Re: Power is dead

You cannot get a new board. The IC's need to be replaced. Possibly IC's U24 , U25 and U26.

Re: Power is dead

You cannot get a replacement board. The IC has to be replaced , possibly 3. These are U24 , U25 , U26. You would need specialist tools and ability to do it yourself.

TomTom ONE GPS receiver waiting for a valid GPS signal forever...

well the reset button is behind the front face cover. However I doubt this will do much for you.

Reasons for not connection.
1) Battery is too low and needs full recharge via AC adapter
2) Poor position or being overshadowed by buildings or other electronic devices

3) Dead SIIRF chip caused by starting motor with the GPS plugged to DC power. Might work a 100 times without problem 101 kills it. The whole mother board needs to be changed. Cost often exceeds value.
No device should be connected when staring engine. Even a fused DC adaptor somketimes does not blow the fuse when spiked and will allow enough spike to pass to kill this delicate echip. Even mobile phones will suffer this problem pooof! gone within 10 seconds!

The eraticness may be a faulty charged batterty but I doubt it.

Please rate our help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on

My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

Tomtom ONE will not turn on

it may wel get power light on but if the battery has collapsed then it will take forever to accrue a minor amount of charge. USE the AC adaptor to charge it and see if whilst it is connected ( after hour) that you can turn it on and get a display.
You could also get a new battery for it if it does respond. failure could indicate that battery acid has leaked and done damage, even Lion batteries break down

Power connection broken

To be honest you'd be better off upgrading. The ONE 130S is essentially the "4th Edition" of the ONE with a new mount AND text to speech. You'll get more bang for your buck with the new device and you'll have the most up to date maps with their latest map guarantee (if there are newer maps or a new set of maps come out within 30 days, you can upgrade for free)

When i plug into car ok but when to mains nothing

First , let me say that the batteries do not fail very often. Answers here to your 3 questions in order ......
1. Your home mains charger is faulty. 2/ Your car charger is probably OK. 3/ Clip out the screen surround. Remove the 4 special STAR screws that are at the corners of the screen. Remove the main circuit board by taking out 4 smaller star screws and let it hang loose but still connected by its cables. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE BOARD CABLES. Remove the speaker . Under the speaker are 2 more screws holding a plastic bracket that clamps the battery. Remove these 2 screws and the battery clip comes off. Unplug the battery cable from the now loose main board and the battery can be removed. Fit new battery and reassemble in reverse order. NOTE , some tomtom 300's have a protective copper or foil sheild covering the main board. The screws holding the board cannot be seen until the foil is removed. Removing this foil and not repalcing it will render your tomtom more prone to interference although the tomtom will still work without it.

How do I recharge my Tom Tom One?

I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.

GPS Won't Turn On

Amazing what reading through the support page at TOMTOM reveals... I have the XL so no SD card to remove, but the support page explains that a hard reset by holding the power button takes 15 SECONDS. That's actually a really long time if you watch a clock. I pressed it and waited it out, and it worked. Powered right up. Not sure if I lost all my favorites and stuff but I have them backed up using TomTom Home anyway....
