    Tomtom powers up fine with the USB cord to computer -
    Car Cord does not work, but green light is on...

    Is there a fuse that can be replaced? It appears to be a fuse on the side of the part that goes into the car lighter socket.

Try pressing the on button for five seconds or more if you haven't already tried that.

My tomtom 920 simply won't turn on, I used it yesterday and it was fine, though it did warn me that the battery is very low. I have charged it for 1hr but it still won't come on. What could be the problem...


The batery is finished, even if you plug it in the cigar lighter and the green light goes on, your TOMTOM will still not work when the batery is dead..get one real cheap on ebay.
Good luck

My TomTom One V3 won't switch on. The green light shows it as charging but it won't power up. Tried reset as discussed with TomTom


If reset not worked, then must open up, take out battery and then reset, then you must hook up USB and upgrade software, also maybe need to get new battery too, often battery seems OK, but not,.

Green charge light on, power button will not switch it on


even though the green light is on, hook it up to the usb cable2_bing.gif to your computer for a few hours,(make sure the green power light on the front is on) then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.


if that fails, let me know and we can try something else

Unit will not power on.


its probably not the battery, your gps should run even without a battery if the power port/circuit is ok. unfortunately this is a common problem that the usb port gets damaged with this and many other model of magellans gps systems.

if you had it plugged in to the car charger, make sure the green light is on while charging, if its not, you might have a blown fuse in the charger or the fuse for the cigarette adapter in the car.

if the green light is on, try letting it on for a few hours, then try and turn it on. if and when it turns on, you can verify if its charging by going to the system settings then the power option. the battery bar should turn green and move from right to left if its charging. if the battery is slightly low but the bar is not moving left to right, then its not charging.


you can check the charging by using the usb cable provided with your unit and hook it up to your computer to verify if its charging. but i suspect it has a bad power port (usb connector)

i hate to be the barer of bad news, because rarely do i get a good rating for being the barer of bad news, but hopefully you just have a bad charger or a blown fuse in your adapter or car.

good luck

MY TOMTOM WILL NOT SWITCH ON EVEN THOUGH I HAVE CHARGED FOR OVER 12 HOURS. THE GREEN LIGHT SHOWS ITS CHARGING. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE WRONG?


Curious... how long have you held down the power button to turn it on? I've had to hold the power button on mine for 2 mins once to power it on.

My magellen 3100 battery will not charge


its probably not charging...very common problem with this and many others.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get it repaired, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

Yesterday, when driving, I noticed that the device said i was receiving no signal, even though I was out on the interstate... I got frustrated and turned it off... I figured that it would give it ample...


The green light does not necessarily mean there is power to the unit or charging the battery. If the unit is more than 3-5 years old, you may have success with replacing the battery. If you have a power source with sufficient current output capabilities then you could try that with the battery removed.

I just plugged it into my cigar lighter in the car,the lead got hot and the tom tom went off,when I got home I charged it up only to see green light.


Unfortunatly this is a well known problen with the tt one car charger. When the car charger went bad it sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a couple of diodes on the board. Even though the green light comes on this is just an indication that power is available not that it is charging. Sorry to say but all you have now is a paper weight. Try selling it on ebay. People will buy it for spare parts.

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.

Will not charge


I have a similar problem and I think I solved it (orr found a way to work around it). It looks like the contacts are not connecting firmly so even though the green light may be on, the charging conneciton is not made. With the tomtom on your home dock from the front page on your tomtom, touch near the lower right of the screen on the satellite strength indicator, this should bring up a screen where it shows (among other things) your batter status at the top right. If it is charging, the word charging will be under the battery strength indicator. Just play with it until you get the word "charging" to appear under the picture of the battery.then HANDS OFF until it is charged. I doubt this will be successful with the car charger since the movement of the car will likely jar the connection loose. Good luck.
