Could be many things, but my guess is a damaged track. The heat causes expansion and closes the gap. A kludgey test would be to pre heat it close to a warm source and then turn it on to see if the sound is relatively instant.

Finding the break without experinece and a very large magnifying flass may also be difficult. If you do find the break a very fine needle point soldering iron and solder is needed.

Hi,
The reason for your Tom-tom V2 not to have sound is due to a bad connection to the speaker. I am sure you have tried to reset the set. If yes please try to do the bellow mentioned steps.
Now it’s risky to take the back off as it is easy to damage screw poles if screws are tight. There is no guarantee that the problem will be fixed by tapping it with the back off, you can tap the back of the case where the speaker is anyway.
Lots of tom-toms have sound problems and it’s the cheap and nasty speakers they put in them in the first place.
Better to take it to a service centre and if its warranty make a claim

You need to unscrew 4 torx crews and pop out the back cover slowly. Remove the speaker's wire connector and check speaker resistance 3-4 ohm. Next reattach connector firmly and did a speaker test in volume preferences menu
Thank You for using Fixya.com

My ps3 slim keeps turning off after 30-40 minutes? After I leave it for a while it works again for 30 - 40 minutes until it happens again.


Hi.

It sounds like the console is overheating. Turn the console off and check the air vents for any build up of dust and clean them. Also make sure the console is in a well ventilated area.

No signal


I have a Tom Tom One and sometimes it behaves as if there are no satellites no matter how long it is switched on for but I now just drive off and within a few seconds (30 seconds at most) is it suddenly acquires the satellites and it's OK. It just seems to be a quirk of the device and it doesn't do it all the time.

If it still does not acquire satellites on the move then it is probably faulty and needs to be repaired.

No sound


First try plugging in headphones and seeing if that works. If it does, your speaking is history and you need to contact TomTom tech. support. They will replace the speaker for you once you send your model to them. If that does not work either, you will still need to contact TomTom, but the problem will be very different. There is a slight chance the sound board for it has gone bad. I am not sure what they will do for that problem, but they should replace the unit for you.
