I have the Magellan 4250 and was also confused by this at first. However, you can see the unit charging. If you plug in the wall charger, turn on the unit and go to the User Options menu and select System Settings. You will see a green power indicator at the bottom of the page under the button options. When you are charging the unit, this will be pulsing. Once the unit is fully charged the green line will be solid and unmoving. It takes a long time to charge so you may have to be patient. I turn off the gps while it is sitting on this menu page and when you turn it back on you will be on the page and it is easy to see if the charging has completed.

There are no sounds or indications unless you go to this menu page. It does seem strange.

I felt the same way until I found the Pattry charging icon in the "system settings menue. Go to User Options and then choose the System settings. At the botto the menue is a battery icon with a number of boxes. If it is charging the boxes illuminat in a sequence. If it is un pluged the icon shows , by number of "boxes" the strength of the charge.

It usually needs to be left for a while until it start recharging, a few minutes or so. If this does not solve anything then it would be best for You to bring it back for servicing.

How do i fix a rand McNally tdk 500 gps that won't turn on


Hello,

Have you plugged the device in using the wall and\or vehicle charger? When plugged in does the charge indicator light come on? If the charge light does not come on the then device is not getting power. The USB port could have malfunctioned but it can be repaired.

If the charge light is coming on then the device should power on using the power button or by resetting it using the reset button on the back of the device.

My suggestion is to call Rand McNally technical support. An engineer can perform a more in depth diagnostics and provide a solution.

Red blinking light


Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
•With the Charger Plugged In
______________________________________________________________________
•Headset Indicator Headset Status
Red-----------------------------------------------Charging (battery level less than 50% charge)
Yellow-------------------------------------------Charging (battery level more than 50% charge)
Green--------------------------------------------Charging complete

Slow blue flash ---------------------------Standby (not on a call)
Slow red flash ----------------------------Idle (not connected to phone)
Slow purple pulse -----------------------Connected call muted
Steady red ---------------------------------Attempting to connect
Quick red flash ----------------------------Low battery

Note: After 20 minutes on a call or of inactivity, the light stops flashing to conserve power, but the headset remains on

Hope that'll help you in some way.

How long should i charge it


I have this same panel.

You may indeed plug the panel into the computer, and plug your USB powered device into the panel without issue. This will charge both the panel battery and the device at the same time.

Good luck!

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

  1. Verify that the OEM Charger and Battery are being used.
    • Only the AC charger, Car charger, or USB data cable that came with or was created for the device should be used; others can damage the device and/or battery.
  2. Is the device warm?
    • When using the device for prolonged periods of time, such as when you're talking on the phone, charging the battery or browsing the web, the device may become warm. In most cases, this condition is normal and therefore should not be interpreted as a problem with the device.The device has a protection feature that if the device becomes too warm (due to use of GPS while charging, BT while charging, using the device as a wireless modem, etc), the auto protection feature will be triggered and the charging process will be stopped. Once the device cools down, the device will then begin charging again.
  3. Check the USB Port on the device for any bent or misshapen PIN's.
    • If some are found, that is the most likely cause and this is considered physical damage not covered under the Warranty.
  4. Remove the battery and inspect the contacts.
    • Remove any debris/residue found on the device or battery contacts with a soft, dry cloth.
  5. Look closely at the battery contacts on the phone to see if they are bent out of shape.
    • If they are bent, the device will need to be exchanged.
  6. Try charging the device (try different power sources as well as chargers):
    • Plug in USB to device and PC; is the LED indicating that the device is charging?
      • Note: If the device isn't charging while connected via USB to a PC, go to Start>Settings>More>Power>Power Management and make sure that "When device is turned on, do not charge the device when connected to the PC" is set to OFF.
    • Plug in AC Charger to device and outlet; is the LED indicating that the device is charging?
      • LED indicators: Charging is indicated by a solid Amber light on the upper Left side of the face of the device.
        • Note: If the battery is completely dead, the light will be a solid RED for a few seconds while it is charging; once the device has enough power to turn on, the light will turn to Amber.
  7. Try another Power Source.
    • Try a different outlet to rule out that as the issue.
  8. Try another battery in the device.
    • If another battery doesn't work, perform a Hard Reset.
      • If the device powers up after Hard Reset, test the unit for a few days. If issue returns, device can be considered for an exchange.
      • If device shows charging with one (AC Charger or USB) and not the other, issue is with the accessory. Replace accessory.
      • If device will only power up when attached to charger (AC or USB) it is likely the battery needs to be replaced.
Device won't hold a Charge
The life of the battery between charging sessions will vary depending on which features of the unit are being used.
  1. Verify the you are using:
    • OEM AC Charger
    • OEM USB Data Cable
    • OEM Battery
  2. Fully charge the battery using the OEM AC Charger
    • USB and car chargers are trickle chargers meant to get the user through until they can get to their AC Charger.
  3. If the device is not lasting the advertised Talk time, with minimal use, try another OEM battery in the device.
  4. If the battery life still is not meeting the advertised Talk time (with minimal use), the device will need to be repair/replacement.
Device won't Power on
  1. Attempt to charge the device.
    • If the battery is dead, the device will need to charge for a few minutes and then should power on once this happens.
  2. Attempt to power the device on by pressing the Power Button for 3-5 seconds.
    • If the device doesn't power in, perform a Soft Reset using the stylus.
  3. If the device still doesn't power on, perform a Hard Reset.
  4. Try another battery.
  5. If the device still will not power on, it can then be considered for repair/replacement.
Handset Powers off

  1. Make sure that the device is actually powering off and not just going into hibernate mode by pressing the power button once.
    • If the screen comes back on, the device is not powering down.
  2. If possible, check the battery level by going to Start>Settings>More>Power>Power Management.
    • The charge should be no lower than 10%; if it is, charge the device and retest.
  3. Try another battery in the device.
    • If the device stays powered on with a different battery, the issue is with the accessory not the unit.
  4. If the device still powers off with another battery, Hard Reset the device and retest.
    • If the issue remains after the Hard Reset, the device it can then be considered for repair/replacement.

My phone only works when it's plugged into the charger


New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats. When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power adapter to charge the battery. • Turn off your device.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.
