Hi jenniferj936,

your model gps doesnt need a battery to operate. if you know how to open the gps, open it and disconnect the battery, then plug in the home or car charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds. if it starts, let me know and ill give you a link to buy a replacement battery. if it doesnt start, please continue reading.



this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 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

Why wont my USB charger will not stay in back of gps?


Hello,

There should be enough friction from the plug and the cable to hold it in, look and see if the power receptical has fallen into the GPS or possibly some of the pins have fallen from the cord. But it sounds as if the receptical has broken.

Hope this helps!

The power on button is not working. Magellan only comes on when plugged in to power.


hi wptbtot,

its uncommon for those power switches to fail but it does happen. are you looking for another switch or someone to replace it for you?

follow the link below for the magellan power port and ask that fellow (me) that sells them for what ever help your looking for. im not allow to help you directly from the fixya website unless its technical info.

if you just need instructions on how to fix it, i can still help you here on this website.

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.

any flashing red powerlight ?? (assuming theres any charge left)
if the powerlight flashes quickly then the units kaput ( bin it)
slow flashing means the microswitch may be stuck (the one that turns off the screen when you close the lid.
you may have to be sneaky at a dealer and ask to plug in to a new mains unit ( most new panasonics still use the same power supply voltage and ampage. if it works then run away quickly and go buy a universal power supply, if it doesnt , well your in the right place tobuy a new one ??

Nuvi 760 will not turn on !!


I just had the same issue, after using the unit for 11 months.
WOULD NOT power on... and i freaked.
This is what solved it, no matter how strange it sounds...
I held the 'power switch' to ON for 20 secs, then it came on again.

I hope this works for you as well!

Power pin fell off inside of Magellan Roadmate 3000T


I managed to solder my connector back in place. The ground trace broke away from the board so I had to install a jumper to ground. I put RTV on the connector to secure it after the repair.
Worked great for a few weeks until it was dropped again and lost power, something else has a broken connection.
