Plug it in to a know good charger..(the car charger has a light on it to tell you its working)

press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds...if that fails, i suspect the power port is defective as this is a very common problem with this model.

if someone here tells you to just replace the battery, i wouldnt waste my money till you verify what the problem is....i fix this all the time (daily) and i do not nor do i have to google my solutions.

good luck, let me know what you find.

hi elizalde_cl

start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

let me know if you need more help or info

My Magellan Maestro 31100 won't power on


You could have a defective power connection in your Magellan Maestro 3100 which will not allow you to charge the internal battery or power on your unit.
You may try to contact Magellangps.com or Autonav2000.com to see if they can provide you with repair service.
Might be cheaper to purhcase another Magellan Maestro than spend the money on repairs.
Good Luck

Magellan maestro 3100 will not hold a charge


this is very common problem with this and many model 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, 4000, 4040, 4050 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 get it repaired, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

You probably just need to reset it.
Magellan Maestro models- the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.
You may need to update your firmware. Go to this site
http://www.magellangps.com/support/
select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section.

This should solve the problem. Good luck. If this helps, plz rate it fixa. Thank you kindly.

Hold the power button down and hold it about 10 seconds and it should re-boot it. It happens to my husband all the time.
