Question about Tomtom GO GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Screen is blank, shorted out?

When I was pluging in the TomTom it seemed to have shorted out the screen. I bought a universal adapter plug and may have had in backwards. It was working fine before, had universal cord for a couple of months.
Is there a fuse I can replace or do I need to send it in for repairs?

Thank you.

Tomtom xl wont turn on an overheat


It is a design flaw. I had the exact thing happen and TomTom advised "not to let it get warm" inside the car. I'm sorry, this is supposed to be affixed to the windshield and it gets hot. When the sun hits, it stops charging. Hold it in front of the AC vent for a few minutes, it cools down and it charges again. But it shuts off in the heat because it will not charge!

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational...


More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

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.

Blank screen


Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.

If its NEW take it back!

or
contact tomtom about the problem...
