Plug the unit into the charger for several hours to see if it will take a good charge. Then follow this procedure I given before.

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.

I have a magellan 1440 and there is no reset button on the right side as stated. the screen that im stuck on is the magellan and little clock on screen. how do i fix it?


I don''t know if they changed the 1440 or not but the reset on mine is integral with the power switch.
Push it to the left to turn it on, or push it to the right to reset it. This is from the off position of course.

switch says:

ON OFF RESET

I have magellan 4350 i left it in my glove box and when I went to use it will not turn on. Tried Charging it still nothing not even a low battery signal Nothing


Sometime if left uncharged for a while the battery become too flat to be charged via the adapter, you will most likely have to get a replacement battery from Magellan

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.

I had turned it off last night and went to turn it on today and it will not turn on. i left it on the charger several hrs and it still will not turn on.


make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails


the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040 and the 4050 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats not able to do it themselves.

You can try a hard reset. Hold in the reset button (left side of unit, use a pin or toothpick), while turning on the unit. If you don't get the blue Magellan screen, you'll have to try again. If you get a screen with a blue background and a menu, turn it off and try again.
So far, this has fixed:
1. unit won't go on
2. unit reboots when routing
3. unit turns off after a few seconds

At least, it's fixed it for me. No idea why this happens, but it's pretty damn annoying. Give it a try.
