Question about Tomtom GO 510 GPS Receiver
I accidentally connected the wrong mains charger my Tom Tom 510. (but only 6V dc as opposed to the correct 5V dc charger) This resulted in a smell of electrical burning and a bright white screen which I was unable to switch off. After several hours the battery was drained and the screen returned to the normal off state. It it worth mending?
Thank you for your help.
Most likey its not worth fixing. Look at it like this. While it may have only been 6 volts versus 5. One volt in a 5 volt system is a 20 percent increase.
If you took something that ran on 120 volts and plugged it into a 144 volt source you can figure the damage that would do.
