Magellan has to change the batteries But they will probably just sell you a refurbished unit. BUT if your good you can take the thing apart and try to locate a replacement battery Three years old? I'd try to find a battery
Remove the battery for several minutes, replace the battery and plug the wall socket in, leave it for several hours. The battery is probably too dead to do anything, and recharges very slowly. If this doesn't work, try a replacement battery, before you send the unit in for repairs.
check the battery switch on the back. you will need a pen. Mine does the same thing. I believe this switch has to be set to ON for it to work. At least mine wont turn on unless the switch is turned on.
