Power jack unattached and fell into case so can't plug in,. How do I open the case to reattach? Took out screws I could see but couldn't open case. If I can't recharge it I can't use it. Help.


Normal 0
this should help you....let me know if you need more help or info


Ill assume you have either a 31XX, 4XXX model since those are the ones that are alittle harder to get apart then any other Magellan. Read below what I have replied to others with this question.


You have to be careful taking them apart or youll Break the power port and the head phone port right of the board And it will probably screw the board up. had a few were ppl tried to Take them apart the wrong way and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk)

Note: always start on the side opposite the power port

Anyway, after the screws are out, use your finger nail if you can,(that's what I use) if not get yourself a very small flat screw Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port (pictures below) and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom, Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seem and that its is separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics There are 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you put it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together.

Tips to remove and replace the port

Magellan power port replacement for the following models
Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4010, 4040,
4050, 6000t and the 5310

On some models, you may find it easier to replace the port by totally removing the
Board and always disconnect the battery

Assuming that the power port is still intact and the tracers on the board are Good.

If you don’t have a rework station at your convenience, you can use a good Solder iron with a small tip.


DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR
COVER IS OFF!


1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
Can remove one side at a time. Break it at the top at the little tab!
Apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to tranfer the heat
Quicker to melt the old solder, because you don’t wont to apply more heat then
Is needed)
Remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder
Then do the same to the other side.
Apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
Terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.

The trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,

To install, make sure the centering pin is not broke off and still in the centering hole..if it is, use a paper clip or something to push it thru

Put a small amount of solder on each contact on the board then place
The new port on the board and apply heat it the tabs on the battery side while applying pressure so its flat against the board, then do the same with the other Contacts. If its not flush with the board apply pressure and reheat solder if your sure its in the centering hole

  1. 1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
    can remove one side at a time.
  2. apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to transfer the heat

  4. apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
    terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.



    the trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,
    because once they’re damaged its junk. (especially the rear contacts,) one is + the
    other is - the front contacts are also grounds.

Won't power


Unlikely. If the power is not getting to the main board, you can probably fix it. However, you won't be able to get parts for this unit, and there isn't really much that can be done to repair it once you hit the main board. However, if you trace the connectors that the batteries press against back, it's possible there's just a break somewhere. Open up the case and see if there's a break in continuity between the batter compartment and the main board. If there is, solder that together and you're set. If there isn't, you'll have to replace the unit.

My TOM TOM G920 battery doesnt hold charge for more than 5 minutes i think it needs a new battery I want to know how to replace the battery


QUick and dirty this is how it should go. Might be a little different so use some caution.
1- Remove the 4 screws from the outer corners of the gps unit. These are on the back in the corners.

2- Try sticking a small (JEWELERS/PRECISION) screw driver between the two halves of the case. There are small snap locks around the case, these are what you are trying to get to open up.

3- When you get the two halves seperated do not pull them apart. Look carefully inside you might see wires running to tha back half of the case, check on these and see where they go and what they are connected to. If you are lucky they are just speakers and they will have a quick connect on them.

4- Once you have the case seperated, the battery should be right there, remove the battery and install the new one. NOTE-- IMPORTANT sometimes you cannot get the right battery but you can get the same one but with a different end on it. IF YOU are CAREFULL you may be able to get the end off the original battery and put it on the new one.

Hope this helps you out and good luck.

Cannot get into tomtom one v3


After the screws are out, just put something (I used a fingernail, but you might want to use something like a butterknife or a thin bladed screwdriver) between the silver front casing and the black back casing at the top front corner. Then gently pry until it separates. Do the same thing for the other top corner and the case should just pull loose. Be careful not to stress the cables connecting the speaker and the battery by pulling the back casing more than a few inches from the front casing (the battery and the speaker are attached to the back casing). The battery is held in place with sticky tape. Just disconnect the cable and gently pry it free from the sticky tape.

Need battery for the Nextar GPS model x3-02


Actually, it's quite easy to replace:

i. Take off four screws at the back.
ii. Between the body and the front bezel, insert a utility knife. The bezel is fixed to the body with tabs. I started from the left hand side from front. The tab is in the center. Careful not to scratch the bezel or the body. Once one tab is open, you can slide the knife or whatever tool you're using to open the rest. Be careful not to scratch.
iii. Once the front bezel comes off, you'll see that the touchscreen is held to the bezel with the help of four tabs. take the touchscreen off.
iv. Next, take the ribbon cable off from behind the screen. You'll have to flip the flap holding the cable open.
v. The screen is held to the main board with the help of a tape. Don't take it off. Take off three smaller screws which fasten the circuit board to the back body.
vi. Take the antenna off. It's quite easy. It's the same connector that is used for Blue-tooth or wireless antenna on laptops. It'll just flip off.
vii. Next, take the board off from the back plastic body. The circuit board will still be held to the back by two connectors, one (two wire, smaller one) connecting the circuit board to the speaker, and another (larger one, four wires) connecting it to the battery. Both the battery and the speaker are for now fixed to the back plastic body.
viii. Once you've done that, the battery is exposed. Take the battery off (held by two tapes, and some double sided sticky tape to the back body).

The battery is 35mmx55mmx5mm. Buy any 3.7v battery from ebay. That'll cost you about $10, including shipping. The only problem is that on ebay, you might not be able to buy the same connector. Most of the batteries that you get from there also have protection circuitry to protect against overcharging etc. So you'll only have to replace the connectory. For this, take apart the battery from top. Just peel off the green tape. That will expost the connections. Solder them off, and replace the entire chord on the new battery.

Sorry, I'm too depressed right now on account of loosing my job :-) Otherwise, I'd have included pics too. But I guess if you're not afraid to do DIY projects, you should be able to change the battery yourself. Quite easy.

Battery Replacement


Hi, Hope this helps. 1st, take the screen off by putting a sharp edged tool like a knife in the slight gap and pull off gently. 2nd, with rim off, you will see 4 holes around the screen with 4 torx screws size ""6"" take the 4 screws out, be gentle not to round them off you can then pull the screen off by just lifting separating it fro the dome back . 3rd with screen face down you will see the speaker held by two screws take these out then lift the speaker gently to the side.. 4th this is the tricky bit, gently pull the silver casing and foil gently not off - but temporarily sort of hanging, 5th with the screen still face down turn it gently so the the part where the reser hole and dock connection faces you, if you have taken the foil off you will see two holes one at each end at the very bottom take the right hand screw out and pull casing to you so you can pull battery out of holder and unplug the very small plug and you can put new battery in.. lastly gently wrap the casing and foil back to its position.. then the rest speaker - dome back - and screen rim.. just to add its like a bake bean tin casing really shodily made not worth half the price.. hope this helps its easy enough. lastly was your green light on but no power up possible as mine was, i changed battery and it is still the same with new battery.. Rob let me know what happens

Batteries leaked acid. How do I crack open to clean?


Just pry it open (gently) with a flat bladed screwdriver. It's glued together with silicone seal. To put mine back together, I scrapped thoroughly to get the old stuff off, crazyglued the corners, then later filled the gap with silicone sealer. Easy.

My garmin zumo will not turn on.


Have you also held the power on button for a couple of minutes, with the battery installed, and without the battery installed. There is an issue with the garmin dying, some cases a new battery helps, other cases, just leave the battery to charge for several hours, worst case is that you have to ship it to Garmin. I had a couple of Dead Zumo, however, removing the battery for several minutes, putting it back and clipping the zumo in the car holder did the trick for me. I also have a spare battery and allen wrench, just in case...

Navman Pin570 battery replacement


There are 2 little black tabs at the botton of the back that you have to remove, behind these there are 2 screws u remove, and flip the ariel up and there are 2 screws under there you remove also.

The body is clicked together use a guitar pick, ur fingernails or small scewdriver to seperate the 2 sections.

Inside you will see a few screws holding the systemboard down, if need unscrew them.

you will see the battery its stuck onto the system board... be carefull seperating it,.. use a flat intrument or a butter knife to work it of the board ( its stuck on with double-sided tape or some kind of silicon)..

unplug it,

plug your new battery in.. BONGO


Let me know how you go.

cheers
plato


Put it all back together again
