Take the 4 screws out of the back (they are under the little black rubber plugs), then start on the side opposite the power port, then use your fingernail or something similar to split the case....bill

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 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

    Bill,
    Thank you. I had no idea how to open the case. I was able to resolder the port.

I want to change the battery in my Magellan Maestro 5310. Removed the four obvious screws but the unit will not come apart. Any tricks?


use your finger nail and press and slide it along the seem where the front and back meet..there are at least 2 snaps on each side of the gps...start opposite the power port side or you can break it off..let that side for last!

Loose part at the power input point.


it comes apart take out the 4 screws in the back. you'll need something to pry the back off .start on the side with something thin to unsnap the 2 halfs then use your fingers. after openning you'll need to resolder the powerport back on with a soldering iron and new solder. 4 spots hold the powerport on. it will be stronger than before. mine worked fine after.
