Question about Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS

1 Answer

My Magellan Maestro 4250 got a lot of small black dots on the screen spread out on the right and side. Then most of them moved so they are now clustered together in a small circle on the right side. Already contacted Magellan, but our unit is refurbished so they won't fix. It looks like the black dots might be floating between the screen layers. Is there a way for me to open the unit to try and see if I can clear some out on my own? One guy said it might be mold.

It seems to me that you may have some dead pixels on your screen and the only fix is a new or good used screen.
I purchased a unit off ebay that had software issues and now my unit works great.
Hope this helps you out

How do i open my magellan gps-maestro 4250-to get a broken screen out?


there are 4 screws hidden under the little black rubber plugs on the back of the unit...remove those 4 screws, then slip something small and flat (i use my finger nail) around the area where the back and front of the case meet...there are several snaps that hold it together that youll have to break loose to seperate the back and front....slowly seprate then and disconnect the screen ribbon from the main board...
the screen is only held in by little clips on the sides...just gently pull the case away from the screen in those areas and the screen will pop out

let me know if you need further help

Froze up then black screen


Make sure it is unplugged from external power, then remove the battery, wait 10 seconds and plug the battery back in.  I have had the same thing happen with my Garmin on rare occasions.

I have owned the Magellan Maestro 4250 for 6 months and the black cloudy spots just surfaced.  After talking to the Techs at Magellan (800) 707-9971, they advised me to send it into the factory for repairs.  Hopefully the one year warranty covers it.
