SOURCE: Tomtom go 730 will not power up.Brand new,used a coupla weeks.

you need to do a hard restart. find tiny hole on under side by bracket mount and press it with a tiny paper clip once. you have to look very very close to see it. you can also try to hold down on power button for 5 to 6 sec.

SOURCE: TomTom will not charge with car charger

Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.

If you have a tom tom from the GO models
they hace a reset button you can press with a pin were the mount fits.
When you plug in the charger the green light should come on to say it is chargeing.
Try the car adapter to charge the tom tom

My TomTom One V3 won't switch on. The green light shows it as charging but it won't power up. Tried reset as discussed with TomTom


If reset not worked, then must open up, take out battery and then reset, then you must hook up USB and upgrade software, also maybe need to get new battery too, often battery seems OK, but not,.

Tomtom1version3 power on light on but will not switch on. Same problem using mains charger or in car power supply.Also computer is not picking the unit up as an external device


I'm afraid you have the green light of death. This happens when the car charger delivers more power than the TomTom can handle and it blows a couple of diodes.

Tom Tom not working


hold the power on button down until it turns on, does this help, also being plugged into charger with green light coming on normally means that the unit is charged.

Tomtom wont charge.


If it is charging via a USB connection on your computer there is nothing wrong with the TT. It doesn't matter if you are trying to charge via USB, mains, or car charger the connection is the same for all in your TT. I would look elsewhere for the problem. More than likely your car charger is faulty.

Tomtom Go 920 failure


The power light only shows that power is getting to the TomTom. It proves nothing else and doesn't even confirm that the internal battery is charging. If you have tried a reset ( by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole at base of your TomTom and that hasn't worked then it's likely you have blown internal components . Usually caused by faulty charger. I hope the reset works ... good luck

CANNOT RECHARGE TOMTOM


If you have the green light lit on top of the tomtom but it won't switch on , then you have a condition commonly known as "the Green Light Syndrome". Most likely cause is blown components inside the tomtom that regulate voltage. The reason they blow is usually due to user connecting incorrect charger ( such as a 12v one for a phone ) or sometimes the tomtom charger goes faulty and instead of ouputting 5 voltas it outputs 12 volts and damages the tomtom inside. the parts are not easily repalced and require a specialist repair centre that has good experience of repairing tomtoms. You cannot repair it yourself using a normal soldering iron. Good luck.

Try cleaning the TT contacts with alcohol, make sure the unit is off when you do it.

TOMTOM GO 710


Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.
