There should be enough friction from the plug and the cable to hold it in, look and see if the power receptical has fallen into the GPS or possibly some of the pins have fallen from the cord. But it sounds as if the receptical has broken.
Check the fuse on your power cord if it has one. Also try using a different power cord, perhaps one for use inside or use a USB cable if one was provided. Borrowing one or using one at an electronics store as a test may also help.
It sounds like the power cord you are using has stopped functioning and your battery is depleted and requiring a charge.
Do You use same usb port every time you connect it? Not all usb ports in computer are powered usb's. Usually only one or two of all. Also, have you tried another cable? one of lines inside may broke sometimes.
Sounds like a software problem. Insert the maps backup cd with your unit attatched to the computer by usb. An option of reinstalling original software will appear, click on this after 10 mins it should be back to how you first got it
this is a very common problem with these magellan 3140 and also the 3100,2000,2200t,2500,4000,4040 and the 4050
most 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 email@example.com ...
to open the case on a 4040 you must start on the power button side, otherwise youll break the unit
the power plug should go into the cradle first, before the device.. it sits just underneath in the plastic clip. once you slide the s-series unit down it clicks into the power cable aswell as the cradle and it sould all stay in place. It's designed so you can lift it up and out without unplugging the power.
If the USB port is loose, that means that the port has come of the circuit board. This happened to a friend of mines, his son did not look which way to orient the usb plug and used brute force.
It will need to go back to Garmin for repair unless you are or know of an excellent solderer as the conenctions are minute.
The case needs a TORX 6 screwdriver.
