Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver
It seems the (yellow) port for the car charger broke off and is now loose inside the unit. I can't plug my charger in, there fore the unit will not turn on anymore.
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
