Meastro 4040 wont charge reliably


I had the same trouble exactly. The yellow power input socket has a pin and shield connection that must be contacting the center and side of the power input plug. I opened the Magellan and found that one side of the shield contact had never been soldered to the PC board. It was only a matter of time and use, before the piece moved up and away from the outer part of the power socket. A dot of solder solved the problem. The case for the Magellan is easily opened by removing four very small screws from the four corners of the black back and then prying the silver framed screen from the back exposing the printed circuit board. I am sure this completely voids the warranty with Magellan, but they will not repair out of warranty units anyway. Be aware there is a connector from the screen that is plugged into the circuit board. This is easily pulled apart with a pair of fine needle nose pliers and replaced the same way after the repair. The soldering should be done by someone with PC board assembly experiance.

I have the Magellan Maestro 4040. The yellow power connecter has come lose/off and is inside unit. I can't seem to figure out how to open unit


You have to use small screw drivers to open unit and re-align the yellow connector. Maku sure that when all screws are undone. Pry it open carefully not to misplace or misalign any other parts. If the connectore is really broken from the connector board, we need service technician to either solder it for you or replace some parts on the connectore board itself.

Problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection


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

Problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection


Hi,

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.
