Due to an accident, (nothing to do with me, but that's awhole other story) I cannot charge the unit except thru USB. Is there anywhere I can buy the yellow plastic charger 'yolk' from inside the h340 & also I have now lost the charger.
So anywhere that sells electronic parts & anywhere that sells chargers?

Buy it a new cable. Get one marked as USB 2.0 I have a ebook reader that was not charging via USB, the cable not fitting snugly. I works fine with another cable, and, yes, it is a nice, snug fit. The socket on the unit might be damaged or there may be a fault on the circuit board, but a loose connector is more likely.
It is probably not turning on due to extremely low battery. Have you been using it for quite a few years? Then there may be a problem with the battery. But before that, please try connecting the player to another USB port on your computer, or removing any USB extensions except what SONY provided, or upgrading your USB driver. If nothing works, I'm afraid you'll have to refer it to a service center.
There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps
I had this issue also. When I got it out of the box, it had maybe 30 minutes of playtime without a charge before the battery went low. I used the USB it came with and found plugging it into my laptop AND desktop does absolutely nothing; even though the magellangps.com states the USB can be used as a charger on the PC.
It's been less than 8 hours since I've had it, and I have not gotten a chance to use the car adapter to charge it... I have a DC/AC unit inside my house which I am using to charge the unit and it works fine (incase you dont know what a DC/AC adapter is; its pretty much a lighter adapter that plugs into the wall).
MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT -
With my migraine starter experience with charging and powering on; I have read on 100's of Magellan 3250 reviews that cold tempratures cause these issues.
Other possible causes:
Battery is 100% dead = leave it in your car charging (HIDE UNDER THE SEAT!)
If the USB port plugged in charging in the car; if it is still not working, make sure that the FM part is also plugged in. I found that my GPS does not charge with just the USB end plugged... At least for me, it will only charge with BOTH ports plugged....
I hoped my novel helped... If it didn't; return your Magellan, and buy a GARMIN GPS. I have a Garmin that I bought for my hubby, and 2 years later, has never once experienced any issues.
The usb message has nothing to do with the ability of the unit to charge. It just means that the port on your computer is recognised as a USB 1.1 port.
It is more likely that the battery no longer holds a charge. The battery can be replaced but it is difficult to open up the unit without damaging the casing. There are instructions on opening up the unit on youtube. Other than buying a faulty unit with a working battery I don't know how to get hold of the batteries. Be careful when replacing the battery. If it is connected the wrong way you will fry your unit.
