Hi gaillasarso


the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Mp3 player does not seem to fully charge


Try pressing the reset button on the bottom of the unit and restarting your computer then plugging the usb cord. If still not working try charging from an external usb charger that matches the voltage specs for the aquabeat model you have and letting it charge over night.

Low Battery notice kept coming on


TRY RESETTING THE UNIT - Also - charge the unit over night with a WALL CHARGER - this helped when mine pulled that same stunt. Eventually it went away after charging it over night in the wall. Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings - 1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture. 2-Select YES 5770b9e.jpg

Wont turn on


• Make sure the player is not on hold. Look at the side of the unit and make sure that the HOLD switch is positioned to OFF.
• When you charge the player, does it indicate it's charging? If it does, connect the unit to the PC and poke the reset hold (at the back) with a paper clip until the lights on the unit go out. Disconnect the unit and try turning it on.
• Worst case scenario is the unit may be defective.

Hope this helps!

here is your manual in PDF form
www.palm.com/us/support/handbooks/m500series_ug.pdf

if the unit was new then you would charge it for about 10 hours .. but since its not likely new then it doesnt hurt anything to just leave it on charge ... you can even operate the palm while its charging .. over night charge should be enough to get pretty close to full ... the palm internally automatically turns off the charge when the battery is full .. so you dont have to worry about over charging .. if the unit wont come on then you can do a "reset" (back at top)

Charging Black and Decker Simple Start


First plug the charge adapter into an outlet, then plug into the unit. Push the power button to turn the unit on. Now, push the button for the light. The light should come on. At this point you hit the charge button and the green light should start blinking and there will no beeping. Then turn off the light. The green light should continue to blink and the unit will charge. This worked for me, hope it helps!

RECORDING A VIDEO AT NIGHT


The flash unit is for still photos only. By design it can not be used when shooting video, because it can not stay lit (the flash fires from a stored electrical charge, and needs time to build up another charge).

Did you charge the unit over night? When they are brand new, the batteries are not always charged. See if the lights and screen come on when it is plugged into the charger. If so let it charge over night and try turning it on again. Otherwise, you should probably return the unit.
