    what does "if you lifted a pad then you can't fix it" mean? How do you open the unit?

    Not sure if my previous comment was posted but here it gos again.

    The electrical pin contacts can be soldered with special tools and much patience..

    But simple soldering of the contacts is a temporary solution since the design does not provide for a firm support for the component.

    If a few small solder points are considered sufficient to provide adequate support for a dynamic connection system I think that the Magellan engineers should find an occupation more suitable to there capabilities.



    How about soldering and gluing the component to the PC board?

If you lifted a pad then you can't fix it.. otherwise solder it back on.

Wont charge or turn on


not sure how long you have had this, but if the unit was completely turned off or battery completely dead, you have to hold the power button for about 15 seconds for the 3000t to start up...assuming the charge light at the top right is orange (that means its charging) no light means its not charging, green light means fully charged. if there is no power light on at the top right of unit, either the charger is bad or the port on the board is bad (which i do have) good luck and hope this helps. bill

DC RECEPTACAL BROKE OFF INSIDE UNIT.


Hello All,

I am a utility contractor in Portland Oregon. My trucks all have the 3000T and this is an oh so common problem. I found an electronics store here in Oregon called Frys Electronics. To repair the DC plug you will need to replace it with a new one. It is a 1.3mm dc port/jack and if soldering it you will need to have a min. of a 40 watt soldering iron and need to order a narrow long tiped replacement tip for the iron. You can find all your parts needed at frys.com or I can FWD you all the info. Oh the ground strap is reuseable and I have not been able to find a replacement and Megellan sucks at selling their parts. There is also an awsome bunch of guys that have been very helpful @ NORVAC in Tigard OR. I wish you all luck.

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.

I CAN'T TURN ON MY MAGELAN ROADMATE 3000T


I lost the ability to charge mine after the female piece of the adapter on the unit itself was worn after a year of use. The company has been clueless, and three attempts to urge them to simplify my efforts to fix this have all met with frustration. They suck at Magellan. I threw it in the trash and bought a Garmin.

Reparation


power pin probably came loose. If you can open up the unit and re-solder the power connector to the board. If you need more assistance re-post and I'll tell you in further detail. Also, make sure the end of your power cable is getting juice.. flow.. is hot? live? has power to it.
