Using a OHM meter set it to check for continuity. Turn the unit upside down with the charger contact pins closest to you. Using the red (+) probe touch the solder joint directly below the gold contact pin on the far right and the black (-) probe to the gold contact pin directly above. Next do the same thing to the solder joint and gold contact pin to the far right. If you don't get continuity on either pin there is your problem. This can be fixed but it requires taking the unit apart and having some solder skills.
Hope this helps.

My Tomtom 510 will not switch on


You may need a new battery as yours may be completly dead. To test this, plug it into the charger and see if it comes on. If it does, then all you will need is a new battery which are pretty cheap to replace. If it still does not come on, you may have to send it to a repair place to be fixed.

Tomtom 510 doesn't reset


Before you keep resetting your tomtom I would intall a new battery. Call your closest "batteries plus store" or "radioshack store" and then try to reset it, it might be only the battery and nothing to do with the reseting.....

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

Will not take a charge


I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.
