Yes, you can try the reset but before you try that..plug it in to a known good charger (like the car charger has a green light to tell you its working)

once plugged in, press and hold the power button for upto ten seconds...if that fails, try the reset on the left side under the flap...depending when your 2200 was made, it will either be a pin hole where you can use a paper clip to reset it, or if its an early model 2200 it will have a slide switch that should be toward the down position..to reset turn unit on, then either slide the switch up, wait a second or two..then back to the down position then try and restart it...if its the pinhole, just depress the reset with a paper clip, then try and restart it by pressing and holding the power button for up to ten seconds.

these 2200t are also known to have faulty power ports that i can help you with should the above advice fails.

let me know if you need further help

    Sitting here, my 2200T just powered up randomly. Then down again. What's the deal?

    hi Richy_T

    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

I have a Magellan Road Mate 5220-LM and it was working yesterday. When I got back to my house. I noticed it was flickering off and on. What should I do?


Hello

First of all try a hard reset

Slide and hold the power switch for more than 8 seconds.

If your device is connected to a rear view camera i suggest you disconnect and reconnect it.

How do you reset a magellan roadmate 1220?


As a general rule, for Magellan RoadMate models the RESET BUTTON is on the right side inside a small hole; the use of a pointed object (tip of a pencil, a ball-pen, etc.) is required to apply pressure on this button in order to perform the RESETTING PROCEDURE.
You may also can try to hold down the POWER BUTTON for 10 seconds to power off the device; then repeat the same procedure (holding down the POWER BUTTON) for other 10 seconds to power on Magellan RoadMate.

Magellan Roadmate 2036-mu will not find satellite signal at all. It straight out of the box. tried having it in clear view of the sky, and still nothing. Any suggestions?


With the GPS turned ON; slide the power switch to turn it OFF and continue to hold it for another 20+ secs. Release the switch and restart the GPS. It should try to locate the satellites, if it still is not able to find after reset then this could be a hardware problem with the GPS.
