Question about Magellan GPS 315 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan 315 On power up, the screens prompts you to press enter to continue. However, pressing the keypad produces no response. Unit becomes locked. Tried the complete reset (pressing on screen awhile holdoing down on the power button???) no results.Batteries have to be removed to turn power off. After several attempts it may operate properly. Anyone know what is going on and how to fix this.

That unit does not have a touch screen so holding the screen while powering up wont do anything. I'm not sure which key it is on that model, but to do a reset you hold down one of the keys while powering up. Try holding down the enter key while you power up. If that doesn't work, try again with the other keys until you find it. If it doesn't reset, you may have a dead keypad.

Error3-315 when machine on error come in most times


3-315 Fault Code indicates that a communication failure

between the IOT PWB and the Post IPS PWB was

detected.


You may be able to enter diagnostic mode and reset:

Entering Diagnostic Mode: First of all... to enter the User Interface (UI) Diagnostic Mode: Turn on the power... then while holding down the '0' button, press 'Start'. The screen will prompt you for an "Access Number"... use the keypad to enter '6789' which is the Default Access Number. This should bring you to a menu of options to choose from:

NVM Reset (Non Volatile Memory) / NVM Initialization

NVM Read / Write (memory adjustments)

Component Control (for testing sensors, motors, etc.)

Print (for running Test Patterns from Diagnostics)

Subsystem Check (for fuser nip measurement check out, and developer unit check out)

Max Setup (for setting up copy quality)


If reset does not work, you need service on the unit.

Magellan 315 frozen


Occasionally, a unit will need to be reset. This can be due to software errors, firmware updates or simply at the command of technical support staff. A reset either will restart the unit, possibly clearing up any minor errors, or will restore the unit to the settings it was built with. There are three major Magellan units, which utilize different methods to perform this task.

Things You'll Need:
  • A thin object (such as a paper clip)

Using the stylus, tap "Main Menu" and select "View."
Tap "Settings," and select "Restore Factory Settings." You will be given the option to confirm this action. Be sure that you want to reset to the settings that the GPS was built with. This action is irreversible.
Tap "Confirm," and the unit will begin to reset.

Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units
Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.


Tips & Warnings
  • Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

My eXplorist XL is locked up


Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.
"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...

Either FORMAT or SCAN... LET IT RUN!

After turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. Your system will immediately start to re-set itself.

If necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps..."

The only difference is that I had to load my SD card in the unit for it to work during the FORMAT.

My unit is NOW re-booting back to normal!

Sears Craftsman Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model and a LiftMaster Chamberlain Professional Garage Door


Hello,

I had the same frustrating dilemma with my Craftsman LiftMaster garage door and Keypad, Model 139.53754-01 (dated 10/06; and has the # 315 MHz).

To resolve “the dilemma”, grab your keypad, climb up on a ladder to access the garage door opener’s motor unit. On the right side of the motor unit, remove the white plastic casing by pressing buttons on each side and pulling down. This will expose the programming area, and for our purposes, the “Learn” button.

1. On the motor unit, press and release the “Learn” button. The Learn indicator light will glow steadily for 30 seconds.

2. Within 30 seconds, enter a four digit personal identification number (PIN) of your choice on the keypad. Then press and hold the ENTER button.

3. Release the ENTER button when the motor unit lights blink. The code has been “learned”/stored/activated.

Good Luck, and I Hope this Helps!
Gail
For possible future reference:

How to change an existing, known PIN
(Changing an existing PIN can be done with the wireless remote keypad, and does not require access of the motor unit.)

From the keypad:

1. Enter the four digits of the present PIN, then press and hold the # button. The opener light will blink twice. Release the # button.

2. Enter your new 4-digit PIN and press Enter. The motor unit lights will blink once when the PIN has been “learned”/stored/activated. Test by entering the new PIN, and pressing Enter.

"NO POS"


Have you gone through the "Initialize" process again? If the memory has been cleared you will need to re-initialize. Refer to page 4 of your manual. Power On > Select Language > "ENTER" > INITIALIZE screen > "ENTER" > Select Region > "ENTER" > Select Area > "ENTER" > Enter Elevation > "ENTER" (if you don't know elevation, press enter) > Enter Time > "ENTER" > Enter Date > "ENTER"

Magellan 700 "freezing"


okyboky, Once you turn on your unit, the Magellan splash screen or animation is produced from the flash memory. To my experience anything past that is dependent on the hard drive. So, your unit is freezing up as soon as the user menu is displayed without any response to pressing keys or touch screen right? Have you tried (at the user menu) pressing "-" key and the repeat button (on top of unit) to enter the "secret" menu? if you can do that, then select reset user data. That seems to fix numerous problems. If you absolutely can't get past that screen, or get any type of sign of intelligence from it then your hard drive is either corrupt/damaged or you could just have a cable not secured. If the above doesn't work, and you don't plan on sending it in for repairs, then open it up and make sure the cable from the Hard drive to the main board (large board) are fastened. Of course, being grounded would be helpful in this situation and also be careful when you first open up the unit as the RF cable needs to be unplugged before seperating the two sides (front/back). Good luck and let me know how it turns out. -Daniel

Frozen screen when turned on


Kevin, Hmm... it worked fine the first two times you ran it, then all of a sudden it freezes at the user screen?? I'm not sure if your able to do this, but at the user menu, try pressing the (-)zoom out key and the repeat button a the same time. -If it does bring up the "secret" menu, try clearing user data. -If you have a program that allows you to update the software, version 4.32 I'm guessing (or 5.14) then at that "secret" menu select NAND Flash Format and re-load the software. If you can't access the "secret" menu and it locks up hard at the user menu w/out any responsiveness, I would suspect the hard drive is either bad or has corrupt data. I'm not sure if you can order just the hard drive from magellan/thales/tomtom/shaw but if you can then just replace the hard drive, nand flash format (above) and re-install your software via usb. Additionally, not that it helps your problem, but atleast you would know the pwr and keypad work if this works, press Enter, Cancel and power button at the same time, as this SHOULD power off your unit. Let me know if any new symptoms/problems come up or if you need further instructions. -Daniel
