After the screws are out, just put something (I used a fingernail, but you might want to use something like a butterknife or a thin bladed screwdriver) between the silver front casing and the black back casing at the top front corner. Then gently pry until it separates. Do the same thing for the other top corner and the case should just pull loose. Be careful not to stress the cables connecting the speaker and the battery by pulling the back casing more than a few inches from the front casing (the battery and the speaker are attached to the back casing). The battery is held in place with sticky tape. Just disconnect the cable and gently pry it free from the sticky tape.

SOURCE: I broke off the power connector inside my Tomtom

I finally managed to pull back the rear cover by inserting a thin piece of metal at the top of the rear cover. It snapped off by pulling it backwards and then downwards. And I soldered the connector back on. I only had to solder the 4 feet of the small metal shield, the contacts are just pressing on the circuit board.

Came apart eventually, click action!
Surface mount USB was a little tricky to remove, got there in the end and resoldered new part on.
If a Usb cable is inserted awkwardly the internal pins can be easily bent and damaged, rendering your device useless, good job i have experience with removing Usb's.

How to remove and change the battery in a Tom Tom GO 540 Live.


Answer: AnswerI have TomTom 910 in USA, (and I have one in the UK). Access to the battery is behind the front screen but the plug is under the circuit boards.

1) Remove 4 screws under ends of rubber strips on back. (All screws are Torx number 6)

2) Remove back cover. Front frame around screen comes off easier now.

3) Remove 2 screws in round top circuit board. Remove 4 screws from lower circuit board. These two boards may have a glue connection. Do not worry if it separates

4) Lay back circuit boards to unplug battery. Note flat ribbon cables are fragile. The 3 wire plug is the battery. Unplug wires to battery from receptacle on circuit board.

5) Remove front screen by pressing a screwdriver against the small metal tags that follow the edge of the screen. The tabs need to be pushed in slightly to allow you to lift the screen out. It may need some leverage, but be careful not to put the screwdriver to far behind the screen as there are a couple of thin cables for the connections.

6) To remove the hard drive you may need to unscrew the vertical black tags about 2 cm long. These simply come away and are grasping the business card size silver box IE the hard drive. The rubber end caps are pressed in, pry out with small screw driver.
7) Remove battery and replace. Note the two sided sticky tape around battery. When putting more tape on, be careful you do not put to much around the right hand end as it will connect with the thin cable when you put it all back together.

9) Reverse assembly. Mine works fine now, good luck. (and so does mine! BLP)
Footnotes: I did not have a Torx #6 screwdriver nor could I buy one locally. I found a #7 mini star bit works just fine. Source: Harbor Freight item # 93316, 6 piece Mini Star Bit Set - $3 PMVN - 9/19/2009
I am not advertising but Batteryship.com included with the battery #5 & #6 torx screwdrivers, a very small philips (star), a straight screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. Whatever I paid more than another place it was worth it.

When disassembling do not remove the battery clip. Just pop out the battery from the front (experienced having to reassemble that whole thing). Also having a set of tweezers to put the electrical connections back together helped a bunch.Not sure if this will help but they may be close designs

Battery on my Tom Tom XXL540S is dead. How do I replace it. I can see no way to disassemble the unit.


Remove the two #5 torx screws under the label, using a butter knife or similar and starting near the screw hole side, slide the knife under the front bezel and pop it off the back. Push small white connector clamp towards ribbon cable on back half and the cable will slide out. The two halves are now separated. Remove three screws and remove circuit board. Wiggle and pull out the battery connector. Slide butter knife under battery and pry loose from the sticky tape.
Voids any warranty!

Very easy! First, unstick the label on the botton of the unit.Using a Torx T6 tool, unscrew the two tiny screws.
Now remove the front silver finishing very carefully from the lower edge since the screen may come off along with it damaging the flat cable
Good Luck

Can not open it to change battery tomtom 1 3rd edition help pleast john


I take no responsibility if you damage your tt in this procedure.
To open the tt one third edition and change the battery you will need a # 8 and a # 6 torx bit. Remove the 4 # 8 torx screws on the back of your tt. After removing the screws carefully insert a guitar pic between the two halves starting at the top and continue around to the sides. Be careful so you don't damage the case. After you have gotten the three sides loose (top, right side, and left side gently pull the two halves apart from the top (be very careful at this point so you don't dislodge the USB port). Do NOT take it completely apart at this point because you have to remove the battery and speaker connections (they just pull out with a little wiggling motion). After you have taken the case apart and disconnected the battery and speaker cables you will need a # 6 torx to remove the board (don't skip this step because the battery is held in with two sided tape and you have to pry the battery out). Now that the board has been removed take a small screwdriver and pry up on the battery. Now all you have to do is reassemble your tt in the reverse order. Just remember the smaller screws are for the board

Battery will not hold charge on tomtom 300


TomTom will not service tomtoms out of the warranty period. I tried them and they dont . They say / argue that there are many companies offering service . I would suggest that the battery is user replaceable with a little bit of DIY knowledge. You need the correct screwdrivers whicth are Torx type. You can buy them cheaply in sets from size T5 up to T20. First remove screen surround by pushing the windscreen mount clip underneath the tomtom , towards the screen. This will push the surrounf out enough for you to grab the bottom of it and pull it off. Next unscrew the 4 torx screws located in 4 holes around the screen. Next , extract the tomtom 'innards' by easing the assembley out of the front of the case. Next , unscrew the 2 torx screws that hold the speaker in place. Next , remove the 2 smaller torx screws UNDER the speaker. This will then allow removal of the plastic clamp that holds the cylinder shaped battery in place.NEXT , unplug the battery ( theres 3 wires go to a little plug on the circuit board ) and withdraw it through the gap left by the speaker. Fit NEW BATTERY ( available off ebay ) and reassemble in reverse order. Of course all this should be done very carefully. DO NOT RUSH. Work on a clear bench and put something soft on the bench to protect the tomtom. DO NOT force anything , it should all come apart easily. If you are unsure , inexperienced at messing with fiddly things or just plain nervous then get someone else to do it.
