    stuck on magellan and then the screen goes Blank

  • yellow586 Mar 14, 2009

    I turn it on, the Magellan Roadmate Screen comes up, stays like that, then just goes completely blank. I ended up having to use the reset lever to turn it off.

    Also, I have not found any small hole that supposedly resets to factory setting.

    I'm inclined to think that it's dead and time to move on but if there is a way to fix it on the cheap, that would be great.

There should be a small hole eather in the back or side of the unit to insert a tooth pick or something not share to reset the unit to factory defaults.


that should do it

My Magellan Maestro 5310 is stuck on the Magellan start up screen. the little power bar on the the bottom of screen comes up then thats it. It won;t begin to load the next screen. I have tried to reset...


Hello There, I have a Magellan myself, besides me knowing some things or two about GPS'S

Give this a try, seems to work for me and others most the time.


Try this for me to see if this works: Let me know. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, if does work, please click on the thumbs up to showed your a happy customer. Thanks Mike

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

My gps is stuck on magellan boot up screen.


turn on your 1210 once it boots to the magellan screen press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, once it shuts off, power it back on by pressing and holding the power button for up to ten seconds then let it load.


if that fails,power it up and try the reset button, (either on the bottom or on the side)the little pinhole, and use a paper clip to depress the reset
button.

Map is stuck on an old location and won't change to the new location on the map


take the unit outside so that it has a clear view to the open sky, turn the unit on, then push the reset onthe side(you need a paper clip) youll know its reset once you see the magellan logo screen with the black loading bar on the bottom. let in sit outside to Aguire the satellites. this may take upto 30 minutes. if that does not work, you can try the latest update. bill

Screen freezes


I did use the Premium live chat with you. I went through all the steps again that I already did on my own - i.e. resetting the pin hole with power on and power off...touching the screen in the corner when it was powering on....nothing changed.

I called Magellan. My warranty is still in effect and the Magellan rep gave me a repair number and address to send the unit. I will have it back and working in 7 to 10 days at no cost to me.

I wish it had been a really quick fix, I use my GPS in my business. I'm thankful for the warranty. I wish I knew why it did this so I can avoid any possible repeat of the malfunction.

No a practical solution, but at least you will get your device repair, after being on hold for 40 minutes I spoke to a very nice rep, unfortunately evethough she didn't admit it, it seems a software problem with the new 2008/2009 map update, in other words no way to fix it, you need to send it for repair, make sure you tell them to update the device with the new 2008/2009 Maps, if not you will have the same problem later on, Good Luck
