    My Navman 5500 will not turn on, any ideas besides it has a hardware problems? I already knew it had problems and would not turn on when I asked for help. What about the internal battery does anybody know anything about it and could that be the problem? How do you remove and replace it and where can you find a replacement?

    What charger contacts are you talking about? Also the Antena is built in the case. Do you know where I can mail this in order to get fixed?

    Thanks

When the problem is the internal battery the Navman turns on if you connect it to the charger.

If you are telling that it does not turn at all, even if connected to charger then it is not the battery.

You need to grab a Multimeter , set it on volts and check if there is 12V (allow +_0.5V) power on charger contacts.

Try pointing a torchlight near to the screen , and check if there is a dim picture, in that case the back light inverter had gone.

Try also disconnecting antenna. A short in there will cause the Nav not starting.

If there is power , then a common fault that give you no power at all is caused by broken contacts on Navman charger socket.

Instructions on disassembling are difficult to find, service manual for this unit is not available.

I think you have to remove SD card, undo screws at the back, take care of volume control and keys, and operate at top and bottom to separate the to halves of the casing.
There is risk to do more damage, for example to volume control, when undoing the casing.

First plug it in and then hold down the power button until it turns on. (It should turn on within 20 seconds). If it doesn't, then it sounds like a hardware failure and you should check what you have for a warranty. If you can return it to a store, then do so, otherwise contact the manufacturer about it. I'm sorry that I can't be more help, but the reset only works if the unit will turn on. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Again like I said, since it won't even turn on, then it must be a hardware fault and requires service that only a qualified electronics repair man can provide. Sorry about that, but there isn't much else you can do.

Try to reset..
Hold down the middle button while presing the reset.. keep holding till you see the initial screen...

    You
    just have to switch OFF the navman with the button of the battery. Be
    careful, not with the "stand-by button" ON the navman but with the
    switch under the navman, near from the reset.

I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

Navman 5500 gps backlight dim but set to max


Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.
