Question about Tomtom XL 330 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

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

I don't particularly want to buy an after market battery (£16 incl. postage) in case that doesn't solve the problem.

I am able to delve inside if there is a fix available - I just want my TomTom working again! (Not bothered about using it 'on battery'.)

I would have a TOmTOm again as I love the system.....

Thanks Claire

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

System battery is low


Dear Anonymous,
BEST PRACTICE: Buy an anti-static wristband before going "under-the-bonnet! Many people will advise that it is ok to delve around the insides of a computer without one, but that can be an expensive mistake...when they only cost a couple of bucks & can save you the trouble & expense of zapping ex$pensive hardware. Your computer box contains extremely sensitive chips & the human body can store up to 50,000 volts of static electricity...
TURN POWER OFF AT WALL SOCKET! [But leave plug in wall socket - this will extend power-system earth to the box.] Then press & hold power-on button on front of box case. (This will "earth" the system.)
Open computer box: Most Dell tower/mini tower boxes have a slider on the back panel: hold slider open & slide side of case backwards.
Find a non-painted - (bare) - metal connection point for wristband alligator clip inside box. Attach clip. {N.B.: if you do this procedure WITHOUT an anti-static wristband, be sure that you "earth" your body, by holding on to the bare metal connection point for a few seconds!} Locate the cmos - (or "BIOS") - battery. It will be a button-shaped battery. Check "Polarity" - (which way up) - of old battery. 'Eject old battery from holder. Check battery TYPE - (make sure that new battery is identical/equivalent. Push new battery into holder. Remove wrist clip. Replace side-cover. Power on. Reboot computer. N.B.: If asked during bootup - restore BIOS settings to "default". That's it! I hope that this solves your problem. Kind regards - 'b'ye - Bruce.

Where can I buy a battery for my MP3 Player?


generally we need a 3.7v battery in this player which is also used for the classic cellophones. One should try it from India or China where the classic cellphones are still in market. The battery will cost less than 4$ bt the cost of courier or postage will approx 30$ internationally. I will try if u can send me the actual image of the existing battery in case if u want to replace it. I will find the model of the cellphone and then u can buy ur batery from any online shopping website. Check for the battery model number and voltage & amp. I m a banker and have many contacts with cellphone and accessories distributors. u can write me back.. sarveshis4u@yahoo.co.in else try on any of shopping site. i will wait...

Blank screen , sound only . TV now written off by Comet . Engineer says a New Invertor is not available.. isn't this part of the Power supply. Are they still availlable for this 2007...


Hi Frank,

Depends where you look. Comet have a list of appointed suppliers for electronic components. If those suppliers don't have / cant get a particular component, as far as they're concerned, it's no longer available. This doesn't mean it's unobtainable, but Comet aren't going to start searching the internet or asking non-appointed suppliers for it.

It took me less than 2 minutes to locate 2 for you from UK suppliers, 1 new, 1 used. I could probably find some more, if I looked a bit harder.

Part number: 6632L-0238B

New (£29.99 + £5 postage)
http://www.sendz.co.uk/lg-philips---6632l-0238b---lc370wu1---kls-ee37ci-sht---slave---inverter-635-p.asp

Used (£14.57 + £2.80 postage)
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120752894566#ht_4625wt_1052

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Kindly help me with my problem about my lgkm555e. when i charge it the unit will become hot easily and the charging icon doesn't move at walang 5 minutes low bat na.


Battery draining fast?

Hi, most causes of battery cell running down very fast is because the problem is not from the battery, but from the cell phone it self.

Some times a phone will just start malfunctioning due to when something happens to a phone earlier and no action was taking during that particular period in time, it might make the cell phone to malfunction later on.

The problem of the phone is an IC chip inside on the board of the cell phone that has been damaged that is making the battery cell to discharge.
You will need to replace the IC inside the phone.

The more you don't repair the IC on time inside the phone,you will keep on buying more batteries.

To fix or replace the damaged IC, you can contact an expert on phone repair for help.it's a little bit technical to handle.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

MINOLTA X 300 SHUTTER RELEASE JAMMED. FITTING NEW BATTERIES DOES'NT HELP AT ALL. Barry.


The Minolta X-series (X-300/370, X-570, X-700) were known for this issue. Two capacitors under the top and bottom covers go bad over time. They prevent the shutter from releasing, so you cannot wind to re-**** the shutter. If you're handy at these things, you can buy the caps, remove the covers, solder in the new caps, and be fine. This issue is well known and you can find instructions on the web. Or you can send it in for repair. Garry's Camera repair in Niles,ILL will do it cheaply at $58 incl return postage. Look him up on the web.
