Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

Tomtom one won't switch on.....faulty switch!

As with most others, my neighbour's Tomtom one won't switch on. Fault is the main on/off switch which has all but disintegrated and come away from the pcb due to too much force being used to switch on. I managed to get the thing working occasionally by judicious use of plastic tape to hold it together but it really needs a new switch. Anyone know where I can get one?

I have a Samsung LN52A550P3FXZA. The TV does not come on.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

UPS - Battery Fault


UNINTERRUPTABLE POWER SUPPLY
Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. Including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. If one battery is faulty in a set of batteries it will causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault. A faulty charging circuit will not charge the batteries and will also cause a fault condition.

Lower powered and cheaper type UPS are switch over types, when the mains supply fails, the UPS switches over to the battery and inverter in milli-seconds which then supplies mains power to the computer and peripherals. A faulty inverter circuit and or flat batteries won’t deliver standby power when the mains supply fails.

NOTE the power waveform from these UPS is a pseudo sine wave (i.e. not a true sine wave).

The true UPS types are usually the higher KVA units (over 1500 VA) that supply continuous mains power. The mains power is connected to a charger which charges the batteries and the inverter draws power from these batteries and converts it to true sine wave mains power to the computer equipment, therefore there is no switch over time lag when the mains supply fails.

My 2002 Pontiac Sunfire won't start, not even with a boost. Any idea? No electrical input at all.


Hi.
If there is no power to anything when the ignition is switched on then you have a fault in the main power circuit which could be the main fuse is faulty. Check the main power fuse's positioned by the battery. Also check the main power and earth/ground cables from the battery.
Hope this helps.

When ups is on it willgo to falt mode we have conected in tv


I assue you connected the UPS to a TV to test the UPS unit.

Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. If one battery in a set of batteries that is faulty and causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault. A faulty charging circuit will not charge batteries and will cause a fault condition.

These lower powered and cheaper type UPS are switch over types, when the mains supply fail, the UPS switches over to the battery and inverter in milli-seconds which then supplies mains power. A faulty inverter circuit and or flat batteries won’t deliver standby power when the mains supply fails.

No sound in tomtom


The speaker has gone open circuit ( faulty speaker is common on this model ) or the headphone jack in the bottom is faulty ( also common on this model ) . The headphone socket has a switch inside it that switches the internal speaker OFF when an external speaker is plugged in . If this switch stays open you get NO VOICE .
You can check easily to see which fault you have.
  1. Take the SD card out
  2. switch on the tomtom
  3. do you hear the drums sound ?
  4. if you do ...... the speaker is OK
  5. Insert the SD card and wait till it loads up
  6. tap screen then select preferences
  7. move through and select " change voice "
  8. Check to see if you have a voice selected
  9. Return to main nav screen
  10. Tap screen just above lower left ( in the rectangle )
  11. The volume control should be UP
  12. if you have no sound when tapped here , the likely cause is open switch on the socket .
  13. Open up the tomtom , and clean switch carefully
  14. make sure when a PLUG is inserted the switch opens and when the plug is REMOVED the contacts close. properly
  15. Good luck , you have probably fixed it by now.
Please rate this if its been found to be useful to you.

Volume is at 100% yet sound is very low/hard to hear


Hi,
Some TomTom one speakers are known to have faults develop. Usually the speaker goes ipen circuit resulting in no sound at all. other can simply go distorted. It might be that your speaker has gone faulty. ( some scrap laptops might yield a suitable replacement speaker as they often will fit )

Another fault common on TomTom one ( early version ) is the extension speaker socket on the base of the TomTom becomes dirty or it can be stressed if you have ever had need to use the socket. The socket also acts as a switch to turn the internal speaker off when the socket is uses. It is very easy to end up with a bent contact on this socket so that even when any plug is removed the switch contact on the socket remains open. This results in sound being cut-off to the internal speaker or the sound might become low or distorted.

I would recommend you check out both these possibilities . Please let me know via this forum how you get on.

Good luck.

No sound


Some TomToms ( especialy early ones ) are reported to have faulty speakers. Its most likely this is the fault on yours. Another problem particular to TomTom one is the external speaker jack on the base of the TomTom. Thsi jack socket also acts as a switch to turn off the internal speaker when and external one is used. When a plug is inserted it opens 2 contacts and they colse again after any plug is removed. If these contacts have remained open or been bent or become dirty this will cause no sound out of the internal speaker. However , there are routes the TomTom circuit uses to get sound to the speaker. One is direct ...... This is how you hear the TomTom Drums sound ...and the other is for 'most' other sounds , via the external speaker jack.
This gives us a possible check on any report of faulty sound as follows.
If you hear the TomTom drums OK , then this proves the speaker is OK too. BUT , if you hear no further sounds after the TomTom drums then it will be almost certainly be the speaker jack socket thats at fault.

Good luck

TomTom One GPS fault


I would send it back to tomtom again and tell them it is definatly not finding satellites. Hopefully they will find the fault this time. if you prefer not to send it to tomtom but have it checked somewhere else , then maybe you can search online with google as I know there are at least 3 places to have it looked at but I won't mention them here as its not a forum for advertising. There are several reasons why its not picking up sats but there are 3 most likely causes. A/ Contact with top antenna board has become broken / unplugged ~ tomtom one and one V2. - B/ Ribbon cable has become unplugged ~ tomtom Go - C/ software faulty or faulty sd card . ......... Most likely cause is faulty file on SD card .
