Question about LG Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My tomtom one v3 sat nav was left turned on in my bag and then ran out of battery. The same night someone broke into my car and stole the lead that plugged it in to recharge so i plugged it into my laptop with the other lead hoping to charge it up and use it. The tom tom didnt seem to be doing anything so i tried to switch it on. It cam up with the opening page but then it has just displayed a set of vertical coloured stripes almost as if it was doing a visual scan disk display. I have tried unplugging it again and turning it off but pushing the on/off button now just changes the little green light but not the display which remains lit and still nothing happens. Help please i have a full day of work tommorow which i will not be able to do if i cannot find my way to the places i need to go.

Hi, I'm sorry to hear all that bad luck. Did you try to reset your device, wait a couple of minutes and then try to boot it again? Here's how you can try that: You can completely power down your TomTom One by pressing the reset button on the bottom of the unit. This will not cause the device to lose any data (favourites, etc.) or settings.. You can then turn it back on by holding down the ON/OFF button for ~4 seconds. The navcore software will take longer to boot because it is a cold boot – nothing cached or already running in memory. Hope this helps.

    Yes, thats me, and thank you :) We don't really have a distinction like geek or so in my country. And how about the problem?

Cannot get into tomtom one v3


After the screws are out, just put something (I used a fingernail, but you might want to use something like a butterknife or a thin bladed screwdriver) between the silver front casing and the black back casing at the top front corner. Then gently pry until it separates. Do the same thing for the other top corner and the case should just pull loose. Be careful not to stress the cables connecting the speaker and the battery by pulling the back casing more than a few inches from the front casing (the battery and the speaker are attached to the back casing). The battery is held in place with sticky tape. Just disconnect the cable and gently pry it free from the sticky tape.

Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +


1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.
