Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Freezing up My Nav is less than a year old, it has started freezing up within a minute of being turned on, at the longest. Sometimes it will immediately go to a blue/black screen of death, sometimes I get all the way to putting in a route, then it freezes solid, can't even turn it off without unplugging it. Any suggestions? Any way to fix this? All I've heard is negative, that I'll probably need to replace the unit. I've only checked the connections, unplugged and replugged, I don't know what else to try. Thanks.

    Same problem. The roadmate 760 "freezes up" a few second after turning it on.

Had the same the month before warranty expired. My personal opinion is that HDD got bad sectors. Sent to local repair representative. He just reformated drive and reinstalled software.
No wonder that another 11 months later it ran into exactly the same issue.
I'd buy new HDD but there is no way to re-install OS on it.
I'm surprised that no one has done that.

Loads the beginning (intro) of games, then freezes... I've only played maybe 70 hours on it and it's less than a year old.


If this freezing is consistent across all games you are having a heat issue. Since your unit is less than a year old go to www.xbox.com/support and request a repair.

Ice Cream not freezing


Yes, they stop working sometimes. Same thing happened to me.
The Cuisinart ICE-20 bowl is precisely the same, and works with the Krups 337. You can buy the Cuisinart bowl separately. It costs nearly as much as the whole machine, but what can you do.

Sounds like a bad digital board to me. Not too hard to replace in those models but, you do have to write down a few settings before replacing it. These settings are available in the service menu. Any questions let me know tvtek@msn.com

Refridgerator freezing food


dm, I'm not sure if the thermostat is mechanical or electronic. Assuming mechanical...and I do...turn it to the lowest number...does it turn off? If this works properly, the problem is likely not the control. Does the compressor turn off at any time? If not after an hour or so of operation, the stat could be defective. That's my first guess. Oh, have you made sure that you don't have the ducts in the freezer blocked? The would deflect too much cold air to the fridge section.

Next, defrost the unit and clean the condenser coils. This will help the unit work properly. Then, wait awhile with the unit off. Meanwhile, access the compressor in the rear of the unit. Find the largest pipe coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. The largest pipe should frost and then, in about 5 minutes or so...either cause condensation or dry out. If neither happens and the line is either not COLD to the touch or frosty, you're low on gas. If the unit is less than 5 years old, you may get warranty coverage on the sealed unit from the mfgr. Believe it or not, too little gas will cause freezing in some cases!
