Turns off and on sporatically


Which model is it ?
On the Go 300/500 series there's a reset in the base. You will need a thin pin or similar to reset.
Take out the map card then turn the unit on.Push the pin into the reset hole at the base.
You will then get the start screen and the maps will reload once you replace the memory card.
On the 7 series, simply hold the on button down for approx 15 seconds until the start screen begins to show.

Have TomTom 910 Having Problems Charging it.


The 910 satnav/mounting interface is dreadful- it is the cause of half the problems on this site! You can order the battery on the net. Google VF5 or Samsung ICR18650-24. To replace, strip off rubber strips. You need a mini star screwdriver, carefully pull unit out of cover gently levering at the side. Carefully observe plastic carry through which acts as button on the front and base clip underneath- this must be reinserted correctly. It is a vital part of the structure- observe it carefully! Remove upper small PCB and large PCB after removing 2 electrical connectors. Battery located under PCB. Dispense with rubber mounting. Reassemble carefully battery holder (loosely until you have placed previous plastic carry through). Tighten battery holder to hold plastic strip which must be located over mounting bracket, carefully reinsert both electrical connectors (different sizes), reattach large PCB then small one, then screw back in cover. It is likely you will then be stuck on initial screen with unit not booting correctly. You must then do software resets (opened paperclip inserted into invisible hole next to connecting strip at back). It is likely that you will have to connect to Tom Tom HOME to do this. I failed here as the darn unit will not connect to my computer.

An awful piece of equipment- I have gone Garmin!

My TomTom 510 will not hold charge and now cannot be switched on


If you are not bothered about using it on battery your tt should work if you have it hooked up to a external power supply such as the car charger or home charger. If it doesn't work using either of the power supplies then your problem is deeper than just needing a new battery. Check the pins on the bottom of your tt to see if they are bent, or out of place. The most common problem for them is the negative pin on the far left with the lcd screen facing away from you gets bent or is not making contact even though the green light is on.
Hope this helps

Screen is blank, shorted out?


If you had the prongs backwards, you probably blew the input diode. I don't know of anywhere other than Tom Tom for service on these.

The TomTom One is known to have sound problems on some units. The 2 main problems:
  1. The speaker is blown or distorted ( needs replacement ) ( some speakers out of old laptops will fit )
  2. The earphone socket on the base of TomTom is dirty or has bent contacts . ( slightly bent contacts will cause sound to dissapear or become broken-up )

Tomtom xl eurpoe switching off


The switching off problem can be generaly be attributed to 3 causes:
  1. Battery is not being charged enough ( charging via USB from a PC will take days ) your charger could be putting out the correct voltage but not enough current.
  2. The battery is on its way out. TomTom batteries have a set lifetime where they gradualy take less and less charge. if your battery capacity is low then you might just have enough power in it to allow the TomTom to start up but then it shuts down again shortly after. ( You can check this becuase if powering the tomtom via a power supply the tomtom should remain switched on ). If this is the case , then it probably proves the battery is the problem.
  3. Faulty software ( very possible ) . I have found that where certain files are corrupted on the SD card the TomTom will shut down at some point in the loading up cycle. The reasoning being that if the TomTom cannot procede with boot up , it will either hang or shutdown or load up incorrectly.
If you made a backup of your SD card then formatting and reloading the files from your PC might cure the problem.

GOOD LUCK
