I don't know what wire you are referring to, however, I just fixed one last week that was 1 year old, not taking a charge (not even to get the screen up at all). Went to batteries plus, ordered a battery for it (there are 4 screws in the back and then some plastic catches that are released with a thin screwdriver--I started on the top). The battery was $25 but the unit is no longer under warrenty and it cost $50 through Radio Shack for them to send it in to the company. Worked perfectly with new battery.

Magellan 3000T, approxiamtely 2 years old. Last week, left home and it died on the road, it wont turn on even when powered by external power. The charge light shows it is charging. but it never...


hi djmercer1

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and 6000t

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 its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this 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.

let me know if you need more help or info

My magellan gps is blank what can I do?


this could be happening for a few reasons but the most common is that its probably not charging.

before checking anything else, plug your 3100 in to a known good charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds till it starts.

if that fails, its likely not charging and i can tell you where ot get it repaired or by the power port if your able to solder it on the main board yourself.


this is very common problem with this and many model magellans.

Magellan Maestro 3100


hi mmeinzer

charge it up for a few hours, then take it outside and start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart, then wait for a while (could take up to 30 minutes after a reset) and let it acquire/lock on to the satellites. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

let me know if you need more help or info

Will not come on.


GPS units should never be permanently left in vehicles. The vehicle interiors get way too cold or hot depending on the climate you live in and is very damaging.

Try taking it indoors and connect it via the supplied a/c wall charger and see if it turns on.
