My Magellan 3000T does not turn on, even when connected to the power source. The 'green' light does come on but nothing else and it does nothing when not connected. It worked fine the last time I used it, about 3 weeks ago.
Same here! first my original car charger stopped working, so i purchased a replacement (a generic one off ebay), plugged it in and the little light on the top right turns on. but i have not been able to turn it on. i've left it charging for at least a half hour and nothing. any ideas?

i fix these and many other magellan
gps daily so when considering
my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.
assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and
your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while
plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below
is actually a very common problem with these magellan power
ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean
always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then
the factory port.
if your able to replace that power port
yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that
sells them for help.
due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im
not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to
get further help.
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
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.
