View Full Version : Explorist 600 wont turn on.....

5th March 2007, 03:05 PM
OK unit was working fine...turned off will not turn back on..

Have tried all the usual things, remove battery try again, remove battery , take out sd card try again, remove battery and sd card and try to power up with charging cable connected all with no avail!!

Is there a force on button routine...

or am i destined to send the unit back to magellan for repair....or should i now consider garmin products!

any thought appreciated

I assume you replaced the batts with new ones? Have you connected it to external power?

Hi Nicko,

At this point in time i have not replaced the lithium ion battery as i can not believe it has a problem unless it has shorted....i need to try this.

I have removed the battery and attempted to power up with no success.....

Try a completely different set of batteries or make a 100% sure your's are properly charged.
Then try to find out or these batteries connect well to the unit, so check the contact points.
If you can, with the batteries inserted, check for voltage at the units contacts.
