SOURCE: battery will not hold charge on tomtom 300

TomTom will not service tomtoms out of the warranty period. I tried them and they dont . They say / argue that there are many companies offering service . I would suggest that the battery is user replaceable with a little bit of DIY knowledge. You need the correct screwdrivers whicth are Torx type. You can buy them cheaply in sets from size T5 up to T20. First remove screen surround by pushing the windscreen mount clip underneath the tomtom , towards the screen. This will push the surrounf out enough for you to grab the bottom of it and pull it off. Next unscrew the 4 torx screws located in 4 holes around the screen. Next , extract the tomtom 'innards' by easing the assembley out of the front of the case. Next , unscrew the 2 torx screws that hold the speaker in place. Next , remove the 2 smaller torx screws UNDER the speaker. This will then allow removal of the plastic clamp that holds the cylinder shaped battery in place.NEXT , unplug the battery ( theres 3 wires go to a little plug on the circuit board ) and withdraw it through the gap left by the speaker. Fit NEW BATTERY ( available off ebay ) and reassemble in reverse order. Of course all this should be done very carefully. DO NOT RUSH. Work on a clear bench and put something soft on the bench to protect the tomtom. DO NOT force anything , it should all come apart easily. If you are unsure , inexperienced at messing with fiddly things or just plain nervous then get someone else to do it.

SOURCE: My TomTom 510 will not hold charge and now cannot be switched on

If you are not bothered about using it on battery your tt should work if you have it hooked up to a external power supply such as the car charger or home charger. If it doesn't work using either of the power supplies then your problem is deeper than just needing a new battery. Check the pins on the bottom of your tt to see if they are bent, or out of place. The most common problem for them is the negative pin on the far left with the lcd screen facing away from you gets bent or is not making contact even though the green light is on.
Hope this helps

MY TOMTOM GPS NEED TO BE TO RESET


Hello,

I will advice you reset the unit, this might help fix the abnormality with the white screen problem. follow these procedure to reset your tom tom gps.
Make sure your battery is charged before you begin. TomTom suggested allowing your device to charge for at least 2 hours before resetting it. Remove your device's SD card from the card slot.
Find the "Reset" pinhole button on the bottom of the device.
Hold the "Reset" button down for 10 to 15 seconds or until your device resets itself. You will need a flattened paperclip or another small metal object to reach inside the pinhole.
Power the TomTom back on and insert your SD Card. You have now reset your TomTom gps and this should fix the white screen problem.

Take care.

Tomtom 510 doesn't reset


Before you keep resetting your tomtom I would intall a new battery. Call your closest "batteries plus store" or "radioshack store" and then try to reset it, it might be only the battery and nothing to do with the reseting.....

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.
