Try deleating the gupdater file in the system folder. You will need to enable viewing of hidden files on your PC.

Lets see if we can get your unit first working by a common problem and possibly with a common fix. Try this and let me know if worked. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep the on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know if that cleared this up. If not, it is possible there is a shorted circuit inside, then in that case, would have to be sent into Magellan to replace or repair. MIKE

Have you tried the system reset? The button is on the bottom of the unit.

What you mean by that? What you have done?

Plug unit in 110 power, then turn it off. You are going to manually reboot system. When unit is completely off, then turn on, but this time, when turn it on keep the on button fully depressed, do not let go regardless as the unit is turning on, and even when it is coming on going through its thing, keep on button depressed for 10 seconds after unit fires up. Then let go, and this is manually rebooting it, See if now it functions properly, Please let me know, and if fixed, then the 4 thumbs up for my solution with small comment is most appreciated.

there may or may not be anything wrong with it, but id be surprised if there wasnt. this model is by far the worst magellan has ever put out, IMHO, it is plagued with problems right out of the box.

wont start,restarts,wont charge because of the faulty usb connector,freezes,white screen,problems with the digitizer, the screen become littered with dead pixels and on and on.

anyway, charge your 4250 good for a few hours via the usb cable to your computer, the press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds or until it starts, if that fails, let me know and ill give you something else to try.

good luck
