On the bottom of the unit there is a reset button. The button is recessed, so you have to use a the tip of a ball point pin or something similar to reset. Mine did the same thing and that fixed it.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen

if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)

if you need further help, just reply to this post.
