There may be several reasons why the device does not move past the Magellan logo screen. Unfinished map/software update, corrupt file, or an issue with the device flash memory. Magellan supports several models by reloading the device software by sending you a link to wipe the device clean. Please contact them through chat at http://www.magellangps.com/support .

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: magellan explorist XL won't power up past a blue screen

Sounds like you got a bad update, you might be able to download an update from magellan, and put it on your sd card then load it that way to finish the update.

My magellan Roadmate 5220-LM powers on but will not go past the first screen. I have tried to use the reset button but it still will not work


Hello Liz, You may have two problems. If your unit is several years old, the battery may need to be replaced. First charge the battery overnight. To get the screen unfrozen , you need to remove the screws on the back, open the case, and unplug the white battery connection . Reconnect the battery connection after a few seconds. If this works, it is usually a temporary fix . Either your battery does not hold a charge or your charger connection is poor at best and can not deliver a full charge to the battery. It could be both.

Magellan 3250 won't update


Hi, I had the same problem with my 3200. Got the update, and it bricked my unit. After 3 weeks of searching the net for solutions, all of which did not work, I called Magellan Tech Support today. Simply told them that I was updating the maps, update failed, and now the unit will not boot past the blue magellan screen with the progress bar. They asked for some information, including the email address that you used to register the product, and the serial number of the unit, as well as the map update information...which you had to register to get the unlock code. They are able to see all of this c in their tests on the unit, which of course did not work. I was then given a RA#, and account #, and was assured that I would get a pre-paid shipping label via email within 24 hours. All you have to do is pack the unit and take it to fed-ex with the label. They will fix your unit with the updated maps, and return it to you via Fed-Ex. Took no longer than 15 minutes on the phone, which beats the 3 weeks of research that did not help. Problem solved. Just call Tech Support, this is a well-known problem, and they will fix your unit and update the map. Hope this helps.

Like a computer, it isn't "booting". Try phone support at Magellan.

I have the same issue. The device just powers up and shows the Magellan logo and does not continue past that.

New magellan maestro 4040 doesn't work


It depends. The way most Magellans work is that when you begin putting in addresses, the GPS looks for addresses that match it, and greys-out numbers and letters that don't match. If it stops on one address you're trying to put in, it's possible that the address is not in the memory.

Continual restarting when mapping


My Roadmade firmware is version 1.81. I had the same problem. I called them and they didn't help with anything. I went to Magellen's site and downloaded the firmware upgrader (which is 1.81), and reflashed my device with it (Yes, it's the same version as it was before). Perhaps a file was corrupted in my unit or something, because after updating my firmware (to the same version), it started to work.

Magellan 700 "freezing"


okyboky, Once you turn on your unit, the Magellan splash screen or animation is produced from the flash memory. To my experience anything past that is dependent on the hard drive. So, your unit is freezing up as soon as the user menu is displayed without any response to pressing keys or touch screen right? Have you tried (at the user menu) pressing "-" key and the repeat button (on top of unit) to enter the "secret" menu? if you can do that, then select reset user data. That seems to fix numerous problems. If you absolutely can't get past that screen, or get any type of sign of intelligence from it then your hard drive is either corrupt/damaged or you could just have a cable not secured. If the above doesn't work, and you don't plan on sending it in for repairs, then open it up and make sure the cable from the Hard drive to the main board (large board) are fastened. Of course, being grounded would be helpful in this situation and also be careful when you first open up the unit as the RF cable needs to be unplugged before seperating the two sides (front/back). Good luck and let me know how it turns out. -Daniel
