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
try re setting the TomTom, reset button is founded on the bottom underneath where the docking mount connect, hold down for 15 seconds, then press the little button on the top on the right side while turning on. worked for me
Hi, leaving the unit in the cradle exposed to the sun during hot days has been known to fry the battery causing loss of battery capacity. perhaps this could be your problem. I replaced the battery in my last GPS 4 times because of this before I analysed the problem. This will most likely be outlined in your user manual too. You might also compare the output capabilities between your blackberry and tomtom charger - it is entirely possible that you are starving the unit of a decent charge if the blackberry charger is not to the same current capacity as the tomtom charger.
It depends on the country you are located however you can get a battery
replacement kit from most large electronics components. Ebay is also
not a bad source but pick sellers with perfects ratings or nearby with pay on
Also Google 'TomTom One replacement battery' for your country.
In all cases, shop around as prices can vary up to 300% for the same product! In all case, for nearby outlets, as it is not really a difficult task, ask if they will replace the battery for you at that cost. ps. You will need to very carefully open the GPS backcover with a special screw driver to access the old battery.
Hope it helps!
im not sure how you tried to charge your tomtom, but you should charge for about 4 hours using the usb cable to your computer. if the battery is totally drained, this is how you should charge it. for some reason unexplained by tomtom, the home or car charger wont work to get it running again.
It might be a fusible link. That is a short wire smaller than the main wire that will burn to protect the larger wire. This should be next to positive battery post.
Try using a jumper wire right at the solenoid on the starter. The large post to the small terminal. If starter works you have a wiring issue.
You need to connect TomTom to a computer and run their 'TomTom Home' program. Let it check for updates. It will download a file called "QuickGPSfix data". This file updates your TomTom with the latest satellite positions and ensures your TomTom will find its coordinates very quickly after switching on. A new file can be downloaded at least once a week. Generally, the longer you left it since downloading this file, the longer it will take to find its coordinates (ie. find a signal).
