    did you charge it? If so, make sure you are pressing and holding the power button for 2-4 seconds. Mine takes a few secs before the screen lights up and the blue warning screen comes on.

The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Hello There, I have a Magellan myself, besides me knowing some things or two about GPS'S

Give this a try, seems to work for me and others most the time.

Try this for me to see if this works: Let me know. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, if does work, please click on the thumbs up to showed your a happy customer. Thanks Mike

I have had to reset my magellan maestro 5310, but now cannot get passed the system settings and system status pages. I think I have to download something to get it back up and running but not sure where to...

Hi tedmare1

you can download the 4.72 update for your 5310 HERE but follow the directions to the
letter or it will render it all the instructions aftrer downloading and before you
run the update.

make sure either the battery is fully charged, or you have it plugged in to the home charger
NOTE: the usb cord will not charge a magellan 5310, so you need to use the home charger or
fully charge it woth the car charger before starting...if the download is interupted for any reason,
the update will fail and the 5310 will not fully boot.

you might have to register your 5310 with the site before downloading (you used to ) but maybe not since they changed their site within the last few days.

let me know if you need more help or info

I want to change the battery in my Magellan Maestro 5310. Removed the four obvious screws but the unit will not come apart. Any tricks?

use your finger nail and press and slide it along the seem where the front and back meet..there are at least 2 snaps on each side of the gps...start opposite the power port side or you can break it off..let that side for last!

My 5310 goes to the "System Settings"

not sure how you tried the rest, but try turning the 5310 on and then hold the power button for 15 seconds, then start it again... if that fails, turn it on and press and hold the reset for 15 seconds.

if it works, try and update it again!

if neither of those work, its possible the digitizer (touch part of the screen) is out on it.

if its under warranty, send it back. this is a know problem with this model but most times it will reset and work fine.

Give me exact the the serial number of my GPS magellan maestro 5310. because, this is the mark of the back 0764200585919. And I cannot able to enter.

your exact serial number can be found inside the unit in the product information section..on the main screen, tap the menu tab, then scroll ove to the options tab, the system tab, then scroll to the next page..there should be a product info and diagnostic tab..your serial number will be listed in the product tab.

good luck
