My Magellan Maestro 3100 also had the same charge/power problem. After long non-use, I sometime had to charge it for an hour or so before it kicks-on. After having it for more than 7-8 months, I think my unit will not hold a charge. If you follow the owners manual and also try Magellan's website suggestion: http://www.magellangps.com/support/askmaggie.asp , you may want to ask for an RMA for return. I am hoping that it's just the battery. Since I am new to the greater DC area, I had to buy another GPS, while I wait Magellan's repair. In the meantime, I am trying a GARMIN. If Magellan can fix it, at least our family has a backup.

After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.
If you left your Garmin c330 on running
the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it
will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this
point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the
power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin
gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and
under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off.
Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET"
button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery
should come back to life. Cheers
Try holding the power slide to the left and holding it there for 8
seconds. If that doesn't work, try charging it via your PC & USB
cable. If that doesn't work, try a mains charger if you have one (I had
to do this with mine). Good luck!
I understand the problem in the unit so to turn on the unit the so please follow the below steps.
-> At the left hand site you can see a small pin hole named as (reset) just inseret a paper clip into the hole and gently push it in side then
