It worked good before but today. when i turn on the screen it shows the magellan logo and some picture right after. three icons are in the picture. one is laptop(left), the other is gps(?)-it shows X on its screen(right) and in the middle there is some fork shaped(?) icon. And these three icons are connected each other with many dots. i was trying to restart the gps and reset it but it showed same thing again and again. i have no idea what that is. PLEASE HELP!!!

You didn't said the exact brand and model of your gps so i can' be more precise - your unit is locked, the firmware has crashed (that's like a BSOD on a pc).
The only thing that can be done to fix it is to update its firmware: go to the site of the manufacturer, support section, find your unit, find the firmware updater and download it (as in Save, not Run), take out the SD card from your unit, conect the unit with the USB cable to the pc and run the updater.
If even this doesn't fix it then the processor of the gps has been damaged and this is why the firmware crashed. This is unfixable, time for a new gps.

Hello.
This screen appears when you connect the GPS to a PC. If it is connected, then disconnect it and restart it. If it's not connected, then this is a hardware malfunction and needs to be checked by a professional.

Those are the connection logo s..the laptop is for the laptop ..the fork is the usb symbol ..and so on ..
see if any media it is plugged into it ..and remove it ..and restart it ..if this isnt the case ..than for some reason it was deleted completely and you need to connect it to a computer (this is why the connection logo is shown) ..and reinstall the firmware updates..
Those should be available on the support site of teh manufactirer..and the instruction also ..in how to do it ..I know for sure that for garmin devices they have a software that have to be downloaded into computer ..and that software downloads and installs the firmware updates automatically ...so if you have another model look for the same thing ...cause they make this things almost similar in use..

    this was the best I could do with the info provided...you never even told me the make of the device ..I'm not in the position to advice you more without knowing what I'm talking about ..I just assumed from the icons shown that it asks for connection ..or a connection is trying ...to be open ...cause those symbols are all related with connection devices..
    If you let e know the make and model ..I will look for a resetting solution and it might work again ..

This is the boot screen, Remove the power connection, and reinsert while you press the "Cancel" button at the same time, if done correctly, your Roadmate should continue to boot and enter the user mode.

Temperature below safe level warning when starting GPS


Ahh yes the ever so elusive temp. below safe level error. lol. (sorry) Attached to the radio board are 3 wires connecting to the top of your lcd. This is where the temp is read from. I know telling you this doesn't help, just info. This problem has been fixed from swapping out radio boards (the board that's behind your keypad), additionally swapping out hard drives. I'm not sure if the unit will detect the USB but, if you can, try re-loading whichever version you have ie. 4.32/5.14. As far as end user fixes, I don't exactly have one unless you can find a scrap unit that someone doesn't want b/c it's malfunctioned as well. Good luck and I wish I could of been more help. -Dan

LCD Screen shows Kodak Logo when turned on then goes blank.


You've probably corrupted the firmware download. If the camera is still recognized by your PC then I'd try downloading the firmware again and try to load it again into the camera. I don't wish to upset you but corrupting the firmware can in some instances make the camera unusable. Your manual should tell you if there's a reset and how to do it. Don't forget the camera's firmware can also be upgraded by loading the update onto the memory card and running it from there. GOOD LUCK BMW
