I can try to help...

Did you try pluging it into your computer with the USB cable? What happens when you do this?

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

My garmin nuvi, which I purchased less than two months ago, no longer loads. It appears to start up with the introductory screen then goes blank. The charger is hooked up and is apparently working.


the battery is either to low or shot,

plug it in to either the home charger, car charger or usb for a few hours and try it again. once it starts, go in the gps main menu and see what the battery meter tells you (what does it look like, is the meter moving ect)

My magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on


make sure green light is on if using the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

I agree. I suggest you should go to a technician and try a new battery. If the new battery does not work you should speak to your manufacturer.
Thanks for using FixYa!
