Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver
Yellow piece inside unit which the powercord plug is broken off. I opened the unit and I did not break any connections. So can I just just solder the yellow piece where the power cord plug into The same thing happened to my 4040 yesterday. The jack in side of unit pushed inside, can no longer plug it in. Yellow connector inside the unit is broken. Unable to open unit.
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

I also have the same problem - the yellow power jack has broken connections. I fixed it by soldering it back. In my unit, the connection pads under the external power jack were intact and I was able to solder the jack easily. The audio out jack nearby has also come-off the PC board, along with the pads. I am not able to re-solder these back. Since the audio jack is part of the speaker circuit I have lost the text-to-speech function!
Hope you are able to fix yours.

this is a very common problem with these magellan 3140 and als the 3100,2000,2200t,2500,4000,4040 and the 4050most 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 firstname.lastname@example.org ...to open the case on a 4040 you must start on the power button side, otherwise youll break the unit
