Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Does not charge when plugged in. I bought new charger and it still does not stay on all the time. Is it possible the prong in the unit is bent and not connecting properly? If so, how can it be fixed?

The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 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 start..read below (magellan 3000.3050 and the 6000 take about 10-15 seconds to start from the off position)

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

Battery charging failed,battery charger adopter ok


2 most likely possibilities in my experience: Phone plug has been bent/damaged this has happened to us on 2 phones.(most likely an internal wire). It will require service.
or
2) Cable or wall plug transformer have been damaged and charge is minimal or cut off (happens if the progs get bent or the wire gets kinked or over flexed or pulled hard.
Test each component with a friend's / co-worker's unit that you know is working (or at the store) Replace components as necessary.

RCA tablet wont charge


Possible charger damage.
If you know someone with a charger you could use, you should first plug their charger into your unit to see if it works, if not, plug your charger into their unit.
If your unit will not charge with new charger, you may have serious damage, if the other will not charge with your charger, your charger is broken.

7" touch andoid tablet won't charge


It may be the charger has a loose wire. In that case a new charger would fix the problem. Mine has a problem with the charging port itself. I am fortunatly that my tablet is under warrenty they are going to replace the tablet for me.

Power issues with my sylvania 10 tablet


verify your charger is actually functioning properly. if it is, try to pop the battery out, and make sure none of the metal prongs where it connects are bent or touching. if they are fine, then you should leave the battery unplugged and turn it on, and see if it stays on with the battery removed.

How do I re-charge the unit?


I just bought one similar and wondered the same thing. on the unit you will find two male prongs recessed into the case. Simply plug and extension cord into them, the 12v charger is built in. Mine said to charge for 36 hours before fist use.

Phone will not charge


my voyager had the same problem i had to replace mine but you could try cleaning out the charging port and check if any prongs are bent or missing if the are bent you can bend them back, also this could be your charger check if the end is in good condition or needs to be cleaned you may need a new charger.
good luck-

Won't Charge! :-(


Hi. these situations are mostly caused by a bent or broken copper prong that is located within the input charger port that is inside the phone housing.

When you insert the charge cord into the input port, there are copper prongs that will have to connect to each other and , this contact point will transfer the necessary current to the cell for a proper charge.

If the prongs are damage in any way due to broken copper or, bent copper prongs, this will prevent the necessary current from flowing to the cell.

Most remedies are crude like using a tooth pick or paper clip to straighten out the prongs inside the port. these methods do more harm than good and i recommend sending this phone in for a input port transplant. the manufacture or local repair depot is the best repair solution for this situation.

There is one thing that i would do before sending it to the repair depot. try using a completely different battery cell. if you purchase a new battery and the charger continues to not charge, this will confirm the input port failure.

Please rate and god bless:)

Nintendo dslite wont turn on.tried charging it wit 3 different charges and it still wont charge


Ensure that you are properly recharging the battery.

1. Insert the small end of the adapter into the external extension connector (labeled "5.2V=IN") on the back of the Nintendo DS Lite, just next to the SLOT 1 Game Card opening.

2. Swing the prongs on the AC adapter until they lock into place, then insert it into a standard (120 volt) outlet.

The plug should be mounted vertically or on a floor outlet (such as a power strip).

3. Once the adapter is properly inserted, the unit will begin to charge (the orange charging light will display).

4. Once the DS Lite is fully charged, the orange charge light will go off.

Check the AC Adapter for damage (such as bent prongs or split wires). If you see damage to the AC Adapter, purchase a replacement from Nintendos Online Store.

Try plugging the AC Adapter into another wall outlet. Its possible the outlet is not working properly and has not been charging the Nintendo DS Lite.

If you are unable to get power to your Nintendo DS Lite, despite trying to properly recharge the unit, then your system will need to be repaired.

Nintendo offers convenient repairs, fast turnaround times and, for all systems repaired, a new one-year manufacturer's warranty.

Some chargers will 'fool' the satnav into thinking they're connected to a pc, my S90 was just the same. I bought a car charger on eBay that said in the description "These are purpose designed car chargers so that you can also continue to use your devise whist charging it will not go in to PC sync mode." I bought one of these and it now lets me use the satnav and charge at the same time, whereas my other car charger wouldn't let me.
