Question about GPS
Are you sure you need a battery? these model magellan are known for there bad power ports. they can be repaired, i even sell the power port and repair them for people that are not able to do it themselves but i dont think i can give you any contact info because it against fixya policies....you can keep reading to see how to remove the back of your 4000 to gain access to your battery.
to change the battery you have to be careful taking them apart or youllBreak the power port(if its not already broken) and the head phone port right off the board And it will probably screw the board up. i had few were ppl tried to Take them apart and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk) Anyway, after the screws are out, get yourself a very small flat screw(they make plastic tools for this) Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seam and that its separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics. There is 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you but it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together. I bet I made that as clear as mub. I'm not much of an instructor as you might of guessed by now. I do sell the ports for 12.00 if you need one...use a tester to check the port to the board, because sometimes they look good but there not contacting the board right or the pin could also be broken. Those ports are very cheesy, even if you fix it, those factory ports are doomed to fail Good Luck Lanny Bill Learn from your failures or you will fail to learn. Theory: you understand why it should work but it doesn't
Practice: it works but you have no idea how ALL That is necessary for the Triumph Of evil is That good men do nothing. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
