Question about Magellan RoadMate 2200T GPS Receiver
My less than 1 year old failed to turn on today 2/02/08. Worked yesterday. Kept DC plug in for car. This morning, would not turn on. Wrote Magellan for solution. Uggg!
I followed similar instructions, however I pulled the battery connector off the main board for a few minutes, reseated it, and she booted! back in business!! mine also about a year old, but after the firmware upgrade was a little flakey, time goes off sometimes, etc.

My 2200T developed similar problem and shut down and when attempting to start it, I received “low battery message”. After getting a run around from the manufacturer (out of warranty by a month), I decided to take a look myself. This does not men that I encourage just anyone to do this and if you break the unit more seriously I am not responsible. The process is as follows:
Unscrew the back panel (six screws), gently remove it (be careful of the speaker wires attached to the PC board). You do not have to remove the back panel any further than to get access to the power outlet (where you plug in the power supply). On the inside of the unit, on top of the outlet is a thin copper plate, it is likely that it was bend up with use and lost contact with the plug. Gently bend it inwards using a small screwdriver (be careful not to break it). That should do it. Your unit should be getting the power and battery should charge now.
