With the 4040 plugged in to the charger, wiggle the cord to different positions and see if it loses contact (stops charging)

this model has a very common problem with the power port failing..iif it loses contact by testing it in the manner i suggested, it will require either a new one install or at the very least, resoldered,

let me know what you find and ill help you further.

I have not used my Magellan Maestro 4040 in quite some time and I charged it today for 4 and 1/2 hours and can not get it to turn on.


Hi davidhcaldwe

the following 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

Magellan maestro 4000, 4040, 4050 vs mio c220,c230,


Don't buy a Magellan. There is little to no support, and their web based support redirects to no where useful for upgrades. I'd sell you my 4040, but can't in good conscience sell it to anyone.
