    MY GPS 2200T WORKED JUST FINE UNTIL THIS MORNING WHEN I TURNED IT ON, THE TOUCH SCREEN JUST DOESN'T RESPOND.  I THOUGHT THAT IT NEEDED TO BE CHARGED, SO I CHARGED IT, THEN I PRESSED THE RESET BUTTON, THEN WHEN I SELECTED THE NAVIGATOR TOUCH SCREED BUTTON, I DID NOT GET ANY RESPONSE.

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.

MY GARMIN STREETPILOT C310 WORKED THIS MORNING, BUT NOW WILL NOT SWITCH ON?


It is also 7+ years old. in technology years that is like 140 years old. retire it and get a Nuvi.

Remember that time you went to start your car and it worked yesterday but today it would not start... bad stuff happens.

If you are holding out hope, try leaving it plugged into the car or outlet
try holding the power button for a long time (30 sec)
try plugging it into a computer and see if anything happens.

TomTom Go730 worked great yesterday, is a brick today. Battery charged, reset per TT website instructions, nothing. Any suggestions?


not much to do with that unit, check with a volt meter to verify that power is present at the plug cord charging, if all your efforts fail and the unit is dead your trouble is in the unit itself, this unit is not serviceable by any one other than one with knowledge and equipment to repair this unit, check for warranty if not obtain a new one,,,?Sorry

Magellan 4040 won't turn on or charge.


This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

Unit will not turn on


Check for voltage at the end that plugs into the cradle. If no voltage there, check glass fuse inside end that plugs into car plug. If there is voltage at the cradle end and it still doesn't turn on then it's the cradle. The cradle fails over a short time inside the cradle plug. You can hard solder the cable end to the cradle circuit board, which is a delicate procedure which I have perfected but I am an electronics person. If you want to buy a new cradle it will fix your problem for turning on the gps but I recomend a cable tie on the cradle cable end to stop the strain on the connector so the new cradle connector will last a long time.

MAGELLAN GPS WILL NOT POWER UP


the folowing 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

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
