My magellan Roadmate 5220-LM powers on but will not go past the first screen. I have tried to use the reset button but it still will not work


Hello Liz, You may have two problems. If your unit is several years old, the battery may need to be replaced. First charge the battery overnight. To get the screen unfrozen , you need to remove the screws on the back, open the case, and unplug the white battery connection . Reconnect the battery connection after a few seconds. If this works, it is usually a temporary fix . Either your battery does not hold a charge or your charger connection is poor at best and can not deliver a full charge to the battery. It could be both.

Magellan RoadMate 2200T won't turn on


ost times not turning on is because the battery is flat or dead. Connect it to a USB charger or and AC charger and leave it for an hour to see if there is any recovery.

If it does not have it taken to a service centre to have the charge circuit checked and a new battery.

GPS does not come on when I plus it into lighter in car.


This behavious is typical of a bad battery or charger and it can also be a internal hardware error. Usually it just means it is time to replace the battery. The age and the symptoms are typical of a dead battery. They are actually pretty resonable for cost $15-$25. You can replace it yourself if you take care to replace any seals properlly. The battery itself just plugs in like a phone battery. Charge it up overnight and you should be up and running.

If the problem is internal you can send it in to Magellan support and they should be able to fix or refurbish it.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

My magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on


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

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

Magellan 2000 doesn't power up


try replacing the battery. ususally if the battery is dead it will freeze or not turn on. if this doesn't work magellan will replace it with a new one at a very reasonable price. I just replaced a magellan 800 with a magellan 3210 for $132.00. your may get a better deal. call magellan
if you have an a/c 110 volt to 5 volt converter for the magellan, try charging it in the house with that one rather than the car charger.
