    Tomtom One Europe: (2nd edition)

    No Power up.

    Guess usb port problem.

    Some flashes of green LED on shaking the usb cable and holding it in place for a while. But now even that is not happening.

    Need power - desperately!!

    (I'v tried resetting et al), via car charger as well as via notebook USB.

    Green light isn't on.  Hear clicking noise when I hit "on" switch.  Reset doesn't do anything.

Tom is probably right, the carbon contact on the switch wears out. Open the case and replace the switch.

Screen freezing on switching on

If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.

You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.

Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.
Seeing a few start up issues around at the moment but am not sure if it is a tom-tom update issue or just the tom-tom itself.

Loss of signal

It is most lkely the battery, chane the battery and recharge it. batteries collapse after about 2 -3 years depending on use and abuse. If you have it plugged in when starting the engine the battery will deteriorate quicker and eventuslly fail. resting the battery can cause some charge to return, often sufficient to run it for short periods before it once again fails due to output being greater than the chrging rate.

Tom Tom XL worked fine and then after stopping for lunch could not find satelite signal the rest of the 200 mile drive.

Try going online at the Tom Tom site and updating the device (it's free). There's a new update each week that tells the Tom Tom where the satellites will be during the coming seven days. Admittedly, this only speeds up the process and not finding a signal for 200 miles is a stretch, but it's worth a try if you don't regularly update.

Tom tom one battery change

I too dropped my tom tom go 300. It appears the battery was disloged as it will only work if attached to another power source; AC Adapter or cigarette plug. Does anyone know how to open the case to check on the battery?

I faced the same problem for tom tom and found that the battery had gone down. I switched it on after connecting to the power source in the Car and it was fine.

If its not battery may have to contact tom tom support.
