Turns off when I move it slightly

When I power the unit on it is fine until I move it slightly and then it turns off. Thought it was the battery connection but it seems tight. Any solutions? Thanks

The docking cradle is probably the problem. I have the same problem and the power connector inside the docking cradle is broken. I am trying to find a part number to replace it, the part should run about $1, much cheaper than buying a new cradle that will break again anyway.

The unit turns on and off every 1 minute (while charging) is there a way to avoid it this restart?


If this is happening while driving, you could have a cradle going out. Try moving the plug at cradle slightly and if it indicates battery then charges, your cradle is defective. Cradles can be found cheap at www.gpsnstuff.com.

Tomtom white screen


Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

Where is the reset button on the Tomtom xl340s


The TomTom XL 340-S uses the power button as a reset. With the unit turned off, hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds, until the TomTom turns on. As soon as the unit turns on, release the power button. The unit is now reset.

Battery does not keep a charge. Can the battery


yes, the batter can be re placed, but i would verify its charging before buying a battery.

make sure green light is on the car charger (or a known good charger0 and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

after its started, go to the system setting. the battery meter should be moving left to right. if its all green and turns off when unplugged, the battery needs replaced.

your part # for your battery should be 37-00030-001you can get a battery HERE but verify your unit with the seller.

if it only has a few bars and is not moving while plugged it, it is not charging.

this is a very common problem for the models listed below.

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 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...

you can get help to repaired it, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

Unit will not power on.


its probably not the battery, your gps should run even without a battery if the power port/circuit is ok. unfortunately this is a common problem that the usb port gets damaged with this and many other model of magellans gps systems.

if you had it plugged in to the car charger, make sure the green light is on while charging, if its not, you might have a blown fuse in the charger or the fuse for the cigarette adapter in the car.

if the green light is on, try letting it on for a few hours, then try and turn it on. if and when it turns on, you can verify if its charging by going to the system settings then the power option. the battery bar should turn green and move from right to left if its charging. if the battery is slightly low but the bar is not moving left to right, then its not charging.


you can check the charging by using the usb cable provided with your unit and hook it up to your computer to verify if its charging. but i suspect it has a bad power port (usb connector)

i hate to be the barer of bad news, because rarely do i get a good rating for being the barer of bad news, but hopefully you just have a bad charger or a blown fuse in your adapter or car.

good luck

I turned it on and it lit up and then completely died


Question: Why won't my StreetPilot c3xx power on?
Found on the Garmin web site --> Answer: If your StreetPilot does not power on, or if it turns on then turns off, you can troubleshoot the problem by resetting or charging the unit. The reset is a "soft" reset that you can perform in the car; it restores power to the unit, but it does not remove data.
To reset the unit:
  1. Place the unit in the cradle and roll it backwards slightly to lock it in place.
  2. With the key in the car ignition, turn on the unit or put it in accessory mode.
  3. On the face plate of the unit, put your thumb nail in the groove under the Garmin logo and gently pull off the face plate.
  4. With the face plate removed, press the reset button on the right side.
  5. Turn the unit back on. If the unit still doesn't power on, you may need to charge it.
To charge the unit:
  1. Using the provided USB cable, connect the device to the computer.
  2. Reset the unit (following instructions above).
  3. Keep the device connected to the computer and allow it to charge overnight (7-8 hours).
  4. After charging, unplug the unit and power it on.

Turns off when i move the gps slightly.....


I'm going to guess you need a new cradle. The pin inside mine broke off in the female end of the car adapter, resulting in no power. If it's loose & periodically making contact, it would power on & off before finally going off for good. Cradles can be had on ebay for around $20.

My Garmin Etrex wont turn on on batteries but it works fine on external usb power.


I have the same problem. The unit works until I connect it to whatever computer via USB (Mac or PC). The screen blanks out as soon as I plug in the USB cable. I have to disconnect the device and only then I am able to turn it on again. That started after Firmware update from V 2.90 to 3.00 . I am not sure this is causing problem. What about the firmware versions of your devices ? Are they all on the latest ?
However, does anybody know if there is a way to go back to firmware version 2.9 if it is not possible anymore to connect the device to any computer (evtl. through putting data on the microSD card ?).
Thanks,
Martin

"unit turns on and off with the ignition switch, sometimes."

There is something wrong with your power cord or the connection to the cigarette lighter. Your unit should turn on and off with the ignition switch. If the unit is on and doesn't turn off with the ignition switch then your unit is running on battery. If your unit doesn't turn on with the ignition switch then the unit is not getting power from the cigarette lighter.
