SOURCE: Tom Tom 700 will not turn on.

Take a look inside your tomtom go . The photo's uploaded are of the GO and Go 300 / 500 / 700 10676aa.jpgseries so yours might not look exactly the same but will be similar to these. SEE PHOTO of the IC's highlighted RED. U24 is on the same side of the circuit board as the card reader. U25 is on the same side of the board as the power socket. These are the 2 chips / IC's that will be blown if reversed supply or more than about 6 volts has been applied. The blown components are usually blown due to attaching the WRONG charger or a faulty charger. ( the tomtom cigarette lighter leads often go faulty ) These IC's are very very small ( just 3.5mm across ) and the 10 pins ( 5 on each side ) are even smaller and very close together therefore normal soldering ability will not allow a novice to replace them. Special soldering irons are needed , magnifying glass or special microscope for electronics + a steady hand and good light. Its highly unlikely that a home repair is possible. Besides that , even engineers with years of soldering experience have great difficulty replacing these components and it often takes me 30 minutes just to replace one of these IC's and I have a steady hand. Most normal electronics repair companys cannot repair this type of component as they will normally deal with bigger things. So unfortunatly, your "corner of the street" TV repair shop won't be able to fix it for ya either. As far as I know TomTom don't repair these IC's either as its too fiddly and time consuming and for them not worth the effort. Your only hope is one of the repair people offering this service on online . Try a look on ebay under "faulty tomtom" .

SOURCE: my tom tom will not turn on.I have taken the card

You may need a new internal lithium rechargeable battery.
There are are many parts available on the internet for TomTom. Ebay is a good start.

You can also google for answers on how to disassemble the unit, but there are plenty of answers on this website for the TomTom GPS.

Cheers,
Steve

SOURCE: flashing white x on my tom tom one xl with IQ

TomTom is aware of a problem with this unit that is normally caused by the car charger and unit being turned on and in use when the engine is started ( causing undue interference in the supply, tomtom chargers are not, im afraid, known to posess the best regulator circuits on the market) This can lead to symptoms as in your case, or as bad as a totally dead unit ( the front light will illuminate when the on/sby button is pressed and it will only go off when the unit is reset)In all the cases ive seen tomtom has replaced the unit. Im afraid you will have to contact tomtom by phone and they will normally arrange FOC collection by a courier.

When I try to connect my tom tom 720 to my lap top a message says usb connection is not recognised


Have you tried to connect to a desk top through the USB port to isolate the laptop or GPS issue.

If you get the same problem with a desktop than I would suggest that you perform a hard reset to the GPS. This is done through the pin hole in the case labled "Reset" insert the tip of a paper clip into the reset hole and reset the device.

If this fails try reloading the GPS software, there are instructions on the Tom Tom web site

When I turn on my tom tom one it shows the welcome screen for about 120 seconds theb takes me through the settings and once I Selet a charector it freezes and goes back through the same process. How can I...


two types of reset.....
....One, Soft reset get a paper clip and poke it in the small hole at the bottom for 1-2 seconds (near where you charge it) the hole is only big enouth for a paper clip, there are no other requirements for this.
....Two, Hard reset same as above but 10-30 seconds and it also has to be plugged into a power sorce, this one take a long time be patient and DO NOT unplug it after this has started as doing so could render your tomtom usless.

MY TOM TOM WILL NOT START


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.

If you do a hard reset you may have to set some of your preferences back too.

There is a tiny reset button on the back of the device where the mount goes. Its hard to spot so `go to the tom tom web site to get help with this if you can't spot it. Use a paper clip and press it in this recess hole for 30 seconds. This will reset the device and should work after that. make sure you back up your device and keep a paper clip in the car!
