My Magellan RoadMate 1200 wont turn on. It just stopped working

Resolved Question:

My Magellan RoadMate 1200 won't turn on. It just stopped working about a month ago. I've tried charging it both from my computer & from the car adaptor in my truck. Any ideas of what is wrong?

For how long did u charge the gps on a running (not idle / sleep mode) computer ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I was on the computer for about 4 hours the first time and about a week later I had it charging for over 9 hours while I was working on a major project for a client.

In that case your main board has hardware failure and needs to be replaced by magellan. If not in warranty it would be cheaper to buy a new gps.

There is nothing you can do to repair it yourself.
