Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
Think fault is a poor connection inside the unit with the male pin that the female charging lead attaches to. I have used 3 different leads. When I use a new lead the unit charges better for a few days then fails again(intermittantly). If I apply pressure eg use rubber bands to pull the Male pin and female lead together this helps-but it's hardly charging at all now.In fact it will not stay on. Does the male pin need a soldering job doing? thankyou in anticipation.
I have had the same problem.
after carefully dismantling the unit I resoldered the connections to the power plug.( using a fine tipped soldering iron) I did this on both sides of the pcb.
Although the joints did not look to bad after re soldering and reassembly the unit has performed faultlesly ever since.
As you have to disconnect some sockets and remove pcb,s to do the job properly its best done by someone competent in this sort of work.
One thing to note that caught me out, make sure the lead from the internal antenna is connected as you put the unit back together
