Not sure if this will help with Magellan, but my Mio would not start after I discharged the battery.
I had to recharge and then hold down the on button for 30 seconds to reboot it and then the screen came on.

    thanks for the help. I plugged it up and pressed the button, held it and pressed it some more and it came on. Then I had a hard time getting it to turn back off. Sounds like something happemed to the button doesnt it.

    if it has screws holding the back cover on, you can carefully remove the cover and see if you can see what's causing the button to stick or bind.

How turn on Megellan GPS device

If it doesn't turn on with the normal on/off button, there is also a reset slide button on the side(sometimes under a rubber cover), slide it off and then back. Should reset and on/off switch will work.

Check the condition of the battery of your Megellan GPS. Most Megellan GPS batteries will last not more that 40 minutes of continous use after full recharge. Ig battery power is found OK, the firmware of your GPS has the trouble. You ahve to contact nearest Megellan GPS authorised service center to set it right. OK.

Let it dry completely without the battery and it may come back to life. If a red mark appears on the cell then it is ruined and will have to be replaced.

When I turn my Megellan Maestro it says FAILED TO WRITE TOC

Yes, there is a reset button. It is on the side. Look for the word "reset". You may need a magnifying glass.
