If you have the green light lit on top of the tomtom but it won't switch on , then you have a condition commonly known as "the Green Light Syndrome". Most likely cause is blown components inside the tomtom that regulate voltage. The reason they blow is usually due to user connecting incorrect charger ( such as a 12v one for a phone ) or sometimes the tomtom charger goes faulty and instead of ouputting 5 voltas it outputs 12 volts and damages the tomtom inside. the parts are not easily repalced and require a specialist repair centre that has good experience of repairing tomtoms. You cannot repair it yourself using a normal soldering iron. Good luck.

Hello, i have problem with TA-709 headphones batteries, i need to know if is there any possible replacement,


You are correct about 1.5 volt not being shown as rechargeable. However that 1.2 should be enough. You need to be able to test those batteries or buy brand new alkaline ones.

I just received a Rankin Delux Commercial Heater from a friend. He stated that everything works well except the igniter. I suspect it will need to be replaced and I am seeking advice on how easy or...


Piezo ignitors are very easy to replace, most have a male/female connection to the lead. Just pull the lead and unscrew the nut behind the plate and it should come off. A few will have a spade connector and these are also very easy to replace.Replacement ignitors are very cheap just make sure it is like for like swap. There a push piezo ignitors and electronic ignitors on the market.

My sansa just stopped working one day & would not charge. As nothing had happened to the unit to damage it I just assumed the battery was gone. I ordered a replacement battery and installed it - it...


Buy it a new cable. Get one marked as USB 2.0
I have a ebook reader that was not charging via USB, the cable not fitting snugly.
I works fine with another cable, and, yes, it is a nice, snug fit.
The socket on the unit might be damaged or there may be a fault on the circuit board, but a loose connector is more likely.

How do you replace the battery?


once you've removed the four Torx screws, get your thumbnail between the silver top and the dark grey back and prise the top open by about 1/4". Then lift and ease the front out.

There are two leads holding the two pieces together (one for the battery and the other for the speaker) but these are long enough not to break and once the unit is open they are on connectors anyway.

hope this helps.

How can i get the adapter/charger connector at the back of my computer fixed i cannot get power but the adapter is not broke.


Most times it is a break in the wiring just as it enters the laptop plug.

To test it you need to use a multimeter and a couple of needles

First put one of the test leads inside the laptop end of the connector and the other on the outside to see if you get a reading if not then:

With the power OFF stick a needle into the insulation of both wires of the OUTPUT lead, NOT the MAINS near to the transformer unit.

Hook the test meter probes to the needles re-apply the power and see if you get a reading, it will be around 20v dc so there is no chance of getting zapped.

If there is power in the cable it is down to repairing or replacing the connector which you can buy from most good electronics suppliers

My Tomtom has been disconnected from the computer


Reconnect it to your comuter or buy a wall charger for it.Otherwise buy an incar charger-they are the most useful.

Connecting GPS device to bike's electrical system


I misunderstood, I thought your battery was discharging DURING the ride. Put your meter in current mode. connect one lead to the battery and one lead to your TomTom wiring while the unit is in the cradle. How much current is is drawing? Now remove the TomTom from the cradle. Is it still drawing the same amount? If not, the TomTom is drawing power even while off and that is draining your battery.

Usb port in Tomtom 130 not working properly


It sounds like your mini usb connector is damaged or one of the components near to it. If you're handy you can buy a replacement and solder it in. You will need a very fine tip soldering iron and a magnifying glass. The repair can be quite challenging as the components are surface mounted. If it's a damaged component near the USB connector that is damaged then this wont solve the problem.
I can fix it for you for a small fee if you dont want to attempt repair.
I've repaired about 20 tomtom units with similar problems. I charge around £35 for this including return postage
