I have a handheld Megellan Explorist GC that I use for geocaching. Yesterday when I turned it on it stayed on the first login screen and will not progress forward. I have already tried the reset button (which will tempororily shut it off but it immediately comes back on and just cycles on that 1st screen). The only way to shut it off completely is to open the back and pull the batteries. It was never dropped or abused in any way. Please help!
Model: Explorist GC
Pressed reset button. Pulled out batteries. Tried new batteries.
Hello Sir or Madam and thanks for choosing the JustAnswer.com Electronics category.
I have pulled the batteries SEVERAL times and cleaned out the terminal (which show no corrosion or any other problem. Have also tried the reset button numerous times. Any other suggestions?

I don't think you quite understand my problem........When I turn the unit on, IT IS STUCK ON THE OPENING SCREEN. It will not go further so I cannot get to ANY other place i.e. to chose Menu or Tools or anywhere. I have pressed the restart, I have tried connecting to my PC (since I can't TELL it to connect that's useless) and the only way to shut it off is to remove the batteries (which are new). When I reinsert the batteries and press the "on" button, it just goes back to being stuck on the initial screen. Is there anything else I can do?
