Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Won't turn on

Pusing the on botton and the words Magellan came up but immediately went back to a blank screen. It did this a few times and now nothing will show. I plugged it into power and still nothing. Did the reset button and still only a blank screen.

    Mine does the same thing and even when it's plugged in it doesn't come on. It used to stay on for a minute when I tried to use it but now it won't even stay on at all.

    I have the same problem. I figured out how to get into what almost seems like a BIOS menu with a lot of different options, but none will help me recover it. Used it yesterday with no problem, but this morning wouldn't turn on.

I have a 4250 that every so often the message would come up like I unplugged it, the one asking for a yes or no to go to stand-by. Then it just wouldn't turn on, I plugged it into my computer and the car lighter but nothing. Since it is a refurb I opened it up to see if anything was obvious, There was, the solder points for the power switch were cracked and loose. Bad solder job at the factory. I re-flowed the solder with a cheap soldering iron I have and it powered right up. I will post how I did it at my web site when I get a chance.
