Hi watchdog9

The cheapest replacement screen would be on e-bay.

As for the replacement of the screen. Take out all the small screws at the back and open up the unit - the screen will be attached with another four small screws on the inside and also two small cables.

Unscrew and replace.

    Oh yes , forgot to mention - if you haven't done this before , rather don't give it a go ! Save yourself alot of headaches and purchase a new one if the scrathes on the screen bother you too much.

As IB has already said spare parts are hard to find for these devices.

According to my sources its cheaper to buy a new one agains geting it repaired by the company, and shipping + handing on top of that. I beleave you can get a new one for around 150. the repairs might cost up to 300(S&H, parts and work).

if you want todo it yourself.. contact the company for a replacement part. Also ask for a service manual if your going todo it yourself.

I would suggest to contact the manufacturers for that screen. Service parts are not easy to find or they might not even exist. Today's electronics devices are made disposables.

Wow..that's going to take some serious work. micro electronics at it's highest level..this thing under warranty, by chance?

those are usually handled direct, by the way. spare parts are hard to find at this juncture.

I have had the Magellan Mastro laying on my desk for about a month without being charged. When I now pluged in the charger nothing happens. The screen stays dark.


Try doing a master reset on the unit. It should have a hole marked "Reset". Use a blunt toothpick or end of large paperclip, pressing in on the small button inside for about 10 seconds. It should come back to life. You may see a flash of text on the screen. If so, release the button. It would probably be best to leave power hooked up while doing this, in case the battery has not taken a good charge. Thanks, Bill.

My Magellan Maestro 3210 constantly says low battery while on trip and shutoff, I have it plugged into the astray why would the battery be low, how do I get it off battery power setting, or why is it doing...


Usually when you see low battery like that it means the battery itself needs to be replaced at it can't hold a charge or enough of a charge to be usefull. If you unit is over 18-24 months old then th e battery is most likely the problem. This will happen even if you have always used external power as the battery doesn;t get properlly cycled enough.

It is possible that it is the power source you are using is too low but sounds more like the battery is the problem.

If you have warrenty the battery should be replaced by Magellan. If not a replacement battery is about $30 and is something you may be able to do. You need to remove the back cover and unplug the old battery and plug in the new one and put it all back together.

Here is one link for a battery but there are other just search for Maestro 3210 battery with google or bing and you should find a few places that offer them.

My magellan mastro gps touch screen will not respond. less than 4 months old. magellan wants me to send the unit back to be replaced by a refurbed unit with a 3 month warranty. i would like to know how can...


turn it on, make sure the battery has a good charge on it, then locate the reset hole on the left side near the bottom and use a paper clip to depress the switch...youll know its reset if the unit goes off and reboots....if that fail, it needs a digitizer (the part that lets you navigate your magellan) its the upper layer over the touch screen.

i buy broken magellans off ebay if i need a digitizer or screen..normally for under 20.00

When the unit is off, can you see a line where the screen is possibly cracked? look close. If you can your LCD is busted and it needs to be replaced. Is the sound working fine? Will respond after answers.
