Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.
"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...
Either FORMAT or SCAN... LET IT RUN!
After turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. Your system will immediately start to re-set itself.
If necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps..."
The only difference is that I had to load my SD card in the unit for it to work during the FORMAT.
It is not a major job. I've replaced a few now, though I haven't found a good source for screens other than dead receivers on ebay. Work in a clean place. Take the screws off of the back, including the ones under the battery cover. Locate the ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board. Use the tip of the screwdriver to gently slide the plastic locking bar over, and then the ribbon will easily slide out. If the ribbon doesn't readily come out, you probably didn't get the bar correct. You may have to pull gently to pop the old screen off. Put the replacement ribbon in and slide the locking bar back over, then put it all back together. Be careful and make sure that the gasket is properly seated before you tighten the screws.
If you look on magellan website it states they no longer have or support replacement parts for older gps models.
You can find an explorist for parts on ebay.
I own a explorist 100, 400, 500. I believe the key pads are all the same. If you can not find one, I will sell you the pad from the explorist 100 for 30 dollars plus shipping.

Even though your sister has lost the receipt, many stores have the ability to look up purchases at the store provided she used a credit card. You can not do this over the phone. You will need to have your sister go to the store and ask them to look up her purchase with her credit card. If it is a recent purchase and still within the product warranty you may be able to get a replacement.
