I think i found the solution. Open the battery cover and then tighten the screws that hold the unit together (not to tight). This has worked for me and I think it may be a common problem with these screws loosening.
