Hi,

Without knowing the exact make & model, a generic response would be:
1. try removing the power source. If it is a portable, remove the battery, if it is mounted, remove the fuse or battery cable/connector/power cord;
2. if it has a reset button, do a full reset;
3. if it has a removable/replaceable backup/memory battery (Lithium) remove temporarily;
4. if the battery/power source is rechargeable, try recharging for 16 hours.

Otherwise, would appreciate if you could post back with make & model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    In my Meridian, this problem was due to corroded battery terminals and the corrective solution was to clean by scraping with the use of sandpaper. Thereafter, every time I take out when fishing, I apply a light spray of WD40 to keep off the seawater.

I want to know how to open the device to change the battery


Possible that the battey is weak and so will charge up fast and show a full charge. It will be best to check with a swapped battery and if so the battery can be replaced.
Also cross check the adaptor.

I need to calibrate my Garmin Nuvi 1260T. It's been alittle off ever since I got it. I tried holding the power button for 30 seconds and waiting until the calibration screen pops up but nothing pops up. ...


In order to calibrate the screen on the Nuvi 1260T, you need to follow these few simple steps.

- Turn off the device
- Hold the upper-left corner of the screen while turning on the device
- Release the power button when the Garmin screen appears
- Continue to hold the upper-left corner of the touch screen for 30 seconds until a white screen with "Press dot" appears.

This should allow you to calibrate the screen. I hope this helps!

My screen is lock on a site 30 miles away. It finds the satellites and even caculates my speed but won't move off that spot


hi abzellar, one of two thing could be wrong with it.
if the menu button on the main screen says Esc instead of menu, then it is in the search/view map function. just press the esc button and it should go to the main map.

if not, then just reset it and let it in clear view of the open sky outside, this could take up to 30 minutes depending on the conditions but normally they (the satellites) will lock on within 5 minutes.

there are 2 ways to reset your 4040

  1. turn it on and then hold the power button for 15 seconds. after it turns off, hold the power button until it starts. let it sit outside as explained previously.
  2. start the gps and once its booted up, using a paper clip, insert it in the rest hole on the side and let it restart. let it sit outside as explained previously.
if you need further help, just ask.

Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up


I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

Keeps turning off


Your power cord is cutting in and out. You either have a bad power cord or there is something wrong with the connection to the cigarette lighter. When the unit say "Running on battery - will turn off in 30 seconds" this mean that it has lost external power. This is by design so that when you shut off the engine external power is cut to the unit and that it will shut down.

It a shame that for the C330 Garmin decided to remove the LED light from the power cord that shows the power cord is connected correctly to the cigarette lighter.
