    When I turn the unit to the on position, the screen lights up but it is blank. I have to push the reset button every time to start the unit working properly.

    TomTom would not turn off, so I set it to turn off when the external power source was disconnected. Came back to it later that night and now it will not turn on.

    Tom tom will not come on even though the green light indicates power is reaching the unit. Screen is blank and I am totally lost somewhere in Kent.

    I just got my TomTom One -- if I plug it into my laptop, will that charge the battery? For example, does it work like when I plug my ipod into my laptop to charge it? Or do I have to put it in my car and plug it in. Or does the darn thing already come charged?

  1. First , try a re-set through the 'reset' hole underneath the tomtom. 1 quick short press is all thats required. Unlike others suggest , you do not need to hold it in for anything longer than half a second. You should feel the switch 'click' as its a tactile switch. Don't press too hard as you can damage the switch and cause it to lock ON. Once pressed , try turning the tomtom on as normal. Sometimes a tomtom battery can drop below its normal "shelf" voltage ( normal is about 3.8 volts ). A tomtom charger has a protection circuit inside to stop or slow the current it gives out if there is a short. If your battery HAS dropped volts TOO MUCH ( less than 3 volts ) the charger can "see" the tomtom battery as a "short" and the charger therefore shuts down and doesnt charge the battery. You could leave the charger connected and HOPE that the very small amount of current it's putting out will eventualy bring the battery up over 3 volts. Once it is up near its "shelf" voltage ( called shelf voltage as that is the voltage the battery is at 'on the shelf' ie . when its not powering anything ) the charger will begin to charge as normal....... OR ... you can gain access to the battery and charge it from a bench power supply that has voltage and current meters. Once again , once the battery voltage gets something near 3.8 volts the normal tomtom charger can be used to charge it. You caould connect another normal battery to the tomtom battery just for a few seconds ( not recommended and can be a bit dangerous ) if the normal battery is such as a PP3 9v type it should bring up the tomtom battery to over 3.8 volts in a few seconds. The tomtom can then be charged as normal. .............. It is also possible that some internal IC's ( chips ) have blown inside the tomtom and unfortunatly this would require a specialist repair centre to replace them as they are really very very small and are not a normal soldering job. Good luck. ... if this post has helped you or interested you please rate the author.

Press the reset button underneath the tomtom with a paperclip for a few seconds when plugged in. This could take half an hour of resetting every 5 minutes and sometimes does the trick straightaway. If it still does not come on there might be something wrong with it and you might need to get it repaired.

Tom tom will not switch on when i try to charge it the led light does not come on i have hardly used my tom tom


What is your charging method? In car or house hold plug? Suggest that charger is not working (Green) if light on Tom Tom (at bottom near charger lead) is not lighting. Check your charger and see if you have an indicator light on it showing it is on. If yes, plug in Tom, then press and hold the "on" button for 15 seconds constinuously. Tom Tom should reboot.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture


Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

Tom tom one v1 Loose power connector


If the problem exists both when you use the vehicle power connector and the usb cable to your computer, then you have to assume that the problem is with the socket on the One. If it's still in warranty, I would send it back to Tom Tom for repair. Contact customer support for repair information.
