Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver
I repair these everyday, so take that in to consideration while
evaluating my solutions...be careful what advice you follow on this web
site..just because someone claims to be an expert doesnt mean they are.
the title says 4040 but your post doesnt say what model you have, so if you have something other then what i have provided below, please let me know.
Ill assume you have either a 31XX, 4XXX model since those are the ones that are alittle harder to get apart then any other Magellan. Read below what I have replied to others with this question.
You have to be careful taking them apart or youll Break the power port and the head phone port right of the board And it will probably screw the board up. had a few were ppl tried to Take them apart the wrong way and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk)
Note: always start on the side opposite the power port
Anyway, after the screws are out, use your finger nail if you can,(that's what I use) if not get yourself a very small flat screw Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port (pictures below) and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom, Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seem and that its is separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics There are 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you put it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together.
IF YOUR GOING TO SOLDER ON THE BOARD, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR COVER IS OFF!
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
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.
