Question about Tomtom One Europe v2 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tomtom 1 Hi,my TomTom1 was working fine until a few weeks ago.Whenever I switch it on now all I get is a white background with an orange box inside it with a picture of a TomTom on it.It looks like it has frozen.I have tried turning it off,removing the sd card,reseting it for 15sec etc.It is also no longer recognised by my laptop when I have it connected and logged into TomTom home.It just keeps telling me to connect device even though it is connected.I emailed dropvault and they said it is either a problem with the software or the firmware on the main circuit board.Now I dont mind paying the 60-100 quid this is going to cost to fix,if I have to pay it.Cant help feeling there has to be another solution.Any help would be great.

Tomtom white screen

Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

Tomtom go 720 won't start up

leave on charge for two hours, then if you have a sd card take the SD card out, hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.
Connect your TomTom to your

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.
You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.
Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.
Copy the Yellow Folders from the
backup True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

Tom tom not working

  1. First , try a re-set through the 'reset' hole underneath the tomtom. 1 quick short press is all thats required. Unlike others suggest , you do not need to hold it in for anything longer than half a second. You should feel the switch 'click' as its a tactile switch. Don't press too hard as you can damage the switch and cause it to lock ON. Once pressed , try turning the tomtom on as normal. Sometimes a tomtom battery can drop below its normal "shelf" voltage ( normal is about 3.8 volts ). A tomtom charger has a protection circuit inside to stop or slow the current it gives out if there is a short. If your battery HAS dropped volts TOO MUCH ( less than 3 volts ) the charger can "see" the tomtom battery as a "short" and the charger therefore shuts down and doesnt charge the battery. You could leave the charger connected and HOPE that the very small amount of current it's putting out will eventualy bring the battery up over 3 volts. Once it is up near its "shelf" voltage ( called shelf voltage as that is the voltage the battery is at 'on the shelf' ie . when its not powering anything ) the charger will begin to charge as normal....... OR ... you can gain access to the battery and charge it from a bench power supply that has voltage and current meters. Once again , once the battery voltage gets something near 3.8 volts the normal tomtom charger can be used to charge it. You caould connect another normal battery to the tomtom battery just for a few seconds ( not recommended and can be a bit dangerous ) if the normal battery is such as a PP3 9v type it should bring up the tomtom battery to over 3.8 volts in a few seconds. The tomtom can then be charged as normal. .............. It is also possible that some internal IC's ( chips ) have blown inside the tomtom and unfortunatly this would require a specialist repair centre to replace them as they are really very very small and are not a normal soldering job. Good luck. ... if this post has helped you or interested you please rate the author.

Tomtom 3rd edition

I think it has to do with hooking up your unit via the usb cable to the computer. I got one from Radio Shack and it worked fine for a day, drove with it and shut it on and off a couple of times. Then I hooked it up to my emachine computer, and all I got was a white screen. Took it back got another one, drove with it, turned it on and off a couple of times, worked fine. Then I hooked it up to my computer, and again the same white screen until I reset it. I noticed all these posts are in the last few days, so I would say it is a bad batch of units. I purchased one for my wife 3 weeks ago and no such problem.
