Why does my tom tom keep going the shut down page every 10 seconds I have pressed reset but makes no difference I ride bmw r1200rt


One possible cause is that your battery is low or the battery can no longer hold a (good) charge. In this case, the TomTom is shutting down because there's not enough battery to keep it running, even though it is plugged into a power source.

To determine if the battery is the cause, try to charge the TomTom battery .... using a (USB) connection to your computer, or a direct power source (i.e. while the TomTom is not being used). Let it charge for a few hours until the batter charge indicator shows that it is fully charged (or just leave it charging overnight).
Then, unplug the TomTom from the "charger" and power it up. If the TomTom (battery) doesn't hold a (good) charge, the device will shut down within a few minutes, e.g. 10 mins or much less.
When you (then) plug the device into a power source, and it doesn't stay on (i.e. it keeps shutting down after 10 seconds), you can safely conclude that the battery is the cause of your problem.

Monitor blank even though power is on


Totally shut down all power to the PC and remove any connected devices such as a mouse or external hard drive. SHUT DOWN by holding power button long enough to actually hear the PC shutdown.
It is a "fizzling" signal.
Also disconnect power sources that are plugged in. They are not shut down when they still have a power source.
Take a decent break.
Then one by one restore power to the charger, the PC, any other devices (including a printer).
Often this solves the problem. Good luck.

Device will not power on


I found a Magellan Roadmate in the dumpster when I was dumping the trash off my truck.They were even so kind to leave the charging cord.I figured out that the charging cord wasn't connecting to the unit when plugged in.It took 20 minutes to figure out how to pop the case open(retainer tabs on all sides in addition to the screws).Once opened up,it took 5 minutes to repair the solder connections from the power socket to he circuit board.Works like new!

It shuts down while driving


Does it shut down only while driving, is it connected to a power source at the time? Does it have the ability to charge and won't hold the charge?

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

Wants to shut down even when plugged in


this is a very common problem with these magellan 3140 and also the 3100,2000,2200t,2500,4000,4040 and the 4050 most likely the power port is damaged and needs replaced.i have these power ports but often they just need re soldered..i can repair these magellan gps if you need help. if i cant fix it there is no charge.wmetz@comcast.net ... to open the case on a 4040 you must start on the power button side, otherwise you'll break the unit

Odd shut down delay when power cord is attached


how about running defrag? do this by right clicking on your c:\ drive in my computer and selecting the tools tab. Then you will probably have to run scandisk first but this might help
