Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
My Tom Tom one V2 has a sound problem. The sound does not work until the unit has been switched on for 30 40 minutes. After that it will work fine until the next time it is used.
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.

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
