Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver
How do I open the case of this unit so that I can repair the power connector? I have taken out the four screws on the rear but there must be some hidden snaps. Please help.
FIRST FAIR WARNING: This take apart is best left to the repair tech's at an authorized repair facility. There are 6 snaps, two on the top, two on the bottom and one on eash side. I used a thin blunt tip letter opener and started at the top. This didn't leave any marks on the case that would tip off the repair tech's that you goobered it up inside which you will do if you proceed! Release the two at the top first, then the two on the bottom. Now release the one on the side where the power button is located. Open the case on the power button side only about 1/4 inch and slide the bottom off the top being careful not to separate the power cord and headphone connector plugs from the board that they a fastened to inside the case. SECOND FAIR WARNING: It is very easy to pull the connector plugs from the board and this will really convince the repair tech's that you ruined your $350 GPS. Good luck and don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!!

Anyone know where to purchase a power connector for the unit to repair? The little pin broke off of it.

Remove the 4 screws on the back
Pry the case apart starting at the top (a metal ruler or putty knife will work)
