Tomtom one not poweringup

My tomtom one blew the mini blade 3 amp fuse in the 12v car charger. The screen went dead and would not power up.I have replaced the fuse and put on charge.After removing from charge the screen still does not power up but now have a constant green led lit next to standby.Tried to reset on many times with no joy.Any suggestions gratefully received.

Lofty same just happened to me, following great deal of searching, my conclusion is that over voltage has fried regulator chip in tomtom, the reason you have green light is because at different part of power board. Approx repair cost if damage is not too bad (50% cannot be repaired) is £70.

TOMTOM will have a look for nothing, and give you a quote, if don;t want to proceed they will send it back for free also.

Good luck.

Why does my tomtom 300 car charger keepblowing fuse


Problem with cigarette lighter socket in the car, check fuse under dash/glovebox/bonnet. You'll have to find it, different on cars.
Replace fuse with a 3 amp and try again.

I push start button and hold this more than 2 seconds but the starting screen is not opening i also connect to battery charger from car and then pushing again to start but no reaction i have tomtom...


The issue could be a low power in the Tomtom and that is the reason it is not switching on. Now here the problem could be with the charging cable/wire from the car charger which might not be giving power to the GPS. Check for the fuse at the connector.
If the fuse is blown off the power wont goes into the GPS and it wont get charged and wont swich on. Look at the tip of the connector which has that spring like contact. You will be able to turn that to open it and find a fuse. Replace it with the right "amp" as the existing one. You will get one from Radioshack.
If you have already checked it and sure it is charging could be issue with Tomtom itself..Good luckKris..

We have a Tomtom XL with a cigarette lighter connector; our car does not haveone of these . Is there an alternative cable/connector?


the only alternative is to hardwire it into the car, and you must utilize the car charger to supply the correct voltage (you can not supply 12V or it will blow out your tomtom)

your tomtom will not take more then 5v @ 2 amps so you need to go through the car charger by taking it apart and attaching the power from the car to the car charger input leads.

i dont recommend you try this if you do not fully understand what im saying, because you can easily ruin your gps by hooking it up wrong.


any decent mechanic should be able to do this in less then 20 minutes.

curious as to what kind of car you have that doesn't have some sort of aux power.

have you looked under the dash or the clove box...sometimes they are put out of sight, but i dont think i have ever seen a car without one.

I plugged the system in, the screen would not come on


Hi.


First check the charger connection. If an alternative charger is available test different chargers.


If the Tomtom is starting, then try first resetting your TomTom.

To reset the TomTom follow the instructions on TomTom website, clicking here: TomTom, portable GPS car navigation systems - Factory reset .

If the Nav is still freezing or is dead after reset, then there is an internal fault.


In both situations the alternatives are going to a TomTom shop or calling the TomTom service number listed on manual and following the instructions given by their representatives.

If the unit is completely dead, as a first thing better going to a TomTom shop and asking to test a different charger.


The charger can also be tested at home using a multimeter on charger connector.

Regards.

Tomtom only charges on fast charger base. Why?


if it is not charging in the car then the socket in the car is dead, blown fuse or defective socket..

Tomtom fuses


Take both the charger (which should have a output rating on it) and the blown fuses down to Radio Shack, Jack. They'll help you out.

Gps won power up when car charger burn frm fuse


Unfortunately it sounds like when the car charger went bad it also did in the board on your tt. It would be cheaper to just purchase another unit than to get this one repaired out of warranty. My advice would be to sell it on ebay. People buy these all the time for spare parts.
Hope this helps

Tomtom 'Mount to the car screen'-travelling voice fails


Are you using a generic charger? or the official TomTom one? While they might all be 12v output (car)- 5v input (unit end) they are different ampages etc. If you are using a generic car charger then a lot of GPS units consider it to be a computer and so goes to docking/sync mode.
The unit may only sound the voice properly if you running off a tomtom charger.
